After getting on board with various builds, see what we’ve got up to in the past here, it was time to step into the crazy world LEGO Ninjago and their Flying Jelly Sub!
Overall, this is a really fun piece with a whole host of different characters involved and a little bonkers considering what you’re building, a submarine shaped like a jellyfish but with those fans and fuels tanks, it’s even better, You also get the additional bonus of Jay, Takuma, Jelly and the blinking excellent Hammer Head as the accompanying mini-figures.
The main story, from the LEGO Ninjago Movie, is that ninja Jay is battling the shark army, and also protecting Takuma’s boat from the Jelly Sub. What’s smart about this one is all the little elements that make it a lot cleverer than you first assume, not only does the cockpit rotate 360-degrees but you’ve got flick missiles, movable rotors and although those ‘toxic’ tentacles were probably the most fiddly bit, and overall it is a little delicate to handle, it still retains the whole fun element of LEGO and the Ninjago series.
Check out our build video below, with Jen building, and also I’ve put together a gallery below for a closer look.
