So tell me what's the thing with ninjago and why is it still going? And what's your favourite season or set?

>>1217 >I think the show really went bad when they shortened the episode length to 11 minutes I never got why they shortened it, the show was good at having 22 minutes, you could show enough lore and action into it. The 11 minutes deel.shallow and bland, the show generally became more boring. They explored Ninjago so much that need to make up shit. For instance why didn't the mountain people help with attacking anyone? Even the stone army which technically nearly won? It's clear that they were made up. And the sea people? What the FUCK? Funnilly enough we haven't explored even an inch of the dark island, they could easilly make up stuff for it without problems. But no, everything must be in Ninjago. They lost intrest in the series since the movie came. They deleted the main characters powers, with which they would defeat the sons of garmadons without a problem. They made up bullcrap that contradocts earlier seasons and much more. And never explained change in personalities and design to appeal to the moviefags. Transformers Could do it, because they make new universes for nearly every new show. But this is the same show and the same universe. The post-movie era is bassically Korra for ninjago
>>1237 >They explored Ninjago so much that need to make up shit. And integrate every other theme into its setting so kids have some sort of emotional link to it, making it easier to sell sets. Why the fuck didn't they kill off Cole, his VA's the one that died and not Nya's.
>>1238 >Why the fuck didn't they kill off Cole, his VA's the one that died and not Nya's. Cole was there from beggining if they killed him it would be problematic. But nya, she wasn't even a thing in the pilot and lloyd has been more of character then her. But thanks for spoilering the last season, bothways I'm not gonna watch it. >integrate every other theme into its setting so kids have some sort of emotional link to it, making it easier to sell sets. Well that's true. I don't even like the fact that they use the nudesigns in the legacy sets. But I don't get why they didn't continue with the ninjago spinijitsu game.
>>1239 >But thanks for spoilering the last season Bro, I used the spoiler tag for a reason. You just straight up greentext it and act like a victim?
>>1245 I'm not mad actually, nor I'm acting the Victor. I was serious with it that I wouldn't watch it. I hate the post-S7 designs and story. Also have you read the way of the departed? https://ninjago.fandom.com/wiki/Way_of_the_Departed It's supposed to fill in between the S7 and S8

I wish there were more photos of old store shelves online. They are perhaps the closest thing we'll ever get to a time machine.
Open file (107.70 KB 1024x654 E0upqoqWUAYcXz4.jpg)
I wonder what happened to all those Lego sets on the shelves. I know they were sold, but how many kids did they make happy? I wonder where they are now, whether they're still in the hands of their original owners, even if long forgotten about in storage, or were they sold on to make more children happy? Have all of these sets managed to survive to this day or have brave Lego men been sent to the bin after being played with too much and eventually broken?
>>1101 I think the older lego plans we have at home are enough for me.
>>1101 I had some hand-me-down LEGO® BRAND BRICKS™ but this was the first set that I got in a sealed box

So you're looking for some challenges, huh. Well you've come to the right place anon 'cos I've got a whole dossier on them. And remember to check my office regularly in case I manage to dig something more up, y'hear? Good luck.

>>1193 >illegal building techique Surprisingly, this is technically a legal build. Lego has incorporated a Technic pin / 1x1 brick with studs on 5 sides into numerous builds, because the open space inside the studs allows the pin to sit inside the brick without being stressed (this doesn't work inside a normal brick because the extended areas on the lips of the pin stick out farther than the inner space of the brick). My fishman uses the same method; the two lips of the pin rest inside the open studs (concealed by the 1x1 eye pattern tiles). To my knowledge, Lego only uses this technique with the SNOT brick that has studs on five sides; this is probably because kids can assemble it without any specific positioning and the piece can spin more or less freely and will normally settle in a position that doesn't stress the pin. As I said, mine is "technically" a legal build because I made the effort of aligning the pin lips to the gaps formed by the open studs
>>1196 I was joking, my friend, its a very nice build. Very creative use of an otherwise relatively useless part (the Batman cowl)
>>1197 Thanks! I intentionally set out to use that piece for something else, and after I flipped it around in my hands a few times I realized it looked like fishman jowls. Also for the record it's a Batgirl cowl, which is why it has the bar extension on the back to attach her ponytail.
>>1199 >it's a Batgirl cowl Fair enough, I never got any of the Batgirl figures. My last Batman set was the two-tone Twoface armoured car set.
I'm adding "Make a stained-glass window" to the list of challenges.

Season 4 was pretty easy to get through despite some repetitive 'use your app, kids!' scenes. The powers don't even do anything in the show besides initiating a generic 'armor glows and they're suddenly better at fighting' scene. Aaron (archer dude) actually gets some proper character development without having to rely on the plot, Clay has the obvious plot twists to his story as the 'main character'. Pity the rest pretty much stay the same, the villains still feel like they have more personality. The season has a proper ending, but they left a few 'to be continued' parts and I can imagine why fans would feel robbed after the next season never got to be (despite there being a wave of sets based on it). AR apps are cursed.
>>427 I remember watching the first season when it aired on tv then nothing. But I remember seeing the lamia girl porn somewhere.
>>1213 >But I remember seeing the lamia girl porn somewhere. Gee I wonder what kind of site would have people posting that shit.

Old licensed sets had a touch of LEGO's own creativity in them. Models weren't perfect recreations, and that's where the soul lies, since you use your imagination - or even better - improve them yourself, and thus draw enjoyment from them. Nowadays every licensed theme has specific unique pieces made for them that are designed specifically after the original thing from the source material.
Why make a star wars blaster out existing pieces and your own imagination when you can just make a one-piece mold of a blaster, right? Why try to build anything instead of just making specific molds for everything like all other toys do?
Why stop there, why have your own pirate theme you can do anything with and make incredible shit (like Vikings) when you can just license POTC and join the mainstream? Why have a cheeky aussie explorer when you can just make Indiana Jones the only cheeky explorer in existence? No need for originality.
I excuse Star Wars '99 because LEGO Space/Tron series was long retired and there was a vacuum in space themes around that time, but doing it too much just makes it pointless. What's the point if it's just an imitation of existing media? All other licensed toys already do that. It makes me sad, but I guess you have to follow the money sometimes.
You hit the nail on the head there anon. It's a case of modern licensed themes being made by Lego while older Lego making licensed themes, if that makes sense. New licensed themes are accurate representations of their source material (hyper-detailed minifigures, heavy reliance on specialised pieces with no re-usability, and no evidence of it being a Lego set as it feels more like a scaled model) whereas the older themes had a distinct Lego feel to them. If I had to single out a specific theme that shows this, it'd be Harry Potter. Back in 2001 the sets were wildly different to the movies (I don't remember Hogwarts being that garishly coloured!) but had the Lego touch to them - the modern sets have lost this completely.

I've looked online and find that this change seems to be noticeable around 2006-08 with a slew of licensed themes each with unique pieces and less of a focus on rebuilding sets, though the first major change has to be the switch to flesh tones.

Minidolls Legoman 05/18/2020 (Mon) 02:59:00 No.474 [Reply]
Minidolls! First released in 2012, they were exclusively used in the "girl" lines until The Lego Movie 2, after which time they immediately went back to being exclusively used in the girl lines. Minidolls have fewer points of articulation than minifigs and are thus more challenging to customize. Let's see your custom minidolls!
