“We wanted to create a new LEGO Ninjago world with exciting characters and elements that invites new fans in and stays true to the iconic legacy. So, as well as welcoming back our well-known ninjas, we are equally excited to introduce new fantastic ninjas and dragon characters. This follows research we did with kids back in 2021, which showed they really wanted dragons to be front and center of the new story.” says Nigel Kong, Head of Product for LEGO Ninjago.

The new generation of Ninjago characters will come together and must unlock their true potential to find the well-known ninjas, who have gone missing in a new world of merged realms.

Ninjago city markets look incredible! And dragons are back!
The new spinners look interesting. I wanna see how those work. I’m really glad to see this wave. Very exciting!
The mech bike racer looks really cool. But what color is that? Light red?
Haha! It has a flushing toilet! And of course the elevator and the cable car. I love this so much! 😀
Sounds like a soft reboot of sorts, letting them continue to capitalize on the name Ninjago while moving on from characters that have exhausted their story ideas.
Dragons have always has a major presence in Ninjago, so it’s weird to see them pretend that this is a “return” to something, but Ninjago has definitely jumped around a lot of different genres in its time, so it’s also not surprising that they did some research to find which stuff kids like the most.
The mechs and vehicles look great as always. I can be a sucker for the dragons too, even though there aren’t really too many unique dragon designs. (Though this is Lego we’re talking about, one year’s sets aren’t constrained by previous sets released, as we know from the countless police stations over the years in Lego City.)
A transforming mech bike racer is actually a pretty cool concept…
I got a torso from 71799 LEGO Ninjago City Markets from an online Pick-A-Brick order by mistake roughly a month ago.
The torso is in medium azure, looking something like a shop shirt, on the front to the left there’s a name tag with the Ninjagon writing for HI, and on the left there’s a logo looking something like a mix of a C, a shooting target and a jellyfish. On the back, there’s the same logo in fuller size.
Now I can spot the character with the torso there in the bottom part of that lime green elevator thingie, but I don’t know her name.
Wow! Nice find! 😀
Considering how much I humble bragged about it online, it doesn’t seem to have gotte much attention, however… =S
I can’t believe we’re finally getting a Chamille minifigue!!! I am so excited!!!
This is like the best news ever. Especially the market set. I still think the original Ninjago city was the best of the series, but I can’t help and add the other ones. They are all amazing!
