Hello everyone,

I am very pleased to present my latest reviewing adventure on this brand new LEGO Minifigures - LEGO Ninjago Movie Series which will be available worldwide in August 2017. Before I start my pictorial review, I would like to give my sincere thanks to The LEGO Group (TLG) which include the LEGO CEE and LEGO Collectable Minifigures Design Team. I have also reduced the amount of images and text in this review as well. I can't believe I had completed 24 exhaustive LEGO pictorial reviews including this current review, solely for the coverage of the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series / LEGO Minifigures Theme throughout the past seven years. Thank you to all my special people in my life for supporting in my reviewing endeavor in this LEGO CMFs journey. Most importantly, I had left out this very single important person and I was reminded. My biggest thank you to my beloved wife, Belun for supporting my reviewing work. :wub: 

Following Eurobricks tradition for all of the past Collectable Minifigures polls once more, it started with a humble beginning of Series 1 followed by Series 2 in the year 2010 and it continue to spread like wildfire with another three strong waves of minifigures craze in the year 2011, putting Series 3, Series 4 and Series 5 in an excellent harvesting year. In the year 2012, we celebrated with Series 6, Series 7 and recent Series 8. With the year 2013, we have the Series 9, Series 10 and Series 11. In the year 2014, we seen the LEGO Movie Series, The first LEGO Simpsons Series and Series 12. In the year 2015, we had the Series 13, LEGO Simpsons Series 2 and Series 14. In the year 2016, we seen the Series 15, LEGO Disney Series 1 and Series 16.  Right now in the year 2017, we have the LEGO Batman Movie Series  and Series 17 and the next poll which I would like to invite the Eurobricks Community to cast their votes is for this new LEGO Ninjago Movie Series poll statistics as well.

What could possibly lurk within these mysterious sealed packets?

The CMFs excitement has continued into the world of LEGO Ninjago
36022633105_d79ba1b536_o_d.jpg
This newest CMFs revolved around the latest LEGO Blockbuster movie - The LEGO Ninjago Movie, which is slated for a premiere release on 22 September 2017. This is also the second attempt where we see a large release of 20 unique minifigures, after LEGO Batman Movie. This particular CMFs series is also the third LEGO movies range. I suppose LEGO CMFs and LEGO movies are an ideal partnership to expand the scope of these awesome minifigures without the need of sets release. I am glad to see this release and fans of this particular product range, are simply no stranger to many of these existing characters. The CMFs characters in this series focused mainly on the movie content. I can certainly assure you that this review is spoilers-free and the review will contain LEGO related content. So, what are you waiting for? Can't wait to find out more details on these lovely minifigures? Some lucky folks in Billund have discovered it in the BIG Shop in LEGOLAND, while some of our US friends are also able to see them on the store shelves.

IMPORTANT: Please note that the naming for all 20 minifigures, where applicable, that I have use for this review are official TLG minifigures naming for the LEGO Minifigures - LEGO Ninjago Movie Series. 

Front view comparison with NInjago Movie Series and together with all available LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 1 to 17, LEGO Movie, Simpsons 1 and 2, Disney Series 1 and LEGO Team GB packets, DFB Series and Batman Movie Series
36022627125_87c31ed1e1_o_d.jpg
I have placed all 25 different minifigures packets including the LEGO Team GB and the LEGO DFB Football packets as part of my overall comparison. From the aerial image, you can see an impressive transformation of LEGO CMFs Series 1 to the recent LEGO Batman Movie Series and now to the current LEGO Ninjago Movie Series. It is wonderful to see the entire range of CMFs assorted packet designs at one glance. The LEGO Minifigures Theme continued and remained as a very strong contender in the TLG product range since 2010 with a total of 25 different releases including regional exclusives. 

Take a closer look at the following images. This is the front view of the LEGO Ninjago Movie Series packet, while this shows the back view of it. This is an image that shows the back view comparison for all of these packets.

Simple reminder to my regular CMFs readers. If you are intending to collect the precious and hard-to-find minifigures, hone your skills for the touch and feel method. This is an important skill set in order to locate the minifigures that you want without spending too much money by randomly acquire them, especially so when you are intending to buy large quantities. Your sole mission is to memorise and remember the minifigures assortments for each of the specialised designs. Isolate and identify the most unique accessory or accessories for the particular minifigure. From there, eliminate the torso, head and legs and feel for the other parts. The sole disadvantage of this method is that much time would be wasted if the minifigures that you are looking for have been taken from the box. You might also end up with sore numb thumbs after feeling them.

1) Kai Kendo
36022620995_dea85541a9_o_d.jpg
Without further ado, let's bring out the first character from the LEGO Ninjago Movie Series. Meet the fiery firing Ninja, Kai. He wield the fire element and part of his spinjitzu training include kendo. He is a particularly nice looking character, which is fitting to be modify into a classic samurai with his traditional samurai armour and with a little twist to his headgear. His facial appearance showed his determination and hardship in his training. These are the past LEGO variants of Kai since 2011. 


Parts assortment
35183041294_738dd23f39_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are above average. There is an extra headpiece, where Kai can put on the kendo helmet. The black samurai armour is my favourite part and I hope this can be made easily available. The brown rods/sticks are common parts. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view

2) Spinjitzu Training Nya
35889060071_db2a7956a1_o_d.jpg
Next we have Nya, who is Kai's sister. She is currently in her spinjitzu training outfit. She was also earlier known as Samurai X and later on found an affinity in spinjitzu. She currently wield the water element. She is also the only female member among the gifted ninja. This minifigure doesn't quite appeal to me as compared to Kai Kendo. I did wish she can be equipped with some samurai gears. These are the past Nya minifigure designs since the inception of Samurai X. 


Parts assortment
36022618985_76364a4225_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are average, with the inclusion of two wooden katanas for training. The white traditional grab is also quite nice to modify around. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view

3) Lloyd
35889059271_49a625b55d_o_d.jpg
The next character is the green Ninja, Lloyd. He used to be the big bad guy, following in his father's footsteps. Things changed for the better and Lloyd now fights for the safety of Ninjago City. He wield the rare energy element. This is one of my favourite minifigure in this series. Getting a green ninja plus tons of goodies in this packet, is just too tempting for me. These are the past Lloyd minifigure designs in his green ninja outfits.


Parts assortment
35980982946_0a393d02b4_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are excellent. You get the brand new weapon, dadao and the knob beneath it. It has a very good grip to it, unlike the traditional LEGO scimitar. The 2x4 printed blueprint of the mechanical dragon is just brilliant. This is also the first time where the traditional ninja hood is split between top and bottom. Not to forget, the extra hairpiece for Lloyd in his finest appearance. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view

4) Master Wu
35212037093_50510da1ee_o_d.jpg
Master Wu or previously known as Sensei Wu. He is the teacher for these gifted ninja. His minifigure design is almost identical with his past set appearances. Well, I am not exactly sure why the close association of corn flakes with Master Wu. Guess, we will know more about this comedic feature when the movie is release. These are the past Sensei Wu minifigure variants from earlier seasons. 


Parts assortment
35980981326_0c1a24ffb3_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are average other than the white skirting robe and the delicious printed corn flakes box which is a huge thumbs up. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view.

5) Garmadon
35212035873_2f356ea97f_o_d.jpg
The evil Garmadon was the First Spinjitzu Master's firstborn son, Wu's older brother, Misako's late husband, and Lloyd's father. In his youth, he was bitten by The Great Devourer and infected with evil. He is the main antagonist throughout the cartoon series. I suspect in this upcoming LEGO Ninjago Movie, he will continue to play his villainy role. These are the past minifigure designs of Garmadon. I think this is quite a nice taunting character and I am particularly fond of his new round brim straw hat. That will certainly be a very useful accessory. 


Parts assortment
35980978946_b8967a3c2e_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are average. I think the biggest attraction for me, is the round brim straw hat. The weapon is quite average and simple looking. Do note that the bottom torso is a regular torso, whereas the upper torso is a much smaller sizing. It can't be fit as a regular torso. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of side and back view.

6) Jay Walker
36022618715_50dfec5288_o_d.jpg
The next Ninjago character is the hyper Jay Walker. He is the blue ninja and wield the element of lighting. It is nice to see a different and relaxing side of Jay in his vacation scenic outfit. His attire is very suitable for a typical winter sonata drama scene with his long orange scarf. I think the usage of promulgating the selfie stick in a LEGO environment is really funny. I suppose is what you call keeping up with the world. These are the past Jay minifigure designs variants


Parts assortment
35889053391_bffe16c0cb_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are slightly above average. I like his warm fuzzy outfit with his iconic blue look. The selfie stick is quite simple and easy to replicate with your LEGO spare parts. The mobile phone with Jay face on the selfie is brilliant. You could probably infer that this is quite a modern looking smartphone right in our pocket. The orange long scarf is really nicely captured and I hope to see them in more common places. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of side and back view.

7) Lloyd Garmadon
35980976726_0dff79b7b3_o_d.jpg
I am quite surprised to see Lloyd has another design variant in this movie series. In this case, this minifigure is distinguished as Lloyd Garmadon. I love this minifgure design very much and the more youthful teenager look with a tint of his signature green. I am actually pleased to see this minifigure and it somehow remind me of a pop star, but the name kind of evade me. 

Parts assortment
35889051821_ea0cd85544_o_d.jpg

The parts assortment are above average. I love the kitchen utensils very much. The spoon and the lovely porcelain bowl are just splendid. I can just easily recognise the drawing in my own kitchen. The hood is a new design and it is not completely covered plus his hair fringe on the front. This is quite a good improvement unlike the traditional hood which you could normally see them in Obi Wan Kenobi - Star Wars. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of side and back view.

8) Cole
35889049721_b6d7f3c9b3_o_d.jpg
Cole is the black ninja and wield the earth element. I didn't know he is into music and his attire is just so sports looking. I haven't figure out the meaning or translation for Ninjago wordings yet. I know Brickset has recently shared a very interesting article on the language of Ninjago. Do take a look. Other than that, I think this is yet a nice generic City minifigure to be added. These are his other minifigure designs in the earlier sets. 


Parts assortment
35889049241_1a6efdc96f_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are average. I am extremely fond of the new stereo player. This is so awesome when you compared with the first Series 3 - Rapper where it used a cassette tape. In this latest stereo player, you can place a digital music player and sync for added boosters. The expression and hairstyle are also equally good. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of side and back view.

9) Misako
35889044581_87d8c22711_o_d.jpg
I am very confident that this Misako minifigure is definitely a much younger version of her. There must be a logical explanation with the elder looking, Misako. I suppose the movie could explain it all or avid LEGO Ninjago fans could already have the answer. This minifigure is pretty and lovely looking and it has a detailed badge which showed her name or nickname as 'Koko'. I wonder what's her occupation or role in this movie. So far, we have only seen her other variant in the 70751 Temple of Airjitzu


Parts assortment
35851432882_fd0b96cb98_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are average. The handbag accessory is certainly useful to add into the wide range of female minifigure accessories. The bundled hair is also tied up nicely and I wonder if she had actually used a chopstick to wind and fix her hair up. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of side and back view.

10) Zane
35851429192_9f101cff69_o_d.jpg
Here comes the cyborg white ninja, Zane who wield the ice element. Well, he is not in his typical ninja outfit but rather in his self exploration mode. This time, Zane had suited up for his hiking attire. This is quite a simple minifigure and I find the lack of accessory rather disturbing. This is the second time we had seen a similar hiker design and I would expect to see a compass or map or even some sort of food to ease his hunger pans. A little tweak with the head and you will get another regular City hiker with the love of cosmos aliens. I am not quite fond of this minifigure and I would prefer to choose any of his past minifigure variants


Parts assortment
35851428612_329f1075e8_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are below average. You only get a new different colour variant for the backpack. I really wish there are more accessories for this minifigure. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view.

11) Shark Army General #1
35212014543_87c49700af_o_d.jpg
This is the first new evil henchman introduction. I suppose Garmadon had enlisted the mighty Shark Army in the invasion of Ninjago City. This female elitist looking with the war medals on her uniform, you could easily guess she is the army general in her demeaning appearance. She hold a strawberry smoothie in favour of tactical war plans. Guess this is what I called 'play it cool'. She is actually quite a sweet minifigure and what is with the reference of #1. Are there many other army generals in this movie? 


Parts assortment
35633164590_efef38bdfb_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are slightly above average. You get a new extra smoothie flavour. There is a nice plastic firm cape of the upper and lower layer which kind of illustrates like aqua fins or aerial dynamic flaps. The hairstyle can be adjusted even though I still prefer the hairstyle to be straight unlike the one in the official leaflet. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of side and back view.

12) Shark Army Octopus
35889026101_f7ac6f470b_o_d.jpg
The next soldier type is the Octopus within the Shark Army Ranks. This minifigure is very lovely and cute. Cute is hardly a word for me to describe a bad guy. The octopus headpiece really got into me and is very iconic to this character and other characters within the Shark Army. I would imagine coming out of the sea and start *pew pew* at the random citizens in Ninjago City. This is also the first CMFs character to ever equip with a stud gun shooter. 


Parts assortment
35212005233_36db37e108_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are average. There is a fish which act like a baton and a stud gun shooter. The aquatic oxygen chamber at the rear and the octopus helmet can actually fit nicely on one another. This minifigure is actually human soldier and it used the sea creature nature as a form of attack. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view.

13) Shark Army Angler
35980937676_5abb2ee050_o_d.jpg
The next minifigure in line, is the Shark Army Angler. The Angler is quite a dangerous hunter fish and I find it a surprise that it was a female soldier behind the angler mask. She used the extended fish mace to whack the enemies. Do note that the plastic is quite firm and a little bit sticky for the angler helmet. The material is hard plastic. 


Parts assortment
35851403962_a21abf0080_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are average. You get more fish and is probably due to an upcoming LEGO Ideas set like the 21310 Old Fishing Store. This minifigure also used the same mace as the Frightening Knight in Series 15 and there is a new oxygen tank design for the angler. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view.

14) Shark Army Great White
35183059814_3a695e4bfb_o_d.jpg
The last in line for the Shark Army is actually the fierce-some Great White Shark. He act like the flamethrower of the army battalion and like to set things ablaze through his fish torch. He has quite a nasty looking appearance. The battery on his oxygen tank seems rather low battery, and I wanted if it meant anything because his other soldiers companions are having a healthy battery life. 


Parts assortment
36022617675_41c0de975d_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are average. You get a black fish with flame and an oxygen tank. I noticed his torso is somehow similar to the Army General #1 and I wonder if he was kicked out of the army or somehow? You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of front, side and back view.

15) Flashback Garmadon
35851401922_2874be0009_o_d.jpg
Well, let's see the friendly daddy appearance of Garmadon. This must be a flashback of Garmadon memories where he aim to be a good father to Lloyd. This is not exactly his correct outer appearance but I suppose is ok for him to dream. He bring his camera and a photo which somehow very sure remind me of Garmadon volcanic lair. This design is quite a fatherly looking when he wear the brown polo tee and his long black tie. 


Parts assortment
35851401652_b540cb9ffd_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are average. The camera is pretty standard and the attire is quite useful to modify for other city purpose. I think the 2x2 printed tile is a very good plus point in this design but the rest of it are not very eye-catching to me. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of side and back view.


I am leaving here for good
35851400182_d703a69cd7_o_d.jpg


16) Volcano Garmadon
35633194230_2f1e1661d4_o_d.jpg
This is the last variant of Garmadon. As you can see, Garmadon is wearing his favourite pyjamas attire with his volcano lair as the main prints. He look like he is ready to have his nice supper or perhaps wanting to feed someone. This is quite a nice looking variant but isn't so impressive other than his equipped accessories which I am interested in. 

 

Parts assortment
35211981343_06836a3aed_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are slightly above average. The new black samurai helmet is what I am eyeing for, to modify my samurai armies. On top of that, you get a new green porcelain bowl and spoon for your kitchen stuff. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of side and back view.

17) Gong & Guitar Rocker
35211980053_593f095d4e_o_d.jpg
The Gong & Guitar Rocker is the pinnacle of Ninjago City music festival. It is nice to see more new variants of LEGO musicians. I am sure fans of guitar collectors would love to get hold of this new design. He certainly have the punk rocker look with a little bit of Asian flavour. It is great to amass more of these talented folks together. 

 

Parts assortment
35211979263_7c0bcb51ae_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are average. The red electric guitar could be a bonus to collectors who are into LEGO electric guitars. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of side and back view. This is the only minifigure in this series with an alternate facial expression.

36022617365_d587d6eb55_o_d.jpg
This lady is a GPL Tech, which I assume is some technical wizard and expert in computing. I think she work in a research firm or something which will ensure the proper protection of cyber security of Ninjago City. I suppose her work is quite tough and long hours on computing which resulted in her thick glasses. She is also a huge fan of Batman. 

 

Parts assortment

The parts assortment are average. It include the regular laptop computer and red mug. You can take a closer look at the opened laptop computer. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of side and back view.

19) Sushi Chef
35211975653_d8723ae6e0_o_d.jpg
The Sushi Chef is the latest food profession, being made available to Ninjago City. It offer an opportunity for the minifigures to enjoy exotic Japanese cuisine. The minifigure is pretty accurate in terms of the design and he looks real proficient is preparing the sashmi maki roll. 

 

Parts assortment

The parts assortment are average. The 1x1 printed circular tiles are very nice and those are just the sushi bites which we want to serve to the City minifigures. The knife chopper is the same as the butcher. I am very pleased to see You can also take a closer look at the sushi roll. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of side and back view.

 

Wow, you are a sushi chef

20) N-POP Girl
35980911076_685e48e86d_o_d.jpg
This is the last minifigure and the very minifigure which will be the instant popular hit. The N-POP Girl is very colourful like a rainbow. Similar to J-POP (Japanese Pop) and K-POP (Korean Pop), I would safely assume N-POP referred to as Ninjago Pop, This is just going to be a sensational hit with the new star in the limelight. Furthermore, the close association simply just make the whole cute factor up one notch. This is definitely one of my top 3 favourite minifigures in this series. 

 

Parts assortment
35980910586_1b3e6a5cc3_o_d.jpg
The parts assortment are excellent. You get a nice dual coloured of pastel blue and pink. The ballerina are also very colourful accompanied with her whole outfit. The pink teddy bear is simply brilliant and you get an additional variant of the teddy bear. The uni-kitty design on her dress simply make this whole minifigure splendid. You can view more of the details from the all rounded view inclusive of side and back view.

 

Aren't you the popular N-POP star?

General Statistics for 71019 LEGO Minifigures - LEGO Ninjago Movie Series
36022632175_51c24b493a_o_d.jpg
Below is the combination which I have received from my box,

3 Kai Kendo(s)
3 Spinjitzu Training Nya(s)
3 Lloyd(s)
3 Master Wu(s)
3 Garmadon(s)
3 Jay Walker(s)
3 Lloyd Garmadon(s)
3 Cole(s)
3 Misako(s)
3 Zane(s)
3 Shark Army General #1(s)
3 Shark Army Octopus(s)
3 Shark Army Angler(s)
3 Shark Army Great White(s)
3 Flashback Garmadon(s)
3 Volcano Garmadon(s)
3 Gong & Guitar Rocker(s)
3 GPL Tech(s)
3 Sushi Chef(s)
3 N-POP Girl(s)

Based on the above distribution, I have managed to achieve three full complete sets of 20 one-of-a kind minifigures each. This is the second time in LEGO CMFs history, where three full complete sets and nil spares can be achieved. This will make many collectors very happy, by simply buying a mint box and shared among your friends and families. There is nothing much to analysis since all of the minifigures are equally distributed. We shall see which minifigure will be the most popular and hard-to-find once it is out in the public.  It's very hard to predict, but my only guess is N-POP Girl and just maybe Lloyd. I am not sure what other minifigures could be hardly sought after. 


The LEGO Minifigures - LEGO Ninjago Movie Series will be launching on the 1st August 2017 (worldwide)
35211970703_11039d3847_o_d.jpg
To conclude, the LEGO Ninjago Movie Series has continued to expand on the good track record of CMFs by populating more diversifying minifigures in the LEGO universe. With this wide variations, you can increase the minifigures in your LEGO City or Ninja Empire. It always excite me to see a brand new box of wild CMFs ideas and even though this is not the original CMFs tradition. This is still equally important to see a LEGO blockbuster movie being made into a CMFs and for the record, this is the third attempt. I am fond of non licensed CMFs and LEGO Ninjago Movie Series does not count as licensed because it contain original ideas from TLG. The LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series or known as LEGO Minifigures Theme shall always be a rare commanding class of their own, which distinguish themselves from regular LEGO Theme and special releases. It has been a very long standing tradition and yet they are able to retain the charm and excitement, until today. Henceforth, let's wait for the official release of the movies and see if the Ninjago CMFs have gotten you hype up. 

Update: I just went to see the latest LEGO Ninjago Movie sets and I did not expect to see Lloyd and Garmadon being so commonly available in those sets with minimum variants. I always feel CMFs should be unique even though the character is rehash. That add quite abit of disappointment for me and I am not very happy about it. Even though TLG like to give others an opportunity to own more of these characters but I don't find there is a great need to just replicate it to make it up for the 20. 

Now with a total of 379 minifigures released for the entire Series 1 to 17, the LEGO Movie Series, LEGO Simpsons Series 1 to 2, Disney LEGO Minifigures, LEGO Batman Movie series and the current LEGO Ninjago Movie, not including Mr. Gold which unfortunately I do not have the blessings or lucky stars to own it till this date, and the special exclusive Toy Soldier and Zombie Skateboarder minifigures that can only be obtained through The Minifigures Character Encyclopedia books respectively. At such accelerated releasing rate, I wonder if anyone can keep up with the display shelving area as we factor to accommodate space for future expansion. For myself, I don't have the space to display all of them anymore until much further notice. Meanwhile, I really wonder what exciting new series will TLG have for us. Only time will tell and let's be patient about it. I am confident that it will be worth the wait as always.

Summary review
Playability: 8/10 (New Ninjago minifigure designs that can be integrated across existing Ninjago themes or other relevant themes.)
Design: 9/10 (Great detailed printing on different arms and legs with plentiful new accessories including dadao, pink teddy bear, corn flakes, etc.)
Price: 6/10 (Pricing notch went down for my case due to the increase of SRP to SGD$6.50.)
Overall: 7.6/10 (Ready yourself for this new Ninjago Movie Series and start a new wave of collecting and hunting.)

I gave it a "4" based on my Review Score Card. :wink: What about yours?

I hope everyone of you enjoyed reading this simple review of mine. Comments and Criticisms are welcomed.

Great review from the master of all CMF reviews. :thumbup: 

N-Pop Girl really pops out as the most interesting minifigure here. She also looks like a chewable candy. But I like Jay the most. 

@WhiteFang can I request those sea creature army with Orca's headpiece please?

Thanks makoy. Can I know which sea creature could you like the Orca to be equip with? Great White? Do note that the oxygen chamber can't be used for that.

Ooops, wrong choice of words. I was not referring to the headpiece. I meant the actual minifig head from Orca.  I'd like to see all the creatures with that silly looking mouth.

No problem, I can work on that. I wonder why there are people so interested in the Orca headpiece.

Yes! I was looking forward to your review! Thanks a lot. 

While i like N-pop girl the best as minifigure, i will buy some of these just for their parts. @WhiteFang would you be so kind to take a picture of the octopus headpiece  on a normal minifig without the oxygentank? I'd like to know how that looks

Great review. I'm really looking forward to this CMF series, which I did not expect.

Does anyone know if anyone with access to the Ninjago minifigs has made a list of the design numbers printed on the new elements?

Thanks for the review, White Fang! Area Target really broke street date, so I've got half the series already. It really is full of great pieces.

Not that I've seen. I could get them for the ten I have if you really want.

Good review. One minor quibble—you seem to have attached the staff head for the Garmadon figure upside-down in all of your pictures. The wider end should be at the top.

Thanks for the review!  In depth as always.

Interesting how the Great White has separate tanks, unlike the other villains.  Also, it's a shame they didn't continue the flower printing on Misako to her back.

Could you do a shot of the tattoo on the Gong & Guitar Rocker?  That was a detail I didn't really get a good look at.

Oh my.... I did not even realised that is a mistake, until you point out. My bad.

It should be ok. Give me awhile to prepare another shooting as I am away for awhile.

Looks pretty much the same. The octopus doesn't actually sit down on the collar.

I managed to get a free time to do these few images, minus the complete teddy bears' shot.

I like the effect of Orca's head on the Shark Army Angler. It makes the stare more disturbing.

I'm way more excited for this series than I thought I'd be when it was first announced. There are some really great new headgear and torsos here, and accessories! Thank you for the wonderful and detailed review, WhiteFang :wub:

Since it has not been mentioned yet, I think the "printing" on Cole's shirt is spouse to be AC-DC

Yes, it says AC/DC in the Ninjago alphabet. :wink: It was covered in another thread at one point.

Agree

Those are my thoughts as well

The CMFs are supposed to be unique.... not the 2319287th version of a character. 

I understand there must be some cost savers, but here they took it to eleven. I expected to see more characters like the N-Pop Girl and the Sushi Chef

******

Thanks for the review

my favs are Sushi Chef and N-Pop Girl. Maybe I'll get the Rocker Guy but that's it. 

Most of these will make sense only after watching the movie

These versions of Cole and Nya are just way too bland to be CMFs

Thanks @WhiteFang and @K_Tiger! It does even look good without the armour. Great! Good combination on a suit by the way

 

It even fits on Axl from Nexo Knights if you're willing to stretch it a little. Might come in handy if they ever do that big torso in another color down the road.

Thanks for the review, I appreciate the work you do for all of us!

This series really doesn't do much for me. I was hoping through the review that some fig or another might spark my interest, but most of them didn't--not at $4 a pop, anyway. The only ones I would want are Misako, General #1, Anglerfish, and the Rocker. I might pick up a Lloyd G., too. But if I never got around to picking up any of those I wouldn't feel too bad. Well, except the General #1, that's probably one I will track down, since every part there can be repurposed.
