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!



Back to the Future 

Posted on Updated on

The LEGO CUUSOO project Back to the Future is approved and will be release July 18th!  Excitingly we have several images of the upcoming set.  If you look in the image below you can see the DeLorean Time Machine set is posted in a LEGO calendar.  


Now from looking at the calendar to the image below you probably can tell the wheels can be moved up or down.  You might be wondering what this movie, Back to the Future, is about.  Thanks to IMDb we have a short description of the movie, A teenager is accidentally sent 30 years into the past in a time-traveling DeLorean invented by his friend, Dr. Emmett Brown, and must make sure his high-school-age parents unite in order to save his own existence.”.  Sound exciting? IMDb collected ratings and it has a 8.5 out if 10 rating.  I think that’s pretty good.  

If you are wondering what it says on the calendar I cropped the image so you can read it a little better.

Sounds like an exciting product, yes?  If you have any comments please just post them in the comment section below.  

LEGO R2-D2 and friends

Posted on Updated on

            Thanks to Kockamania I have discovered something pretty cool.  Matt Armstrong of California made some amazing models of R2-D2.   I’m guessing he found the instructions to the set R2-D2 which is $179.99 (USD).


You’re probably thinking what’s the difference if he made a model of R2-D2 and found the instructions online.  Well, there is a big difference, the color.

➡ This one is my favorite because on my page it says I am a Pittsburgh Steelers fan and their colors are black and gold so of course this is my favorite!  This one is called R2-Pi.  Very interesting name don’t you think? 🙄

➡ The one on the right is called R2-Punk which I think is a silly name.  Would you like to be called punk?  Yeah, I didn’t think so! :P. I don’t really like the colors he picked, white and brown.  I don’t think those are really stand out colors.

➡ The one on the left is called R2-QT.  The color chosen here are girl colors so my guess is that this may be one the girls like!  I do think the heart in the bottom hole is cute!  This R2 reminds me of the part in the Yoda Chronicles when Yoda is racing to the ship to help Obi-Wan.  Yoda calls R2 as he’s passing him and R2 is with a girl R2.  The two R2s are holograming hearts at each other (or it could be just one of the droids, I forget).

➡  The other droid is not one of my favorites because it’s way to colorful!  This one definitly stands out, but I think a little too much.  I notice Han Solo in the droid, see if you can find him.  This one is called RU-Krazy.  Please don’t answer that! 😆

➡ We have one more driod which is named R2-T2 (R2-Tux2), I’m pretty sure it says that it’s a Death Star Droid.  I do like this one because as you know black is one of my colors!  I also like that they put the sith symbol for the eye or camera.


           So do you like them?  Which one’s your favorite? If you we’re going to make one which colors would you chose?  Please share your comments in the comment section below and if you would like to check out some more of these amazing R2s please visit Matt Armstongs Flickr page HERE!

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!
