Thanks to Brothers Brick, we now have a first look at one of Ninjago’s Season 9 tie-in sets – the only LEGO Ninjago Summer set to be put on display at this year’s New York Toy Fair. Though I couldn’t say that I am honestly glad for this, since I was hoping that LEGO will go all out in their entire reveal as they hinted on their NYTF press release. In any case, the LEGO Ninjago Stormbringer (70652) announcement and reveal showcases a new potential of appreciating your LEGO sets’ play features. If you recall, it was reported a week ago that some components of the LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox (17101) will be integrated not just with the Stormbringer, but also with the LEGO City Arctic Exploration Truck (60194), giving both sets some fancy mechanical functions.
With that, the LEGO Ninjago Stormbringer (70652) has been presented at the NYTF for the first time highlighting the abovementioned features. Do take note that the Stormbringer is considered as an add-on to the LEGO Boost (or the other way around depending on how you look at it), and is sold separately. Though the modified Stormbringer + Boost build was featured on the show floor of the NYTF, the guys at the LEGO booth did not discuss the details on how it can be mashed up together, and how and when will the instructions be made available. Furthermore, LEGO’s representatives at that time did not demonstrate how these hybrid features work, which could have been nice to see so we can have an idea on how this integration will actually be like in other future sets.
In any case, here are some of the images posted by Brothers Brick. For more pictures of the LEGO Ninjago Stormbringer (70652) and its Boost integration, visit their website right here.
