This set is brilliant. It's so good it makes the Ninjago City set look even better. I did find it a bit tricky to build. The designers have opted to build some walls brick upon brick and then only securing them (to adjacent walls) at the very top. This of course makes the build some what unstable for a short period of time. I do think younger builders may find this a challenge. The colour scheme and decoration elements are fantastic. The stickers are less than 60 so a massive improvement on its predecessor. It comes with a large amount of Minifigures although I do find it super tedious getting the same Lloyd and Garmadon figures over and over and over again......yawn. Other than that I really hope Lego make another addition to this theme.
The building experience is an important aspect of any LEGO set but larger models like this one inspire particularly high expectations. 70657 NINJAGO City Docks does not disappoint, including a wonderful selection of unusual techniques and some rare pieces. There are similarities to 70620 NINJAGO City which may disappoint some fans, although that seems inevitable as the two sets have been designed to connect. The minifigure selection is also very impressive, including a sufficient number to adequately populate the docks as well as several popular characters from the animated series.
I didn't think there was much that could make me love Ninjago City more, but this set does. Now, instead of being a very cool one-off set, Ninjago City is officially a theme. The Docks have pin holes on both ends, and this theme is just waiting to be expanded upon further. This set is stuffed with details from the layered water to the multitude of roof designs and everything in between. And with over 3,500 pieces for only $230, it's a phenomenal deal.
70657 NINJAGO City Docks contains 3553 pieces but is still a great deal smaller than its predecessor. Equalling the exceptional standard of 70620 NINJAGO City must therefore have presented an almost insurmountable challenge. Personally, I am delighted with this set! Not only does it include incredible detail but the model offers considerable play value, containing plenty of hidden passageways and an array of different rooms to explore.
