So here a question to anyone in North America. Do anyone have gotten the 2014 Chima Ultrabuild and how did you get it (bet some will say ebay and BZP ) With me I have gotten one of them that is the Chi Cragger and I gotten it on ebay (sadly I don't have a picture to show you because I took it apart but I do have a review of the set on my youtube channel)
As the title asks, which Chima characters do you think would be great as constraction figures? They don't have to be potential future sets, so even minor characters or non-set characters from 2013 would be OK. It can even be an alternate costume of a character who's already been a constraction set, though keep in mind that the costumes, weapons, and color schemes of the constraction models rarely match the corresponding minifigures. From last year's characters, I would love to see a Windra constraction model. Worriz's head piece is not specifically gendered, so it could easily be recolored and printed without facial scars (and maybe even with eyelashes) to represent Windra. Also, her color scheme (same as the Wolf Legend Beast) is awesome! Crug would also be amazing, since his color scheme is so different from the other crocodiles. He could use a brown Cragger head with a silver jaw, and he could use the brown paw pieces from Ogrum as muscular shoulders. Lagravis would be another great character. He's a major character with a color scheme distinct from Laval, the other lion character who has appeared as a constraction set. G'Loona would be fun as a "child" character. But at the same time, a child character wouldn't make a whole lot of sense from a story perspective, since characters like G'Loona, Skinnet, and Wonald are not old enough to use CHI, and the constraction sets are ostensibly supposed to represent the characters' CHI-enhanced forms. Among 2013 characters, it would be great to see the spider tribe leader Spinlyn and the scorpion tribe leader Scorm. Sparacon and Scutter are also interesting spider and scorpion figs, but their story importance is not quite so great, and also I like the idea of one tribe's fig being bipedal while the other has multiple legs. Spinlyn is also a female character, which is great for diversity's sake. A bat like Blista would be cool but not nearly so unique, since there are so many Chima characters with wings. Still, if there were a constraction wave based on this year's first wave, you'd probably want him to complete the villain trifecta. All three could use Tr. Bright Green weapons instead of Tr. Blue or Tr. Red weapons like last year's heroes and villains. Post your own suggestions and how you think they might be able to be designed!
Along with LEGO Friends pics and some LEGO City pics, high-res pictures for the upcoming Legends of Chima constraction sets were recently put on cache.LEGO.com:70200 CHI LavalPackage70201 CHI ErisPackage70202 CHI GorzanPackage70203 CHI CraggerPackage70204 CHI WorrizPackage70205 CHI RazarPackageEach set will cost $14.99 USD, and each set has between 55 and 68 pieces.What are your thoughts? Overall, I'm very impressed. The models are cohesive, well-armored (at least half of the figures have back armor, and only Cragger has any armorless limb beams, which he uses for stylistic reasons), well-armed (none of the sets use a paw/claw as a substitute for a weapon, and all those with paws have fingers to hold their weapons), and imaginative. Naturally a lot of this detail comes at a cost -- they're a bit pricier than a typical medium-sized Hero Factory figure -- but in my opinion it's well worth it.
