Have you seen the new Lego Ninago 2012 theme? It's the year of the snake. There are new snake enemies and who is the green Ninja?

2012 is the Year of the Snake for Lego Ninjago. Lego Ninjago has a new set of enemies: the snake people! Lord Garmadon's son Lloyd Garmadon is around too.

The Ninja heroes are going to need all the help they can get. But who is the mysterious green ninja? Is is someone we already know, or someone completely new?

On this page we look at the Ninjago snakes story and some of the new Ninjago snakes sets for 2012.

Lego Ninjago 2012 - Year of the Snake

The new Lego Ninjago Snake People range came out in 2012 with new sets being released throughout the year. We love those gorgeous lime green boxes with snake skin print.

There a five different tribes of snake people, each with different characteristics. The snake minifigures are amazing! They'll be appearing in new sets throughout 2012.

We've now got the Summer 2012 wave of Ninjago which include four new sets that tie in with recent happenings in the Ninjago TV series. 

Samurai X gets her amazing Samurai Mech robot. The ninjas get their Ultra Soonic Raider vehicle. There's a new snake vehicle for Lasha. And then there's the new big Epic Battle set where we get The Great Devourer and the 4-Headed Dragon and also the Green Ninja, all in one big set. 

The snakes theme is brilliant! Let's take a look. 

Lego Ninjago - Year of the Snake

The Lego Ninjago range has been a huge hit in our house. My boys love the whole Ninja theme and the backstory that comes with it including the Skeleton Army bad guys. 

Now we're enjoying the new Lego Ninjago sets for 2012. The new theme is Rise of the Snake and the new enemy is the Snake People! 

Let's take a look at the latest sets.
