Buy Lego Adventurers Orient Expedition Mount Everest

Lego Orient Expedition was a sub theme of the popular Lego Adventurers series that was released in 2003. The sets featured Johnny Thunder and his fellow scientists, Dr Lightning and Pippin Read along with their new Asian friends and covers their trip through Asia to find the Golden Dragon of Marco Polo and his three other treasures. They are followed and thwarted by their nemesis Lord Sinister and his henchmen. Their journey starts in India before going on through Mount Everest, which are the sets that this hub concentrates on, before going onto China.

One of the great features of this sub theme was that every set with more than 100 pieces came with stat cards or a piece of a game board that could be added to the Orient Expedition Board Game. The Orient Expedition Board Game was played using instructions in the back of the instruction booklets. You move your minifigures, overcome challenges from the set and acquired items. The three skills are courage (denoted by a shield similar to a police badge), speed (denoted by wings), and luck (denoted by a clover). On challenges, you would have to choose a skill to use. If you won, you got the golden item. The 2 players would play the sides of the Adventurers and Lord Sinister's minions.

Ebay and Amazon are a great source for new and used Lego sets and they can be at extremely reasonable prices, Ebay also gives you a huge variety to choose from as well as allowing you to still find items that are no longer available
