The LEGO City of Lanterns Arrives in 2022

Bright lights, big city


Fans of both LEGO Monkie Kid and the NINJAGO City modular sets may be interested in The LEGO Monkie Kid City of Lanterns which was revealed earlier this week.

The set aesthetic feels very similar to the bright colours and rich features of the NINJAGO City builds with multiple stores on multiple floors and a lot going on.

For a start, a bright pink "Pigsy" rapid transit train surrounds and weaves around the city build. There are a variety of stores including a LEGO toy shop, hotel, Speedy Panda store, 2 restaurants, karaoke booth and bubble tea café, each filled with detail and a story to tell.
