2013 LEGO theme mystery – what is this?

in Other News & Updates

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! 😉

legend of chima! im sick of racing lego themes 🙄

J.C. September 4, 2012 at 12:20 PM

The Legend of Chima sounds kind of lame. I bet it’s like Indiana Jones.

legosw September 4, 2012 at 12:45 PM

well, according to a friend of mine, the chima thing is gonna replace ninjago

The Yellow Ninja September 4, 2012 at 12:46 PM

I don’t think, I KNOW that this is the speedorz theme.

J.C. September 4, 2012 at 12:54 PM

I hope not!

legosw September 4, 2012 at 12:58 PM

well, for sure ninjago is going in january

legosw September 4, 2012 at 12:59 PM

speedors is replacing racers

The Yellow Ninja September 4, 2012 at 1:02 PM

I know. but it i kind of sad. 🙁

NRG PYTHOR September 4, 2012 at 2:39 PM

im going to miss ninjago 😥

ntk743 September 4, 2012 at 3:24 PM

Well, Ninjagos not dead yet! And LEGO said that it may not even die in 2013

Taryn (Ninja of Electronics) September 4, 2012 at 3:39 PM

nooooo not ninjago!!!!!!! keep ninjago! keep ninjago!

Taryn (Ninja of Electronics) September 4, 2012 at 3:46 PM

there are so many lego fans, not just here so why take it away?????????

IronJupiter50 September 4, 2012 at 4:06 PM

I’m hoping for a Polar theme with large Power Miners like vehicles.


yes i agree with u iron jupiter but sad about ninjago mixed : ( 🙂


just got a lego taco bell gretings from my lego town

Shade Snake September 4, 2012 at 4:43 PM

That is weird. My lego club magazine does not have that image. I have the latest issue.

legolotr September 4, 2012 at 5:12 PM

What friend of your’s?

admin September 4, 2012 at 5:36 PM

Shade Snake, it is the Australian version of the LEGO Club Magazine that has the image. 😉

Kay (The Silver Ninja of Air) September 4, 2012 at 6:51 PM

Hmm… Legend of Chima… *gets in The Thinker pose* DEFINENTLY sounds Ninjago-ish, but it also sounds Avatar: The Last Airbender-ish too… Hm…

ntk’s right, he reached out to LEGO (..or was it the other guy? Sorry, but I get you guys confused :S) and LEGO replied that there is no official confirmation that Ninjago is ending in 2013. If it did, it would be a major loss in profits though, because Ninjago is a big money-booster in the LEGO theme industry (or whatever that’s called :P). And plus, the TV series and sets themselves have been loved by many! So I doubt that Ninjago will end by 2013. It’s gonna stay around for a while :).

admin September 4, 2012 at 8:06 PM

Kay, that’s a good point about it being Ninjago-ish and Airbender-ish. We shall see! 😀

Kay (The Silver Ninja of Air) September 4, 2012 at 8:38 PM

Yeah, “Chima” sounds Ninjago and legend of sparked my fond admiration for The Legend of Korra. And I’m SO RANT-ISH TONIGHT! I think I’m just way too Spinjitsuin’ excited for my field trip tomorrow!!!

Micho September 5, 2012 at 12:23 AM

I hope Legends of Chima IS like you decribet it Anna. I’m excited becaus eit might include minifigs like the Aztec Warriror or teh OCnquistador from the CMFs… That would be tubular!!!!!

gid617 September 5, 2012 at 6:50 AM

I thinmk they might extend it too. After all, Ninjago’s apparently doing much better this year than they thought it would, so ending now wouldn’t make too much sense (to me). But Legends of Chima does sound like a potential replacement.

gid617 September 5, 2012 at 7:04 AM

Me too! Especially if it had arctic animals (although, if it was power miner type. . .)

admin September 5, 2012 at 8:35 AM

Micho, yeah, I also thought about the possibility of some version of the Aztec Warrior being part of this theme. After all LEGO made the mold for that gorgeous headgear! It would be a shame to use it for only one minifigure! 😀

Micho September 5, 2012 at 11:35 AM

Found a small article on the Chima Indians… very interesting that there is a conquistador standing over a Chima Indian.

Micho September 5, 2012 at 11:41 AM

actually he’s standing over another conquistador, but they do talk about awinged king/god kinda like the Aztec Warrior… verrrrry interesting

bejeken September 5, 2012 at 12:21 PM

This is a Mystery????????????????Im 90% percent shure tahat its going to be cool.

Maxx September 5, 2012 at 12:39 PM

Can’t it be it’s : Ninjago, the legend of Chima?

Xi ninja September 5, 2012 at 4:27 PM

No!!!!!!!!!!!! My birthday’s in January!!!!!!! This is the most depressing coincidence ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😥

nace10 September 5, 2012 at 5:27 PM

They should just stop spongebob not ninjago.
lego spongebob is lame…

cole zx September 5, 2012 at 7:15 PM

don’t like they are getting rid of ninjago. legends of chime sounds like it sucks!

admin September 5, 2012 at 7:36 PM

Maxx, that is actually a really interesting idea! Haven’t thought of that, but it sounds good! 🙄

admin September 5, 2012 at 7:38 PM

Micho, very interesting article! We shall see how this legend will unfold! 🙄

Micho September 5, 2012 at 8:43 PM

Glad you enjoyed the read Anna, I sure didn’t know anything about the Chima until this morning.

Micho September 5, 2012 at 8:59 PM

would “NinjaGo: Legends of Chima” sound better??? Maxx just brought that up

The Yellow Ninja September 6, 2012 at 1:39 PM

I have to admit, that does have a nice ring to it.

Taryn (Ninja of Electronics) September 6, 2012 at 5:16 PM

honestly, where are the lgo spongebob fans? where are the news???

Taryn (Ninja of Electronics) September 6, 2012 at 5:17 PM

cool. so the ninja will have new opponents!!! i actually sent an email to lego asking if the rumors of ninjago leaving were true. they said it was confidential or something

Micho September 6, 2012 at 8:12 PM

Well that’s pretty messed up!!! But hey!, at least they answered.

stewbrick901 September 7, 2012 at 7:19 AM

It kind of sounds like Chinese-themed sets, so I don’t think it’s more of a replacement, just a new theme 🙂

studless September 11, 2012 at 11:54 AM

Who’s to say that it won’t replace the pharaohs quest.

It sounds like an adventure style theme to me.

I have a Lego city that takes up two rooms of my house,started in1976. How about a new hospital or a school? Just a suggestion

orange ninja November 29, 2012 at 7:18 AM

DON’T REPLACE NINJAGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PND November 30, 2012 at 9:49 PM

Lego Chima ? What ? That sucks if it’s gonna replace ninjago ! Are you out of your brick-built minds ?

Zane zx December 5, 2012 at 6:38 PM


Zane zx December 5, 2012 at 6:39 PM

it seems a little interesting

No you didn't! January 5, 2013 at 12:52 PM

Not even close. You should actually see the sets.

tgb.legoguy January 15, 2013 at 7:12 PM

Is the polar-X rumor true?

admin January 15, 2013 at 7:59 PM

The Polar-X rumor pretty much died out. And of course now we know that the poster with the question mark was referring to Chima. 😉
