Hoth Bricks has done it again, finding images of the first wave of 2017 Ninjago sets. The wave features vehicles for their latest enemies, the Vermillion, including a tank in 70624 Vermillion Invader and a mech in 70626 Dawn of Iron Doom. The ninja also get new vehicles including a bike for Jay in 70622 Desert Lightning and a baby Destiny's Bounty called Destiny's
Child Shadow. There's also a Samurai dressed in dark blue who's fighting with Nya in 70625 Samurai VXL- the names of the minifigures on the tops of the boxes are too small to make out though. Some clues may point toward the Samurai being Ronin- the name of the vehicle (Samurai VXL) has some similarities to the naming style of Ronin's vehicles (Ronin R.E.X. and Salvage M.E.C.) as well as "Ronin" meaning a Samurai without a master, but it could be anyone. Perhaps the highlight of the wave however is the largest set, 70627 Dragon's Forge, complete with two-headed dragon, blacksmith's shop, a snake-like Vermillion mech and Kai and Nya's parents. Anyway, check out the images below and let us know what you think!
