At New York Toy Fair, the LEGO Group revealed LEGO NINJAGO 70652 Stormbringer for the first time. The set is compatible with [geot exclude_country=”United States”]LEGO Boost[/geot][geot country=”United States”]LEGO Boost[/geot], allowing fans to programme the dragon model to perform certain functions. The set will be priced at $39.99.
Tom’s Guide shares images and information about the upcoming summer set, that comes with three minifigures and requires [geot exclude_country=”United States”]LEGO Boost 17101 Creative Toolbox[/geot][geot country=”United States”]LEGO Boost 17101 Creative Toolbox[/geot] to mobilise. The features include making the dragon move its head, roar, and react differently depending which minifigure is seated on its back.
Further details were explained to the Tom’s Guide team:
Lego said that the Ninjago Stormbringer will also be able to respond to being petted, answer questions when it detects a voice and fire missiles. The company did not have a demo of the Lego City set, which will work with Boost, and didn’t have many details about it.
While the functionality looks fun, hopefully the finished model will look a little more finessed when it launches on August 1.
