The Monkie Kid theme has another wave of sets that, like the previous wave, are full of colorful vehicles and cartoonish accessories like jet-packs with huge engines. And this time, there’s a brand new batch of baddies, based on cyber-spiders. One of the biggest sets in this wave has a little bit of everything, from fold-out playsets for both sides, mecha-spiders, a massive quad-copter for Sandy, and a jet-powered cat carrier for Mo the cat. We’ve got a lot to cover, so let’s jump right in. 80023 Monkie Kid’s Team Dronecopter comes with 1462 pieces and is available now for US $149.99 | CAN $199.99 | UK £119.99
The LEGO Group sent The Brothers Brick an early copy of this set for review. Providing TBB with products for review guarantees neither coverage nor positive reviews.
LEGO’s new Monkie Kid theme debuted last year and seems to be going full steam ahead. The initial Spring 2020 wave included 8 sets, while last Fall we got another 4. Now thanks to Chinese retailer Momo, we’re getting a first look at 7 brand new sets releasing March 1. The sets range in size from the 203-piece Monkie Kid’s Cloud Bike, all the way up to The Legendary Flower Fruit Mountain, a massive 1,949-piece fortress. There’s no word on the exact prices for the sets yet–although the Chinese retailer has local prices listed, they don’t bear much reflection on what prices we can expect elsewhere.
Be sure to check out these other upcoming LEGO sets, too:
Four new sets were announced today by LEGO at the 3rd China International Import Exhibition. Two of the new sets belong to the Chinese New Year theme, another one is the new Monkie Kid product, while the last one is a DUPLO set. According to the press release, all the new products were inspired by and celebrate classic Chinese culture and legends. Prices, piece count, and availability are yet to be announced.
80107 Spring Lantern Festival
80107 Spring Lantern Festival recreates the magical atmosphere of the festival which marks the end of the lunar new year celebrations. It features a brick-built Chinese garden with moon gates, pavilion, pond and bridge, a special ox lantern illuminated by a LEGO light brick as well as other must-have items during the festival like a rabbit lantern and a Tang Yuan rice ball.
I am a HUGE fan of the new Monkie Kid LEGO theme, with its bright colors and a marvelous mix of traditional and sci-fi elements. It looks like I’m not the only fan, based on this free-standing Monkie Kid logo by Noel Mallet which perfectly re-creates the vertical logo on the side of the packaging, and includes both a large version of the Monkey King’s staff and a place for the Monkie Kid Minifig… all built onto a black and red base. Check out our Monkie Kid archives for more.

It was only two months ago that LEGO revealed the initial wave of eight Monkie Kid sets. The sets are inspired by a new animated TV show based on the Monkey King legend from the Chinese novel Journey to the West.
LEGO recently introduced the Monkey Kid theme, bringing the legend of Sun Wukong, the Monkey King, to a wider audience. Builder Red has created a truly regal version of Sun Wukong that’s full of character and clever building. The gold accents in the crown are nice, and the cloth pants and dark blue armor are snazzy. But the real star of the show is those toes. How cute are they? Okay, maybe the really impressive thing is that cocky expression. A tilted bit of shoulder armor adds just the right touch of grumpiness to complement those deep-set eyes.
Summer 2020 has arrived, and LEGO has launched 130 new sets and items available today. Fans of Technic, Creator 3-in-1, City, Friends, Architecture, Hidden Side and more have a lot to choose from.
