LEGO Legends of Chima first trailer!

by admin on November 29, 2012

in LEGO Legends of Chima

I’m so used to posting Ninjago episodes on Thursdays I don’t know what to do with myself. LOL! Anyhow, at the end of the last episode of Ninjago, Cartoon Network showed the first trailer of LEGO Legends of Chima – I thought to share that with you guys here so we can all discuss it instead of lamenting about the end of Ninjago. One legend is over and a new one begins… behold the Legends of Chima! :P

Below is the trailer for LEGO Legends of Chima. Not very long, but it still gives us some hints and clues about the overall story and characters. (You can read more about the LEGO Legends of Chima story-line here: LEGO Legends of Chima Sets Pictures!)

I’m very hopeful for Legends of Chima. First of all it is created by the same team that was working on Ninjago. That could only mean good things. I know a lot of Ninjago fans are upset that the Ninjago saga is over, but I would suggest giving Chima a chance. In some ways it is a continuation of Ninjago as the same team created it, and it also gives us a fresh story. Also, it is likely that it will be even better as the designers learned a lot from the Ninjago experience, having a chance to perfect their skills. :D

We have already discussed the first wave of LEGO Legends of Chima sets (see: LEGO Legends of Chima: The Story Revealed), and I have also heard rumors that larger sets are also coming later in 2013. Things like a lion-castle (maybe something like what you see on the first picture?) and an eagle-fort. That would be awesome! And how about a crocodile-lair as shown in the trailer? Wouldn’t that be awesome? :roll:

I really like the nature-fantasy blend of Legends of Chima. It also carries over the idea of both flying and ground vehicles from Ninjago.

Legends of Chima will also have large versions of at least some of the characters also called constraction figures (Construction + Action = Constraction - a term used by LEGO for large action figures) as the animals seems to be able to transform to a huge form when they use the power of chi.

There is also going to be a LEGO Legends of Chima game called Speedorz, based on interesting animal-shaped bikes powered by ripcords and given various challenges. (You can see all the Speedorz game-sets here: LEGO Legends of Chima Sets Pictures!)

So what do you think? How do you like LEGO Legends of Chima after seeing the trailer? I would love to hear your thoughts, especially if you are a Ninjago fan! Also, have you noticed other interesting of hidden details that may give us more clues about the story and the character? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss below! ;)

Not yet, but it is likely going to be similar to the artwork on the upcoming books. I should write a post about this, or Geneva, do you wan’t to do it? ;)

Yeah, it is going to be a very involved theme with everything included; games, online games, tournament, books, a TV show, and of course the sets. I will write about it for Thursday. ;)

Awesome! From the Speedorz set previews, they look really cool!

I noticed people aren’t commenting as much (if at all) for the past week on both the Ninjago section and the Chima section (not sure about the others though). I’m guessing it is because of 2 reasons, the main one being that (of corse!) it’s the Holidays! and 2 being that Ninjago is over and Chima hasn’t begun so there isn’t really much to talk ABOUT. :neutral:
:D

Yes, I would think that once the Chima episodes start we will have more discussions again. Traffic has been growing every week, so TBB in general is visited by more people then ever. But they are more spread out.

Also, there are interesting trends, like even though Saturday and Sunday are consistently the busiest days as far a straffic, those days also get the least comments. I guess it means that the regulars spending more time on the site during the week, and do other acitivites during the weekend, while the “silent crowd” visit the weekend. It is actually pretty interesting to watch the charts. ;)

I’m thinking I will continue posting something about Ninjago or Chima on Thursdays, to keep the tradition of having something on that day for Ninjago fans (since likely a lot of them will move on to Chima anyway).

Yeah, because nothing exciting ever happens on thursday! (except Ninjago being posted, and now Chima, i guess.)

I ALWAYS have the least amount of school on Thursday AND I don’t have ANYTHING going on on Thursday! It makes it a long wait for the episode… :roll:

GUYS! THEY WILL MAKE A GORILLA FACTION IN THE SUMMER 2013 WAVE! ONE OF THEM IS GORZAN (SOUNDS LIKE TARZAN).

PS Admin, what’s your favorite faction?

ninjasamuraiguy December 11, 2012 at 5:27 PM

By the way, there will be action figures of LAVAL, ERIS, GORZAN (good or bad?), CRAGGER, RAZAR and WORRIZ.

Just testing my Gravatar. Also, some information from Brickset: This is the claim made by the LEGO senior brand manager in the UK in an article in this month’s Toy News magazine.

The article goes on to say that LEGO expects Chima sales to be 30% more than Ninjago’s was in 2012, although “Ninjago still remains one of the most successful and popular IPs to date for us [which we] fully expect to continue next year.”

The Chima line is said to “include construction play-sets, social game Speedorz, six Hero-Factory style buildable figures and board games, with the latter two arriving in August”.

LEGO UK will apparently be embarking on a nine month roadshow known as the ‘Chima Challenge’ which will include Speedorz contests with national league tables, pop-up cinemas showing the cartoon and chances for kids to meet Chima characters.

The article also sheds some light on the back-story: “a conflict between six tribes — three good (Lions, Eagles and Gorillas) and three bad (Crocodiles, Ravens and Wolves).”

All in all, it sounds like they are very excited and are going overboard both in terms of the number of products and on promoting it. It looks as if anyone wanting to be ‘Chima complete’ will need very deep pockets, I believe there are around 36 Chima products due in 2013 alone.

Zubashi, your gravatar is great! I will be publishing a post tomorrow about Chima, so maybe you can share your thoughts and insights there and we can continue this discussion. Chima sounds interesting so far! :D

Is anyone going to monitor the LEGO site to see if anything new pops up? I’ve been waiting for a while for a Raven Faction wallpaper download.

I do check the site regularly for new images. I’m thinking of writing a post about them too as they do reveal some interesting details. :)

Whoa…. maybe that’s a little too much?

I can’t wait to get Speedorz Fire Ring and, later, the Razar action figure.

I saw the first episode of Chima and thought I’d give it a shot. And guess what? It was stupider than I thought it would be. I almost fell asleep in the middle of it! They’re trying to make it funny but it’s dumb! Just as dumb as lego teenage mutant ninja turtles. I demand that you bring lego ninjago back or I won’t buy legos anymore! Lego Ninjago forever! It was my second favorite show!

Reply

Ben B April 17, 2013 at 3:20 PM

And why can’t you guys have Lego Ninjago and Lego Chima at the same time, like beyblade is doing the beywheels and beyblade metal masters at the same time… I mean come on!

Reply

Ben B April 17, 2013 at 3:21 PM

Why can’t you just have them both at the same time? I need to see more episodes!

Reply

Ben B April 17, 2013 at 3:22 PM

My favorite show was canceled too. But it had like 6 or 7 seasons. So I don’t care. But Lego Ninjago had only like 26 or 27 episodes. Dear Lego Company, BRING NINJAGO BACK!

Reply

Pink Ninja April 17, 2013 at 3:24 PM

Even my little brother hates Lego Chima! Lego Ninjago rules! So bring it back! If you can’t think of more ideas…. maybe I should work for you. I’ve got tons. I even write my own stories!

Pink Ninja, thanks for sharing. Just want to make sure that you are aware that this is a LEGO fan-site. We are all friends here, not LEGO employees. We don’t work for LEGO. ;)

If you have no more ideas for Lego ninjago then I could give you some. I have a lot of ideas for it. I write Lego Ninjago stories for myself.
