Today we have a press release for the upcoming LEGO Ninjago Character Encyclopedia, published by DK. In addition to the book coming out at the end of the month, there's a chance BZPower will be getting an early copy to give out to a lucky member, so keep your eyes peeled for a contest if that happens. For now, you can read on to see the details of this comprehensive book.View the full article

Why call him Green Ninja ZX? Anyways, I could get it when it comes out or wait for that contest to pop up. I don't know.

Credits go to Strack for the awesome sprite.

 

"Everyone wondered what powered Zane. I don't know if we'll ever know. I like to

think he was a brother. Because he powered me... and he'll still power me as his memory lives on.

A ninja never quits and a ninja will never be forgotten. Wherever you are Zane...

you'll always be one of us..."

Really looking forward to this. I have never bought any of the Dorling Kindersley Character Encyclopedias or Visual Dictionaries before because they've always been for licensed themes, and I don't collect most of those except for the occasional set. But they are very high in quality, as are the exclusive minifigures that they include.The Lloyd minifigure in this set is amazing, and I look forward to adding him to my collection. It seems very silly to me, though, that the cover of the book, the preview pages on the Canadian Dorling Kindersley website, and the press release all call him "Green Ninja ZX". Come on, guys. There's a set of him out that calls him by his real name. His identity's not exactly a secret anymore.It's a shame that this is coming out before the 2013 wave of sets, since it would be nice if it were 100% comprehensive, but really that would cut into its success. This way, some of the hype for the new sets and TV episodes gets funneled into the book's sales.Some pictures I've seen of the cover of this book show the back of the Lloyd minifigure's torso, and it looks like he might have a new emblem. Once this starts showing up I look forward to seeing the minifigure in more detail. Also, the book has already been released in some countries, and it's been revealed that towards the end of the book there is an image of the ninja's enemies from next year's sets (
Spoiler
). That should be more than enough to get people excited!

>Sees this story on the front page>Reacts with the following:"But TNW had this article months ago">Checks TNW>OH WAIT I was too lazy to write that article months ago.Well yay I guess. I'll buy the book because if it says Ninjago on it I feel as if I must buy it (yes I have Ninjago notebooks, clothing, etc galore).

I know this is great news for Ninjago fans. The fact that a minifig comes with it will help it sell more copies.
