New LEGO Theme: Nexo Knights Officially Revealed
A new LEGO Theme will hit the market in January 2016.
LEGO has finally made its big announcement at this year’s NYCC, which is the reveal of the new LEGO Nexo Knights theme. This is LEGO’s next big pitch, which is expected to become a rapid success. Just like other LEGO announcements and , such as Ninjago and Chima, not only will fans have access to a wide range of sets (14 in the first wave), but a TV show as well which will air later this year in December. Not only that, but there will also be a companion app called LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS: MERLOK 2.0.
In regards to the storyline behind the theme, LEGO Nexo Knights is set in the futuristic high-tech world of the Kingdom of Knighton. There are five young knights (Clay, Macy, Axl, Lance, Aaron) who will go in a quest to battle Jestro, who is the main antagonist of the theme. Jestro also counts with a sidekick named the Book of Monsters as well as a Lava Monster Army.
The first wave of sets is scheduled to be released in January 2016. There will be a total of 14 sets which will range in price from $9.99 USD all the way to $99.99 USD. As per usual, the more expensive a set is, the bigger and better it is. Right now, the only official set images that we have are of two of the sets:
70316 Jestro’s Evil Mobile – 658 pieces – 350AED
70317 Fortrex – 1140 pieces – 450AED
