Legends of Chima Set Peek

The new 2013 theme, Legends of Chima, has had a set leak. Apparently this set was listed on Ebay. The listing was several months old. How did this happen? We have no idea. But my job isn't to find out HOW things got leaked as much as to show you the leaked images. Sneaky, I know. ;)
This set is 70113 (Notice the number change) Chi Battles and contains 442 pieces. The minifig in the below pic looks pretty cool. But so far, I'm disappointed.

Why am I disappointed? The reasons are simple.
1. This theme looks like a remake of Ninjago. And with Ninjago not even out of production yet, I have no idea why LEGO didn't wait two years before releasing this theme.
2. The game themes have never really appealed to me. Sure, they're fun for kids, but when it really comes down to it, the hype wears off really fast.
3: Game-based sets are always overpriced because of the expensive-to-make pieces. (Spinners for example)

So what do you think of the first look at Legends of Chime? Excited? Or, like me, disappointed?
Leave a comment and tell me your thoughts.

  1. I'm not overly impressed or excited about this. I'm a City fan so I wouldn't go for these sets anyway but, as you said, it looks like stuff that's already in production or very similar. I'm afraid it's a no from me.
