The last of the initial wave of LEGO Monkie Kid sets I want to take a look at is Monkie Kid’s Team Secret HQ (80013). It is 1,959 pieces and retails for $169.99.
The set contains six minifigures, Monkie Kid, Mei, Pigsy, General Ironclad, Grunt, Roar, and Snort as well as a bigfig of Sandy. Monkie Kid is in his usual orange and red outfit. The back of the jacket shows the Monkey King with a huge grin while the legs are dual molded for his sneakers. There are some teal goggles that go around his neck. He has a double-sided head with a smirk on one side and an angry expression on the other. His accessory is his staff.
Mei is in her green and white dragon outfit which has printing of the dragon going around the torso and legs. Her helmet is also printed with the dragon head on the visor. She has a double-sided head with a smile on one side and an angry look on the other. She also has a separate pigtails hairpiece. Her accessory is the dragon blade.
Pigsy wears a blue vest that has his logo printed on the back. The legs are the medium sized ones that are printed in a cargo pants style. The head is specifically molded for Pigsy but who knows if LEGO will use it for another character later on. He wears a chef’s hat to complete his look and is weapon is his rake that is modified to have a scope and cannon.
General Ironclad has the typical torso that all the Bull Clones have. The one difference with him is that he has a shoulder pauldron as well as a cape on one side. The helmet also has gray horns instead of the magenta one. His accessory is an axe.
Grunt, Roar, and Snort are all the same with no differences between them. One of them does have a hammer as an accessory.
Lastly we have Sandy who is a bigfig that is the same as in other sets in the theme. There are some beads that are molded on the torso along with his massive beard. The pants are printed with some lines for his sweatpants and some magenta on the shoes. His accessories are his Crescent Staff and cat, Mo, which is in the same colors as Sandy.
Before we get to the ship itself, there are some smaller builds that accompany the set. First is a little mech for Monkie Kid. There’s quite a bit of articulation on it as all the limbs are on ball joints. The mech also has an accessory with a larger version of Monkie Kid’s staff.
Mei and Pigy also have small vehicles with their water jets. Mei’s water jet is stylized as her White Dragon Horse while Pigsy has one that resembles a pig.
The Bull Clones have their own assault boat as well. Theirs is able to sit two clones and it also has a double stud shooter.
On to the ship, the look of it seems like just your regular cargo ship but the inside of it is filled with secrets. Before we get to it, let’s take a look around the outside. There are a bunch of miscellaneous stuff on the deck like boxes and barrels. The top of the ship has a billboard for the company which is D.H Shipping Co. which uses a huge sticker on the tile plate. On the side of the middle section is some graffiti of Monkie.
The back of the ship has a crane along with a watchtower with a satellite dish. I think this area is the most underwhelming part of the ship.
At the lower stern areas on each side are some panels that lift up to reveal secret compartments to store Mei and Pigsy’s water jets. They are rather spacious and more than enough room to fit the water jets with the attachments still on it.
Once you open it up, it reveals a whole new play area with some hidden details. The biggest area is on the left where there’s a hanger bay for Monkie Kid’s mech. The staff for the mech can be stored on the opposite side of the wall.
On the other half of the ship, there’s a little area for Sandy which includes a hammock along with a entertainment area that has a video game on the TV. Next to that is a small bathroom.
Overall, the LEGO Monkie Kid Monkie Kid’s Team Secret HQ (80013) is a pretty nice set that incorporates some neat hidden features within the ship. This is probably my favorite part of the whole set. The little builds are not too significant and are just used to give kids more play options as a whole. The minifigure selection is alright and most of them can be found in other sets from the wave.
