    Ninjago: Project Rebuild

    Hi! I didn't know where else to put this so I hope it's ok if I post this here. Hey random person on the internet reading this! Did you watch the Lego Ninjago Movie and were unable to help but feel like the trailers sold you a very different product? Did the Lego Ninjago Movie feel lacking in any way, as though many scenes were cut from the finished movie? Did you feel that the other Ninja, or anyone without “Garmadon” in their name, were given the shaft in terms of character development, or any substantial characterization? I feel you, reader. I feel you as keenly as one feels a stray, unsuspecting brick on the floor when the lights are out. Last question, are you looking for quality Ninjago content? Then look no further! I’ve got you covered! Welcome to Project Rebuild! What is Project Rebuild, you ask? It’s my script rewrite of the Lego Ninjago Movie. My goal is to condense the essence of 7 seasons of the tv show into one cohesive story, while following the basic plot of the Lego Ninjago Movie. But wait! There’s more! Tirelessly seeking out all promotional material for the movie, (i.e. trailers, junior novel, the “Making of Lego Ninjago Movie” book, etc.) I have struggled to reconstruct (pun intended) this cohesive story with as many deleted concepts as I could fit in. It’s an adaptation distillation, if you will. Oh and this just in! As an added bonus, I’ll be attempting to incorporate the toys sets into the story too. Here’s the synopsis: Lloyd Garmadon, the Chosen One, stands at the center of the battle between good and evil. As the Green Ninja, he is beloved by all as the constant savior of the city of Ninjago. But as the son of the Evil Lord Garmadon, he is hated by the very same citizens he saves. Under the guidance of the wise Master Wu, Lloyd and his team, the Secret Ninja Force, will need all the help they can get to keep it together and defend the city from Lord Garmadon and greater threats. Without any further ado, here's Chapter 1: EXT. MOUNTAIN TOP – NIGHT TWO FIGURES stand locked in combat against each other atop a tall and craggy mountain. Rain pours down heavily. Lightning crackles and thunder booms to emphasize every movement. Blow after furious blow is struck. Lightning strikes illuminate the faces of the combatants. We see a close up of MASTER WU, a wise-looking old man with a long white beard. He wears a white robe and a conical hat. His weapon is a long, wooden staff. Opposite him is his brother, LORD GARMADON, a far taller adversary owing to his towering horned helmet and double torso that sports four arms. He wears black samurai armor that matches his skin, which has been charred black due to his corruption. His red, glowing eyes are also signs of his corruption. His weapons are four katanas, one in each hand. Despite Lord Garmadon's extra arms, Master Wu defends himself well. The two appear locked in a stalemate. Lord Garmadon makes a demonic, fanged smile as he speaks. LORD GARMADON: You will never defeat me, brother. MASTER WU: It is not my destiny to defeat you. But it will be your son's. Angered, Lord Garmadon uses his swords to push Master Wu away in a burst of energy. LORD GARMADON: You leave Luh-loyd out of this! Master Wu remains calm but his eyes fixed on Lord Garmadon. His voice is resolute. MASTER WU: One day, your son, LLOYD GARMADON, will defeat you, as the prophecy foretold. I invoke it! A powerful burst of thunder and lightning strikes ominously as Wu says this. We pan up to see a large object fall from the sky. It is a non-Lego fortune cookie. It breaks apart as it crashes on the ground, revealing the fortune prophecy within written in glowing, gold ink. LORD GARMADON: Prophecy? Well, two can play at that game. One day, my son, Lloyd Garmadon will join me and my evil ways. MASTER WU: (shocked) What?! LORD GARMADON: Together, we will conquer Ninjago and we shall be unstoppable, as the prophecy foretold. MASTER WU: No! LORD GARMADON: I… MASTER WU: You… LORD GARMADON (CONT’D): …invoke… MASTER WU (CONT’D): …wouldn't… LORD GARMADON (CONT’D): …it. MASTER WU (CONT’D): …dare! Another powerful burst of thunder and lightning strikes ominously as though to punctuate the gravity of their words. Another non-Lego fortune cookie falls from the sky. It falls between the two brothers, causing them to jump away to safety. Both witness the fortune cookie splitting in half before them as the glowing prophecy fortune writes itself into existence. LORD GARMADON: Oh, I dare. I have every right to dare. Our entire realm has the power to invoke prophecies on a whim. We control the destinies of every citizen in Ninjago! We should be gods! MASTER WU: Father would not have wanted this! LORD GARMADON: Well, father is no longer here. We've squandered our potential long enough, brother, and now it is to time to re-make Ninjago in my image. MASTER WU: I may not be the one to defeat you, Garmadon. But I will make sure you don't succeed. Lord Garmadon sees something behind Master Wu. He smirks confidently knowing he has the upper hand, all four of them. LORD GARMADON: Hey, whatever lets you sleep at night, brother. A large shark-shaped flying vessel, the SKY SHARK, arrives from the clouds. It lowers its anchor, which Lord Garmadon grabs onto as it flies by. LORD GARMADON: Looks like my ride's here. Another time, brother. Garmadon leaves on the Sky Shark. His evil laughter echoes in the distance. Wu is left on the mountain but he has a determined look on his face. MASTER WU: I, Master Wu, swear the solemn oath to form a SECRET NINJA FORCE to stop Garmadon at every turn. I invoke it. Dramatic thunder strikes. Cut to black as the last fortune cookie falls from the sky.
  2. Jay is the ninja of lightning and he's one of my favourite characters in Ninjago. I really hope the movie will keep the spark of genius in his character. Without further delay, I present to you my 11th RA review, set # 70614 - Lightning Jet. Overview Name: 70614 - Lightning Jet Theme: The LEGO Ninjago Movie Year: 2017 (2H) Pieces: 876 Minifigures: 6 Price: USD 59.99 / EUR 59.99 / GBP 59.99 / SGD 119.99 / MYR 299.90 Resources: Brickset Official set description Introduction Out of the 6 ninjas in The LEGO NINJAGO Movie, there are only 2 of them who operates flying robots/vehicles. Of course, there's Lloyd and then Jay. In the TV series, Jay is the one with the flying contraption when Sensei Wu recruited him to join the ninja team as the new elemental master of lightning. He is also the first one who ever had a flying jet fighter as featured in set 9442 Jay's Storm Fighter. So, needless to say, I am very pleased that Jay has a flying jet in this movie. The front panel showcases the lightning abilities of Jay and his Lightning Jet fighter -- but none of these are real. The Lightning Jet cannot electrocute you. Not even the minifigures. If it could, then it will likely get banned for being a health hazard. Thankfully, it does not generate static electricity even if the front panel makes you believe it does. False *cough* advertising *cough*. No, this is just all make-belief. Also, while Jay is shown here zapping one of the bad guys, it also shows how bad his aiming abilities are. At point-blank range, he can't even hit Crusty who operates the cute and tiny crab mech. He might even hit Edna who is being held captive. Just look at the trajectory of that missile. Joking aside, the box art grabs your attention because this is probably the best angle of the Lightning Jet. With all those pointy things protruding from its wings - it looks weird and fun at the same time. The back panel shows several play features including the stud shooters of the small crab build, the missile trigger of the Lightning Jet, the spinning mechanism on top, as well as the option to move the wings to change the shape and form of the jet by turning or twisting the wings outwards. Frankly, it looks weird when you make it like an "H" or "A" shape. Therefore, for the whole review, I am sticking with the "V" form. The side panel shows the names of the listed minifigures that come in the set. Unboxing the contents Inside the box, we get 7 numbered bags, 1 plastic bag with the instruction manual and sticker sheet inside, as well 3 big loose pieces. Instruction manual and sticker sheet The instruction manual is quite big - about the size of A4 paper. Like what I have mentioned in my Ice Tank review, the instructions are likely printed this big to make it easier for kids to follow the instructions. Then, there is the dreaded sticker sheet that I need to apply because I am using this set on exhibits organised by my local LUG... otherwise, I really won't put the stickers on this set. Anyway, let's build! Build I like to start with the preview of the each numbered plastic bag so that you know upfront how each of them contributes to the build. Do take note, that there are 3 big loose parts that are not originally part of the bags but I included them in the picture as needed in the instructions for each bags. Bag #1 content There are several elements here in sand blue colour. It's always good to parts in that colour for variety. Bag #1 build This is the small crab mech without the stickers. It looks decent enough to be sold as a stand-alone build (e.g. polybag). Somehow, this reminds me of Mixels because the build itself evokes a playful and cheeky character. It comes with 6 articulated legs, articulated pincher claw, 6-studs shooter, as well as a yellow banner/flag that is connected to a ball joint piece. Bag #2 contents There are lots of good blue parts in this set and bag #2 will just whet your appetite. Bag #2 build This is how the frame looks like so far. Bag #3 contents The best thing about bag #3 is that we finally get Ed and Edna. More about them in the minifigure section. Bag #3 build The circular structure on top is referred to as "electro-disc" in the set description so I will use that term moving forward. I think the red round bricks are meant to be imaginary missile warheads. Otherwise, what those things would rather be? Confetti canisters? Bag #4 contents Hmmm... nothing much to comment on the parts. Just look at the build progress below. Bag #4 build For a moment I had to recheck if I was still building a LEGO system set because over 80% of bag #4 are Technic parts. Just take a moment to appreciate that funky frame above. It can stand on its own! The technic frame connects with the build from bag #3 to form a blue headless, wingless bird build below. That's really what I can imagine from the build so far. Bag #5 contents Bag #5 build Now it is starting to look more like an aircraft, less of a headless blue bird. Bag #6 contents We get 4 LBG space positioning rockets in this set. There are 4 blue tail shuttle as well, which is surprisingly not common. Bag #6 build After putting all the bricks from bag #6, the Lightning Jet gets a more threatening look with turbojet engine on each wing. Bag #7 contents There are 24 LBG antennae whip in this set. Isn't that a record for the most number of antennae in a playset? Bag #7 build Here is the final build of Lightning Jet without the stickers. It looks just fine without the stickers and if I could have it my way, I would not have applied them. There is almost 100% symmetry in this build but the right tip in front of the cockpit area is a bit longer. I suppose these are imaginary turret guns for short range targets. You can see from this picture that it takes a "V" shape and it's the most camera-friendly form. As the wings are held by ratcheted joints, you can also move the wings so that it could form an "H" shape or even an "A". You can scroll up and review the back panel of the box for reference if you missed it. It looks awesome when viewed from this angle but the picture does not give justice to the actual thing. I like the trans-light blue pieces for imaginary jet propulsion engine as well as the guard flaps around it. You can sense speed and agile when you the Lightning Jet at any angle. Parts Below are the parts that are either rare because they are new colour or new print. Let's go through one by one. 85861: Plate Round 1 x 1 with Open Stud - appeared in this set in trans-light blue. The other set where it appears in this colour is just the Ninjago Dragon Forge set 88517: Wheel 75 x 17 Motorcycle - Black - the only other set that has this part in black is the BMW motorbike. There are three blue wedge parts in this set that are surprisingly rare - to think that blue is a primary colour. These parts are design # 43713, 43712, and 64225 which appears in blue colour for first time. 41751: Opaque windscreen in blue - also its first time to appear in blue! 11477: Slope Curved 2 x 1 No Studs - again, first time to appear in sand blue! 44676: Flag 2 x 2 Trapezoid - first time to appear in yellow? 18654: Technic Pin Connector Round 1L is aslo rare. Of course, there goes the minifigure parts such as 93217: Minifig Hair with Top Knot Bun which appears in dark brown for the first time. The other exclusive components of Ed and Edna minifigures are the minifigure heads, torso and legs. Minifigures Of all The LEGO Ninjago Movie sets, this has the highest number of exclusive minifigures. You get Ed, Edna and Crusty -- and you cannot get these 3 minifigures elsewhere, at least in the first wave of TLNM sets. I love oldie minifigures so getting Ed and Edna is the icing on top of the cake, so to speak. They look quite similar to the TV version and I like that. Ed has the tools on his utility vest while Edna seems to be wearing a cross between yukata and restaurant uniform. Overall, the prints for these minifigures are excellent. Crusty (the one with the crab headgear) might be a reference to Krusty Krab -- the infamous and most popular restaurant in Bikini Bottom in the world of Sponge Bob. But that's just a theory... a makoy theory. Front view with head pieces, head gears and accessories Back view with head pieces, head gears and accessories Back view without head pieces, head gears and accessories Don't get confused with the minifigure images below as they are meant for comparison only. Comparing the movie version of Jay with some TV version minifigures You can check in my Flickr album the back view of these minifigures with hairpieces and headgears, front view of these minifigures without hairpieces and headgears, and back view of these minifigures without hairpieces and headgears. Messing around with different combinations of hair pieces and head gears The picture above is just a quick take on how the classic Jay head piece looks like with the new hair piece. I like that punk rocker look (3rd from left). If nautical nonsense be something you wish! Conclusion Let me revisit the bubble graph that I used in my previous Ice Tank review. Again, different regions have different pricing strategy so if you like to see the other charts and data you can click these links: GBP chart/data, EUR chart/data, MYR chart/data. For the USD chart below, you can check out the tabulated data also. The key take away from this chart that I want to emphasise is that this set has an outstanding value. Just look at the blue bubble hiding behind the lime green and dark orange bubble. It's one of the best value set you can get from TLNM theme. For its play features, the grip of the jet reminds me of set # 70747 Boulder Blaster. I'm very glad the designers added this grip so that you can easily swoosh the jet around. It's not as posable as the Green Ninja Mech Dragon but it's definitely more playable when you hold the grip. While I like the grip, it slightly disappoints because unlike the Boulder Blaster, you cannot trigger the missile of Lightning Jet easily. When you squeeze the trigger, it turns the "electro-disc". It looks cool after a few spin but once you've spun it around several times, the replay value quickly diminishes. I wish the trigger just fire the missile. The build also has a great mass and volume that when you put it next to the more expensive Ice Tank, you would think that this set ought to be more expensive because it looks bigger and wider. It is a great looking jet which strikes a resemblance to some superhero spacecraft named after a famous actress. It's hard to think of anything negative apart from fun factor that wears off easily. With all these positive things about the set, like the great value and excellent minifigure line-up, I will be shocked if it does not sell as much as the Fire Mech. The Ninja Games: Mockingjay Review summary Playability: 8.5/10 - It is very swooshable but I don't buy the spinning 'electro-disc' on top. I wish the trigger just fires the missile. It's great to have a small Crab build for the bad guys to balance the role-playing elements. Design / Building Experience: 8.5/10 - It's challenging not to get 'pricked' by those antennae but it's part of the design that makes it unique and likable. I do have a concern losing one of those pieces while playing. Minifigures: 10/10 - Greatest selection of minifigures at this price point. I love that we finally got Ed and Edna. Price / Value for money: 9/10 - Outstanding value that blows away both Fire Mech & Green Ninja Mech Dragon. There are also great selection of parts in new colour. Overall: 9/10 - If you like spaceships, then you're going to love Jay's Lightning Jet. The Crab build is also surprisingly great for such a small build. I highly recommended this set.

    Ninjago: Skylor's Quest

    What has Skylor been getting up to, aside from taking over her father's noodle business? A new Ninjago saga begins! Created by Jack Rizzo. -Cast- Skylor - Sara Dunham Sensei Wu - Jack Rizzo Chamille - Annette Rizzo If you follow my Instagram, you've probably seen that I've been getting into Ninjago lately. I've accumulated some of the sets over the years, but only got into the show about a montha and a half ago, and since then I've been bouncing around ideas and Bricklinking parts, etc. The world has such a unique aesthetic to it, and making up new storylines has been really fun. I'm hoping to bring a couple to you; let me know in the comments if more Ninjago videos is something you want to see! Want to see more from Jam Pot Studios?

  5. I wanted to display all the ninjas I have collected in their elements so within a day I put together this to parade all the ninjas (except Nya as I am unsure how I can fit Nya in this display) but I am happy how this came out after only spending 2-3 hours for this very simple MOC. Haven't put the stone army Kai yet.... and once I get the 2016 wave I will update this for sure. here's the plate without the ninjas --
  6. Shock the snakes with some stunning Spinjitzu! Introduction: Jay ZX is more than ready to battle, outfitted in his ZX costume, metal brackets, and Golden Double-Bladed Sword! Take on the Serpentine any time with this early 2012 Ninjago booster pack, complete with 28 pieces (including five Spinjitzu cards and three weapons)! Check out an image of the set contents (from Brickset) below: And my picture of the bag - after cutting the top off (after all, I had to get inside somehow… ) Product Details: Name: Jay ZX Number: #9553 Theme: Ninjago Year: 2012 Pieces: 28 Minifigures (included in piece count): 1 Price: USD $4.99 Source: Brickset, Peeron Non-ABS Contents (I'm pretty sure the bag is plastic, though not ABS.) As shown above, the bag front has the same Jay ZX graphics as his character card, while on either side are two yellow circles illustrating, from left to right and top to bottom, Jay ZX, the five included cards, his weapons, and the additional pieces that can be added on to the 2012 kind of spinner. On the back of the bag we have the normal legal "…components made in DENMARK, SWEDEN, HUNGARY, MEXICO and the MOON…"*er* "CZECH REPUBLIC", plus the bar code, other information, and a picture showing how Jay ZX can be "boosted" with a weapon, the pieces in his spinner, and a spinner/spinner crown (not included). Upon opening the bag and dumping it out, the contents are one plastic bag with the 23 LEGO pieces (and one extra technic pin, 3/4), the five cards (also sealed in plastic), and the "instructions" or, more accurately, play guide for the spinner game. Before opening it, we can see the same Jay ZX artwork that was on the front of the bag and also on his character card. On the back is an advertisement for, and once opened this will end up right underneath the front. And directly beneath that is the Win! advertisement, which seem to be present in almost every instruction booklet… To the right is a column showing how to build the weapons, minifigure, etc. On the other half of the pamphlet are advertisements, first for the spinners, then Kendo Kai's Training set, Kai's Blade Cycle, Jay's Storm Fighter, and Cole's Tread Assault. On the back the cards are explained in enough detail to play a game, although, without a spinner, it's not possible to do so here! For a normal set, that would be about all the paper. But, since a big highlight of the Ninjago game are the cards, we have five more "printed sheets" to deal with. The back of all the cards is the same; the Ninjago "logo", a red ninja (with the standard ninja eyebrows, not Kai's, and a sword right behind each shoulder) slowly fading into black, underneath which is a advertisement, "LEGO and the LEGO logo are trademarks of the LEGO Group," plus, in this case at least, a six digit number (110642, if you were wondering) that is the same for all five cards. Jay ZX's character card is awesome in terms of graphics, he really looks impressive in the middle of a storm of lightning! As far as SP (and if you're not interested in the game, bear with me, the cards shouldn't take that long!) he's certainly not a bad character, with 1100 total SP (the bars on the sides of battle cards, and on the bottom here), arranged in a fairly even format, 200 Fire, 400 Lightning, 200 Earth, and 300 Ice. (There's a lot more I could say about any card, but for the sake of simplicity, we'll stop there!) Fast as Lightning, the only golden card in this booster pack, and also a Build card (see the bottom left symbol-in-circle), since you are supposed to "Build the above on spinner until a player wins, then remove. Opponent spins with one hand until a player wins." Since the bottom pieces turn freely upon contact with another spinner, they don't really do much toward knocking down your opponent. And since the spikes on top stick straight up instead of out, your opponent will have to hit them with his (or her) weapon to be thrown (and even then, it doesn't always work). Besides being golden, this card also requires 300 Lightning SP. Surrender, "Remove your headgear or armor to avoid losing," is the next card (I'm going by the seven digit numbers on the bottom of the card), and a Control card. Requiring 200 Ice SP, this one can come in handy as a useful last resort when playing. Plus, the front snake on this card looks especially good. Avalanche, the third card, is actually Ice, although you would usually expect an avalanche to be Earth. However, the cards graphics make the reason clear - it's a snow avalanche, not a rock one. According to the instructions (on the card), you are to "Lay down card. Opponent loses if spinner touches it, then remove." With only 100 Ice, this is the lowest metallic Trap card that does not require a golden weapon (denoted by the golden color found on, for example, Fast as Lightning above). And, by virtue of its low SP, it is one of the best cards included with Jay ZX. Double Stars is a Force card, but also a crown card (meaning that you need a crown on to be able to play it) with 300 Lightning SP. The instructions on the card, "Throw this card and your character card during spin," leave it unclear, at least to my mind, whether or not, like a normal crown card, this remains in play until your crown is removed, or just during the one spin you played it in. And unless you're willing to ruin your card, you can't achieve enough force with this to knock anyone off their spinner. Below is a comparison of my card (which I rarely throw), and a friend's, who enjoys trying to whap you with it: And that's all the paper! Let's get on with the minifigure! Minifigure - Jay ZX: Like all the ZX figures, Jay ZX has a new style ninja hat and a shoulder bracket for added impressiveness! His blue color contrasts perfectly with the metallic color of his shoulder gear and hat decoration; I only wish his right arm was the same silver color! In general, his torso is nicely detailed, although the bottom left could use something to take away the empty blue look there. On the back of his torso he has a buckle, and his symbol printed in the middle where it will show through the round circle in his bracket. His pants also have a belt nicely printed on. Weapons and Boosting Pieces: Just like the rest of the Ninjago spinners and Booster Packs, Jay ZX includes three weapons - one golden, one sword-based, and one pole/stick-based. His golden weapon is unique to this set (the Weapons Dictionary calls it a Golden Double-Bladed Sword), and uses a golden chainsaw (only occurring in one other set, or so says BrickSet) to attach the other two pieces together. The sword based weapon is, in fact, a simple Silver Katana, while his pole-based weapon is a bit more complex - a small dagger on a black light-saber hilt on the end of a pole - which is way too long of a weapon to spin with! None of them are particularly good for spinning, but Jay ZX does look impressive with his Golden Double-Bladed Sword! To help power up any spinner, Jay ZX includes two spikes and three blades which can be attached to the bottom of the newer 2012 spinners. And to raise the spinner a bit higher so the blades work better, the pack also includes a 2x2 round brick with grooves on the sides. (Note: spinner not included in booster pack! And for stability, I have removed the 2x2 round trans-blue piece at the bottom of most spinners!) Conclusion: Playability: 5/10 I hate to give it such a low score here, but the lack of a spinner or a minifigure opponent makes playing with it difficult. The weapons aren't the best either, as far as spinning goes. Design: N/A Minifigure: 9/10 Just about the only problem I find is Jay ZX's lack of a chrome arm. Otherwise, the detailing is excellent. Price: 9.5/10 A much better value than a normal spinner, although in general it's not high on parts, the weapons, minifigure and cards are fairly specific pieces that are therefore worth more. Overall: 7.8/10 It's main problem is the lack of playability, but overall I would say it's a good addition to a spinner. Jay ZX is a great character, and, apart from this set, is somewhat rare. Plus, the cards (if you like the game), are useful and Surrender just might save your hide one day!
