NO expert on this subject (again) but having steck corners doesn't mean it WOULD be possible to customize and expand these castles????
I ask this becuase I read many threads and comments about the imposibilitty of this new castles to expand.
I just wonder....  :-\

All in good time... I'll experiment after this weekend...

But to tell the truth, I don't think its possible...I have not tried it yet, but the older steck pieces have different connection endings from these new ones!

It's looking very well, but does seem rather complicated with so many different shaped pieces.  ???
I should think there will be a need to keep referring to the instructions. (at least I certainly would  :lol: )
Thank you Panos for a great review   :clap:  look forward to seeing the completed castle.

Great review Wolf Knight! :)
The castle is looking ok,
and I can see how some parts may be very useful... ;D

(Cheng, you might really like some of the parts of this castle... ;) :o )

Cant wait till tomorrow's review Sir Wolf. :wave:
Steck is BACK! <:>

Thank you for your in-progress review and the pictures you've posted, Panos!  It's great so far. :)

Based on the pictures and what you've written, it seems that even though this new building system is a sort of Steck and System-X hybrid, it doesn't look like it will work well with either.  In terms of stability and looks (no visible holes!), it appears to be an improvement on System-X, yet it does seem like there are a lot of very specialized parts that could be confusing, especially to children.  The one thing I do like about Steck and System-X is that there are just a few core flexible building parts.  I'm not seeing this with this new system.

Thank you so much for taking the time for such a detailed review. Your pictures and explenations are excellent!

It really does look very good but I am still slightly hesitant to buy it, as it does seem to have limitations in regards to being used with Steck.

Thanks for the review, Panos.
Now, I'm jealous and I'm gonna order all the new sets with figures. I won't buy any castle though I think they're both great, my son has 7 castles in his room already, and I cannot pretend to buy a new one for him...But the figures! I want a lot.
Please keep teasing us and show some close ups on the new weapons and helmets, at least just for meeeeeee! (Or I won't show you my Nürnberg shields!)
Thanks.
