That means digging through our archive of previous NINJAGO sets to compare them to this latest line-up of Legacy releases. 71738 Zane’s Titan Mech Battle, for example, takes one half of 2015’s 70737 Titan Mech Battle and gives it what looks to be a serious upgrade.
There’s at least one NINJAGO Legacy set in this wave that doesn’t actually have a physical predecessor, though. 71742 Overlord Dragon takes its inspiration from the second season of the NINJAGO TV show, with a design that’s never appeared in bricks before.
The embargo on this wave of NINJAGO Legacy models lifts on December 15, so make sure to check back then for a first look at what the action-adventure theme is bringing to shelves in January.

All these sets are due to launch on January 1. LEGO designer Niek van Slagmaat has already shared a sneak peek at 71738 Zane’s Titan Mech Battle, tweeting out concept artwork and images of prototype models.
