OK I wanted to create something showing the "official" combinations of the various Space Ninja craft so far. For it to be an "official" combination it can only be made up of the 5 ninja fliers, 5 stealth shadows and the 3 Gold fliers, and nothing else, without any duplications.
here is what I've come up with so far.
What on Earth are the Space Ninjas?
I've been asked that question a few times across various websites and the simple answer is... I don't know. I made up the name about a week ago (late November 2011) as a catch all, power ranger like, super robot team. My original plan was for a team of robots that combine to form a bigger robot, but the mechanics at this scale are HARD! So I compromised with this Mega Zord inspired micro mecha concept.
I've since been toying with some story ideas for the Space Ninjas, many of which are blatant Power Ranger inspired fan fictions. But to date this is the gist:
2,000 years ago the combined ninja clans of Earth banished a great and powerful evil into the abyss, from which it was prophesied that it one day it would eventually escape. Fast forward to the future, approximately 500 years from now. To prepare for the return of the great evil, the ninjas infiltrated various facets of human culture, arranging for the construction of a colony/training academy to be built in secret on a newly colonised Asteroid beyond Saturn. There they have devised an entire fleet of craft capable of assuming super robot forms. Piloted by ninjas, these robots are like a scalpel cutting away evil from the galaxy, where as the regular military are more like a bazooka.
But the prophecy is about to be fulfilled and the great evil has chosen the BioBeasts of Glorm as his instruments. When they recapture the abyss, he will rise again! you may notice I call some of the units by different names from my previous posts using these designs, I'm still working on names so anything here may be subject to change again later:
Space Ninja Ultra Stealth Mode (red body plus black limbs plus gold armour)
Stealth Shadow Super Ninja (Black body plus Ninja limbs (green, white, yellow, blue))
Space Ninja Ultra Robot (Red body plus Ninja limbs and gold armour)
Stealth Shadow Super Robot (Black body and limbs)
Stealth Shadow Ultra Robot (Black body and limbs with gold armour)
Space Ninja Super Robot (Red Body with ninja limbs)
Space Ninja Super Stealth Mode (Red body, black limbs)
Stealth Shadow Super Ninja Mode (black body, ninja limbs)
Space Ninja super Stealth Mode (Red body, black limbs)
Stealth Shadow Ultra Ninja Mode (black body, ninja limbs, gold armour)
OK, that's six posts for this bunch. I've set that as my new limit at any one time before I move onto something else. Since I'm starting to get bored with seeing the same limbs over and over, I'm going to concentrate on either an unrelated concept (not done much on my CyberAgents in a few weeks) or create someone for this bunch to fight.
Since it's technically a Power Ranger pastiche, I thought perhaps creating some monsters in the same scale... Will post something when I have something.

Not really sure I know the back ground about Space Ninja but your creation shows lots of feature for a super robot which is combine with several small device such as car, fight...etc. Very good MOC!
thank you. You probably never heard of them because... I made them up.
think of it as a power rangers homage, but with a completely unrelated back story. (which I'm making up as I go along).

All your Power Rangers collection is clever, I've watch she since the begining of yours try on it. these LDD creation deserve real lego pieces !
thanks, like I said on one of the others, I really wish I had the parts to make them for real, but I don't have them. Perhaps some kind soul would have a go for me and let me know what it looks like ;)
I haven't given up on the idea either, I've just spent 5 days doing very little else and I'm in danger of getting bored with it unless I move onto another project. But there will probably be more to follow.
