The LEGO Ninjago Movie Ninjago City Docks (70657) Spotted at LEGOLAND Billund

It seems that it’s not just third-party retailers like Radio Kontrol have listed the Ninjago City Docks (70657), but also LEGOLAND Billund have also put them on display in their store shelves ahead of the set’s worldwide release. This is a good indication, suggesting that we might have an official press release and clear, crisp images anytime soon. The set was first announced at the Nuremberg Toy Fair last January, with a tag price of 299.99 Euros. It comes as a sort of an expansion set for the LEGO Ninjago City (70620), though it may well pass for a standalone set.

Italian retailer site Radio Kontrol managed to list a box art image of the Ninjago City Docks (70657) giving us our very first clear image of the sizeable set.  But this time, thanks to Zusammengebaut, we now have a closer look at the set’s box art which gives us a better view of its modular functions plus the minifigures included with it. The following images were captured at LEGOLAND Billund, and were shared by one of the site’s followers.

As we can see from the back of the set’s box, the LEGO Ninjago City Docks (70657) comes with six interchangeable modules which you can mix and match in many ways. What I find particularly interesting is the way the base of the set is made, which seems to rest on a sort of translucent blue baseplate which is very, very cool. It’s kind of difficult to tell at this point, which makes me even more excited to see the set’s official images. The level of detail on this set is at par with the LEGO Ninjago City (70620), with the dockyards consisting of a harbor equipped with a working crane, 3 floors that represents both the old and the new in the world of LEGO Ninjago. I can just imagine how humungous these combined sets will be if they are joined together as the box art suggests.

The Ninjago City Docks comes with a huge amount of minifigs – 13 to be exact: Lloyd in his green ninja suit, Cole in his casual wear, Garmadon, Private Puffer, Runje, Chan Kong-Sang, Runme, Runde, Dareth, Lil’ Nelson, Mystake, Chad and Betsy with a baby figure. The minifigs themselves does not disappoint, particularly the way that fish rack was made and ingeniously hitched on Runje’s shoulders. Each minifigure comes with its own set of accessories, even Lil’ Nelson’s rare arm cast piece.

I’m really all hyped to see the official images and see the many ways in which you can build the Ninjago City Docks together with its larger counterpart. So what do you think brick fans? Drop a comment below if you’re also looking forward to having this set. Thanks once again to Zusammengebaut for sharing these images.

  1. What gives you in any way the clue that the different parts are interchangeable?! Yes you can take it apart to get access to the different rooms. But it’s all different shapes and sizes…
    Concerning the base i think they went with black/DBG baseplate and a layer of black plates like with the city once again. This way you won’t have a colour/height difference in the water.

    1. If you zoom in on the back of the box picture you can (though just barely) see the black tile with dbg baseplate layers underneath the ‘water’.

  2. Ok, two things: One, when did Dareth get promoted? And two, is Lil’ Nelson ever going to stop getting hurt? Wait a minute, if Octan created the voting machines, and Dareth has a black Wu Cru gi, and Lil’ Nelsol has a white Wu Cru gi, and a broken arm, and Homer Simpson once lost his pants to an Octan Micro Manager, and Patrick Star is really a Doctor Professor….. DARETH!!!!! YOUR THE ONE WHO BROKE LIL’ NELSON’S ARM!!! AND I’LL BET YOU BROKE HIS LEGS TOO, BACK IN SEASON SIX!!!!!!! DARETH!!!!! YOU ARE SOOOO GETTING REPORTED TO NICK BRICK, AND YOU WILL SO BE GOING TO ALBATROSS PRISON, AND GETTING BOTH LAUGHY’S AND GRAND SENSEI DARETH’S MOJO DOJO SHUT DOWN, FOR GOOD, BECAUSE OF CHILD ENDANGERMENT!!!!! Anyways, cool set, right up there with the NEW Lego Creator Roller Coaster!!!!! Come to think of it, if this retails for arround $300, and the Roller Coaster retails at $300, and the Downtown Diner, (which I’m sure child threat Dareth would love), costs $180, plus about $20 going into a motor and battery box for the Roller Coaster, plus batteries for said battery box included in that $20…… Dang, my Christmas list just struck $800, easy!!!!! SOMEBODY SAVE MY WALLET!!!!! And get Batman some pants…… Rockatoa, a wishing I hadn’t seen Batman without his pants Brickticks out!
