LEGO Ninjago Movie: 13 tie-in playsets and vehicles plus a brand new minifigure series are now available
LEGO has just dropped a plethora of brand new sets to support their upcoming film The LEGO Ninjago movie, and while I’m no Ninjago fan I have to admit that I’m in love with the general aquatic and east Asian themes present in these new releases.
Of note for a lot of people will be the introduction of a brand new collectible minifigure series featuring 20 limited-edition minifigures. While some of the figures are a tad basic this series sports an impressive array of interesting accessories and headwear. Most notable (in my opinion) are the Shark Army soldiers with their aquatic helms and the pastel prismatic N-POP Girl.
There’s pretty much something for everyone in this wave of sets, you’ve got mechs including one inspired by a Chinese dragon in a beautiful shade of green, there’ the terrific aquatic themed vehicles for the Shark Army (my personal favourites) and to top it all of there’s also the highly detailed Destiny’s Bounty set, an impressive Asian inspired wooden boat.
The Ninjago City Chase set also offers unprecedented value for money with 5 minifigures, a small vehicle and accessories for just £14.99, this would make for a perfect pocket money treat for the kids or yourself.
You can find details for the 13 new sets and the collectible minifigure series below:
