LEGO NINJAGO magazine – Jay minifigure spotlight

This month’s LEGO NINJAGO magazine includes an exclusive Jay minifigure – technically speaking, anyway.

While Digi Jay appears in no fewer than five of this year’s NINJAGO sets, that minifigure includes shoulder armour. The version packed into Issue 69 of Immediate Media’s LEGO NINJAGO magazine doesn’t.

That makes him technically exclusive, then, even if it is just because he’s missing a piece. And, of course, if you’ve already got 71708 Gamer’s Market, 71709 Jay and Lloyd’s Velocity Racers, 71711 Jay’s Cyber Dragon, 71712 Empire Temple of Madness or 71715 Jay Avatar – Arcade Pod, it’s easy enough to recreate for yourself.

Even without his shoulder armour, though, this is still a pretty cool minifigure. And his ‘Cyber Nunchuk’ is arguably even better, combining a videogame controller hilt with a trans-neon green chain, 1×1 plate and cheese slopes.

He’s also got a double-sided head, including what the magazine refers to as his ‘gaming mode’. That’s a pretty good deal for £3.99 in our books.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @chriswharfe.

    Honestly wish this had been Digi Nya. We got plenty of Jays, Kais, and Lloyds, all of whom came in $10 sets. A shoulder armor-less Digi Cole also came in a $10 set. But if you wanted Digi Nya without going through the aftermarket, you had to spend $50. She comes in a good set, but it’s still disappointing.
