Hi, guys. Since we read today about the descriptions about March of the Oni stuff, it sounds like that the franchise will be going to end this year. It sure sounds like it. However, I need to know what are the other nine Realms and how Zane got his Ice powers first before anything else. As much as Bionicle 2001-2010, Ninjago’s constraction counterpart, ended in nine years, the same would go to Ninjago this year. Has anyone noticed any future sets this year as well? If Ninjago is truly ending, then we would say goodbye to it. It’s been fun for these nine years.:(

What do you think, guys?

I agree with you, Lenny7092. Ninjago is going to end soon. I can feel it. We must enjoy it while we still are able to. The first story-based themes I enjoyed were Legends of Chima and Bionicle, and when they ended, Ninjago gave me something to turn to. I will miss it dearly.  :(

Yeah, and I felt that Ninjago is the next Bionicle. Legends of Chima, Nexo Knights, and Bionicle 2015-2016 seemed to try to live up Ninjago’s standards, but they are cut short because Lego didn’t let them continue on for some reason (I think Lego is just focusing on other successful stuff, but that broke our hearts a lot). Thus, those themes’ efforts were never enough because Lego didn’t care for them longer. Ninjago is also the only original Lego franchise that I follow the most since Bionicle ended (Hero Factory didn’t do a good job much, and Nexo Knights is like a mix of Legends of Chima, Ninjago, and Hero Factory while that theme didn’t do well much, either).:(

I know it's been said before, but LEGO has made it pretty clear that they prefer to plan three year long runs for their various story based themes from recent years, which includes Legends of Chima, Nexo Knights, and Bionicle Gen 2. (And all of these seemed to underperform to the point where the third wave was either fairly minor or canceled all together.) Even the original run of Ninjago was merely a three year plan, which is why the third year featured the "Final Battle" that defeated Garmadon (possessed by the Overlord) once and for all. Ninjago was unique because enough fans and parents wrote in about how they didn't want the theme to end, and Lego brought it back.

I guess having an entire wave of sets rehashing old designs isn't exactly promising, but there are new head wrap molds and the spinner tornados that I don't think they'd introduce to the end of a dying theme. And there were reports from Nuremberg Toy Fair about summer Ninjago sets, so this isn't the final wave. While Ninjago doesn't seem to be Lego's bestseller, it still seems to do well enough that it's become an evergreen theme. (Even if the Lego Ninjago Movie was kind of a dud to older audiences.) Anyway, I wouldn't write off the theme until there's some more substantial news about its cancelation.

One of the big reasons LEGO has for cutting their themes short (even sooner than might sometimes seem necessary) is to free up resources for newer stuff. A lot of business in the toy industry is driven by a sense of novelty, and while LEGO has expanded their production capacity over the years, they still usually don't have too much wiggle room in terms of how many sets they can produce in any given year.

 

Also, retiring a theme before its reputation as a strong seller wears too thin makes it easier for LEGO to promote NEW themes to retailers and media partners as a spiritual successor to older ones and have that increase rather than decrease those partners' confidence in the new brand.

 

But overall, I don't get any sense that Ninjago is on the verge of concluding altogether. There are several plans in store for Ninjago as 2019 goes on:

  • We've been promised around 6 hours of animated content in 2019. Of that content, the four episodes of Season 10 will make up only about hour and a half, and the Legacy shorts make up slightly more than 20 minutes. That leaves around 4 hours of content unaccounted for — enough length even for a typical a ten-episode season in the second half of the year.
  • At least one new character, Antonia, has been announced who will be making her on-screen appearane in the second half of the year.
  • LEGOLAND Japan is preparing to open their own Ninjago World area comparable to the ones that have already opened at the LEGOLAND parks in Billund, Windsor, California, Florida, Germany, Malaysia.
  • 12 new sets have been revealed at Nuremberg Toy Fair, with German prices ranging from €8.99 to €129.99, although many details about their names and contents are still unconfirmed. From what has been revealed, they do NOT appear to be connected to Season 10. And in any case, that's far from the kind of modest final wave we've seen for themes such as Bionicle, Legends of Chima, or Nexo Knights.
  • If Ninjago WERE going to end this year… why not end it with Season 10 and the show's 100th episode instead of a whole additional story arc beyond that?

Ninjago's probably not going anywhere in the immediate future, since it's Lego's cash cow; but it can't have too much more time if Bionicle is any indication of how things go. Only time will tell how much longer it lasts.

I take back what I said earlier, and estimate that Ninjago will probably end in 2020. It began in 2011, and Bionicle lasted 2001-2010.

Remember, Bionicle started in summer of 2001 (in the US), with its first comic book along the way. It ended in winter 2010 before Hero Factory started in summer 2010. I recall Ninjago started in winter 2011, with the pilot TV episodes, so Ninjago would probably in either at the end of summer 2019 or winter 2020. I did the math, as Bionicle was running for nine full years, so I believe Ninjago would do the same. I can sense it.
