“This set gives you the ability to build 25 the different modules shown in the pictures above. Below is a description of the 5 main categories.

Room / Wall Modules – Used to build walls, mazes of rooms, an enclosed fortress or tall towers. They can be stacked top to bottom or connected side by side, in a line or even a cluster using the included Lego Technic pins. You can also connect them off set by half a module to make a staggered wall, series of terraces or a pyramid.

  • Lower Gate Module – Usually the center piece of a castle or outpost with a set of double doors centered in the middle of a double 8×16 module. It is also outfitted to connect to an upper gate module with a working drawbridge and portcullis. The upper gate module is not included in this set.
  • Lower Room Modules – Typically used to form the lower level of a castle. They have decorative support buttress on the front wall with large open arches in the back.
  • Upper Room Modules – Have connections for the other modules on all six sides. This allows you to build out your castle in 3 dimensions instead of being limited to a wall or tower The main difference between the 5 configurations is the count and location of the walls or open sides.

Balcony Modules – Clip into the side of a room or bridge module using two Lego technic pins to create space for additional room modules or more battlements. There are 2 variations included in the set, both a half (4×8) and a whole (8×8) balcony module. Balconies can extend the area of your castle beyond the outside wall as if hanging in the air. Placing 2 balconies end to end can create an open archway two modules across.

  • One Piece Curved Balconies – A hybrid of a balcony and battlement module that are a single piece. They clip into the set of Lego Technic pin holes on a room or bridge module creating a small semi-circular place for minifigs, The railing version is perfect for the top level of tower.

Battlement Modules – Are placed on top of the room, bridge or balcony modules to provide a large stable play surface. There are 6 different 4×8 or half battlement modules that are included with the set.

Bridge Modules – Connect to rooms, balconies and other bridges to create more play space, battlements or open archways between rooms. You can place room or battlement modules on top of a bridge. This allows you to connect towers by sky bridges or create floor space between modules.  Both the whole and half bridges are included in the set.

Topper Modules – are placed on top of any room, bridge or balcony to create a decorative top to the highest level of a wall or tower. This set comes with a decorative height extender that is half the height of a room module and 2 different 8×8 battlement modules that can be used for a watch tower. There is also a roof module to dress up your tallest tower, which is also be available in pink or purple to appeal to female builders, quickly converting the king’s castle into one fit for a princess.

Minifigs and Decorative Pieces – A King, Queen, 5 soldiers and a horse are included. Plus some plants, torches and banners to dress up your castle and cover the Lego Technic pin holes that were not used to connect to other modules. Use the included ½ Technic pins.

Each module was carefully designed to be tough enough to be picked up and moved to its new spot without breaking or pulling bricks off of the rest of the castle.  This modular castle system has gone through countless hours of kid play testing and many redesigns for good playability and durability. Please ask Lego to make this set by clicking the blue Support button on the right side of the screen and follow the instructions. You can find more pics of other sample castles here.”
