As if dragons aren’t scary enough alive, now you’d have to face one as a ghost.

Are you worthy of facing the Ghost Dragon? Not until you have the appropriate Lego Ninjago sets, you aren’t!

The LEGO Ninjago 70735 Ronin R.E.X. Ninja Building Kit is the only way for the Ghost Ninja to taste the wrath of your power.

They may be ghosts, but you can unleash hell to the worldly and otherworldly forces that oppose you.

With the Ronin’s R.E.X. Lego Ninjago toy, you can soar to initiate an aerial battle. Then, you can see your enemies fall to their doom.

What’s in the box LEGO Ninjago 70735 Ronin R.E.X. Ninja Building Kit?

Ronin’s R.E.X. airship measures 6″ high, 13″ long and 8″ wide. Only in a few Lego Ninjago sets would you find this amount of detail.

It features an opening cockpit where you can place Ronin to take over the controls.

Aside from that, the R.E.X. also comes with a rip cord, unleashing the Arijtzu flyer and Kai to the enemmies. This will leave Scythe Master Ghoultar at Kai’s mercy.

As if the two adjustable engines aren’t enough, it’s also detailed with storage compartments and a cup element.

Making the R.E.X. even more impressive are the Aeroblade with holder, Ninja golden blade, and cargo bay with weapons storage.

A Skreemer which can be attached to minifigures is also included. This features sai and chicken drumstick elements.

The Ghost Dragon may not be the highlight of this set, but it can stand on its own. You know, literally and figuratively. You can easily pose its head, wings, and tail!

Like most Lego Ninjago sets, this wouldn’t be complete without the minifigures. Here, you’ll get four: Kai, Ronin, Scythe Master Ghoultar and Ghost Ninja Attila.

Lots of weapon elements are in included as well like Kai’s Aeroblade, Ronin’s 2 stud shooters, Attila’s Ghost Katana, the Sword of Sanctuary, and many more!

Who’s it for?

Anyone who likes the combination of features, details, and pure AWESOMENESS would love this. If you simply think that Lego Ninjago sets are to die for, then great! Get yourself one of these.

Pros

  • Ronin’s R.E.X. is actually made for “aerial” play

Because it has a handle, playing with it is 100% fun time. This simple feature allows for it to be lifted for long periods of time.

  • Awesome features in an awesome package

This Lego Ninjago set is packed with features that make it great both for play and display.

Con

  • Some little parts fall off

This may come as a minor concern, but it can actually be dangerous is it’s being played by someone under three.

Alternative Products

Another Lego set that has aerial battle as the main star is the LEGO Ninjago Raid Zeppelin 70603. The airship is entirely different, so it adds variety to the collection.

If you’re not into the first one, check out LEGO Ninjago Misfortune’s Keep 70605. The Misfortune’s Keep looks more like a real flying machine than anything else the Lego Ninjago franchise offers.

The Ver-Brick

Lego Ninjago sets are meant for kids, but this one isn’t for the very young.

As long as it isn’t for a toddler, the LEGO Ninjago 70735 Ronin R.E.X. Ninja Building Kit can be worth the try.
