6062 Battering Ram, Year: 1987, Elements: 233, Figs: 6, list Price: $19.95 (USD) those were the days... Lugnet score (out of 100): 87, Review #: 6  The Thoughts of the outrageous Norro: ...in under a word per brick... This is one of the best sets ever made (makes my top 10 anyway). It had everything from an affordable price to more playability than a Jack Stone set; and best of all it was modular! If you wanted to build big you could buy 100 of these and be left with no useless parts and a lot of material. This was one of the first sets I retrieved from the age before I began collecting Lego and I was instantly stunned by the quality gap... 'stunned' might not be a strong enough word you really have to build it. The only small drawback to this set is the lack of a horse to push/pull the siege engine. The highest praise I can give this set is that its most maligned element, the siege engine, is itself a brilliant build, see for yourself Guest Minifig Comments: Hey all, vicious battle this-- smiling heads everywhere! I'm bringing up the rear on the siege engine (no sense being overly heroic). I'm on it, so not required to push, but not leading the way over the wall either... perfect eh? The best detail of our attack is how the ram perfectly opens the small, rather conveniently located door in the wall, that's how I'll be going in ; )  Resources: Comments from Lugnet members, Instructions courtesy of peeron, inventory courtesy of peeron Comments Instructions Inventory Detail
