Gormiti Toys Guide - An Introduction
Gormiti, also known as the Invincible Lords of Nature is primarily a toy line with mini-figures and trading cards. The toy line was developed in Italy in 2005. The mini-figures are a series of PVC figures that are not pose-able, each with a corresponding trading card. There is also a TV show based on the line of toys.
The mini-figures each have a random number printed on its foot. Each card has a power number as well. To play the game, players just add the number from their figure to the number on their trading card. The player with the highest number is the winner. Figures are sold in different pack configurations: in single foil bags, multi-packs with two to four figures, or in gift sets.
There are many different characters to choose from, including heroes and villains. You can also choose from many different play sets and toys. Price Inspector’s buying guide will help answer your questions, sort through the various options, and buy the right Gormiti toy.

Characters and Tribes
The Gormiti game and TV show are set on the beautiful Island of Gorm, which was inhabited by a peaceful people who loved nature. They live at the base of Fire Mountain, which is a dormant volcano that has never threatened their village. Then Magmium, Lord of Evil, started creating creatures from the lava, called the Lords of Magma. Together, they ruled the peaceful, defenceless Gormiti.
The Gormiti has four good tribes, each of which has a Lord and a Guardian, although the Guardians do not appear that frequently.
- Earth Tribe: This tribe has stone motifs that resemble rocks, moles, and other ground creatures. They are represented on Earth by Nick, who becomes Lord of the Earth when he travels to Gorm. The Guardian is Roscalion.
- Forest Tribe: This tribe consists of tree or plant based characters. They are led by Lucas, who is Lord of the Forest in Gorm. Troncalion is the Guardian.
- Sea Tribe: Led by Toby, Lord of the Sea, the Sea Tribe is made up of different sea creatures, as well as amphibians and reptiles.
- Air Tribe: This tribe features insects, birds, and flying creatures such as bats or reptiles. They are led by Jessica, Lord of the Air.
The Volcano Tribe, which is the evil tribe, started as two sub-tribes, both of which were red. The two tribes have now merged into a single tribe, which uses fire, inspects, and reptiles. They are led by Magmium and Lavion
. Another main character in the Volcano Tribe is Drakkon
