LEGO Legends of Chima – the story revealed…

in LEGO Legends of Chima

We have been hearing rumors and seeing some elusive pictures of the upcoming LEGO Legends of Chima theme. (See: 2013 LEGO Sets – Legends of Chima Pictures) And now we have more news! 😛

Yesterday I stumbled upon some more interesting info at the Eurobricks LEGO Legends of Chima thread. Member Gubi0222 found the story behind LEGO Legends of Chima  revealed at the Facebook Page of the one and only LEGO franchise-store in Hungary. Of course the story is in Hungarian, but a rough translation done with Google Translator has been provided at Eurobricks (see the link above).

I decided to dust off my knowledge of Hungarian, go back to the source and see if I can provide a bit better translation. So here it is:

“We were fortunate enough to be able take a look at the new LEGO Legends of Chima theme. Unfortunately at this point we cannot provide pictures, however to keep you from waiting, we are unveiling the story behind the legends.

The Chima Kingdom is a magical land, ruled by very advanced animal species. These creatures walk and talk like humans. They drive vehicles, use machinery, and live in amazing castles and fortresses. But don’t be mistaken; these animals still have claws, teeth, tails and some even wings. And right now they are at war with each other.

The Chima Kingdom that was once a pure and natural paradise, transformed into a barbaric battlefield of animal species armed to the teeth. Best friends turned into sworn enemies. Ruthless weapons are destroying the once sacred temples. In the forests blood-thirsty vehicles are furiously charging at each other in deadly duels.

The creatures are fiercely fighting over the possession of the super-powerful natural energy-source called Chi – which is the source of life, as well as the source of unimaginable destruction.

Only a few brave heroes understand the true nature of Chi, and that its misuse will lead to the total destruction of Chima. Their story, and the story of those who want to destroy them is known as The Legends of Chima…

LEGO Legends of Chima will be introduced next January with an initial 14 LEGO sets, along with a 22-minute independent TV-series. Are you ready?”

How do you like (or dislike) what you heard so far about LEGO Legends of Chima? Do you think it will be a worthy replacement of Ninjago (as rumored)? Some people also call this the lovely land of Fabuland going bad. What do you think? Share your thoughts below!  :roll:

I WANT BOTH!!! They should also make Lego Adventure Time sets.

Cool! I hope I can get them. I think I know who the bad guys are. I have seen some pictures and I believe they are the guys with the black wings not the white ones, crocodiles and wolves to (I think).

I like Ravens.


Jay-the best ninja (even as a microfig) December 12, 2012 at 4:57 PM

Noooooooooo! I like the crocs!


Worriz vs Furty February 25, 2013 at 12:19 PM

Same with me I like the Wolves -;)

I personally never really like Ninjago. What really appealed to me was Bionicle. Wish they bring it back but-sigh-had to replace it with Hero Factory, but that’s beside the point. Legends of Chima looks pretty amazing and can’t wait to see how the story unfolds. I’m a teenager and this looks pretty awesome. Probably no one reads these comments, but I’ve gotten my point across.

Garrett, yes, Chima looks interesting so far! In regards to your concern that nobody will read your comment, there are around 10,000 visits per day to TBB, and anyone who subscribes to a particular posts will be notified through their feedreader. In addition, I read every single comment myself. So yeah, you are welcome to share! 😉


Worriz vs Furty February 25, 2013 at 12:21 PM

Same with me, except I never got Bionicle myself. 😉

Looks interesting!But for now i would prefer a continuation of Ninjago.


Frank December 19, 2012 at 4:03 PM

wow, sounds cool!


Lego Man December 22, 2012 at 12:21 AM

I think Chima looks cool, and Ninjago is extreme, I would like them both. But, if I had to choose one, it would be Ninjago. NINJA-GO!


Lego Man December 22, 2012 at 12:24 AM

I mostly agree with Sasuto. P.s. What’s it going to take to have admin answer my comments? 😉


admin December 22, 2012 at 11:04 AM

Lego Man, even though I read every comment I usually don’t respond personally unless the question or comment is directly addressed to me. I’m already writing most of the articles, so that is enough writing for me. 😉


Kohdok December 22, 2012 at 10:34 PM

Soooooooooooooo, a few brave heroes are exploring and gathering a powerful and mystical energy source and have to fight other warriors to do it?

Sounds like another Redakai to me… I dunno, I’m currently thinking “Galidor 2”.


serpent-lover December 24, 2012 at 2:47 PM

I think Chima looks cool but I think ninjago is way better and I think Chima is kind of a copy of ninjago because they were 5 serpentine tribes at war and now they are making 5 animal species battling each other
at war for chima .


Wolfgirl January 11, 2013 at 12:46 PM

Agreed but I think it’s more copying Thundercats than Ninjago.


Worriz vs Furty February 25, 2013 at 12:23 PM

Five tribes????? As far as I can see there are 10 tribes!!!


Wolfgirl January 11, 2013 at 12:45 PM

😆 Sounds like a story I’m making only my story includes elves, and humans too. I might watch it; but it still seems like a bunch of Thundercat nonsense to me. 😛


Worriz vs Furty February 25, 2013 at 12:24 PM

Could you send my the story please??? :-(


crawley awsomeness February 18, 2013 at 10:21 PM

Worriz vs Furty February 25, 2013 at 12:25 PM

Same with me!! 😉 Except the Wolves are my tribe!!!!!!!! ;(

Yes, I have several direct connection to LEGO. They do stay in touch with larger LEGO blogs and forums to keep us informed of news, upcoming sets, press-releases, and other matters that is relevant to the LEGO fan community. Administrators of LEGO blogs and forums can also ask them questions, make request, etc.


crawley awsomness February 28, 2013 at 8:38 PM

Melissa July 2, 2013 at 3:12 AM

I was wondering what the story behind the line was. I think that the Legends Of Chima sounds like fun. I love the back story and the Speedorz. I love the animal based characters and vehicles in the line. I can’t wait for the Lion Chi Temple, which looks incredible. It’s got a Lion Head that acts as an entrace gate.
