Welcome, friend, to
a world of chivalry, fantasy and legend. The world of the outlaw
Robin Hood. Do you like castles and forests? Outlaws and knights?
Treasures and traps? If the answer is YES, don't hesitate. Support!
Its 1294, in
Sherwood forest. The Sheriff of Nottingham is tired of this
mysterious band of outlaws, and their leader, Robin Hood. As much as
the Sheriff tries to tax the poor, the money is always stolen back.
As the Sheriff's knights, and Robin's Merry Men clash, it is up to YOU to decide what happens.
This set comes with
two models – the Sheriffs castle, and the Outlaws hideout – and
seven minifigures to play in the scenes. Built in a modular style the
two models open up, not only to allow play inside, but to extend the
scenes. The castle has five main rooms: a throne room, a banquet
hall, an armoury, a dungeon and a treasury. The forest hideout has
four sections: a piece of forest and stream bordering the road, the
camp-fire, the storage cave behind a waterfall and a lookout post.
This model is made
from 2,307 pieces (I built a digital model on LDD to check).
There are tonnes of
fun functions and traps throughout both models. Here's a list of
In the forest
A net trap (released at the press of a button)
A falling branch (activated by pulling a twig)
A twisting tree to hide and uncover the path to the hideout
In the castle:
A sliding throne to reveal hidden treasure
A trapdoor into the dungeon
A collapsible section of wall
An unlocking door
Further detail of these functions can
be seen in the video above!!
I've always been fascinated and
captivated by the Robin Hood legend, and now, after a whole year of hard work, have finally brought it
to life in LEGO bricks. I really think that Robin Hood would make a
wonderful LEGO set. Its a universal adventure theme, and brings in
castles as a sideline, which will excite a huge number of fans. That
said, this model wasn't at all made to continue the LEGO Castle theme, but
as a stand alone set – as LEGO Ideas sets are meant to be. However, fans will still be greatly pleased to have a model with a castle in.
In the building of this model, I have
focused a lot on making this a great set for all ages. It is
detailed, a challenging build, and looks amazing. But on top of this
I have put great effort into making this a fun model for kids. There
is loads of functions that would make it great to play with, and I
have made the scenes accessible, for greater enjoyment.
Thank you so much for your support!
