Like many of BZPower's readers and members, seven year-old Luka Apps is a huge Ninjago fan. Against his dad's advice, he brought his favorite minifigures to the store with him, where one was inevitably lost. In a last-ditch effort, he wrote to LEGO describing his plight, upon which the helpful (and creative) rep secured permission from Sensei Wu to send Luka a (unique) replacement figure. There's one fan LEGO will be holding on to for a while. Click here for the whole heartwarming story.http://www.bzpower.com/story.php?ID=5917]View the full article[/url]

Reading this story made me smile. Just goes to show how much Lego cares for its fans (and how creative their staff can be).

I've heard of them doing stuff like this before. I must say, I prefer them over hasbro for stuff like this.

Aww... how cute. I like how Lego cares so much about it's fans. It's just... really awesome and kind. Also, the letter written by Richard is pretty neat.

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..."

I've seen this before. Darn, should've reported it as news. :P I really love this story- it just shows how awesome Lego is and how they're not like a crazy company who doesn't care about their customers or anything.

I'm surprised they did this- after all, they can hardly afford to send everyone who loses a part a new Lego set.  But I am glad they did it this time.  I'm not sure what makes the minifig so special?  Is there a picture of it?

I assume it's one of those minifigures which have three different faces on one head.

This story is awesome, I also have this set, and had I lost my Jay ZX figure I probably would've just had to cut my loses and maybe buy a cheaper set that came with the firgure. However, Lego needs to keep their focus on the younger children, and this shows how they are. Keep it up Lego!

I interpreted "combines three into one" to mean that it took the head from one version of the minifig, the body from another and perhaps the gear/accessories of a third.

Um... no minifig has THREE faces on one head. I think it just referred to the extra weapons packed with him. Perhaps Jay ZX's weapon along with the Nunchuks of Lightning from Jay DX and the spear from NRG Jay? It would have helped if the person posting this had shared a picture.
