LEGO Chima Mammoth’s Frozen Stronghold Summer 2015 Set!

LEGO Chima Summer 2015 Sets Mammoth's Frozen Stronghold

I’ve been talking about the LEGO Legends of Chima theme since months before the first sets were released, so it feels weird knowing this is the last time I’ll ever talk about an upcoming Chima set again (barring some unforeseen miracle resurrection for theme). I previously discussed the other two summer Chima sets that I saw at the New York Toy Fair 2015, and now it’s time to move on to the last of the trio (and Chima itself): the LEGO Chima Mammoth’s Frozen Stronghold 70226 set!

Free LEGO Chima Ice Bear Mech Promo Set Released!

LEGO Chima Iceklaw's Mech 30256 Promo Set Free 2015

Way back in December 2014 (which feels like a lot longer than three months ago), some collectors started finding a new LEGO Ice Bear Mech polybag set at Target stores. I searched hard and long for that set for months, but it never got wide distribution–and I was seriously beginning to doubt that it ever would.

But rejoice, fellow Ice Bear Mech hunters–it’s back! The LEGO Iceklaw’s Mech 30256 set is free at Toys R Us stores this week!

All good things must come to an end, and as sad as it is, that includes the LEGO Legends of Chima theme, which will be ending abruptly with the summer 2015 LEGO Chima sets.

I had the opportunity to check out all three of the final sets at New York Toy Fair 2015 this weekend, and I’ll begin covering them with the set that interested me most: the first-ever Chima Bear Tribe vehicle, LEGO Bladvic’s Rumble Bear 70225!

LEGO Chima 2015 Vultrix’s Sky Scavenger Set Revealed & Photos!

LEGO 70228 Vultrix's Sky Scavenger Set Box

There’s a lot of doom and gloom swirling about in LEGO Legends of Chima fandom, as rumors have begun that 2015 could be the last year for the quasi-beloved LEGO Chima theme. Chima has been one of my surprise favorite LEGO themes since its introduction, so I would be very heartbroken to see it go if the rumors are true. That said, if we are approaching the end of LEGO Legends of Chima, you wouldn’t know it by the sheer number of new sets coming in January 2015–and another one has just been revealed: it’s the LEGO Chima Vultrix’s Sky Scavenger 70228!

Target Exclusive LEGO Minifigures Set! LEGO Superboy!

LEGO Superboy Minifigure from Target Exclusive Minifigures Set

I mentioned last week that making several trips to Target is part of my daily routine since a new Target store opened up a 90 second drive from my apartment. Today was one of those days that a short drive to reach the store paid off, as I was careless on my first trip in and only took a cursory walk past the aisle. The joke was on me, as Target had an unexpected promo that I had to go back for (after it was sold out)–the Target Exclusive LEGO Minifigures set, containing a LEGO Superboy minifigure and three other figures! It’s already selling online for $40-$50, so if you want this set free, now is the time to hit Target!

LEGO Chima Frax’ Phoenix Flyer 30264 Polybag Released!

LEGO Chima Frax' Phoenix Flyer 30264 Polybag Released

One of the big mysteries about the LEGO Legends of Chima 2014 sets lineup has been when and where (and if) the LEGO Chima Frax’ Phoenix Flyer 30264 set would be available in the United States. While the set was released internationally in the summer, US LEGO fans have been one Phoenix Tribe minifigure short for months. But finally, Christmas has come–literally! The 30264 LEGO Frax’ Phoenix Flyer polybag has now been released in the stocking stuffer section!

LEGO Chima 2015 Sets Tiger’s Mobile Command 70224 Revealed!

LEGO Chima Tiger's Mobile Command 70224 Box

When word broke that LEGO was continuing the LEGO Legends of Chima Fire vs. Ice theme into 2015, a lot of Chima fans seemed dismayed by the idea of LEGO trying to drag the theme out for another wave. Of course, that was before all the LEGO Chima fan boys (and girls!) out there got to see all the fresh and exciting things LEGO has lined up for the Winter 2014 LEGO Chima sets. I was psyched already when I thought that the LEGO Chima Tiger’s Mobile Command 70224 set was just the first Tiger Tribe vehicle–and then I discovered that the set also includes the first-ever LEGO Chima BEAVER TRIBE minifigure…

Disney Princesses and race cars and ninjas are awesome and all, but now it’s time to start talking about the 2015 entries for one of my absolute favorite LEGO themes–the LEGO Legends of Chima 2015 sets have now been revealed! The leaked list of LEGO Chima 2015 sets posted last month was right on the money–there’s no sets at all coming that we didn’t know about. But while we’d heard of all the new sets already, that’s nothing compared to seeing them! Case in point: the 2015 LEGO Chima Flinx’s Ultimate Phoenix 70221!

LEGO Chima Worriz’ Fire Bike 30265 Review & Photos

LEGO Legends of Chima 30265 Worriz' Fire Bike Released

Well, this was unlikely. Ordinarily, you wouldn’t expect a LEGO polybag set that’s been given away at the LEGO Store for two consecutive months to show up for sale at mass retail. So when someone messaged me to let me know that they’d found the 30265 LEGO Legends of Chima Worriz’ Fire Bike set at their local Target store, I thought maybe it was a freak accident shipment. Nope! I strolled into Target this week and found a ton of LEGO Worriz’ Fire Bike 30265 sets myself. And since they were right in front of me, I couldn’t resist picking up an extra to review…

LEGO Chima 2015 Sets List Revealed! Bears! (Winter 2015)

One of my personal favorite LEGO themes will be entering its third year in 2015, and LEGO has some great things planned to celebrate the event! Though the LEGO Legends of Chima theme met with a lot of harsh opposition to begin with (especially from those who felt like it was going to replace LEGO Ninjago), LEGO Chima has persevered. And LEGO has some big things planned for the third year of LEGO Legends of Chima, as the LEGO Chima 2015 sets will include the first-ever Tiger Tribe vehicle, long-demanded Tribe Minifigure Packs and the much-anticipated debut of Chima Bear Tribe Minifigures!

Summer 2014 LEGO Chima Sets Released in the United States!

LEGO Legends of Chima Summer 2014 Sets Released

Last week I made a mega-post chronicling my discovery of every one of the LEGO Star Wars Summer 2014 sets at my local LEGO Store. But, well… that wasn’t all I found, and it also wasn’t what I spent most of my money on during that trip.

With a huge smile etched on my face, I got to check out (and photograph!) the entirety of the LEGO Legends of Chima Summer 2014 sets wave…

LEGO Legends of Chima Season 1 Part 2 DVD Review

LEGO Legends of Chima Season 1 Part 2 DVD Set Review

Given the amount of love and coverage I give to the LEGO Legends of Chima toys, you might assume that I’m an avid follower of the LEGO Chima TV series and have watched every episode over and over. That is not the case. In fact, up until this month, I’d seen exactly zero episodes of the LEGO Legends of Chima cartoon. Nothing against the show–I just don’t watch a lot of TV. But Warner Bros. was kind enough to send me a review copy of the LEGO Legends of Chima Season 1 Part 2 DVD set, so I spent four hour this weekend on a LEGO Chima cartoon bender. The Chima DVD set is on sale for 35% off at Amazon for $12.99–is it worth your 13 bucks? Read on…

LEGOLand Chicago Photos & LEGO Chima 30266 Polybag!

Last week I was half-pleased and half-irritated that the first of the 2014 LEGO Chima Summer Sets had arrived in the United States. While I was glad to finally see a new Chima set showing up, I was bummed it was only sighted at the LEGOLand Discovery Center Stores in Florida, California and Illinois.

But destiny was on my side this time, as my wife was on a trip this week in the Midwest and stopped at LEGOLand Chicago for me…
