Review: Exploring 70620 Ninjago City

70620 Ninjago City Review Title Shot Square Small

It feels like everybody was caught by surprise when LEGO announced the Ninjago City set. This set was bigger, more detailed and generally just more than anybody was expecting for a Ninjago Movie set - 4867 pieces and 16 minifigures.

LEGO have attempted to collate the entire Ninjago City into a single set. Did they succeed? I will be finding out by looking not just at the build itself but also exploring some of the real world influences and the world-building within the set itself.

This is a huge set so this exploration is broken down in to various sections. I have tried not to be too long-winded with so much get through. For each section I will examine; the minifigures; the style, influences, signage and imagery of the set; and the build itself, such as innovative parts usage.

Level 1 – The Old World

Style

The old world is blatantly and unapologetically inspired by iconic waterfront cities such as Hong Kong, Singapore and various Japanese cities. As you navigate around this layer of the set you find all of the things you expect from a great waterfront city. There’s wide walkways right on the waters edge and a bridge that fishing boats pass under.

There is a market stall selling freshly caught fish and crabs, styled in a way that you can picture the real world version in your mind.

Toys R Us are clearing out some old stock and from today (October 5th) through until Sunday October 8th they are reducing the clearance prices by a further 25%.

There are some good prices on a bit of a random mix of sets but there may just be something that you are interested in.

On Sale: 20% Off At Hobby Warehouse eBay Store

eBay 200

eBay are having another sale with fairly narrow parameters, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find some LEGO on sale.

The specific offer is 20% off at selected sellers when you click and collect. To take advantage of the offer you will need to use the code PICK20UP. I have heard mixed reports about whether you actually need to select the click & collect option or not.

Having a look through the offer the only LEGO seller seems to be Hobby Warehouse. They have a fairly extensive range but be aware that some items are priced above RRP.

View their LEGO range here.

This offer runs until 23.59 (AEDT) on October 9th 2017.

Edit: I originally had the code wrong.
