Review: 30426 Stealthy Swamp Airboat

I am not the biggest Ninjago fan but while looking at the available polybags at my local Woolworths, this set caught my eye.

30426 Stealthy Swamp Airboat

30426 Stealthy Swamp Airboat (1)

This 2017 polybag set contains 40 parts and a single minifigure.

The set includes a Cole minifigure, as he appears in the 2017 lineup. His torso is dark bluish grey with extensive black and brown printing on the front and rear. The print is quite detailed and features a robe and rope pattern. This pattern continues on to the legs which have front printing. The arms provide a nice contrast in black.

The First Ninjago Movie Trailer Is Here

Ninjago Movie poster

While The LEGO Batman Movie is getting all the attention at the moment it’s not the only LEGO film hitting cinemas this year.

After being one of LEGO’s most popular original IPs Ninjago is making the move from cartoon to movie.

Featuring an all new voice cast (to the disappointment of some) and a standalone story The LEGO Ninjago Movie will be released in Australia on September 21st. Surprisingly that release date is actually in-line with the US for once.

Here is the first trailer…

Book Review: Ninjago – Build Your Own Adventure

Ninjago Cover Small

RRP $39.99
Available from most retailers

The Book

The Ninjago Build Your Own Adventure book is a new entry from DK books. Unlike older books that featured a selection of bricks, this title features a single set (and minifigure) with the book serving as inspiration for future building.

I suspect that there is going to be a mixed response to the format – some young LEGO fans might find it frustrating that they can’t build everything that they see in the book. It’s important to go into the book knowing what it is.

The book opens with the instructions for the included set. I liked that this is the opening of the book rather than stuck at the back as an add-on.

Once your model is built, you are greeted with a few pages of introduction. There are profiles of the Ninjago characters, and nice explanation of how the book works.

Ninjago Page Feature01

I really liked the included pages that explain the different types of parts that LEGO produce. It’s a great visual introduction to things like the difference between plates and tiles.
