NOTE: This article was updated after publication when the LEGO® Group released new images and details.
While no official press release is out, I cannot sit on this news any more. I am SO excited! Yesterday, the January 2021 LEGO® catalog arrived in my mailbox. It features a two page spread on the epic new expansion to Ninjago City. The original is one of my all-time favorite sets. Additionally, I own the previous expansion, Ninjago City Docks. Now, Ninjago City Gardens is coming out REALLY soon. When I say soon, I mean this week soon. Additionally, the LEGO® Group posted images on the official site!
Official product description from the catalog:
Uncover ancient secrets and inspire new stories with the spectacular Ninjago City Gardens. Created to celebrate the ten-year anniversary of LEGO® Ninjago, this three-tiered set is filled with familiar characters and hidden surprises for fans who have helped to bring this legendary world to life.
Relive all the excitement and thrills of 10 years of Ninjago City with this amazing three-tiered model and garden. Packed with 20 minifigures, you can team up again with the ninjas and their allies to play out favorite action scenes from the Ninjago TV series, or proudly display this eye-catching model. An awesome building toy to captivate both older and younger Ninjago fans.

Look at all those Minifigures! Additionally, one of them is Golden Sensei Wu. Interestingly, the catalog ad indicates 20 Minifigures. However, the pictures only show 18 and the website advertises 19. Granted, there is a buildable robot and a husky. Those are not minifigs in my book though. Consequently, I am hoping some of the advertised surprises include mystery minifigs. Diagon Alley had one, so it is not beyond the realm of possibility.
This build looks incredible. It also has more pieces than the original set. I cannot wait to get my hands on this. What are your thoughts? Feel free to comment below or reach out on social media.
Until next time,
