WATCH: LEGO 10305 Lion Knights’ Castle’s ‘impossible’ new feature

Did you know? The newly-revealed LEGO ICONS 10305 Lion Knights’ Castle includes what was once deemed to be an ‘impossible’ feature.

Launching next month to celebrate the LEGO Group’s 90th anniversary, the 4,514-piece homage to the Castle theme of old (ye olde Castle theme, let’s say) is the biggest medieval set to date, incorporating all kinds of references to ‘80s and ‘90s models, minifigures and Castle factions. But while it’s packed with nostalgia, it’s also surprisingly forward-thinking.

That’s through one feature in particular, which has never been attempted before in a LEGO Castle set – and which the design team initially thought would be ‘impossible’ to achieve even here (as Milan Madge explained to Brickset), despite the enormous budget allocated to 10305 Lion Knights’ Castle. They cracked it eventually, though, and it’s front and centre in the final model.

We’ll stop teasing what exactly that feature is and just direct you to our latest YouTube short below, which reveals all. If this is the kind of content you’re into, head over to our YouTube channel when you’ve finished watching and hit subscribe.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
