Building Ninjago City (Part Two)

Here is our second part of the building of Lego Ninjago City. The largest set I have ever laid my hands on, and one of the most awesome looking one. As a reminder, I decided to not rush to build it, quite the contrary, I’ll...

Building Ninjago City (Part One)

So, this week-end was my birthday, and after pondering it for a few months (pretty much since it was released), I dove in and got the Ninjago City Set (Lego 70620). I really wasn’t sure if I should get it. I never cared for Ninjago...
