Summer 2020 Ninjago Pics

Recently, the LEGO® Group released official pictures and set specifics for the upcoming summer 2020 Ninjago sets. While I already reported on the box art for these sets, these new images are much better quality. With the last round of photos, I also conducted some simple Instagram surveys to gauge interest. I include the results below.

70685 (Cole), 70686 (Kai), and 70687 (Lloyd) are the latest spinner toys from the Ninjago line. Each one retails for $13.99 in Canada. Smashing the lever on the back sends each ninja flying like a tornado.

Summer 2020 Ninjago concluding thoughts…

The most interesting development since my last articles on these sets is the board game aspect of 71717, 71719, 71721, and 71722. Each doubles as a stand alone play set and board game. However, you can also join them together to make a single, large game. The game is described as:

Ninja fans use the dice spinner to plot their way through the dungeons, avoiding traps, lava, moving bridges and the Skull Sorcerer’s warriors as they seek to grasp the Shadow Blade of Deliverance and free a ninja from prison.

While I am intrigued by the board game, I am still only 100% interested in Destiny’s Bounty from this series. Based on the images, I think the Ninjago Movie version of the ship is nicer. However, this new one still looks great and appears to have a lot of features. Additionally, I can’t wait to see how the two models fare in a side-by-side comparison. Finally, I am happy to note that almost all of these sets are a great value. What are your thoughts? Has more detailed information changed your mind about the summer 2020 Ninjago wave? Comment below or reach out on social media.

Until next time,
