Do you want to soar into the clouds while on a DRAGON?
Feel the wind rushing through your face as your above the cities, ready to conquer the world.
It’s not all fun and games, though.
This is a battle that can lead to your aerial success or defeat.
Can you dodge Cyren’s harpoon shooter? Or pirate flyer’s six-shooting rapid shooter?
Get yourself ready with one of the few dragon-inspired Lego Ninjago sets, the LEGO Ninjago Jay’s Elemental Dragon.
See for yourself if this set is worthy of the adventures it promises.
What’s in the box LEGO Ninjago Jay’s Elemental Dragon 70602?
The perceived most attractive Ninjago toy in this set is undoubtedly Jay’s Elemental Dragon. All of its parts are promised to be posable.
Aside from snapping jaws, it also employs a ball-joint system that promises maximum movement.
Battling this dragon is the pirate flyer. It can house one minifigure, and measures 4″ high, 3″ long and 3″ wide.
Assorted weapons are also included: Cyren’s harpoon hook shooter, pirate sword and dagger, a translucent blue Djinn Blade with ‘trapped Nya’ element, Jay’s 2 golden katanas, and Monkey Wretch’s pirate sword.
Of course, all Lego Ninjago sets wouldn’t be complete without minifigures! This one has a Jay and Cyren minifigures, plus the Monkey Wretch.
Who’s it for?
This is generally for anyone who wants to recreate his favorite scenes from the Ninjago shows.
To some extent, it’s advisable to follow the age recommendation on the box (8 to 14).
Because it contains small parts, it’s advisable to keep this Lego Ninjago set away from children below three.
Jay’s Elemental Dragon has wings that are both simple and awesome. They’re not overdone, and are greatly-designed.
- There are some neat items suitable for collectors
Lego Ninjago sets are always trying to be unique, and in some sense, they succeeded with this one. There are a few parts that you can only find in this particular set, making this a must-have for collectors.
- It doesn’t deliver on its promise
On paper, the dragon really is awesome. However, the only good thing about it is the wings. The dragon’s hardly posable. Also, it’s hard making the missile launcher go the way you want it to.
- Overall, it’s a boring set
Aside from a few particular parts, there’s nothing unique about this set. Just because Lego Ninjago sets are for kids, it doesn’t mean that they should always just go for big.
If you want a dragon on the same price range, nothing can beat LEGO Ninjago 70593 The Green NRG Dragon Building Kit.
Its dragon is so great, it overshadows everything else.
Another dragon-inspired option is the LEGO Ninjago Dragon’s Forge 70627 Building Kit. It even features two minifigure seats and a shooting crossbow.
Unfortunately, it’s better for display than for actual playing.
If you’re a collector, go ahead and get yourself the LEGO Ninjago Jay’s Elemental Dragon.
For everyone else, don’t. There are more worthy Lego Ninjago sets out there.
This Ninjago set is bland. It isn’t even great for action-packed battles it’s supposed to be for.
