No, Nya becomes Samurai X. Look in the giant samurai set, or just go to Brickipedia and search "Samurai X".

So instead of becoming a magical ninja, she becomes the masked psychic sibling of one of the protagonist who goes around in a custom red mecha?

O.O... Oh... My... GOD! NYA IS A CHAR!!! :brick:

Yeah, here I thought Kai was the protagonist, and he ends up only with a cool motorcycle and a new outfit. No green ninja powers or epic samurai mech for him.

As in Lord Garmadon, Sauron and Evil Ash clone's illegitimate lovechild? That Lloyd Garmadon?

I'm still working on getting the first wave Ninjago sets. If I remember correctly Lego has a big sale the day after Saturnalia, right?

Also does anyone else think that the new Star Wars line seems a bit strange? Only like 7 new sets not including the new planet impulse buys. And only the battle pack is Clone Wars. Are there sets we don't know about?

EDIT: I'm glad Yule becomes Saturnalia on this board but I want to be clear I mean December 26th

EDIT2: :silver: I guess I can't talk about that holiday where we buy each other things without the board changing all the words and making it confusing...

Actually, there is another battle pack with a scout trooper, stormtrooper, and two endor rebels. ( :D )

We had a decent Ninjago Sale here due to Yule, I've grabbed myself an Earth Dragon finally, for a decent price.

Also, there's a review of the series 6 minifigs on eurobricks:

http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.p ... opic=63744

A squad (or two) of minotaurs is a must, not sure about the celtic man tho... he looks more like hero material. Also planning on getting a 'flamenco girl' to add to my collection of maidens, and a genie.

I meant it seems like the only Clone Wars set is the battlepack and also the Geonosian cannon. I guess TLG has run out of ideas for Clone Wars. They haven't really touched season 3 yet,

I like the minotaur, but for me the space girl and the highlander/celtic guy are must-haves.

I thought that myself. If only lego would go into the expanded universe a bit more. There is SOOOO much cool stuff in there that would be great for a lego set. I'm not talking KOTOR here, (But that would be unspeakably epic) but it they would bother to look at some of the other, lesser-known designs they may very well have some great-selling sets. Ideas:

6. Rebel T-4B tank or a lighter version. (The rebels need some serious tanks)
7. CIS GAT, Super tank, or HAG. (The CIS needs some bigger guns)
8. Republic UT-AT (they already made the AT-OT, so why not?) or AT-XT
9. Imperial 2-M repulsor tank, AT-MP or AT-PT (The Imperials need something other than the AT-AT, AT-ST, and TIE crawler, which are all pretty well-known)

Quik question: What's the story behind the 2012 Nijago stuff?

That set is tits! I love the Endor rebel uniforms and helmets. Only have a few from the Battle of Endor set but now I can have a bunch more =^.^=

Plus I love the speeder bikes and the scout trooper's helmets. This set = win.
