We’re coming up to NINJAGO’s 11th consecutive year on shelves, and the big bang theme is taking a pretty radical departure to mark the occasion. The four new sets are apparently anchored around the accompanying TV series’ ‘The Island’ scenes, and they’re more than a little reminiscent of the 1994 wave of Islanders sets.
Just check out the images below, which give a flavour of the colourful island vibes we can look forward to in this new wave:
Now compare them to a couple of the sets from that much-revered Pirates subtheme. Even if they’re not exactly the same, there’s a clear thematic connection that should satisfy fans hoping for a comeback of those classic (but potentially too culturally-insensitive) characters like King Kahuka.

At least six more LEGO NINJAGO sets will debut in January, with a mix of new and NINJAGO: Legacy models. A new expansion to 70620 NINJAGO City and 70657 NINJAGO City Docks, 71741 The Gardens of NINJAGO City, is also rumoured to be on the way in early 2021.
