Although 2013 is still a bit away, LEGO fans already wonder what the New Year will bring. We talked about the 2013 LEGO Star Wars sets in a previous post (see here: LEGO Star Wars News & Rumors of 2013 Sets), and today I would like to share with you an image sent in by our blogger friend Inger from TheBrickLife.com. She said she just received her latest LEGO Club Magazine with the following image.
Curious, huh? So what could it be? Recently LEGO trademarked two new names: “Speedorz” and “The Legend of Chima”. Speedorz appears to be some kind of a car-racing theme, judging by the name. Perhaps like LEGO Racers.
As far as The Legend of Chima, we can only speculate. Some LEGO fans say it may be another ninja/samurai type theme, perhaps the one that supposed to replace Ninjago. Other say it may be related to the legends of a Native American tribe in Trinidad, called the Chima, Chaima, or Chayma. According to legend, the Chima Indians were swallowed up by a lake as a punishment from the gods for disrespecting their ancestors. This could make a cool LEGO theme and story-line, don’t you think?
There is also an indication of another 2013 LEGO theme called LEGO Polar X-Plorer or Polar X-Press, featuring a research theme in a snowy/icy setting as reported on the EuroBricks Forum. From the icy look of the image above, it could likely be referring to this theme. Perhaps explorers and scientists are looking for some rare crystals while being attacked by wild polar beast?
What do you think? And which 2013 LEGO theme are you looking forward to? And what do you think The Legend of Chima is about? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
