Rated 4 out of 5 by from Although I love this set, I wish it was more ambitious, with a full tower that could be opened to view the rooms. This feels more like an add-on to an as-yet not released Dark Castle. The dragon is the centrepeice, sinister and menacing. The wizard has great detailing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh, the dragon! I bought this set for my husband's 30th birthday. We had seen it assembled at our local Lego store, and were blown away by the dragon. The size, articulation and detail of the dragon compared to the Lego dragons of our youth was amazing, and made it a worthwhile purchase on it's own. He was thrilled with it, and out it and the catapult together in record time. I assembled the castle portion, and while it wasn't hard or time consuming, I did enjoy some of the details like the spiral staircase and spiderweb door. This set is great, has a lot of playability, and great potential to be turned in to something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent edition to the Castle Series! When I first saw this set, I instantly thought of Lego 6082 Fire Breathing Fortress, and specifically, 6076 Dark Dragon’s Den. I wasn’t a huge fan of the Dragon Masters subtheme in the early 90s, but the dragon sold me on it. I have to say compared to the old dragon of the 90s, this new one looks amazing, and very sinister. The colors, the detail, and definitely the wings, are superb. Boy, that tail. I had that tail smack down the Kings Knight a few times already. Overall, the figures are great. I liked the design of the princess, and without doubt, the best was the wizard. The detail was amazing. The older wizards looked like they were tinkering in magic and they were novice. This wizard looks professional, and will take care of business if threatened. The detail is amazing on him. I would have like to have seen one additional minifigure in this set; perhaps a Kings Knight archer. We are fighting a dragon aren’t we? Also, a horse would have been nice. What is a knight without a horse! I’m trying to be conscious of the price point, but the set would have greatly benefited from those additions. The set itself is definitely pretty to look at. I love the spiral staircase, and the design of the outpost in general, but it feels a bit small. It doesn’t feel complete. However, within its size, the attention to detail is great. The construction of the outpost almost feels to me like whoever designed it grew up with the classic castle sets. Certain Lego element usage and some of the details made me feel that way. It’s definitely a plus. I love the catapult. The design is perfect. I wish I had 15 of them. The wizard and the dragon sold me on the set. They are the stars of the show. This is definitely a set to get. I love it. A nice play experience would be to mix 70401 Gold Getaway and 70400 Forest Ambush with this set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HANDS OFF MY TREASURE all in all a lovely box set, put it together with my eldest son who loves it and will play with it for hours, lovely little detail pieces in this, i like the wizard dude myself and the mouse with its mouse hole. only thing i would say against it is the amount of other things you can make with this set, your a bit limited, but with other lego bits it has some dream bits in to use, very happy with it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice set This set is a great one for those who already have started collecting LEGO Castle sets, whether classic or modern. I love the potion room, spiral staircase, and mini-figures. I for one always love the heavy armor pieces, so I like the main lion soldier. The set's spiral staircase works exceptionally well and can hitch on so that it wont collapse back together. I also like the keys, as they help make the potion room look more realistic. The wizard is also nice, since he has red gloves, cape, and cool wand. The only issue is that the dragon is somewhat bulky looking, and is overly large comparatively to the the mountain. On the other hand, the catapult matches size exactly and comes with cool gold spears attached to the front. It is a great set overall, especially for Castle collectors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a dragon! I was so excited to see the Castle series come back. I like the LOTR and Hobbit, but I'm also a fan of the original Castle stuff. The building itself is a tad skimpy, there are a few very tiny rooms. The minigs, namely the very evil wizard and princess are a good addition, and of course, the dragon! The dragon is large and very playable. Like the Dinosaurs from the Dino series, it's more of a toy. If you missed out on the previous dragon sets, here's your chance to get one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's All About the Dragon I bought this set for the kids, because there is a lot for them to do with the features included. In one set, you have several crucial elements of good castle and fantasy playability. You have the fierce beast, evil wizard, princess who needs to be rescued, a small fortress, treasure, a large catapult, and good and bad soldiers (including the brave knight with armor). The minifigure selection is good. You have two Lion soldiers, one being the knight. They have a sword, shield, and spear among them. I really like the metallic helmet rather than just a gray color. The bad guy soldier comes with an interesting helmet and a large sword. Then there is the evil wizard with a unique hat to complement his outfit. He also has an nice staff, which you build. Finally, you have the princess with a small crown and two different faces. All of the minifigures are quite colorful compared to some themes. The boys really seem to enjoy them. The star of the set is of course the dragon. It is fairly large once put together. The wings can move along with the mouth and arms and legs. It is quite posable and is made from several pieces. A good chunk of the value of the set is in the dragon. A small fortress is also included. It has several small chambers. Most of these little rooms can only accommodate one minifigure. The setup with the cheese and goblet on one side with the rat outside is a bit amusing. Spiral steps lead up to the small prison chamber. Above that is a small room with a mysterious red crystal, and above that is the top, where a minifigure can stand. Another section includes a small potion room hidden by a spider web. Above this is the platform where the dragon can be mounted. A bridge with a small catapult connects the two larger sections. This is likely going to be one of the more popular sets in this line, because only here can you get the dragon and the wizard. You have lots of interesting elements such as the treasure, crystal, and weapons. There are certainly a lot of scenarios which children can act out in this set. Combined with other sets, there are even more possibilities. This has been an instant hit with the kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Very good set. I will not say this is a bad set because of the price because there are a lot of big molds on this set on the Dragon and the rocks. And there are also two exclusive mini figures that come with this set the princess and the wizard and the wizard in my opinion is the best mini figure in the entire castle series. I cannot find anything to dislike about this set. So if your considering getting it I know there are a lot of cooler bigger sets in the 50$ range or whatever the currency is in Canada but this set is very nice and is quite popular and I think it will become a LEGO classic so if you want too you could buy it and then when it's retired sell it on a website for double or triple the price so i would definitely recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but disappointing Overall I find the newest round of castle models interesting but a bit disappointing. This set is a perfect example. This set is the equivalent of 7093 in the last round of castle. They are both the exact same MSRP but for your money, you got a lot more in 7093. The tower in 7093 was far more substantial and actually felt like a stand alone castle. This "tower" seems more like a part of a castle, more like a gate house than a tower. 7093 had more pieces and they were generally more useful. The new stair pieces that Lego is using now can only be used for stairs and only in specific applications (they can't be used for stairs that go straight up and down). I would have rather the designers had forgone the catapult and instead added to the tower. Lastly, I liked the dragon in 7093 better. The darker red and smaller spots looked more natural. He also had a spike on his back instead of a flat black plate and Lego could have done the same thing here by adding just one more piece. This set does have three small redeeming features. The first is the gold brick which is an interesting new piece. The second is the new flame which is much more appropriate to the size of the dragon. The last is that this set includes 5 actual minifigs, as opposed to 7093 which had three minifigs and 2 skeletons (maybe technically they are minifigs but they were unbalanced and barely pose-able). However, again I would point out that there is no horse in this one, and it seems that since it's a dragon knight tower it would make more sense to have two dragon knights. If you are new to the castle series or a hardcore castle collector you're going to buy it anyway. But you may feel like you're getting less for your money than you used to, and you will definitely be correct.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dragons at last!!!!!!! Well, although this is a small set for a lot of money, the dragon makes it up. that thing is probably the lego group's best dragon they've made. also, you get a princess, and a wizard, which is nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It grows on you. When I first saw this set, I was very iffy. I loved the fact they still included the dragon and the evil wizard like the old Castle theme, but the tower seemed tiny, and very unfinished. I wasn't too pleased when I finished building it, because of that very reason. The main tower seemed really unfinished. It is only "half" finished, so the back of the jail is open and the tower doesn't have a backside. It almost begs you to buy a second so you can finish it yourself. That's what I thought at first, but after a few days of fiddling around with it and looking at it every time I enter my room, it really has grown on me. The Dragon is fantastic, I like the new design for the head, and the minifigures are great. I like the new variation of the Dragon Knight and the two Lion Knights that are included are great as well. I think the one soldier with all the armor should have had a horse, but the catapult included makes up for that. The Princess has a hairpiece used in the Friends line to make use for the small crown piece. I think it works and looks great. Better than the overused brown/black braided hairpiece. The Wizard is by far my favorite part of the set. It too had to grow on me but now I really like it. I really like the slimmer black beard that used and the torso and leg printing is AMAZING. Even his eyes have red lining on them; he looks evil- and he should. I love his staff as well. *If you read his character description on the Castle website, it says he uses potions to control his army.* (More on that later.) The tower/bridge section: On ground level there is a rat and a hole in the wall for the rat, I like the minor attention to detail there. Behind the entire tower (still on ground level) is a small table with a goblet and piece of cheese. I am very glad they included this in the set. There is a nice, sturdy staircase that fits the tower well that leads to the jail. The jail is very simple, you can fit the princess in there very nicely. The biggest con here is there is no back wall- but that's a sacrifice used for playability. One more level up, there is a room with a giant red crystal sitting on a stand. I like to imagine that is what allows the Wizard to control the dragon. Why else would it be there? On that same level there are two flags and a shield used for decor; very nice. The top part of the tower is an empty place for the wizard to stand. The bridge is one of my least favorite parts of the set. It looks great and would potentially work great, but there is one problem. There is no way for anyone to get across. If it was extended a little outwards, so there was room for the soldiers to cross it, it would be fantastic. On the bridge there is a small catapult. The dragon's "nest" is my favorite part of the set. There is a lot more to it than it seems. Of course there is the big empty spot to place the dragon, but below that is a treasure chest filled with gold. A few more gold coins wouldn't have hurt to fill it up, but oh well. It doesn't feel too lacking. Now behind all that is the best part- if you pull down the spiderweb, there is an entire laboratory for the wizard to mix the potions I mentioned earlier. There are two jars, one green and one red, a skeleton leg torch, and two keys inside. You can easily fit the wizard inside and I feel Lego went above and beyond including this. The Knight's catapult that is included is also very nice, it looks perfect and works like a charm. The only thing I would like to change about it is if it could have swiveled. Overall, this set is definitely a set I recommend getting if you're collecting the Castle line. It's essential and is a set that really will grow on you. The minifigures are fantastic, the dragon and catapult are great additions are the tower is a decent outpost for the Dragon Knights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dragonz!!!!!! I like this set because of the terrifying Dragon and the cool mountain Lair. It also comes with a Catapult that can fling rocks at the enemy. It comes with five minifigures two lion knights one dragon solider a wizard and also a princess is included in the set. These are reasons why I like this set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Move Over Kingdoms, Castle Is Back! Finally, Lego revives the Castle theme with it's fantasy aspect included. I think most would agree with me when I say Kingdoms was dull, unimaginative, lacked creativity and in general was expensive for what was given. Not to mention some horrible design choices for some of their features. Please see "Prison Tower Rescue" review . Since as long as I can remember collecting Lego Castle (1989), there has always been various factions battling against each other. Aside from Kingdoms each faction always had different helmets, armor and weapons that identified with the respective faction, that was until Kingdoms. Aside from the coloring both armies had exactly the same weapons, armor etc. There was no distinction and you could have easily made the Dragon Knights the good guys. Thankfully Lego listened to people when we said we wanted Castle Fantasy back. This set reminds me of set# 7093 Skeleton Tower accept no hanging cage, skeleton features, and a lot smaller. The dragon is an upgraded version of that set but the jaw has been redone and the front of the mouth accommodates the huge flames instead of the small ones. I like the new design a lot better. You don't get a decorated horse but you do get a siege catapult and additional knight. You still get an evil wizard but this time he's just a dragon wizard not a necromancer. The color schemes chosen are a nice touch. Blue and silver for the good guys and red and black for the bad guys. This theme seems to borrow elements from previous Lego factions. The lion shield of the good guys is the same decor as the Royal Knights in 1995. The Dragon knight design is similar to the Dragon Masters back in 1993 . Yes I have those sets and I remember when they came out. You get a princess, two good knights, a good siege catapult, a evil knight, and an evil wizard for mini figures. A lot of play value and five figures is good for a $50 set. My only grip about this set is the price per piece ratio. It's 376 pieces at $50. I do take into consideration that yes, the dragon has some large molds that are going to make the price more expensive. Even with that being said, there are a lot of really small elements to this set and it would have been nice to have gotten at least 400 pieces. I also would have liked some larger base plates and a bit more bulk to the set. There's not really any base to play on and solid large plate would have made the foundation more firm. It's got a lot of small details but this is supposed to be "Dragon Mountain" and this is more like a small fort. If you missed out on Skeleton Tower this is the next best thing as far as evil forts go. I would definitely pick this over any of the Kingdom sets. If this set had a bit more in structure and pieces it would be worth the $50. For that it gets a 4/5.
