I'm a bit torn. Impressed with the drawing quality. Ok w/ voiceover (always prefer sub but believe not the original audience). Eh about the story line. 

Not seeing much discussion on the sets (unless someone can direct me). Not sure how to view these as investments. I personally like the monkey king mech and will probably purchase but the starting price seems a bit high.

Not sure about this range, looks like a mix of Ninjago, hidden side and overwach.

Think aim would be to get more ground in China, d2c might help them as they don't have to deal with local retailers. Maybe also cannibalizing ninjago on the long term, as this series runs for ages?

Anyway think most of the sets dont have new great concepts. Also lego d2c is not really known for good discount.

Maybe will stock up on the mech if there will be a good discount. Overall don't really believe in this.

Well, America, we had a hell of a run. Get use to the new reality of China being the super power.

The means of production are all geared to feed this new beast. It starts with our toys and God knows what will come next...

Since when did the COVID thread open back up??

Why cant these just be looked at as cool LEGO sets? If these were still region locked, the conversation would be a lot different.

I can only imagine if this whole theme wasn't open to buyers in the U.S.

As soon as there is a cool $99+ GWP, I'm picking up the mech for a personal build.

80012 - Monkey King Warrior Mech is the winner for me

Just wish it wasn't $150 RRP

Yeah, the newer adaptations of Monkey King use stylized sticks as weapon

whereas the older ones just use regular ol stick(s)

Ah now i know: I have been in Vietnam several years ago and that series was everywhere 24/7, if its the same in china, that could be a wise Investment for the long run, but its a gamble. I think I will be going with safer bets.
