Great review Martin! Thanks for the pictures!
One correction though, if I may! The flame goes on top of the highest tower! Light it up and you'll thing you actually have an Eye of Sauron  ;)

Thanks for the review, Martin!

Though I would LOVE to have this castle, being analytic two things prevents me from buying it. First, of course, is price - you just can't imagine how expensive that thing is down here . And second, is that it can't be dismantled. This is the first review that I've seen where this issue was addressed - thanx!

With that in mind, I personally would buy a "regular" castle instead. Not that it would be any cheaper, but at least I could put it out of the way. If you live in a small house space is always a premium, and is something you always have to take into consideration.
Cheers!

A good, analytical review, Martin.    As you say, Martin, lots of play value but not particularly practical in real life terms as a castle.  The impossibility of easily disassembling it will be a major drawback for many households, but one found out too late. 

As regards weighing, on our kitchen scales you can, for example, put a box on the scales before turning them on and they then zero when turned on and it is possible to balance another item on the box to weigh it.  Would that work, although you need a box which allows you to still see the readout, so it may be a block of wood with a box on top or maybe better  still a tray.

I'd like the flame part number, please, Martin if you would be so kind.
