LEGO Ninjago 2014 – first minifig spotted!

by admin on September 27, 2013

in LEGO Ninjago

If you keep up with LEGO news here and other LEGO fan-sites, you know that LEGO Ninjago is going to continue in 2014. Although there hasn’t been much news lately, as we get closer to the end of the year/beginning of next year, we can expect more and more news to trickle in. The latest is that the first LEGO Ninjago 2014 minifigure has been spotted on eBay, plust the following image appeared on the officialย LEGO Ninjago Facebook Page showing the same minifigs! ๐Ÿ™‚

2014 LEGO Ninjago Rebooted

Aย couple of days ago there was an auction on eBay for a LEGO Ninjago minifigure named “General Cryptor” –ย a half ninja/half cyborg character that likely escaped from the LEGO factory in Mexico. (We have seen this same trend before with the previous Ninjago waves, as well as LEGO Legends of Chima, and LEGO Super Heroes – eBay is a strange place, but that’s another topic.)

LEGO Ninjago 2014 General Cryptor

Going back to General Cryptor, we can only assume he is a badguy in Ninjago based on his creepy name, black outfit and evil-ish facial expression. He comes with a ninja-hood with an attached cyborg eye-piece. His shoulder armor is also a new piece, and I like it much better than the previously released Ninjago armor that looked like little wings.

LEGO Ninjago 2014 General Cryptor Details

Also notice the silver cyborg right arm! The head and torso are printed on both the front and back, and the legs are printed on the front. The armor piece can hold two katanas, like the previous Ninjago armor.

LEGO Ninjago 2014 General Cryptor Close Ups

General Cryptor will appear in at least two new LEGO Ninjago sets (according to the eBay seller mentioned above); #70721 LEGO Ninjago Fighter Kai and #70724 LEGO Ninjago NinjaCopter. For your reference here are the upcoming LEGO Ninjago 2014 sets we know about:

  • #70720 LEGO Ninjago Hover Hunter
  • #70721 LEGO Ninjago Fighter Kai
  • #70722 LEGO Ninjago OverBorg Attack
  • #70723 LEGO Ninjago Thunder Raider
  • #70724 LEGO Ninjago NinjaCopter
  • #70725 LEGO Ninjago Nindroid MechDragon
  • #70726 LEGO Ninjago Destructoid

Although the auction for General Cryptor is now over (I actually bid on this auction, but it went way above what I was willing to pay), I’m sure more will pop up in the near future. If you are interested to see what LEGO Ninjago minifigures are coming, I highly recommend to keep an eye on this seller’s auctions, as well as on other LEGO sellers from Texas, right across the border from Mexico. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So what do you think? How do you like General Cryptor and the whole idea of Ninjago turning more cyborg-ish? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! ๐Ÿ™‚

Epic post! I’m going to place a bid for a figure since I’m a huge ninjago junky!

Ntk743 September 27, 2013 at 10:16 AM

And ur doing the sets Sunday?

admin September 27, 2013 at 10:19 AM

Yep, but you can discuss them here as well, if you wish. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ray Kremer September 27, 2013 at 10:33 AM

I admit that I never was much into the Ninjago theme until Chima came out and I decided to go back and get all the snake themed Ninjago sets, and then I also went ahead on the three mecha sets and the Ultra Sonic Raider. None of the rest of it really grabbed me hard enough to care. But cyborg ninja villains? I’m going to be all over that.

It should also play well in the cartoon series, since it’s not a third iteration of “ancient buried evil” but something entirely from the modern day.

admin September 27, 2013 at 10:39 AM

Yeah, Cyborg + Ninja combination is just perfect! I really like it myself. BTW, can you guys translate the bilinary code at the bottom of the poster? ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Chi-bacca September 27, 2013 at 10:48 AM

I have to admit these new ninjago sets and figures look epic! I mean I liked ninjago before but I have a fondness of black and red colour schemed robots…… ๐Ÿ˜€

Fikko3107 September 27, 2013 at 11:01 AM

The binary code? It’s ASCII and it says “Nindroid”. Completely saw right through it. Yeah, I take an IT after-school activity.

Fine, I cheated. I looked it up on Brickset…

admin September 27, 2013 at 11:16 AM

LOL! Cheater! No cookies for you! :mrgreen:

Meneldur son of Garamar September 27, 2013 at 11:21 AM

LOL! Hey Admin, do I get any cookies?

Meneldur son of Garamar September 27, 2013 at 11:30 AM

Oh yeah. Just found some pics of the new Ninjago sets! They look awesome.

Meneldur son of Garamar September 27, 2013 at 11:37 AM

Arrgh! Wrong email. Now I’m off to work on a new post!

benny September 27, 2013 at 11:39 AM

ninja of stealth September 27, 2013 at 12:09 PM

CYBORGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wait, your doing sets on Sunday? but, but, I’m not going to be here Sunday! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! sorry everybody for that huge meltdown. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
speaking of ninjago, if you want to see mini movie 7 I know where it is! the huge drag about it, its in Korean. ๐Ÿ™ but here it is then you type in: “ninjago mini movie (KOREAN) with subtitles” its pretty funny!

ninja of stealth September 27, 2013 at 12:12 PM

“I’ve never seen a robot do that!” -Kai “you mean a nindroid” -Jay “yeah, whatever” -Kai
nindriod… interesting hmm. this is all Dr. Julian’s fault!! (ok?) the bad guy has to be Dr. Julian! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

ninja of stealth September 27, 2013 at 12:16 PM

red and black do go well together Chi-bacca.I think, these bad guys are going to be the most epic looking minifigures from the ninjago theme! more ninjas! awesome! I can make an even lager ninja army ๐Ÿ˜ˆ so evil! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

ninja of stealth September 27, 2013 at 12:17 PM

you have to post them on here meneldur! are they going to be more dragons! then I can have a dragon army! (ok to obsessed with army’s at the moment ๐Ÿ™„ )

admin September 27, 2013 at 12:29 PM

You? No. Definitely not. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

admin September 27, 2013 at 12:29 PM

Yes, they have been revealed by Kmart a couple of days ago. We will talk about those on Sunday. And of course you guys can talk about them here as well, if you don’t want to wait. ๐Ÿ˜‰

admin September 27, 2013 at 12:31 PM

Benny, the minifig went for $53, I think. But there is another one listed right now as you can see it in the eBay box in the post. It is only at $6.50 and the auction finishes in 10 hours! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Cross September 27, 2013 at 12:53 PM

The sets are really cool, I love it how they gave the ninja’s masks instead of the headgear and actual hair. Also, I don’t know if you’ve seen the sets, but Zane is included in none… My theory is that some cyborg evil dudes got to Zane, corrupted his cystems and made him into Nindroid (there’s an actual figure who’s called Nindroid). *dramatic music starts playing*

legozebra September 27, 2013 at 1:18 PM

Well, the pictures are only of three smaller sets. I believe they are doing some sort of marketing to make Zane be in the big sets only…

ntk743 September 27, 2013 at 1:55 PM

I posted some of the new LEGO Ninjago sets on my Instagram: @nathan_k743 go check me out!!!

JediToa September 27, 2013 at 3:40 PM

Really? My grandfather knows Korean and could probably help me find out what it means.

ChrisKRey September 27, 2013 at 3:45 PM

I agree! these sets are gonna be awesome! i”ll need to put more time in at work just to make sure i can buy all 7 sets the moment they comeout. I hope to see a new Sensei, Garmadon, and maybe even a Misako and Nya in this up coming wave. if not, i heard somewhere that ninjago still be around for a while, looking at the fact that the =Lego Ninjago Movie will be out in 2015

brick addict September 27, 2013 at 3:45 PM

i saw some sets on the brick show they look sweeeeet ๐Ÿ˜€

Fingolfin September 27, 2013 at 4:04 PM

Does anyone know if there are pictures of Lego the hobbit mirkwood elf army, dol guldur ambush and dol guldur battle?

Fingolfin September 27, 2013 at 4:11 PM

When i saw this for the first time i thought: “what ninjago set is this?”
it are really nicely done fake ninjago spinners.

LEGO BOY September 27, 2013 at 4:23 PM

my uncle’s friend works in lego ninjago and the whole thing seems hush about it. i begged him and he wont tell a thing, they must be payed well. he said that the plot will focus on zane and his creator/father which is pretty obvious by now.
this sucks ๐Ÿ™

admin September 27, 2013 at 5:31 PM

The new Hobbit sets haven’t been revealed yet. Only their names. I guess they have been really good at keeping those under wraps. ๐Ÿ™„

admin September 27, 2013 at 5:32 PM

Yeah, I have written a whole post on fake Ninjago sets. You can find it in the Ninjago section. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

admin September 27, 2013 at 5:33 PM

They are actually aren’t paid that well. But if they do leak information out they will loose their job. And in this economy I don’t think anyone is going to risk that. Plus, who would want to loose their job with LEGO? ๐Ÿ™‚

Carbo September 27, 2013 at 5:50 PM

I hope we get a Dareth minifigure! He is my favorite character from Ninjago.

NinjaMelissa September 27, 2013 at 6:41 PM

DON’T HURT ZANE!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHH!!!!!!! (starts crying frantically) *cough. Sorry tiny meltdown as well…. So Cant Wait!!!

NovaofSilverSkies September 27, 2013 at 7:22 PM

There are more pics on Bickipedia. The new outfits are amazing! There are pics of the new sets and the minifigs, too. Just thought I wuold give you a heads up, Admin. ๐Ÿ™‚

admin September 27, 2013 at 7:59 PM

Thanks, yes, I have the pictures too. They were released a couple of days ago. I have a post ready with those for Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜‰

admin September 27, 2013 at 7:59 PM

Yeah, he was really fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

benny September 28, 2013 at 2:50 AM

yea so do I. dareth is my second fave character and second fave ninja (my fave is jay). I actually burst out laughing when he said “I am the brown ninjago”

also is anyone from Europe getting issues with chima online site

LWC guy September 28, 2013 at 5:02 AM

Though I think that they’re milking Ninjago way, way, way too much, this fig does look pretty flipping awesome. Very sweet!

gid617 September 28, 2013 at 8:28 AM

These bad guys are looking pretty good! ๐Ÿ˜› I do like the armor much better than the other ninja armor, the entire outfit looks quite neat though I’m not too much of a fan of that facial expression. You can clearly see Garmadon’s influence in the purple robes there. I guess I’ll reserve my comments on the other sets until those are posted but I will say it’s really a shame the Ninja don’t have leg printing. Their hair is really nice though.

NovaofSilverSkies September 28, 2013 at 9:15 AM

Great, Cannot wait! ๐Ÿ˜€

CraggerThePrinceOfChima September 28, 2013 at 10:10 AM

I got some news for ya people! It is sad news though for Ninjago fans like myself. On the poster it states the word “Rebooted” which would mean that a robot’s memory would be wiped out and given a new task. I have seen the new Ninjago set pictures and I do not see a Zane in it. My guess is that someone rebooted Zane and made him into an evil robot. It kind of makes sense when you think about it. So, Zane is probably this General Cryptor or some other figure. Some people think Zane is the guy in the Overborg attack set but that is still a rumor.

admin September 28, 2013 at 10:21 AM

LEGO fans actually asked… no, demanded… that Ninjago comes back. LEGO wanted to stop, but they had no choice. ๐Ÿ˜‰

admin September 28, 2013 at 10:25 AM

I hope that’s not true! Zane is my favorite character! ๐Ÿ™

NinjaMelissa September 28, 2013 at 11:01 AM

NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not Zane!!!!!!

CraggerThePrinceOfChima September 28, 2013 at 12:19 PM

I guess we will need to sacrifice Zane in order for Ninjago to continue…very sad…But it is for a good cause…I hope. I really feel bad for Zane. He lived without a family for half of his life, finds out he is a robot, and now probably turns evil. It’s a sad story. But I hope it has a happy ending in where Zane finally turns good again. Some people say a computer virus entered his body and that is what is making him do bad things. General Cryptor is actually similar to the name of a computer virus named Gen Crypt.

ALONSO31 September 28, 2013 at 12:28 PM

I think your mistaken there Cragger because on the back of the boxes we see art of Zane and General Cryptor and yes we have not seen Zane in a set yet but there’s a reason for that which is there are 7 new sets and we have seen 3 so far so I am sure that Zane appears in at least 1 set and to me General Cryptor, CyrusBorg/Overborg and The Nindroid look very different from Zane.

chi-bacca September 28, 2013 at 1:06 PM

yes I agree with ALONSO31
we have only so far seen images of three of the sets each containing a different ninja as usual. I am pretty sure he will be a figure even if he is evil as he will be a big part of the tv series of which this wave will be based around. anyways zane is one of my favourite characters (no1 being cole ๐Ÿ˜€ ) so I will not be a very happy person if they miss him out ๐Ÿ˜‰

legozebra September 28, 2013 at 2:36 PM

Btw, the Legends of Chima episode 13 is out, any ideas she it will be posted? Admin usually picks the best ad-free one so I am reluctant to click any yet ๐Ÿ™‚

llg52 September 28, 2013 at 4:04 PM

OH WOW!!!!!!!!! I’m still not sure about the whole nindroid thing but did anyone notice the binary text on the bottom of the picture? I know something of binary so I’ll see if it says something or not. I get back to you. Also, it would be neat if Zane was “rebooted”. I like Zane.Did I say Like? ah-ha no…..I LOVE Zane!!!!! Zane is SOOOOOO cool! However, maybe if he was turned bad for a little bit and started a huge nindroid army before the ninja turned him good again……… That might be neat. But if Zane goes bad and stays bad! Ooooooooooh I’m gonna be mad!

llg52 September 28, 2013 at 4:14 PM

Ok! I looked it up and decoded the binary. It says: NINDROID
Not as exciting as I hoped but it’s still cool! I mean come on, ITS A SECRET CODE!!!!!!!!!! (I love secret codes!) Well the mystery is solved. If any of you want to learn more about binary numbers, here’s the link:

And here’s binary letters:

I’m still geeking out about this!

admin September 28, 2013 at 10:17 PM

Oh, that’s good to hear! I really don’t want Zane to go bad. ๐Ÿ˜•

admin September 28, 2013 at 10:18 PM

I haven’t found a reliable version yet, so I’m waiting a bit. I have it scheduled for Tuesday, and hopefully by then I can locate a version that plays decent and is safe.

admin September 28, 2013 at 10:19 PM

Very impressed with your binary knowledge! I also love secret codes! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Butter Ninja FTW September 28, 2013 at 10:28 PM

This means time to start saving up for sets! ๐Ÿ˜€

CraggerThePrinceOfChima September 28, 2013 at 11:51 PM

I already got $50 already saved up. I’m hoping for Christmas to make it more. Otherwise, so far, a great start!

CraggerThePrinceOfChima September 29, 2013 at 9:14 AM

chi-bacca…if Zane is an evil minifigure, he will probably be General Cryptor or the Overborg. That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you guys. And Alonso31, Mr.Know it all, what do you think the word rebooted will mean? hm? hmm? HMMMM? I thought so.

ALONSO31 September 29, 2013 at 11:27 AM

First of all Cragger I am not a know it all ask most pepole on this site(I was NRG Kai and Kimono Kai before) and by rebooted I beleive it means they are coming back but the rebooted word was used since it is nindroids or robots and rebooted is a robot word(or in this case nindroids) and sorry if I sounded rude that was not what I intended for.

SG October 3, 2013 at 4:38 PM

I sent you a message about what I’ve found Admin!

SG October 3, 2013 at 4:39 PM

It’s about Ninjago 2014 Mini figure!

admin October 3, 2013 at 10:11 PM

Yeah, I read you email and also saw Lloyd a couple of days ago. As I have mentioned, you gotta watch this seller! ๐Ÿ˜‰

NinjaMelissa October 6, 2013 at 12:59 PM

What if it isn’t Zane who is rebooted, but an early defected nindroid that came before Zane?! Then Zane would still be safe and the Ninja together and we’ll all live happily ever after!!

legomaster0418 October 16, 2013 at 3:38 PM

zane is deffinetly not evil i saw this picture and zane is ninja!!

legomaster0418 October 16, 2013 at 3:44 PM

ninjasofis October 29, 2013 at 10:33 PM
