The Ninjago: The Visual Dictionary cover minifigure is...

Posted by ,

...probably going to be a disappointment for Ninjago fans hoping for a new and exclusive minifig.

The book, due for publication in October, will come with 'Zane Rebooted' (BrickLink njo099) which also comes in 70726 Destructoid.

I am told that "Zane’s robes are wrapped with a silver sash and feature an ice element symbol surrounded by pulsing ice energy. He also has his signature flat-top hairstyle on show."

As you can see from the picture, it's supplied assembled which is in contrast to those in recent DK books which are not.

I have a copy of the book (thanks DK UK) and will post a review as soon as I'm able to do so.

So sad :( Although I'm still waiting for your review too see what's the differences :D

The minifig is identical. There are no differences, except that this one is not made in a LEGO factory in Europe or the Americas.

I'm a little bit disappointed that it's not an ACTUAL exclusive minifigure (seems the DK books for non-licensed themes are getting worse and worse about that), but on the plus side, it is at least a figure I don't already own (since I never bought #70726 Destructoid). I wasn't yet 100% decided on how I'd get my hands on that figure, but since I've preordered this book I guess the decision's been made for me.

Hmmm, they must have decided on this figure before they planned to include him in destructoid...

Maybe it's limited edition because the Destructoid is ALSO limited edition? *scratches head*

Yawn... Although, that might be a better book than the lame-o Character Encyclopedia.

Though a bit disappointing on the minifig, I'll still keep the preorder just for the book content.

But seriously they should loose the "Limited Edition" claim since it's no longer that, can we sue DK for false advertising? :P

I was hoping for either a new pythor or zane in gold as we saw in the digiverse

Will dk ever do a marvel visual dictionary? They have the batman one.

This is rather disappointing actually. A Pythor would have had me begging at my local bookstore with my money, and another exclusive fig would have meant that I picked this book up anyway at some point. Now... a fig I already have? No sale. I will save the £10 or so for something else I think :-) At least I could put up with a new variant on Classic Luke, or Firox from the LoC book, since, though they are similar to other existing figs, they are still "limited edition" with their differences. This just isn't "limited edition" or "exclusive" at all, even if this variant does only appear in one limited retail set.

I was hoping for a new white Pythor or any of the digiverse ninja. At least I dont have to buy the Destructoid.

The figure I was most hoping for is Nya in her current costume from the TV show (not her samurai costume that comes in #70728, but her regular clothes). It'll be really disappointing if we never get that outfit as a minifigure at all, since it's a really great design, and not just a design from other themes with color variations like a lot of the costumes worn by secondary characters in the Ninjago TV show. The last Nya minifigure besides the two versions of her in samurai garb was the 2011 version, which didn't even have back printing of any kind!

That's... disappointing. No Dareth? Nya? Ugh...

I've been waiting in anticipation for this for ages and I am sorely dissapointed. A white puthor would have quickly made it a must buy and would have quickly found its way in my top 5 favourite minifigs. I just hope they put him in a set next year or something. I neeeeeed that fig.

The most disappointing Visual Dictionary minifig to-date, even the Star Wars "medal" figs, as boring as those are, are better... oh well.

Really, even though I'm Zane's fan, Naya from Friends' side could win this easily. There should be lots of exclusive decals from the cartoon story that are allowed to choose.
