A Father's Day surprise from the NINJAGO Movie

Posted by ,

Thought The LEGO NINJAGO Movie news was over for now? Not quite, fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your stance)! In addition to the 70613 Garma Mecha Man images from earlier today, more Lord Garmadon related news comes in the form of a tweet from NINJAGO design lead Simon Lucas.

In the tweet, Simon wishes us a happy 'Garmadon Day', of course referencing the fact that Garmadon is Lloyd's father. He also attaches an interesting photo with a brand new variant of Garmadon. The photo portrays Garmadon exhibiting a brown business suit, tie, toupee, papers and mug. The orange mug sports the text "NINJAGO's #1 DAD", with the word 'I'M' humorously scribbled in above it. Take a look at a larger photo, and further analysis, after the break...

Could this version of the evil warlord be part of the film's upcoming Collectable Minifigures slate? I very much hope so! It would certainly be a cheap way to acquire Garmadon, no matter the minifig's huge differences compared to his normal getup.

My curiosity also is piqued regarding why Garmadon appears like this. Was this before he truly became a villain in this universe, despite the black skin? Is it a disguise? I'm sure we'll find out in September.

Let us know what you think in the comments below. Please also tell us what other minifigures you expect or desire to be included in the CMFs, as well.

I have a good feeling that he'll be in the CMF series. He looks hilarious!

The same way we got a ton of humorous Batman getups in the Collectable Minifigures for TLBM, I guess.

^ I have a feeling we'll have much more variety in characters here.

I'm not big on LEGO Ninjago, but I do want the minifig of #1 Dad

That's racist

@legoverslinder
In the context of Ninjago it refers to how in the TV series he had normal (Yellow) skin prior to turning evil and mutating to have not only black skin but also a monstrous face and (seemingly) exposed bones. We don't know if this is true of the Movieverse yet though.

I didn't think about a mini-figure collector's series based on this movie but of course, it makes sense and follows suit for the other Lego movies. I only mention it because I have all the mini-figure series (except Mr. Gold) but I'm not a Ninjago fan. I may have to finally skip a series - my wife will be happy.

Oooh, Lord Business crossover potential! Maybe UniKitty ninja edition coming up as well...

Is that short body piece new? I guess it wouldn't be quite deep enough to accommodate the short (or any) minifig legs, right?

no the short body piece is just his normal extra arm piece but fliped so the bumpy side is in the back

I like it and I do hope for a CMF line to get one figure that has only appeared on the sticker book.

@Brick_Knight, who'd be stupid enough to elect Garmadon?! .... oh, I see... nevermind :(
