"For this lineup of products, we wanted to go close to what a castle line could be. The good thing about Ninjago is that it can be both high-tech and low tech at the same time.
The castle was inspired by the iconic Japanese castles And taking inspiration of classic Ninjago Fire castle with having a build-in transformation feature.
The "dragon" (or wyvern) was created in a way where scale should play in, that's why it has a smaller head than normal. I created the dragon so if you place it behind the throne and fold out the wings it will create a backdrop for the full castle like the Fire dragon did in the fire temple. This was never comunicated on the box or elswear."
- Boreal's position behind the castle is not featured in the show. This was explained by Michael Knap, who stated, "It was never communicated but is still adding display value to the set."
- Lloyd FS and Akita's human form are exclusive to this set.
- The Ice Emperor is also exclusive to this set in regions where the Ninjago Magazine isn't available, such as the US.
- This set first appeared in Zane's dream in the episode "Wasted True Potential" but makes its first physical appearance in the episode "The Never-Realm."
- Despite being included in the set, Lloyd's golden sword and Cole's golden hammer were never taken with their respective owners when the Ninja traveled to the Never-Realm in the show.
- This set is very similar to 70643 Temple of Resurrection. 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.
- On the sides of the throne, there are cockpit pieces first seen in Nexo Knights, recolored in blue.
- This set has more pieces than 70677 Land Bounty but costs less.
