The time is now here. LEGO has released a new teaser trailer for the LEGO Ninjago Hands of Time which was first talked about back at San Diego Comic Con. This new season introduces a new character who presumably is able to control time. There’s no mentioning of when the season will start but it’ll be sometime next year.
LEGO Ninjago fans, your turn is next to get official images for the winter 2017 sets. Hoth Bricks has found the images of the new sets which are based on The Hands of Time storyline which was briefly shown off earlier this year at San Diego Comic Con.

A few weeks ago, I reported the LEGO Ninjago Stone Armor Cole (5004393) was found at Toys R Us stores here in the US. It looks like the promotion for the minifigure has begun. From now until November 11, you can get it for free with LEGO purchases of $30 or more. TRU was hiding them behind the registers and if you don’t get it when you check out, ask for it. The item number for it is 313133.
I asked my store if they would sell it individually and they gave me a strict no on that. I’ve seen images of stores selling it by itself for $6.99/$7.99 each so your mileage may vary and depends on how lenient your store is. Also they said that after the promotion ends, they would not sell the leftovers like they do with the minifigure polybags and the LEGO representative will come by and take them back. If this is the case, hopefully we’ll see some sort of LEGO promo next year for it. If you remember, LEGO did that with the Easter Minifigure (5004468) aka the Chicken Suit Guy earlier this year.
A reader has sent in some information about the LEGO Ninjago Cole (5004393) minifigure box which was revealed back in June. They have stated that they found them in stock at Toys R Us and are available for purchase for $7.99 each. I believe Toys R Us Canada has it available for free with qualifying LEGO purchases of $25 or more this week.
If you’re not familiar with this version of Cole, it is the Stone armor version of the character in the Rebooted storyline from a few years ago and hasn’t been released before. The box itself is similar to the LEGO Nexo Knights King’s Guard (5004390) which opens up in the middle to reveal the minifigure along with a background of the theme. It was given away as part of a voucher promotion from the 2016 LEGO Calendar. The December 2016 LEGO Calendar does show that will be getting a 2017 Wall Calendar but there’s no word on whether there will be any redeemable vouchers like they did in recent years.
As mentioned before, the LEGO Ninjago Stone Armor Cole (5004393) minifigure box was found at a Toys R Us store but your mileage may vary at this time. I’ll try to check the system at work tomorrow to see if I can find out the item number for it or if someone knows the number, please let us know in the comments. I’ll also try to see if there are any upcoming promos here for it as well.
Halloween is coming up in a few weeks and it’s about that time to search for costumes for kids. Earlier this year at New York Toy Fair, Disguise showed off some new costumes for LEGO Nexo Knights and LEGO Ninjago. Fast forward to last month where Disguise announced a multi-year deal with LEGO to produce official costumes. The LEGO costumes are now available and Disguise has sent us a medium-sized LEGO Ninjago Lloyd Prestige Costume. The contents of the box include the tunic, pants, mask, and a pair of hands.
Last year around this time, it was reported that local costume company, Disguise had announced they were partnering up with LEGO to produce official Halloween costumes in a multi-year deal. We got a sneak peek at some of the costumes at the New York Toy Fair but now you can already find them in stores such as Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, K-Mart, and Spirit Halloween costume shops.
The nice folks over at Disguise has sent over a press kit with their official press release from a few days ago as well as some product images. They’ve also sent over a review copy of the LEGO Ninjago Lloyd Prestige Costume so I’ll be review that soon. Check out the full press release and images below.
