LEGO Thursday: King Leo's Castle
The good thing about being an adult fan of LEGO (AFOL) is that you get people's leftovers when they move on from the hobby. It's a shame, why would anyone move on? But move on they do, and it's up to the AFOL to actively seek out signs of LEGO abandonment and take custody of these wayward sets before they end up in a garage sale!
I'm fortunate enough to have had a lot of friends and family pass along LEGO to me. Mainly this is because they know that A) I enjoy it, obviously, and B) they know it will go to a good home and not be cannibalized or turned for a quick profit online.
It seems I mentioned Rucht just the other week during the Thursday feature, and I'm doing so again today. The above set, #6908-1 King Leo's Castle, was released in 2001 and was the 'big set' of the Castle line that series. Thanks to Rucht, he passed it on to me and it's been in good hands since. Judging from the Warmachine books in the background, this has been some time ago!
