Following fast on the heels of our hands-on review of 70620 Ninjago City, the third-largest LEGO set of all time is now available to order from the LEGO Shop online. The set includes 4,867 pieces and 19 minifigures (by our count), and retails for $299.99 in the United States.
The set will be available more broadly starting on September 1st, but is currently available only to LEGO VIP Program members. Of course, you can just sign up for a VIP membership for free, so that means the set is available to everyone now, assuming you’re ready and able to cough up the three hundred bucks for it. We think it’s totally worth it.
70620 Ninjago City joins 10258 London Bus, LEGO Boost, and the rest of the LEGO Ninjago Movie sets released on August 1st.
With only two months left until The LEGO Ninjago Movie, we’re finally getting to review the movie tie-in sets. We got an exclusive sneak peek at Toy Fair in February, but LEGO had banned photography at the time, so we had to wait until June to even show the first pictures. Now, we’re able kick things off big with a review of 70617 Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate Weapon. This set is due for release August 1, 2017 and has 1,403 pieces. It will retail for $99.99 USD.
LEGO has revealed more photos of sets for their upcoming The LEGO Ninjago Movie. One set is entirely new, and while we had a preview of the others last week with the box images, now we get a full look at all the details. These also come hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement of 70620 NINJAGO City, which is one of the largest sets in LEGO’s history. The Brothers Brick got a preview of many of these sets at New York Toy Fair earlier this year (though we weren’t permitted to take pictures), and we’ve been eagerly waiting to share more information.
These sets will be available August 7, 2017.
70618 Destiny’s Bounty (2,295 Pieces; USD $159.99)
Construct Wu’s huge training base in this highly detailed set featuring 3 modular levels and a double-headed dragon, wind-up-and-release anchors, training dojo, bathroom and Wu’s bedroom in the hull – not to mention many hidden secrets.
While LEGO Ninjago fans are still busy eyeing the freshly published pictures of the upcoming sets meticulously planning expenses for the rest of the year, it’s hard to imagine a better moment for one of the hugest announcements of the year: jaw-dropping 70620 NINJGAGO City. This newly revealed set contains 4,867 pieces; while price isn’t confirmed, we believe it will retail for somewhere near USD $299. The set contains 16 minifigures, including some of your favorite ninjas along with citizens of NINJAGO city. No release date is available yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know!
LEGO has now confirmed the set will retail for $299 in the USA, and £259.99 in the UK, and will be available beginning September 1. Early access to VIP members is likely mid-August.
It’s more than 3 months till the premiere of The Lego Ninjago Movie, but the we’ve already begun to get a glimpse of the sets. Today, the official product images of the boxes are avaliable online, so we can have a clear view of what we’ll be hauling this fall. It’s hard to hide the excitement, as judging by the first look the new sets have lots of Exo-Force and Orient Expedition vibes, themes many fans miss. The rumor has it at least three more sets are to be released this Fall, so stay tuned for more news during the following weeks.
