Designer's notes

Jestro's base built around a spinning lava beast monster. The colours and shape are all a bit busy, not the most coherent of buildings and a little hard to decode at first. I tried to put everything you would normally find in a castle here, armoury, library, dungeon, master bedroom, throne, kitchen etc.. The rubber frog in the bathroom is my favourite detail. The bathroom was controversial with one kid at a test who asked why he would put a bath in his castle, "He's the boss now, he never needs to take a bath ever again!".

The hover horse is, like all the other hover horses, Junya Suzuki's design.[2]

Trivia

  • The Bookkeeper and Lavaria in her normal form are exclusive to this set, as well as a black Scurrier.
  • Monstrox's castle first appeared in "Back to School" while the Mace Slammer appeared in the "Attack and Rescue" webisode short.
  • This set contains the most minifigures of the 2016 sets, with 10 in total.
