FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 8

CASTLE IS BACK!! :D

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 8

It has a large gold piece for the top balcony. 2 Knight minifigures for each faction.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 8

I enjoyed building this set. Has 3 different parts that connect together.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 6

Lego is expensive in Canada unfortunately. I see this having added value once you have the Castle set 70404.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 8

Castle theme is great. Not Lego's most popular but a classic none the less.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 6

Regular set. Required to increase full series value if collecting.

PACKAGING | Score: 9

Good packaging. Lots of different scenarios and scenes on the back.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 8

Lego usually increases eventually. I believe this set and theme will be no exception.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 8

Because of it's height, it will stand out. I notice that most when looking at it. The 2 Knights look good.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 8

A must have for the Castle '13 series collector. As it will connect to the Castle 70404. Good appeal. 2 Knight figures (each faction) are nice. A tad pricey but my country of origin has a bit to do with that.
