Best Lego Ninjago Set Ever?
Lego released their first Ninjago line in 2002. Since then they have created many different Ninjago sets which are based on various stories from the original series. There are over 300 pieces included in these sets, and each one has its own unique design. The most popular of them all is the Battle of the Five Armies set which contains 730 pieces.
The second largest set is the City in Danger set which contains 690 pieces. These two sets are very similar in size, but there are some differences between them. For example, the City in Danger has a larger number of minifigs and accessories than does the Battle of Five Armies. Another difference is that the City in Danger comes with a special feature called “City Under Siege” which allows players to play against computer opponents.
There are other sets like the Island Adventure, the Maze Chase, and others. All of them contain around 200 or less pieces. They are usually smaller than the Battle of Five Armies set and come with fewer minifigs.
The most popular minifigs in all of the Ninjago Lego sets are the Green Ninja, and the White Ninja. These two characters are the main characters in the original series, while some of the others were introduced in later seasons. Other than these two, there are a few other minifigs that are very popular such as Kai, Nya, Jay, Cole, Zane, Garmadon, and Sensei Wu.
The theme was very popular in the past, but it has declined quite a bit. Nowadays most children are more interested in other themes such as Hero Factory, Chima, and of course the ever-popular Elsas and the Disney Princesses.
Although Ninjago is no longer as popular as it once was, there are still many avid fans who are eagerly anticipating the upcoming sets that will be released in January of next year.
