The LEGO Ninjago Movie Flying Jelly Sub (70610) Review

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Flying Jelly Sub (70610)

I haven’t done a review in a while for The LEGO Ninjago Movie but the next set that I’ll be doing is the Flying Jelly Sub (70610). It has 341 pieces and retails for a decent $29.99 price point.

Minifigures

Jay is in his blue ninja outfit that we’ve seen before. He does have a double-sided head that shows an angry expression on one side and a nervous smile on the other. His accessory is his kusarigama.

Takuma is a citizen of Ninjago City and he wears a simple blue robe with some brown pants. I do like his scared face printing with a pencil moustache. His hair piece is the bun hairstyle and his accessory is an oar.

Jelly is one of Garmadon’s henchmens and he resembles a jellyfish. His torso has printing of the tentacles going down the front and back. He wears a dome around his head to represent a jellyfish head. His accessory is a fish spear.

Hammer Head is the other henchman in this set and we’ve seen this minifigure before with his head mold being a hammerhead shark. His accessory is a fish blade.

Build

The main part of the build is the Flying Jelly Sub itself. The controls are at the central area of the vehicle which is covered up using a trans-clear dome. The control panel is printed with some antennas as controls and it even has a cup next to them.

On the sides of the cockpit are some weapons that are attached using ball joints. One side that some harpoons that can not fire while the other side has some flick-fire missiles.

Behind the cockpit are a couple of rotors that has a sticker that says Jelly Mini Sub. There are also a couple of yellow canisters with some hazard stripes around them. They sit on some clips which can be turned downwards if you desire.

The top half of the Flying Jelly Sub sits on top of a plate with a pin which allows it to spin a full 360 degrees. On the bottom half of the sub, there are six tentacles who different sets of hinges so you can position it in various poses. On three of the tentacles, there are some stickers for them.

On the belly of the Flying Jelly Sub are some trans-orange chains which each one having a tooth piece at the tip. Visually, the tentacles look great but unfortunately unless you have the set sitting up high, you probably won’t get the full effect since they just lay on the ground. They look a little bit better if you have them trailing the sub.

The other part of the build for this set is Takuma’s boat. Although it’s a fairly small one, there’s quite a bit of detail on it as well. The back cabin area uses 1×4 tiles angled at about 45 degrees to give its shape. Towards the front is a lantern with a couple of flags as well as three buckets.

Results

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Flying Jelly Sub (70610) is an example of a set that can make a great army builder set, until the Piranha Attack (70629) coming out in the next wave. The sub itself is a quirky little build while the boat is not too shabby either. You do get some pretty rare parts in this set and even some that are exclusive to just this set. It was a fun build and I do recommend you pick it up.
