This is how much a complete LEGO NINJAGO City collection costs in 2023

As rumours swirl of a new addition to the LEGO NINJAGO City modular building line-up, here’s how much you’ll need to spend for a complete collection in 2023.

NINJAGO’s series of modular buildings originally debuted in 2017 with 70620 NINJAGO City, before expanding with 70657 NINJAGO City Docks in 2018. For a while, it seemed like that was the sum total of sets we’d receive in the collection – until 2021, when the LEGO Group debuted 71741 NINJAGO City Gardens seemingly out of nowhere.

That release was made no less puzzling by the fact that both of the original sets in the line had long since retired, and were (and still are) only available on the aftermarket. The towering 5,685-piece set has seemingly sold pretty well, though, because the LEGO Group is now rumoured to be continuing the series in summer 2023 with 71799 NINJAGO City Markets.

If this is the excuse you need to finally jump on board the LEGO NINJAGO City modular building train, keep reading to find out how much each of the current trio will cost – and the sum total of buying a complete collection of LEGO NINJAGO City sets in 2023.

70620 NINJAGO City

RRP: £259.99 Current price: £546 new, £440 used Pieces: 4,867 Release date: September 1, 2017

The building that started it all arrived with The LEGO NINJAGO Movie, and immediately caught the eye of legions of adult fans who had never given NINJAGO a second glance. 70620 NINJAGO City is packed to the brim with creative techniques, and established a genre-blending aesthetic that’s since launched a successful series of sets. Just prepare to dig deep if you want a copy now…

70657 NINJAGO City Docks

RRP: £199.99 Current price: £430 new, £355 used Pieces: 3,553 Release date: June 1, 2018

70657 NINJAGO City Docks landed on shelves nine months after its predecessor, expanding horizontally rather than vertically, but didn’t meet with quite the same critical reception as the original set. That may explain why the LEGO Group decided not to pursue a follow-up in 2019, but we’ll never know for sure. The facts are thus: the series did continue in 2021, may grow further in 2023, and despite initial opinions, the docks will still cost you a pretty penny.

71741 NINJAGO City Gardens

Price: £299.99 Pieces: 5,685 Release date: February 1, 2021 Available: Now

The one and only LEGO NINJAGO City set currently available at and in LEGO Stores, 71741 NINJAGO Gardens is also the biggest NINJAGO set of all time (for now). It’s arguably the most impressive of all three sets so far, too, marrying the series’ unique architecture with a brighter and bolder colour scheme. If you can’t afford to go back and collect the previous two sets, don’t miss out on this one – if rumours are true, it won’t be lonely on your shelf for long.

71799 NINJAGO City Markets

Price: $369.99 Pieces: 6,163 Release date: Summer 2023 Available: TBC

LEGO 71799 NINJAGO City Markets rumoured

We don’t know much about 71799 NINJAGO City Markets at the moment, but Promobricks claims it will usurp 71741 NINJAGO City Gardens as the theme’s biggest set to date. It’s reportedly due to hit shelves in summer, two and a half years after the gardens – and if this is signalling a new biennial subtheme for LEGO NINJAGO, now is the time to jump aboard. You don’t want to be paying aftermarket prices for any more of these things.

Remember, 71799 NINJAGO City Markets is still only a rumour at this stage, so take it with a grain of salt until officially confirmed by the LEGO Group.

There you have it: you’re close to £1,000 buying these sets used, or well in excess of that four-figure mark for new. Don’t forget that that’s before shipping, too – and if you want to buy from sellers within the UK at BrickLink, you’re looking at a pretty big jump in price. But they do look stunning together…

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
