The Year of the Ox has begun and following the start of the lunar new year, LEGO Monkie Kid is releasing its first 2021 wave this March. The selection of sets includes some of the most unique models, which is certainly saying something considering the colourful creations so far.
The Demon Bull King will be taking a backseat for the second year of the theme as the Spider Queen rises to try and defeat the Monkey King and the rest of the Monkie Kid team once and for all, she’s certainly got the aesthetic down at least if her base is anything to go by. Speaking of which, here’s every set that you can go buy as they release today:
80018 Monkie Kid’s Cloud Bike
80019 Red Son’s Inferno Jet
80020 White Dragon Horse Jet
80021 Monkie Kid’s Lion Guardian
80022 Spider Queen’s Arachnoid Base
80023 Monkie Kid’s Team Dronecopter
80024 The Legendary Flower Fruit Mountain
40472 Monkie Kid’s RC Race
Among the eight sets, the standout has to be 80024 The Legendary Flower Fruit Mountain. This set recounts the origins of the Monkey King in a huge mountainous playset, with many exclusive minifigures of Chinese legend. Even the instruction booklet contains some information regarding both the legend and the development of the model.
