I’ve not previously been invested in Ninjago as a theme. Since emerging from my Dark Ages though, I have hopped from City to Lord of the Rings, with a stop off a long the way via Harry Potter and Atlantis, in recent times settling for the relative psychedelia of Friends and Elves (This is not an endorsement of minidoll design, more just a quest for more colour), as well as participating in my other joy: Super Heroes. My MOCs over the last few years are as likely to be Miniland Scale, Micro Scale or even a combination of the two.
So: as you can see, not a strong thematic structure to my builds or collection as there may be for other builders. It is, I admit, a bit of a hodge podge. So, when someone said to me this year, “Look at that: Ninja Steampunk Pirate Airship,” how could I refuse? It was an offer too good to refuse.. Pirates, Ninja, Airship, and also Kai’s little Ninja Glider looked extremely swooshable too. Wait a minute. What’s the deal with Kai (I’ve not followed the show at all)? So thats Cyborg Ninja Steampunk Pirate Airship. Mashup complete.
Or is it?
