This is my first review, so c/c and your thoughts are appreciated.
I recently purchased Blacksmith Attack at the Lego store; it was the first place I'd been that had it available. It retails for $9.99 US, and I feel that it is very worth the smallish price; at the 'impulse' set price, it offers a lot of goodies and a nifty little forge that will be a great addition to any castle layout.
The box, and most of the set, together:
The Dragon Knight has a typical 'butter knife' sword, and it is a dark gray/black color. He also has a shield with a fairly simple dragon motif. The blacksmith's accessories are a hammer and a gold crystal (I'm not sure why). There is also a really cool bucket, as well as a chicken.
In addition to the forge, there is a weapons/armor rack:
The weapons are a softer ABS plastic, and are really cool items, in my opinion. There are two small daggers also included which are not on this rack; one is placed in the anvil:

The forge's hammer goes up and down to hammer the dagger, by way of the waterwheel, you can see this here
The only negative thing about this set is that the minifigs are of a lower quality. They are the same plastic found in the Collectible Minifigs series and seem looser, the leg joints seem especially unsteady. I would definitely purchase this set anyway, because the accessories and toys you get are worth it.
All in all, a good set to pick up for its chicken, fire pieces, and assortment of weapons. My favorite thing is the old-style hood on the blacksmith; this is an affordable way to get one without buying the Medieval Marketplace [I'm unsure what other sets the hoods come in...].

Ease of Construction: 5/5
Other Notes: Lots of little weapons and things. Chicken and a knight. 'Working' mechanical forge.
