This will probably be the last Chima set I'll buy for quite awhile. I've only picked up the sets that interested me. I've got a bunch more City sets arriving soon and then I want to really focus on building up my own all-custom city.

Once again, nothing you see above should be considered final at all, but this is showing the general idea of the shape & rough arrangement of one corner of the layout. The train yard and port have been laid down exactly as they are in my digital mockup and they feel "right." Both are on a siding off the main line, so there's a little extra room for switching even when other trains are in continuous operation.
Again, not final at all! This is called work in progress!
Following the trend in Legends of Chima sets, it only stands to reason that members of the gorilla tribe would drive a gigantic mechanical... gorilla.
As I am a fan of both racing and LEGO, this Formula 1 inspired set really tugged at my heart strings when it was first unveiled.

This is it, the big one, big as they come for Legends of Chima, at least for now! A $120 set with over 1,200 pieces, four vehicles, seven minifigs with accessories!
I made this video before the set was available in the United States, and I based my approximation of price on the cost in other countries. This may end up being a $39 USD set once it is finally released in the US, in which case obviously my thoughts about value will be a bit ill-founded. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
This is one I've really been waiting for! Out of all of the LEGO City series sets this year, this has to be one of the most exciting and interesting as it does so, so much to populate, liven up, and fill out any town-like setting.
