Ahhhh, now THAT is a cool castle set! Ok, sure, it doesn’t have a baseplate unifying the set. And LEGO’s box art obnoxiously includes a bushel of hay for that there horsie to eat, but come ON this set rocks! All sorts of details are throughout, with nice use of traditionally non-castle pieces (such as wheel wells as window / doorway arches). The buildings are hinged like Castle set buildings of yore and, as has been much discussed, there’s a whole frakkin’ LEGO turkey for your mini-figs to eat after a hard day’s work.

The set was revealed at BrickCon and will be available in January for about $100. How sweet it is…
