  1. The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)

    It won't launch at all in China? That seems like an odd decision...
  2. The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)

    Simon Lucas shared something very interesting on Twitter: , it's some very exclusive minifigs :D
  3. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    Just saw it and it's a shame they changed the color scheme so drastically. Also, to me it seems like the mask is actually gun metal gray and not black, like in the movie - maybe an homage to Samurai X?
  4. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    So far I'm not liking the new gi, they look like they have far fewer details when compared to HoT ones. On the other hand, those villains look awesome! The only thing I dislike about them is the fact kabuki masks have to be used with bike helmets. I've hoped they would be made like the mask of the tiki warrior.
  5. The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)

    It'll get better, the movie is not yet out in all markets. There's still a good chunk of Europe (France, Italy, UK etc), and I'm not even sure the movie is out in China. If not it could have a significant impact on box office numbers. Jackie Chan is huge in China.

    Amazing stuff! I'll make sure to pick up the book as soon as I can!
  7. The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)

    I'd have to agree with you on this one. It really felt like a hotpot of ideas that were mixed in in an unnatural way. The final act was indeed, the messiest one. To me, TLNM, was a typical Holywood superhero/villain origin story and it completely missed the point of it being a LEGO movie, as well as it being a Ninjago movie. Basically, this move didn't have to be made out of bricks, nor include any ninja and it would still be the same. There are no builders, nor is there any kind of reshaping of the world to better fit the situation. A huge missed opportunity. There is zero background on the world (where did the mechs come from?), what's up with the locations outside of Ninjago City? And most importantly, where is everything that made Ninjago what it is? Where are the trivial things, like Spinjitzu, elemental powers, dragons etc etc? Where is the deeper stuff? Like team dynamics, the struggle with the personal vision of oneself and mission (of all the characters), relationships between all the ninja and similar?
  8. The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)

    Finally saw the Movie. I have to say I expected more Ninjago in it. It's not that I didn't like it but, for me, it didn't have the heart and soul of the franchise.

    If anyone is interested in seeing on how Ninjago is represented in the LEGO House: https://bricksamurai.com/lego-house-ninjago-fans-perspective/ It's a brief description of my experiences there, as a Ninjago fan.
  10. The History Of Ninjago (Video)

    I love what you did here! It's a brilliant idea and I hope you continue doing it. Just like Littleworlds I was surprised not to see more of the TV show mentioned which is both good and bad in my opinion. It kept the video short and to the point but kept out some important details. Here are the things I missed from the video: No mentions of elemental powers No mentions of introduction of Nya as a ninja No Dragons mentioned (molded vs brickbuilt heads) No villains introduced or explained Day of the Departed skipped No parallels between the show and the sets No mentions of games I'm a huge Ninjago fan so don't take these to heart too much : ) The video is great, production is very good and you will only get better with time!
  11. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    Apparently it's going to be €79.99, which is a tad expensive if you ask me. Also, it looks like there is a bar behind the wheel, so it seems it won't be standing on the wheel, using black magic, after all :/
  12. LEGO Ninjago 2017 Discussion

    You can already get those! I did a review here: https://bricksamurai.com/30609-lloyd-polybag-review/
  13. LEGO Ninjago 2017 Discussion

    Apparently, if you buy it for £ it ends up being around €85, which is a crazy good discount! Shame they don't deliver this set :/
  14. LEGO Dimensions Discussion

    And here I am without the Ninjago team pack :D I'm yet to see it on a substantial discount :/ (waiting to be able to get it for ~15eur)
  15. LEGO Ninjago Movie Videogame

    WB Games shared a new trailer for the game yesterday: It shows some very interesting environments as well as some TV show tie-ins. The environments seem only to be inspired by existing sets and locations in the show. I hope we get to see something similar in the movie itself.
