Since the 2013 LEGO Castle line is very new, and it’s after a long break in the LEGO Castle series. Although we talked about them before, I thought we should spend a little more time reviewing them. So here we go! Knights and dragons… well, at least one dragon… are back! 🙂
The 2013 LEGO Castle line includes six sets, the #70400 LEGO Castle Forest Ambush for $11.99, the #70401 LEGO Castle Gold Getaway for $19.99, the #70402 LEGO Castle The Gatehouse Raid for $29.99, the #70403 LEGO Castle Dragon Mountain for $49.99, and the #70404 LEGO Castle King’s Castle for $99.99. I will share the reviews of the guys over at the BrickShow, so you can take a good look.

There are also two smaller sets in the new LEGO Castle line, but they are pretty self-explanatory, so I won’t include video-reviews here as more videos could make this page difficult to load. However you can see detailed images of all of the LEGO Castle sets at the Online LEGO Shop.
Some LEGO fans complain that the new LEGO Castle line is a bit boring, especially compared to the previously released LEGO Castle Fantasy Era sets. But there are some nice features of the new LEGO Castle sets that may not be so flashy, but really stand out. I particularly like the modular design of the larger LEGO Castle sets; a very thoughtful detail that allows you to set up your LEGO Castle in so many different ways. The minifigs are also nice with a freshened up look of old classics. So what do you think? Are you happy with the new LEGO Castle line? Or will you pass?
