The King’s Castle, otherwise known as Castle Lion, was one of the earliest LEGO Castle themed sets and was manufactured between 1984 and 1987, and is the one I closely associate with my childhood. This was a BIG set. An expensive set – as in Birthday and Christmas presents combined (because I am unlucky enough to practically share them). It wasn’t like later castles, that had moulded bases to accommodate dungeons and ghost traps – it was delightfully simple, the only gimmicks being the drawbridge on strings and simple hinges to unfold the set to allow the minifigs massacre each other in the courtyard.
