LEGO Ninjago (2011-2013) is a ninja theme that follows the adventures of four Spinjitzu ninjas, Cole, Kai, Zane and Jay and their foes including the Skeletons, the Serpentine and the evil Lord Garmadon, among others. Check out reviews, sets, and more about the story.
Samurai X aka Nya aka Sister of Fire is the
equally more talented sister of Kai. Her elemental symbol is fire, represented by a golden phoenix on her clothing and amour. At the time of this post, she is the only female Ninjago minifigure released.
This seven-piece figure comes with an appropriately Samurai-ish pearl-grey Kabuto with golden horns, neck and chin guards. The look is made complete with pearl-grey dō and spaulders.
The standard yellow head comes with two facial expressions. One side shows a neutral expression with white pupilled eyes, red lips, black and red eyelashes (or eyeliner…hard to tell!). The alt shows an angry open mouth expression, black lips with raised eyebrows, and white pupilled eyes with black eyelashes.
The torso, legs and hips are printed in a dark-red, silver and gold scheme. The front torso has an hourglass shape with printed breastplates, buckles, belts and a golden phoenix on the top-right plate. The back torso has printed back armour with four straps and a golden phoenix logo.
This is one cool minifigure! Particularly nice is the moulding detail on the helmet and movable chin guard. The printing is fantastic and definitely give her the warrior look. I think this is my new favourite Ninjago figure (previously Kai DX)…and possibly one of my favourite minifigures of those I have collected so far.
I display mine without the dō as it covers up a really nice, detailed design.
Samurai X is available in the awesome Samurai Mech set.
