    It might be too early but do we know either way yet if this set will come to any retail?

  2. Fire moth says:

    Rrp $500 for 3100 pieces makes me sad.

    • Don says:

      Yeah, the pricing is out of whack! Ninjago City Docks (also Legos own product line, so no license fees) have 3553 parts and a RRP of AU$350. Something is VERY wrong with the pricing on this set…

  3. Anon Coward says:

    It has DC minifigs in there, not that I’m defending that outrageous price mind you!

  4. Don says:

    True, I forgot about the DC minifigs. The set looks insanely awesome in the 2 photos of it sitting on the table. I hope it’ll make its way into brick and mortar stores so that we have the opportunity to get it at 20% off.

  5. Dave says:

    It also looks like a lot more large specialised pieces than a typical expert/ninjago large set, so that could be a factor. Mind you, it’s rated 16+ rather than 12+ in the case of Ninjago Docks, so I’d like to compare the two build experiences.

  6. brocycler says:

    horrible pricing on this set it really isnt on the same level as ninjago city which is priced similar
