In my next to last review of the 2023 LEGO Ninjago sets, we check out Jay’s Titan Mech (71785). It consists of 794 pieces and retails for $79.99.
There are five minifigures in the set, Jay, Nya, Bone King, Bone Knight, and Bone Warrior. One thing to note is that none of the minifigures are exclusive as they are in other sets in this wave.
Jay’s Core outfit has some lightning printing on one side of the gi. He has a double-sided head showing him with a determined look on one side and a nervous smile on the other. His accessories include a golden sword and a pair of nunchucks.
Nya’s blue and gray outfit has some nice water printing both sides of the torso. Her double-sided head shows her with a smile on one side and a determined expression on the other. Her accessories include is a golden sword and a sword/spear combo thing.
The Bone King is in the usual red chained outfit that we’ve seen before. His accessories include a bone sword and a sword.
The Bone Knight returns to be the banner carrier again for the green bone warriors. He has a bone axe as an accessory.
The Bone Hunter literally looks almost the same as the Bone Knight except that he wears a red hat an has soe bone sais as accessories.
The Pixal Bot has a printed face on the 2×2 tile. It uses some regular legs with printing which are in other Ninjago sets. It does use a bracket to hold two golden swords.
The other small build for this set is the wagon loaded up with missiles that fire when you pull down on the knob in the back. It works pretty well.
For the mech itself, it is the latest addition to the Ninjago mechs in recent years. It has a pretty slender frame and has a decent amount of articulation since it uses ball and click joints for the arms and legs.
The cockpit area uses the slope roof piece that still works very well and looks good. The head is very small and you don’t really recognize it until you look closely. Behind the head is a long headress attachment that curves backwards.
On each shoulder are some cannon type missile launchers. The arms are detailed using stickers. They are somewhat thin but it matches the slenderness of the mech. The forearms have some armor sections to make it look a bit bulkier.
The same goes for the waist and legs. The legs have click joints which is the norm for mechs as they help give more stability while posing it. There are also some ball joint ankle rockers although there’s a limited amount of movement here.
Lastly, we have the mech’s accessories which include the large dragon blade with a lantern on the end of the hilt. It also has two other katanas that can attach to the waist on the other side. I really like the look of the double sword samurai style and it doesn’t really impede in the way of poseability.
The LEGO Ninjago Jay’s Titan Mech (71785) is not my favorite mech that LEGO has made but it is still a good looking model. The thing I like best on it are the swords and the way they attach to the waist. The mech poseability isn’t bad but there’s some issues in some areas. The minifigure selection is subpar as all of them have already been in previous sets. The price point isn’t bad but I would wait until there’s a small sale on it.
Thank you to LEGO for sending in this set for me to review. The content above represents my own opinion and not the company. Review sets sent in does not guarantee a positive review.
