LEGO CHIMA The Lion CHI Temple

Fall 2013 Toys
Ages: 8 - 14 yrs.
Manufacturer: The LEGO Group
Price: $119.99

The LEGO Chima Lion CHI Temple is a large LEGO set in the CHIMA line, a series of humanoid characters with animal heads locked in classic heroes-vs.-villains conflicts. In this set, more than 1,200 pieces are assembled into a temple with an imposing lion's mouth drawbridge, towers, moving floor, waterfalls, four mini vehicles, and seven minifigures. The temple is a challenging build. Moving parts require careful attention to detail and sturdy construction, and this set has moving parts in spades. Once built, the lion's mouth clamps down imposingly on the invaders as vehicles come bursting out from behind translucent waterfalls; many hours of creative play are ahead with this set. And you can seldom go wrong with LEGOs—once the Temple no longer thrills, it can be taken apart and imaginatively rebuilt into something completely different.
