What I got for Christmas, Part 27: Ninjago figures!
Kai … the Red Ninja. These new BLACK uniforms are a little more “ninja” like. Otherwise, why would a sneaky ninja wear a bright red outfit? These are the black and color “Possession” uniforms from the last Ninjago cartoon story-arc and LEGO play sets. Don’t fall for cheap Chinese knock-offs.
Cheap Chinese knock-offs might be OK for handbags, but don’t try pawning fake LEGO-figures off on Master Wu! Oh, wait … isn’t the Ninjago leader Chinese?
Now “Ninjas” are Japanese, but their master — Sensei Wu is Chinese?… or maybe even Vietnamese? … Shoot, he might even be Thai, I’m not really sure. Does he practice Confucianism or Zen Buddhism? Is he both Chinese/Japanese … is there really any difference? I am not enough of an expert on flute music to be able to tell the difference.
Ya see … it is not so easy, is it? Now just enjoy playing with your LEGOs.
It is fun to document your play battles on film. Now if only I had the patience to create a “stop animation” video.
Sometimes I buy the whole playset just to get the one figure.
