The two-headed Fusion Dragon is completely posable, with two seats for mini figures and a crossbow to shoot at the Buffmillion mech. There are six figures in all.
For Ninjago fans the Master Falls set is a must because of its epic scope and ability to be used in endless play scenarios. Kids can explore the “jungle” with Master Wu and defend against hidden enemies, using the cage to lock up Garmadon or any other evil doer who comes their way.
Kids will get a kick out of having the figures racing across the bridge to find the hidden skeleton and other unique features. This set has 3 figures, a cage that opens, and a fun hidden cave to put the skelton or even hide one of the good guys. And the realistic leaf elements will make kids think they are right back in the movie.
You can’t have Lego Ninjago sets without Garmadon’s lair, which is massive in both size and presence. Kids will get lost in this set, which features so much to do and see, from >the weapon’s rack in the throne room to the fire and water elements that sparkle and shine.

Everyone loves a good chase scene and now your kids can reenact the one from the movies with this awesome kit.

Kids can have the figures, like Nya, use the cute Lego money to buy food, then have them run off quick when Garmadon shows up! There are 5 figures in all, including Nya, Lord Garmadon and the Shark Guy, ad this set compliments all the others.
A favorite villain from the Ninjago movie, the Piranha Mech will be hard for Llyod and the others to defeat; but boy will kids have fun trying. The Piranha Mech has working weapons, so it can be flown all over, shooting down the other figures with the 2 flick missiles.
