  1. Animation's never been this good
  2. January, eh? Well.. where's the trailer at
  3. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    Nah, ninja are supposed to be eternally teenagers. Hagemans have gone on record saying the show wouldn't work if they "had dad-bods".
  4. LEGO Ninjago 2018

    I just assumed the leakers did it on purpose. Well, they did confirm one of the new characters is the princess of Ninjago, so yeah.
  5. Well.. as you said: The reason him being not there may have implied that, but the next season they made the reason for that being that he learned to become invisible. Or, at least that's what Tommy Andreasen said. Yes, they are not only the same characters, but they are characters, and thus, their designs can be altered on a whim. If the designs aren't concrete, that kinda just gives credence to the theory that they were altered by the timey-wimey ball. And we still literally saw Lloyd transform into his elderly self before our eyes. Green eyes, sure, he unlocked a new power, but not the other stuff. I'm just saying, I think their design changes are just a bit too drastic to be simple aging (eyebrows, mouths, facial details). And I just can't reason a way for them to change so much in the span of a year (when surely at least two years have passed in the span of the show already) that doesn't sound like a bit of a stretch. Like.. Kai has his movie scar now. Did the mark on his eyebrow jump sides? They're thinner, did he pluck his eyebrows? Eh, I guess we'll just have to wait and see how and if they'll handle flashbacks, or references to the old looks. If they actually bother to animate new ones anyway. Maybe a potential "Season 8 Classic Kai" would have his current face, but without a scar and with the old spiky hair.
  6. Or.. it could be because of time travel. Hair is fine, but the more drastic things can be time travel. But, it doesn't have to because of them literally being older. Time travel can be the in-universe explanation, but their design changes can represent the show and characters being a bit more mature. Jay's comment is supposed to be a joke that they have changed and Cole is right, but neither of them can actually know that. You mean that the designs are changing, or that they "aren't"? Personally I just think time travel is a smoother way of explaining it away. "Change one thing, change everything". We know what the ninja are supposed to look when they're older (reflections, Old Man Lloyd), and "they had makeovers but then changed back" just sounds clunky over "time has literally been altered".
  7. Logically they'd have been in their mid-teens in the beginning and late teens now.
  8. Well.. they're not really "directly" talking about their changes because, as Cole says, they wouldn't even be aware they had changed, and they aren't. It's a tongue-in-cheek explanation, but an explanation nonetheless. Besides, it's only been one year and they're still just teenagers, and "time travel mumbo jumbo" covers the weirder things like Jay's hair changing color, or their new face details. And the future reflections, which are clearly their original designs aged up. Did you look at the sneak peek?
  9. I'm just glad they didn't try to convince us this is them "growing up". Just a minor time travel induced retcon.
  10. LEGO Ninjago 2018

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

    Batman.. with the Joker?
  12. I thought funny Garmadon was Season 2 Garmadon.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
