Great new for LEGO Legends of Chima fans! Pictures of the #70014 LEGO Legends of Chima Croc Swamp Hideout have been revealed by Kmart’s website. The listing and description is all wrong, and I’m sure will be either corrected or taken down, but at least we have a chance to see some long-awaited pictures, so let’s take a look! 😛
We have first seen the headquarters of the LEGO Legends of Chima crocodile tribe in the LEGO Legends of Chima TV series. Below is a picture of how it looks like on the outside; dark, menacing… and swampy.
I have to say I’m quite pleased with the LEGO Legends of Chima Croc Swamp Hideout set. From what I can see on the pictures the colors are great and there are lots of play-features. In fact this is the first LEGO Legends of Chima set I’m really interested in. Although I wish it was a bit more swampy. I live in the swamps myself, down in Florida’s gatorland, so I know exactly how gator-infested swamps look like. A bit more vegetation and roots would make the Croc Swamp Hideout more organic and less industrial-looking, but such details can certainly be added by Chima fans themselves.
Here is the Croc Swamp Hideout from another angle, showing off the giant crocodile head with its open mouth and scary teeth. (You can click on the images for a larger view.)
The LEGO Legend of Chima Croc Swamp Hideout includes 647 pieces and 5 minifigures: Crominus, Cragger, Crug, Lennox, and Leonidas. I’m quite surprised that Cragger’s sister Crooler is not included with her magic flower that she used to keep her brother under evil influence. Price should be around $60, if I remember correctly.
The #70014 LEGO Legends of Chima Croc Swamp Hideout should be available with the next wave of LEGO Legends of Chima sets. For currently available sets you can check out the Online LEGO Shop.
