The New Crawley’s Reptile Gripper, from Legends of Chima, is a set that will be released in the beginning of 2013, and for about fifteen dollars it will bring the big strange Gripper that is a mix of a reptile, a driller and a buggy. Besides the vehicle, two mini-figures are included: Crawley and Leonidas.
The Crocodile’s nose, at the front, with those big sharp teeth imposes definitely a lot of respect. With a few technique pieces the crocodile’s mandibles opens widely almost ninety degrees. Attached to it, two little crawlers with a couple of wheels each are responsible for the front locomotion.
The Legends of Chima, as you possibly know, is one of the new 2013 sets and it will possibly substitute the 2011 Ninjago. According to the pictures below the rumors are highly supported because all the style, the feelings and most of all its features with all the gaming cards are quite similar for sure.
Basically the theme has two different concepts: the traditional sets with vehicles, figures or whatever and the speedorz that apparently will replace the Ninjago spinners. Some sites give a quick but not too detailed explanation about them talking about a sort of small vehicle with a pullback mechanism which will interact with the cards. Next year we will see about that.Talking about the sets, they are quite strange and different just as Ninjago was.
