    Castle minifigures; the first Castle battlepack

    Written by (AFOL , gold-rated reviewer) in Netherlands,

    Overall 5 bricks: Concerning the content not the greatest set of course, but the 5 bricks are for the fact that this was the first Castle battlepack. Simple, probably not too expensive and usefull. I'm happy that, in contrast to the 375 minifigures, the torso's are printed in stead of stickers.

    Building 1 brick: the assembling of 3 minifigures can not be called building. Bought new they were probably already assembled.

    Parts 4 bricks: You get three soldiers with different torso's in different colors with for each one a sword. Better would have been maybe one spear or axe and missing are shields, so one brick distracted.

    Playability 4 bricks: Battlepacks like this one are always very playable, the set could be added to the 375 Castle or the 383 Joust for more playing fun.

    Value 5 bricks: how to give a value to something this hard to find, on Bricklink only one to find for €20,00 in the USA. I found it in my leftover minifigure collection and would not sell it for that price. For me, finding it by luck for free, definitly 5 bricks !

    Lego Steve's Review

    Written by (AFOL , gold-rated reviewer) in United Kingdom,

    The first basic army building set (one of many in the future) this set was released in 1978, it’s a nice simple 3 figure set which was actually released fully assembled in a clear plastic box with a cardboard back, rather than the boxes we all know and love.

    The actual printed torso emblem’s where not available in other sets until a year later (clearly LEGO had the next years sets ready when they released this one). It should be noted that of the three helms that started the LEGO Castle theme, this one is still being used in sets of today (as are the axes, swords and lances from this era).
