2014 Chima sets to feature scorpions and spiders

Posted by ,

I might be a bit late with this news, excuse me if so. This picture of a forthcoming Chima storybook shows a scorpion and what is said to be a spider in the background. The Brick Fan has published an article showing how the scorpion might be made.

So, as I'm only up to episode 3 of the cartoon, what other species have featured in it so far and are thus likely to make an appearance in sets next year? Rhinos I've seen; is there anything else?

(Thanks legozebra for the tip-off).

Well, then... seems to be a rather... interesting?... development for Chima...

Wow...That 'Scorpion' looks awesome. With the expansion of the Chima tribes, or however they're referred to, I might have to give the Chima line a second look.

These look great,looks like i'll have to start saving soon.
i hope the scorpions come in lots of sets.

As far as I can tell, that scorpion is the best looking Chima figure to date. That headpiece is amazing! I will definitely look into some of them. The rest of the story I have not been following. I'm only in it for cool new pieces. The spider head might be okay. It looks like multiple eyes on it.

I do find it odd that all of these "jungle" animals would now have larger than life arachnids to battle with. But I guess variety is good.

Awesome! Can't wait to see the sets now!

Scorpions and spiders?! This is just what I needed to get pulled into the Chima line! Cant wait!

Predator!! (Does it come with Arnold and Danny minifigures?)

Up till now not into Chima myself but I definitely see a great opportunity for polishing up an old LEGO Space theme after we've gotten this year's rehash of the 1998 Insectoids theme: 'UFO II'!

So so far we have:
Eagles, ravens, crocs, lions, wolves, gorillas, beavers, foxes, skunks, rhinos, bears, spiders, scorpions and a peacock! Wow...

The spider looks weird to say the least.

The spider is horrible to say the least.

We need actual sets with skunks and foxes because they look amazing but I'm not spending $15 on a mini figure.

We love Chima here, but this is a bit much. Bears, beavers, and rhinos aren't even out yet, the fox isn't in the US either, and now scorpions and spiders!? Maybe I would feel differently if wave 2 this year hadn't featured so many redundant minifigs. But ok, we'll wait and see. Maybe the spider/scorpion non-vehicle sets will be superb. Or maybe they'll just be tossed in with Speedor set umpteen-hundred. Do Lennox, Leonidas, Laval, and Lagravis all need individual Speedor sets? I think not.

Aw man! I wanted to find out what the scorpions and spiders looked like in 2014! I really hate spoilers :(

@gingerlad and @The Green Brick Giant, am I the only one who likes the spiders? Their extra arms will probably be made the same way as Docter Ock's arms from the Spider-Man sets, and I can't think of a way to make the spiders have eight arms wihout making them look bad.

@Brickarmor, IMO, there should be MORE tribes! Also Laval and Lagravis have Speedorz in the show. And 3/4 of Chima's population probably have speedorz. And I thought Speedor sets were for the game, not the figure, if they were for the figure/having more speedorz, what would be the point of the 70-100 piece challenges?

@Huw, all the tribes are: lions, crocs, eagles, wolves, gorillas, ravens, skunks, foxes, bears, rhinos, beavers, peacocks, scorpions, spiders, and most likely bats. (<---Chima nerd here :-P)

And anybody who's worried about the fox being avalible in the US, it's listed in the september catolog and the Chima product page. Which means it will probably going to be released soon.

Well there are beavers and a knight that has yet to appear in the sets.

^^ i like the spiders and i think it's a good thing to have more tribes,
i hope they make a dragon tribe and a phoenix tribe.

70128 has a bear in it.
Also the LoC MMOG has a bear

Gravatar
By in United States,

^It probably has bat, where else would the 'WING Striker' part come from?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^^There is a speedorz set called bat strike so it's most likely that is has a bat.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

^^Even though I agree: the wolves have a helicopter, so I wouldn't rule a plane entirly out for the bears. But since there will also be Bat Strike (70137), bats are the better explanation!

Side note here:

Please, PLEASE, don't skip on publishing something just because it's late or "everywhere." I don't go everywhere nor do I want to. I go one place for my Lego news, so if it's not here - I miss it.

I feel that yet another pair of tribes is a bit much - it does add to the complexity, but I almost wish that they would spend more time developing the existing tribes before they added new ones.

Despite this, I'm especially interested to see the 2014 Speedor lineup. How they're going to integrate Scorpions and Spiders into the Speedorz is anyone's guess... Maybe they will come up with a new Speedor chassis mold.

@figura, I hadn't thought of that, it is entirely possible that will belong to the bears. Though if it does feature a bat, it looks like the 2014 wave will be fairly simalar to the first wave (not a bad thing though). I imagine the prices like this*:

70123-70127: $14.99
70128: $12.99
70129: $24.99
70130: $29.99
70131: $34.99
70132: $39.99
70133: $69.99
70134: $119.99
70136-70139: $14.99
70140: $19.99

*These prices aren't offical; just what I think they are.

These look pretty good.... Never thought id say about chima!

I like the idea of an entire line of animal-warrior-people... but I dislike having to buy expensive sets just for the little minifigures. I can't wait for the Bats next year, but I have to ask, Peacocks?

And is it selfish if I want to see some kangaroos or dingos or something?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Love the scorpion, but the spider... Yuk! How many tribes do there have to be?!

Gravatar
By in France,

How will they do for the peacocks ? Like foxes ?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I watched part of the show and the bear's name is Braptor.

^Do you recall which episode it was? If so we might know which tribe The Wing Striker belongs to.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^^I think it was Belcon, or Bladvic, or BOTH. Yup, it's BOTH. :P

I wish they would design animal mechas (something akin to Zoids). Imagine an AT-AT that looks like a rhino! This will be more interesting than vehicles.

Gravatar
By in United States,

guys lets at least look at the posibilety that that spider may be a bat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! spiders have EIGHT legs right, I do not fully belive it is a bat, I am just sugjesting it

Gravatar
By in United States,

^I'm pretty sure that LEGO would put wings on a bat. Also I can't think of a possible way to make the spiders have eight legs without making him look ugly.

@hermessiu, that's an... interesting idea I think that a rhino AT-AT (or AT-TE) would be cool, though I still want them make vehicles.

I'm following the tv show and i need to have some beavers and bears around my house.
I'm also pushing the peacocks as someone already underlined.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I looked at the 2014 set list. There are no crocs, eagles, ravens, or wolves :(

The only existing lion seems to be Lavertus, but I'm ecstatic about the legend beasts.

^That is because... MAJOR SPOILER AHEAD! ANYBODY WHO HASN'T SEEN EPISODE 16 SHOULD NOT LOOK!

Laval is BANISHED!!!!!! :-O
