A couple of days ago, images of the next wave of LEGO Ninjago sets made its way online via Amazon France. Apparently, one particular set has been left out by the site which can now be found (yes, you guessed it right) at Italian toy and hobby retailer shop, Radio Kontrol.
The LEGO Ninjago Dieselnaut (70654) is a tank-like build that seems to have come from a LEGO movie version of Mad Max. It comes equipped with a minifig-scaled cockpit, and a platform that can be used to mount additional minifigs. It also has 2 revolving turrets equipped with spring-loaded shooters, a holding area for captured enemies, a crane function and a hidden compartment to stack up weapons. The set also comes with a buildable statue where the Dragon Armor resides.
The set comes with a rather interesting set of minifigures that gives us a hint that there might be some sort of a time skip/travel involved in LEGO Ninjago’s Season 9 storyline. There are a total of 7 minifigures included in this set which includes a teenage version of Master Wu, Jay, Zane, and a host of scary-sounding villains such as the Iron Baron, Heavy Metal, Muzzle, and Skullbreaker.
Here’s a brief description of the set as Google-translated from Italian.
LEGO Ninjago Dieselnaut (70654)

Take your weapons and join the fight with Young Wu, Jay and Zane. Avoid the Dieselnaut’s spring-loaded shooter and crane. You absolutely must not be caught in the prison of this monstrous vehicle!
