It feels like Lego has been teasing its upcoming Dungeons & Dragons set more than any other. But after lots of social media teases (and its fair share of leaks), Lego Ideas 21348 Dungeons & Dragons: Red Dragon’s Tale has finally been released in its full glory. And, as much as our bank balance hates us for saying it, it’s going to have to be a day one purchase.

Dungeons & Dragons: Red Dragon’s Tale is made up of 3,745 pieces, contains six minifigures and will set you back £314.99 when it launches on 4th April (or 1st April, if you’re an Insider member).

This is an Ideas set born from a competition run by Lego, asking for a Dungeons & Dragons-themed design to celebrate D&D’s 50th anniversary. The winning entry came from BoltBuilds, whose design has been tweaked to become the set revealed today.

The set itself is beautiful: it features a small inn in front of a castle, where a huge red dragon rests atop a bridge. The dragon can be removed and placed elsewhere to allow the set to become part of your D&D gameplaying.

The six minifigures include four adventurers, an innkeeper and a dragonborn. But some of the coolest features are the monsters found within the set: there’s a beholder, an owlbear and a displacer beast.
