Back in December I reported on a new Battle Pod promotion that was being launched in conjunction with the then new LEGO Batman Movie. The idea was simple and based around a promotional minifigure package in a cool little pod. The pod opens up to a reveal the minifigure one side and a little weapon station (not just weapons – more later) on the other side. I was really impressed and thought at the time that LEGO had hit onto something and Batman would be the start of many pod promotions moving forward. Well it turns out I was correct and it looks like the pod promotion is jumping across multiple LEGO themes!
Thanks to bouwsteentjes.info for sharing the news over in Europe. LEGO has so far confirmed that the the pods will be moving across to LEGO Ninjago Movie, Nexo Knights and Friends (instead of weapons Emma will be going into battle with a pair of skis). No news on yet on how we can get our hands on these, but I’m sure there will be multiple promotions globally. As we saw with the Batman version it is worth sitting tight before jumping on ebay and paying the “limited edition” price when it first appears.
I think LEGO has created a new group of collectors! As always would love to know everyone’s thoughts on these new pods, will you be collecting them?
