  1. Some eagle-eyed viewers noticed the teapot inside the Desert Beetle in episode 4 of season 11. It also got regurgitated out when Zane escaped the Beetle's belly. I don’t think anything can be confirmed, but I wonder if they’re laying the groundwork for Nadakhan's return there. Back on the season we’re in now (Episode 27/28 spoilers to follow)

    The piece count for the Golden Mech appears too high to be just the mech, so I wouldn’t be surprised if an Overlord Dragon was included with it, like the Giant Stone Warrior in the Earth Driller. Also, we only know the names of two sets, it’s possible other previously unreleased models are on the way. The Jungle Raider's inclusion is odd, but it shows they’re going up to season 4 with remakes, so maybe it’s an opportunity to get those last few elemental masters that we’re missing.

    I’ve been playing around with one of the Spinjitzu Slam sets and I can confirm that the mechanism not only works with the Legacy wave spinners, but also works with the 2011/12 spinners. Kind of a game changer for people still wanting to play the old Spinjitzu game. It also kind of begs the question why they redesigned the Spinjitzu tornado mould but it looks kind of cool, so I’m not really complaining.

    LEGO 2019 Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    That’s very interesting how the ratings differ. I’d say that LEGO could justify Stranger Things because, whether they should be watching it or not, the show is very popular with 12-15 year olds, largely because of the main cast of kids becoming role models for so many of them. It would be very irresponsible for LEGO to promote Game of Thrones to the target LEGO audience simply because sex not only features, but themes around it are overtly prevalent. It’s really the graphic horror of Stranger Things that made me believe it wasn’t ever going to be made into LEGO, but I guess they could look past that. Overwatch too appears to be mostly marketed towards adult fans, but even so, from my understanding of the game, it’s violence level is no worse than, say, Star Wars.
  5. Nor do I, but it would make sense for them to make the show feel different after March of the Oni, as that felt like the end of a saga. Now season 11 is moving into a new show, which is still the old show, but with a different runtime and slightly different title. If we are getting thirty 11-minute episodes this season, I would not be complaining. I wonder if, with the new runtime, we will see a change in the style of episodes. Maybe the show will take inspiration from other Cartoon Network shows, like the last couple of seasons of Adventure Time, with each episode having a more contained storyline with a consistent threat throughout.
  6. That trailer appears to have been leaked prematurely, as the animation appears unfinished, at least according to Tommy Andreasen. Whether or not this is Season 11 or a miniseries remains unclear. According to a tweet thread (source below) the new series consists of 30 11 minute episodes, which is 15 22 minute episodes so we might be looking at a bit of a soft reboot for the series. The series is also apparently called ‘Ninjago” as opposed to ‘Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu’. (Source: https://ninja-guy-yo.tumblr.com/post/184562231916/considering-that-would-be-15-normal-22-minute)

    I’d hope so, but I feel like we’d at least know a set number for it by now, so it’s not looking likely...

    Sorry to briefly distract from the exciting reveals but is the 70680 Monastery Training out or exclusive to somewhere? I haven’t been able to find it anywhere and I dont want to make the unnecessary effort to order it from Shop@Home...

    I’ve heard that the next wave will be villain fighting villain fighting the ninja. The story will be super interesting if this is the case. I wonder how Zane and Kai will play into the story if there is a ice vs. fire theme. There’s this rumour that Zane will become an Ice Emperor, will Kai become a Fire King? It hurts how true this is...

    I don’t think the Legacy wave was ever about connecting to the current storyline, rather reimagining scenes from the first two seasons. The Legacy shorts, while also made to entertain, were likely made simply to advertise the sets, minifigures that pop up are just an added bonus. We also didn’t see Garmadon or the minifigure-sized Stone Warriors in the Legacy shorts.

    Ah! I did hear tell that Nya’s face print has been updated in the Legacy wave, which is pleasing, seeing as her two face prints beforehand look incredibly similar under the mask. As well as the limited potential with his hair, I feel like I’m dissatisfied with Zane’s many faces since the redesign, mainly because they don’t really resemble faces Zane would regularly pull in the cartoon, I’d love to something that reflects his calmer personality in future, perhaps, like you say, on a future promo figure.

    I second this. I understand the current faces aren’t even two years old, but I realised recently how much I’d love to see ‘elemental’ faces for the new expressions, like the ones we have on the NRG and Airjitzu figures. The closest we have is the Legacy Golden Ninja, but it’d be great to see some for the others. I also hope that Zane’s standard head is updated, if only to update his smiling face to something less...intense.

    ^ I’m also wondering about this, I have a Shop@Home order on standby waiting for those Oni figures! On a seperate note, does anyone else’s Stone Harumi from the Bricktober pack have a really loose mask? It’s not a massive drama but its a little frustrating

    Pictures of an updated Ninjago: Visual Dictionary are circulating the web. Thrilled to see they’re updating the book, as the last one only goes up to Rebooted. I guess this also means speculation on who the new exclusive minifigure is. Judging by the green energy around the slot, I’d say that its a Lloyd variant. (I wasn’t sure if I was allowed to share the cover on here, but you shouldn’t have much trouble finding it, its around the usual places)
