LEGO will be releasing another retro-type set that pays homage to some of the original LEGO themes and for this year, it will be the Classic Knights (5004419) set. There are now official images of the set from Brick Merge which shows some closer details of the Classic Knights set.

Like with the 2014 Classic Spaceman Minifigure (5002812) and the 2015 Classic Pirates Minifigure (5003082) sets, the Classic Knights (5004419) set will contain a minifigure from a particular theme and in this case, a Crusader Knight from the LEGO Castle theme. The build itself is a small ballista that is very similar to the 1986 Siege Cart (6012) but with updated parts. There’s also a small booklet showing off some of the various knights that LEGO has released throughout the years.

The Classic Knights (5004419) set will be available starting June 30-July 10 with purchases of $50 or more at LEGO Brand Stores and on SHop@Home.

LEGO Castle Fantasy Era Sets Coming Back in 2016?

In 2013, LEGO brought back the LEGO Castle them and to say the least, it was a pretty underwhelming theme in my opinion. It was a one-off wave which featured the blue Lion Knights fighting against the red Dragon Knights and it combined things from the Kingdoms and the 2007 Castle subthemes. The sets came out in the Spring of 2013 and there were no subsequent waves in 2014 and won’t be any in the first half of 2015.

However, there’s a rumor on Eurobricks that LEGO might be bringing the LEGO Castle theme back in 2016. According to BrickJagger, there was a memo sent out to a LEGO Store manager and it said that a new Castle theme would be coming out late 2015/mid 2016. This new wave was said to be “a lot like the Castle theme from a few years ago, the one with the Dwarves and Trolls.” The sets that is being referred to is the 2007 Castle subtheme which was known as the Fantasy Era. These sets were pretty popular among fans and they had an assortment of different minifigures that were included such as the ones mentioned. Given that the most recent Castle sets have been retired and the Hobbit sets are pretty much done, a new fantasy theme would be a good addition and provides some variety in the different LEGO themes.

This piece of news is pretty interesting but it could also be completely false so take it with a grain of salt. I’ll keep following up on … Continue

LEGO Castle Forest Ambush (70400) Review

When I first heard of the possible return of LEGO Castle sets late last year, I was very excited. Since I didn’t come back to LEGO until the Kingdoms line was on their way out and didn’t have a chance to get the older Castle sets from the 80’s and 90’s. Here we have the first set of the 2013 Castle sets, the Forest Ambush (70400). The set contains 90 pieces and retails for $11.99, about $0.13/piece. The contents of the box contains two unnumbered bags, and one instruction booklet.

As you can see from the image above, there will be a new LEGO Castle minisite coming next month. Right now, you can play a Castle minigame if you go to the temporary site. The object of the game is to collect gems, coins, fruits, and other items to earn higher points and to avoid hazards like sword-wielding enemies, rocks, and falling trees. Thanks to Rucifeld for the heads up.


LEGO Castle Sets Showing Up in Toys R Us Stores?

Castle sets on the shelves

The return of the LEGO Castle sets may be sooner than you think. According to Brickset, a worker at a Colorado Toys R Us store has seen the sets already on the shelves. If this is true, then the release date has been pushed up considerably since we were expecting them later on in the year. You may want to take a little trip down to your local Toys R Us stores to see if they’re on the shelves yet.
