The Ninjago Turbo Spin
Discover the newest Spinijtzu technique: Turbo Spinning! Explore the innovative spinning tools: The "Ninjago Pull Stick" & the "Ninjago Power Gun". They can boost a spinner up to 10.000 rpm!
About this creation



Watch this video of Ninja Girl. She uses the Ninjago Turbo Spin to save the Dojo of Sensei Wu!


The Ninjago Pull Stick

With this Pull Stick you can boost a Ninjago spinner to very high speeds.


Pull the rip cord to drive the spinner. The small cog wheels fit perfectly between the studs of a spinner. The Ninjago Pull Stick design fits well with the colors of Cole (Lego set 2112).


Left photo: The gear set in the pull stick increases the speed drastically.
Right photo: The spinner can be driven with or without using the top gear. When using the top gear, speeds up to 10.000 rpm can be reached! This is called the Turbo mode. It’s not possible to use minifigures in Turbo mode: they simply will shoot away, due to the high centrifugal forces.


The Ninjago Power Gun

This tool uses Power Functions to drive the spinner.


The Power Gun, can run roughly as fast as the Pull Stick, so 10.000 rpm! Theoretically the M-motor can reach 405 rpm [1]. Three gear sets are used, each with a gear ratio of 3 (24/8 tooth). As a result top speed will be 3 x 3 x 3 x 405 = 10935 rpm.

We measured the speed with a Lego Speed Computer (set number 5206). Unfortunately this computer can’t measure speeds beyond 4000 rpm as we discovered .....


Using the power gun is simple: press the small cog wheels on top of the spinner and start the M-motor to drive the spinner. The spinner speed is controlled by the push force between gun and spinner: the harder you push the gun, the lower the speed will be. After raising the gun the spinner runs on itself. It can run for more than 2:30 minutes on its own!


Film Set of the Dojo

Our film set includes the Dojo of Sensei Wu (Lego set number 2504). However, we made some modifications .....


A plate made of glass is put on top of the green Lego base plates. The spinners run very well on the hard and flat glass plate. Look behind the Dojo and discover a slope! It’s made from Lego set 4586 “Stunt Race Track”. The spinners fit nicely into this track.


Ninja Girl makes a Turbo Spin, runs down the hill ..... and smashes herself right through the doors of the Dojo! Watch the video to see how that works.
If you watch closely, you can see that Ninja Girl is assembled out of two minifigures from the Lego Minifigures Serie 3 collection (8803).


Don’t try this at home
Turbo spinning can be dangerous. At high speed parts can tear off and cause injuries.
Turbo spinning is not endorsed or approved by the Lego Group.

Quoting Dragon Mama my elder 2 sons (ages 7 and 4) are obsessed with BeyBlades, and they've injured one another with the rip cord things on those (because no matter how many times they're reminded to watch their aim and point only downward toward the "arena" they still "accidentally" aim at each other's faces instead). This is MUCH less potential for injury from what I can tell. I'm trying to wean them off BeyBlades onto Ninjago, if we can figure out how to make the manual pull one then this might really help that effort. Thanks for sharing!
Hello Dragon Mama, Thank you for your feedback! We never realised that turbo spinning might be saver than other shoot and spin toys on the market. We hope that your boys will have lots of play fun without harming one another. Regards.

Hi All, Thankx for your great comments! Unfortunatly we don't have any building instructions. If you like spinning: Have a look at the group "The Spinning Top Contest 2011" by Yuri Fassio. Have fun! Vuurzoon & Vuurzoon.

Hi All, Thankx for the many great responses! Unfortunatly we don't have any building instructions or LDD files. But if you visit the First Lego League European Championships in Delft (2-4 june 2011) you can have a look at these Ninjago Power Tools in the Mindstorms boot.

Hi Cyberfrank, Thankx for your great reaction! During our movie shoots we indeed started with 2 Ninjago's who were in a battle. However, they destroyed our scene before we could make a proper video of it..... So we decided to continue with 1 spinner.
