While doing my usual news finding on various LEGO communities, I came across something that many people will find interesting. Eurobricks member Karus has posted the above image of the LEGO Legends of Chima: Sticker Storybook which came from Amazon. The image gives us our very first look at a minifigure from the Scorpion tribe as well as from the Spider tribe. The Scorpion is mostly yellow and black and it looks like it’s wearing an armor piece that uses a simple hinge technique to attach the tail (see below). The head piece is also pretty cool looking with it’s emblem on top of the head and the mandibles in front of the mouth.
If you look towards the background of the cover, you can see a little bit of the minifigure from the Spider tribe. Although it’s not very clear, you can see some of the details for it. It’s brown and it looks like it’s wearing a grass skirt. You can also see it’s fangs on the menacing head piece. The four long legs are attached to the back probably similar to Doc Ock from the Spider-Man set.
My initial impression on these new characters is very good. I really like the look of the Scorpion and am looking forward to picking one it up when it comes out next year. Looking at the rumored 2014 Legends of Chima set list, I would guess the Scorpion will be in the Scorm’s Scorpion Stinger (70132) and/or in the Stinger Duel (70140). The Spider could be in the Sparratus’ Spider Striker (70130), Spinlyn’s Cavern (70133), or the Web Dash (70138).
