    LEGO Ninjago 2018

    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.
  5. 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.

    Zane has also leaked, and he too looks very good. He has an interesting combination of his quiver and the Mr. E armour piece which go together surprisingly well.

    It's on now until the 3rd of May. Got mine today along with the Killow Vs Samurai X set (which you can currently get double VIP points on).
  10. This season has been decent so far, I did have a problem with the most recent episode though:

    I think that might be incorrect, as you can find Lego on the floor plan for the fair. Besides, it would be odd for them not to show sets at an event like toy fair.

    Indeed, probably didn't help that Jang built the stud shooters upside down though. My problem with the flyer is that it is too flat on the sides. While it is possible for certain sets to excel at both looking good and having good play features, the Rolling Arsenal definitely leans towards play rather than looks. It looks fine in its default form, but starts to look worse as the side panels extend and the mini vehicles are removed.

    "FRED" could also be a reference to this, which is also quite obscure. Although, I doubt many people would know that Cesar and Berserker are computer viruses without having to google them first like I've also had to do. It's always fun to try and decode these references though.

    Here's a link to the pictures of Axl's vehicle from the Lego Life magazine. Funny you should mention this, because it looks like Axl will get a new face print next year (see the pictures I linked above), so I hope the other knights will receive an update too.

    Just got hold of the UK Lego Life magazine which contains an image of Axl's Rolling Arsenal, will try to upload an image soon, if someone hasn't already.
