LEGO NINJAGO 2012 – NRG Ninja pictures!

There is something strange that supposed to happen to the four main characters of LEGO NINJAGO as the story of “NINJAGO – Rise of the Snakes” unfolds. This is evident from the NEW YORK toy-fair images.

NRG Ninja circled in red...

Kai, Jay, Zane and Cole will morph into their NRG state (which, according to some sources, refers to “energy”).  So we will have an NRG Kai, and NRG Jay, an NRG Zane and an NRG Cole. (Yeah, we already had plain ninja, DX ninja, ZX ninja, and now NRG ninja. If you are a collector of them all, I feel sorry for your wallet!) 

These are the first images of these special forms of the NINJAGO characters from the New York toy-fair; thanks to ASMzine.com, a HASBRO fan-site that has been covering the toy-fair since the year 2000. Enjoy! 😛

LEGO NINJAGO Red Ninja: Kai – “Ninja of Fire” – in his NRG form:


LEGO NINJAGO Blue Ninja: Jay – “Ninja of Lightning” – in his NRG form:


LEGO NINJAGO White Ninja: Zane – “Ninja of Ice” – in his NRG form:


LEGO NINJAGO Black Ninja: Cole – “Ninja of Earth” – in his NRG form:


LEGO NINJAGO Green Ninja – added him for good measure… 😉

LEGO NINJAGO - Green Ninja

I like the Green Ninja, but the NRG form of the four other ninja looks pretty evil to me. I don’t know if this is going to be the final design, or if LEGO is still working on them. Let me know in the comment section below what you think of them all! 😉

    Do you think NRG means energy?

  • admin February 15, 2012, 10:40 AM

    Master Spinner, as I say in the post, yeah, that’s NRG seems to refer to according to some fairly reliable sources. 😉

  • darkon February 15, 2012, 11:36 AM

    NRG means ENERGY. And these guys look awesome!!! They’re like NinjaGo Gods!!!

  • MASTER SPINNER February 15, 2012, 12:09 PM

    I posted before I read the stuff admin so I didn’t no.

  • admin February 15, 2012, 12:58 PM

    No problem, Master Spinner! 😉

  • MASTER SPINNER February 15, 2012, 1:05 PM

    Can you tell us the story and what happened admin?

  • admin February 15, 2012, 1:39 PM

    Master Spinner, appearently the four ninja achieve their full potential and take on the form of pure energy! 😯

  • Nunchaku February 15, 2012, 1:43 PM

    Whoa, what happened to their faces?! :0

  • Kai ZX February 15, 2012, 1:57 PM

    cole has lava (fire)

  • George Barnick (Meiko) February 15, 2012, 2:48 PM

    Wow. These look exceptionally good. My brother Aanchir went to Toy Fair New York to cover new Ninjago sets an other stuff for The Ninjago Wiki (ninjas.brickcraft.me), but his pictures weren’t as good as these.

  • kai zx February 15, 2012, 3:15 PM

    Admin can you send kai zx’s head

    also nrg ninja’s look kind of ugly no offense

  • lowfatlego February 15, 2012, 3:17 PM

    i think they look this way because in the show sensi wu says they have to unlock their golden wepon so they look like this maybe because they unlocked their golden wpons.

  • admin February 15, 2012, 3:18 PM

    Kai, I agree that they look pretty weird. Messy paint-job, weird faces, and all. 😯
    I’m not sure what you mean by sending Kai ZX’s head. 😕

  • admin February 15, 2012, 3:20 PM

    Yes, that is likely, but I’m not sure if they knew how ugly they will look once they unlock their weapons. Will Nia still like Jay after his transformation? 🙄

  • George Barnick (Meiko) February 15, 2012, 3:23 PM

    Remember that these minifigs are preliminary. The paint job will look better when it is done by LEGO’s regular painting machines.

  • admin February 15, 2012, 3:26 PM

    Meiko, I just wish Kai’s face would show better! I checked out your Ninjago Wiki, it is so much better than the terribly bloated Brickipedia! Keep up the good work! 🙂

  • admin February 15, 2012, 3:26 PM

    Meiko, I hope so! 😮

  • George Barnick (Meiko) February 15, 2012, 4:03 PM

    As soon as they’re announced in the story, I’ll add it to our wiki. I’ll find the best image I can.

    Also, these guys remind me of when Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender goes into the Avatar state. 😛

  • dramaticplastic February 15, 2012, 4:13 PM

    HAHA! Is it me, or do the ZX and NRG versions look less and less like ninja and more like power rangers?? Oh well, I might take a liking to them, we’ll see. Does anybody know if the green ninja minifigure will come in different forms? (Normal, DX, or NRG)
    PS – nice blog

  • darkon February 15, 2012, 5:06 PM

    The ninja become NRG ninja by mastering their elemental powers and unlockiing their full potential. Also they don’t look ugly, they look like fricking Elementals or even Titans! I love these guys!!! Also I wanted to remind everyone that episode 6 is on tonight at 8pm. Don’t miss it! 😀

  • Nunchaku February 15, 2012, 5:11 PM

    What happens to Sensei Wu in the NRG series?

  • Nunchaku February 15, 2012, 5:16 PM

    Do their golden weapons give them any power anymore?

  • admin February 15, 2012, 6:21 PM

    Thanks, Darkon! I don’t think the idea of the NRG ninja is bad, it is just the minifigs need some work. At least that’s what I think. 😉
    Like the light-blue Zane is really cool, but why does he has white hands? Is he wearing gloves? 😕
    The one I like the most is Cole. He looks like a volcano erupting! Looks awesome! 😀

  • Becky February 15, 2012, 6:43 PM

    My son is very HAPPY with all of them!! He wants to know what the name of the green ninja is????

  • MASTER SPINNER February 15, 2012, 7:38 PM

    The green ninjas name is Lloyd garmadon If you
    go to http://www.lego.com/ninjago go look around.

  • MASTER SPINNER February 15, 2012, 8:25 PM

    Admin can you shoe us the snake spinners for this summer?

  • Tydroid February 15, 2012, 8:53 PM

    Thanks Admin! In your last ninjago post (Ninjago 2012 set pictures)
    I commented for you to get some pictures of this and here they are! Thanks! I personally think Cole looks a litte better, his old forms eyes were OBNOXIOUS in my opinion! Well, I guess thats just my Opininion, tell me yours![:D]

  • ste... February 15, 2012, 8:54 PM

  • admin February 16, 2012, 10:16 AM

    Master Spinner, that is a great suggestion! I will do it ASAP. There is a lot of news to cover so it may take a few days, but I will do it. 🙂

  • admin February 16, 2012, 10:19 AM

    Tydroid, yes, I did it by your request. I was surprized nobody else posted them before! They are the most important characters after all! 🙂
    I like Cole the most too. He looks like an erupting volcano! 😈

  • admin February 16, 2012, 10:19 AM

    Ste, the photos are from the New York toy fair. 😉

  • admin February 16, 2012, 10:21 AM

    No, not evil. Just very-very powerful! 😮

  • admin February 16, 2012, 10:29 AM

    Kai, unfortunately that is the best photo I have right now. He was just in the wrong angle. As soon as I get a better one I will post it. 🙂

  • MASTER SPINNER February 16, 2012, 1:13 PM

    Can you also try to Find the bootserpacks?

  • George Barnick (Meiko) February 16, 2012, 2:34 PM

    You can find them at common retail stores like Wal-Mart, Target, Toys “R” Us, etc. They are also available at LEGO Brand Stores. They could possibly be at a local toy store as well.

  • Tydroid February 16, 2012, 7:20 PM

    Yeah admin evil: POWER!!!!!!!!!!! 😀

  • Tydroid February 16, 2012, 7:20 PM

  • thomas February 17, 2012, 12:06 PM

  • admin February 17, 2012, 12:14 PM

    Thomas, it very well could be they can power up and down. Like your way of putting it! 😀

  • Brady February 17, 2012, 12:56 PM

    when are the nrg ninjas coming out and were

  • Joe February 18, 2012, 1:33 PM

    like admin said during the summer and at the regular stores and websites

  • Midnightdude February 18, 2012, 4:54 PM

    I love the NRG ninjas. I don’t understand why they changed the color of Zane’s suit though. At first I saw the green ninja fight scene (I stumbled across it on YouTube). After it was revealed that Lloyd was in fact, the green ninja, and the green ninja has long legs, I didn’t understand. Also I knew he couldn’t be older because Zane was there and he hadn’t changed a bit! But 2 things led me to thinking he must be.
    1: The scene was actually Zane’s dream (I didn’t see the full episode at first)
    2: The ninjas get a new variation that could mean they will be older by the time he becomes a ninja
    Oh, and Lloyd, he looks quite cool as the green ninja, but for some reason I didn’t want it to be him (Just my opinion:P)

  • NRG Cole February 18, 2012, 5:25 PM
  • admin February 18, 2012, 6:13 PM

    Oh, thanks you Cole, much obliged! We have been waiting for this for so long! I will upload it here tomorrow morning. Thanks again! 😀

  • green ninja dude February 19, 2012, 1:35 AM

    Yay thanks admin your finally posting the next episode I have seen it but I would love to read about it yeah it there was a readin competion then I would get first place baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LegoGal February 19, 2012, 10:02 AM

    I really wish you could see the NRG ninja’s faces. They all look pretty evil to me, but their spinners look awesome! I wish they’d come out sooner.

  • admin February 19, 2012, 10:19 AM

    UPDATE: Episode 6 of NINJAGO Rise if the Snakes is now posted! See here: NINJAGO RISE OF THE SNAKES – THE SNAKE KING Enjoy! 😉

  • green ninja dude February 19, 2012, 11:55 AM

  • admin February 19, 2012, 9:17 PM

    Wonder, there are no pictures yet. Only rumors. 😉

  • sawyer February 20, 2012, 7:57 AM

    I don’t really like them cause they gave them totally different suits and weapons.

  • wonder???????????? February 20, 2012, 11:55 AM

    and what will the nrg ninjas look like in the movie?

  • wonder???????????? February 20, 2012, 12:04 PM

    also why would lloyd become the green ninja because the movie prophice says one ninja will rise above the others and become the green ninja and defeat the dark lord (lord garmadon) why would lloyd defeat his father

  • wonder???????????? February 20, 2012, 12:05 PM

    also why would lloyd become the green ninja because the movie prophice says one ninja will rise above the others and become the green ninja and defeat the dark lord (lord garmadon) why would lloyd defeat his father ?

  • NRG Cole February 20, 2012, 12:16 PM

    dark lord may be pythore

  • darkon February 20, 2012, 12:16 PM

    The prophecy said “One Ninja” not “One of the four Ninjas”. Also it said “Dark Lord” not “Lord Garmadon”. Thirdly, Lloyd isn’t evil. Luke never had a problem with fighting his father. “Obi-wan never told you what happened to your father, did he?” Lord Vader “He told me my dad went out for Chinese food and never came back.” Luke 😀

  • Man of Ninjago! February 20, 2012, 11:02 PM

    Episode 7 says Zane unlocks his past and full potential

  • Man of Ninjago! February 20, 2012, 11:10 PM

    Whutttt NRG Zane in September??? WHY!!!!!

  • ninjago February 21, 2012, 9:56 AM

    more wierd aspecali cole

  • Luca February 23, 2012, 9:01 AM

    If the NRG ninjas are them with their full potential, why isn’t Zane NRG at the end of episode 7???

  • lowfatlego February 23, 2012, 11:31 AM

    can some one please put up a link forepisode 7, I missed it yesterday

  • Jay Zx February 23, 2012, 2:58 PM

    Admin, please tell me you don’t think that Lloyd is the green ninja… It can’t be him, we all know that… Do you???

  • zane February 23, 2012, 6:47 PM

    why September for NRG Zane he’s my favorite (behind green ninja (lloyd garmadon)) plus i’m gonna be 15 minutes away from a lego store.

  • zane February 23, 2012, 6:50 PM

    my third favorite is pythor

  • None February 23, 2012, 9:04 PM

    He is a NinDroid.

  • green ninja dude February 23, 2012, 11:38 PM

    Hey you remember that time I asked if they were human well Zane is not even if he is not in his NRG form and geuss what…ZANE IS A ROBOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • green ninja dude February 23, 2012, 11:44 PM

    Oh maybe the dark lord is Pythor because last night I had a dream of episode 12-13 where garmadon (with four arms) helps the ninja defeat the great devourer and eventully is abled to shrink the snake back to its original state and then the dream goes to after that and have them all do peaceful stuff that I don’t get why I made that part because I dout they even do the stuff I dreamed up and it all goes crazy from there.

  • green ninja dude February 23, 2012, 11:45 PM

    Oh I forgot to mention the snake is the reason why garmadons evil.

  • green ninja dude February 23, 2012, 11:46 PM

    Wait now think of it how come I never notice the reply button.

  • green ninja dude February 23, 2012, 11:47 PM

    Yes it does reply.

  • green ninja dude February 23, 2012, 11:49 PM

    Yes he is truely the green ninja the entire wikia believes that too but now to think of it lord gamadon doesn’t return he is found by sensei wu with four arms!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
