Yeah. It's the one I had previously thought was the Garmatron, which the Ninja hijacked to rescue Zane in "Island of Darkness". It's perhaps most noticeable in "The Last Hope" when the Stone Army is showing Garmadon all the new vehicles they've constructed.

The designs of these vehicles make me wonder if they might be based on sketch models that never became sets, though at the same time it's always a possibility that they're outfitted with recognizable LEGO parts just so that they give that impression. Might be a good thing to ask Nabii once all is said and done.

I agree.
Except I think that evil Nya (along with all the other evil people) were not very cool.

I doubt LEGO would make a new mini figure just for an exclusive set, though those would be cool.

Well, LEGO has made new minifigures for some exclusives in the past. Not to mention that it´s hypothetical anyway.

I don't think that counts, since we're talking retailer exclusives (and all sorts of places stock Character Encyclopedias). But there are tons of examples of store-exclusive sets with unique minifigs. In licensed themes, just this year, there's 6857, 6873, 9476, 9494, 9495, and 9525. But even non-licensed themes have them: 9465 and 5888 are two examples from this year.

Still, I wouldn't hold out for a Dareth figure. In exclusives, awesomeness is a big selling feature. Regardless of his role in the Ninjago series finale (which I haven't yet seen), Dareth's still essentially a joke character. If we did get any surprise figs at this point, we'd be much more likely to see some incarnation of the Overlord, or someone else vitally important to the story who would really move sets off shelves.

So, in order from likeliest to least likely, exclusive figs would be:
1. Overlord-Garmadon
2. Evil Nya
3. Dareth

Perhaps the best current example re new figures in exclusive D2C sets. http://www.brickset....il/?Set=10228-1 The Butler and the Chef are new figs for that set. So they do do it. (I think the Death Star set has a few exclusive figs as well.)

I don't think we'll get an exclusive D2C set. If anything, we might get another book. I hope the figure will be Evil Nya.

I think there is a reason why the Helmet of Shadows has the mouth guard... so I think 1. is  probably already out...

You´re right Penkid. Number 1 should be Misako, as she appears in more episodes than any of the other ones (although Dareth is the runner up in this one).

We could really use "like" buttons like the Brickset forum uses, so we don't have to go all "Agreed!" unless one is truly so compelled.

I'm now really exited to see the head on the Shadow Helmet Garmadon. I wonder if it will truly be Garmalord.

Yeah, and since Garmalord really doesn't last for long, I don't see why LEGO would go through all that trouble to make one.

If you're judging only by who appears in the most episodes, then the Postman would be a shoo-in for a minifigure version. With that said, I agree that Dareth is pretty much a joke character and not a likely candidate to appear in a set.

With that said, I think the chances of a D2C set are fairly slim. Those aren't exactly normal for LEGO's play themes, and from what I've heard it was quite unexpected that the Monster Fighters theme ended up getting a D2C set (the Haunted House was not originally designed to function as one as I understand it, but it was so well-liked that Adam Grabowski was encouraged to refine it into a set for a D2C release).

Who ever said it had to be D2C? Just an exclusive would be good enough.

OK, I get it now. Faefrost's post above had me confused. A store exclusive is a much more likely possibility, though I'm not really counting on it since there weren't any for 2012.
