2012 LEGO sets: LEGO NINJAGO

by admin on September 15, 2011

in LEGO Ninjago

Are you impatiently and curiously waiting to see what 2012 will bring in the world of LEGO? In this series of posts I will give you a glimpse of some of the upcoming 2012 LEGO sets.

You might first want to check out 2012 LEGO Sets – See What’s Coming! That post will give you an overall picture of the 2012 LEGO sets. From there you can link to the particular themes you are interested in.

In this post I will list all of the sets in the LEGO NINJAGO theme. Please note that the images are not yet available, so I will describe them here as much as I can to give you a sense of what the sets look like. And if you are interested in the current selection of LEGO NINJAGO sets go here: LEGO NINJAGO

There is an overall new angle on the 2012 LEGO NINJAGO sets; the badguys are not skeletons, but snake-people. There are some amazing new minifig headgear, armor pieces, accessories and really cool lime-green cobras. One other nice piece is a 1×2 brick with brick-like façade. City and castle builders will love this!

There are 7 new sets revealed, 8 new spinners, 3 booster packs. The spinners themselves have an unusual attachment or insert – I’m not sure what purpose it serves; maybe it makes the minifigs more stable in the spinners? 😕

2012 LEGO NINJAGO Sets: (UPDATE! New NINJAGO pictures here!)

  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9440: small set with white ninja, and what looks like a snake-shrine with lime-green cobras and some of those new 1x2s with the brick façade.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9441: giant red motorcycle with red ninja and one light-gray snake-guy.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9442: small blue jet (I assume it belongs to the blue snake-people, although I’m not positive). This set also has a small snake-shrine.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9443: lime-green helicopter of the snake-people. Spits out lime-green cobras. This set also includes one red ninja, and another guy in a black hood.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9444: black and yellow 4-wheel vehicle. I assume it belongs to the ninjas, because it is after a blue snake-guy minifigs with long tail instead of legs.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9445: lime-green 4-wheel vehicle with a scary snake front and long fangs. Also includes a white ninja on a small Star Wars-like speeder.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9446: (this is the largest set in this series) red and black ninja ship, with Sensei Wu, a couple of ninjas in kendo armor, and blue snake-people minifigs.

2012 LEGO NINJAGO Spinners: (UPDATE! Spinner pictures here!)

  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9558: red ninja with dark-gray kendo helmet and samurai armor (from previous years). This set also comes with a small spinner arena set-up.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9561: Kai ZX – red ninja uniform, gold shoulder armor, new red ninja-hood, gold weapon, orange spinner.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9562: Lasha (snake-guy) – lime body with red print, lime head, lime cobra-hood headgear, gold weapon, purple spinner.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9563: Kendo Zane – white ninja uniform, dark-gray kendo helmet, samurai armor, gold weapon, white spinner.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9564: Snappa (snake-guy) – white body with red print, red head, snake-head attachment, gold spear, lime spinner.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9566: Samurai – red samurai uniform, dark gray samurai helmet (the old kind but with attached face-mask!), samurai armor, gold katana, dark-gray spinner.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9567: Fang-Suei (snake-guy) – white body with red print, red snake head (not a regular minifig head), gold whip, red spinner.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9579: (includes 2 minifigs) black ninja with new ninja-hood, new shoulder armor, gold weapon, green spinner & light-gray snake-guy with black head, gray cobra-hood headgear, gold weapons.

2012 LEGO NINJAGO Booster Packs:

  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9551: Kendo Cole – (black ninja uniform), weapons and cards.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9552: Lloyd Gamadon – (I’m not sure if this is a misprint for Lord Garmadon, or if it is a new character), weapons and cards.
  • LEGO NINJAGO Set #9553: Jay-ZX – (blue ninja uniform), weapons and cards.

And that is the 2012 news for LEGO NINJAGO! Although I find the whole theme rather confusing (ninjas and choppers, and snake people???), but it seems it is popular with kids. I do find the theme exciting for all the minifig accessories and other unique elements, so I will definitely get some.

How do you like the new LEGO NINJAGO sets? Let me know what you think! 😉

the “hooded person” is lord garmadon from what i heard- his son is the leader bad guy. this may be wrong, if it is,please tell.

admin September 15, 2011 at 5:16 PM

Yes, I think so. And what is your opinion of the booster pack (#9552)? It says the minifig is Lloyd Gamadon. Do you think this is a different character, or a misprint? 😕

toy September 15, 2011 at 5:37 PM

well, someone from youtube at a comment said he had a son ( by the way, here it is-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSlNmm2ccCE).

I see what you mean. He also says that Garmadon turns good and they are all fighting the snake people. Interesting…

LetgoLego December 27, 2011 at 6:08 AM

toy- your right. in the animated clips Garmadon has a son- ‘Lloyd Garmadon’ who demands candy from the villagers, then stubles across the hometomb of the Serpentine and controls them after getting the general to hypnotise himself (a mirror was used) then he builds a huge treehouse and the general hypnotises Cole

So why are all the pictures I’ve seen so far from Poland? 🙂 No one else gets catalogs? or are they just the first? Oh well, at least I can understand bits and pieces…

Reply

admin September 16, 2011 at 8:43 AM

Steph, this is a toy catalog, going out to toy retailers. It is not something the public supposed to see. From all those who get the catalog, you would need a person who is really into LEGO, who is aware of what future set pictures means to fans, and who is bold enough to post them online. I mean, they could loose their resale rights with LEGO over this! Actually it is most likely not the owner of the retail store, but probably one of the persons working there. He/she would loose his job over this, if found out. So, how many people would risk all of that? 😡

lord Garmadons son is named Loyd Garmadon and he seems to be sided with the ninjas because he feels bad about letting the snakes out.

who is the green ninja?

Reply

admin December 24, 2011 at 5:28 PM

Hamzah, so sorry, your comment somehow got caught in my spam-filter. The green ninja’s identity is still shrouded in mystery. However there is a spinners set amongst the summer 2012 sets, called Lloyd ZX, and it shows the green ninja in the package. The set number is #9574. Here is the video of the 2012 summer Ninjago spinners: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96a8K5Gg9gY

Legoroahn, yes, we have all the 2012 Ninjago sets here in the USA. I don’t know why you guys don’t have them. Maybe call LEGO and ask them when they will be released in your country. 😕

admin December 28, 2011 at 10:02 PM

UPDATE: I’m doing a little bit of house-keeping around the website. I moved all NINJAGO related posts (except sales that will remain in the Sales & Deals section) over to its own category, so you guys can find them easier. You can now find all NINJAGO posts under the NINJAGO heading in the left-hand-side navigational panel under LEGO Brand Products. I hope this helps some to get around better. 🙂

I know most of you have seen them already, but I will start posting further episodes of LEGO NINJAGO Rise of the Snakes, starting with Episode 3 tomorrow, so you guys can continue your discussions on the mysteries of NINJAGO right here at theBrickBlogger. 😉

Jessica, the Green Ninja will be released this summer. Definitely in a spinner set, and probably also some regular sets. So just hang in there! 😉

It’s strange, reading this in 2015, now that the 5th season in almost over, and the 6th season is looming ever closer – it feels kind of nice to look back.

Yeah, lots of nostalgia coming back to an older discussion like this! 🙂
