  1. LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    You know what's kind of a shame? That they didn't take the opportunity to give us a Trojan horse to go with the virus theme. Given the TV show's fondness for Monty Python jokes, it's honestly kind of surprising.

    Agreed that that would be fantastic for a custom Mushlord, but what are you planning to use for the top of his head? A chef's hat painted red?

    There are two things I'm hoping for in a potential successor to Nexo Knights: The popularity of dragons (seriously, if I remember correctly there have been at least two sets featuring dragons, usually more, for the past five or so years) results in LEGO making the theme dragon-focused. There's a reason even Megabloks managed to make a dragon-based line last for over half a decade. LEGO doesn't act stingy with giving female characters sets.

    Personally, besides the TV show having a full season, I'm just hoping that whatever follows up Nexo Knights annoys x105Black even more. That's probably been about 50% of the fun of Nexo Knights for me.

    Having finally gotten around to seeing the leaks, I'm liking the look of these sets. They remind me of Megabloks dragons in a fond manner. Probably just going to pick up Jay's dragon so I have some more pieces for making Nexo Knights MOCs.
  6. Alienator Redux (MOC)

    Internal report: Alienator-type Units Organization: Blacktron Its purpose is causing an unignorable distraction so as to allow the strike force it carries to sneak into secure locations while local forces are occupied dealing with the vehicle. Its heavy armaments are capable of dealing significant damage to most forms of armor, and its thick plating and layered reinforcement makes it difficult to damage. Usually crewed by one armored trooper and two pilots, one of which is redundant and as such is usually part of the strike force. Equipment contained on an average Alienator-type unit is wire cutters, grappling equipment, welding tools and a hand-held circular saw, along with a variety of weapons and in units planned for long-term deployment (although it must be stated that due to their large and noticeable appearance, long term in this context refers to periods of at most 1-2 days), rations. The displayed example's armory included one small plasma pistol, one recoil-neutralized handheld railgun, a blade suited for underhand wielding, and a bashing/disarming ring upon recovery. Play features: removable roof, windshield opens, classic shuffle-walk mechanism, deployable ladder and ball joint mounted stud shooter turrets. This one was rather fun to make. I stole the foot design from Nexo Knights' Stone Colossus, and while I initially planned to make the legs flexible enough to walk normally, once I realized that I could actually use the classic mechanism I just had to. Of course, this is entirely unbuildable in real life due to the fact that I built this with little to no regard for the availability of certain pieces in certain colors. I just really wanted to make something focused mostly on aesthetics. Gallery LXF download (once public)

    What if the seventh Merlok power is for Ava? As a side note, given that Robin is apparently an adult now, I wonder if we'll get an adult version of Ava. Also, it's kind of disappointing that once again, they haven't bothered to recolor or remold Axl's arms.

    Dang. I was expecting the suit to be a dinky little jetpack flyer thingy. That's a pretty decent mini-mech. It's too bad they didn't recolor the mech front to black. Really liking the look of that eye print, though. I hope we get several of those eyes throughout 2018.

    The best part of this picture is that Monstrux's image on the top of the box seems to feature some sort of power armor for him (either that or a large mechanical bird). Are those new, vaguely cone-shaped shooters with green details for the ant things? Or are they just normal stud shooters with the triangular transparent piece the 2017 sets used but in green?
  10. LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    I usually feel that structures can't really be done justice at conventional pricepoints, while vehicles almost always can be. I mean, this year's castle is so small that its donjon is almost a third as wide as the walls, and that's at a $120 pricepoint.
  11. LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    I'm don't understand why everyone wants structures so badly. Personally, I just want a decent-sized set for Macy, and some big monster sets (besides the final monster of the year). I mean, the knights usually get the majority of the sets, and take up most of the higher price points, so having some bigger monster sets would help make Monstrox's army seem less hopelessly outmatched by the knights.
  12. LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    It's a giant V shape that is raised significantly over the shoulders, with a lot of space between the shoulder joint and the actual piece but almost no space for the knights to turn their heads.
  13. LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    Okay, while I wasn't sold on the vampire-like monsters initially, their alternate faces are lovely in their bug-eyed-ness. And I wouldn't be surprised if this was intended to be literal bug-eyed-ness, given how spider-y they look. Their new armor and modified shield piece look pretty nice too. Too bad that the new knight's armor looks so chima-y though. Personally, I'm hoping Monstrox takes a form that resembles his original, but significantly larger and with technology meshed into it in a somewhat random manner, in a pattern like decay on a zombie.

    It looks completely different from Axl's vehicle though. The vehicle from the poster is fairly short, to the point that Axl's vehicle is almost twice as tall. In addition, the detailing on the non-tread part of the poster vehicle is very different from what's visible on Axl's vehicle, and the treads on the poster vehicle are a completely different shape. I'm highly doubtful that poster version was even a prototype design for Axl's vehicle, let alone the same design that's visible in the catalog.
  15. LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    Speaking of that particular poster/concept art, I'm hoping that giant tank tread thing in that screenshot will turn out to be part of a vehicle for Macy. A big tracked vehicle feels like it would fit her pretty well.
