I was browsing LEGO’s Facebook page, and found a series of pictures of some strange statues. They are apparently related to the upgraded LEGO Nexo Knights: Merlok 2.0 app. I thought to share the images here as the artwork is pretty… let’s just say… unusual. 🙂
In the third season of the LEGO Nexo Knights animated series, the main badguy, Monstrux, turns into a storm cloud. According to LEGO’s description on Facebook, The Cloud of Monstrux is transforming statues all around the world to be part of his Stone Monster Army. I’m not sure if this statue-turning plot is also in the game, or it is just an excuse to release some cool artwork with haunted statues.
There are four statues in the series. The first one depicts a famous bronze sculpture from Italy, with a she-wolf nurturing the abandoned twins Romulus and Remus from the legend of the founding of Rome. The second picture is of the Bavaria Statue from Germany. Notice how the wreath in her raised hand was replaced by a LEGO Nexo Knights shield. The third statue is of a Chinese guardian lion, and the last statue is of The Little Mermaid from Denmark (also holding a LEGO Nexo Knights shield).
Again, I’m not sure why LEGO decided to add famous statues to advertise the LEGO Nexo Knights app, but maybe some of our readers who play the game regularly can shed some light on it. Nonetheless, the artwork is interesting. The pictures link to the LEGO Nexo Knights: Merlok 2.0 app page. And you can also check out the recently released sets related to the story at the LEGO Nexo Knights section of the Online LEGO Shop.
What do you think? Do you have any insights into why LEGO added these images of haunted statues? Have you been playing the game? How do you like it? And what do you think of the new storyline? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
