Hello everybody! :classic:

Since I had the big luck to have a look in the retailer's catalogue today, I can confirm that there'll be a new theme called "NINJAGO".

I can't remember the seperate sets - but nevertheless an overview:

It is not a historical theme (like the Ninja theme one of 1999/2000).
It's some sort of mixture between card game and collectable minifigs.
If I remember right, every set contains one Ninja (there are even Ninja in violet and orange), some extra stuff and play cards.
I think there were about 9 til 18 small sets.
More I do regrettably no remember.

Let's discuss. :classic:

Oh NO!  Not the deadly ORANGE NINJA!!

Honestly though, sound like fun.  The only thing better than ninjas are collectible ninjas.

EVERYTHING IS OVERPRICED I MEAN AWESOME!!!

I am interested to find out more about this theme. Judging from your observations, it seems rather different than the ones we are familiar with. Looks quite like modern ninja in some aspects.

Honestly said I must admit that I'm really glad that this theme isn't a historical theme. If it was a historical theme, I supposably wanted to get the sets - but I still don't know how to get all the money for some of next year's City sets, possibly some Kingdoms sets and some possible SW OT sets.

Well, since these sets are very small I bet they will be in a price range from 3 up to 5 Euros. So you can actually collect them, Mr. Elijah Timms.

The minifigs seem to be exactly the same like the ones from around 2000.

The type of style in the theme sounds interesting.
Was there any toy story in the catalouge.

I can't remember some Toy Story sets. And PoP and Pirates of the Caribbean I don't remember to have seen, too. But I might even be wrong.

Wow this theme sounds very interesting, I think the name 'NinjaGo' sounds abit cheesy and Childish in my opinion

A card game, huh? Interesting. Having taken on the boardgame market last year, now TLC is going to invade the Collectible Card Game (CCG) market?

I'm envisioning these things working like the Pokemon game, where the cards include stats that you can use to battle other ninjas.

Reminds me of the game that was included within the Adventurers: Orient Expedition theme. A couple of the big sets came with a modular board, and then there were cards to go with all of the characters and vehicles. It was a neat idea, but failed in the execution. The game was just boring.

Well, this certainly sounds strange. But since Atlantis will be continuing, and we now have World Racers, there isn't really any space for another proper Action theme I suppose, so this makes sense. I'm glad that color is the only change in the minifigs since that means that they wont be some crazy anime-style characters.

When you say "other stuff" do you mean like accessories or settings? Any new pieces you could make out?

Huzzah, Ninjas!. The action themes are getting more and more exctiting!

If there was no such thing as science; you'd be right.

Oh no. So these are in the style of collectible minifigs? That's not good...
I haven't even seen a single box around here. Either way, If it does turn out like that, I hope they'll at least make them more widespread. I would rather have sets, though.

I guess Lego are truly spreading their wings into different product lines, they have sat back and watched the popularity of kid's TV shows like 'YU-GI-OH!' and 'Bakugan Battle Brawlers' which are card based games and also using either objects or creatures to do their bidding.
So it's only logical since Lego has expanded into board games (Haspro now has it's brick-built game range) to fight for every dollar in every TRU, Toyworld or Kmart, then a card/figure game would be that next try at making a dollar.
Keep on bricking ! :sweet:

Hm. This is certainly an interesting development. I was hoping for the return of Ninja sets in 2011, so I guess that I half got my wish. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

It involves the Jellybean Knights.

That's what I thought at first too, but if it's just the same old ninjas in more different colors, how bad can it be?

This is an early catalog so the design of the ninjas may still be provisional or a place holder.

I just hope there is no 'card tax' that would make the sets much more expensive than they would be without that 'feature'.

Meh. I'll reserve further judgement until I see if there are actual sets to go with these multihued ninjae.

Hallo,

Thank you so much for the big news!!
I'm really interested in this point: "It is not a historical theme (like the Ninja theme one of 1999/2000)."
So do you mean this new ninja series looks like the one released before?  


(To me, the existing ninja theme is quite a historical theme)

I think he means the 1999/2000 theme WAS a historical theme, meaning this new one will be very, very different from that one.
