LEGO Ninjago fans can rejoice as images of many of the 2016 LEGO Ninjago sets are now available. As we have discussed previously (see links at the end of this post), next year pirates are going to be back, and as you can see from the pictures, the sets have an interesting pirate-ish, steampunk-ish, vibe. Kind of like what we have seen with MetalBeard from The LEGO Movie. Below is are the pictures and description of the 2016 LEGO Ninjago sets. 🙂

I very much like the color-scheme of these sets. The #70603 LEGO Ninjago Raid Zeppelin and the #70605 LEGO Ninjago Misfortune’s Keep are particularly interesting, and could be used even outside of the LEGO Ninjago universe for some steampunk-type explorations. Also, nice to have three new dragons! There are many other LEGO Ninjago sets scheduled for next year, and while we don’t have pictures yet, you can find their names and set-numbers under the 2016 LEGO Ninjago section of the Brickset database. And you can find the currently available sets under the LEGO Ninjago section of the Online LEGO Shop.
