Legends of Chima magazine out in Europe

Posted by ,

A new kids' magazine has been launched this week in parts of Europe including the UK and Poland. It has a free Ewar minifig on the cover. I haven't seen it myself yet but I'm just off to WHS to see if I can find one. The price, in the UK, is £3.25.

Is it available in your country as well?

Thanks to BrickFanatics for the news and image.

Update: I have a copy, from Tesco. The text on the back of the bag the figure comes in suggests that it's available in UK, Germany, France, Poland, Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Ukraine.

The minifig is a 'genuine' one, but is different to that shown on the packet: it has silver armour shoulder pads and not gold. This makes it a unique figure.

Don't know if it is an "old news": at the German site of "Blue Ocean" they say that there also will be a monthly "Friends" magazine from summer 2014 on.

I've just picked one up from WH Smiths in Sheffield city centre. There was only one copy. Cover date is 6th Nov - 3rd Dec so it's likely to be restocked for the rest of the month. A friend of mine also saw it in the CO-OP this morning. Model number is LOC 1-13

Does the bag have a set number?

Nope - not that I can see without opening it.

^^ No, just the number Kiveton has quoted. It's sealed with a adhesive strip and can be resealed. Whether you'd call it a 'polybag' for the purposes of your collection, I don't know :-)

In WHS in York, there must have been at least 24 of these on the shelf.

My Local WHS had none but Sainsbury's did I picked up 4. So if anyone wants to trade for one then I'm open to offers.

It is indeed available in Germany, and very similar to the Ninjago magazines that came out last year.

Will these magazines be added to the database? They contain a figure after all.

Wow, they can actually fill a whole magazine with Chima related content?! I think a ninjago one may have done better

Huw, could you grab a pic of what the accessories for the fig to make the 'exclusive eagle cannon' are?

@brix: There WAS a Ninjago magazine in Germany. It might even still be going for all I know, but I doubt it since Ninjago had a decreased media profile this year.

I found them in my local post office this morning, and yep it said Razcal was available with the next issue. Hopefully some other figures come with future issues.

What kind of stuff is in the magazine?

By in United Kingdom,

Yes I've just got a copy, inside there's a cartoon story, games, double sided Laval & Eris poster, run down on the main characters and all the lions and other features

Picked my copy up from WH Smiths and I think it's a good value for money magazine. On the last page it shows what will be in next months issue and it's another double sided poster and a raven minifigure.

The German Ninjago Magazine was discontinued around the time the theme was (before the reboot was announced).

Each issue included a minifig similar to the Chima Magazine, although the last few issues repeated the first couple of figs with different weapons (and in polybags instead of blister packs).

A note of warning to anyone who is keeping their figure 'mint-in-pack'....just check that you have all the necessary pieces. I picked up a copy from my local Tesco yesterday. When I got home I found that the packet contained no torso, legs or helmet...just the head from the figure itsef, but there were two sets of pieces for the weadpon and an extra wing. I'm just back from exchanging the magazine at the store, only to find that this second is figure also incomplete. This time I got 3 heads, 2 torsos and a helmet but no legs and only one wing and wing clip. Also most of the parts for the weapon were also missing.
This may be just a bad batch but it seems that each packet has pretty much the right number of parts, just not necessarily the right ones!

hurrah Morrisons in Clevedon had several copies.. but guess who forgot his pocket money..

I will echo the comment above about tesco - bought one for my son as a reward for being really good when his little
Sister ended up in hospital - excited to open the bag only to find four wings, no head, torso, legs, head, helmet or gold parts! Understandably gutted - I have just emailed the publishers though as cant face keep swapping until find one that is right!

I got mine today in Watford WHS - all parts present in the correct numbers. Perhaps it was Tesco who got the bad batch?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Third time. Not lucky! This time I got two heads, two torsos and two sets of legs. Unfortunately only one wing, no helmet, no armour and none of the gold weapon parts. Patience is dwindling.....even if I'd kept all three packs I'd still only have enough parts to construct one complete figure!

Due to reason for purchase I caved and bought a second one for my son from tesco (partly because of the offer of getting the mag half price if you bought the sun) but had a good feel of the bag before paying to confirm head, torso, legs, helmet and axe blade gun bit were all present - he went to bed a slightly happier boy! Still hope get a positive response from the publisher over the next couple of days though!

By in United Kingdom,

The ones from WH are fine. It just must be Tesco. With that batch the Packaging machine might have just got confused!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Got mine from Tesco all parts there...... but one massive problem the chest plate element is battle ship grey and not gold as picture shows..... but for £3.25 cant really complain plus my son loves the mag too
also notice at the bottom of the packet on the back it says this is 1 of 13. fingers cross for a gorzan in future

Any of our US friends require one get in contact with me

Just picked the mag up today from tesco in middleton, manchester and it was half price if you bought the sun newspaper. So i saved £1.63 on the mag. Bargain if i do say so myself!!!

Bought two from WHS in Bradford. One was fine the other missing legs and helmet. E mailed the publisher

By in United Kingdom,

Bought mine 1/2 price from Tesco Bulwell, all parts present and correct.

Is this just anti-Tesco bad press or maybe somebody in your area is deliberately messing up the parts in your Tesco stores?

Another messed up one from Tesco - no head or legs but 4 helmets, 5 wings and 3 armour pieces. The bag was unopened when I picked it up so it looks like a bad batch for Tesco.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Got mine. From Sainsburys local, so it's not confined to one shop. Two sets of legs, 5 wings, no chest plate, so have emailed publisher. I'm sure their inbox will be full very soon.

Think they could have got this part done correctly as it seems they don't want this line to fail.

If anyone overseas wants one let me know as I may need to go buy another or two

Available in Tesco in Ireland. I got mine and I was suprised that the price was the same in Euro as it is in GBP, 3.25. So I got two, why not. Plus clubcard points too ;-)
