When it comes to armies, I'm going to follow the same method I used with Ninjago. The named characters get the Golden Weapons, the extras I get, if they do not have a special head that looks like another character, will have normal colored weapons and amass in numbers throughout the year.

To put it simply. I keep only one Scales form Ninjago with my minifig display, but I keep both Slithraas. However, only one Slithraa has a gold weapon, therefore, he, and not the other, shall be called Slithraa.

That's just a better quality version of a pic we saw before.

Apparently teasers are appearing randomly in other LEGO websites, although I haven't got one myself yet.

Saw that today, too. Seems it can show up on any page on Lego's site - with the background shining through.
I still am not seeing it. I checked all over too....

It´s random, so while you may not see it after a hundred pages, some may see it on their first `try`.

Some great figs in this theme. I'm not too crazy about most of the sets themselves, though. Really wish they'd gone more of a "Zoids" direction with the vehicles. The Eagle jet and the Chi Raider are my two must-haves from this theme, although I'm hoping there'll be a lion mech at some point. Love the Lion figs. Might have to break down and get the Lion Quad just because. :tongue:

Could it potentially have to do with which region you have Lego.com set to?

I tried on the en-us site and the de-de site, since those are the two languages I know. Nothing, still.

Nothng yet in my area. I've seen some City and Galaxy Squad and all Hobbit. Which is probably a good thing, since I can't really afford to buy any more LEGO for a while.

So have we determined how many Speedorz we will be getting the first wave (only the $15 ones)? My intention is to buy every single Speedorz set as soon as they're out. Based on how well the Ninjago spinners did upon release tells me that LoC will probably be the same way.

Cool. The Pack Tracker is in a suitable price range for me. May have to get that. It interested me, but looked too expensive.

I really hope the tracker is better than Nuckal's ATV. It was a sad little set at a $25 price point.
EDIT: I just realized how much Lennox's Lion Attack was. :facepalm:

Also we seem to have no prices for 70011, 70012, and 70013. My best guess is that they are Walmart, Target, and TRU exclusives in the US respectively.

I did some math as well:
All Speedorz on page one- $154.91
All sets (excluding possible exclusives mentioned above)- $236.93

Total- $391.84

Yeah all 15 dollar ones along with the eagle castle and the ultimate speedorz tournament thingy.

Oh this Wolf vehicle will indeed be better or else...

Too bad the website can't be accessed for some reason. >.<

EDIT: Nevermind, it only doesn't work if you don't add the /en-us/teaser bit.

Anyway, the video is very short and has bad sound, but the animation looks fantastic! :)

EDIT: The sound is actually much better here.

Notice, Laval's Speedor has an outer shell attatched with Technic pins.  That would be the two customization features, the first being the side mounted weapons.
