As we get closer to the release of LEGO Nexo Knights in late December/early January, more and more information gets revealed, so I thought this was a good time for an update. We have discussed LEGO Nexo Knights previously (see links at the end of this post), but in short LEGO Nexo Knights is an original story by LEGO depicting a medieval kingdom set in a futuristic world where five young, brave knights “download” special powers to their shields in order to battle the royal court’s evil Jestro and a cast of monsters to restore peace. The story will come to life through LEGO building sets, a television show with 20 episodes, a digital gaming app, and more. 🙂
➡ LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS TRAILERS: To introduce the story and characters of LEGO Nexo Knights, LEGO has been releasing a number of trailers. While I found the sets a bit too unusual at the beginning, now that I have been watching the various trailers and teasers the sets make a lot more sense. These short clips are funny and enjoyable with great graphics and LEGO humor. Below are some of the latest ones:
➡ LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS SETS – MORE PICTURES: We have discussed several of the LEGO Nexo Knights sets already, but since then even more pictures have become available. The largest is the #70317 LEGO Nexo Knights The Fortrex with a blue castle on tracks – such a crazy contraption that it actually looks good. There are other interesting sets as well. The #70327 LEGO Nexo Knights The King’s Mech and the #70312 LEGO Lance’s Mecha Horse are some of the more unusual ones, while the #70315 LEGO Nexo Knights Clay’s Rumble Blade resembles some of the Ninjago sets.
And the side of the baddies looks awesome. With a devilish looking red, black, fiery orange and brown color-scheme I actually like them even better than the good guys. There is a good number of small to medium-size sets, with a few large ones, so this theme will definitely fit everyone’s budget. I have posted some of the pictures here, and you can find the rest of them in the Brickset database.
The initial feedback to LEGO Nexo Knights has been a bit like the reaction to LEGO Ninjago. Older LEGO fans were confused about the mash-up of different styles and time-periods, while kids eagerly embraced a fresh look on a timeless story. And Ninjago keeps going strong to this day. I’m not sure if LEGO Nexo Knights will get as popular as Ninjago, but based on the trailers, it may have a better developed storyline and characters than LEGO Legends of Chima. I found Laval really-really annoying…
So what do you think? Do you believe that LEGO Nexo Knights have the potential of becoming as big as LEGO Ninjago? How do you like the trailers and the characters so far? And what do you think of the LEGO Nexo Knights sets? Are there any sets that you definitely plan to get? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
