We’re Giving Away The LEGO Ninjago Movie Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate Weapon (70617)!

Here’s another treat from the Brick Show! Hot on the heels of our previous LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (75187) giveaway, Jason and the whole team have another raffle draw that you don’t want to miss. In celebration of the theatrical release of the LEGO Ninjago Movie, we are giving away the LEGO Ninjago Movie Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate Weapon (70617), valued at $100!

Coming in at 1,403 the Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate Weapon is the third largest LEGO Ninjago Movie set offered to the public. Other than the Destiny’s Bounty (70618) where you can have the entire team with their ninja masks on, the Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate Weapon (70617) is the only set that has the complete minifigure roster of our teen ninjas, each donned with their own unique hair pieces and signature weapons. The Temple itself is like a shout out to Indiana Jones Temple of Doom, filled with a host of traps, a secret entrance, and two monstrous stone guardians. The design of the Temple itself is impressive, with an Asian inspired outer facade concealing the many traps waiting inside. Over-all, this is a LEGO set that I will not hesitate to recommend.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game Now Available!

If you want to bring home a piece of the action after watching The LEGO Ninjago Movie, then you may want to pick up a copy of its video game counterpart, The LEGO Ninjago Video Game. Now available in Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC versions, the game itself allows you to take the role of Lloyd, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane, Nya, and Master Wu as you defend the island of Ninjago against the clutches of Garmadon. The game itself is very dynamic and it allows you to execute various moves such as wall-running and high-jumping (who says minifigs can’t do acrobatics?) collectively called Ninjagility. It also offers a lot of interesting back stories about the lives of the film’s characters, especially that of Garmadon and Misako (formerly known as the Lady Iron Dragon). You can purchase the game via Amazon, and currently retails for $59.88. Check out the launch trailer below.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Wave 2 Sets Revealed + LEGO Ninjago Movie Promotionals Now Up!

There has been a lot of activity in LEGO fandom during these past few days, especially prior to the launch of The LEGO Ninjago Movie in the US and the rest of North America. Though I haven’t seen it yet since the movie launch date is a week late here from where I am based, I’m pretty sure that it is a fun film to watch in spite of the mixed reviews that it is getting recently. Without revealing too much spoilers about the film, LEGO has released images of its second wave of LEGO Ninjago Movie sets said to be available towards the end of this year, courtesy of Promobricks.

We already have a hint about this second wave of sets, considering the reveal of the polybag, microversion of Cole’s Quake Mech (30379) back in July, and this time we now have a better look at its larger version. Additionally, we have one interesting set that is making a comeback: The Lloyd – Spinjitzu Master (70628). These and other new sets, along with the SDCC-revealed garmadon, Garmadon, GARMADON! (70656), are expected to hit the toy shelves just in time for the holidays.

Lloyd – Spinjitzu Master (70628)
Includes a Ninjago Movie Lloyd minifigure; estimated at $11.

 

Piranha Chase (70629)
Includes Kai, Misako, Ray, and Shark Army Gunner minifigures; estimated at $25.

 

Garmadon’s Volcano Lair (70631)
Includes Zane, Garmadon, Shark Army General #1, Shark Army Octopus, and GPL Tech minifigures; estimated at $65.

 

Cole’s Quake Mech (70632)
Includes Cole, Misako, Fred Finley, Crusty, and Shark Army Thug minifigures; estimated at $109.

The Lloyd-Spinjitzu Master (706218) is a welcome treat for all spinjitzu fans out there. Though we only have Lloyd as of the moment, we can fairly assume that the rest of The LEGO Ninjago Movie characters will be added to the roster of spinning masters as well. The Quake Mech (70632) is a spot-on representation of Cole’s actual battle mech in the film, and over all, probably best mech-themed set in The LEGO Ninjago Movie line-up. Though common sense might tell you that this is quite an unstable build due to the fact that it is only balanced on a large wheel more like a unicycle, the designers of the Quake Mech cleverly added a rod piece at the back of the wheel to add more stability to this build. We don’t have yet the exact price of these sets in USD nor their piece count, but given its size and value in Euros, we provided a rough estimate of how much it might sell in the US.

So, if you’re still holding on to that LEGO Ninjago Movie purchase up until now, you might be interested to know that the free Mini Green Ninja Mech Dragon (30428) polybag promotional is still up at shop.LEGO.com.  I’m not sure if this is the case in your local LEGO brand stores since it stocks might be out already considering that it comes as a freebie for a relatively small price range – a minimum purchase of any LEGO item of worth $35 and more.

To sweeten the deal, another promotional is currently live: the free and exclusive LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd minifigure (30609) polybag starting September 22 to October 8 or until supplies last. This exclusive Lloyd minifigure comes with a different torso print and a tasselled sword piece, as seen in the movie. As far as I know, this is the only Lloyd minifigure that comes with said torso print, showing his ninja garb beneath the green hoodie. You can have these minifigure polybag for free for any LEGO purchase of $50 and more at shop.LEGO.com, or at your local LEGO Store.

As of this writing, I can confirm that the Mini Green Ninja Mech Dragon (30428) is still up at shop.LEGO.com since it is still appearing in my cart upon checkout, though I’m not sure until when. So if you’re eyeing on that LEGO Ninjago Movie set that you are itching to have, then I suggest now is the time to hit that checkout button.

 

LEGO 2017 Advent Calendars Now Available!

Last February, we had a glimpse of this year’s range of LEGO Advent Calendars at the highly celebrated New York Toy Fair. Though it’s a bit early for LEGO to be announcing these sets, I guess LEGO fans wouldn’t mind having an early view of these neat, holiday keepsakes.  Featuring a fine selection of collectible surprise gifts that draws inspiration from LEGO Star Wars, City and Friends, this year’s LEGO Advent Calendars are now available via shop.LEGO.com and Amazon. Though you might think it’s kind of early for LEGO to offer them to the general public, purchasing them as early as now may perhaps turn out to be a good decision later on. For sure, they will be running out very quickly.

We also saw their official box art images halfway through the year, and this time we now have the whole range of images of this year’s LEGO Advent Calendars, including their product descriptions. Head over to LEGO’s online store for more details, or alternatively, you may also check these sets via Amazon.

The LEGO Advent Calendars are quite popular for their neat microscale builds and tons of unique parts and elements, plus the anticipation of what you’ll going to get is fun in itself. I personally want to bag that cute, little snowboarding BB-8 from the Star Wars Advent Calendar.  It’s kind of neat to see how LEGO manages to include almost all of the most memorable characters and scenes included in two of the most recent Star Wars films – Rogue One and The Force Awakens.
