With the wide-ranging releases of LEGO sets and minifigures across different themes and licensed franchises, the publishing of supplementary printed material such as visual dictionaries by the likes of Dorling-Kindersley are a godsend to collectors, and also a great source of entertainment especially for fans of the properties depicted within.
Speaking of visual dictionaries and DK, they first published such a volume for the LEGO Ninjago line way back in 2014. In major LEGO book fashion, the Ninjago Visual Dictionary also included a free minifigure in the cover, that of Zane. Now, four years have passed since that first printing, and an update is welcome.
That’s why DK is bringing out a new edition of the LEGO Ninjago Visual Dictionary next year. In 128 pages of glorious color photographs the book will bring LEGO fans and collectors up to speed with the latest releases on the Ninjago line thus far.
In addition to the minifigure and Ninjago set images and info, the visual guide will also include a “Beyond the Brick” section detailing how they were conceptualized and developed. An interview with the Ninjago design team and rare concept sketches and artwork can also be found between the book’s covers.
Dorling-Kindersley expects to have the LEGO Ninjago Visual Dictionary New Edition to be released on bookstores sometime in September of 2019. As expected, it’ll also come with a free minifigure, though for now LEGO is keeping mum on the character’s identity. We’ll have to wait for later info. Preorders are also available on Amazon UK.
