    @starfire2 all 3 of those are new speedorz. They're releasing them more frequently than building sets, like they did with Ninjago spinners or with Hero Factory. To help collect them they've got a large number on the package in a picture of a chi orb.... from 1-17 so far iirc:

    The first wave was released in January with 4 single packs, a double pack "starter set", and 2 building sets with 2 speedorz each:
    Speedorz: #70100 Ring of Fire (3) , #70101 Target Practice (4), #70102 Chi Waterfall (5), #70103 Boulder Bowling (6)
    Starter Pack: #70113 Chi Battles (1)
    Building Sets: #70115 Ultimate Speedor Battle (16), #70011 Eagles' Castle (17)

    The 2nd wave consisted of only 3 standalone speedorz and was released in the spring:
    Speedorz: #70104 Jungle Gates (7), #70105 Nest Dive (8), #70106 Ice Tower (9)

    The 3rd wave came out about a month ago and has 3 more speedorz and the 2nd starter pack with 2 speedorz in it:
    Speedorz: #70107 Skunk Attack (10), #70108 Royal Roost (11), #70109 Whirling Vines (12)
    Starter Pack: #70114 Sky Joust (2)

    I suspect that the next wave will be the 3 speedorz you see in your pic completing the first year's 17 speedorz related sets:
    #70110 Tower Target (13), #70111 Swamp Jump (14), #70112 Croc Chomp (15)
    The cool thing about these 3 sets is the shells for the speedorz are transparent not opaque, which is new for speedorz.

    Note that the Eagles' Castle was in the regular line of building sets but still contains two speedorz. Both Eagles' Castle's & Sky Joust's speedorz are in other sets, whereas Chi Battles' & Ultimate Speedor Tournament's speedorz are unique to the sets).

    The leaks about 2014 sets listed 5 speedorz sets but no info is known yet beyond set numbers and names. I'd conjecture that there will be 4 speedorz and a starter pack based on the set names:
    #70136 Banana Bash, #70137 Bat Strike, #70138 Web Dash, #70139 Sky Launch, #70140 Stinger Duel, the latter being my guess for the double speedorz starter pack as "duel" should mean 2 are fighting?

    ^Does someone like Chima?

    Just wanted to share with everyone. I like the fox. Hopefully it is out soon.

    Fox is cool. I like the skunk too.

    I am SO sick of Crocs, but the fox and gorilla are neat. I hope Lego knows what they are doing, pumping out 20+ different Speedorz...

    I managed to get hold of a copy of #70111 today here in the UK (I know this is the US shopping thread but please bear with - I don't know if this set is out in the US yet) - and I thought I'd post some pics of the details of the fox minifigure for anyone who was thinking of buying #70111 for the minifig, including the shots of the front, the back and both prints you get behind the fox mask, perhaps to whet one's appetite:

    Note lil' Furty is just an orange Skinnet skunk - same problems with the tail as described in one of Huw's reviews. I solved this by bending the neck bracket gently downwards before putting it on the minifig.
    And I couldn't resist posting this picture of the set itself in case you need it to make your mind up:

    I'm not very good at Speedorz as it turns out...

    ^ Thanks for posting the pics @TheOneVeyronian, I'm not into Chima but the fox looks pretty cool, might have to see what I can do about getting the figs!

    I called the Lego Group and they said it was a printing error in our catalog. They are not currently available. It is possible it is a winter release. Sucks for us in the US but whatever?
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    newest catalogs in the US say available Nov 1st for the next 3 speedorz

    ^cool, I think my kids would like the Fox fellow for Christmas and the extra bits in that set seem more useable than most of the other Speedorz
