Legends of Chima news
The microsite at LEGO.com went live today. It's only a teaser, but it has this and another image to, er, tease us with.
If you want to see the real thing, this eBay lot shows a great photo of Razcal from 70000 Razcal's Raven Glider, and this photo gallery shows most of the sets out of the box (unfortunately the images are still a bit on the small side). And finally, The Brick Show team has posted a video review of the Razcal minifig on YouTube.
It's getting exciting, isn't it... :-)
Update: I've added the out-of-box pictures to the database. They reveal a couple of things that weren't so obvious (to me anyway) on the box images:
- The vehicles are all made to look like animals: bird, eagle, lion, reptile, crocodile, wolf. The eagle looks great, but I'm not so sure about the others.
- The Speedorz are not pull-back motors as I had originally speculated, but seem to be powered by rip-cord. Presumably you hold them in your hand, insert cord, pull it out to set the wheel spinning, then put them onto the ground or table. Each set seems to make some sort of challenge: go through the fire ring, knock down the boulders, pass through the gates, etc. I guess it might be fun, and presumably the cards add an element of randomness to the gameplay. We'll have to wait and see...
