With Halloween coming up, kids and adults are looking for costumes that are either scary, or resembles their favorite fictional characters. Back in August Disguise, Inc., the Halloween costume division of leading toy manufacturer, JAKKS Pacific, Inc., announced that it has secured a licensing agreement with the LEGO Group to release children’s Halloween costumes based on popular LEGO characters. The multi-year, multi-category agreement granted Disguise rights to distribute its LEGO licensed products across channels in North America, Europe, Korea and China. And the first of their products are available for Halloween this year! 🙂

Kids can step into the magical kingdom of Knighton and become a LEGO Nexo Knights character in one of the heroic costumes as Clay, Aaron or Lance.

Both LEGO Ninjago and LEGO Nexo Knights costumes include a character-correct half-mask with a foam insert for comfort along with a mesh eye-plate designed to help kids breathe and see more easily. Kids can wear the included minifigure hands to complete the iconic look. These minifigure hands are designed to allow kids to free their hands easily through special openings in order to enjoy treats! In addition to the costumes, a selection of LEGO Ninjago and LEGO Nexo Knights accessories are also be available, including half masks of LEGO Ninjago Kai, Lloyd, Jay and Nya; LEGO Nexo Knights Clay, Aaron and Lance; LEGO Hands and a LEGO Nexo Knights Novelty Treat Bag (shaped like a shield).

In case it is not clear from the official description quoted above, Disguise makes two types of LEGO Ninjago and LEGO Nexo Knights costumes. One is called the Deluxe Collection, which includes a mask, a tunic, a pair of hands, and thinner pants. The Prestige Collection includes the same mask, tunic and hands, but the pants are more padded to make them look like square minifigure legs. Personally I think the Deluxe Collection costumes are more comfortable because the pants are not as thick and awkward, but the Prestige Collection make kids look more like real minifigs (even though the proportions are still off). Besides the full costumes, you can also get masks and hands separately.

Disguise sent me a sample of the Prestige Collection Lloyd costume, so I had a chance to check it out personally. The mask is quite large and would fit pretty much any size head, or even over a hat or hood – in case it is very cold outsize when kids are going trick-or-treating. It is made of good quality plastic that should last. The eye area is covered with a see-through type of thin mesh. The only thing I don’t like about the mask is that the Velcro on the elastic straps is very small and will likely detach easily. However it would be easy to sew on a larger piece of Velcro.

The material of the tunic and the pants is comfortable and flexible enough to allow full range of movement, although I wouldn’t call the material breathable. The body of the tunic and the Prestige Collection pants are lined with a thin layer of foam to make the costume more square and bulky. The foam is a little scratchy, so I would suggest wearing at least a thin layer of comfortable clothing under the costume. The arms of the tunic are made of a thin layer of non-padded material that should allow some airflow. The pants have an elastic waistband, and look and feel quite comfy. I would still prefer the thinner pants in the Deluxe Collection just because I think they look better and even more comfortable.

The hands are the best part of these costumes. They are padded and shaped like minifig claw-hands on the outside, and on the inside there is a thinner material that is split in the middle so you can take your thumb and/or fingers out to handle things better. But even with the claw-hands on, it is pretty easy to grab things, because the inside material is thin and flexible. The gloves work well for adults with smaller hands as well, in case you ever want to wear them to feel like a minifig. 🙄

Overall I would say that these are fun and good quality costumes. The colors are bright, and the materials are comfortable. They should be able to survive quite a bit of playwear even after Halloween. You should be able to find both the LEGO Ninjago and LEGO Nexo Knights collection at most department stores that sell costumes this time of the year, and you can also order them via Amazon.

I’m sorry if you are disappointed, but TBB is a blog, not a news site. We discuss things that are interesting and relevant to our contributors and readers, not what’s hot off the press (although sometimes we cover that too). There was no point in talking about Halloween costumes weeks ago, when many of us were still enjoying summer, or were busy with back-to-school activities.

There are plenty of LEGO news sites already you can follow if your interest is breaking news. We rather focus on resources, reviews, building techniques, unique and interesting builds, and staying in touch with the community. Hope you find the right website for your interest. There is something for everyone’s taste within the vast LEGO fan community. 😉

Wow! This is the first unfriendly comment I have ever seen in this friendly community. Say My Name (or whatever is your name) take your negativity somewhere else.

Do you know if the sizing is accurate? I have three boys they all want to dress up as Ninjago characters.

There is a sizing chart on their website that should be accurate. You can pull up any of the costumes, and there will be a link to their sizing chart at the bottom: http://www.disguise.com/brands/ninjago

Whenever you have something like this where the entire main cast is not included, it’s always interesting to see what the character choice actually is.

Girls are stuck with Nya, no love for Macey. But then neither line is targeted to girls.

I think it also has a lot to do with what children want to dress up for Halloween. I have heard from a lot of boys who would like to dress up as Lloyd, Jay or Kai, but I have never heard of a girl wanting to dress ups as Nya or Macey. And yes, these are interesting things…
