This might not be something entirely new, but I don’t want to miss out on something this nice. Earlier this May, we saw the first wave of LEGO Monkie Kid sets – LEGO’s new action-packed theme inspired by the classic Chinese saga Journey to the West. And after its initial offering, LEGO has added more sets expanding the theme’s storyline and adventure. It also gives us a handful of new and interesting minifigures such as the Horn Demons and the Spider Queen. I simply love the new headgear design and accessories on these characters.
Other than these regular sets, LEGO has unveiled other similarly inspired sets to add to your LEGO Monkie Kid collection. As it turns out, the theme will also be getting the BrickHeadz treatment, particularly with the arrival of the LEGO BrickHeadz Monkey King (40381) in August. And to all polybag collectors out there, a second polybag offering has also arrived complementing its predecessor. Coming in at 24 pieces, a LEGO Monkie Kid Build Your Own Monkey King (40474) polybag features a brick-shifting Monkey King that you can build in a myriad of ways. What could probably be the selling point of this polybag is the unique 1×2 brick printed with the Monkey King’s eyes, and the golden staff handles that come with other LEGO Monkie Kid sets. The polybag has been first spotted in the LEGO Store in Billund, so we hope it will arrive in local LEGO stores soon. Just drop a comment below if you spotted this poly in any of our local LEGO brand stores.
