0

With only a few Kingdoms sets released in the last two years, fans of the Castle theme weren’t satisfied over the lack of medieval sets despite the release of the Lord of the Rings sets. The wait for new Castle sets may be over in 2013 because over on Brickshop.nl, they have listed 5 “new” Castle sets that have an expected release date of August 1, 2013. The same sets are also listed under the “Legends” category, which are sets that are re-released due to it being very popular many years after their initial run. There’s no details about the sets but there’s speculation that the upcoming Castle sets could be a re-release of the older sets or a release with updated pieces. This is definitely unexpected news and we’ll be waiting to hear more about them.
