According to the official LEGO forums, the Ninjago theme might be returning in 2014! Due to overwhelming popularity of Ninjago, LEGO may have decided to continue the line after all. Ninjago has been one of most successful themes from LEGO and we were confused on why it would be discontinued in 2013.
The Legends of Chima, which was thought to replace Ninjago, isn’t in stores yet but LEGO has decided to make this update public. LEGO has heard the voices of the many fans who were distraught to see that it was ending. It might be a strategic move to test the market to see whether Chima or Ninjago would be more beneficial to the company. There’s still no details of what the continuation of the theme will consist of but stay tuned for more information about this exciting announcement. Let the speculation begin! Below is the official announcement for LEGO Moderator, Keighlian:
