New York's American International Toy Fair February 20, 2011
More than just castles! Seemingly rebranded every 2 years or so, LEGO Kingdoms is not content just to be kings, knights, and castles. Oh no. This year the line brings us peasants galore, chickens, goats, pigs, and various items from the villages surrounding the homes of the kings and queens. I applaud this variety.
The most interesting set is the Mill Village Raid, which includes a windmill, unhappy townsfolk, and some ne'er-do-well soldiers looking for a good time. Hide your goats, kids. For the Castle collector, this is probably going to be the can't-miss set of the season. Smaller sets like the more traditional King's Carriage Ambush include shiny gold crowns, fancy horse headgear, and some bad guys. (Not trolls or orcs, sadly.)
The Blacksmiths Attack includes an anvil, two figures, and a chicken. The chicken, you must remember, is the international sign of chaos in a comedy motion picture, so I assume some wacky stuff is going on in this package. Adding to your forts, the Escape from Dragon's Prison features gates, horses, cannons, and brave men-- but no actual dragons. Ah well, at least we got a few of those in the 1990s.
