The Lego Ninjago Character Encyclopedia is the latest visual guide to join other Lego titles by Dorling Kindersley like the Star Wars Visual Dictionary, the Harry Potter Building the Magical World and the upcoming Lego Batman Visual Dictionary.

Understandably, this particular guide covers Lego’s own theme, created by The Lego Group in-house, Lego Ninjago, a theme which centres around four Ninja who battle the forces of evil for the control of the world of Ninjago.

Lego Ninjago

Lego Ninjago sets were first released in early 2011 and have since become one of Lego’s most successful themes ever.

A large part of the success can be attributed to the extensive back-story created by Lego which has been developed through books, comics and a cartoon shown on The Cartoon Network (and now on DVD)

Originally, four Ninja; Cole (Black Ninja – Earth Element), Jay (Blue Ninja – Lightning Element), Kai (Red Ninja – Fire Element) and Zane (White Ninja – Ice Element) were brought together to battle Lord Garmadon, the evil brother of their master  Sensei Wu.

After “defeating” Garmadon, the four ninja were confronted by a bigger threat – in the form of mutant snake tribes who want to unleash a creature known as The Great Devourer to destroy the world.

Their battle with the snakes came to a dramatic conclusion at the end of Season Two and the Ninjago story continues this year with the release of the third season of the cartoon.

Adults and kids have been entranced by the theme’s story, humor and the sets themselves which have evolved from Japanese inspired Dojos, through flying Dragons and on to Mecha Robots and sophisticated vehicles.

Lego Ninjago Character Encyclopedia

The Lego Ninjago Visual Guide covers all the figures, vehicles, locations and more throughout it’s 176 pages, and is an essential read for fans of the sets. Like most other books in the DK Visual Guide series, there is no doubt this title will be read and re-read for years to come.

As an extra bonus the book comes pre-packaged with an exclusive Green Ninja ZX figure, one of the most talked about characters in the series so far.

The Ninjago Character Encyclopedia will be released on the 1st of November 2012 and retails for UK £12.74 or US $19.99.

Who Are The Lego Ninjago Characters?

Lego Ninjago MinifiguresWho are the Lego Ninjago characters? Both the good and bad guys…and even those in between?

I must admit to not following the Lego cartoon series, Ninjago Rise of the Snakes as much as I should have.

Hence I can’t tell you the difference between the various snake tribes and have absolutely no hope in even naming one of the leaders of these tribes – Not so good for someone who writes a Lego blog!

But then I stumbled on this article which both named the characters and also let me know in which sets they could be found – Thus my Lego-cred was duly restored!

The Article was published in the Jan-May 2012 issue of the Lego Club Magazine:

I hope you find the information useful. I know more than one family who have been asked by their young-Ninja warriors for the Fangtom minifigure but have no idea where to find him.
