LEGO NINJAGO 2012 – NRG Ninja pictures!

There is something strange that supposed to happen to the four main characters of LEGO NINJAGO as the story of “NINJAGO – Rise of the Snakes” unfolds. This is evident from the NEW YORK toy-fair images.

NRG Ninja circled in red...

Kai, Jay, Zane and Cole will morph into their NRG state (which, according to some sources, refers to “energy”).  So we will have an NRG Kai, and NRG Jay, an NRG Zane and an NRG Cole. (Yeah, we already had plain ninja, DX ninja, ZX ninja, and now NRG ninja. If you are a collector of them all, I feel sorry for your wallet!) 

These are the first images of these special forms of the NINJAGO characters from the New York toy-fair; thanks to ASMzine.com, a HASBRO fan-site that has been covering the toy-fair since the year 2000. Enjoy! 😛

LEGO NINJAGO Red Ninja: Kai – “Ninja of Fire” – in his NRG form:


LEGO NINJAGO Blue Ninja: Jay – “Ninja of Lightning” – in his NRG form:


LEGO NINJAGO White Ninja: Zane – “Ninja of Ice” – in his NRG form:


LEGO NINJAGO Black Ninja: Cole – “Ninja of Earth” – in his NRG form:


LEGO NINJAGO Green Ninja – added him for good measure… 😉

LEGO NINJAGO - Green Ninja

I like the Green Ninja, but the NRG form of the four other ninja looks pretty evil to me. I don’t know if this is going to be the final design, or if LEGO is still working on them. Let me know in the comment section below what you think of them all! 😉

    • Ian March 17, 2012, 8:27 AM

      He grows up as a teenager

      • yudhizane April 8, 2012, 7:27 AM

        lloyd still not get his long legs until end of season 2

        • Purple Ninja April 24, 2012, 4:16 PM

          They give him long legs so he can have a crown on his spinner, as in booster pack ‘Lloyd Garmadon’, he can’t have a crown with the short legs.

    how does lloyd become a teen because a person said becomes a teen. mabey a puberty groth spirt lol 🙂

    • Ian March 18, 2012, 11:40 AM

      I heard from some peolpe that lord garmerdon made him a kid soo he could go to school to be save but he’s really 20 years old and in season 3 the ninjas get the thing to make him 20 and taller but I’m not so sure I think lord garmedon makes him 20 years old before he dies

      • gid617 March 19, 2012, 6:33 AM

        Acutally, I think he might be allitle taller in episode 11, though not his whole hight! ANyway, if he is 11, which he probably is, then he should grow soon.

        • Anonymous May 3, 2012, 7:27 PM

          I have some sort of strange feeling that Lloyd will grow taller at the beginning of season 3. And by then or later in the season, I’m positive that Lloyd will have learned Spinjitzu. Possible reasons for height growth:

          1: Puberty (cue LOL moment).

          2: To fit in with the spinner so people woln’t be complaining to the animators, “BUT HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE TALLER! Atleast that’s what the set says…..”

          So fellow Ninjago fans, don’t be surprised in the Season 3 Premiere that you see a taller, grown up Lloyd. Expect it.

          • admin May 3, 2012, 8:57 PM

            Yeah, I won’t be surprised either. I guess Lloyd is just going to go thru his growth spur. 😀

            • Anonymous May 5, 2012, 4:26 PM

              Yeah, just a warning. Nobody needs to be surprised if we see a MUCH older Lloyd. Also admin, you got a little grammar mistake on your hands.

  • ooberpootz March 18, 2012, 8:13 PM

    I watched the 10th episode on Youtube (korean version) it shows the ninja putting their weapons around lloyd and he morphs into the green ninja it also shows kai stealing the green ninja clothes

    • Becky March 24, 2012, 10:01 AM

      he wasn’t stealing them he was playing in them!

      • Anonymous May 5, 2012, 4:31 PM

        oober, Lloyd didn’t morph directly into his Green Ninja clothes, the ninja put their weapons in front of him, and they reacted correctly, unveiling the mysterious Green Ninja’s identity. And Becky, Kai wasn’t playing in the Green Ninja outfit, he just thought if he put the clothes on, he could see his true potential, because he was nonetheless jealous of the others because they unlocked their powers, and he was the only one who didn’t.

    Admin, you should make a post on all the summer 2012 spinners and boosters.

  • MASTER SPINNER March 22, 2012, 6:08 PM

    Thats what I’m I keep saying!

  • Becky March 23, 2012, 5:59 PM

    are they coming out with more then one kind of Green Ninja??

    • Skales April 29, 2012, 11:12 AM

      The LEGO creators might make an NRG Lloyd, because it appears that he will meet his full potential. This is just a speculation, and I might not be correct.

      • Anonymous May 5, 2012, 4:23 PM

        Yes, most sources say in the Season 3 Finale that Lloyd will unlock his true potential and finally defeat the pirates, hence the title, “The Ultimate Spinjitzu Master”. So yes, he will, Skales.

  • NRG jay March 25, 2012, 6:34 PM

    Ive never seen the NRG ninja yet on tv ,maybe they will be on episode 11

  • Eli March 27, 2012, 5:48 PM

    nrg is their true potenshel form.

  • NRG jay March 28, 2012, 4:39 PM

    i think that in episode 11 they will turn NRG because thats when they all have their true potenshal

  • Kai vx March 28, 2012, 8:44 PM

    The NRG ninja are scary.

    • Anonymous May 7, 2012, 6:18 PM

      Not scary, but maybe just a little more harm than good look…. except Cole. He DEFINETLY looks like he’s changed sides. What do you think NRG Lloyd will look like? I’m thinking he’ll turn out as a combination of ALL four elements.

  • nrg x March 28, 2012, 10:46 PM

    i thought nia the girl was goin to become the green ninja wow what a surpise

  • nrg x March 28, 2012, 10:51 PM

    man the red ninja aka kai is not the ninja of lighting

  • nrg x March 28, 2012, 11:07 PM

    there weapons got switched or something

  • nrg x March 28, 2012, 11:08 PM

    the nrg ninjas eyes kinda make them look like zombies

    • Anonymous May 3, 2012, 7:38 PM

      ….. why would a bunch of Lego Minifigures Designers make a ninja/fantasy/modern theme make their main characters’s eyes look like zombies? Sure, the Four Ninja look like they want to do more harm than good, but in the episodes, like admin said, they look quite fantastic!

      Fellow Ninjago fan, unfortunately no source has come out of the shadows to reason the Ninja’s change of weapons. Guess we’re all gonna have to wait for a source to come in the next few months.

  • Kai vx March 29, 2012, 8:20 AM

    Episode 11 was so cool. To bad they did’nt have them transform to nrg like in the last 4 episodes

    • Anonymous May 3, 2012, 7:34 PM

      Remember that the chamber they were trapped in was built out of benchstone (or bedstone, I couldn’t really hear what Sensei Wu said), so that rendered their elemental powers useless.

      No powers, no Golden Weapons = They can’t get outta there
      without Lloyd’s help.

      So yeah, if they could use their powers, I bet they would get out of their in an instant.

    I think Zane is the only one that looks like he’s on the good side to me. But Kai and Jay look like they want to do more harm than good. And Cole……… he just looks like he’s ALLLLLLLL for the bad side.

    -Anonymous Ninjago Fan

    • admin May 2, 2012, 7:40 PM

      Yeah, these minifigs are a bit on the scary side. Interestingly, in the episodes they looked quite fantastic. I guess it is hard to get the same effect in a real minifigure. BTW, I have heard that the design on the NRG minifigs are holographic. 😉

      • Anonymous May 3, 2012, 7:16 PM

        I hope by at least season 3 that they will be in this NRG form, but I hope the show’s animators will give a more….. good side look. But we all gotta agree though, these minifigures do look cool! I’m hoping somewhat and way, the ninjas will stay in this form, because even though they look like they want to do more harm than good (I’m POSITIVE the animators will fix that up) they look like together they’re an unstoppable force!

  • Anonymous May 3, 2012, 7:49 PM

    I’m listening to the Weekend Whip ( you know, the Ninjago theme song) while typing this 😀

    In other stuff, I hope the Four Ninja use their true potential powers, NRG forms, or whatever, more in Season 3. Once the ninja unlocked their true potential, the lack of their NRG powers in Season 2 was utterly disappointing. Fingers crossed! 😀

    -Once Again, the Anonymous Ninjago Fan

    I typed all of that during the song. Dang, I type fast!

  • pythin May 6, 2012, 3:20 PM

    I think NRG Lloyd should look pretty good!

    • Anonymous May 6, 2012, 4:23 PM

      Agreed. I’m thinking he’ll turn out in his true potential form as a combination of all 4 elements, and will be unstoppable. Fingers crossed!
