Like most children of the 1980s, officially licensed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Lego sets would seem to be a no brainer. The only problem is that our Lego Overlords are evil geniuses in that they find a way to spread out the team across multiple sets. This makes it exponentially expensive for compulsive collectors like myself. This is nothing new, as they have pulled similar moves with their Lord of The Rings, The Hobbit, and Avengers sets.
I sat down and did the math, and found the cheapest way to get all four Ninja Turtles:
79100 – Krang’s Lab Escape – includes Michelangelo (12.99)
79101 – Shredder’s Dragon Bike – includes Donatello ($24.99)
79103 – Turtle Lair Attack – includes Leonardo & Raphael ($49.99)
To obtain all four ninja teens you’re going to have to shell out (see what I did there?) …..$87.97. Granted when compiling this data, I used the MSRP from Lego. If you aren’t able to shop online or get to one of the official Lego Stores you will be paying a premium due to the ridiculous markup at Toys R Us or Target.
