New LEGO NINJAGO: The Island sets revealed for 2021

LEGO NINJAGO will evoke the classic Pirates subtheme of Islanders in 2021, with four colourful new sets revealed in a retail catalogue.

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.

According to the New Zealand consumer catalogue, from which the NINJAGO images were taken, the new sets will debut in March. Here’s the list in full:

71745 Lloyd’s Jungle Chopper Bike
71746 Jungle Dragon
71747 The Keepers’ Village
71748 Catamaran Sea Battle

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.

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 @brfa_chris.
