    I'm a very big fan of Lego Action Themes. I also enjoy Lego Sci-fi and Historical Themes as well. You'll see me in the respective threads for those themes as well as the Action Figure and Star Wars forums up on occasion.
    Besides Lego, I am a big fan of video games, particularly Nintendo, but there are exceptions, of course. I also love to write! I've been told that I'm very good with fictional writing, not to toot my own horn. I also dabble into some art, but I'm not particularly great at it.

    LEGO Hidden Side 2020

    Likely nothing, as it was it's own thing outside of the usual flow of themes. It was a "digital theme," rather than an "Action Theme" or a "Big Bang Theme"

    Likely to be referential Interestingly, the Monkey King in the English version of Monkie Kid is voiced by Goku's dub voice actor, to just add to the fun.

    I keep hearing this tossed around. The two largest sets of the line went on backorder rather quick, so I'm rather curious if this will be a consistent thing, once LEGO gets everything back up and running again.

    There are some fun, yet loose connections to pull at, such as the villain "Omega" ominously mentioned in Clutch Powers being the same name the lead Oni bears in Season 10 of the Ninjago. They do also bring up that Clutch has had a long career in the show, but, as you said, never really gets explicit into details.

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    Marvel was manufactured early for the US so it can launch on June 1st (which means they were made in March, before closure). Ninjago did not, because they are due out later. Simple. Ninjago's Summer wave was an August launch in 2018 as well. Rebooted was the last time a Summer Ninjago wave launched in June in the US. You can cross reference the release dates on Brickset's website.

    LEGO did that last year. They still came out in August in the US (Cole's Bike said July, and it did, indeed show up in Walmarts and LEGO Stores early in July). But now I'm not even sure they'll even come out then, as the factory in Mexico that makes the US' sets has been closed for the usual month they'd be working on them (May). I can't remember how many years it's been since August wasn't Ninjago's release date. LEGO very rarely strays from their norms, and there's always someone every year who comes in saying otherwise that ends up seriously disappointed in the end.

    If LEGO's website says "Coming Soon" then they aren't coming out June. August has always been the release date for Summer Ninjago in the US.

    June everywhere except the US, but US reviewers will be getting review copies anyway. As always

    LEGO Ninjago 2020

    The first of its kind is in that new 4+ set coming out (Fangpyre Truck) but it doesn't even remotely do the original justice. Villains make-or-break the theme for so many people, and, especially with Legacy, I wish LEGO put more effort into them.

    Considering the fact that the 2020 Legacy suits are based off of Tournament of Elements, I'm not surprised that neither Nya nor Zane have suits to match. But since they aren't those suits, I don't quite understand the logic. I feel this way about a lot of Legacy minifigs. Sure these 2020 sets were in the design stages in 2019, when everyone wasn't sure Legacy would even continue, but I feel from here on out, the subtheme should focus on minifig accuracy as well, as is suiting of a subtheme that touts the name "Legacy." I've been rousing people up about this with the #WeWantAccurateLegacyMinifigs campaign on some social media, hoping for some Pink Zane quality minifigs for Legacy in the future.

    Word is in June everywhere except the US, like it usually is.

    APAC includes Australia. Basically the entire seaboard on that side of the Pacific. Exclusivity has ended at different times since they announced the end of permanent exclusivity. For the CNY sets this year, it was only a few weeks, whereas it was three months for the Dragon Boats last year.

    Regional exclusives are very much still a thing. They just become available in other regions after a limited window of exclusivity. Happened just this year with the Chinese New Year sets.

    I verified with some of the people reporting it, since I was skeptical too. Apparently they got it from someone who knows. Expensive, but for a lot of these, it's obvious to see why. Not to mention that the sets are for an older demographic.

    Well, if these are considered Legacy Spinners, then at least LEGO has been consistent in how they've been handling accuracy in Legacy so far...
