Great news for LEGO VIP members: the much sought-after LEGO 10305 Lion Knights’ Castle is available from today. Bad news for your wallets though: you’ll need to sink £344.99 to bring it home.
But for those of us who are brave enough to stump up the cash, this is one heck of a LEGO set. Fans have been waiting a long time for a castle, and this one definitely delivers.
Here are the key facts:
- RRP £344.99/$399.99
- 22 minifigures
- 4,514 pieces
- 38cm x 44cm x 33cm
Needless to say, then, this is huge. And 22 minifigures puts it alongside the most populous of LEGO releases. There’s everything from knights, merchants, bards and ladies, and even a wizard. They aren’t along, either: a wealth of animals including a knight’s horse to keep the minifigs company.
The building itself is incredible, packing in a lot of detail. Enter through the grand entrance complete with drawbridge and portcullis, and you’ll find hidden passages, dungeons, living quarters, a water mill and more. There are a couple of ways to display the Lion Knights’ Castle, too, thanks to a hinge that opens and closes it. Either way, you’re going to need a lot of space to show it off.
If you’re not a VIP member, LEGO 10305 Lion Knights’ Castle will be available to the general public on Monday 8th August. But if you’re not a VIP member, it’s free to join. It’s exclusive to LEGO, so you won’t be able to grab this from anywhere but the LEGO website and physical LEGO stores.
