Is it true? Will Ninjago really end in 2013? This question has been hanging in the air for quite some time. The answer still isn’t quite clear – at least not yet – but I do have some related news that you may find interesting, and they may serve as puzzle-pieces to the answer. 🙂
I asked a LEGO representative about the fate of Ninjago and received the answer, “To be honest, I have not heard anything like that about the ending of Ninjago. There is always room for expansion and changes, but at the moment I cannot confirm any of those ideas.” What does this mean?! I was also told this, “I can tell you that we have sets for the Ninjago line planned for the whole 2013 year.” So if Ninjago is going to end, it doesn’t seem that it would end in 2013!
Several months ago I asked a similar question and received this answer, “We do not have any confirmation that the Ninjago series will be discontinued in 2013.” Now, listen to what really is interesting, “So if you have not heard anything directly from the LEGO Group, it might not necessarily be true.” Everybody who heard this news probably never heard it directly from the LEGO Group. I heard that people got the news from Brickipedia. Have you been around the LEGO Message Board and seen headlines like “Ninjago Ending in 2013” or “Ninjago Ending”? Well, since one – or should I say hundreds – say one thing, now everyone believes it!
In the upcoming Ninjago comic-book, Warriors of Stone by Papercutz, you can see that the ninja are in some kind of outfit that has never been seen before. This book is supposed to be released on February 5th 2013, and it looks like the ninja are facing yet another villain, the stone-army, which may mean more Ninjago episodes starting in February!
I wasn’t told anything about the Ninjago sets to come, but I can say there will be a new line of LEGO Ninjago sets and Ninjago minifigures sometime in 2013, most likely in January! I’m sure we all will look forward to the new sets of Ninjago! Here is the list of the first wave if 2013 Ninjago sets:
- #70500 LEGO Ninjago Kai’s Fire Robot
- #70501 LEGO Ninjago Samurai Bike
- #70502 LEGO Ninjago Cole’s Power Drill
- #70503 LEGO Ninjago Golden Dragon
- #70504 LEGO Ninjago Garmatron
- #70505 LEGO Ninjago Temple of Light
There is one other question Ninjago fans have been asking: “When will the new Ninjago episodes start again on Cartoon Network?” I looked at CN’s website and found nothing. But I was told by a LEGO representative that the next new episode of LEGO Ninjago will air on Wednesday, September 26th at 8pm! I’m not positive that it will be aired, but let’s hope so!
So in the end, I find these bits and pieces of news very interesting and hope you enjoyed it too! Looking at it all,I don’t think LEGO Ninjago will end in 2013, but what do you think? Do you still believe that Ninjago is going to end in 2013? What Ninjago sets do you think LEGO should come out with next year? How about NRG Lloyd, the Dark Bounty, the Mega Weapon and pirates?
