Based on an iconic scene from the latest Marvel movie, this LEGO set features a dragon with a buildable, articulated body, plus iconic minifigure characters to inspire epic role play and imagination. Read Jaxon’s review of LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi Battle at the Ancient Village.
Jaxon (age 8) has been dying to see Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings but, eight weeks into what feels like a neverending lockdown in Auckland, we of course have not been able to get to the cinemas to see it.
Luckily, as a very close second to actually seeing the movie, the LEGO Shang-Chi Battle at the Ancient Village set was a great distraction for this disappointed kid, whose eyes lit up when he saw the box.
LEGO builders, assemble!
He got started on it right away and was able to get the first part of the build underway on his own. The box says it’s for age 8+ and Jax is a pretty experienced LEGO builder but he did need Dad’s help the further into the build he got. This was a really nice way for him and his Dad to spend time together as they put music on and worked on it together, having lots of laughs along the way.
Working as a team, it took Jaxon and his Dad less than hour to complete the build. And the finished result was spectacular! The dragon has an articulated body so that it can twist and turn when its being played with, and even though Jax hasn’t seen the movie and isn’t that familiar with the characters, he got into some great imaginative role play with them and the dragon. There is a detachable water base for the dragon to sit on when the battle scenes are over and this makes it a great display set too.
Would we recommend this LEGO set?
This is a fantastic gift for any LEGO fan and is quite different to some of the other sets we’ve had in the past. It would make a great Christmas gift, and it’s available at the Farmers Toy Sale for an unbeatable price at the moment.
If you know a kid who loves super heroes and LEGO, then LEGO Shang-Chi Battle at the Ancient Village is a winning combination!
