My thoughts on the January 2023 Ninjago sets…

While this wave might interest hardcore fans of theme, I do find Ninjago has gone the way of LEGO® Friends. The theme is tired and rehashing the same concepts over and over. While I like the look of a couple of the dragons, I will skip this wave. With that said, the value of the sets tends to be good and they generally include a good number of Minifigures. What do you think of the January 2023 Ninjago sets? Let us know in the comments below or reach out on social media.

Until next time,
