  1. This is a hard ship to pull off at this scale, and you've done a really nice job. I do think that if you used more subdued colors for the cargo, maybe dark blue and dark red, it would look a bit more like Hans ship as it appeared in episode vii, but your current version could just represent another cargo load.

    Thanks for the info, I was hoping for at least one more set, but this is what I expected.

    On reddit right now, there is a leaked image of what looks to be advertising material that features the Cowboy from the upcoming CMF wave. The interesting thing is that he seems to be standing above a Nexo Knights box. I personally can't tell whether it is a new set or not (let's face it, it's most likely not), but it is interesting.

    I think you're right. I complained about the gold, but that isn't the problem per se. I'd really like the figures if they had gold visors. I'm not sure what color to use for the vehicles, though.

    I like that Robin is now a full sized figure, but I'm disappointed that he doesn't have a unique helmet or any new torso or leg printing. It's especially surprising given that he seems to have his own Merlock power just like the other knights. As for the wave as a whole, I love the Nexo Knights theme, but his wave is my least favorite, yet. The villain vehicles are great, but the villains themselves aren't as appealing as the lava and rock/lightning monsters, and the gold accents for the knights just don't work for me. However, I think this is the best yet as far as my 6 and 7 yo are concerned. They both love Clay's mech suit, and the inclusion of both Monstrux and Merlock makes it a must-buy for them.
  6. I love micro scale Star Wars, and this is a great example of packing a lot of accurate detail on to a small model. Well done

    As far as I know, you are correct. However, you can browse the replacement parts section, and it appears to not yet have some of the new elements listed, especially minifig pieces. Also, I believe that this is the same database that brickset queries when you go to the parts page for a set there.

    Wow, I didn't actually expect a response. My congrats to the entire Nexo Knights team. Not only does the theme look like a lot of fun, but the new elements have tons of potential. Now, when can we get these helmets in a new space theme? Sorry, had to ask.

    LEGO Star Wars 2016 Pictures and Rumors

    From the first book, Sinjir might make the most sense, but i don't recall a ship of this description appearing in Aftermath, so it might be any character from part 2 or 3. This is, of course, the more likely possibility.

    Alright, here's a shot in the dark on the Hammerhead. It looks like we are getting a battle droid in the minifig line-up. What if the battle droid is Mr. Bones from Aftermath? Admittedly, the battle droid is probably a placeholder, and this is a Rebels set from an episode that we haven't seen yet or this is a ship from the Clone Wars that I don't recognize, but it's fun to speculate.

    I'll wait for the stone step microfighter with Luke. I hear it looks like a Star Wars speeder version of the stair car from Arrested Development.

    No problem, thanks for checking. According to the Brickset database pull, the Lego inventory for the Fortrex is only about 85% complete, so I am, perhaps naively, hopeful that there are additions coming. Otherwise, I'll be heading to bricklink and hoping for better luck there.

    Thanks for the pics, that looks fantastic. It wouldn't surprise me if Mark Stafford was responsible for the design of this piece. I'm definitely going to have to pick up at least one set with Aaron, but I'm hoping that the helmet shows up in bricks and pieces, and that will probably be just the start with this theme.

    At the risk of distracting from the Flama discussion, I have a quick question that perhaps someone here can help me with. The Brickset/official Lego databases aren't fully updated, so I can't tell if Aaron is the traditional green or bright green. Also, how do the new helmet molds look with a city/space visor? I'm typically a space/Star Wars collector, but I really like the looks of this theme, but I'm still a bit on the fence. If the helmets can be used with my exo-suit astronauts I'll have to at least pick up a set with Aaron.

    It's amazing what a difference a couple relatively subtle mods can make. Well done!
