This huge big castle was literally a case of save the best for last. The Black knights were going out in this cycle and this castle was probably added to the 1992 release to ensure that it got to the market.

The success of the Pirate theme over the past 3 years or so probably prompted the creation of this set - a large Black Knight ship released in 1992.

The other US miniset in 1992 was part of a value pack in the US. It has a ghost in a tower and a guard.

The only Gold Lion set produced in 1992 was a small promo-pack in a polybag or in the US boxed as 1695. This is the last Gold Lion set produced.

1991 also introduced us to the Wolfpack, and the smaller (medium) size of their main base (this set) would also be an indication of the small size of the subtheme (only 5 sets total had wolfpack figures), with only 3 (including 6085) released in 1992.

The smaller of the 2 Wolfpack sets released in 1992, this wagon was an impressive upgrade over the previous wagons and features hidden compartments by the way of hinges.

However, the Black Knights continue to shine in the promo sets, especially in the US. This is the small Black Knights boat.

... and an archer. 1596, 1547 and this set was packaged together as 1597 and was a US-only promo. It was as if Lego was trying to get rid of the extra inventory before the end of the Black Knights...

Another US-only Black Knights, this set was included as part of a 5-set promo pack (1967) which also included 2 Town sets, a space set and a pirates set. It was some sort of Sampler for all the (then) 4 themes in 1993.

Bricklist notes
1994 was a quiet year, the only sets were promos and most of these were US-only. The grandest of these Dragon Master sets of the year is this one.
