The Croc Swamp Hideout

This image of one of the summer LoC sets we didn't have a picture for, has been found by grogall and posted on Eurobricks, along with a few others.

So even their hideout looks like a croc's mouth :-) Note that there are no new minifigs in this set.

The Croc Swamp Hideout is awesome.

Looks cool, my kid's gonna want it badly. Wish it was a bit bigger though--1000 pieces maybe.

Why bother introducing all the new fractions like gorillas and skunks and such if they aren't actually going to be in sets?

^ No worries, this theme will be around for a couple of years, there is time to introduce them. While it's simple, I like the crane/prison part on the left, for some reason.

Well, it is called croc hideout so it makes sense to be made that way. Just add Killer Croc from Batman.

Great set, disappointing figures.

When I read the title, I thought it was a Batman set.
I'm so sad now :(

^Yeah, it's just... *can't say the Bad Word* It's just... *still can't say It* Ch- Chi- ma! Chima. *Everybody gasps at lego613master's saying of the Unspoken Word*
(I don't like Chima ;()

I think it would make more sense to have all the main fractions out, besides in spinners and a mech set, and then go back and have a base for the crocs. They have the boat, they don't need a base this year too.

That set looks so cool. Why are there no new crocodiles!!!!!!!! :( I've been waiting for more and lets face it, who doesn't have cragger or crominus now?

^ As did I, surely we will get a Killer Croc Minifigure eventually? (Along with several other villains who are strangely absent as of yet...)

I knew they were going to make this.

I think that the mini figure accessories are amazing! I mean, look at those awesome capes and awesome weapons! This set also seems to have a flick fire mechanism! In fact, it looks that there is no flicking in this set! it looks like it is all by something else pushing it! But there is one this that i am not a fan of with this set. A lot of bases these days are coming with cranes and hanging cages! its starting to get old. So change it up a bit please. But overall i think that the colors clash well together and this set looks like a great play toy. i hope behind the set, there is alot of room to put figs and create stories.

Are those 1x2 cheese slopes! OMG NEED THEM (look at front of boat where there are teeth.)

take away the figures and the boat and you have got your self a killer crock base temporarily

This is a killer set! I love the minifigs to:)

Not bad, the figures are horrible, IMO, but if I see it on sale I think I'd pick it up since the set looks pretty decent, as well as the parts included.

Anyone thinks we've been seeing Leonidas far too often? This is exactly the same with the Crawley's claw ripper. Why, they didn't even bother changing his weapon!

^ Agreed. Lennox too.

1 I'm glad lego is reïntroducing the baseplate again, and this time it's more widespread. Compared to Sentai Fortress (2006), the Temple of Altantis (2011) and the Fire Temple (2011), this is a good thing.

2 When I saw it in the show I knew they were going to make a set of that base. Still, why didn't they throw that crocodile queen in it? This would be the perfect set for her to appear in.

3 Excuse me EMOJICON, but which cages do you mean? I might have forgotton a more recent one, but the only ones I can think of are the bone cage on the Wizards tower (2007), the scorpion prison tower (2005) (similar build), the Viking ship (2005) (similar build), the 'cage' (more like a rope trap) on the troll warship (2008) and perhaps the cage on the mobile command rig (2009). Only two of those even look like this cage. Do you mean all of these?

4 Those dark brown wedge slopes used as 'manes' for the lion vehicle, are those new pieces?

5 Look, a secret sliding rock entrance on the right hand side! It looks like the playability will be allright after all.

In a way, yea. If you have found all of them, then i must have just been a fool to think that there were so few. I guess that they just stand out to me. I dont know why, but they just do. Also, i was being picky and looking for details that did not intrest me that much. I am glad you have pointed this fatel flaw of mine (being picky) and i will make sure not to let it happen again. in other words, i will stay on the bright side

You forgot the bone cage from POTC cannibal escape.

What base plates are being reintroduced? It looks like the base is just 3 16x16 plates and 1 8x16 plate.

Unappealing colours and no playable inside as far as I can tell. How is this even a hideout? Would that not make a statement in the middle of a swamp?

No new figs; come on! Lego's known to do better than that!

Great companion set for the Command Ship, except for the fact that the minifigures from BOTH SETS ARE THE SAME. Except for Crug, but he's not even exclusive. Jeez, who would want that much doubles, and it's going to be annoying for those who want to collect the Croc Tribe's sets. I'd take nameless crocodile guards over these same faces. Love the base, annoyed by the minifigures. >:(
