While most fathers all over the world took time off from their usual daddy duties during the past weekend, Warner Bros Animation took it to the Internet to show that Father’s Day is indeed for all dads, even if they are the four-armed, villainous type.
In a Twitter post by LEGO Senior Creative Director Simon Lucas, he shows how the lighter side of Lord Garmadon may look like when he is not out there, busy conquering the rest of the world, as we see him in the LEGO Ninjago Movie.
Accompanied by a greet that comically reads, “Happy Garmadon’s Day”, we then see the film’s main antagonist hanging out in a serene study room, wearing a brown business suit and a tie, and holding a mug with the words “I’m Ninjago’s #1 Dad” written on it. Of course, the reference is clear: Garmadon may be a despicable tyrant, but he is still Lloyd’s dad, and that must be something.
As Brickset pointed out, it will definitely be nice to see this version of Garmadon in its actual minifigure form, perhaps in the upcoming collectible minifigure series tied up with the film. This is a great way to add Garmadon to your collection if you wish to see him away from the action-packed sets of the LEGO Ninjago Movie. As of to date, we only have two distinct versions of the infamous warlord as found in the LEGO Ninjago Movie Master Falls (70608) and Green Ninja Mech Dragon (70612). A slightly modified version of him may also be found in the recently revealed Garma Mecha Man (70613) – previously known to be Garmadon’s Robo Shark – by Belgian online toy store Mister Bricks.
It is exciting to consider the possibility of seeing Garmadon in this not-so-usual minifigure get up if indeed he will be included in the LEGO Ninjago Movie CMF. It’s not a long shot, considering LEGO’s history of introducing wild and wacky minifig characters in its CMF series. After all, who would have thought LEGO will throw in a Fairy Batman collectible minifig as a part of its TLBM CMF? With LEGO, anything goes.
What do you think about this version of Garmadon? Do you wish to see this minifig version of him land a spot in the LEGO Ninjago Movie collectible minifigure series? I would surely love to see that. Let us know in the comments below.
