LEGO has just revealed the biggest Ninjago set to date. LEGO Ninjago City Markets, coming to stores on 1st June, is made up of 6,163 pieces. That makes it not only the biggest Ninjago set ever, but amongst the top 10 biggest LEGO sets of all time. And whether or not you’re a Ninjago fan, you’re probably going to want to get your hands on this beauty.
The set has been designed to complement the existing LEGO Ninjago City Gardens – which in turn can be displayed alongside the now-retired Ninjago City and Ninjago City Docks. But it doesn’t matter if you don’t have any of those: Ninjago City Markets is perfect as a standalone set, packing in a huge amount of detail.
What catches our eye right away is the cable car, running between two sides of the set. Underneath is an ornamental bridge crossing a crystal-clear lake, and either side of the set sees various market stores, stacked up on top of each other. There’s a Karaoke club, a sushi bar, a wheelchair-friendly lift, a bakery and an apartment, amongst other fantastic details. Like a flushable toilet. Yeah, we’ve got questions too.
LEGO Ninjago City Markets comes with a whopping 21 minifigures. Along with various workers of the city, there are some familiar faces that fans of the Ninjago Dragons Rising TV series will be familiar with. There’s Blacksmith Kai, Urban Sora, Urban Arin, Detective Zane, Hounddog McBrag, Gayle Gossip, Chamille, Miss Demeanor and Dareth.
Here comes the important part: LEGO Ninjago City Markets will retail for £319.99 when it launches this June. If you’re a LEGO VIP member, you’ll be able to pick it up from 1st June. Otherwise, it’ll be available – exclusive to the LEGO Store – from 4th June.
More information about the set is available from LEGO’s official website.
