New LEGO Ninjago cards & other news!

(Written by Geneva – gid617)

There has been lots of LEGO news popping up during the past few weeks: new LEGO Star Wars, and LEGO Hobbit sets, 2013 Super Heroes minifigures, Series 8 Minifigures, etc. Ninjago hasn’t been completely left out either; however it has been mostly random bits and pieces of information floating around – not enough to write a full post about. But I thought to at least write a brief recap of the Ninjago news surfacing these days. 🙂

For one thing, we now know several of the new Spinjitzu cards included in the September spinners (for more information check out the following posts:  LEGO Ninjago September Spinners, and LEGO Ninjago Lloyd ZX Spinner Preview). Following are several of the new cards:

LEGO NINJAGO – #1 Lloyd ZX Character Card: included in Lloyd’s spinner-set.  1200 SP – 300 of each element.  (Previously posted in LEGO Ninjago Lloyd ZX Spinner Preview.)

LEGO NINJAGO – #117 Premonition Crown Card:  included with Lloyd’s spinner-set. 300 SP of each element. Keep face-up; discard if Crown is removed. Opponent must reveal all cards every time you win. (Also previously posted in LEGO Ninjago Lloyd ZX Spinner Preview.)

LEGO NINJAGO – #18 Bytar Character Card:  included in Bytar’s booster pack. Comes with 1100 SP. (See picture below.)

LEGO NINJAGO – #70 Crown of Earth Battle Card:  included in Bytar’s booster-pack. 400 Earth SP. Build/remove Crown on any spinner.

LEGO NINJAGO – #44 Poison Whips Battle Card:  included in Lizaru’s booster-pack. 100 Fire SP. Add the above on spinner until a player wins, then remove.

LEGO NINJAGO – #99 Spirit Guard Crown Card: included in Slithraa’s spinner-set. 400 ice SP. Keep face-up; discard if Crown is removed. Build one of the above on spinner every spin, then remove.

None of these Spinjitzu cards seem especially great, but Poison Whips in particular has remarkably low SP. Spirit Guard is a nice card if you enjoy adding things to your spinner. On the other hand Premonition is not so good as very few characters have 1200 SP! 🙁

Another interesting bit of Ninjago news is the image below; the cover of a new Ninjago comic-book by the publisher PaperCutz that is supposed to be released in February. In this image, the four ninja appear to be outfitted in something like a traditional Japanese Kimono, although they do still have the ninja-emblem on their head-wraps. And check out those stone warriors the ninja are facing!

Also, there is going to be a LEGO Ninjago Character Encyclopedia including a “special edition” Lloyd minifigure, with an outfit that looks very similar to the Kimono on the front of the book by PaperCutz. My guess is that the ninja will continue to have the shoulder-armor piece even if their outfits change, as the special edition Lloyd also has the shoulder-armor. It’s also interesting that the ninja are using something like the light-sabers in the TV-show, Ninjago Masters of Spinjitzu Episode 18 – Child’s Play.

It doesn’t quite make sense for Lloyd to be “special edition” though if the rest of the ninja will also look like him eventually. But the PaperCutz stories and images don’t always follow closely the story-line of the TV-show. I also think he looks a bit odd with golden shoulder-armor. Maybe I’m just used to him more with the darker armor-piece. 🙄

So, what do you think about the new Spinjitzu cards? And how do you like the new ninja outfits? And what about the stone warriors? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below! 😉

    Wow ! Look at Lloyd’s new outfit

  • i know its so cool!

    • Micho August 7, 2012, 11:21 AM

      eh… It’s allright, LOL jk, yeah very nice.

  • The Ultimate Spinjitzu master August 7, 2012, 11:16 AM

    Wow! Ninjago keeps getting better and better!

  • legolotr August 7, 2012, 11:36 AM

    In “the warriors of stone” those guys the ninja are fighting look like Savage Oppress.

    • gid617 August 7, 2012, 11:37 AM

      Yeah, they do! They also look like standing tigers! 😉

  • KING_BOO_XDDX August 7, 2012, 2:43 PM

    0-0 epic

  • stewbrick901 August 7, 2012, 3:11 PM

    This maybe a new ninja outfit, but obviously not the PWR armor, because PWR is pronounced “power” which means that the ninja probably will get even better armor. But this seems like something that they might wear once or twice..

    • George Barnick (Meiko) August 7, 2012, 4:08 PM

      Do you believe everything you see on the internet? The “PWR Ninja” were made up names. These ninja haven’t even been announced yet, and this is the only image we have of them. For all we know, it could just be an alternate ZX uniform.

      • gid617 August 7, 2012, 4:17 PM

        That’s true. And I agree with George that the PWR is probably false. There’s really no reason to believe it, since all the other season three rumors were false. . . 😉

      • 4 Headed Dragon August 8, 2012, 1:22 PM

        Or it could be KX (Kimono Xtreme)

  • SKOUTLAW FOR LIFE August 7, 2012, 5:08 PM

    admin please forget about the last post i sent you i have a differint post for you

  • SKOUTLAW FOR LIFE August 7, 2012, 5:14 PM

    tru has the lloyd zx spinner

    • gid617 August 7, 2012, 5:54 PM

      Do they actually have it? I know they have been listing it as avalible in stores on the internet though 😉

  • Tydroid Ninja of NINJAGONESS August 7, 2012, 5:29 PM

    Im totally going to get that new Lloyd 😛

  • SKOUTLAW FOR LIFE August 7, 2012, 5:39 PM

    i know right

  • Kai NRG Inferno August 8, 2012, 3:48 AM

    I was looking at the google images and I saw that there and me and my friend that was just a fake book.

    • gid617 August 8, 2012, 7:15 AM

      Are your sure? 😕 Amazon lists it as being avalible sometime in febuary. . . 😉

      • Kai NRG Inferno August 8, 2012, 10:57 AM

        I mean the book is real but it wont be advertised on ninjago series.

        • gid617 August 8, 2012, 11:50 AM

          Oh, yeah, I think I understand what you meant now 😉

      • Kai NRG Inferno August 9, 2012, 3:43 AM

        I thought it was out on the US amazon but not the UK amazon.

    • admin August 8, 2012, 8:41 AM

      Kai, neither of those books are fake. The comic-book by PaperCutz is very real. In fact I have personally gotten the press-release from the publisher and they asked me to write a post about it. I haven’t done it yet, but I’m planning to.

      And the Ninjago Character Encyclopedia is available for pre-order on Amazon. It is a book published by DK Publishing.

      • Kai NRG Inferno August 8, 2012, 10:58 AM

        I saw the character encyclopidia on tesco but it said it would be out in november.

  • Kai NRG Inferno August 8, 2012, 3:51 AM

    I like the look of the lloyd with the silver armour although Kai is my favourite ninja with gold armour.

    • gid617 August 8, 2012, 7:14 AM

      Yeah, Kai with gold armor looks realy cool. 😉

    • 4 Headed Dragon August 8, 2012, 1:20 PM

      No Zane’s cooler

      • smarty pants August 9, 2012, 2:37 AM

        yes zane looks best with gold armour

        • Kai NRG Inferno August 9, 2012, 3:47 AM

          I cant agree with you on that one I have kai zx and zane zx. I tried to paint a spare zane zx helmet and a spare kai dx body green (because i couldnt wait until my birthday) and it was an epic fail but not the helmet!

          • gid617 August 9, 2012, 5:44 PM

            Yep, Kai’s cooler 😉 😀

            • Sensei Zane August 17, 2012, 9:07 AM

              Do I reallly have to say which I prefer?

  • Dude August 8, 2012, 7:36 AM

    I’m thinking saving up for that book its avalible on amazon:D

    • gid617 August 8, 2012, 11:51 AM

      Me too. . . unfortuantly I haven’t got much farther than the thinking stage! 😆

  • 4 Headed Dragon August 8, 2012, 1:24 PM

    I think I might buy the character encyclopaedia. It would be a nice thing to have once Ninjago’s over.

    • Sensei Zane August 17, 2012, 9:07 AM

      Me too…Also I want that Lloyd!!!

  • How come we never saw a post on Monday?

    • legolotr August 8, 2012, 3:13 PM

      I think they were switching to the new server.

      • admin August 8, 2012, 4:04 PM

        Yeah, it was related to the server issues we experienced. The server guys needed to do some last tweeks and they asked me not to post anything new until they finished. I think we should be good to go from now on. Finally! At some point I will have to switch TBB over to a dedicated server, but probably not until the beginning of next year. Thank you all for your patience during the bumpy ride! 😉

  • SamuraiX August 8, 2012, 8:04 PM

    In the picture with the Ninjago Character
    Encyclopedia, it looks like The back of Lloyd’s
    Torso has the earth symbol on it.

    • gid617 August 9, 2012, 1:58 PM

      I believe it actually has a picture of a coiled up snake 😀

      • Sensei Zane August 17, 2012, 9:11 AM

        That looks alot like earth…

  • Kai PWR Inferno August 9, 2012, 3:51 AM

    I went to whsmith yesterday and I saw the star wars character Encyclopedia but not the Ninjago?????

    • admin August 9, 2012, 8:52 AM

      The Ninjago book is scheduled to be released in the fall. Right now it is available for presale on Amazon.

  • Kai PWR Inferno August 9, 2012, 4:19 AM


  • Kai PWR Inferno August 9, 2012, 5:01 AM

    What are slithraa’s cards?

    • gid617 August 9, 2012, 1:59 PM

      The only one we know is spirit guard – we probably won’t know the rest until he’s avalible for sale. 🙁

  • J.C. August 9, 2012, 5:18 PM

    I am DROOLING over Lloyd. And also, Papercutz is a good graphic novel company. It once published Bionicle graphic novels!

  • josh August 15, 2012, 8:31 PM

    oops a kid

    • admin August 15, 2012, 10:34 PM

      I was wondering about that. I figured that’s what you meant. 😉

  • Xi ninja August 18, 2012, 7:13 PM

    New. Kimonos. Are. Totally. Awesome!

  • Space(Nightrider) August 20, 2012, 2:32 PM

    You know, the new Kimono Lloyd, or (PWR Armor as I’ve heard), Does look good with Gold Armor. It has Gold Highlights so it matches well! Plus, I came up with something. Possibly that means he’s higher in rank? It goes Dark Grey, Silver, then Gold.

    There’s just one thing I wish LEGO would do, if there was going to be a Season 4.
    Make a GOLD NINJA! His suit could be Chrome Gold, with Transparent Blue Shoulder Armor, and Crown Armor on the hood, in the shape of the Nexus Force symbol. His element would be everything, but mainly Imagination. If there was a season 4, the enemies would be Maelstrom Stromlings! Though I don’t know if LEGO would be up for this idea, it’s still a cool possibility.

    P.S. – If anyone sees Pythor, or if he’s changed his name now cause he died, tell him I said “Hi!”.

    • Dillan August 21, 2012, 4:31 PM

      Hi I’m mr pythor space night rider

    • Vinh November 9, 2012, 7:51 PM

      It is actually called Kimono Xtreme, or KX for short.

  • Dillan August 21, 2012, 4:35 PM

    Lloyd new form is in season 3 but for some reason it come’s in season 2 year but it’s cool his suit is awesome what do you think admin

  • zach August 31, 2012, 10:15 AM

    awesome new lloyd

  • joey (yeoj ninja of smoke) September 3, 2012, 10:21 PM

    WOW! I think that I just figured out what happens next in the ninjago story line! Since the golden weapons got destroyed, the ninja have less power! I think that those swords that the ninja are holding in the comic will be the new weapons of power!


    • Kojoe4 September 4, 2012, 8:48 AM

      :O that actually makes sense!
      i dont really like the fact that they might have ALL of them use swords. i mean, sure, kai has a sword but cmon! jay needs nunchuks, cole needs a sythe, and Zane needs shurikens.

  • Fusion-Master of all (Purple Ninja) September 4, 2012, 9:20 AM

    I get why the toy lloyd is a taller minifigure, cos in the T.V. series llyod gets transformed taller with the tea. But what I don’t get is, if the ninjas went back in time and destroyed the mega weapon, shouldn’t the ninjas have there golden weapons again? Does garmadon have them or four arms? I don’t understand

  • james October 18, 2012, 1:25 AM


  • Dummy November 12, 2012, 10:59 AM

    Lloyd creeps me out does KX stand for…

  • gage November 21, 2012, 10:01 PM

    I like the new armour because its better than the first and the second armour

  • ben (blue ninja of invisibility) December 10, 2012, 7:58 PM

    Lloyd ZX would look totally awesome with gold armor.

  • zack yo July 1, 2013, 9:53 AM

  • Allison December 23, 2013, 10:37 PM
