I expect this one might take place around the time of episode 4, as Zane is the only Ninja to appear. Not sure whether we can expect any more shorts; I believe this is the sixth one.
I believe there's only a handful of episodes left; was actually expecting them to be uploaded this week, but sadly it was not the case.
As far as the show, I do enjoy it, some of the seasons are WAY better than others. There are still a number of sets that they could make from the older episodes, I'm still hoping for an Overlord Dragon and Preeminent. And better Skulkin spiders than the one that came on Garmadon's fortress.
I was tempted by a couple of sets in SoG and Hunted, but not enough to pull the trigger and I am looking at a couple of the MotM sets, which may tempt me further.
In fact, shockingly, I've just checked my collection and the last couple of sets I bought were from Hands of Time and TLNM!
In my opinion, the original Ninjago City is the greatest Lego set of all time. The build is so intricate and full of interesting techniques that you can see for yourself how much love and attention was put into it. It’s filled with so many easter eggs and references that will please Lego and Ninjago fans alike. It’s a great value for all the pieces and minifigures that it comes with. I have never taken it off of display since I got it two and a half years ago, because it’s the crown jewel of my Lego collection.
Maybe I’m being a bit hyperbolic about my love for the original set, but needless to say, I had high expectations for the Gardens when rumors for it started to circulate. I thought the leaked pictures looked good already, but I couldn’t make out too many details at that given time. Now that we have these quality pictures of the build and minifigure selection, I’m pleased to say that this a worthy follow-up to what I consider to be the greatest Lego set of all time! I’m also glad to see people being less disappointed with this model than they were with the blurry preliminaries.
While this set doesn’t blow me away like the 2017 model did, I’m still impressed with how vibrant and detailed this one looks. The colors just pop so well and all of the trees look great. It certainly beats the singular tree on the original model. It looks like there’s some pretty cool locations on this model: the Ice Planet Ice Cream shop, Master Chen’s Noodle Shop, the museum, the “ninja zone”, and the Ninjago Fan’s Apartment. This set just packs so much into it that it brings me back to taking in the original set for the first time.
Unpopular opinion here, but I think the minifigure selection here is better than the City or Docks. Here you get the full cast of major characters (the ninja and Wu), some key supporting characters (Misako, Ronin, Clutch Powers, The Mechanic), and plenty of generic civilians. While the lack of certain named characters, like Skylor, Pixal, Cyrus Borg or Dr. Julien, is disappointing, and there are some other puzzling figure decisions, I still really like what we got and prefer the amount of named characters we’re getting here to its sister sets. In those we got two or three characters and maybe one or two other show/movie characters, whereas here we’re getting a majority of recognizable characters.
All in all, I really like this set and am anticipating it more than any other set coming out next year. (So far! )
#71755 Temple of the Endless Sea
#71756 Hydro Bounty
The teal / gold / black colour scheme of the Temple and the white / gold / black of the Bounty look really striking and the sets overall look really fantastic, from a content perspective.
I haven't bought much Ninjago recently, apart from the large Ninjago City sets, though I do still have a few of the "Master of the Mountain" and "The Island" sets on my wishlist, but these will definitely get added as well.
That being said, I quite like the look of the Seabound sets otherwise. Glad Nya FINALLY has her own dragon, and hoping we might see more in the future; her Elemental Dragon could be nice since Legacy is getting closer to the Possession/Skybound period.
Really interesting stuff from the designer of #71756
