LEGO Ninjago Lloyd ZX spinner preview

(Written by Geneva – gid617)

Exciting news for Ninjago fans! Finally, more details about the elusive Green Ninja! Although pictures of Lloyd’s spinner have been available for quite some time, I kept hoping to be able to see his character-card’s SP, and now I’ve found it! 😛

I was actually hoping for a 300 Fire, 400 Lightning, 200 Ice, and 200 Earth powers (otherwise, no taking off your opponent’s Crown without adding more SP), but instead, his character-card is just like Sensei Wu’s and Lord Garmadon’s; 300 of each element. (SP refers to the amount of elemental power each card holds, and is indicated by the bars on the bottom left and top right of the Spinjitzu battle-cards, or the bottom and top right of the Spinjitzu character-cards – like Lloyd’s pictured here.)

The only one of Lloyd’s cards that I could find is Premonition (keep face-up, discard if Crown is removed; opponent reveals all cards every time you win). Sadly, and despite its Spinjitzu Power, it is no better than Sizzling Sphere (keep face-up, discard if Crown is removed; opponent plays with all cards face up – included with NRG Jay), in fact, it seems slightly worse. It’s also obvious that Lloyd cannot come with one card for each element (unlike the 2011 Sensei Wu Ninjago spinner). It would be really nice though if he came with all green (or power) cards, like the Premonition card! 🙂

Here is description for the #9574 LEGO NINJAGO Lloyd ZX spinner set: Spin your way to victory against the forces of evil! Lloyd ZX is the legendary Green Ninja, destined to win the great battle between good and evil and bring peace once again to the land of Ninjago. But before he can fulfill his destiny, his fellow ninja must help him master the art of Spinjitzu and defeat the evil Serpentine snake-tribes! Use the 4 battle-cards included in the set to influence the outcome!  Includes: Lloyd ZX minifigure, gold spinner, green Crown, transparent LEGO lift-brick, golden weapon, 2 regular weapons, character-card and 4 battle-cards. 23 pieces.

Both Lloyd and his spinner look good with the pieces from the #9557 LEGO Ninjago Lizaru booster-pack, since the different shades of green go really well together. 😀

As a note, Lloyd is still short in the TV show, even though he is tall (regular minifigure size) in his spinner. Not only that, but he does not use the shoulder-armor, unlike the other ninja. However, it seems like he learns Spinjitzu in the new episode of Ninjago Rise of the Snakes called Pirates vs. Ninja, and it’s likely that he will grow taller by September. Even Lord Garmadon has been forced to admit that he has grown stronger! 🙄

So, how do you like the new Ninjago Lloyd ZX’s spinner? Do you like his SP the way it is? Or would you prefer a different order? Will Lloyd be taller by September in the TV show? What do you think? Have fun discussing in the comment section below!  😉

Your welcome.

Aviram July 14, 2012 at 11:55 AM

I did the snakes because they are newer so we have less time to figure it out. I also can post all of the ninja suits too if you guys want me to.

Aviram July 14, 2012 at 11:56 AM

Well how do we know lloyd will get premonition as all we know is that it matches his powers?

Aviram July 14, 2012 at 12:01 PM

I agree, and Zane is my favorite ninja because he stays calm and sensible (and has a sense of humor).

Aviram July 14, 2012 at 12:40 PM

Well if the base for the add on cards are 400 of any one SP, then adding the golden weapon onto them makes sense that they are 200 SP. That would verify whip attack, black ice shield, snake whips, and rock force. Fast as lightning makes sense because the card to only use one hand to spin (300 SP) is combined with the 400 SP of the build and it has a golden weapon (for both) so it becomes 300 SP. Now all we have to figure out is lizeru’s card and what card bytar will have (I think he will have rock force or repeat another card).

admin July 14, 2012 at 3:09 PM

Yeah, Zane is my favorite too! 😀

nace10 July 14, 2012 at 3:41 PM

He only has a sense of humor if he turns on his funny switch. 🙄

gid617 July 14, 2012 at 4:25 PM

Yeah. A lot of figureing out to do. . . 😉

Aviram July 15, 2012 at 1:40 AM

I like finding out different ways to say the four elements in different languages. Do you?

admin July 15, 2012 at 9:07 AM

Oh, that’s a great idea! 😀

fang suei July 15, 2012 at 4:16 PM

i can’t wait until more season3 eps of ninjago come out or get posted here ill watch them in spanish if i have to

legolotr (Nick) July 15, 2012 at 10:42 PM

spinners?

legolotr (Nick) July 15, 2012 at 10:43 PM

GOOD.

legolotr (Nick) July 15, 2012 at 10:44 PM

I like star wars!!!

Aviram July 15, 2012 at 11:58 PM

I know and I can relate it to other knowledge. For example in german, blitz means lightning so you can see the origin of the name of the world war two air attacks.

James9270 July 16, 2012 at 6:37 AM

Agreed -_-

gid617 July 16, 2012 at 7:30 AM

Aha! That’s why you say Blitz when you win Dutch Blitz (other than it bieing the name, of course) It probably means lightning!

gid617 July 16, 2012 at 7:35 AM

I’d love watching them in spanish! 😉 We only have the first four so far, but we get a new one every saturday – plus, starting this wed, they’ll start showing on CN. Also, we now have a better trailer (and it looks like Garmadon hasn’t given up his efforts. . . this time he creates a Dragon! – Iguess that was the monster in this description of the next episode:

5 “Child’s Play” August 15, 2012
When the Ninja interrupt Lord Garmadon from using his Mega-Weapon to ‘turn back the clock’ and bring to life the fossils of a monster, the Ninja are accidentally hit and turned into kids and are now forced to enlist Lloyd’s help to battle the awakened monster.
Getting a bit tired of Gramadon’s creations, personally (so I liked Ninjaball run, since that was more about the race). But I can’t wait until we here more about the Island of Darkness).

Anyway, here is the link:

This is literally the longest reply chain on theBrickBlogger! 😛

joseph July 17, 2012 at 7:27 AM

What? Ninjas turned into kids? I do not stop laughing! XD

Nrg Jay-mol July 17, 2012 at 7:58 AM

Nrg Jay-mol July 17, 2012 at 8:01 AM

Linney July 17, 2012 at 9:11 AM

I do not believe, ninja became kids? How did this happen to them? Anyway I loved it, they look cute as Lloyd.

gid617 July 17, 2012 at 10:21 AM

Supposedly Garmadon manages to do it with is mega-weapon 😕 Don’t ask me how! 😉

Linney July 17, 2012 at 3:34 PM

I must see it

Skales July 17, 2012 at 4:54 PM

Hmm. I don’t like that storyline. 😐

lloyd montgemary garmadon July 17, 2012 at 8:38 PM

enderman1021 July 17, 2012 at 11:06 PM

If garmadin turned back the clock (reversing time) how woukd that turn zane into a kid he has never been a kid come on ninjago show writers use logic!

enderman1021 July 17, 2012 at 11:06 PM

enderman1021 July 17, 2012 at 11:07 PM

Lloyd ZX July 18, 2012 at 12:57 AM

admin July 18, 2012 at 9:13 AM

Well, that’s why it didn’t compute! 😉

ntk743 July 18, 2012 at 7:57 PM

Theee minutes left! I bet we are all waiting and watching! Have fun!

Nrg Jay-mol July 19, 2012 at 7:46 AM

Oops

Nrg Jay-mol July 19, 2012 at 7:48 AM

I watched the whole marathon yesterday!

Aviram July 19, 2012 at 10:13 PM

It also has the lightning symbol.

Tydroid Ninja of NINJAGONESS July 20, 2012 at 11:20 AM

Think about Lloyds NRG O_O

gid617 July 20, 2012 at 11:30 AM

Yeah, I was wondering about that too! 😉

gid617 July 20, 2012 at 11:32 AM

Why not?? 😕

admin July 20, 2012 at 11:50 AM

UPDATE: Ninjago Episode 14 – Darkness Shall Rise is now posted! Check it out here: Ninjago Episode 14 – Darkness Shall Rise Enjoy! 😉

Skales July 20, 2012 at 7:29 PM

I thought Ninjago was supposed to be about silly teenage ninja. Also, imagine being turned back into a tiny…7 year old. I guess it’s kinda hard to explain.

Lloyd Guy July 21, 2012 at 6:39 AM

gid617 I hope you are right! My sister and I are getting the Weapon Pack and I am getting NRG Kai, but after my mom ordered it I realized he cannot play Flash and Burn.

gid617 July 21, 2012 at 11:11 AM
J.A.M. July 21, 2012 at 12:07 PM

It was cool to see Lloyd become a teenager – now he fits his mini figure persona!

GoldenWeaponMaster July 22, 2012 at 2:58 PM

i ma 14, 15 in december and ninjago is my favourite theme, actually, it is practically the only lego theme i collect

GoldenWeaponMaster July 22, 2012 at 3:03 PM

i don’t like how lloyd is older, it is really hard getting used to, he has blonde clone wars anakin skywalker hair, which is cool, but his voice is weird compared to his old one

fireninjaworrior7 July 25, 2012 at 5:28 PM

i have been waiting so long and now the set is finally shown i am so stoaked for the release of the set cause i have collected every single set that is out but i have been waiting so long for this product to come out.

Skales July 27, 2012 at 7:28 AM

Well! That was actually quite a nice episode. The only thing I don’t like is that they’re making Ninjago too much like Star Wars; laser swords, “I sense a disturbance in the Force”, Ninjaball Run AND the fact the good racers’ vehicle got sabotaged…It’s just getting kind of annoying. 🙁

admin July 27, 2012 at 9:13 AM

Skales, you make some good points. I was quite disappointed with Ninjaball Run. It was practically the same thing as podracing in SW. I felt bored watching it, as it was very predictable what will happen. Then there are the lightsabers, and the Force reference… I’m not sure why Ninjago went this direction. They didn’t have SW references in the previous season. At least I don’t remember any. 🙁

gid617 August 4, 2012 at 1:08 PM

He’s only been older for a few min. so far. After a few episodes it should be easy to get used to it 😉

lloyd123 August 5, 2012 at 2:59 PM

the spinner is comming out in september, and lloyd becomes older in the “childs play” episode.

lloyd123 August 5, 2012 at 3:11 PM

nya is going to become the purple ninja in season 4.PHH! Iknow more than anyone about ninjago!

lloyd123 August 5, 2012 at 5:03 PM

its the tea that made him older.

lloyd123 August 6, 2012 at 10:38 AM

at the end of the episode, its hard to tell that lloyd gets the sholder pads.now lloyds sholder pads from the epic dragon battle set makes more sence.

lloyd123 August 6, 2012 at 10:42 AM

nrg lloyd probly comes out in season 4!0~0

ntk743 August 7, 2012 at 9:48 AM
