Following the reveal of the LEGO Ninjago Summer sets and the highly anticipated LEGO Ninjago Movie Ninjago City Docks (70657), it looks like we have another mech-type set under the Ninjago theme. Said to be spotted first at LEGOLAND Billund, the LEGO Ninjago Oni Titan (70658) borrows several aesthetic features from the Garma Mecha Man (70613), but with a more balanced look. However, I’m still kind of frustrated on why LEGO still insist on building those knees in such an uninspiring manner.
Anyways, the LEGO Ninjago Oni Titan is expected to be a part of the summer wave of sets that represents the upcoming Season 9 of the TV series which have dragons as one of its central themes. We don’t have a piece count yet, but based on its size in proportion to the four minifigures included with it, the build seems to stand around the same height as that of Garma Mecha Man, but relatively smaller as compared to the Fire Mech (70615).
Save for the legs and knees, the upper part of the build is pretty impressive. I like how intimidating the face of the Oni Titan looks like, especially its purplish, sinister looking eyes. Its dark bluish gray colors also give it a nefarious feel, heightened by its overbearing katana and oversized knuckles.
Though the LEGO Ninjago Oni Titan (70658) was first spotted at LEGOLAND Billund, rumor has it that it will be a Walmart exclusive starting in May when the rest of the theme’s summer wave of sets are released. Will keep you posted once official images of this set is out. Thanks to Brickset forum members for sharing this image, with additional reporting from The Brick Fan.
