    Toy Fair 2014: Legends of Chima
    Hot Bionicle NewsTuesday, February 18th, 2014 at 8:27pm by Andrew, BZPower News Manager

    On the road along our Toy Fair 2014 coverage we're making a stop at Chima-town. Legends of Chima is back with two waves of sets introducing a whole bunch of new animals. There's lots of interesting sets and pieces, so you should read on to find out what we've got in store!

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 01

    Winter Sets

    70123 Lion Legend Beast

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 02

    120 pieces. Age 7+.
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    There's no Chima constraction sets this year, but instead we get these Legend animals. They make heavy use of the new small ball-joints, which is pretty cool. The lion is well-designed and makes good use of tan and brown slopes.

    70124 Eagle Legend Beast

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 03

    104 pieces. Age 7+.
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    The eagle doesn't seem quite as neat, personally. It does include lots of Exo-Force arms and some of the newer big wings. Otherwise it seems fairly unremarkable.

    70125 Gorilla Legend Beast

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 04

    106 pieces. Age 7+.
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    I like the gorilla, which incorporates both the new and old ball joints to good effect. My one complaint would be the grey is a bit jarring.

    70126 Crocodile Legend Beast

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 05

    121 pieces. Age 7+.
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    The crocodile doesn't seem to have as much poseability as some of the other Legends animals, but it captures the shape well and features lots of olive pieces, which is always a good thing.

    70127 Wolf Legend Beast

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 06

    110 pieces. Age 7+.
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    The wolf is just great, using the new ball joints to excellently and giving the set a wide rang of motion. It also features a lot of useful white curved slopes.

    70128 Braptor's Wing Striker

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 13

    146 pieces. Age 7+.
    $14.99 (USD) $17.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    Any set that gives us more purple pieces is a good one in my book, although aside from that I don't find too much in this set compelling. Like many of the Chima figs, the bat helmet is pretty cool.

    70129 Lavertus' Twin Blade

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 14

    183 pieces. Age 8+.
    $19.99 (USD) $24.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    I really like the scorpion fig in this set and think it's a good addition to the Chima selection of animals. The vehicle has a cool action feature to make the blades spin and also manages to capture a decent-looking lion head on the front.

    70130 Sparratus' Spider Stalker

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 15 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 16

    292 pieces. Age 8+.
    $24.99 (USD) $29.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    I just love how the gorilla tribe uses bananas as weapons - thank you Mark Stafford (even if you did kill teal). The spider is obviously the highlight here though, and does a good job mixing playability with design; the set looks cool but also looks fun to play with!

    70131 Rogon's Rock Flinger

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 17

    257 pieces. Age 8+.
    $29.99 (USD) $39.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    I wasn't overly-enthused with this set. It certainly looks like a solid build and I like the rhino head on the front (and the rhino figs), but I don't see the value compared to the two above sets.

    70132 Scorm's Scorpion Stinger

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 18

    434 pieces. Age 8+.
    $39.99 (USD) $49.99 (CAD)
    Available in March

    The scorpion actually reminds me a bit of the Nui Jaga from all those years ago, except with a Thornax launcher and plenty of extra ammo. It's definitely a cool-looking set although I don't see myself picking it up.

    Summer Sets

    70141 Vardy's Ice Vulture Glider

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 24 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 25 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 26

    217 pieces. Age 7+.
    $19.99 (USD) $24.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    The theme for the summer looks to be 'fire and ice' which is definitely well-represented in these sets. I like the new tiger and vulture head pieces we see here. The vulture isn't all that impressive, but I do like the new trans-light blue leg pieces that we also saw in the Hero Factory queen set.

    70142 Eris' Fire Eagle Flyer

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 30 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 31

    330 pieces. Age 8+.
    $29.99 (USD) $39.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    I think the eagle totally one-ups the vulture and looks a lot cooler. Plus, we have a new sabertooth tiger fig, coming out of the ice and complete with a giant paw for a club.

    70143 Sir Fangar's Sabre Tooth Walker

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 27 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 28 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 29

    415 pieces. Age 8+.
    $39.99 (USD) $49.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    Okay, I know this set is supposed to be a sabertooth tiger, but when I first looked at it I thought it was a beaver with no tail. Other than that, lots of trans-light blue pieces and even some Hero Factory make this a useful set. There's also a trike that pops off the back, although it leaves the main vehicle looking pretty empty.

    70144 Laval's Fire Lion

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 37 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 38

    450 pieces. Age 8+.
    $49.99 (USD) $59.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    The lion is definitely cool, and I always like to see things with treads. Still, the giant mammoth fig totally steals the show and just looks awesome.

    70145 Maula's Ice Mammoth Stomper

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 32 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 33 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 34 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 35 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 36

    604 pieces. Age 8+.
    $89.99 (USD) $109.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    This is definitely my favorite Chima set from this year. It's a mechanical oliphaunt! The brown and the trans-light blue works well, and I enjoyed seeing the Hero Factory chest armor on the head. Plus, those two big round things on the sides are actually part of a vehicle that detaches and flies off. And check out those minifigs - they have transparent arms and legs! It's definitely an impressive set and has a wide variety of cool parts.

    70146 Flying Phoenix Fire Temple

    Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 39 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 40 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 41 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 42 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 43 Toy Fair 2014 Legends of Chima 44

    1,301 pieces. Age 9+.
    $119.99 (USD) $139.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    The fire temple is a cool set but to me doesn't seem like it's worth $120. The vehicle that comes with it is cool, but I think the mammoth is even better, personally. There is a lot of tan in this set - so it's a good source for parts if that's what you're looking for. I also dig the phoenix figure and its detailed robe.

    Speedorz Sets

    I don't really have much to say about these sets. They tend to have some cool pieces but, due to the inclusion of the Speedorz piece, cost more than you might expect. Unless you're a fan of playing with these guys, your money is probably better spent elsewhere.

    70136 Banana Bash
