If you're wondering how a ninja would defeat a tank, you're overthinking things.
Holy crap, quote of the day!

Basically, this is one of those themes that either strikes you as ridiculously awesome, or just ridiculous. I adhere to the former. It's definitely a polarizing theme, which I basically saw from the beginning.
I agree. It seems totally awesome, but at the same time it's so geared towards kids that it seems totally ridiculous when put in perspective.

I thought the skeletons looked good but these are just too cartoony. I wish they made them look less like a videogame guy.

I totally love the lightsaber-hilt like things, but than with knobs on the sides at one end, those'll be usefull at so many things. further those vehecles are ridiculous, wich makes 'em awesome. ir you have a problem with that, just buy it for the peices. $9.99 for that motor is kinda underprised and it comes with 2 minifigs with awesome weapons. just love this theme, always loved ninjas :D

The price for them is ridiculous. I would not get any figs. The nunchuck is great though.

That does look like it'll be a really good piece.

went to the TRU Ninjago Build event thingy. My son "won" a giveaway and got the Krazi Ninja go set.

The base is two pieces, a 2x2 round bumber on the bottom of the spinning platform. The spinning platform is actually nicely weighted and allows for a nice spin for the game. The person doing the demonstrations said any lego minifig would fit into the base. the interior part of the base raises and lowers slightly when turned. Overall better put together that I originally thought by the pictures, but not something I would buy due to price....maybe do spinner sets and all sorts of seperate packs with just a figure and cards for say 5 bucks would be better than a $10 pack with a spinner. just my first impressions with Ninja Go!

i received a ninjago sticker with my lego.com order yesterday.
it is about 8 inches long, and clear.
this is from my phone, so not a great pic, but you get an idea.
