Honestly, I was excited for this set even before you pointed all of that out. Fuck yes.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie garmadon, Garmadon, GARMADON! Set Description

Image
garmadon, Garmadon, GARMADON! – fans help Lloyd save hotdog guy and braces girl from the Garmadon Shark Mech, which features two opening cockpits, snapping jaws, posable legs and feet and two spring-loaded shooters. Available exclusively at Toys”R”Us stores nationwide. ($79.99)
Wonder if "nationwide" will include Canada? Americans tend to think of us as part of their "domestic" market. No pics of the actual set yet.

Looks interesting, but I think the price kind of tells you it's probably not going to be the greatest set.

Love it. Can't wait for the movie to get out too. If the upward trend of quality goes up with each of the movies, (lego movie, then lego batman movie, and now lego ninjago movie), then the Lego ninjago movie should end up being pretty great, imo.

What craigs, but has no craig, yet craigs all that craigs?
Some say the answer is craig, but only few know the real Craig. Soon, all will craig. Craigstorm is coming. :warhead:

Give that nutcracker some proper limbs, carve a cockpit into his head and there you have a robo for MFS.

The women that work on the New Horizons team, not a set.

My friend is the one in the glasses and dark hair, looks just like her.


Maia Weinstock is the same person who created the NASA set.
