Brickmaster: Legends of Chima The Quest for Chi
Like previously published Brickmasters, it's a very fat book that has a thick front cover with a box containing LEGO parts inside. The actual book part of this one is longer than recent ones, at 96 pages, compared to the usual 40 or 50.
Inside the book is the usual mix of instructions to build models from the parts -- six pairs in this case -- and stories around the models which take the form of photo-strips. The minifigs it contains are two of Chima's main characters, Crawley and Lennox.
There's something interesting about it for polybag collectors...
The parts (photo of the BoM here) are packaged in a 'proper' LEGO bag...
...that has a set number, which will make it a must-but for polybag obsessives :-)
This is a typical page from the book, which illustrates the quality of the photo-strips and models.
The models are built in pairs, one for the lion and one for the croc, and once built enable the associated story to be re-enacted. They tend to be a vehicle for one and a temple or hideout for the other.
It's a very polished production and one that Chima fans will love and get a lot of play value from.
As usual, you can order it from Amazon and in doing so help keep Brickset online.
