I hope all of you are enjoying the summer but it’s a bit tough out here. According to the Meteorology Bureau, the temperature of Shanghai has been exceeding 37 Celsius for more than 3 weeks in a row while some of these days are even reaching 41! It feels like melting when you are outside, really hope we could have a Zane to wield his ICE Ninja power to cool us down a little bit.
(This is how I look like these days, lol)
Talking about Ninjago, I was super excited to watch the new trailer of the LEGO Ninjago Movie brought by Warner Bros. at SDCC, again and again. And finally, we will encounter our greatest villain of the 16 realms, the unstoppable beast – the Meowthra! It was so funny and great to see that the real-life element is not missing in this movie as well. And you know in other languages, sometimes it’s hard to pick up jokes like L-loyd vs. Lloyd. But the Taiwanese transcript made it even funnier by translating the name into “Rolex” which sounds actually close enough. I really look forward to watching the full movie in the cinema, hopefully we will be lucky enough to make a pre-screen in Billund next month! Finger Crossed!
Also at this year’s SDCC, a sneak peak of the opening sequence of the LEGO Ninjago Season 8 also came at a surprise. The fighting scene looks great and I love the vehicle that Master Lloyd is driving. Can’t wait to know more about the bikers and Sons of Garmadon.
Back to real life, AFOLs in Hong Kong is collaborating with local LEGO sales office to run their 11th annual MOC contest at ACGHK 2017 this weekend. This theme of this year is "Build Hong Kong Amazing", thus you will see lots of impressive MOCs features the most beautiful part of this city. Don’t miss it if you happen to be in town!
One more piece of exciting news to share with the community, LCE is looking for a LCP in China. If you are interested, move to China (no, I’m kidding). Check out the LCP page on LEGO.com (URL) and learn how to submit your application.
Have fun, keep cool in summer and see you on LAN!
