Best Lego Ninjago Dragon Sets

by Last Updated: Sep 12, 2023All Legos

Lego Ninjago was firstly introduced to all Lego lovers in TV series. Even though no one expected such a huge success, it became popular among all people just in one year. That is why Lego decided to design sets with this theme and since then these Ninjago sets became successful among all Lego fans.

The Lego Ninjago collection is inspired by East Asian myths and culture featuring traditional Asian villages, clothing and much more. In these models, dragons are a popular theme, so here are the best Lego Ninjago sets featuring dragons:

This LEGO set features the largest ever NINJAGO 4-headed dragon, which has movable legs and tail, and its wings can become golden blades. The set also comes with 9 NINJAGO minifigures including 5 ninjas: Kai, Jay, Cole, Zane, and Golden Oni Lloyd with their golden weapons and then 4 villains: a Crystal King, 2 Vengestone Brutes and a Vengestone Warrior. Together, there are 989 pieces and kids aged 9+ can enjoy the build and experience even more fun with the intuitive LEGO Building app. NINJAGO fans can also explore other NINJAGO LEGO sets and recreate the most iconic scenes from their favorite TV series.

The biggest figure of this set is Jiro – the elemental dragon, which is over 9.8 in. (25cm) tall when standing. Other bigger figures include a golden robot figure – the Empress’ mech, and a ninja flyer vehicle. There are also 6 minifigures with weapons representing 3 ninjas: Jay, Zane, and Sora, and 3 villains: Lord Ras, Empress Beatrix, and Imperium Guard. The smallest figure is the Baby Riyu model. The golden blade wings and stud shooters of the flyer vehicle can be removed and used to enhance the elemental dragon in order to defeat the Empress’ robot. The dragon possesses a yellow energy element, and the kids can collect other 4 energy elements in different colors in other compatible NINJAGO LEGO sets.

It is of the black color with nice blue and orange details. This ninja toy kit is made of 286 pieces, so it is fun to play with this kit and to build it even for smaller children. It is the perfect Lego set for recreating fighting scenes from the Lego Ninjago Movie.

Lego Ninjago Jay’s Cyber Dragon 71711


Lego Ninjago Cyber Dragon


This building kit contains a tech dragon which has guns built in his limbs and five more minifigures. This dragon is made so that you can extensively play with it, you can move the tail, head and even the wings. Furthermore, you can fire the missiles which are built in the body. It is a little bit more complicated to build than the set above, as it has more than five hundred pieces, but it is super funny to do that. I believe that many children will enjoy building this Lego ninja action toy.

Lego Ninjago Castle of the Forsaken Emperor 70678


Lego Ninjago Castle of Foresaken Emperor


Inspiring to recreate the battle between ninja versus Ice Emperor, this kit is perfect for older children. It is made of 1,218 pieces and you will get the Castle of the Forsaken Emperor with the Forbidden Ice Dragon and minifigures. The dragon is 5” high, 14” long and 20” wide and it represents the dream of all the Lego Ninjago fans. Surely, it is possible to move with all the parts of the dragon. On the other hand, the castle has also many functions such as throne reveal, where the castle opens and reveals the throne, or the prison with lever-operated opening door. The bonus of this building kit is also the tornado spinner which enables to recreate the fights with tornado fighting technique.

Lego Ninjago Legacy Golden Dragon 70666


Lego Ninjago Golden Dragon


The Golden Dragon is one of the most famous models, as it was featured in the final battle between Golden Ninja Lloyd and Overlord in the Ninjago TV show. This building kit is made of 171 pieces containing the Golden Dragon and 3 minifigures. The model has a possibility to move with all body parts and furthermore there is a hidden gun in the dragon’s mouth – the dragon can spit the shots! I would recommend this set even to younger kids as it is quite easy to build.

I believe that everyone will be able to choose his/her favorite dragon Lego Ninjago set from the kits described above. The Lego Ninjago collection did not became famous accidentally, but because of the well-built models, and also because of the wide spectrum of play options as there is such a wide variety of battles and ninja fights that you can recreate when playing with the sets.
