I imagine that although Crominus is the leader, Cragger will be the most consistently present villain. Most kings don't fight all their battles themselves. Consider Avatar: The Last Airbender; although the Fire Lord was known and understood to be the main villain, most of the fighting throughout the majority of the series instead involved his family and underlings. Now I'm not saying Cragger is a banished prince who must capture the Chi crystals to restore his honor, but he does have that scar over his eye... :wink:
This some great insight. It's got me thinking that this is quite the possible solution to the case.

I think that sometime ago we heard that Crominius is croc king and prince Cragger's father (I think that it was from the same site that had got first info about gorillas).
That where we heard it from. Same place we got the set names from.
I can't wait to clear up the Croc Story. It seems as if Chima will be very family oriented. I'm gonna call it now, one of the families is going to have a dead parent. Every family has a dead parent (thanks a lot Disney for starting the trend)

I'm saying it's the Lions. It just seems like such a silly joke to make.

Anyway, maybe Cragger is the king and Crominus is his son?

I hope nobody finds me weird for saying this, but Eris is one adorable eagle girl. I mean, LEGO had the right idea with exposing her belly button there. :wub:

I agree, some of the characters in this series are really adorable, especially the Lions and the Eagles. I'm not sure if that's intentional though. :laugh:

After zooming in on the Croc Boat it really looks like there are a few detachable vehicles on it. I think I counted possibly 4?

I think it's just two detatchable mini-vehicles on the Croc boat.  I've been trying to work out whether they've used a floating hull on it.

Looks so very pleasing. I have lots of hope that these sets will do well.
They haven't been released yet, but I have a friend who is returning to Lego because of them! So they better do well :grin:

I thought it had been established that the rear part with the tail and propellers detaches to form a flying craft? There was a very small pic posted a while back that showed it detached from the boat.

Also thank you GRogall. :sweet:

What did we learn today, kids? Crooler is the first minifig with a navel piercing ever. :laugh: Actually, she and Razcal are the first minifigs with piercings I've ever seen..

We figured that out after the first good pics, several months ago. And yes Jargo, it does detach.

I don't, I don't know the Agents line very well.

I ran a Bricklink search using the word "piercing" and "piercings" but I didn't find anything so I made that, uh,  bold statement. :blush:

Ring and navel piercings I'm pretty sure are a first though, I think.

Minifigs are getting very 'street' what with rappers in the CMF theme and shaved lines in eyebrows in the City police subtheme and now this piercing. The new parts thread revealed a minifig torso with arm tattoo too. Lego is hip to the hop.

I believe some of those Mars Mission round parts in olive are used at the back of the Croc Boat.

I love that LEGO put a brick separator in the Croc Boat. Its not like I don't have enough of those already. Kidding. The amount of Olive in the Croc Boat though... I am sure I'll be seeing a lot more military MOCs at BrickFair.

Thank you so much for the pictures, 'GRogall'! :classic:
I'm still not liking these sets. I think this is it. I'll probably pick up the two under $20 and a Speedorz set. Though, the Crocodile Boat and figures look much better in high-res, but that is all the props I will give this wave. :tongue:
I'm REALLY looking forward to the Toy Fair, the Summer sets sound fantastic.

Originally I wasn't fond of the Croc Boat. It is growing on me though. I like all the figs with it. Personally, the Crocs got the raw end of the deal on vehicles. I'm hoping the Wolves get a lot more love in the next wave.

Looks like an olive green version of the green cargo boat from Ciy Harbour the other year. Certainly a floating one. The dinigies are also floating parts
