LEGO is really pulling out all stops as far as promoting the new LEGO Legends of Chima theme. Here are some updates you don’t want to miss!
➡ First of all the LEGO Legends of Chima micro-site is now live! This means no more teaser-images only, but everything you ever wanted to know about the world of Chima and its characters. Of course there are pages for all the LEGO Legends of Chima sets and Speedorz game sets, including designer videos. There is a news section with the latest updates. There are also videos about the world of Chima, the characters, the upcoming TV show, and also on how to play the Speedorz game (including how to use the cards). You can also download wallpapers, posters, building instructions, and in general immerse yourself in the Legends of Chima.
➡ The LEGO Club Magazine has its entire front section dedicated to Legends of Chima, including an awesome poster, and a removable comic-book section to get you started understanding the story behind the legends. It is interesting to note from both the LEGO Chima music-video above and from the LEGO Club Magazine that the Lion prince Laval, and Cragger (who took over the leadership of the Crocodile Tribe following the disappearance of his parents), used to be best friends, until Cragger got greedy and decided to take all the CHI of Chima for himself. The other tribes (the Eagles, Ravens, and Wolves) are basically just taking sides in the main battle between the Lions and Crocodiles.
From the video you can also see there are other animal tribes. Of course we already know about the Gorillas, but you can also see some Rhinos and Bears. At this point we do know that the Gorillas will be in the summer wave of LEGO Legends of Chima sets, however there is no information on the Rhinos and Bears. Will they appear in a future LEGO Legends of Chima set? We just have to wait and see…
➡ The third big LEGO Legends of Chima news item is the release of Legends of Chima video-games. There is the LEGO Legends of Chima Speedorz Online Game – a racing game that is already available on the LEGO Legends of Chima micro-site, and will also come to iOS devices. Then, there is an adventure game called LEGO Legends of Chima: Laval’s Journey, where players can fight alongside Laval and his friends. The game is currently under development by TT Games. It will be available on PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS later in the year. And there is also going to be a LEGO Legends of Chima Online Game. This is going to be a free-to-play game where players can customize their own world, execute missions, etc. The game is being devel0ped by WP Games Montreal and should be available in the fall. You can read the full Press Release here.
➡ The last LEGO Legends of Chima news to be aware of is that there will be a one hour LEGO Legends of Chima series preview on Cartoon Network on Wednesday, January 16th. Make sure you don’t miss that!
So, these are the big news items right now in the world of Chima. There are other, smaller details and news that are definitely interesting, but let’s just stay with these for now. There is plenty to see, learn and digest. Keep in mind that if you go the LEGO Legends of Chima website it may load slow for you. In this case just go back later. The site is obviously flooded by curious fans who want to see and try out everything at once!
So what do you think? Did you find something interesting at the Legends of Chima website? Did you play the Speedorz Online Game? How did you like it? What do you think of the characters and their stories? Share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below!

I think I have to collect Chima!
Nice! I like the Gorillas!
Quoting @nace10:I think I have to collect Chima!: DITTO!!!!!!!
Admin can you post the episodes on here plzzzzzz ya i love chima so does my little bro but my sis HATE it she says itz dum!
you should wait to 16th of january
Ok. I went on the site. I read some bios. I learned about Chi. NOW I WANT CHIMA!!!!!!!!
Is there a way to watch the special online? We don’t have cable my son would LOVE to see this…
Not as I’m aware of. I’m pretty sure at some point someone will upload it to YouTube, but it can take a while. I would suggest to make friends with a neighborhood family who has CN. Bring over some cookies or something. 😉
Yeah, i think that it will be released on the website. They did that for the first few ninjago episodes, but i’m not sure if they did for the rest.
Frank, that is actually a really good point and very much possible. 🙂
I got the LEGO catalog yesterday. Chima is on the cover with a mini poster inside. One side is the pics of the mini-figs, the other is is similar to the ad for the cartoon network special. Plus if you spend $75 or more at LEGO they give you a free Chima 33 piece set.
Lego try’s to hook people to Chima with speedorz and cool videos and games. Just like ninjago
I think chima is going run over ninjago. The animal characters reminds me alot like the thundercats only better. I just got my first chima set Lennox’s lion attack. It’s a fun set. I wanted to start off small not sure what to think , but after putting it together. I thought this is pretty cool. I am hooked .
I think it will be cool to other people, but I think its gonna stink worse than expected. 😛
What?! They’re giving Chima a video game?! The Ninjago one was only for DS. This stinks. 😛
I got my new lego catalog recently! The Chima sets and characters look great! (although the lions are kind of goofy). The number of cyborgs is impressive! Razar has a metal beak and left arm, Rizzo has a robotic leg and eye, and Krug (the dark brown crocodile) has a metal Jaw!!! It’s annoying how Rizzo is the only animal not to have a decal on his legs. Maybe I’ll just take the legs from one of the many copies of Razar I’m sure to get and use them for Rizzo’s belt and left leg. The new animals look awesome as well! Can’t wait for the series to start! Ninja-…. or I mean Chima-Go!!!
Darkon, out of curiosity; why don’t you like printed legs? I’m asking because those are my favorites. It really enhances a minifig’s look. At least in my opinion. 😉
I think Darkon was trying to say that he didn’t like the fact that all the Ravens except Rizzo had leg printing. (More like he didn’t like the absence of printing of Rizzo rather than the printing on the rest. 😉 )
You could be right. 🙄
P.S. Not all the characters that use chi are princes or princesses. Razar uses chi and he’s just a general. Razcal is Lord Rawzom’s son. You can tell by the fact that he has the same golden crest on his legs as Rawzom and he’s in alot better shape than Razar and Rizzo. 😀
LOL… I think it’s funny how the perception towards Chima has changed so much from when it was first announced… this just proves again that no one should pre-judge
Yeah… jut like Ninjago… everyone thought Ninjago was the lamest thing ever. Some people still think that way, but they can’t deny it has been a success. I think it will be the same with Chima. Whereas LEGO will make the money they invested into it back, that is another question. They have been spending huge sums on advertising Chima. Much more agressive then what they have done with Ninjago in the early stages…
WEEKEND WHIP IS WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY BETTER!!!!!!!!!!! CHIMA, U SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU CANT EVEN COMPETE WITH NINJAGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >:( >:( >:(
I see why in your tag it says:
Seriously I have a mouth of lightning
And even though you do not agree with Chima, or maybe even it’s theme song, and may think that Chima is the worst choice of a new theme, and Lego should probably focus more on Ninjago, and maybe even make an online world for ninjago instead!!!, (sorry, got a little carried away there) doesn’t mean it isn’t amazing to say, maybe an extremely annoying brother who thinks it is the most AMAZING theme in the world! 🙄 🙂
FYI, that annoying brother is my brother, and he is VERY ANNOYING! 🙂
Exactly!!!!! Ninjago is better!!!!!!!!!!!
You wan’t lego to be cancled FOREVER. I like both shows and you should be talking about this in the ninjago section.
Um admin are you going to do lego Galaxy Squad?
Micah, I have already answered the same question from you before. 😕
Well i asked again because i forgot where i wrote it the first time!
Micah, yeah, it is a good idea to subscribe to the post that you are interested in or at least add them to your favorites. I don’t want to repeat everything I said in my previous response, but the short answer is that we have been discussing Galaxy Squad extensively. The posts are under the “Other LEGO Themes” section. 😉
there are some people who want to see it, and some people who just hate it. Because that’s the real problem in life. JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS!
PS: NINJAGO WON’T END!
Josh is right ninjago will be back in 2014
Is the song by The Fold?
I don’t think so. It seems like a new band. Let me check…
Definitely a new band. The lead singer is entirely different and the drummer has a Mohawk! Wonder who the band is?
i think the guy with the mohawk is the lead singer from ninjago!
No, the lead singer is the guy with the curly hair, isn’t it?
i don’t know 😳
I just saw the ninjago theme song and there is two mastakes nobody had a mohawk and the lead guy in the fold has no curly hair he has normal hair.
they probably just changed their hair
I doubt it. It is most likely that Lego just hired a new band for some reason, and by looking into the videos, you will find that the proof is in the pudding! 🙂
obviously no, the fold rock! those weirdo’s dont rock!
I agree with DX ZX KENDO NRG PWR JAY-MOUTH OF LIGHTNING (Seriously i have a mouth of lightning) : )
has anyone called you that JAY.
Alot of people have called me Jay because my name is Jordan. (Sorry if I am off topic Admin 😳 )
Gosh, Why is everyone being a fanboy/girl?
Hmm… I have to say the online game sounds very familiar to LEGO Universe. I looked at the sets and I have to say they are very well done. I personally like the Eagle Castle set!
WHY IS IT SO HARD TO GET A GRAVITAR. :grumpy:
Gravatar? like the icons by comments? A globally recognized avatar you have to go to http://en.gravatar.com/ enter your email and upload an image. It’s easy but since it’s the net ask your parents first.
Awesome! I am definitely getting some Chima sets! So many cool sets for 2013! I want them all! How am I going to afford 2013! Plus I need to work on storage!
Aww they were best friends wow how can wanting power change lots of stuff about people (animals)
Just like humans.
People arent always on 😉
I like your gravitar NRG Pythor
one time kai glitched and looked like normal kai with armor.
chima’s summer sets are;
-Eglor’s Twin Bike(eagles)
-Worriz’ Combat Lair(wolves)
-The Lion CHI temple(lions)
-Croc Swamp Hideout(crocodiles)
I found a link for what CHI is!
Hey is Josh here. I’d like to say something to him.
Good job! 😀
Has anyone seen the theme song yet.
Everyone I’ll have a gravitar the next time I come.
I remeber my first comment here and it was random:
ultamate green ninja let’s talk my freind is him. he dosn’t use this blog anymore.
Laval, I have deleted most of your comments and I’m putting your account under moderation for the sanity of our readers. Writing a bunch of inappropriate and irrelevant comments is not a proper use of this forum. Please write comments that are relevant to the discussion or is helpful to another member. This is not chat. Thank you for your cooperation.
At least it’s better than the Ninjago theme! 😛
NOTHING will be better then Ninjago no matter WHAT lego says 👿
I went to the Burlington Mall and got two Chima sets. I got Wakz’ Pack Tracker and the King Crominus Speedor.
And, how do you like them? 🙂
The cannon on the pack tracker is pretty cool. I even knocked down the boulders with it.
I got my first Lego Legends of Chima set it is…………………Razcal’s Glider! For those of you who don’t know Razcal is a Raven
Skunks are tribes too! Seems to be allied with the Lions, Eagles and Gorillas. (Also, they have descriptions for Royal Roost, Sky Joust and Whirling Vines to)
Also, seems the Bears are good, Rhinos bad.
NEW TRAILER AS WELL.
Yeah, I saw that trailer yesterday. Isn’t it awesome? 😀
It is :). Cragger’s voice is a bit odd if you ask me.
Yeah, so much news, it is hard to keep up! 🙄
Does Cragger’s voice sound at all like Samukai’s to you in the Command Ship/ Laval’s Truck-thingymajigger commercial?
Haven’t seen that. He sounds so young in the cartoon.
I would like to own a Speedor!
Also, imagine if the ninja from Ninjago used Chi! It would be awesome!
That’s actually a great idea! ALso, imagine if LEGO would merge Ninjago with Chima. That would be crazy awesome!
I had a dream where that happened. Not kidding. 😛
I am planning on getting Crawley’s Claw Ripper. It’s a pretty cool set. It comes with Crawley and Leonidas. But there is one problem,it only has 1 weapon. Leonidas has a type of sword called a valious. It also comes with the lion tribe’s chi. I may get a speedor so I can give one of the assorted weapons to Crawley. I am really looking forward to the Legends of Chima sets!
I wanna get Cragger’s Command Ship and the Eagle’s Castle sets! (I like Worriz the wolf’s mini figure! 😉 )
OMG I WANT ALL THE TRIBES MINIFIGS! I HOPE THEY RELEASE THE BEAR, GORILLA & RHYNO TRIBES BY THE END OF THE SUMMER!
I bet there will be tribes of animals that in the live in the ocean!
As far as tribes…the official Lego website states that the tribes that exist within Chima are Lions, Crocodiles, Ravens, Eagles, Wolves, Bears, Gorillas, and Rhinos. Skunks and any other animals were not listed so it can be safe to assume that these nine animals will be more than enough material to create sets around. As of right now the Wolves need some more sets as they only have one.
Agreed. I’ve heard about the skunk tribe from a small wiki and as behalf of my part, there is no one to prove that there is a ninth tribe, and for that matter, sounds completely like the Anacondria from Ninjago. But, if I may presume, I beleive considering the wolf pack is well, based on wolves, I beleive there will be no landmasses for that tribe, and, the sets will be mainly small and rummaged sets of skinned bricks and printed plates. And, as so, I see not many wolf sets so far
As I hate to do (Do two comments back to back) Yet, I still should say this slim possiblilty. There is, as far as I can think of, going to be a cut off of Legends of Chima when Ninjago returns, Right? So, it may be possible (Yet I don’t see how this would mix and make any sense…) That Ninjago and Legends of Chima Combine during 2014. I see this idea impossible (For those who have read Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy) and that the odds are about two-thosand three-hundred ninty-six to one and rising. So, I don’t know why I even said this…
Guys I HAVE AWESOME NEWS you can watch Chima early on youtube!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
but sadly it is just a differnt sneak peak…………………………… 🙁
I think chima is awesome and i love the gorilla’s cant wait to see them in show and the minifigures 🙂
I would see the preview episode (16th), But my main goal for this series is to at the very least watch the episodes on television… I do feel sad to do so… I might as well cheat through Youtube… Yup… I’ll do that
I think the pilot episode is about how there is still peace but the episodes after are about the “Chi War”.
Or maybe it is just the Chi war starting and all that stuff. 😀
Guys do you know that this is cragger to. Pause it when he steels the chi frome laval he has the crown on you see and he has a white eye. he must put the crown on!
I got some clips how do I put them on here?
Kai, you mean video-clips? You can just link to them. 😉
He has the crown that his father crominus wore but crominus and his mother crunket went missing and he blamed the lion’s which explains why he is wearing the crown and attacking the temple and stealing chi also his white eye is a scratched out eye he has 1 good eye.
I think there should be a chameleon tribe
That would be really cool a charmeleon tribe.
I saw this on lego.com lol http://images.wikia.com/lego/images/f/f3/Legoistooexcitedaboutchima.png
Oh and by the way i did not take this picture i found it on brickipedia.com
Oh wow. 🙂
Yeah, I saw that too. Pretty funny!
Does anyone else find it ironic and funny that in the TV trailer they have on LEGO.com, there is one point where Laval is riding on a Lion? 😛
LOL! Yeah, of course lions supposed to ride lions! Makes sense! 🙄
I’m getting the raven glider soon, I would get more but I have to buy them online
I just got the raven glider and it is sweet! it is only about $12.00 but really cool!
Yeah, that’s a sweet little set! 🙂
Today is the day! ill have to wait longer until 8 or 9 for someone to upload it but it is a few hours away.
Yep! Today is the day! I really hope someone will upload it to YouTube soon! If you find a link let me know so we can share it with the others here! 😉
Ok i will,ninjago episodes uploaded by 8:30 to 9:30 so about 2 hours.
Yeah, remember that? The good old days! 🙂
Episode 2 is starting now i guess..nothing of episode 1 on youtube yet,i hope ninjagohd2 who uploaded ninjago uploads chima.
I’m pretty sure that youtuber removed all of his Ninjago videos due to copyright laws. Or so I’ve heard. 😐
Yes that is why he removed them.
Chima was excellent! At first, I thought it wasn’t too good (first meaning the beginning of the episode, not when i first heard about Chima), but when it got to the second episode, it was AWESOME!!! Still not as AWESOME as Ninjago, but a close second!! (Oh, and ironicly they had the last episode of Ninjago on right before they showed Chima.) And apparently there ARE skunks! I wonder if /when the’ll have the next episode. (I’m 99.99999999…% sure that they will have more episodes)
Yes, I’m pretty sure Chima will continue with more episodes. I’m glad you enjoyed it! 😀
No one has uploaded it has been an hour since episode 2 aired i hope it is up in the next 30 minutes 😐
I knew skunk’s were real in chima http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130117015431/lego/images/3/35/Skinnet_TV.png
Can someone show the story of episode1/2?
hey guys part 1 only
Awesome! Hope the second part will show up shortly too! 😉
Other parts are there.
It is copyrighted 🙁 ill have to watch the episodes on teletoon probally.
Check these out the first episodes!!
Tom, thanks! Yes, I will be uploading them here as well tomorrow. 😉
Wow that was where i watched those 2 episodes 2 hours ago looks like they will upload them all.
Yeah, that’s my hope as well. And I’m sure people will upload them to YouTube too eventually. 🙂
can I uplaod these on youtube?
check ot my channels
You certainly could, except that LEGO may force YouTube to shut down your account. 🙁
My mistake it looks like the website i was on but it is a diffrent website.
So the Legend Beasts. No Wolves, Ravens or Crocodiles. Lions, Gorillas, Eagles, Rhinos and Bears.
Also, Skinnet could be a martial artist of some kind.
Where can I buy Lego Club magazines?
Oksana, where are you located? If you are in the USA, you can just call LEGO and they will send them to you. They are free. I think they are also free in some European countries, and in some countries it is a paid subscription. So it just depends. 😉
Maybe theres more lego Chima episodes at Naver.com justd like Ninjago episodes except there in korean.
Ummm Why is the mr green happy face not working? 😕
Because it supposed to be mrgreen all together between these : at both end. I fixed it for ya. 😉
Chima theme song doesn’t sound as great as Weekend Whip in my opinion . . . Oh well, Ninjago is over. we might as well enjoy Chima now. 😥
No it’s returning in 2014
Hi admin how old is laval?
Hm… in different cultures the coming-of-age ceremony comes at different times for boys. So he could be anywhere between 12 and 18 I would say.
Hey admin I thought about 10 he sound like it or younger because him an cragger used to play fighting that is like something a 12 year old wont do 😐
