  1. [MOC] Nexo Knights -- Ava's Stone Embassy

    Thanks, everyone! I sometimes feel like the only AFOL out there who likes the stone monsters, so I tried to make a worthy home for 'em. It's just too bad that stone monsters can't swim...although maybe that's part of the reason that Ava picked this site for the Embassy. Oh, and Lordofdragonss -- I am not sure what happened to the krakenbeast, but I hope its fate is better than what happened to Ruina's pets. Ava declawed them to make the docking bars for the pier.
  2. Ava was pretty miffed about getting left out of the third-year sets, so she left Knighton and took up with the rocky remnants of Jestro's stone army. Desperate for leadership, the surviving stone monsters threw in their lot with Ava. Styling herself the Ambassador, she has holed up in a waterlogged fortress she calls the Stone Embassy, where she now leads and protects what few stone monsters remain.

King Halbert may have been a little worried about Clay's loyalties because he insisted on sending two minders along as well.

The Ambassador assures him that everything is all right and quickly hurries the tour along.

  3. NK Vyro Vampire MOCs

    It's going to take me a bit of time, but my next project is to make a vampire ship -- "vampirates", I guess you could call them -- using the third-year colors (translucent green, black, white, and light green) and the Virus Vampires as the crew.
  4. In Memoriam: Remembering Nexo Knights

    First-time poster here to mourn the passing of Nexo Knights. I was that rare AFOL who adored the theme and loved the second-year stone monsters best of all -- many found the purple-grey-blue color scheme off-putting, but I thought it was fantastic. I really admire the courage and creativity of the theme (even if some of the sets didn't click), and I don't see anything else in Lego's catalog at the moment that draws my interest in the same way. (But though I collected the sets, I couldn't be bothered to watch the TV show or play the game, so I clearly was not the target audience!) I could read the writing on the wall -- the raft of discounts, the lack of advertising, the limited shelf space -- and knew that the theme's days were numbered, but I'm still unhappy that it had to end. Farewell, NK!
