Official look at the micro LEGO Ninjago City (40703) promotional set

LEGO’s online store has given us our very first look at 40703 Micro Ninjago City, an upcoming LEGO promotional item.

At this stage, it’s unclear what the redemption mechanic will be for the Micro LEGO Ninjago City set, so I don’t know if it’ll be a gift with purchase, or if it’ll be available as a LEGO Insiders reward.

40703 Micro Ninjago City has been available in China since the start of the year, where you could redeem one for 6,500 points. In China, you get 1 point for 1 RMB you spend, so 6,500 points roughly translates to about AU$1378 or US$913… which is shockingly high.

I don’t think the exchange threshold will be that high outside of China… as you could pretty much buy a full-sized retired LEGO Ninjago City for that much…

There will be 4 to collect in this series, including micro versions of 70657 Ninjago City Docks, 71741 Ninjago City Gardens and 71799 Ninjago City Markets, drawing parallels to the LEGO Houses of the World collection from 2023.

Houses of the World was released quarterly, and you had to spend US$250 / AU$400 / £220 / €250 on to qualify for one.

My money is on this being the same as the Micro Ninjago City collection.

This looks great for LEGO Ninjago fans, and I am a fan of these quarterly releases as well as micro-scale builds in general BUT.. I really hope these have more accessible thresholds, especially as many LEGO Ninjago fans are kids, or those without massive budgets to spend on LEGO.

The original 70620 Ninjago City set from 2017 is one of the most legendary Ninjago sets ever and has been critically praised for its awesome design, and now commands eye-watering prices on the secondary market, so it’s nice to see LEGO revive it in mini form.

I would very much prefer a full-sized remake though!

Stay tuned for more details of 40703 Micro Ninjago City including the release date, and redemption requirements!
