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 🙄
The Legend of Chima sounds kind of lame. I bet it’s like Indiana Jones.
well, according to a friend of mine, the chima thing is gonna replace ninjago
I hope not!
well, for sure ninjago is going in january
What friend of your’s?
Not even close. You should actually see the sets.
I don’t think, I KNOW that this is the speedorz theme.
speedors is replacing racers
I know. but it i kind of sad. 🙁
im going to miss ninjago 😥
Well, Ninjagos not dead yet! And LEGO said that it may not even die in 2013
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 :).
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.
It kind of sounds like Chinese-themed sets, so I don’t think it’s more of a replacement, just a new theme 🙂
nooooo not ninjago!!!!!!! keep ninjago! keep ninjago!
there are so many lego fans, not just here so why take it away?????????
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 : ( 🙂
Me too! Especially if it had arctic animals (although, if it was power miner type. . .)
just got a lego taco bell gretings from my lego town
That is weird. My lego club magazine does not have that image. I have the latest issue.
Shade Snake, it is the Australian version of the LEGO Club Magazine that has the image. 😉
Hmm… Legend of Chima… *gets in The Thinker pose* DEFINENTLY sounds Ninjago-ish, but it also sounds Avatar: The Last Airbender-ish too… Hm…
~ the silver ninja 😉
Kay, that’s a good point about it being Ninjago-ish and Airbender-ish. We shall see! 😀
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!!!
~ the silver ninja 😉
Can’t it be it’s : Ninjago, the legend of Chima?
Maxx, that is actually a really interesting idea! Haven’t thought of that, but it sounds good! 🙄
Who’s to say that it won’t replace the pharaohs quest.
It sounds like an adventure style theme to me.
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!!!!!
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! 😀
Found a small article on the Chima Indians… very interesting that there is a conquistador standing over a Chima Indian.
actually he’s standing over another conquistador, but they do talk about awinged king/god kinda like the Aztec Warrior… verrrrry interesting
Micho, very interesting article! We shall see how this legend will unfold! 🙄
Glad you enjoyed the read Anna, I sure didn’t know anything about the Chima until this morning.
This is a Mystery????????????????Im 90% percent shure tahat its going to be cool.
No!!!!!!!!!!!! My birthday’s in January!!!!!!! This is the most depressing coincidence ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😥
They should just stop spongebob not ninjago.
lego spongebob is lame…
honestly, where are the lgo spongebob fans? where are the news???
don’t like they are getting rid of ninjago. legends of chime sounds like it sucks!
would “NinjaGo: Legends of Chima” sound better??? Maxx just brought that up
I have to admit, that does have a nice ring to it.
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
Well that’s pretty messed up!!! But hey!, at least they answered.
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
DON’T REPLACE NINJAGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lego Chima ? What ? That sucks if it’s gonna replace ninjago ! Are you out of your brick-built minds ?
I SEARCHED UP THE LEGENDS OF CHIMA AND IT HAS A LOT OF TRIBES AND ANIMAL PEOPLE
it seems a little interesting
Is the polar-X rumor true?
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. 😉
