Here’s what the official LEGO product description says:
This new interpretation of the former classic LEGO Castle theme combines new building techniques, colours and fresh decorations with fan-favourite elements. The entire set opens up to show both the inside and outside of the castle. Plus, there is loads to discover such as the opening drawbridge, dungeon trap door, movable walls, secret passages and more! In addition, the set comes with over 20 minifigures representing both soldiers, forest people and knights. Plus horses, cows and even a castle cat!The LEGO Group
The set was voted on by fans – there was a choice of classic themes to bring back for a one-off special 90th anniversary set, which whittled the choice down to Space, Castle, Pirates or BIONICLE. Castle won the final vote and the result is 10305 Lion Knights’ Castle, which will launch on August 3 at LEGO.com.
