LEGO 71712 Ninjago Temple of Madness

LEGO 71712 Ninjago Temple of Madness

Of all the new 2020 LEGO Ninjago Sets coming out – I think that set 71712 The Temple of Madness is my favorite. Not just because it has 6 minifigures, or is for ages 9 and up, but because it has the most detail, is the most architecturally relevant, and has a ton of play-ability. I like the way they are using technic elements in Ninjago to hold up the lamps for instance. But there is so much more

LEGO 71711 Ninjago Jay’s Cyber ​​Dragon

LEGO 71711 Ninjago Jay's Cyber ​​Dragon

I’m not exactly sure what a cyber dragon is, but it seems pretty cool. It is a mech that acts like a dragon? Is a dragon that has cyborg parts? Do you ride it, or sit inside? I cant quite figure it out. No matter, it is what it is, and that’s all that matters. This LEGO Cyber Dragon comes with 5 minifigures and has 518 pieces.

LEGO Ninjago 71710 Ninja Tuning Vehicle

LEGO 71710 Ninjago Ninja Tuning Car

Did you ever see the movie “Back to the Future” I think it was at the end of the first one when the Doc flys onto Marty’s street in the Delorian Time Machine. Marty gets into the car, and then the car launches into the air slowly, with the wheels and tires folding underneath the carriage for aerodynamics. That’s what this Car reminds me of, but it it also part helicopter. So there is that. What do you think of it? It comes with 4 minifigures and over 400 pieces.

The New Trans Clear Minifigure stand

New LEGO trans Clear Minifigure Stand

Have you seen these new trans clear minifigure stands? They are included in the new LEGO DC Minifigure CMF packs, but I expect to be seeing them in lots of new sets coming out in 2020. These tiny, clear pieces have a 45-degree angle and have a inverted LEGO stud at one end with a hole and the other is the perfect size to fit in the claw hand.

LEGO 71706 Ninjago Coles Speeder

LEGO 71706 Ninjago Coles Speeder

As a parent I want to make sure my kid is playing with something cool, but isn’t too violent. This is where LEGO ninjago comes in. I know that they are not vulgar or graphic, teach good lessons, but are still interesting enough that the series and toys will keep his attention. Yes there are swords, and magic and stuff like that but overall the lessons learned from the shows are valuable. The Cole’s speeder is a set designed for younger builders, starting at age 4, and comes with 2 minifigures and 52 pieces.
