The Ninjago line of building sets made a welcome return in 2014 replacing the poorly received Legends of Chima.

 

Ninjago is back!

Ninjago to be adapted for a Warner Bros. film

NinjagoHollywood Reporter have broken the news that Ninjago is to be adapted by brothers Dan and Kevin Hageman for a feature length film.

The film will be produced by Warner Bros. who are also producing The LEGO Movie.

One of the key elements from the report is “the film will feature a new take that diverges from the TV series.” Interesting that the Hageman brothers would stray from their tried and tested formula of Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu we will have to wait and see…

 

Ninjago to be extended beyond 2013

NinjagoGreat news for LEGO Ninjago fans!

LEGO Ninjago continues to be as popular as ever and as a result The LEGO Group have decided to extend the line beyond the end of this year!

Marketing Week have more on the story…

LEGO answer seven year olds plea

A seven year old boy from Wiltshire who lost a LEGO® Ninjago Jay ZX minifigure on a shopping trip to Sainsburys with his father has had the figure repaced by the kind staff at LEGO.

In a letter to LEGO, Luka Apps wrote:

“Hello.

My name is Luka Apps and I am seven years old.

With all my money I got for Christmas I bought the Ninjago kit of the Ultrasonic Raider. The number is 9449. It is really good.

My Daddy just took me to Sainsburys and told me to leave the people at home but I took them and I lost Jay ZX at the shop as it fell out of my coat.

I am really upset I have lost him. Daddy said to send you a email to see if you will send me another one.

I promise I won’t take him to the shop again if you can”

LEGO responded by saying:

“We are very sorry to hear about you losing your Jay minifigure but it sounds like your dad might have been right about leaving it at home. It sounds like you a very sad about it too.

Normally we would ask that you pay for a new one if you lose one of your minifigures and need to have it replaced.

My bosses told me I could not send you one out for free because you lost it but, I decided that I would put a call into Sensei Wu to see if he could help me.

Luka, I told Sensei Wu that losing your Jay minifigure was purely an accident and that you would never ever ever let it happen ever again.

He told me to tell you, “Luka, your father seems like a very wise man. You must always protect your Ninjago minifigures like the dragons protect the Weapons of Spinjitzu!”

Sensei Wu also told me it was okay if I sent you a new Jay and told me it would be okay if I included something extra for you because anyone that saves their Christmas money to buy the Ultrasonic Raider must be a really big Ninjago fan.

So, I hope you enjoy your Jay minifigure with all his weapons. You will actually have the only Jay minifigure that combines 3 different Jays into one! I am also going to send you a bad guy for him to fight!

Just remember, what Sensei Wu said: keep your minifigures protected like the Weapons of Spinjitzu! And of course, always listen to your dad.

You will see an envelope from LEGO within the next two weeks with your new minifigures. Please take good care of them, Luka.

Remember that you promised to always leave them at home.”

Excellant customer services from the LEGO team, a lesson other companies could learn from!
