I just happen to chance upon a mini documentary about how folks in period time deal with human wastes and not going to lie, it wasn’t a pretty sight. Now I am not sure I should be celebrating medieval times with the LEGO Ideas 21325 Medieval Blacksmith.
But if you dig the idea of medieval time, then this is the set for you. The 2,164 pieces set, which is based on LEGO Ideas member Clemens Fiedler’s submission, lets you build a 3-story medieval-style building, complete with kitchen, bedroom and of course, a fully equipped workshop.
Horrifying images of period time people handling of human wastes aside, I won’t deny the LEGO Ideas 21325 Medieval Blacksmith is refreshing break from the usual sets we have seen so far. By “usual sets” we do mean original theme and not movie franchises.
Features include a removable roof, top 2 levels lift off for easy viewing and play, glowing forge with a LEGO light brick, a garden with buildable models of an apple tree and a well, and four minifigures to bring the scene to life.
The 4 minifigures include a blacksmith, archer and 2 Black Falcon Knights with 4 swords, 3 shields and a halberd. There is also a posable horse figure too, along with a buildable cart, dog and frog figures.
The LEGO Ideas 21325 Medieval Blacksmith ain’t for kids, though. It is designed with Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOL) in mind. If you are down, you can pick up the set from LEGO.com for US$149.99 as we speak.
