  1. I don't think I have commented in this topic before, but I'd just like to say that the new Sandman minifigure looks amazing. Great reuse of the Nexo Knights Rogul leg piece, never thought we'd see it used outside of that theme.

    The new designs look decent, perhaps a little simplistic, but I do like how they seem to combine design elements from the DX and rebooted suits. I'm not really a fan of Nya's colours going back to dark red since it's not one that is associated with water. Hopefully it's just for this one wave, since I'm pretty sure that these sets will have no relevance to the current story, and they switch back to gunmetal for subsequent releases.

    I suspect Penkid is right. This concept art for the show shows the mech being about three minifigures or so tall (about 11cm). Pixal's mech from this year is a little taller, being 4 minifigs (just over 15cm) tall, up to the top of her helmet. 150 pieces would make the new mech smaller than Pixal's mech (around 200 pieces) so it may well end up being a show accurate size.

    Wherever it was from, does that mean that there is no icemobile set at all or might it have a different set number?

    Wasn't 70665 supposed to be Zane's Icemobile according to Brickseek?

    Thoughts and observations on the leaks: Nya is absent from the spinners again, and is also the only one of the six main ninja to not get a vehicle or dragon this wave, which I find disappointing. Overall, I think that the choices of sets for the wave is decent on the whole, but I could do with fewer ninja vehicles. I look forward to seeing how the originals can be improved upon using modern pieces though. Fire Temple is the only set from the pilots, but is thankfully the biggest. I hope they are able to make a new Samukai minifig this time around (my original has unfortunately not aged well and much of the print has worn away over time). Four sets from the Serpentine season, perhaps each one will include a couple of sepentine from a single tribe so all four tribes would get representation in the wave (Pythor should be thrown in there somewhere for good measure too). Still disappointed by the apparent lack of more Season 9 sets, since there was a number of things that appeared in the season that haven't made it into sets yet. Since it appears that these re-releases don't tie into the current story, I wonder when the sets for the special event and the following 2019 season will be released. Is there a possibility of more than the usual two waves of sets being released this year? That's a cool idea, I'm imagining a smaller mech built using mixel joints instead of the larger ball joints. I hope they continue to make Ninjago modulars under the regular Ninjago line from now on. A set every two years or so would be brilliant (I doubt they'd be able to manage one per year).

    Lego AL 2019

    Since the set numbers start with "41", I believe that means that this will be a minidoll theme, and therefore the replacement for Elves (since it seems unlikely that it will continue into 2019). As for what "AL" stands for, could it just be "Action License" or something like that?
  8. Incorrect. Tommy Andreasen clarified on twitter that the 4 episodes have a combined runtime of 88 minutes, which makes each one the usual 22 mins. He has also said that he doesn't consider this special event a season. As for the rest of next years content, to make it to six hours, there must have to be at least 13 more episodes. I think that the most likely scenario is that the next season will be longer than the usual ten episodes.

    This actually sounds quite plausible. I think that it is also worth mentioning that neither Chima or Nexo Knights launched in the same year as the release of a Lego movie. It could be Lego's intention to make sure the launch of a new theme isn't overshadowed not only by Ninjago, but also by the Lego Movie 2 by putting the next Ninjago season and accompanying sets on hold until the second half of the year. Regarding this rumor as a whole, I believe that if the Ninjago designers want to make the most of this opportunity, they would not just revamp some old sets, but also incorporate some vehicles and locations from earlier seasons that didn't appear as sets such as those other two Stone Warrior vehicles or the Overlord dragon. I think that Lego has gotten better at keeping things under wraps recently. I think the first we could hear about such a theme is from a leak of a retailer catalog. Last year, the 2018 1st half catalog leaked out at the end of August so it may not be too long until we hear something.

    The rumor of re-releases sounds a bit dubious to me, the only way I see it working is if the sets are updated and modernised. I also don't see the logic in releasing more dragon sets after the three dragons that were part of the Hunted wave, since all those sets will still be on store shelves by the time January rolls around. It doesn't make sense to have so many similar products all available at once.

    Checked Lego's image cache today and all of the new sets have been added. I also tried other set numbers to see if there were indeed any more sets that we hadn't seen yet. Alas, there aren't. I for one am both surprised and disappointed. Since Ninjago has consistently gotten 3 retail exclusive sets every summer, I was expecting there would be more to this wave, especially considering the other vehicles and dragons seen in the season 9 trailer. On the whole, I think that this wave is kind of bland. The individual sets are mostly good, but as a completed wave, it feels as though there isn't really enough of anything compared to how previous waves have been. Most disappointing for me is that I think that the missing things from the trailer could be covered in just two sets. I hope that the plethora of small spinner sets this year isn't the reason why Lego couldn't manage one or two more actual boxed sets. Speaking of which, do we know what happened to the Nya Dragon Master set?

    A very good trailer indeed. I do wonder if there are any more retailer exclusive sets for the summer wave since there seems to be a good few things in the trailer that we haven't seen in sets yet. Not only is there an ice dragon, but a white and gold dragon (presumably for Wu) as well. Also in the trailer are another land-based Dragon Hunter vehicle and some sort of tank most likely piloted by Nya.
  13. That's not another Dieselnaut, It looks to be a different vehicle that doesn't appear in any of the sets... that we know of, at least.

    Although it's nice to get the belt piece in a new colour, I don't think it goes with the rest of the outfit, so I'll probably leave it off when I get the set. Another adjustment I would make is to give her a mask. I think a black half mask should work fine, got plenty of those spare. Other than that, the figure looks good, happy to see Skylor return. Another tid-bit of news. The description for the Ninjago City Docks lists some of the minifigures included; along with Lloyd and Garmadon, Dareth and Mystake are also in the set. Dareth's Dojo and Mystake's tea shop are said to be part of the build as well.

    Lloyd and Nya will also be in the set if nothing has been changed from what we see in the preliminary image from the catalog. So while it's not a set with all female characters, 4/5 is still a sizable milestone in my opinion.
