Announcing LEGO 10223 Kingdoms Joust

Post by Octan on 10/1/2011, 12:44 am

From The Brothers Brick
As we speak, this new set is being unveiled at BrickCon in Seattle, and probably the Great Western Train Show in the UK. While most of the Brothers Brick are at BrickCon enjoying seeing this in person, the honor falls to me to share the set with our readers.

Before I saw the photos, I found myself wondering how a joust set could possibly command a price of $119 US. Now that I’ve seen them, I understand, this is more than a joust, it’s an entire medieval scene. There are little bits of buildings, some wall, and a nicely detailed royal viewing gallery (with some nice furniture and figures, shown below). There’s also a nice array of figs, and what looks like an update to the Black Falcons.

Flame, please stop talking about Brickarms. We know you like it, but yet you go advertising it just as much as cars! (in the US, there isn't a day were you don't see 5 car ads, even when you don't really watch TV)

Truly amazing! Smile It looks like a throw back to classic castle sets, while making it more modern, and more advanced. So a big Thumbs Up to LEGO.

At the price it's being sold for, who would buy it?

The price isn't that bad, considering you can use VIP points and get it down to around $100, I am going to buy it, but I am currently out of VIP points I would use to get the price down.

For a toy, 100 is still a lot IMO.

Wait, that is a 10XXX set and costs over 100?

Wow... I remember when that would have been a 50-70 buck set.
