    Personally I think we have just been so exposed to the crazy work of the ninjago city series we’ve become accustomed to it, and normal sets that would be totally amazing like the city of lanterns are over shadowed by the incredible Ninjago city range. Basically ninjago is stealing the city of lanterns thunder.

    Damn it, and I didn't get a screen shot. Well the pics where very blurry anyways, but they where definitely the sets. The spinners packaging where almost dress shaped, with a cone shaped bottom and a ninjago logo half way up, and then a large text/energy burst top section. The training ground, as I said looked to have a tall structure in the centre, looking almost like a statue, and a section either side that looks built up, like a small structure. Honestly a 4 post bed comes to mind. Miscellaneous stuff dotted around and a white spinner in the centre. Not sure if its just whited out of if its a zane spinner. Its likely as there are Jay, Lloyd and Kai ones coming separately. Yet again, Cole gets the bottom of the barrel unfortunately.

    So very blurry pics just leaked on Instagram from a Spanish catalogue that’s so horrendously blurry you can’t really make anything out, but it does show on the final 2 pages the ninjago sets in prelim form, and we get a view of the March sets. The spinners look to be basicly spinjitzu slam, and the training grounds actually bear resemblance to the city of oraborus from the show, with a large statue in the centre (snake head?) and 2 sections connected to it with miscellaneous things dotted around and a white spinner in the centre. The post in question has multiple pics and actually starts off with a catalogue view of the dark trooper battle pack. Poster is “ohslego” After learning more about the wave and why it exists, I have come around on some of the sets. The 2 small dragons are beyond saving, tho I like the side builds in the Kai one. Jays car isn’t great, it’s to overclusterd with all the gold blades on it. The Lloyd thagon (thick dragon) is alright, but I still find the combo of the head, massive chest pieces and the weird wings making the whole thing feel like just a regular toy, and not a “Lego” set. The temple is fine but a bit on the high side, and the Lloyd car is pretty nice tbh. Zanes mech is great, I love it. It’s just those unbending knees but considering it’s for a younger audience and it’s part of the new system I can forgive it. Lloyds mech is Lloyds mech.

    Does anyone know if there’s anyway to get ahold of the monkie kid OST? I know this is specifically for sets however I love the show and the music is particularly incredible (the delivery soundtrack, DBK face off, spider queens defeat, and the escape from lady bone demon to name a few) and I would love to be able to find it. It gets annoying having to go back to the show even when some parts of it you can’t even watch. Thinking about emailing Lego customer services to see if they can point me in the right direction as I’d love to find it. I think we can all agree MK doesn’t get the love it deserves.

    Rest of the sets leaked on #ninjago leaks. Dragons look terrible IMO, Zanes mech is ehh, the temple is also a bit off, giant power rangers fever dream combo mech looks just plain weird, lloyds car looks great actually and lloyds mech looks fine. Mini thunder raider polybag looks cool. Im gonna wait till 2 to give my first thoughts, but im not really impressed with the wave as it is. as promo bricks said, it’s just…juniourised

    New monkie kid set leaked, appears to be the source of the blue diving apparatus in the city of lanterns set. Its a small poly bag underwater scene, with the staff on the sea floor and MK on a sub-scooter. pretty cool!

    Ok, so I think we should focus on the main set we got today, I dont want to judge the blurry pics yet but they look alright. This wave is..... interesting. I dont know about it. Snakes again, these are confirmed snakes as the names are listed are "boa destructor" and "boa mechanic". The Jay and Nya figs, although very simplistic, look alright. I just which they had a bit more detail. The snakes helicopter looks fine, lego is clearly taking advantage of teal now, its everywhere! Not really a fan of the colour schemes but I think I will come round to it. The car looks alright, its definitely over clustered with all the gold bits, but it shouldn't be too much of a pain to remove them. I think the stud shooters can actually move down into the car body which would be nice. A cool speed champions counterpart! Overall I think this set sparks something we all have been saying we need. Classic ninjago. This is a car, fighting a snake helicopter. Tell me that in 2012 and I wouldn't have batted an eyelid. Its classic Ninjago, but updated. I cant wait to see the temple set, and it looks like the other sets are being revealed at 2pm London time today!

    I think only leaks to be honest. I can’t wait to see some actual decent pics of it though, and I’ll have a go working on it if the parts and instructions do come out.

    So. Looks like the review threshold for the new monkie kid sets is already open, yet we still haven’t seen any Ninjago, nor city, a couple of star wars and Harry Potter sets and a couple of other entire waves like creator. I don’t know what’s going on with the reveals at Lego, but this isn’t good. We’re only a month out from release

    Well We knew she was in the legendary dragon set, and I was hoping that that was a legacy remake of the Lloyds NRG dragon from the DotD\skybound wave and she was just a legacy fig, however we have never had a duel race car with the 2 before so that means it’s not a legacy set, and as it’s EVO that means it could be the new chapter. I’m not saying season yet as the stuff doesn’t really fit in. Best guess now is that this is gonna be like SOG, only instead of bikes it’s now race cars as that’s 2 cars now in the EVO line up, and I’m calling it now, as the car is a tandem vehicle it will most certainly split in half forming 2 bikes. I’ll be disappointed if that doesn’t happen.

    Huh so a new set name just leaked, jay and nyas race car EVO, set 71776, meaning Nya will be part if the new season/event, As we know there isn't a duel race car if EVO was a legacy replacement. I guess this makes her sacrifice last season kinda worthless. Disappointing. But interesting that we still haven't got pictures, and this set is slated for a January release so there may be more sets we haven't seen. Where are they?

    I agree. This is honestly disgusting. The fact that TLG seem to have been “oh yeah let’s celebrate ninjago” for only the 1st third of the year and have just let it drop of now…. It’s still the tenth anniversary is it not? Best guess honestly is that we will get the pics off a retail site. The ones already revealed where either already licensed or Lego exclusive, such as Singapore, MK or Star Wars

    Honestly the most interesting part of the set is the Mei fig. After taking quite the back seat in season 2 it seems like she may actually be the focus of this season/chapter. She appears to be wielding all 3 rings, and using crystals ninjago style. It also looks like this isn't really a mech, more of a giant form of macaque or a robot version, as there doesn't look like there's anywhere to put him. Over all this wave is a mixed bag for me. Obvious highlights are the city of lanterns, the evil mech and the galactic explorer, but I'm not really a fan of the moon cake factory and the fire ring. The dragon car is fine, but im not a fan of the head at the front. Everything else though is amazing. The value across the wave is also pretty good from a UK standpoint, the city of lanterns especially. Honestly I saw a set like the city coming. The success of the Ninjago City lines, paired with the amazing feedback of the buildings from wave one basically made this set a lock at some point, and putting a bunch of them in a massive set either to hike the price or make it easier to get them all is an interesting move. I'm not complaining, just an observation. personally I think the figs are the highlight of this entire wave. There's arm printing galore! Rumble and Savage, the 2 shadow monkey minions look great, MK from the dragon car and evil mech looks sick, its nice to have a clip on the back for the staff and I love the apocalypse like look he's going for, sandy as a minifig looks fine, I love his weapon. Macaque looks awesome with his 6 ears, space crew look fine (good to see the tang man back!), Chang'e looks good as a moon goddess I think, Nezha looks pretty good as a minifig and I get that rings are his thing and all but I really dont like his little stand with the 2 rings on it, I may change that as he just looks like hes riding around on a Segway (no doubt that will be a joke in the cartoon), and really im not a fan of his mono wheel vehicle, and I think it will look a lot better without the ring, with it just being like a large hover craft type thing. The MK figure in this set is quite possibly my favourite, I love the armour and the visor! It looks amazing, and it's interesting to see that LBD is back. Mei is probably my least favourite fig out of this entire wave, apart from the evil Macaque mech version, just because im still getting used to the neon colour and there isn't any armour or helmet on her normal figure. I'm fine with it, but I just prefer the other figs. MK in the city of lanterns set though is something else........

    monkie kid names are in the instructions database, hopefully ninjago will follow soon. MK names sound pretty cool as well. the day draws near for the set pictures!
