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

      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…

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

  3. Don Reply

    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.

    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.
