"This model came to life from a great sketch model created by Adrian Florea, Adrian work for a long time in the Ninjago team being a defining factor of establishing the aesthetic and feel of Ninjago. This was the last Ninjago model he put his touch on.
The model went through minor downscale since the sketch model did not fit the price point. The most work went in to creating a solid foundation for the elevated platform and to refine and make the scissor roof function work.
This set is the set i have created with most standard bricks in them, this make it in my opinion a great parts pack for kids that want to build their one stuff.
When it comes to figures i love when there is an opportunity to put in side characters. And being able to integrate 3 in this set was great, the Jade princess, her bodyguard Mr. Hutchins and of cause for the first time in a Ninjago set, a baby."
- Resistance Cole with armor, Harumi in her "Jade Princess" attire, Hutchins, and baby Wu are all found exclusively in this set.
- This version of Chopper Maroon is also exclusive to this set, though his appearance is very similar to Nails.
- The set comes with a kendo training helmet, which was previously used in sets for the first season.
- This is the only Sons of Garmadon set to include all three Oni Masks, and the fourth set overall to contain all of the collectible items of a season altogether, the first three being 2507 Fire Temple, 70505 Temple of Light, and 70626 Dawn of Iron Doom.
- This is the first set to include Garmadon in his "lord" form since 2013 and the first overall to include Garmadon since 2015. Like the ninja featured in this wave, Garmadon's form is heavily inspired by his appearance in The LEGO Ninjago Movie.
- Hutchins appears in the set despite being deceased at the time the Temple of Resurrection was first used.
- This set is first seen in "The Jade Princess" as the Royal Palace but is not used as the Temple of Resurrection until "Dread on Arrival."
- This set is very similar to 70678 Castle of the Forsaken Emperor. Both have Lloyd and Cole as the only ninja, a non-ninja protagonist, the main antagonist, someone manipulated by the main antagonist, and two other antagonists. They also have a building that has a 'reveal function' of an emperor.
- The masks are arranged in a horizontal line instead of a triangular shape, as the ceremony is performed in the show.
- Garmadon exits from the roof instead of a pedestal, which is how he does in the show.
- In the product animation, Harumi and Hutchins are seen fighting the ninja, spoiling Harumi's true identity.
- In the picture, which shows the functions of the set, Garmadon has a different look than the included minifigure. He has a different face printing, a purple belt and the same upper torso as Kozu or Nadakhan. This is probably the original design of the minifigure.
- Included in this set is the Baby Wu minifigure, whose identity is not revealed and this is referred to as the mysterious baby in the description of the set. Unlike all other released babies as LEGO figures, Baby Wu does not have a classic piece of baby's body, but two connected studs. This is probably so that it can be put in the backpack that Cole has on his back.
- This is the only Sons of Garmadon set that does not contain a bike.
