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.
This four-armed foe is an upsized (with fries) variant of the original Lord Garmadon figure.
This figure comes with black lower-torso printed with dark-grey ribcage and purple sash at the waist. The top 3/4 size torso is custom-moulded in dark-grey with a ‘grated’ front. Garmadon wears a pearl-grey Kabuto helmet (identical to Samurai X) but with a white bone.
Unlike the first variant, on this figure the purple sash extends down both legs and the helmet is a different mould and colour. The face is identical to his predecessor , with dark-red eyes, grey pupils, and an angry, open-mouth expression with pointed white teeth. Dark-grey frown lines frame the mouth and some rather large, dark-grey eyebrows.
This figure is a cool addition to the LEGO oeuvre. The double torso makes this variant unique and certainly quite imposing. The face print, inherited from the first version, is spot on and gives the figure a scary, menacing appearance. The new, less-cartoony helmet is a good choice.
No back printing on this figure but the double-torso perhaps makes up for this. He looks a bit odd from the back as the upper-torso is a different colour to the base torso. The lower-torso print is fairly simple when compared to some of the other Ninjago figures.
This variant was released in 2012 and appears in Destiny’s Bounty.
