According to exoforce.ru, the Garmatron will have a prison cell in the back for a minifigure, and the function of the Samurai Bike is indeed described as a "rapid-fire missile launcher", though exactly how rapid it is I don't know... I'm certainly not expecting anything quite like 7020 from a function so small and unimposing. Other than those two things, none of the functions really seem to be more than what we could have understood from the pictures we already have, but it's still nice to know that Garmatron does have more assets than those pics have really advertised.

No, the Samurai Bikes in the show each have a giant energy cannon on the back (which somewhat resemble an NXT sensor of some kind). The vehicles that shoot saw blades are completely different, as I remember it-- more like catapults than anything else. Unless there was a scene in which the bikes shot saws which I'm not remembering.

Also, yeah, I can see how the trapdoor on the Garmatron could be connected with the prison cage in the set, depending on how that ends up looking.

Okay, I suppose so, but I meant that is isn't very similar because Lloyd gets thrown out the back.
And I knew that they were different vehicles, but they are the only vehicles that ever shoot anything (ot including Garmatron).
i.e., maybe the Samurai Bikes have energy cannons, but they never shoot them, or at least very rarely.

I don't think it would have looked that good "flattened" against the minifig head anyway.

^That's what the mouthguard was for, since The Helmet of Shadows never had that in the show.

I actually get the idea that this is meant to just be Garmadon and the mouth guard was deliberately omitted in the show so Garmadon could be more expressive-- the same way that parts of the masks in the fourth BIONICLE movie were removed except in fight scenes so that the characters' mouths could be seen.

The Stone Army didn't get similar treatment because, being generic enemies, the audience is not meant to identify or sympathize with them.

I like Kai's Fire Robot a lot. Personally, this wave interests me a lot more than the Snake one.

I agree, I don't think it's even supposed to be the overlord, LEGO just thought it would add something to the set to include the mouth piece (it does!). :thumbup:

Thanks for the pictures. It only confirms my lack of interest in this theme (I've never been huge into Ninjago). Although I do really like the Kimono outfits and the stone warriors. I may have to pick them up, but the sets as is isn't really my cup of tea. I think this will be a good farewell wave for the theme though after seeing everything that has been available.

I'm not sure on this group? I love the Kimono Ninja's and some of the figs. But the sets themselves seem sort of soso. I think the only one on my must have list is the Gold Dragon? The Temple of Light just seems bleah compared to the Fire Temple set.

There are a lot of sets that will seem bleah compared to the Fire Temple set. If the Fire Temple set is your threshold for a good set your standards might be a bit high.

Overall, the Temple of Light has some interesting architecture, and is a decent likeness of the setting from the show. Also, I love how it can fold up, so it can actually resemble a 3-D structure rather than just a facade like so many 2011 sets (Spinjitzu Dojo and other "arena" sets). It can never be fully enclosed, but overall I'm impressed with its design. The only criticisms I have are that the tiny gong and mallet is a poor substitute for the epic giant bell from the show, and there is no place to "hide" the Golden Mech before it is unlocked with the elemental swords.

Someone over at Toys N Bricks has debunked the Barnes and Noble reservation prices for Ninjago:
70500 Kai's Fire Mech $9.99
70501 Warrior Bike / 70502 Cole's Earth Driller $19.99 (really good for the drill, the bike should be $15 instead)
70503 The Golden Dragon $29.99
70504 Garmatron $39.99
70505 Temple of Light $69.99
