LEGO Nexo Knights pictures, trailers & more!

We just talked about LEGO Nexo Knights a few days ago (see: LEGO Nexo Knights More Details & Picture!), and now we have even more information. At the 2015 New York Comic Con LEGO officially revealed LEGO Nexo Knights coming next year. Below are the details from the press-release, pictures of some of the sets and characters, as well as a couple of trailers to introduce the story. Enjoy! 🙂

LEGO Nexo Knights Poster

LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS AT COMIC CON: The LEGO Group today announced LEGO Nexo Knights, a new, original LEGO property 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 comes to life through LEGO building sets, an episodic television and a digital gaming app that fuels story-driven gameplay. The property launches later this year, with products available starting January 1, 2016. LEGO Nexo Knights characters, story, app experience and two iconic building sets from the collection will be previewed to New York Comic Con attendees, Thursday, October 8 through Sunday, October 11 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center (Booth #1436).

“Inspired by insights to meet the emerging needs of today’s kids, LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS juxtaposes a timeless world of medieval knights with a futuristic twist in a captivating story that invites children to explore LEGO play in a whole new way,” said Casper Thingholm of the LEGO Group. “LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS offers children the rewarding building experiences they know and love, amplified by digital enhancements that merge what today’s kids love: self-expression, strong characters, deep content-driven story and digital gaming.”

LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS STORY: Set in the futuristic, high-tech world of the Kingdom of Knighton, LEGO Nexo Knights follows five young knights in their quest to battle Jestro, his sidekick, the Book of Monsters, and their Lava Monster Army. Heroic knight, Clay Moorington, leads the band of knights, including alpha superstar Lance Richmond, hipster Aaron Fox, Macy Halbert, a princess who would rather be a knight, and Axl, the giant. Together, under the tutelage of Knights’ Academy mentor and Great Digital Wizard, Merlok 2.0, they join forces to defeat the enemy.

LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS APP: To extend the story and increase playing fun, more than 150 unique LEGO Nexo Knights powers – represented as shields – have been scattered across the kingdom of Knighton. The powers can be found in building sets, online, in print and directly in the television content. Existing in both physical and digital form, children can discover, scan and collect varied powers using the LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS: MERLOK 2.0 app. Once added to a digital power collection, children can creatively and continuously find new ways to join the knights to defeat the enemy, in their gaming experience. Available in late December 2015, the LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS: MERLOK 2.0 app will be available as a free download via App Store, Google Play, Samsung Apps and Amazon Appstore.

LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS TV SERIES: LEGO Nexo Knights, a 20-episode, animated adventure comedy series, will debut on select global broadcast television networks as soon as late December 2015 and air throughout 2016. The core means by which children follow the story and get to know the characters, the series follows the constant adventures of LEGO Nexo Knights heroes and villains. Children will also be able to scan new LEGO Nexo Knights powers directly from their content viewing screen into their app games, further connecting their play experience. Below are a couple of trailers to introduce you to the story.

LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS WEBSITE: The official LEGO Nexo Knights website is already up and running. There is not much on it yet besides short intro videos for each of the characters and some downloadable posters, but I’m sure as we get closer to the release date there will be a lot more.

LEGO Nexo Knights Website

As you can see, this is going to be a major mixed theme in the line of LEGO Ninjago and LEGO Legends of Chima. As we mentioned previously, LEGO Nexo Knights has somewhat of a LEGO Knights Kingdom II vibe with minifigs resembling Warhammer characters. At the same time the blue and translucent-orange color-scheme is reminiscent of the LEGO Space Ice Planet sets from the 1990s. So yeah, definitely mixed! 🙄

    OH WOW! these sets look a lot less cheesy than I expected them to be. Definitely something I’d want to get! I like the clever engineering on that big knight with robot arms!

    • admin October 9, 2015, 10:30 AM

      Yeah, I like them better too than what I have seen on preliminary images… Hover horses. Who doesn’t like hover horses? 🙄

    • LegoUniverse Bob October 9, 2015, 10:44 AM

      I agree. They seemed way more cheesy, even before watching those two intro videos!

  • LegoUniverse Bob October 9, 2015, 10:50 AM

    I really like these sets now, and seem to be liking those big, bulky monsters. The talking book looks like it could be humorous as well. Another thing is that all the mini-builds for both the Knights and the, erm, Monsters, look fantastic (robo-horses, tech bike, flying mini-cannon, awesome giant monster… So much)!

    The only fault I see is Jamestro’s minifig face/ expression. Hopefully he comes with an alt., because I honestly hate that grin…

    Definitely getting a set! 😀 8) ❗

    • Håkan October 10, 2015, 6:05 AM

      Do you mean Jestro? You know, he’s a jester…

  • TheBrickLot October 9, 2015, 11:20 AM

    Did you know that each knight is from a “tribe” from the classic space? An examples are the wolves, black falcons, dragons, etc.

    • admin October 9, 2015, 1:14 PM

      You mean from Classic Castle, right?

      • TheBrickLot October 9, 2015, 1:54 PM

        Yes I do. Also it appears that the guy with the crossbow has a smaller version of the newish spring-loaded missiles! 😀

        • admin October 9, 2015, 1:56 PM

          Yes! That’s one of the new pieces! There are some other exciting new pieces too like the small pyramids, those new dark-blue walls, and of course most of the minifigs armor and accessories. 🙂

          • BLProductions October 9, 2015, 2:05 PM

            Wait… admin, what dark blue walls? The tall ones on the front of the castle above the Rapid Shooters? I must know….
            I have seen those pyramids, call them “Pyramid 1x1x2/3”, on that one horse, I’ll have to look for more. I waste so much time hunting new pieces. 😉 😕

  • BLProductions October 9, 2015, 2:19 PM

    I really like the castle, Fortrex. I note that it can flex in the middle: the whole front end turns for steering. Jestro’s thing is okay, definitely some good parts, but less interesting. And the minifigs… I hoped they were reasonable people, but having watched the character videos, they seem a little obnoxious. I guess I’ll have to watch the show to find out. 😕 Shame they don’t have more standard armor; no custom LotR minifigs there.
    Ok, new parts. Not counting armor, shields, swords, and headpieces, I see about 3 to 4. I also think the shields may be 2 pieces: 1 base, different tops.

    • admin October 9, 2015, 4:57 PM

      You might want to check this thread at Eurobricks. It lists all the new parts with pictures: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=105102&st=3750#entry2351857. I think you will like it. 🙂

      • BLProductions October 9, 2015, 9:16 PM

        Ah, excellent! Thanks! Definitely useful. 😀
        Most of the parts are minifigure accessories, and so I won’t bother with them. However, I do need to document the wall element, both book parts, and that rubber nub part – which at first I couldn’t find, but then I saw that there’s one on every track tread. And I figured out their purpose: they provide traction so the tracks will turn on smooth surfaces! Add these to your Wall-E’s tracks to solve that track problem…. 🙂

    I am going to New York Comic Con tomorrow so maybe I can see the sets there!

    • David Tennant Lover October 9, 2015, 3:02 PM

      By the way, I got a good kick out of that video. It looked like a spoof or parody! Glad the sets aren’t bad like I thought they’d be.

    • admin October 9, 2015, 4:57 PM

      Yes, you should definitely see them as they are displayed there. 🙂

      • David Tennant Lover October 9, 2015, 5:30 PM

        Awesome!!! 🙂

  • Superweapon October 9, 2015, 5:01 PM

    I think the villains of Nexo are really solid. The minifigs in general are some of the coolest I’ve seen, not counting liscensed themes. The only thing I don’t like is the good guy color scheme. I get its an homage to the Ice Planet sets but imo blue, orange, and grey is one of the ugliest color schemes ever, alongside green and orange. The hover horse is very nice though.

    • Håkan October 9, 2015, 5:12 PM

      Ice Planet was white… Works much better…

      • Håkan May 1, 2016, 6:41 AM

        Blue and gray feels quite Classic Space, I’d say…

  • Ray Kremer October 10, 2015, 12:51 AM

    Castle tank. Castle. Tank.
