Ah, I was wondering when those'd show up here. Pretty neat, I like the shaping of the heads... the eagle head bothers me a bit; it's mostly okay, except for the wing-ear things.

Good point. I looks a bit more falcon-ish. If they made it in red they could make a minifig of Furno 3.0 from Hero Factory. :P

Wow. Those heads are awesome, and toe printing. I can't remember the last minifig I saw with toe printing was. Very nice find Aanchir! Also, since you are the expert on LEGO colors, what color is the eagle's head?

Well, the official release date in France. Sets show up at different times worldwide. For instance, Galaxy Squad sets have already started showing up in some parts of Canada.

Spoiler
I'm not sure if I'd be able to link to the high res images of the Chima sets here, but they technically are official. I'll check BZPower's spoiler policy again, but the majority of them are on The Chima Wiki, because they cleared TCW's spoiler policy.

LEGO has confirmed the gorilla tribe! We still don't have character names for them, however.LEGO also has confirmed Chima constraction sets and Chima board games for late 2013.And Chima is predicted to do better than Ninjago. That's nice. :)

oh i hadn't seen the topic for this before

 

huh

 

anyway

 

totally stoked for these, even though i only want two or three sets. the eagle jet especially. the birds and their vehicles are the real highlights of this theme, IMO. honestly, i think the lions look kind of dumb =/ it's the hair, methinks.

 

but still, the line as a whole looks really fantastic. can't wait to get me some Chima =D

Wow, those books look like nice! They're going to be written by Greg, right? 

Well, the starter handbook is written by Tracey West, an author who mostly writes novelizations and other licensed books (he's written Pokémon novelizations, for instance). I don't have the highest opinion of his writing, but that's OK because really this is just a handbook, and chances are it'll be chock-full of illustrations that more than justify its cost (plus, free poster).The other books are most likely written by Greg, since we know that he's writing for some new 2013 theme, and Chima is the only one we know to be getting a major multimedia push like Ninjago and BIONICLE had previously.

[color=#1d1d4b;]Chima looks promising. It looks like a series that will have a fair amount of awesome sets, but also a lot that are mediocre so I won't need to strain my wallet any more than necessary. Which is maybe not good?Like I said on the TV show discussion, I think the lions have stupid faces, but only because they have stupidfaces. I don't think it's the hair. They just kind of suck. That removes the incentive to buy quite a few sets, so that's good. (It's just a shame that most of the lion themed sets also have crocodiles, who are AWESOME)The wolves look just okay. The crocs are fantastic but mostly come with lions so what do. (Buy the large boat, is what. Or I would, if I thought I could spare the money for it.)What really interests me are the eagles and crows. Birds are awesome, and these are some awesome minifigures that actually look like extra epic versions of animals. (Unlike the lions, who, again, look stupid) Also their vehicles kick tailfeathers. And the crows are basically pirates, so yeah, they're awesome. I'm planning on buying basically all of them. (Except ones with land vehicles. Why they would give a land vehicle to an eagle is beyond me.)I wish there were more female furrypeople though. (For gender equality, not, a furry thing) I think there's only one of two from the few pictures on the eBay? And it's just an eagle, which is cool because eagles, but still. [/color]

There's at least one female eagle (might be two, since there's one we haven't seen any really good pictures of) and one female crocodile in the first wave. There might be more female characters in future waves, though personally I'm not going to be too demanding because this theme has already got more diversity of female characters than the typical play theme.

Eris is the female eagle I know of, and Crooler is the female crocodile. I'm sure there are more. I just haven't looked as closely.

 

Also, they are ravens. Not crows. Similar, I know, but still. ;)

[color=#1b4d1b;]I got the Jan/Feb 2013 LEGO CLub magazine. In addition to a cool poster that folds out of the cover, there was a LoChima comic. It has some bios that provide new info. Time will tell how accurate it is, but basically:-Eris thinks she's funny. She isn't that funny.-Laval used to be best friends with Cragger. The crocodiles are the ones who turned eeveel.-Razar is a haggler and a thief. Apparently the ravens only joined the crocs because they were offered lots of Chi, but they'd consider turning sides if the lions offered more.-Worriz is a terrible person and plans to betray Cragger. Also he is apparently a cannibal. (His quote is "I like lions, I really do. They're...delicious")-Cragger took control of the crocodile tribe after his parents disappeared. Crooler is his twin sister.Again not too sure if that's all true. Crominus looks to be the real croc leader, but this says Cragger so idek. Other than that it all makes sense. [/color]

Hey guys just a heads up:

 

Go to a LEGO Brand Store on January 16th and attend the LEGO Club Meeting, and you'll receiver a free Chima poster, Chima T-shirt, and participate in a Speedor competition. (While supplies last)

I'm thinking that Cragger will usurp Crominus at some point, ala Skales and Slithraa, but you never know.

I don't think so actually. Crominus has been leading the tribe for a long time, seeing as he was the one who wanted control over the chi and originally started the war against the lion tribe way back when. I'm actually thinking that Cragger is a prince/Crominus's son.

Chima website is now live. Bios of note:

 

 

Crominus is the Crocodile King and Cragger's father. His wife is Queen Crunket. A tough and fiercely-protective leader, Crominus could not stand the Lions but he always respected them. Unlike his son, Crominus ruled with logic and common sense, instead of emotion. He realized that fighting always hurts BOTH sides. He was by no means a pacifist, but he was definitely more pragmatic than his hot-headed son.

 

 

 

Cragger was always an extremely-competitive kid. He lived for the rush of victory. Laval actually liked that about him when they first met, and the two became best friends at a very young age. At the time, both cared only about adventure, fun, and the occasional prank. Cragger challenged Laval’s Lion sense of propriety, and Laval had a way of getting Cragger to laugh at himself – no small feat given Cragger’s oversized ego. But everything changed when Cragger had his first taste of Chi. There are strict rules about how old one must be to use Chi, and Cragger was far too young to handle its awesome power. For Cragger, Chi gave him that sense of ultimate power he had always been seeking. He never completely recovered from the experience. This was the beginning of the end for Laval and Cragger, as well as Chima’s thousand-year Age of Peace.

 

Video trailer also reveals a rhino minifig. Rhino tribe appearance?

[font="verdana, geneva, sans-serif;"][color=#808080;]You don't know how much I'd want that.[/color][/font]

[font="verdana, geneva, sans-serif;"][color=#808080;]However, I have the feeling that there'll just be a lot of other animal tribes as background characters that don't make it into sets, like in Thundercats.[/color][/font]

 

[font="verdana, geneva, sans-serif;"][color=#808080;]Hmm. Just watched the music video (can't say I like it very much) and I was pleasantly surprised to see a significant appearance by the gorillas. [/color][/font]

There are also bears.

 

Also Laval and Cragger were friends. That's so adorable.

 

Here's your Rhinos in HD if you guys missed.
