We have talked about the exciting LEGO Ninjago summer sets coming out later this year. You can see the full review with lots of details, pictures and prices here: LEGO NINJAGO Summer Sets, LEGO NINJAGO Summer – More Pictures! You can also check out the super-special NRG ninja spinners, also coming out later in the year: NRG Ninja Pictures!
In this post I will share with you some video-reviews of the Ninjago summer sets to give you a better idea about their details and functions. I guess this would be the next best thing besides seeing them personally! The videos are from the New York toy fair, taken by FBTB.net. Enjoy! 😀
➡ #9448 LEGO NINJAGO Samurai Mech – Includes Samurai-X mech, a small snake-catapult to launch the 2 snakes that appear in the set, and 3 minifigures: Samurai X, Bytar and Snike. Check out that cannon on the shoulder of the Samurai mech! This thing is armed to the teeth! 😛
➡ #9449 LEGO NINJAGO Ultra Sonic Raider – In the amazing Ultra Sonic Raider, the Spinjitzu masters spot supreme leader Pythor and his protector Spitta, soldier of the Venomari tribe, taking off with the Fangpyre fang blade. Chase them across everything with the all-terrain tracks or detach the flying vehicle, extend the golden blade wings and take the battle to the skies! If all else fails, crank up the huge speaker cannons and tame the snakes with some ancient snake music. Don’t let them get away! Includes 6 minifigures: Cole ZX, Jay ZX, Kai ZX, Zane ZX, Pythor and Spitta. Set includes Ultra Sonic Raider, Fangpyre fang-blade with red anti-venom capsule, 4 golden weapons and 5 regular weapons. Check out all the cool features of the ultimate ninja vehicle! 🙂
➡ #9450 LEGO NINJAGO Epic Dragon Battle – The epic battle of good versus evil has begun! The Great Devourer has been awakened and threatens to devour the world of Ninjago. Can the legendary green ninja, riding the awesome 4-headed Ultra Dragon, overpower this evil adversary? Can Lord Garmadon harness the power of the 4 golden weapons of Spinjitzu to destroy the mighty snake? And what about Sensei Wu? Can Jay defeat the evil snake King Pythor and his Generals Acidicus, Skalidor and snake soldier Chokun to release his master from the impenetrable snake prison? Includes 8 minifigures: Lloyd ZX, Jay ZX, Sensei Wu, Lord Garmadon, Acidicus, Skalidor and Chokun. Set features 4-headed Ultra Dragon, The Great Devourer, snake prison, Hypnobrai fang blade with blue anti-venom capsule, 4 golden weapons, and 7 regular weapons. An epic LEGO set with an epic battle! Just look at that four-headed dragon! 🙄
It seems like Ninjago is getting better and better, or crazier and crazier – depending on you point of view. It is certainly full of unusual surprizes! What do you think? If you would like to see more about the LEGO Ninjago summer sets check here:

OMG!!!! I want NRG Kai,Cole,Zane,And Jay!!!!!!!!!!!! So Freaking BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!!!!!!!!!
When I first heard LEGO was going to do a ninja theme, I was really excited. But when I first saw images for Ninjago, I will say I was pretty disappointed. Although none of the sets I purchased I felt were poorly designed, I wanted something like the 1998 Ninja line. Fourtunatly, there were some sets that tried to look historical or mythical (the dragons) so I was not too disappointed. Looking at the 2012 sets, I find it interesting that my favorite is in fact the samurai mech. I do like the dragon battle also. Two other little blurbs I’ll state: I do not know why the green ninja is so revered. They only reason any LEGO fan I know of would think a green Ninja would be special is because their hoods are extremely expensive on bricklink. Second I was upset to see that there were no new sets that came with the tailed snake people that were less expensive than Cole’s Tread assault. $40 is quite a bit for a set that you just want one part of a minifigure from. Hopefully, in may go on clearance like the some of the older Ninjago sets did last year.
Jacob, thanks for the thoughtful review! Please keep in mind that Ninjago is targeting young kids. For them them whole suspense of who is the Green Ninja is very exciting. Just read their comments on the Ninjago post here; the suspense is killing them! 🙄
For adult fans, or fans of traditional ninja, some of the sets can be very pleasing, the others can be a complete confusion. In fact, most adults can’t relate to Ninjago at all. But still, they may find some elements or minifigs from the sets desirable. So it just depends on taste. The snake-generals are pretty awesome, and if you want’ to get them your best resource is probably going to be BrickLink. 🙂
I love the progression from nature (dragons) to mechanical (boats/planes etc) to then a mixture of both (Mecha!).
A wonderful slice of Japanese cultural influence.
I’m looking forward to the Summer sets but, still, I miss the dragons 🙁
the ultra sonice radir is really cool and so it the samurai mech!! I’m not into four-headed dragons, thought.
–google ron paul–
so u dont want green ninja
I saw episode 8 last night. I was pretty good. Next week’s episode will be even better with Sensei Wu and Lord Garmadon having to work together to get through The Mountains of Madness! I loved it when the Venomari sprayed venom over everyone. “That Venomari venom is powerful stuff!” Jay 😀
Also, why do people turn into green snakes when bitten by fangpyre? Shouldn’t they become red, like the rest of the fangpyre actually are?
Darkon, that is a really good question, and I have been wondering about that myself. 😕
we dont know, we have only seen the first part of the transformation. they may turn red later on
That’s a good point. Although it seems like the vehicles have been staying green when they are fully transformed. 😕
Yeah, and in episode 8 aswell after jay pokes himself on the fang it drips some vemon and a fly drinks it. And it turns into a snake and it turns green.
Evan, that’s a good point too! I forgot about the fly! 🙂
yeh, it seems like they stay green. Although it is weird.
Tell Me about it 🙁
they turn into a snake not a ceirtan tribe
Hey, Dakron which summer set you want for Christmas? Mine is Ultra Sonic Raider.
But admin, we all know the green ninja is. 🙂
yup we all do
And why do they grow tails? None of the snakemen have tails except the generals, but their tales are generated by the staffs. “What’s the matter? Snake bite your tongue?” Pythor
Darkon, that’s a good point too. I don’t think LEGO was expecting NINJAGO-fans to dicect every little detail, so probably just went with something that was funny, not necessarily what was logical. 😉
I think those things on the back of thier hats are suppposde to be ‘tails’ – not kidding!!! So it would make sense for the general to have a longer tail. And lego had to make some snakes that would fit in spinners.
–google ron paul–
Nrg Cole, I dont have that much money! 😛
I think the generals should come in SOME smaller sets, right now I only have Skales, And im on a hunt to get all the generals! My wallet is gonna be thin……:P 🙁
Yeah, very-very thin! And who knows what awesomeness will Season 3 bring? 🙄
Yeah,I what to get all of the staffs, generals, fang blades, and characters. But my parents are wanting me to save money for “Other Stuff”.
I have the same problem. I have to save the same amount I spend. 🙁
but at least I’m not trying to collect all the generals!!! 😉
i will get most of them
Who knew the ultra sonic raider was ALSO a ship? i thought it was a two person ninja tank!
plane not ship
have you guys seen episode 11 in korean, its my fav episode
Where did you find it!!!!:)
We found it !!!!!! Although like episode 10 better, it was cool. Only the second part worked (although I was able to watch all the episodes until then) but I should be able to see it today – if it works.
send me a link
how do you get it
I’ll try to post the link here but it might take me a while.
Here it is (thanks NRG cole):
OK, i posted it but you will have to wait.
The videos do not allways work, by the way. 🙁
Lloyd is short even while he is the green ninja!!!! So I was right!!!!!!
🙂 🙂 😉
google lego ninjago episode 11 in korean and you will get it off youtube, that way it allways works.
are there episode 12 and 13 in korean yet
no, at least I haven’t seen any.
Cole, you are the expert at finding episodes! 😆
I’m now starting to think Lloyd is the green ninja.. it says: Includes 8 minifigures: LLOYD ZX, Jay ZX, Sensei Wu, Lord Garmadon, Acidicus, Skalidor and Chokun. Set features 4-headed Ultra Dragon, The Great Devourer, snake prison, Hypnobrai fang blade with blue anti-venom capsule, 4 golden weapons, and 7 regular weapons. It says LLOYD ZX!!!
Trista, there is a Lloyd ZX Green Ninja spinner also. 😉
Lloyd is deffinantly the green ninja. In episode 11 he is obviously green.
plus he has the green 5 on him he is the green ninja 🙁
have you heard about mba level 3 ” frog power”http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=thebrickblogger&loc=en_US
i ment http://thebrickblogger.com/2012/03/lego-mba-level-3/
who else thought is was hillarous when Nuckal said ninjago in episode 11?? 🙂
What Did he Say???
how do you know
I saw it in korean and they say ninja go in korean just like in english.
Hi Admin! I just wanted to ask you if there is a season 3 because if the ninjas reach their full potential, what more is there to do?
Zane, that is a really good question. I guess challenges and missions don’t have to stop just because someone reaches their full potential. Or maybe they will become masters and have their own students? 😕
that is a good question. After all, how long can you keep getting better?? Not only is there a seaon three, but there is also a season four!!! It is interesting that the last episode of season three is The Ultimate Spinjitzu Masters
notice its masters, as in more than one
right. So it couldn’t be talking about just Wu.
Even if there are new enemies, they should be easy to defeat.
Yeh. At least in theory. Though something will get in the way, I’m sure.
what does gid stand for
geneva isaiah Durand. that may be wierd but I originally shareda lego ID with my bro whose name is Isaiah. So that is the reason for the I and I have used the name ever since.
Awesome Green Ninja (Me).
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVr4BAtejPY this is a link for episode 10

Zane, I’m sorry I can’t say a specific time. I have to work, study, and all. Just life in general. I try to be here as much as I can though. 😉
