Best Lego Ninjago Sets of 2017 – The Best of the Best

LEGO Ninjago Dragon's Forge 70627 Building Kit

Lego Ninjago shows are all the rave right now. And why wouldn’t it? They are a hundred percent kid-friendly, explores lots of elements kids are very fond of.

This includes bikes, ghosts, dragons, and much more! No wonder Lego Ninjago sets are such a big hit!

With all the Ninjago toys out there, it can get very confusing! Here, I’m going to introduce you to the Lego sets I personally consider to be the best.

How I chose the items here isn’t random at all. It’s based on three different factors: design, durability, and price.

Let’s throw the guesswork out to the curb, and let me help you. Here are my top 10 Lego Ninjago sets from the past to 2017 that your kids will love.

LEGO Ninjago sets Misfortune’s Keep 70605

[easyazon_image align=”none” height=”500″ identifier=”B013JQDYHC” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″] [easyazon_cta align=”center” identifier=”B013JQDYHC” key=”wide-orange” locale=”US” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″]

Ninjago is under threat from the evil Djinn Nada Khan and the whole of Misfortune’s Keep.

Is this the end of Jay, the gang, and the whole of Ninjago?

Unfortunately, it is… Well, that’s unless you come to their rescue. Besides, only you have the right weapon elements to subdue the enemy.

[easyazon_image align=”none” height=”329″ identifier=”B013JQDYHC” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

You can have all the Lego Ninjago sets in the world, but without this one, you can never write their victory.

Re-enact or even rewrite how Jay and Lloyd overpower Misfortune’s Keep. The victories and defeats are now completely up to you.

Can you handle that kind of pressure? You better do because they’re about to attack.

Give Lloyd’s booster jet because we’re going to take this battle to the skies.

Be careful now!

The Misfortune’s Keep may be massive in size, but it can still be pretty sneaky. Aside from the disc shooters and rotating aircraft gun, they’ve got cannons hidden somewhere.

Now that you’ve lowered Jay into battle, your victory is assured. But don’t let enemies escape through the detachable escape boat!

Free Wu from the golden Djinn blade and let Nada Khan taste the wrath of Ninjago.

I need your best game. Now, you now have three missions: conquer the Dragon’s Forge, rescue Kai and Nya’s parents, and claim the Reversal Time blade.

With the Buffmillion mech against you, how on earth are you going to win? Kai and Nya are practically helpless.

For all the helpless and weak, Fusion Dragon comes to the rescue. While you’re distracted by the beautiful yet terrifying dragon, the shooting crossbow strikes you.

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”245″ identifier=”B01L0VXKMM” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

The Dragon’s forge, even with the blacksmith’s hammer function and the hidden Dragon Dagger, isn’t enough to stop you.

You got to admit, though. The forge is pretty amazing.

Who has the upper hand now, huh? The best part, the amazing dragon can strike a victory pose after the battle is over.

Have these amazing pieces, plus weapons and six minifigures with this Lego Ninjago set.

Sure, they’re unusually color-coordinated. But who cares? Everybody needs a little flair in their life.

LEGO Ninjago sets Chain Cycle Ambush 70730

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”500″ identifier=”B00UC3D6HO” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″] [easyazon_cta align=”center” identifier=”B00UC3D6HO” key=”wide-orange” locale=”US” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″]

It’s time for some fast-paced adrenaline rush.

Of course, all Lego Ninjago sets can’t be complete without a little battle on the side.

Help Zane reclaim the Aeroblade from the evil Chain Master Wrayth.

Not only is it wrong to get what’s not yours, it’s totally unfair too that he has that sweet bike, right?

It has a rear catapult because you need to be very quick and covert when you’re out stealing stuff.

But that’s not the best part.

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”450″ identifier=”B01MA341RN” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”450″]

The spiked wheels make the whole thing unique. An offensive weapon, the two stud shooters can hold off their victims for as long as possible.

Don’t fret! Our hero has a glider, donning a transparent ice exhaust element as well as blade and sword details.

How about the Skreemers? Of course, the set wouldn’t be complete without them.

Accessory elements are included because how are they going to fight?

With the weapons and the vehicles in place, get ready to witness an epic battle of redemption and pure awesomeness.

LEGO Ninjago sets 70735 Ronin R.E.X. Ninja Building Kit

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”500″ identifier=”B00WI0G64Y” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”440″] [easyazon_cta align=”center” identifier=”B00WI0G64Y” key=”wide-orange” locale=”US” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″]

2-in-1 stuff is great. You get more with the same amount of money.

Not all Lego Ninjago sets offer that, but this one can!

Prepare to soar for an aerial battle with against the Ghost Ninja Attila and the Scythe Master Ghoultar. For that, you need the Ronin’s 2-in-1 R.E.X.

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”263″ identifier=”B00WI0G64Y” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

Get Ronin at the heart of the machine and open the cockpit to place him at the controls. Now, you’re ready for combat.

Propel Kai to the Scythe Master through the Airijitzu flyer. Be careful, now. Ghoultar is armed and he’s not afraid to use them.

Like Kai, Ronin’s going to be busy for a while. Riding the ghost dragon is the ghoulish Attila. Lunge to him with the R.E.X. and show him the fullest extent of your skills.

Just to remind you, this isn’t a hit and run mission. You still have to obtain the Aeroblade. Only after that can you claim success.

Well, to be fair, owning the 2-in-1 R.E.X. plus everything in the set is a victory in itself. Am I right?

Packed with features, minifigures, and weapons, this is one of the Lego Ninjago sets you can’t afford to miss.

LEGO Ninjago sets 70593 The Green NRG Dragon Building Kit

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”500″ identifier=”B01CU9X3X4″ locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″] [easyazon_cta align=”center” identifier=”B01CU9X3X4″ key=”wide-orange” locale=”US” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″]

When the sky pirates dedicate a lookout tower just for you, you know you are a real threat to their evil ways.

And they’re right. Not only do you have the Green NRG Dragon, you’re also going to use it to stop them. They better watch out. You’re about to wreak havoc.

This dragon is awesome in every way. It looks good with the golden chain-style reins and spike details, but is also a real menace.

It has a posable tail with two stud shooters plus the talons, so they better watch out!

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”377″ identifier=”B01CU9X3X4″ locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

Get Lloyd in the dragon’s saddle, and fly into the sky. But this isn’t just an adventure.

You’re about to have the Djinn Blade in your hands. How so, you ask? With the help of Ghost Cole, you can win against those nasty sky pirates.

Avoid shots from their catapults, and retaliate through the stud shooters. Snap the dragon’s mouth, and whip them with the talons.

No mercy for the pirates.

Do all these, and you will triumph over Battled Dubloon.

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”444″ identifier=”B01CU9X3X4″ locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

LEGO Ninjago sets Ninja Bike Chase 70600

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”500″ identifier=”B01AW1R0QS” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

[easyazon_cta align=”none” identifier=”B01AW1R0QS” key=”wide-orange” locale=”US” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″]

Land versus air. What would win?

Kai, Nya, and the sky pirates can sure give you the answer.

But first, let’s talk about those two amazingly-designed bikes. Because it ain’t a bike chase without bikes, right?

Kai’s bike has these huge-ass wheels and two hidden cannons. Why? Because sometimes you want the bike to look super yet non-threatening.

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”211″ identifier=”B01AW1R0QS” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

You don’t want to freak out people, do you?

Then, there’s Nya’s bike. Having adjustable elemental water cannon, it can target the sky pirates no matter where they are.

Lego Ninjago sets are great. But how many has this variety while still sticking to the theme?

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”459″ identifier=”B01AW1R0QS” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

As dramatic and lovely as those details are, let’s not get distracted. We’re here to free Cole from Sqiffy’s Djinn Blade.

Now, taking the flyer down is your main mission. The second is to pose those bikes after you Kai and Nya reunite with Cole.

I personally think there’s nothing wrong about showing them off. If you have it, flaunt it.

Get yourself high-speed action in style with this one-of-a-kind Ninjago-inspired Lego set. Nothing’s as thrilling and as exciting.

LEGO Ninjago sets 70595 Ultra Stealth Raider Building Kit

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”500″ identifier=”B01CU9X5ZA” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

[easyazon_cta align=”none” identifier=”B01CU9X5ZA” key=”wide-orange” locale=”US” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″]

You know what’s better than the 2-in-1 R.E.X.? The 4-in-1 Ultra Stealth Raider.

If you’re thinking how the hell something that size can be stealthy, I can’t blame you.

But think about it.

Being stealthy is about the element of surprise. What I can promise you, it can be achieved by suddenly splitting a gigantic vehicle into four independently-functioning ones.

One second, it’s basically a head-on battle. The next, it’s an ambush! The Ultra Stealth Raider splits into a helijet, a big bike, and two tread bikes.

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”469″ identifier=”B01CU9X5ZA” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

But remember, they aren’t completely powerless. With them is the Chenosaurus, having a snapping jaw and spring-loaded shooters.

After the ninja heroes’ big surprise, claim the precious Aeroblade. The Aeroblade is your victory.

Feel like you have just outmuscled your incredibly powerful enemies. Lego Ninjago sets as impressive as this one is one in a million.

Loaded with weapons, amazing features, and numerous minifigures, this one should be on top of your wishlist.

LEGO Ninjago sets 70737 Titan Mech Battle Building Kit

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”500″ identifier=”B00WHYW19K” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″] [easyazon_cta align=”center” identifier=”B00WHYW19K” key=”wide-orange” locale=”US” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″]

Nothing, I mean nothing, can prepare you for the awesomeness that’s about to come. Get ready for the ultimate Mech Battle in Ninjago history.

Out from Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu TV show, Zane’s Titan Mech against Blade Master Bansha’s Mech-Einstein.

Featuring a spring-loaded hook shooter and stud shooters, the Titan Mech is a force to reckon with. But the Mech-Einstein isn’t falling much behind.

With four functioning arms, rotating torso, and a stud shooter, Mech-Einstein is a worthy rival for the Aeroblade.

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”307″ identifier=”B00WHYW19K” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

Take the battle to the skies with the rocket-booster backpack. Don’t worry! Jay and Nya are going to fire the spring-loaded hook shooter to get the enemies to their knees.

Of course, the story couldn’t be complete with just some set highlights and five minifigures. A battle of this epic proportion deserves more.

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”499″ identifier=”B00WHYW19K” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

By grabbing this off the shelves, you also get many elements including Nya’s Katanas, Zane’s Deepstone armor, the Aeroblade, and much more.

Don’t be distracted, though! While the Mech-Einstein distracts you with its moves, Ghoultar will try to steal the Aeroblade.

Keep your eyes on everything all the time. Else, all your efforts on fighting them would be in vain.

LEGO Ninjago sets 70734 Master WU Dragon Ninja Building

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”500″ identifier=”B00WI02HNS” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″] [easyazon_cta align=”center” identifier=”B00WI02HNS” key=”wide-orange” locale=”US” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″]

Simply because dragons are amazing, here’s another one on my list of best Lego Ninjago sets.

Someone’s trying to steal the Aeroblade again and the gang needs your help.

But with Master Wu’s dragon, would you really need that much help? I’m thinking, not.

It’s majestic and powerful, having golden elements and opening jaws. That’d bring a fright to Ghost Warrior Pitch and Ghost Ninja Hackler.

Still, beware of Skreemer’s ghost poison. It can turn anyone into ghosts.

No matter how you decide to end the story, each is still a ghoulish way to go. Reinvent or re-enact your favorite scenes from the show, and be amazed.

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”234″ identifier=”B00WI02HNS” locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

Master Wu’s tea farm features the Aeroblade, two lantern decorations, a computer element, and a whole lot more.

Meanwhile, weapon elements include Hackler’s ghost axe blade and ghost katana, Sensei Wu’s Deepstone staff, and Pitch’s knife to name a few.

Completing the set are the various accessory elements like Hackler’s shield. With that much details inside the box, how can re-enactment ever be hard?

LEGO Ninjago sets Rattlecopter 9443

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”500″ identifier=”B005QUQ9C2″ locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”497″] [easyazon_cta align=”center” identifier=”B005QUQ9C2″ key=”wide-orange” locale=”US” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″]

This time, the supposed heroes are now playing the kinda culprits. A good way to mix it up, don’t you think?

As Lloyd is getting away with the golden Constrictai staff, he gets trapped by Fang-Suei. The Rattlecopter’s mini snake bombs seem inevitable.

Plus Fang-Suei’s bite can turn people to snakes. That would hurt AND suck.

How on earth is Lloyd going to get himself out of this situation? Is this the end of Lloyd?

Is he about to meet his Lego maker?

[easyazon_image align=”center” height=”418″ identifier=”B005QUQ9C2″ locale=”US” src=”” tag=”chadgodoy24-20″ width=”500″]

Well, not today. Wearing the fire-powered jetpack, Kai swoops to the rescue. Damage is being done through the four flick missiles.

Now, the playing field is leveled. Get yourself some anti-venom and protect yourself against the bites.

With the pounding of missiles to the Rattlecopter, Lloyd is now safe and the enemies are defeated.

Hooray to Kai for the heroic act! Hooray to Lloyd for obtaining the Constrictai stuff!
