Eh this has always been a thing. Monster Fighter's and Atlantis had all the keys/rings in one of the bigger sets. Same with the old golden weapons. 

Kind of but I believe what @Fenghuang0296 was getting at is that it's weird that the yellow one is only in the Pagoda. I think in the past, anytime they've done a group of collectibles where they're all available in one set, there was also a way to get them all without buying that set.

Anyone know when the sets are actually gonna be up on Lego.com? Id like to give my thoughts on them but it’s kinda hard without decent pics and prices. Never seen them take so long to be added.

Pretty much yeah. That and it has been a while since we had these collectibles, so I was kind of thinking we were done with them permanently. But yeah, it’s just strange that, since you have to buy the Pagoda to get the yellow one anyway, and that comes with all five of them, what’s the point in putting the other four in different sets?

Oh, another thing I noticed; the heroes seem to be wearing sports jerseys or something now? I thought it was some kind of monk uniform at first glance, but no, they’re all different - and, annoyingly, MK has #1, Mei has #2, Tang has $4, Pigsy has $5 and Sandy has #6. These are all in the Pagoda and are fine. But Monkey King has #3 and is only in the Nine-Headed Beast.

. . I wouldn’t even mind if these sets were distributed normally like every other theme, but they’re only available from Shop@Home in Australia and therefore never get discounts so I end up trying to make the most out of as few sets as possible and it strains my budget. -,-

Same here. It has me curious there. I heard that Jurassic World theme would be revealed in roughly two weeks on Lego.com. I think Monkie Kid sets might be added after mid-month?

If another animation studio did take over. I couldn't tell. Looked about the same to me honestly.

IDK. Hopefully it gets a bit of an upgrade before release like that teletoon s11 trailer for ninjago, but some of the character movement and details make it feel very manmade and janky. Not complaining too much, I know the show is run by a team who really love it, so I know the story and music are still gonna be awesome. Im sure I'll get used to it and stop complaining but it's just a bit of a shock right now. In other news, now that the sets are fully revealed, I can give my thoughts.

Team power truck - £60. The least inspired IMO, a dump truck? I love the balcony at the front and the cat post, I like the colours, and the skid steer for pigsy is interesting. Im very curious how they will explain how Sandy got his hands on this haha. The function is less impressive, just popping the back of and it becomes.... a food stand? figures are cool though, love that centipede. i think its a great concept but im still a bit iffy on execution. The price is alright too actually. 

9 Headed beast - £75. Looks absolutely awesome but also falls prey to a problem most MK sets have where it will look awful without the big foil elements. Awesome colour scheme though, and those teal recolours of blades are sick. The figs are also pretty good, I love that MK mech and shrine, I'll definitely try and cobble it together with my own parts. Price though isn't great, Id like to see it at £60 realistically. Shoutout to the gold egg splat parts for pagoda steps. 

Ring of fire mech - £95. Oh boy where to begin. Whilst im excited to get such a big set for a side character, I cant help but feel this is far too cluttered. The foil is a real disadvantage here. Not a big fan of the wheels on the back, if I ever get it they're definitely being modded to go on the bottom. The colours just feel too much, too loud sadly. speaking of colours, the back of it is really ugly, greens pinks and grey technic everywhere. Interesting joint usage too. I really like the quad copter though. Figures are alright but a bit stingy I feel for such an expensive set. MK has a really awesome white dragon horse bike style helmet though, I absolutely need that. Im glad we are getting more Nezha content though. Price is, again, too expensive but giant tires, and all those foil bits and knee joints probably cost quite a bit. 

Pagoda - £125. My personal favourite, such an impressive build, and a cool colour scheme to boot. I love the height, and the rocky outcrop is nice. The interior is great, the only part I dont like are the open technic holes. The throne room is nice, as is the 2 floors below it. The lobby area looks really clean, and the dungeon is a good use of space. The waterfall on the side also looks clean. Figs are top tier too, Nuwa looks so cool, using the ring part on the back is something I did when I got the Jiro and empress mech set, for my own customs. Much more secure officially though. The new stone parts are really cool, I love the colours and intricate details. Full team too, minus Wukong, Nezha and Macaque. Erlang (I think thats his name) is awesome, his little temple looks good. The whole Set is pretty good, with a decent price too. Obviously I'd like it cheaper but im fine enough with the price. Kind of sad to see that this is the end of huge £150 summer location sets though.

Celestial Pagoda set is magnificent! I’m not pleased with its price tag but the set stil looks great! I love those five stones and the builds. Even the minifigure selection.

On Lego.com it shows 4.9 stars for me. Speaking of megapolis, I just built it this week and it’s one of my favorite monkie kid sets ever!

Well that’s strange becuase you andI are in the same country and it still shows 2.5 out of 5 stars. I didn’t realize there are 7 reviews in the first place. 

You should leave your review there!

One thing I’m a bit puzzled by is the change of roof color. I’m still planning on pairing it with Heavenly Realms & it would’ve felt more cohesive with the and green roof. I’m still very excited to get it.

I think a part of it might be because the Celestial Pagoda isn't just another pagoda within the heavenly realms—I think it's supposed to be the pagoda Li Jing carries with him, which can be used to entrap any god, spirit, or demon (represented, at a smaller scale, by the small pagoda build held by the Li Jing minifigure in that set). As such, it's not so much a permanent architectural feature of that realm as it is a particular artifact.

Personally I also think the color scheme of this set (with tan, gold, lavender and light blue) looks quite nice and feels fresher than it would if it had shared the exact same color scheme as that earlier set. I think if you wanted to you could change all the Light Royal Blue parts for Sand Green (since I think they all come in that color as well), though it might be fairly expensive since it's a lot of parts in that color.
