Let's take a closer look

Background

The powerful Chi (Chi is the natural resource that flows through Chima, giving life and energy to the land) is stored in the precious orbs inside the Lion Temple. The Lions guard the Chi and share it with the Chima animal tribes.

The power of the Chi has kept peace between the animals of Chima for many years. Cragger, the Crocodile Prince, now plans to overturn the Lions to get the Chi and he's joined forces with the Wolves and Ravens, however, the Lions and Eagles will continue to bravely defend the Chi.

The Minifigures

The play set includes seven minifigures: King Lagravis, Laval and Longtooth (Lion Tribe); Crawley and Cragger (Crocodile Tribe), Ewald (Eagle Tribe) and a Razar (Raven Tribe).

The Temple

The highlight of this Lego play set is the temple which is full of incredible detail. On the top of the temple blue crystal pieces show the Chi liquid flowing out of the temple. King Lagravis (the King of the Lions) is on the temple tower and his head is enveloped with a Chi bubble. Just below the tower is the lions head which represents the Lion tribe.

The structure of the temple symbolises the lion tribe and its alliance with the eagle tribe. Longtooth is stood on one arm of the temple with his large weapon ready to fire on an approaching enemy, and Ewald is stood on another arm on his glider and holding his sword.
