Gormiti - The Invincible Lords of Nature
Gormiti - The Worldwide Smash Toy Hit
When the range of small plastic figures, known as Gormiti were launched at news-stands in Italy several years ago, no-one could guess the phenomenon that was about to happen. Soon, just about every child in Italy sported a huge collection of Gormiti figures and the following Christmas, Gormiti sales in Italy were in the tens of millions. A UK launch took place, along with launches in other European countries, then in 2009, Gormiti set its sights on the United States market. The original, standard size Gormiti have spawned playsets, giant figures, magnetic figures, tonnes of accessories and now a cartoon series and console games.
So what exactly is it all about? Gormiti - The Invincible Lords of Nature are involved in an epic struggle to take command of the Island of Gorm. Once upon a time, Gorm was a peaceful land, inhabited by Nature Lovers. That was before Magmion, the Lord of Magma appeared, wreaking havoc in his path. He roused the Fire Mountain volcano and obliterated the island and its people.
But the wise Old Sage lived and conjured into life brand new Gormiti tribes from the very elements themselves. The tribes of Earth, Forest, Sea and Air were born. But to face them, Magmion brought forth the Magma and Lava Gormiti tribes from the very heart of Fire Mountain to face them. Which of these tribes will win this epic clash? Who will conquer the Island of Gorm?
