Even as an adult I've always favored the smaller to medium sized sets and this Crossbow Attack was right up my alley. 3 minifigures, a skeleton horse and firing crossbow wagon? Yes please!
Minifigures are a big draw of any LEGO set and these two knights are worthy additions to any castle / medieval collection. The figure on the right I'm familiar with, but the one of the left has a helmet that I've never seen before.
The little crossbow cart is small, but still packs a punch. There are a set of handles on the rear for one of the minifigures to hold and "push" the cart. Using a red rubber band and tension, you can really launch an "arrow". The silver crossbows on each side of the cart are removeable and can be wielded by a minifigure.
If the two previous minifigures weren't enough to sell the set, I'm sure this skeleton minifigure had people buying this set in bulk. Arm the skeleton with a mean looking sword and shield and you've got yourself a great army builder type figure.
I love how the skeleton comes packaged with his noble steed! The legs are in a fixed position, but it still looks fantastic with the skeleton in the saddle.
This is a fun little set and is recommended to anyone that enjoys the castle theme. It's a plus that just about everything in the set could be used to build your army of knights or skeleton warriors!
