Get your Ash minifigure ready for 2007, quick!
Even with all the goodies I posted below, the new Castle theme this year is probably what I'm most amped about. I don't know what they're calling it, but it's easy to see that "Army of Darkness" would be a perfect choice. Allow me to enumerate some coolness points:
Cool skull faces! As seen above.
Morning Stars! New weapons are always welcome.
Groovy new swords! See below for why they're so groovy.
Skeletons with working arms! This is HUGE. Lego skeletons are great but they've always had loose, floppy arms.
Check that skeleton who's standing directly beneath the red dragon. His scythe is made with one of those new swords, which have a handy clip on the bottom of the handle. You can see it used again on the side of the box.
Here's your best look at one of the ghost horses.
And this set's a sure purchase. Three horses and lots of other good stuff, and judging by the size it's probably a twenty dollar set.
A couple more sets to see here. There may be more on the way, which I say because the spread above features elements I haven't spotted in the set pix yet, like those red-eyed skulls and a black skeleton horse. Could be we're seeing some prototype images on these boxes and the poster spread is more current.
Either way, coooooooool.
