    Monkie Kid TV Show Thread

    Apologies if this is out of turn, but I figured there should be a thread to discuss the (as of this writing) upcoming Monkie Kid TV Show. Thoughts so far? Personally, I love the new style; the CGI used for everything since Ninjago is getting kind of old.
  2. Here is my review on latest Monkie Kid set 80024 The Legendary Flower Fruit Mountain. It started to appearing in local stores already =) THE GOOD: Look absolutely stunning. Great display piece. Excellent minifigures. Some very interesting builds like the bridge and pathway to the top of the mountain. I like how the water fall opens. Surprisingly amount of depth and space to place minifigures. THE NOT SO GOOD: The clear stickers are a challenge to align properly on a reflective piece. The apple tree is too heavy to keep it upright. Overall, I love this set. It is a very good looking set either with all parts combined or even each part individually. The quality of the minifigures are excellent too. The build itself is not difficult but there are a lot of small details incorporated into this. It may lack play features but as an adult collector, I prefer great looking sets and play features really are secondary. I also like the amount of references to the Monky King origin in this desing. And it's great to see Lego decides to go with a lovely terrain build instead of Big-Mech or Vehicles. The only down side is some of the stickers are very hard to apply, may be this is just me. Also I believe the apple tree issues might just my piece connection not the best. Other than that, I can't really find any fault in this. Yes it is an expensive set but I'm satisfied with the end results. It's also great to see this wave now available at local specialty stores as well as lego store, which means more likely to get a discount later =) Anyway, I recommend this set to everyone even you are not a fan of Monkie Kid.
  3. Here is my review on Monkie Kid 80006 White Dragon Horse Bike: THE GOOD: Monkie Kid and Mei minifigures are extremely well done Nice colour scheme on the bike THE NOT SO GOOD: OVERPRICED!!!! NZD35 seems to be more fair The build of the checkpoint doesn't add much value to the set While the bike looks nice but it's a bit too big for minifigures Overall, this set is very very pricey. Given this is Lego exclusives it's very unlikely you get much discount from it. While you get a nice selection of minifigures, you don't get much value from this. I do like the colour scheme on the bike but personally I'm not a fan of oversized bike compare to a minifigure. I also feel a smaller mech or bike for the bad guys would be better than a check point build. Only get this set if you want some monkie kid related components but other big sets are even more pricey. Otherwise, if you are just into the minifigures, better buy the minfigs off private seller.
  4. The Monkie Kid sets are unique and quite fun (and so is the TV show btw) but as usually always when it comes to small Lego mechs, they are quite lacking. The huge Monkey King Mech set contains a tiny mech as a side build for one of the Bull Clones. Unfortunately that mech is quite lacking in articulation and details. Well, nothing a few additional parts can´t fix: Monkie Kid Mech (1) Monkie Kid Mech (2) Credit for the frame go to Chubbybots and M1ndbender who inspired me with their work and with the mech frame (i´m terrible at mech frames :D) I used many of the outstanding parts from the original mech like the metalbeards, the black 1x2 slope thingies,the golden ring and also the overall color palette. The Mech now has prober hands to grab things and fight but it also has its trademark arm cannon. I always thought the metalbeard beards would be great shoulder pads and build them in a way so they can move a bit to extend the moving range of the mech`s arms. Monkie Kid Mech (4) Monkie Kid Mech (5) Hope you enjoy this moc, leave a comment if you like and have an awesome day.
  5. Here is my review on Monkie Kid 80014 Sandy's Speedboat: THE GOOD: Great Spider Mech. Brilliant design on the legs and overall shape. Excellent Spider's Queen minifigure. In comparison, a cheaper way to get Pigsy and Sandy's minifig/big fig in the same set. Love the cloud piece attached to Monkie Kid's surf board. THE NOT SO GOOD: Still pricey ... The speedboat not the star of the set, May be it's just me but that's how I felt after I built it. Overall, I like this set and think it's a good addition to the Monkie Kid theme. For those who knows about Journey to the West will definitely appreciate the Spider's Queen minifigure. Although the set is called speedboat, I do feel after building the set the Spider mech is way better in terms of design and look compared to the speedboat. Yes, the theme is overpriced but the contents often quite good. Great minifigures and parts. This set though, is a cheaper way to get both Pigsy and Sandy in one set. I do recommend this set if you like this theme or keen in getting a cool spider mech build, a few modifications would easily made the mech into a legit spider.
  6. Hey everyone, This is my first real Monkie Kid MOC Our heroes receive help from the Great Master Korin Mech, to stop Scream, the Evil Warlock Mech Rat from poisoning the land! Check out the Flickr album for more pictures: Monkie Kid and the Legend of Korin
  7. I have the following minifigure: Obviously, it's Princess Princess Iron Fan. But it's not the same as the one from the two sets in which she is known to be, 80010 Demon Bull King and 80016 Flaming Foundry, where she looks as shown below. Note the different torso prints. Also, and this could just be due to printing tolerances, her dress print is slightly lower in the minifigure above. The mystery minifigure (top) is LEGO, not some bootleg. I got it as a gift from LEGO. How come it has an alternative torso print? Is it from an as-yet unannounced set or with-magazine foil pack?
  8. Here is my review on Monkie Kid's 80009 Pigsy's Food Truck: THE GOOD: Great interior details inside the food truck. Great opening mechanisms for interior access. I like the graphic designs on the stickers. Excellent Pigsy minifigure. Interesting build for the Pig Mascot Machine Gun. Several elements that feed some dark humours for corrupted mind like me XD THE NOT SO GOOD: Because of the size of the truck, you can't just put it into a typical Lego City setting. I wonder if there is a way to replicate the excelling opening mechanism without visible gap for the joints. Overall, I think this is a good set. I enjoyed the building experience, the outcome and the minifigures. Thanks to size, the designer is able to put a lot of interior details into the food truck. I do feel the weaponised look is a bit over the top and too Zombie Apocalypse type of truck but it's ok the good parts overcome the little shortcomings and it's my personal preference anyway. The Pigsy minifigure is just great, can't wait to use the head with the torso and legs of the Pig Costume Guy XD. And I really wonder what's the idea behind using sausages on the grill and decorations while Pigsy is obviously related to Pigs. Also the back of the Pig Mascot on top, what do you think it looks like? XD. Despite a few flaws, I will still recommend this to everyone. It's not as good as the Monkey King mech but this is also good. And the price is probably one of the better ones in the overall Monkey Kid theme, in fact I found this set with the most reasonable pricing.
  9. Here is my review on the latest Monkie Kid 80012 Monkey King Warrior Mech: THE GOOD: The mech is impressive both size and look. The building experience is interesting. The legs have very smart designs and love the use of tires to give more tractions. The head looks lively. Great cockpit design with homage to Japanese animes. Tons of shiny gold colour pieces. New printed pieces (e.g. the peach and the takeaway box) Interesting side builds especially the flying cloud. THE NOT SO GOOD: I wish the knees have a bit more movements. The 2 citizen minifigures would be better if there are exclusive prints. The price is high (but I'm satisfied with the end results) Overall, this is one excellent mech set. I agree the pricing is bit over the top but I'm totally satisfied with the end results. The mech itself is the star, it's authentic and massive. Some designs may be reused to make a LEGO GUNDAM possibly. The finished model is strong for various poses but I do with the knees have more articulations. As a fan of The Journey to the West, I love it. Originally I thought it's a bit too futuristic but this mech kinda work. The side builds and minifigures selection are excellent too. I'm now waiting for Bricks & Pieces to reopen so I can get more shiny gold pieces (the gold banana!!!!) Despite the high pricing, I do recommend this set and if you are looking to buy something from this new theme, this is the one to go for!
