My son is really into the Ninjago cartoon (I think he's mainly watched the first season, over and over again on Netflix). For Christmas we're going to give him a couple of Ninjago sets, but I also want to BrickLink the other major characters so he can play out adventures. Am I right in that this would give him a fairly complete set:
I know there are like six iterations of each character, but I want to start by making sure he has one of each of the main guys. Are there specific weapons each of the four main guys fights with? What hairs should I get for them when they're not wearing their ninja hoods? Also, are Nya and Lloyd very important? I've only watched a couple of episodes with him, but they seem kind of like sidekicks. I gather that Lord Garmadon is the main villain, but what would be a couple of other basic villains for them to fight?
Edit: I've read through the Wikipedia page, and I really don't think he's watched the second and third season. So, for instance, I think that the green ninja would not be so important to him. Also, are the snakes just in the second season? I still think i'll probably get one or two of those, since he'll think they look cool.
