Nexo Knights Official Reveal!

Post by Johnnyred on Thu Oct 08, 2015 12:53 pm



So LEGO Officially revealed their "Nexo Knights" theme.  When fans originally found out about this new theme slated for 2016, it was teased under the codename "Big Bang" and was rumored to be a Steampunk Castle theme.  However, with the official release today, LEGO debunked that theory.  It appears to be some weird mash-up of sci-fi and fantasy kinda like Ninjago's weird mix of tech and magic.  I don't know, I don't necessarily dislike this, but I don't necessarily like it either, I think all the settings should match... While the Knights are super tech advanced, it looks like the villages are just normal medieval.













All in all, I think I like this theme, though I do think some of the new pieces have a very evil little blocks of plastic theme to them... But aside from that and the mixture of settings, I think it'll be a pretty decent theme.

Agreed. That was my first thought when I saw it, that it has a MEGABl... ME--...I can't say it... "evil little blocks of plastic" feel to it... xD

I kinda wish it was a more "normal" Medieval theme. It's neat, though. Razz

Also, the poster reminds me of the LU reveal trailer. Razz

The figs are glorious and have a lot of potential to them. It's a very left-field sort of theme, but it's cool.

The figs are great... except for the big dude.  He straight up looks like the Halo evil little blocks of plastic figures.  Or a smaller sized Duplo fig.

Haha, "evil little blocks of plastic". I make a motion for that to be our newest censor. Razz

That Big-Fig does kinda disappoint me, though. It looks too poseable to be a Lego minifig. Razz Otherwise, looks like a pretty cool and intriguing theme. I kinda hope they stick to normal Castle still, though. I'd rather still have a source of new semi-realistic medieval pieces.

@ Arik - He's no more poseable than any other minifig, in fact, he looks less poseable, I don't think his hands twist at all.

I'm 100 % certain that LEGO is still planning to create regular castle themes, just not next year.  LOL.  All we're getting next year is techno knights.  I'm kinda hyped and kinda disappointed.  Especially since it's techno instead of Steampunk as it was previously rumored.

It has been for a while, which is why it says "evil little blocks of plastic" instead of, y'know, The Brand That Shall Not Be Named. Razz

I'm having a hard time grasping a medieval futuristic theme. They're not supposed to go together to me...except maybe in the old LU game. LOL
