Hello everyone,

I am back with another short review on this wonderful new LEGO Nexo Knights. Apart from the promotional giveaway of 30373 Knighton Hyper Cannon in Singapore, the 30371 Knight's Cycle was the other promotional polybag when you purchase SGD$30 (equivalent to USD$21) worth of Nexo Knights products in an atrium at a selected Toys R US outlet as part of their marketing activities. It is wonderful to be able to acquire another different type of polybag for this theme. Without further ado, let me begin with this review.

Name: 30371 Knight's Cycle

Theme: LEGO System / Nexo Knights

Year: 2016

Pieces: 38

Minifigs: 1 minifigure


Resources: Brickset, BrickLink

The fast scouting bike in Nexo Knights


This new polybag is a fun nifty cute motorbike. It is not common to see a semi-medieval looking soldier sitting on a mini-motorbike riding in those lands. Well, this one-seater motorbike is good enough to go for quick insertion into conflicting war zones and getting out of it very soon. It will probably be very useful for reconnaissance mission as well as for supporting other Nexo Knights in combat.

The LEGO building content


The polybag contains 38 building parts. You can see the front view and back view of the instruction manual that showed the detailed steps for this construction. These are the remaining spare parts.

So glad to see more of these wonderful generic Royal Soldiers in polybags as there are not many generic soldiers being made available in regular LEGO Nexo Knights set in large quantities. Unfortunately, this metallic looking Royal Soldier does not come with energy armour unlike in those small box sets like the 70310 Knighton Battle Blaster and 70311 Chaos Catapult. There are back printing and alternate subtle facial appearance which is not seen in this image.

The completed built of the Knight's Cycle


The Knight's Cycle is designed to be fast and quick, similar to a speeder. Likewise, my first impression that this is more like a mini-bat pod for the LEGO Nexo Knights. A few of these Knight's Cycle will probably form a good reconnaissance section to gather inteligence. I could also use this bike for border patrol as well. The overall size make it look quite adorable. It is coupled with two stud shooters blasters at the front of the bike and equipped with throttles at the rear. You can take a closer look at the assembled built of the Knight's Cycle from the side view.

Good and enjoyable fun with the rest of the LEGO Nexo Knights sets


To conclude, this is an average good playing polybag. My complaint is the missing of an energy armour and I will certainly prefer a sword instead of a jousting lance. I think this is a great promotional giveaway but I am not sure if it will entice fans to get it off in the secondary market. Personally I think a reasonable USD$4 to $5 is acceptable based on the standard LEGO polybag rates in the United States. All in all, I am glad to have this polybag and at the same time, able to own more new LEGO Nexo Knights sets.

Summary review

Playability: 7/10 (Fun to move it around and shooting blaster.)

Design: 6.5/10 (Decent cute nifty motorbike.)

Price: 7/10 (If you get it as part of the promotional deal, then is definitely worth it. Otherwise don't pay more what it perceived to be.)

Overall: 6.8/10 (Nice generic looking royal soldier to increase the total of the soldiers accompanied with a good polybag design.)

I gave it a "3" based on my Review Score Card. :wink: What about yours?

I hope every one of you enjoyed reading this simple review of mine. Comments and Criticisms are strongly welcomed.

Nice review!

I went against the grain and voted "Outstanding" because of the useful parts and the set being a cheap and effective way to build up armies of the Royal Solider.

For some reason I do not like the minifig at all. Maybe it's just the helmet and its color, it looks too "plasticky" to me. I wonder how the minifig would look like with say one of the knights helmet. I also do not really like the combination of a lance and blasters. I know it's a common thing for NK but one that in my eyes takes away a lot from the theme. I can easily imagine a "what if gun powder was never invented" scenario and many things would work well for me (close combat, mechs...), but a combination of "we have firearms and yet we rely on lances" just doesn't click with me. Maybe that's the reason I love the baddies far more than the good guys.
