‘The LEGO Ninjago Movie’ CMF Figures and Sets: Breaking Them Down

Hot on the heels of LEGO’s Ninjago City reveal comes all 20 The LEGO Ninjago Movie CMF figures, otherwise known as Series 18.

The reveal was spread out over two days and includes all the core characters from the upcoming film. It also includes plenty of unique accessories and links to both The LEGO Batman Movie and The LEGO Movie.

Additionally, The LEGO Group also sent out a press release that verifies 15 The LEGO Ninjago Movie sets are coming this year. Per Yahoo!’s article yesterday that noted 18 sets are in development, an additional three sets could be coming in a second wave sometime in 2018.

First we’ll go through each of the 20 CMF figures, followed by the press release breakdown of all the sets with pricing, release dates and store availability.

Pajamas Garmadon

Or is it Pajamadon? The Volcano printing, likely a movie plot point, is awesome on this figure. It’s not to be outdone by the new shark soup-inspired bowl and spoon.

Master Wu

This Master Wu appears to have an exclusive head print. Otherwise his biggest selling point is the box of Corn Flakes with his animated short nemesis, the Chicken, on the label.

Spinjitzu Training Nya

Nya’s lone CMF inclusion puts her in training Gi outfit complete with Wu-Cru emblems on the front and back. This same outfit is worn by the other ninja and will be released in sets and by other means, such as activity books and polybags.

Lloyd Garmadon

This Lloyd figure should be highly sought after due to his hood with molded hair bang, silver spoon, and matching bowl to Pajamas Garmadon with an exclusive dragon print.

Sushi Chef

A perfect complimentary figure to the rooftop sushi restaurant in Ninjago City. He sports a great headband and dual-molded legs that customizers will be after in bunches.


This Misako figure — or is it Koko? — is much, much younger than her TV show counterpart. Her exclusive hair piece will be a big seller even if a nearly identical figure is present in the Ninjago City set.

Jay Walker

This Jay figure in civilian high school clothes is going to be a big hit. First, it’s Jay, the comedy relief and a fan favorite. Second, he’s sporting a new scarf piece. And third, the selfie stick is too darn cute.

Shark Army Great White

This Garmadon goon is a far cry from all the other fishy villains. He’s been toasted black with lava damage in yet another hint that a volcano plays into the film’s plot. His battery could also use a recharge.

Shark Army General #1

Yes, it’s a little odd that this villain has a pink slurpy cup. She’s got a great design and militaristic torso that should make her one of the more popular figure in the series.

Gong and Guitar Rocker

This is arguably the most bizarre figure in the entire series. Is this Steve Aoki in mini-figure form? Cole’s jam session buddy? Hopefully the movie will offer much-needed context.

N-POP Girl

The LEGO Movie’s Unikitty gets some love in the LEGO version of the K-POP phenomenon. This figure will have broad appear far beyond the Ninjago fandom.

Lloyd Garmadon #2

The second Lloyd figure is pretty weak but does offer a chance for kids to nab a ninja suit Lloyd without buying a set. He comes with blueprints for his Mech Dragon and a separate hair piece.

Garmadon #2

The most classic look for Garmadon in a CMF pack compliments Lloyd. What’s interesting here is his weapon that is reminiscent of the Mega weapon from the TV series, only it’s in Batman black rather than shiny gold.

Flashback Garmadon

The third Garmadon figure confirms at least one flashback during the movie. Apparently Garmadon has always had a fascination with volcanoes for whatever reason, and he had a day job as well.

Kendo Kai

The lone Kai CMF figure is also the lone Kendo training outfit in the set. If you recall, the ninja were originally released with Kendo training gear during the early days of Ninjago LEGO sets.

GPL Tech

The GPL Tech comes straight from Gotham Institute of Technology. An obvious nod to The LEGO Batman Movie, she’s sure to be popular for the parted labcoat with Batman t-shirt underneath.

Shark Army Angler

Army builder figures are always popular and this guy has an exclusive color for his angler fish head piece.


Laid back Cole in his civilian high school outfit is sporting an AC/DC t-shirt written in Ninjago script as well as an 80’s boom box. He’s one of the more unique figures in the series.


Not to be outdone is everyone’s favorite nindroid, Zane. This is the first time Zane has appeared in civilian clothes and they are remarkably similar to the outfit he wore during the Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu Season 3 premiere episode.

Shark Army Octopus

Last but not least is a second army builder figure for Garmadon to command. He’s even got a stud-shooter, the first time that one of these weapons has appeared in a CMF series.
