New Zane face leaked from the summer sets. It looks amazing 

I love it! I wonder if all the ninjas will get that elemental “mask” print.

Zane's new face looks good, ice around his eyes really stands out. Love his robot faces much more than yellow heads. Ninjago movie one used in Legacy sets is so bad...

Finally, a face where he’s not angrily yelling - I’m even happier about the smile than I am about the ice (which is also really cool)

New titanium smile face is cool, but I hope someday they'll make a more.. relaxed human Zane face.

Whoa. "he's going NRG again?" was my first thought when seeing this. Also, it seems that he's retaining his pre-March of the Oni/TLMN eyebrow. 

Eh, the new 'NRG' faces never mean anything to the show. Those eyebrows are the same he's had since Sons of Garmadon in the sets.

Maybe the face has something to do with Zane being the Ice Emperor?

Yep, that is the second thing (The Ice Emperor) that came into my mind after the first. Seems to be a very high possibility. Looking forward to seeing more of that!

And yeah, I'm glad that eyebrows is still being retained as in March of the Oni, even his titanium version has the TLMN eyebrows.

And for what it's worth, the outfits the Nexo Knights wear in their battle suits are a lot LESS blatantly high-tech than their regular armor. They still have some futuristic, angular design cues and circuitry patterns just like the ordinary everyday clothing of many other Nexo Knights characters like King and Queen Halbert, but other than the helmets they appear to be a pretty ordinary, lightweight cloth material, not anything heavily armor plated.

It still, nonetheless, was more reflective of their own technology than Ninjago has been.

I don't see what purpose that technology could fulfill. You are still talking about what they can wear, right?

Not exclusively attire, just consistency in historical inspiration and/or technological consistency.

If course they should remain Ninjas, I'm just asking for their attire to complement their modern technology... 

...OR VISA VERSA.

You see, if they are instead to retain their traditional medieval garb, why not then give them technology that's as aesthetically complementary as possible? Ya know, something Clockpunk and/or DaVinci-Punk. 

Why does it even freaking matter? Snakemen, skeletons, and ghosts aren't real!

Don't change what's broken

I'm not desiring any form of realism from the theme, just a look that can be more easily pigeonholed into a particular preexisting subgenre.

And, come on, that's not a bad thing to desire. :def_shrug:

Personally, I don't have any problems with the ninjas suits design at all. They're pretty cool for what it is.

Though, I'm not sure whether would it made a mess design-wise but I think the suits just need some gold (could be tiny or significantly) in it as I've noticed that all of the ninjas' vehicles (excluding dragons) have golden parts/golden blades as part of their aesthetic. 

Another thing that I kinda wish to be brought back is Ranked Gi(s). I find stuffs like "Trainee rank - Dragon Xtreme rank - Zen Xtreme rank and it ends at Kimono" quite interesting. Like there's a reason for the Gi changes. I'm pretty fine with how it is now. Just thought that it would be cool to have this depth back again. :wink:

I would guess Hunted did touch this subject a bit. The four ninjas' gis are torn and damaged version of their S.O.G. gis while Lloyd & Nya's are gis for the resistance.

It is It's like they already have a genre they don't need to obtusely force themselves into something their not.

 

does anyone have any pictures of the new sets because people are talking about Zane's new face

I'm really curious to see new bad guys. Hopefully they will look unique since concept of "samurai-esque" faction has been done before (stone army, vermilion). Ice aspect should definitely make them more unique!

Hey now don't trash talk The Vermillion. General Machia was a cool villain with just a weak death. (JK):wink:

In a serious note though I feel the elemental aspect will really help this enemy fraction. Am I wrong or is this the first time they've really done this? A single element hoard? I mean others have done spinjitzu but that's it
