Summer 2022 Ninjago Sets

The upcoming LEGO® releases keep rolling in with the announcement of the summer 2022 Ninjago sets. Nine sets were revealed this week, all taking inspiration from season 15, otherwise known as Crystalized. Ninjago fans will likely delight in the new character designs and impressive designs. The Crystal King is particularly impressive. Sadly, the locals and buildings are lacking for Ninjago City fans. Read on for the details or click here for more summer 2022 news.

Closing thoughts…

Ninjago is a great theme for colorful and detailed Minifigures. Additionally, I am a fan of theme for the various temple builds and Ninjago City sets. Sadly, this wave includes very little of that. The only option coming close is the Crystal King Temple, but it doesn’t intrigue me enough to spend. The Crystal King himself looks impressive, but again, not enough for me to purchase it. Otherwise, I feel the Summer 2022 Ninjago sets are just a tired feeling collection of vehicles. As a theme, Ninjago offers too many similar jets, mechs, motorbikes, and raiders. I think the theme needs a some new life and direction. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below or reach out on social media.

Until next time,
