I agree, other than the Forest Ambush as a troop builder set, the only other nice set is the King's Castle. The castle seems to have a more functional design instead of the usual facade. The inside is very well done and I don't think I've ever seen the second floor extend so far. I wish they'd get away from that blue and grey combination. Overall I'm very disappointed as Space and Castle were my favorite themes as a kid and I'm fairly happy with Galaxy Squad so far. It seems they put the worst designers on Castle of late. The dragon and carriage sets remind me of juniorized crap we saw in the late 90's. Where are the buildings? The gate isn't bad but why do you need a gate when the entrance goes nowhere!
They need to get back to modular castle wall building from the 80's and flesh the Castle world out. Tons of possibilities for remakes from the 80's with a blacksmith shop, armor shop, guarded inn, gate, simple hinged wall that can be connected by technic pins. They can also incorporate siege engines like catapults, ballista, battering rams again with walls that could explode or breakdown when hit. The cool thing is overtime you can build a large walled castle by adding onto different sets.
Now just add the different factions for the conflict and you're done.
, contact me if you'd like to perform trades from my inventory. I'm looking for original genosian fighers, second version a-wing fighters and tie bombers. I may be interested in other sets so let me know what you have.
