Legends of Chima hits the shelves early
The official release date for Legends of Chima, in the UK at least, is 26th December, and it's been noticed that some branches of Toys R Us have already started getting displays ready for the launch. However, some shops have started selling them early, including John Lewis and my local branch of Smyths. Why, then, haven't we started posting reviews and images already? Well, LEGO has sent us some sets to review and requested that we don't publish until Boxing Day, so expect a flurry of activity then, both here and at other sites.
In the meantime, to whet your appetite, here are scans of the pages of the instructions of 70000, that I bought yesterday, showing five of the six tribes that are at war. In the blue (good) corner we have lions and eagles, and in the red (bad) corner we have crocodiles, ravens and wolves. It's interesting that the good side does not show gorillas, which are mentioned in the Toy News article. I can only surmise that they are going to appear later in the year, maybe coming to the rescue or something.
