What’s So Great About The Ninjago Epic Dragon Battle from Lego?
With this set kids can build the massive Ultra Dragon (20 inches long) and other creatures, and then stage battles between them. The forces of evil include the Great Devourer, a snake prison and mini action figures of snake generals Acidicus, Skalidor and Chokun. Ranged against them are the Ultra Dragon and 4 more mini action figures: Lloyd ZX, Jay ZX, Sensei Wu and Lord Garmadon.
Weapons include a working flame sphere shooter, Hypnobrai fang blade with blue anti-venom capsule, 4 golden weapons of Spinjitzu and 7 regular weapons.
Kids will have huge fun with this. As the makers say, it’s no ordinary Lego set. After everything is built, there is plenty more play to be had with the set. The figures are modeled on characters from the Ninjago TV show, but whether or not kids watch the show they will have no trouble staging battles between them.
There are 915 pieces to put together, plus two instruction books plus decals. The instructions help with story lines for kids who don’t know the show: e.g. Jay has to free his ninja master Sensei Wu when he’s trapped in the snake venom prison.
The Ultra Dragon is 20 inches long and has plenty of interactive moving parts. You can put different weapons in the hands of the figures and have them move their arms to fight. The prison has doors that open and close to trap people, and a couple of the weapons actually fire missiles.
The manufacturers say age 8-14. We think a lot of boys aged 6 or 7 would like it too, especially if they watch the show, but they might need some help putting it together.
What’s Not To Like?
Not much! This is truly a 5-star toy. Of course it would be even better if it were cheaper … but isn’t that true of everything these days?
Kids will love the Ninjago Epic Dragon Battle playset from Lego and we think it’s excellent value for the price you pay. A truly awesome toy!
