Over the weekend we got word about a new LEGO Pod featuring Zane from LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu – Sons of Garmadon (5005230). Needless to say, LEGO has a whole lot more where that came from in terms of brand new LEGO Ninjago stuff set to come out this 2018.
Case in point, we now have two more polybags in the LEGO Ninjago line for avid collectors to snap up. One is a standard play set with two minifigures, a mini-structure, and props galore. The other is a set that the player directly interacts with.
As reported by The Brick Fan, the first is the LEGO Ninjago WU-CRU Target Training (30530) which is a fairly basic set featuring characters Lloyd Garmadon and Nya in WU-CRU garb, practicing target training. It bears a close resemblance to the LEGO Ninjago WU-CRU Traning Dojo (30424) polybag released in 2016. The target’s a dartboard suspended in a Japanese mon/gate frame that they’re trying to hit with shuriken, though they’ve also got a spear and sword to spar with. It is also interesting to note that having Nya and Lloyd in this particular polybag now completes the ninja’s roster in their new training garb: with Kai in Kai’s Dojo Pod (5004916), Zane in Zane’s Kendo Training Pod (5005230), and Jay and Cole in their black outfits with Jay (853758) and Cole (853759) Dojo Pods.
Next up is the LEGO Ninjago Training Kit (5005231) set. As stated earlier, it’s unique in that the LEGO player himself actually manipulates the set as part of Ninjago training. From the polybag illustration, it seems to involve stacking bricks of different shapes and sizes.
From a certain point of view the whole exercise looks like a round of LEGO Jenga with a Ninjago twist. After all, the player in the illustration was doing his stacking with a pair of chopsticks. Also included are a Lord Garmadon mini-standee and a shuriken, probably the standee’s base.
They’re due to come out anytime soon, so it won’t be long until we get down to the finer details of both; we hope you’ll stick around here at The Brick Show.
