2012 Lego Ninjago True Potential NRG Cole – Set 9572 Review and Unboxing

Ninjago fans gather ’round – Reagan and Daddy are about to unleash the TRUE POTENTIAL of NRG Cole upon you! If you have a good pair of shades you might want to reach for them now before the power of this Cole minifig is released. Reagan and I are huge fans of these new NRG Ninjago minifigs solely upon their brightly colored faces and ninja uniforms. How about you? What is your favorite thing about the NRG figures? You gotta admit that the glowing eyes are OUTRAGEOUSLY RADICAL. We picked this figure up at ToysRUs.com, along with NRG Jay, Spitta and Fangdam.

NRG Cole – Lego Set 9572 was on our radar as soon as the NRG ninjas were available for purchase. Having harnessed and mastered the ways of the Earth, Cole transforms into a super powerful ninja that has reached his true potential. Upon close inspection you will observe a pulsing fire in his eyes, almost a lava/magma meets crumbling Earth look! Serpents be ware – this ninja ain’t playin’ around.

LEGO DC Universe 4527 The Joker and 4528 Green Lantern Review with Reagan and Cuzin’ Wes

Well, Cuzin’ Wes came in from out of town for a family visit, and so, Reagan, Daddy, Mommy, and Baby Brother loaded up in the car and headed over to grandma’s house. It has been a while since we have seen Wes and his mom, so we were all excited for the visit. After Grandma fixed us an awesome breakfast of eggs, grits, sausage, bacon, biscuits, fruit salad, and orange juice, Wes announced that he had got some new toys while he was in for his visit. In fact, Wes purchased the LEGO DC Universe – Set 4527 The Joker and Set 4528 The Green Lantern from Grandma’s local Barnes and Noble bookstore.

We were so pumped! Reagan and I have been talking about picking up some super hero figures from LEGO, so this was a nice surprise to get an upclose view of the figures! Wes also noted that you can combine the sets 4527 and 4528 to create ULTRA VERSIONS of The Green Lantern and The Joker. We got another blog post with photos on the ULTRA BUILD coming up.

2012 Lego Ninjago NRG Jay – Set 9570 Review and Unboxing

Ninjago fans?  You bet we are! Reagan and Daddy shopped this week at ToysRUs.com and while we were checking out some of our favorite products, we decided to check out the Ninjago section and see if there were some new sets available.

To our great surprise there were 6 new sets that were on our buy list. One of these targetted pick ups was NRG Jay – Lego Ninjago set 9570. Having transformed into lightning energy, NRG Jay is ready to do battle at his fullest potential. The serpentine tribes better be wary of this bad boy ninja!

This new Ninjago minifig costs 12.99 online at Toys R Us, but is also available at Amazon and Ebay.


The 9570 set includes the following components:


(1) NRG Jay figurine with an electrifying blue lightning bolt pattern across his chest and back that gives a glowing effect through the use of an irradescent type paint. It’s about as close to glowing as we are going to get on this Ninjago figurine!


(1) Gold Spear
(1) Standard Spear
(1) Standard Ninjago Sword


NRG Jay’s crown is a serated silver blade with a spinner inspired by his relationship with lightning – it is a deep, translucent blue in color.
