    Pretty cool looking! Pretty sure it's genuine, which excites me. If it is a custom, then it's an amazing one that goes above and beyond anything I'd have thought possible.

    I wonder if the Garmadon-like color palette is meaningful or if it's just being used for its general evil vibes. I also wonder how many of these guys there will be... After all, it's normal for Ninjago to have at least five baddie figs each year, and the 2012 sets had 19!

    Nice. My son will like that.

    @Aanchir If this is what I assume is a villain looks like, I can't wait to see what the heroes look like. I heard they also get hair pieces in addition to their masks but that could just be a random rumor. I don't collect Ninjago that much but this might get me to start.

    Possibly the first silver arm ever? Awesome figure!
  • rancorbaitrancorbait Manitoba CanadaMember Posts: 1,850
    I hate it when there is a non-licensed figure that just looks so awesome that I can't help buying it. I fear the rest of the figures from this wave are going to hypnotize my wallet too, its like my wallet has a mind of its's own.

    Nope. Not at all.

    I could see that a cyborg Ninja really has potential to draw kids in... While the entire pirate things with Ninjas just seemed a bit odd.

    LEGO posted on fb a poster with this guy.
    At the bottom there is a code (01) that says 'NINDROID'. :D
  • tmgm528tmgm528 Member Posts: 457
    Well its been a while so a great place to start back!
    It looks quite wonderful to me really! (I always have liked cyborg and cyborg ninjas?!? Mind Blown) I can't really get into Chima because they seem to kiddy, granted Ninjago was marketed towards kids for some reason I loved all of them. (Except some of the final battle sets) Now this appears to be the guy that sells all of these minifigures before anything about them is know. One must wonder how he gets them........

    Pirates vs ninjas is odd, yet cyborg ninjas are completely normal? :-)

    I just hope those arms come as a pair in some figs, or at least available as left and right.
  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 3,741
    It's a cool looking figure, with some great parts that could be re-purposed for other figures. But it still baffles me that someone would pay $50 on ebay to get it 'first', rather than saving the 50, and buying the whole set (probably) that it will end up being in.

    Now one could make a sweet custom figure with a silver arm, a clear blue arm and more silver body parts with some of the Agents villains. So many cyborg parts!

    No, but they have been rumoured for a couple of years.

    Yup!!

    ;-)

    Seriously, though, I am looking at it from a what would get my one test subject excited about a product.
    Cool looking ninja/robots/droids, would have a greater appeal for my kiddo over pirates. That may not be the case with all kids, but I think that slightly futuristic twist would have bigger appeal to the kids in his class/peer set as well. I do not see as much of an appeal with pirates and ninjas together.

    For pirates... I do want to see a twist... not just with Ninjas.
    My son would go nuts over A pirate exploration them with lots of cool hidden features and places where treasure is hidden. Exploring strange islands with cool mythical creatures and hunting for treasure... He would go nuts over such a theme.

    At this point, though, besides Ninjago the releases for next year seem very blah.

    This looks pretty awesome to me. Lego posted a promo pic on Instagram but this is the first I've seen of the actual fig.

    Chima does have some nice animal heads though (the heads, not the head gear). It is a shame they are double sided. But a quick wipe on one side and add them to a plain / monochrome minifig body, they look great as animal people. I would have loved more neutral head gear like the one for S3 gorilla man, rather than the ones with blood and patterns in Chima.
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    ^ This is true, and had Chima been released along side Ninjago instead of clearly meant to be its replacement, it might have done better.

    Or perhaps had Chima been another "realm" or "world" within Ninjago's universe, it would have done better.

    My 7 year old son and most of his friends like the Speedzor things, but the rest of Chima? Not interested. They still play with Ninjago and are eagerly awaiting its return.

    The poster says "Ninjago Rebooted":
    "Excuse me, hello, my Ninja isn't working properly"
    "Have you tried turning it off and back on again?"

    On a more serious note, is this an indication that Chima has more or less failed in it's mandate to replace Ninjago? I had assumed it was the replacement (the kiddy line with mechs and tanks). Or will we be seeing both series run side by side?

    Ninjago was rumoured to come back anyway, so it may well be that Lego had planned a three year cycle for Ninjago, and already had Chima already in the pipeline after Year 1 of Ninjago (recall it wasn't that popular in Year 1). Then they realised how popular Ninjago was in years 2 and 3, so carried on with the planned Chima, with the intention of bringing Ninjago back too. They seem to have brought a lot of Chima out very quickly, especially the small sets introducing many characters quickly. It could well be that they have given us two years worth in just one year.
  • BumblepantsBumblepants DFW/BGMember Posts: 7,335
    ^there have been several reports, albeit vague, indication Chima is a strong seller. We will definitely see both side-by-side next year, we have a large 2014 set list for Chima in the database. I don't see any reason why they can't co-exist, especially since Ninjago is moving into the cyborg direction
  • dannyrwwdannyrww WisconsinMember Posts: 1,395
    I don't see why Chima and Ninjago can't coexist. My daughter likes both...though I wonder if Ninjago is ditching the game aspect . Actually both Ninjago and Chima had difficult to understand game rules. The basic parts...racing spedorz or spinning Ninjas...is easy enough to understand but the rules and cards involved get kind of confusing. When we went to Ninjago tournaments it turend into best of 3 knockdowns and Chima turned into just racing. Meaning the lego employees didn't even get the rules with the cards.
  • TheOneVeyronianTheOneVeyronian Help me, I'm inside the M25! (UK)Member Posts: 1,372
    ^ I say the game card aspect worked better (and was simpler - slightly!) with Ninjago, at least the cards were involved in the main spinner game. The Chima card aspect just seems like a badly thought out add-on, it has absolutely nothing to do with the main Speedor game. Speedorz are much simpler and fun to play if you ditch the cards imo.

    The only nice thing about the Chima cards is the artwork (plus, collect enough and you can play a really crude version of Top Trumps, maybe. Just saying :-) )

    I agree with this wholeheartedly. The Ninjago "Spinjitzu" game always stood out to me as the best integration of toys and cards in any LEGO theme. The Chima cards are really poorly-integrated into Speedorz gameplay, in that the cards and the toys scarcely influence each other. I do think the Speedorz concept is cool, though it has much more of a learning curve than Ninjago spinners.

    From what I understand, Chima was designed to be the 2013 "big bang" theme regardless of what happened to Ninjago, since it was expected to be either downscaled or discontinued completely by this point. I feel like the general assumption that Chima is meant to replace Ninjago has hurt Chima as a theme, but hopefully not beyond recovery.

    I certainly feel that Ninjago and Chima can coexist, but if Ninjago is scaled back up from this year then Chima will probably have to be scaled down accordingly. And that doesn't seem like a tough pill to swallow, given how very expansive Legends of Chima has been this year in terms of sets and media. It can afford to scale things back a whole lot without the risk of losing relevance entirely.

    Don't know if folks already know this, but just saw the new Ninjago kits on Kmart website. Not available for sale, of course.

    ^No watermarks and in public domain, so these should be cleared.

    The hair pieces for Kai, Lloyd and Overborg are some funky ones compared to the normal fare. While Jay and Cole get normal hair just like what they have in the cartoon. And we get both left & right arms in pearl gray. Cole's mech looks pretty weak compared to the excellent Kai mech and Samurai X before it.

    ^^^^ Those pages don't come up for me, they all take me to the Kmart home page - but is that because my computer has a British IP address (and they don't sell to UK customers)? Shame because I would have loved to see them :-(

    (Well, I don't wish to view confidential watermarked pics that are around elsewhere because, to me anyway, that's a bit of a sin!)

    ^ Awesome, thanks for posting that! :-)

    I can't help thinking Thunder Raider has a faint resemblance to #70013 and the Kai Fighter is rather similar to Jay's Storm Fighter (both still looking great though!). The standout set for me though is Overborg Attack, that one takes the biscuit cookie for me :-P

    I have to agree that compared to 2012 line, these sets look rather weak. Honestly 70722 fits better as Kraang's ride in TMNT and Cole's mech is not even comparable to #70500

    True, but this isn't the full line of sets. Zane will almost certainly be in one of those three sets.

    Cole's mech has a pretty lackluster torso design, but its feet, claws/cannons, and cockpit look pretty neat (great use of the LEGO Friends handlebars). Also note the product description: its lack of bulk might be in part because it can attach and detach from Jay's vehicle in the same set. Jay's vehicle, meanwhile, is lovely, and stands out from all previous Ninjago vehicles with its half-track design.

    I like how in 70722, there's a small strip of road acting as a ramp, with a trash can and fire hydrant next to it. Ninjago has a wonderfully anachronistic setting, but the sets have rarely acknowledged this: all buildings and structures have been very "historical fantasy" in their design, rather than contemporary or futuristic. I hope we might see some more substantial structures this year as well!

    I do wish Lloyd's new bike had stickers with some more ornate decorations, like his emblem or some gold accents. This is Lloyd's first vehicle and while it's a nice design, it doesn't feel as magical as many of the others.

    The plane in 70721 is awesome-looking. It doesn't seem to measure up to Jay's Storm Fighter from 2012, but before I can actually evaluate it I'll need to know what play features it might be hiding.

    The new Ninja minifigures look awesome with their hair pieces and masks without full hoods. The torso decorations are also nice, with very textile-looking robes like the Ninja's classic or ZX forms, coupled with elemental patterns that echo their NRG forms. It's nice that Lloyd's in green again... I wonder if he'll ever go "Gold Ninja" the way the other Ninja use their NRG forms, or if that power will be abandoned. The villains look pretty cool, though Cyrus Borg almost looks like he just stepped out of LEGO Agents!

    Also, I just have to say I love the packaging with its emphasis on Zane and the Nindroid blueprints!
