Quite recently, the now long-running LEGO Ninjago line has introduced a “Legacy” subtheme celebrating how many years the franchise in all its various forms has entertained the fandom. As part of the Ninjago Legacy product release, a new minifigure character pod has been made available for collectors at year’s end. Following in the steps of previous LEGO Ninjago pods, there is now a Lloyd’s Kendo Training Pod (853899) just released on LEGO Shop@Home. Like its Ninjago-themed product brethren, the pod has been stylized with a lenticular character face, in this case, Lloyd, and also includes his minifigure plus accessories for kendo training, such as weapons and slip-on armor pieces.
Thus far, four LEGO Ninjago pods have been released, the first being a tie-in to 2017’s The LEGO Ninjago Movie: Kai’s Dojo Pod (5004916). Of the other three, one – Zane’s Kendo Training Pod (5005230) – has been a promotional item thus far, while Jay’s Kendo Training Pod (853758) and Cole’s Kendo Training Pod (853759) are both still conventionally available on LEGO Shop@Home.
The Ninjago Legacy Lloyd’s Kendo Training Pod (853899) is priced at $8.99 and has 25 pieces inside its container pod. It’s a great tribute to the longevity of LEGO Ninjago.
