Apparently, Chima was supposed to be a Thundercats set until the licensing fell through.

We watched exactly one episode of the TV series, and this was pretty apparent.

That looks so cool!

Maybe I'm missing something, but is that something you can buy?

It's the process for people to submit ideas to LEGO.  Someone submits an idea, they have to get 10000 likes, then LEGO will officially consider it.  Unfortunately LEGO can veto stuff if it can't be licensed, wouldn't be cost effective, or just doesn't fit the LEGO brand.  This is how the BTTF and Ghostbusters sets were created.

I would just love a Lego Satellite of love, Tom Servo and Crow... but 10000 likes? That might take a while regardless of how beloved MST3K is.

On another subject, a few months ago I got the Emperor's throne room in Star Wars and it was a pretty awesome build, but it took about 3 hours. Very cool build complete with Emperor, Darth Vader, Royal Guards and Luke Skywalker.

No shit? I'll buy one to sell when they go out of print. I made $50 on the delorean for doing nothing more than stashing it in my closet for a year.

It's a steep initial investment at $350.

The extra minifigs really make that set golden.
