"My first Ninjago set!
Getting to reinterpret such a fan favorite as as well as a set designed by a designer I look up to (Adrian Florea https://brickset.com/sets/list-9388) was a great pleasure.
It's no secret that I love mechs and Cole and Jay are my favorite ninjas, so this was perfect. I tried to keep the attitude of the original. I wanted to take some of the most defining shapes of the original and blow them up to create a kind of caricature.
For the raider, I focused on the triangular plating on top that converges in one point. By using the tail rudder, I found a neat and new way to cover the back of the tracks a little bit.
For the mech, I wanted to really accentuate the big feet/lower legs and the shoulders. Because he needed to be folded up on the back of the raider, he needed knees, which I didn't mind."
- This set is a Legacy remake of 70723 Thunder Raider from 2013.
- The cockpit section of the Lightning off-roader is placed higher up and is less movable.
- The Lightning Offroader and Earth Mech originally appeared in "The Surge."
- This Legacy remake of the Lightning Offroader is used by Hyper-Sonic in Prime Empire.
- Jay's hairpiece is not completely accurate to his show design, as the piece is the same as his movie counterpart's but in the show its color was changed to be lighter like his original show design by the time this set was released.
- The green hot dog is meant to be a reference to Cole being a ghost from Possession to "Day of the Departed".
- The Legacy (sleeveless) Jay and Cole minifigures included in this set can be considered exclusive, as this is the only set to include the minifigures with the "Manter" torso print error.
