Selected new LEGO sets, including one from City and one from NINJAGO, will be compatible with the LEGO Boost system.
During the recent International Toy Fair, that took place in Nuremberg, Germany, the LEGO Group announced that two new summer sets will be compatible with LEGO Boost. PromoBricks reports that a new LEGO City and a new LEGO NINJAGO set will be able to be combined with 17101 Creative Toolbox to give the models extra functions.
LEGO NINJAGO 70654 Lightning Dragon
The LEGO Ninjago Lightning Dragon (70654), originally Storm Bringer, is available from June at a price of 39.99 euros. The green dragon is reminiscent in appearance of the already available Green Ninja Mech Dragon (70612) and is in principle a normal play set, which can be brought to life with the help of LEGO Boost. LEGO Boost parts like a sensor or motor are not included in the set, so the original LEGO Boost Set is needed so that the lightning dart can move properly.
LEGO City 60194 Arctic Exploration Truck
The LEGO City Arctic Exploration Bridge (60194) is also available from June. The set has an RRP of 49.99 euros and is part of the new LEGO City Arctic set range , which will be available from June. Also this set is a normal play set, which thanks to LEGO Boost but can be properly upgraded and thus has significantly more play value than before.
This new compatibility is no doubt intended to encourage more fans to pick up the LEGO Boost 17101 Creative Toolbox, with two themes that are popular with children having been selected to trial the new concept. If these sets prove popular, perhaps more themes will incorporate Boost compatibility in the future.
