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.
Lloyd Garmadon, aka the Green Ninja, is the son and arch-enemy of Lord Garmadon and wields all four elemental powers.
This ZX (Zen Extreme) variant is similar to the other ZX figures with a few minor differences, including pearl-dark-grey pauldrons and scabbard rather than silver or gold, a finely patterned silver crest rather than plain and a sash that extends around the back of the figure.
Other interesting details on this figure include the black-crossed silver diamonds printed on the torso and legs, the silver belt buckle and curled, golden snake emblem on the back.
The design of this figure matches pretty well with the other ZX figures and rivals Kai ZX in its level of detail. The layered robe is nice, as is the sash tie and belt buckle. My only gripes are that the sash is not printed on the waist line which looks a little odd and the dark-grey pauldrons don’t match the silver crest. Also, probably due to the printing process, the skin on the torso is a little green…but perhaps Lloyd was poorly that day.
Lloyd ZX (DK Exclusive)
On this figure the green robe is replaced with a black, green and gold Kimono, along with dark green arms, gold pauldrons and a gold crest. Interesting elements of the design are the gold and green tabs down the sides of the kimono, the little japanese symbols in the top left and right torso and a regal golden snake emblem in a green and gold circle on the back.
This Kimono’d Lloyd ZX has a more formal warrior look which is welcome, and the gold detailing is pretty spot on.
This variant comes with the LEGO Ninjago Character Encyclopedia, published by Dorling Kindersley.
