I'm pretty sure it's not something particularly unique or they'd probably mention it in the product description (as they did with the stickered "Ninjago trading cards" in the market). Cole's been characterized as the team's "big eater", so my best guess is that it might be some assorted LEGO food like cookies, apples, and cheese.
Skylor works at her dad's restaurant now. Really.
1. I don't care at all for ninjago. Don't own any and never wanted to.
2. I have taken a small hiatus from lego, for no particular reason.
I logged onto brickset just to see if anything new or cool was happening. Last set I had bought was the fairground mixer and lord of the rings/hobbit stuff. Then I saw it. My jaw literally flopped open when I saw the new 2,000 piece ninjago set. It looks like my beloved medieval village market place mixed with a castle set mixed with a custom moc.
Final fact: this ninjago set has me, once again, hooked on lego.
Don't get me wrong. I definitely understand what you're saying. Most Ninjago fans are probably younger than this set's recommended age range. But the same could be said for many other themes. And if the posts in this topic are any indication, a lot of AFOLs who don't have any interest in Ninjago otherwise are interested in buying this regardless of the branding on the box.
After buying the set, I'm sure some people will grumble about the Zane minifigure being too sci-fi, but if it really bothers them a lot then it's no trouble to swap the head for a normal yellow minifigure head, or even just put that one minifigure aside — after all, people who aren't invested in the Ninjago characters and story probably aren't going to care too much whether they have five ninja in their display or six.
Not a fan on ninjago but I do like eastern architecture and building styles. Set looks lovely but is a bit expensive. It also does not realy go with anything else but the scenery looks good enough to stand on its own.
This is the first new set that I am seriously considering buying since quiet a while. Bit sad that probably quiet a large part of the budget went into the minifigs and small accesories, they are awesome and all but I also like to see a big and firm building.
Still a very nice set,will help me bridge the time till the next modular comes out.
Thanks for sharing them!
I utterly agree. Pictures do not do this justice. There truly are few sets I look at and WANT. It is not good that this one jumped up there, because now there are two large sets I want.... this and my ferris wheel. This means the mixer is probably off my list.
Oh goodness. I did not see the above pictures. Those look wonderful together.Flip. Now I want battle for Ninjago city. :-(
I saw someone on Facebook photograph the Temple of Airjitzu with these Tr. Light Blue window panes scattered in the open space in the center. It looked really beautiful and matched the Medium Azur water plates on either side of the bridge quite nicely. For those who plan to make a permanent display space for this set it could be a good technique to keep in mind, although it could be inconvenient for those who plan to turn the set around every now and then to check out the shadow puppet theater. If you'd prefer a more conventional base, there's always the option of buying some more Medium Azur and Sand Yellow plates from Bricklink.
I wish there were actual spots for some of the loose accessories though. In particular, the stool and palette don't really connect anywhere, nor does the tea set. I'm okay with the paint brush being in the cup, and with the flowers in the bowl on the tea set, but loose pieces always make it a pain to move to something to me.
Battle for Ninjago City mod :
With the new style printing it is easier to see the numbers on the bags, in contrast to the bricks inside. Therefore I think it's obvious why they went with this design.
Furthermore an excellent review @CapnRex101! After reading it, I'm even more excited about the set.
Question about it though, does the bridge not connect at any point? Best I can tell it just kind of rests there between the two smaller buildings.
I will upload more photos by next week.
