To celebrate its 90th anniversary, LEGO is returning to its roots in a big way with the LEGO Icons 10305 Lion Knights Castle. Created as an ode to the original 1984 castle, the 2022 version will come with 4514 pieces, 22 minifigures and lots of fun features and secrets like a working drawbridge and portcullis, hidden passageways, movable walls, dungeon escape routes, armory, and a spinning waterwheel. This massive dose of LEGO nostalgia promises to be one of the most popular sets for ages, and your next chance to own it is right now.
The LEGO Icons 10305 Lion Knights Castle was available exclusively to LEGO VIP members on August 3 and quickly sold out. The set returned on August 8 with open availability. As of this writing, the Lion Knights Castle set is still available to order here at the LEGO Store for $399.99. Chances are it won’t last long.
While you’re at it, you might want to check out the huge number of LEGO sets that were released on August 1st. That includes the 10497 Galaxy Explorer ($99.99) set, which joins the Lion Knights’ Castle as a returning release for LEGO’s celebration of 90 years of play. Below are additional details about the Knights Castle set.

The new castle set is one of those LEGO releases that can really make you feel like a kid again. There are so many fun details here. For example, the waterwheel is attached to a windmill, there’s a dungeon trapdoor you can engage when the forest people invade (and a secret passage you can use to help them escape), minifigures which include a queen, knights, archers, a wizard and the aforementioned forest peoples, towers, turrets, a banquet hall, and more. You can even close the set to form a fully enclosed castle.
Licensed sets from Star Wars and Marvel are great, but this castle set is LEGO at its best. Again, head over to LEGO to pick up yours. When it runs out, you can pick it up here on eBay if you can’t wait for a restock.
