LEGO 70631 Garmadon’s Volcano Lair Now Available

December is a great month for LEGO — and especially if you’re a Ninjago fan! We’ve reviewed the LEGO 70632 Quake Mech, and now it’s time for the LEGO Garmadon’s Volcano Lair!


LEGO 70631 Garmadon’s Volcano Lair Set

The Ninjago franchise has grown since December with another LEGO set. This time it’s the LEGO 70631 Garmadon’s Volcano Lair, released on December 1st, 2017!

Based on the LEGO Ninjago Movie, this set recreates Zane’s excursion into Garmadon’s lair and against the Shark Army. With this set, you’ll have a look at the villain’s hideout, lots of minifigures (there are 5 in this set) and much more.

The interior of the lair is fairly detailed, including details such as teapots and coffee machines, as well as fish elements, translucent lava and water elements, and other accessories that add to the volcano experience. Like in the movie, the lair has Garmadon’s face for an entrance. It also includes a shark figurine, and three minifigures for 2017-2018.

Like the Quake Mech set, the LEGO Garmadon’s Volcano Lair is great for children aged 8-14, but will surely also charm younger audiences as well (especially if they’re into Ninjago!). The finished build is 26cm high, 31cm wide and 16cm deep.

As more of a kids-oriented set, it’s very playable, with features such as a launcher for minifigures at the volcano’s top. There is also an “exploding” wall, which adds to the playability of the set. The whole lair is set on blue pieces, suggesting it’s on water, like in the movie. The shark figure is also a nice touch! For a relatively small piece count, the LEGO 70631 set has a lot of details and great aesthetics for a very good price.
