LEGO Ninjago Minifigures - Chopov

Chopov is exclusive to Ninjago sets Skull Motorbike (2259), Garmadon's Dark Fortress (2505), and the Chopov Spinner Set (2114). The minifigure shown here is from 'Skull Motorbike'.

Minifigure Parts and Accessories
Chopov is composed of seven to eight parts depending upon the set you buy - head, torso, armor, two arms, and two legs. Motorbike comes with the helmet.

The helmet is a black version of part bb406. This is a new color for this part ,which has only appeared on the Toy Story Army Men previously.

The head is white with a new skull print and red eyes. The head does not feature dual-sided print.

The torso is new featuring angled ribs and connections for the arms and legs. There's also a spine that juts out in back that allows standard LEGO body wear to fit the figure. This was not a feature on previous skeleton torsos. On the hips, which are attached to the torso, there is a gray printed loin cloth.

The arms are a new part. They have clips on either end to attach to the torso and to allow the figure to hold a weapon securely. The clips are at a 90 degree twist to one another. This type of arm design has not been featured on skeleton figures previously.

The legs are also a new part. Although they clip onto the torso in a similar fashion as past skeleton figs, there are 'boots' at the bottom resembling a standard minifigure 'foot'. This was likely done to allow the figure to fit into the Ninjago spinner.

The armor that comes with the spinner set is a new part in black. There's a metal print on the front which resembles armor plating with a red skull symbol at the bottom. There are also gray spikes along the top of the armor near the arms.

Army Building Potential
The ABP for this figure is moderate to high. Armies of skeleton warriors could easily antagonize masters of spinjitsu as well as your Castle knights.

The Big Draw
Lots of new parts with additional play features over previous skeleton figures. The torsos accommodate standard LEGO body gear, which opens the door for lots of custom options. The pot helmet in black should also be a big draw as well.
