New LEGO NINJAGO Movie promotional material

Posted by ,

As The LEGO NINJAGO Movie inches closer and closer to its release date, of course we will be seeing more and more promotional material surfacing. The latest comes from both IGN and People Magazine.

  • IGN gives us an official look at new character posters, featuring the ninja, Wu and Garmadon as well as their vehicles scaled to the film itself. You can see them after the break.
  • Then, People presents an interesting featurette on how the animators replicated Jackie Chan's stunt team for the martial arts moves seen in the film. A new scene or two is included, as well! You can watch it right here.

Lloyd

Garmadon

Master Wu

Kai

Nya

Cole

Jay

Zane

The battle for NINJAGO City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, also secret ninja warriors. Led by Master Wu, as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat the evil warlord Garmadon, who also happens to be Lloyd's dad. Pitting father against son, the epic showdown tests these fierce but undisciplined modern-day ninjas as they learn to check their egos and pull together to unleash the inner power of Spinjitzu.

Is the release date different between the US and UK?

Well that's cool. I really like Garmadon's mech!

I feel like zanes ice tank is the one that's been scaled down the most for the set, alongside Destiny's Bounty. That's obviously discounting Ninjago City which is cramming an entire city into one building.

The Ice Tank model is significantly more interesting than the actual set. The rest of the vehicles, I like the smaller ones better... Jay's Lightning Jet in particular looks really strange with the two dozen antenna pieces sticking out of it.

Looking forward to the real set of the Quake Mech!

Still seems crazy that Cole is the only main character not to have a wave one release of his vehicle. I'm guessing the whole 'balancing on a single wheel' bit's caused some major problems on how to build the set or something.

GrizBe, my theory is that the Quake Mech is gonna get destroyed early in the film, and Cole will get some other smaller, less-cool vehicle, and this one will be the 2018 set.

I wish Lego would release instructions, or at least an LDD file of the actual larger builds of these things. people could recreate them from parts from bricklink if they want to spend that much, and it would be cool to toy with them in LDD

I'm hoping the quake mech will have some sort of outriggers that hold it steady on the one wheel - otherwise it's going to become a bit of an issue - could become a popular one for multiples if that's a new wheel.

Very cool video! Gets me even more excited about the movie than I already was. Can't wait to take my son to see it. We had a blast at the Lego Batman Movie. We still haven't picked up any sets from this one yet, but hope to remedy that soon...Between TLNM, Star Wars, and the next waves of super-hero sets, I don't pretend to know how I will balance them all...Guess it's time to start looking for a second job ;-)

Zane's mech is smaller in the Lego set but the 1 from he movie is a lot bigger why do they do that!!

Zane's bow Looks nice with no arrow attached to the mold!

Is that a new look or did i just missed that out so far?

Garmadon's mech got the short end of the stick as a set, the movie version actually looks fantastic.

I wish they actually sold the movie versions...would be expensive and unrealistic, but some of those models look great!

Cheers @CapnRex101.

I thought the email said the 13th of October, the only people we get it before is Greece.

The only awesome thing among all those vehicles - is the dragon! The movie variant is much more cooler than set. Perfect colors and "chinese" design!

@thelegosensei: in all honesty, i highly doubt that Lego would ever do that, as it would cannabilize set sales. Now, don't get me wrong, i'm not saying it wouldn't be cool, or a good idea, just not realistic. But hey, a guy can dream, right? Anywho, getting back on topic, i agree with the general consensus regarding the Quake Mech being absent from the first wave. makes you wonder, dosen't it?

I am so glad that my Lego buy from this set and next year are almost done (now Lego releases some new sets for 2018 that are needs for my City and I am like: "Just when you think you are out, they pull you right back.").

I think the most likely reason for Cole's mech being delayed is just a matter of logistics—with the first wave already having quite a few big, expensive sets, it might not make as much sense to release all the mechs in the same wave. It's also possible that Cole's mech might be a retailer exclusive—in that case, the retailer might prefer to have one exclusive item to release in a later wave instead of launching multiple exclusives at once.

Need that Cole's mech, haven't wanted black bricks this bad in a minute!

Why are sets released before the movie? You don't want the sets until you've seen it. I don't get it.

@Dude45: That's not true at all. If it's an appealing toy in and of itself and a movie people are excited for, then a lot of kids will want it even before the movie comes out. In many cases, it might even make kids more excited for the movie than they were before so they can learn the story behind the cool new toys they just bought or received as gifts.

This isn't just a LEGO thing, either — lots of movie-based toys come out a month or more before their respective movies, and it's been that way for well over a decade.

Exo-Force anyone?

I am really confused as to how they will be in the movie as the garmadom mech looks nothing like the set so that could mean some of the other builds could be the same
