LEGO Ninjago

The Ninjago Movie

Posted on Updated on

       The Warner Brother’s interests in LEGOs has led the to the decision of making a LEGO Ninjago movie.  The upcoming movie, The LEGO Movie, trailer has been hit so hard by fans that Warner is said to be making plans for a Ninjago movie.  Thanks to BrickExtra we’ve been notified early about the movie.  Today I also looked it up and found several movie websites are talking about a Ninjago movie.

One of LEGO’s most popular themes why wouldn’t it be a great idea to make a Ninjago movie.  Ninjago, the TV series, has been a favorite show of LEGO fans all over the world.  Kai, the ninja of fire and his amazing crew along with the Green Ninja, Lloyd, battle Garmadon and his army of snakes and stone army.  


With Chima not being what was expected from LEGO I’m sure LEGO would love to have this movie to once again lift up the Ninjago theme!  In the coming year we don’t know what to expected from LEGO Ninjago.  We will just have to wait and see what LEGO will throw at us, but I’m sure we’ll be prepared!

So what do you think?  Do you think the movie is true?  Is Chima what you expected from LEGO?  Please share your thoughts and comments in the comment section below and look out for Ninjago news soon!

 

Ninjago and four?

Posted on

Have you ever noticed that the producers of Ninjago must love the number 4?  I have!  Over the couple of years that Ninjago existed, I’ve noticed many things in Ninjago that have to do with the number four.  For example, there are four main ninjas, four weapons, and four elements (we won’t get into all that just yet)

.

But why is four the main number in Ninjago?  Maybe because LEGO just picked a random number or maybe they picked the ninjas and noticed that there are four, or maybe it was accidental.  Who can tell?  I can!  I contacted LEGO several days ago to ask that question and here is the response:   “So the reason that ther’e so much focus on the number 4 is because there is 4 different elemets in the land of NINJAGO to control.” (this is a copied quote so please don’t blame us for the mistakes! ;) )

If you don’t know what I mean by four, here’s a list of what I noticed has four in Ninjago: Four ninjas, four generals in the skeleton army, four main snake tribes, four elements, four kinds of each snake in each of the four snake tribes, four action cards in each spinner, four different kinds of stone army men, four weapons of Spinjitzu, four Fang Blades, four Golden Snake Staffs, four Lloyds in different suits, four skeleton army men (not generals), three four armed figures, four dragons and four sets with four figures in them 2011-2012.

I may have missed several so if I didn’t list them please just say so in the comment section below!   Hope you enjoyed my article and look out for more articles about the upcoming season of Ninjago!

Kai’s Fire Mech Review

Posted on

Written by, Geneva – gid617

January 2013 saw six new Ninjago sets featuring a new type of Ninja suit and the stone army!  Today I’ll review the smallest set of the line: Kai’s Fire Mech, a small Mech that was built for him by Nya, with a fire gun on one hand and grabbing clips on the other!  For a set that costs $9.99, 102 pieces is a fairly good amount, especially since some of them are the larger sized robot pieces, often used in Hero Factory, for example.  The set includes both Kai in his new Kimono suit and a short stone warrior with a crossbow, plus an awesome new fire blade for Kai!

The Mech is fun to build and has some nice SNOT (studs-not-on-top) work for some of the detailing.  But the best part is posing it afterwards!  With the flexible hand and the rotating blaster, he can even stand on one hand!

Poses (2)

            If you recall, Nya was the one that built the Mech, so it’s not surprising that it shares many similarities with its “big sister”!  You can check it out with a slightly modified version of the Samurai Mech below!

With Samurai (1)

            As a bonus, with some clever posing the Mech can be stuck on the back of Cole’s Earth Driller, allowing Cole to carry it around!

            But the best part of any LEGO set, for me, is changing it!  I did make some changes to the body, but most of what I did was with the hands – I changed the blaster for another hand and added a small harpoon to the other hand!  You can see how it turned out below!

Kai's Fire Mech II  (3)

            So how do you like Kai’s Fire Mech?  Do you plan on getting it or do you have it already?  Did you get any inspiration from this review?  Feel free to share your comments and questions below!

Ninjago website update

Posted on Updated on

Exciting news everyone!  A couple weeks ago LEGO updated the Ninjago site!  They added a new background, a game, and a couple more exciting things!  LEGO fans have been waiting months for this website update and finally it’s here!  We’ll dig in a little deeper in this article.  So here we go!

On the homepage they added a cool setup with arrows and with featured videos and games.  LEGO only added three slides, but hopefully they’ll add some more in the future.  LEGO also added a nice background with clouds and mountains.

LEGO also updated the models.  We now have images and descriptions of each new Ninjago set. You also get access to the instructions, check price, and add to wishlist all in one place!  That was added a several months ago, around when the new sets came out, but for those who haven’t seen it now you know! 😀

There’s a great new game that’s super cool!  Yes, it’s “The Final Battle”!  LEGO games, on lego.com, in my opinion aren’t very good, but this one is great!  They came out with the game as an app for iOS products (Apple devices) a couple months ago, so some LEGO fans may be familiar with the game already.  The game is called The Final Battle.  You can play it online or on your Apple device.  The game is full of action defeating the Stone Army and sometimes even Garmadon!  Be all the ninjas even The Golden Ninja!  Move on to each level defeating hundreds of the evil army because everyone knows good always wins!

There’s one more thing, but this has been on the site for a while.  Videos!  Ninjago TV has over 50 videos, maybe around a 100.  Ninjago TV has shorts from the TV series, descriptions featuring the sets, and lots more!  Be sure to check that out too!

 

So what you think?  Not such a big update, but it’s okay.  What do you think is your favorite part of the update?  The game?  The background or what about the models?  Well, if you haven’t decided yet, you can check out the website for yourself HERE!
