7 new LEGO Monkie Kid sets revealed for Spring 2021 [News]

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.

Art imitates marketing with this stellar Monkie Kid logo

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.

A King who’s not Kidding

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.

If you’re curious as to how this creation came about, Red has an Instragram post that goes into the details of the build process. And when you’re done there, you can check out the other builds of theirs that we’ve featured in the past.
