Earlier last month, we caught a glimpse of things to come with LEGO’s action-packed, Monkie Kid-themed sets. The Legend of the Monkey King continues in its brick-filled glory, in five new and aesthetically impressive LEGO Monkie Kid 2023 sets, featuring its largest mech build ever.
The LEGO Monkie Kid theme is still going strong since its inception 4 years ago. And with a colorful story based on the mythical story of The Journey to the West, this impressive line of LEGO sets has drawn a lot of fans and collectors.
For this initial wave of LEGO Monkie Kid 2023 sets, the 15-inch tall Monkey King Ultra Mech is certainly an eye-catcher. This and the entire wave of its 1HY 2023 sets are all slated to be available in January 2023. For a more in-depth look at what these sets have to offer, take a look at their official images and product descriptions below.
