With the release of The LEGO Ninjago Movie this weekend, let’s continue looking at all the new sets related to the film. You will find links to previous reviews at the end of this post, and today we will examine some of the most awesome sets in the collection; the ones with the mechs! There is no other LEGO theme that includes so many amazing robotic vehicles all at once, unless you want to count the old LEGO Exo-Force theme. 🙂
The LEGO Ninjago Movie collection include mechs that look like animals, birds, giant walking robots, and even a shark! The collection is like a feast for those who love to build robotic vehicles of every shape and style! And they are also an excellent study for those who would like to learn how to build them. There is a mech for everyone here!
As there are so many mechs in The LEGO Ninjago Movie collection, in this overall review we will only look at each of them briefly to highlight their special features. I will also include video-reviews of the sets by JANGBRiCKS, so you can check them out in more detail.
➡ #70611 LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE WATER STRIDER: What I like most about this set is how large and intimidating it is, and how well it matches the LEGO Ultra Agents vehicles. Very sturdy too! Here is the official description: Launch into battle against the shark army and pretend to walk on water and climb walls with this awesome mech. The Water Strider features a 360-degree rotating minifigure cockpit, 6-stud rapid shooter and 4 posable legs and feet to create powerful battle poses. Includes 4 minifigures: Nya, Kai, Puffer and Shark Army Thug. Water Strider measures over 7” (18cm) high, 11” (30cm) long and 11” (30cm) wide. 494 pieces. Price: $39.99 – BUY HERE
➡ #70612 LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE GREEN NINJA DRAGON: It seems like LEGO designers are really fond of dragons, because they include dragons in so many LEGO themes; the old LEGO Vikings line, LEGO Castle, LEGO Elves, and of course LEGO Ninjago. This two-feet-long dragon is a beautiful representation of the evolution of LEGO dragons in both building techniques and style. While this is technically a mech, it could very well pass for a real dragon. Here is the official description: Outwit The Green Ninja’s evil father Garmadon with this mighty mech. The Green Ninja Mech Dragon features articulated snapping jaws, a fully posable body, wheel-activated swooshing tail, 2 leg-mounted stud shooters and 2 hidden pop-out thrusters. Includes 4 minifigures: The Green Ninja, Wu, Garmadon and Charlie. Green Ninja Mech Dragon measures over 5” (13cm) high, 23” (60cm) long and 4” (12cm) wide. 544 pieces. Price: $49.99 – BUY HERE
➡ #70613 LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE GARMA MECHA MAN: So big, so dark, so many sharp teeth! The shape of this massive mech is kind of a combination of a shark and Garmadon himself. If you like evil mechs, this is the ultimate badguy machine! Here is the official description: Help Lloyd protect civilian Pat from attack by Garma Mecha Man with this awesome set. This huge and highly posable mech features an opening minifigure cockpit for Garmadon, spring-loaded shark blaster, ammo belt and a fish tank. Includes 4 minifigures: Garmadon, Great White, Lloyd and Pat. Garma Mecha Man measures over 11” (30cm) high, 5” (14cm) long and 9” (24cm) wide. 747 pieces. Price: $59.99 – BUY HERE
➡ #70614 LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE LIGHTNING JET: In contrast to the previous mech this one light and fast, like a bird! And while it looks fragile, it is actually quite sturdy and can be maneuvered by a very handy hidden handle. Here is the official description: Save Ed and Edna from the shark army’s crab with Jay’s Lightning Jet in this thrilling set. The jet has a handle for easy pick-up-and-play and maximum swooshability, plus an opening minifigure cockpit, spring-loaded shooter and trigger-activated rotating electro-disc. The crab features posable legs, a snapping pincer and 6-stud rapid shooter. Includes 6 minifigures: Jay, Ed, Edna, Crusty, Jelly and Shark Army Thug. Lightning Jet measures over 7” (20cm) high, 17” (44cm) long and 11” (30cm) wide. 876 pieces. Price: $59.99 – BUY HERE
➡ #70615 LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE FIRE MECH: This set reminds me so much of the old LEGO Exo-Force mechs, and it is my personal favorite. It is actually much larger you might expect; 14 inches tall! The construction is very stable, but this also means that the knee joints don’t bend. I don’t mind this at all, but some LEGO fans do. Here is the official description: Get set for sizzling battle action with this huge and highly posable mech. The Fire Mech features an opening minifigure cockpit, 2 shoulder disc shooters and 2 arms with non-shooting fire blasters. Includes 6 minifigures: Kai, Zane, Lauren, Henry, Hammer Head and Jelly. Fire Mech measures over 14” (36cm) high, 4” (11cm) long and 8” (21cm) wide. 944 pieces. Price: $69.99 – BUY HERE
➡ #70616 LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE ICE TANK: When I first saw this set it reminded me of the Star Wars Star Destroyers, and it also looks like an icicle. Whatever it is, is certainly an interesting shape, and it also comes with some unique play-features, which you can see in the video-review below. Here is the official description: Help Zane save Patty Keys and Torben from the shark soldiers with this action-packed set. This cool vehicle features an opening minifigure cockpit, big tracks, ice cannon with 6-stud rapid shooter, and a rotating ice container. Includes 5 minifigures: Zane, Shark Army Thug, Angler, Patty Keys and Torben. Ice Tank measures over 8” (21cm) high, 12” (31cm) long and 9” (23cm) wide. 914 pieces. Price: $79.99 – BUY HERE
The video-player below includes reviews of all six mechs by JANGBRiCKS. He will show you all the play-featured, minifigures, and other details of each set. You can use the drop-down list in the upper left corner to select the review you would like to watch, or you can just let them play one after another. Each review is about 10 minutes long.
As you can see, there is a mech here for every taste and style, and as I mentioned at the beginning, they are also great study material for mech builders. They are all excellent designs, but very different, so I would suggest that you go with the one you like the most. You can’t really go wrong with any of them, especially with such unusually low prices! All the sets are listed under The LEGO Ninjago Movie section of the Online LEGO Shop.
