Set Details

LEGO® Minecraft® The Training Grounds (21183) offers a sprawling, intricately designed playset that promises enduring enjoyment for both Minecraft enthusiasts and children aged 8 and above who relish creative construction and imaginative play. This hands-on Lego Minecraft set not only presents young builders with a gratifying project but also immerses them in an exciting gaming experience, producing an eye-catching model perfect for display. On the upper floor, there’s a dojo, where Minecraft warriors live and hone their skills, while downstairs, a blacksmith’s cave is equipped with an anvil, oven, and an armour stand, allowing kids to craft and repair their weaponry. Connecting these two levels is a cleverly operated trapdoor, activated by pushing a block beneath a tree, adding an element of surprise. This remarkable set even introduces thrilling battle action, courtesy of a marauding skeleton. And, when it’s time for a change, the levels can be separated and rearranged to create an entirely new play scenario.

Comparable Set Analysis

The majority of the LEGO Minecraft sets are minifig-scale which this set is, we’ve taken a closer look at some of the other minifig-scale sets with a similar price point that have retired. The performance is a little mixed; LEGO Minecraft The Bedrock Adventures (21147) has grown by 40% since retiring at the end of 2019 (9% annualised growth) whereas LEGO Minecraft The Desert Oupost has only grown 17% since retiring in 2017 (annualised growth of 3%).

The theme is solid enough and there are plenty of very good examples within the retired sets. In the comparable sets the picture is a little cloudier with some good sets and some that don’t perform as well and drag down the overall theme average.

This is a set we like and think will be a solid enough investment at the discounted price just below £50 with retirement just around the corner.
