Introduced in 2011, LEGO Ninjago has been one of the company’s most popular product lines and has come to encompass some rather large models.
LEGO Ninjago began as one of the toymaker’s stabs at an original, non-licensed toy line. For more than a decade, sales have been stellar for the ninjitsu-themed building sets.
LEGO even managed to parlay that success into a Ninjago multimedia franchise. In addition to the toys, an animated series that has run for over 200 episodes and a theatrically released feature film (aptly titled The LEGO Ninjago Movie) have also debuted since Ninjago’s launch in the early 2010s.
