Explore the peaceful side of the Ninjago world!
The village of Ignacia lies within the heart of the Ninjago universe, filled with peace and quiet for its humble residents. Stop by the 4 Weapons shop, home to the forging experts of Ninjago, or visit the village's ancient Temple. This action-packed village includes 2 large two-story buildings perfect for completing your Ninjago collection, and is full of surprises and details, such as an impressive array of weapons, minifigures, and accesories, open and close features for both two-story buildings, and a secret light-up forge inside the shop triggered by hitting the target outside. The village also includes a tall water tower, tree, and cart with field worker. Whether you're looking to complement your Ninjago collection or wanting to start one, Ignacia Village is the perfect Japanese-style setting.
- 4 Weapons shop measures 7" (17 cm) high by 10" (25 cm) wide when open wide!
- Ancient temple measures over 8.5" (21 cm) high by 12" (30 cm) wide when open wide!
- Water tower is over 8.5" (21 cm) high!
- Includes 5 minifigures: blacksmith, field worker, village elder, Nya, and Cole!
Here is an overview of the set. When I was deciding what kind of set to make, I thought I would create a set that targets teen and adult fans of Lego to contrast with the kid-friendly craziness of the Ninjago theme; most direct-to-customer sets are made for older audiences. Also note that I did not make up the name for the set; credit for any names in this set goes to the Lego company.
This is the "4 Weapons" shop closed from the back (Again, I did not make the name up; I found it on the Ninjago website). I used the pictures on the website for reference, but many changes (particularly on the roof design) had to be made to accommodate for the open and close feature.
Here, you can see the temple closed and from the back. The second story (which can be removed from the building) is open from the back but the first story is not. This allows for more playability even when the building is closed. The small steps on the bottom allow the opened building's interior to flow onto the ground (see last picture).
When the temple's sides are pulled open, the lower roof rearranges to fit nicely with the front.
The back of both buildings. The shop's bottom interior features the blacksmith and his forge, while the second story is a storage room for weapons.
The temple's ladder is pulled down from the second story.
This was a fun build and I was surprised that the amount of pieces was fairly reasonable despite a heavy use of tiles and bricks, as well as other unorthodox techniques (SNOT for windows particularly); comparing this set to the Medieval Market Village (which has a similar layout/design and contains only 5 less pieces), this set's buildings are quite bigger.
