Lego have officially announced their Exclusive set for 2012, Lego Kingdoms Joust (set 10223) and it looks and feels just as awesome as Medieval Market Village (MMV) from a few years ago.
Designed around the battling forces of the Lion Knights versus the Black Falcons, a favorite with classic Lego Castle fans from the 1980s and 1990s, the set contains 1575 pieces and heaps of detail.
It is interesting to note that if two Kingdoms Joust sets are purchased they can be combined to make one larger castle wall and indeed, many of the images online show the set in that format, so don’t be deceived!
The photo above shows the set as it comes,
not combined into two.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s great that the set gives collectors the opportunity to make a larger structure by purchasing two of the same set, but people also need to be aware of what they are purchasing.
Either way as a fan of MMV I will be setting aside some funds for at least one Kingdoms Joust set.
How about you?

This set is awesome! And the return of the Black Falcons is a great surprise. Can’t wait to see it on the official lego webstore… With the MVM, Mill Village Raid and Blacksmith Attack sets, it is good to see the new direction of the Kingdom theme.
Lego is really going in a great direction with their castle sets.
It all started with the MVM and just gets better.
I guess being one of their oldest themes they know they can put in the effort to design a great set and young and old fans will love it.
