FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 8

CASTLE IS BACK!! This set reminds me a lot like the Dragon Wagon 6056. Cool.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 7

Treasure chest. Chain.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 9

I liked building this set because it brought back memories and was interesting to build as well.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 7

Unfortunately It was purchased in Canada so the value will be seen later. Because of the resemblence to the Dragon Wagon 6056 it may have some sort of added value. To me anyway :D

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 8

Castle isn't Lego's most popular. Classic none the less.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 8

Regular set.

PACKAGING | Score: 7

Good packaging.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 7

Hard to tell. I'm sure there will be an increase in the future but related to the other sets in the series, I'm not sure.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 8

I love the look of the wagon. It's defenitely the showpiece of the set.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 8

This set and set 70400 go great together. By itself it holds its own in appeal. I'm not sure I would of gone with a Jail for a wagon. I think a supply/transport wagon may have been a better choice.
