This is easily one of my favorite Ninjago Dragons I have ever purchased. While it may be small in size, this figure retains all the same features as the original, and features even more articulation. It also comes with two really desirable Minifigures (Golden Lloyd, and the Overlord), and one figure that is nice for Army building (a Stone Scout). I would say if you are a Ninjago fan and you missed out on the original golden dragon like I did, this is a must have. If you already have the original, you still may enjoy this set, but you might find it disappointing.

Overall, I think this is an outstanding and affordable playset to have a positive sampling flavour with LEGO Ninjago classic series.

This set was a curious one due to the fact that it was scaled down from its counterpart in 2013. After I bought it and put it together I realized that ,even though it was smaller than the original, the set designer still was able to fit the same features and maneuverability into the build. I love the new head mold that resembles the original set. And of course! who can forget the awesome overlord minifigure that came in this set. Also lets not forget the updated golden ninja and stone army scout. Overall it has great play features, great minifigures, and adds another awesome dragon from the design team behind these amazing builds.

average 3.4 / 5 by Vaderfan2187

Overall, I think this set is okay, but not great. The minifigure selection is good, but the build is just alright as it's too skeletal for my liking. It's also kind of small which is disappointing, as a large golden LEGO dragon would have been absolutely epic. Playability is okay but nothing really jumps out, and the price feels too expensive, especially in relation to the size of the build.

Creating a smaller version of a retired set is probably among the most difficult challenges that a LEGO designer can encounter, particularly when the original model was very popular. However, I am pleased with 70666 The Golden Dragon. This dragon offers superior articulation and looks threatening, despite being considerably smaller than its predecessor. The updated head, for instance, is highly detailed.

It was a great choice on the part of the LEGO Group to made 70666 The Golden Dragon a smaller set for this Legacy series, letting children get access to the unique golden dragon and Lloyd in his gold form. For NINJAGO fans, this is a must own in this wave of ninja-nostalgia, especially at the incredibly fair asking price.
