As AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR prepares to enter its eighth season tonight on NBC, it seems a lot of people have forgotten where it made its debut… back on the late G4TV in 2009. Since then, the show has become a phenomenon, emulated by kids, adored by grownups, and today I do believe it’s achieved icon status. After all, when your property is officially recognized in LEGO form, that’s a real testament to how big it’s become, and today brings the first of four installments of #LEGOANW. Watch below as some favorite characters from the LEGO NINJAGO play theme face off against some familiar faces from AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR as they take on one of this season’s never-before-seen obstacles – THE BIG WHEEL – all presented in LEGO brick form!
“A never-before-seen obstacle awaits Jay and other American Ninja Warrior favorites as they take on the notorious obstacle course. Will Master Wu’s teachings be enough to overcome The Big Wheel? Join Matt and Akbar as Jay, Wolfpack member Meagan Martin, Kevin Bull and the “Cowboy Ninja” Lance Pekus are put to the ultimate test of strength and agility in this AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR short.”
