I wonder if the lion crib looks something like this:
These Chima sets look so nifty, especially the Croc-inspired sets. If I was a kid, I'd play with these for hours. I'd imagine I'd twist the story a bit, and make a race of hybrid creatures, half-croc/half-bird, half-lion/half-bird, half-bird everything, because wings are cool. One group of these hybrid creatures would tout themselves as the next evolution of the Chima races, and be militant; While another group of hybrids would espouse tolerance and inclusion with the "pure-breds". Wait, you've heard this before? It's X-Men? Who are they?
