Gold Rush is the title for the next instalment of NINJAGO Reimagined, which has now been released on the LEGO Group’s YouTube channel. The series of shorts imagines NINJAGO with a twist, whether it be in the tone, the animation, or even the story.
You can watch the video below but be aware that it is unconnected to Golden Legend, which has already released.
This episode sees Kai and Nya being chased through the city while riding 71737 X-1 Ninja Charger. A gang of mechanical menaces pursue them while they try to place an idol at the top of Borg Tower, to hopefully banish their foes.
The animation is the main change for this short, with a smoother 3D style used in place of that seen in the show. It also attempts to explain the team’s new Golden Legacy minifigures, with both Kai and Nya’s seen after reuniting both parts of the idol. Whilst Kai is available in 71736 Boulder Blaster, Nya’s minifigure is coming this June in a NINJAGO Legacy set.
