Ever since LEGO decided to make Ninjago an evergreen theme, each new season has brought a wealth of awesome colors and elements. The striking red and black color scheme on this mono-tracked vehicle attracted my attention, but it was the new recolors and minifig accessories that made me snatch it off the shelf.

Ever since last year’s 70734 Master Wu Dragon set, I’ve been rather enamored with Ninjago’s dragons. In the last couple of years the dragon sets have been great and from the look of the box, this new dragon for Jay is no exception. Continue reading 70602 Jay’s Elemental Dragon
The Ninjago theme has always been a bit hit or miss for me.
