    What do the other Minifigs (including villains, if present) look like, and what skin-colour do the Human characters use (standard yellow, flesh-tone, or something else)? 
    From having briefly Googled these characters, it seems likely that Tang Sanzang will be a normal Minifig, and that Zhu Bajie will have a mould similar to a Gamorrean.

    From what I’ve seen, this all sounds like it checks out. And (assuming this info is legit) I’m right about every set being able to connect into a big board game? In that case I think I’m going to buy a lot of this subtheme. 

    I suspected that there might be cards! I bet the ninjas will have ‘character sheets’, possibly also classes, as well as stats, equipment (no doubt with cards for weapons and items). 

    One of the things that makes the most sense to me about this is the idea that this wave will be less focused on Ninjago’s typical Asian vibe and more based on Western fantasy tropes, because of the rumoured ‘Monkie King’ subtheme. This sort of lines up, because if they’re debuting a new Asian-inspired theme, temporarily steering Ninjago away from Asian thematics makes perfect sense to prevent it from getting ‘samey’. 

    Is there going to be a secondary sub-wave releasing around October? We had rumours of an April/May release containing four more Prime Empire and Legacy sets, two each. Is this the new normal?

    EDIT: Also, as for the Beholder thing, it’s possible that they’ll be only in the show, since we’ve had show stuff that was never in a set quite often and that sounds about right. Also, interesting that they’re doing skeletons again, but I assume these ones are different to the OG 2011 Skellingtons. (Is that right? It’s been like a decade I forget.)

    So, there are going for an "Adventurers Orient Expedition" kind of wave.
