    Pretty sure we've seen Kai's Spinjitzu figure, but not his actual outfit.
  2. The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)

    Batman.. with the Joker?
  3. I thought funny Garmadon was Season 2 Garmadon.
  4. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    Maybe the resurrection process was interrupted or imperfect, or something. They're probably not going to have Garmadon running around looking like the undead for the rest of the series, so I've got a feeling he won't last very long.
  5. I'd prefer if they just said the ninjas were updated. I don't think the redesigns have to be explained necessarily, I'm more annoyed that the excuse they go with is that they're "growing up" when they're not (besides Lloyd) and everyone just buys it and comes up with semi realistic explanations that are just.. slightly reaching in a show that runs on Rule of Cool
  6. The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)

    The LEGO Movie 2 - Lord Business is actually Emmet's father, and they try to bond awkwardly The Billion Brick Race - Crossover with all the LEGO movies with father issues from all, and the human part is a kid dealing with his relationship with his absentee father who is a NASCAR racer
  7. Yes, yes, I know, there are plenty of possible explanations, but I'm more concerned with the fact the changes don't feel like organic developments that represent the characters' growth. I'm talking in a meta sense, not in-universe.. where things happen because of meta reasons because it's a cartoon. When time-skips happen and characters grow up, they still generally keep their signature traits, but Jay's literally swapping his own for another version of himself, whose own appearance compliments his own personality, but doesn't necessarily fit show Jay's. And again freckles usually represent youth.. so a character who is already in his late teens gaining them to show aging is a little odd! And may I mention that the characters aren't even actually aging much if at all.. And then there's Kai's scar switching sides. And the gigantic elephant in the room that are the future reflections. Ultimately, the changes are simply because of brand synergy with the movie.. and I doubt they put near as much thought as fans do into their implementation into the show's canon (nor did they actually have a choice in the matter). Heck, even Lloyd. He doesn't have a new voice actor because he hit puberty.. he has one because they wanted him to sound more like Dave Franco.
  8. But their movie counterparts are younger... how does Jay gaining freckles show he aged? That's supposed to be a sign of youth.. They all look younger than they already did before. Looks like SamX's identity's been leaked. It was pretty obvious.

    What's there to gain if the foreign audience saves it though? They most likely won't make a sequel though. Either way it's bad if the foreign box office is nearly half of it's total.. at it's current amount.

    I just bookmarked the "sonsofgarmadon" tag on Instagram.

    What function does the skirt serve Nya though? Besides making it obvious she's a girl.
  12. The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)

    Great, direct to DVD sequel confirmed

    Lloyd isn't a hybrid, he's as close to the movie design as the show's style can allow. Only difference is that his mouth doesn't move fluidly.

    Weird, Zane had his Titanium face on the promo art.
  15. The Lego Ninjago Movie (2017)

    I think I might have been too dismissive before. Yes, "less people are going to the theaters", but do you think it's the only factor that caused the numbers to be as low as they are? It's being compared to the other LEGO movies because.. it's a LEGO Movie! It's a part of a franchise. Either way, it doesn't really matter what caused it, poor advertising, unfavorable word of mouth, or whatever. Unlike, the others, it's based off a lesser known property, and it failed to attract enough people in spite of everything against it. It's making its budget back at a snail's pace, it's lowered confidence in the LEGO Movie brand, and another LEGO Ninjago theatrical movie is looking financially inadvisable.
