    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Look at Aaron's vehicle. Robin is off to the side. You can recognize him by the helmet. Given that they seem to be moving towards sci-fi with a castle footnote, maybe some sort of spinning mace tank could work.

    Loving the look of all of these. Not sure if the translucent villain color is neon green or Atlantis green, it looks the most like the latter to me. The Berserker Bomber is pretty much my dream Blacktron vehicle (let's admit it, it's basically a modern version of 6981 Aerial Intruder), but I'm sad to see Macy getting the least of all the heroes once again. The Twinfector is gloriously tron-y and has some really nice shaping. Too bad it uses those power miners wheels. I have so many of those that I've really grown to hate them. Not sure what to think of Lance's vehicle, which appears to be some sort of hover-jousting vehicle. At least it's an interesting and pretty reasonable and surprisingly unexplored concept. The spider minifigure in that set uses rather bad-looking pieces for the legs, though, somewhat ruining the look, so meh. I kinda wish LEGO would introduce a specialist, more in-scale with minifigures themselves, part or group of 2-3 parts for spider-bodied minifigures. They crop up so often that seems kind of like an obvious thing to do, especially given how often minor, once-off characters get entire specialized and complicated molds to themselves. Aaron's flyer seems nice, but the blades seem very small and the obvious bike-dropping function seems very out of place due to its wheels sticking out. They're not even the right shape to give the impression of jet boosters. At least the villain mini-flyer looks stylish with what appear to be the superhero bolt pieces decorating it; not sure about the corrupted bot yet. The mech seems to suffer from being forced to accomodate the anatomy of the smaller mech, with those dinky little arms sticking out. The one open segment of the tri-shield looks very out of place, too. I like the sword-railgun thing, though, and the combined shield and blaster looks fairly decent, actually. I'm hoping that's not actually Monstrox 2.0, though, because while it seems likely, it's going to be really underwhelming if LEGO doesn't bother to produce a decent model of his final form, as they have done with every big ninjago threat to date (Great Devourer or Overlord Dragon anyone?) Axl's tank is pretty boring-looking, but it looks like it'll have a lot of functions, like a less visually impressive but more functional Vermin Vaporizer, such as the mini-vehicle releasing function, the tool storage on the side (incidentally, I'm liking the use of tr. orange Bouldron bodies as the tread axles), and the dual cannons, and if the dual cockpits are any indication, presumably the middle section will detach as a flyer. Again, the little flyer is pretty nice looking. I'm interested in seeing how it fires off the little ant things. I find it difficult to comment on Jestro's redesign without seeing the finalized thing, though. Actually, no one else seems to have mentioned the ant things. I for one really wonder if those are intended to be white in the final product or if they're an unfinished mold or both. At least there appear to be some in every set, unlike with previous villains (seriously, the number of globlins we got was pathetic). Here's hoping they'll also make some varieties and make a battle pack with a lot of them in it. Bonus points if they somehow add app integration to them.

    That's just a cropped version of one of Legozebra's pictures, specifically this one: https://www.flickr.com/photos/legozebra/36251209293/.

    Personally, I'm more interested in the weird shark-like face visible on the left side of the picture showing the Piranha. I wonder if that'll be an exclusive set.
  14. LEGO Nexo Knights 2018

    Huh. Ok. At this point, there are just too many trusted sources of leaked information on this site for me to keep track of, to be honest.

    I'm going to guess and say that these leaks have a 50% chance of being fake, 25% of being about slime/poison monsters, 20% of being about insectile monsters and 5% chance of being the swamp-themed plant and fungus villains we saw. Although, if these villains turn out to be black along with that really dark green, I hope they have a brighter secondary and maybe even tertiary color to compensate for having dark primary and translucent colors. Preferably an unusual color combination. Otherwise they'll be kind of boring relatively speaking, given the brighter color schemes of the year 1 and 2 villains. Maybe a blue shade for the secondary and yellow for the tertiary? That'd look nice, and it'd be kind of fitting if these are indeed insect/generic arthropod-thing that is insistently referred to as a bug-themed, given that there are some real insects with a color scheme like that. For example, a kind of cuckoo wasp:
