    Toy Fair 2017: Nexo Knights
    Hot Bionicle NewsWednesday, February 22nd, 2017 at 4:48pm by Andrew, BZPower News Manager

    Today we're moving on to LEGO Nexo Knights in our ever-continuing Toy Fair 2017 coverage. The sci-fi and fantasy mashup has made it to its second year and has a variety of sets out now and in August to appease its fans. With lots of new bad guys, our heroes will need all new vehicles to save the day and protect the kingdom. Let take a look at what we're getting!

    Nexo Knights

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 01

    70347 King's Guard Artillery

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 05

    98 pieces. Age 7+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    One of the smallest sets in the range, the artillery doesn't even include one of the main knights! It does have one of the six-stud-shooters originally from Bionicle and a nice collection of other parts, but it's not all that exciting.

    70348 Lance's Twin Jouster

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 09

    216 pieces. Age 8+
    $19.99 (USD) $24.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    I really like the bad guy in this set, with his cloaked head and ghostly lower body. The jouster has some interesting parts usage and looks to be fairly heavy with Technic elements.

    70349 Ruina's Lock & Roller

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 07

    208 pieces. Age 8+
    $19.99 (USD) $24.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    I love the front of this build, which looks like a gargoyle or something along those lines. Make sure you take note of the new 1x2 plate with a rock outcropping shape coming out of the top.

    70350 The Three Brothers

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 08

    266 pieces. Age 8+
    $29.99 (USD) $39.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    Another bad guy set, this one has lots of personality. The two minifigs have a cool new armor that makes them look like ogres. I'm guessing the vehicle is the third brother, and looks like a massive rock monster. Possibly my favorite part are the ball joints with the evil printed faces on them.

    70351 Clay's Falcon Fighter Blaster

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 10

    523 pieces. Age 8+
    $49.99 (USD) $64.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    The aviation enthusiast in me likes this set the most of all the first half sets for Nexo Knights. In addition to looking like a cool fighter jet, it also has a very Ice Planet 2001 or almost a Space Police I feel. The winged-villain is great too and makes full use of the Mixel joints for some good poseability.

    70352 Jestro's Headquarters

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 11

    840 pieces. Age 9+
    $89.99 (USD) $109.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    This set seems like the stuff of nightmares. The giant minifig Jestro head, complete with jester hat, is creepy but well-designed. The rest of the vehicle looks like a castle on wheels, with lots of play features added on for lots of fun.

    70353 The Heligoyle

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 16 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 17 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 18 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 19 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 20

    318 pieces. Age 8+
    $29.99 (USD) $39.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    Among the smallest of the summer sets, the Heligoyle appears to be what happens when you mix a helicopter and a gargoyle. I love the detailing on the head, and the Technic frame makes it nice and swooshable.

    70354 Axl's Rumble Maker

    393 pieces. Age 8+
    $39.99 (USD) $49.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    TF17_AxlAxlRumbleMaker

    70355 Aaron's Rock Climber

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 21 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 22 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 23 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 24 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 25 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 26

    598 pieces. Age 8+
    $59.99 (USD) $74.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    This might be my favorite of the summer Nexo Knights sets. I really like the little rock monster and the new helmet on the bad guy is fantastic. The rock climber itself combines earth blue and lime green very well, and has a very sleek shaping to it. Plus, we all know Aaron is the coolest knight!

    70356 The Stone Colossus of Ultimate Destruction

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 27 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 28 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 29 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 30 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 31 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 32 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 33 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 34 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 35 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 36 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 37

    785 pieces. Age 8+
    $69.99 (USD) $89.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    There's a fun play feature on this set that allows you to make the wings flap, likely causing a tornado to blow your enemies away. As cool as this set looks though, it doesn't seem very poseable, which is sad. It does have some nice detailing, especially in the face, and lots of other play features such as the prison cells in its legs.

    70357 Knighton Castle

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 38 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 39 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 40 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 41 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 42 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 43 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 44 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 45 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 46

    1426 pieces. Age 9+
    $129.99 (USD) $159.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    The biggest and best Nexo Knights set we're getting this year, there's a lot to like about it. My favorite parts are probably the Merlok 2.0 mech and the king and queen, but there are so many details here like the armory, dining room, and bedroom (with Axl's bed being twice as wide). Most importantly, it seems like it will be a fun build.

    70358 Aaron's Stone Destroyer

    251 pieces. Age 8+
    $24.99 (USD) $29.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    This set was unfortunately not on display.

    70359 Lance vs. Lightning

    257 pieces. Age 8+
    $24.99 (USD) $29.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    This set was unfortunately not on display.

    70361 Macy's Bot Drop Dragon

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 13 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 14 Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 15

    153 pieces. Age 7+
    $14.99 (USD) $17.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    Macy gets a cute little robot dragon this summer, who has a simple build but a cool selection of parts.

    70362 Battle Suit Clay & 70363 Battle Suit Macy

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 02

    79 pieces. Age 7+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in January
    66 pieces. Age 7+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    Replacing the 'ultimate' knights from last year, this year we get battle suits. These knightly mechs make use of both small and large ball joints to provide a large range of motion.

    70364 Battle Suit Aaron & 70365 Battle Suit Axl

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 03

    80 pieces. Age 7+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in January
    88 pieces. Age 7+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    In addition to the base collectibility, each Battle Suit comes with a Nexogon shield and five Nexo Knights powers. The shield is a really interesting piece with lots of connection points.

    70366 Battle Suit Lance

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 04

    83 pieces. Age 7+
    $9.99 (USD) $12.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    I've run out of things to say about the battle suits, so we'll have to end with pointing out Lance's rollerblades - he really is that lazy, isn't he?

    70372 Combo NEXO Powers Wave 1

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 06

    10 pieces. Age 7+
    $3.99 (USD) $3.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    Since you won't be able to get all the powers from just buying the Battle Suits and other sets, LEGO is turning to the blind bag route, releasing 35 powers in bags of five and encouraging you to collect them all.

    70373: Combo NEXO Powers Wave 2

    Toy Fair 2017 Nexo Knights 12

    10 pieces. Age 7+
    $3.99 (USD) $3.99 (CAD)
    Available in August

    If 35 powers wasn't enough, there will be 35 more in the summer to keep you buying!

    That's all there is for the Nexo Knights this year. There's a lot of cool sets with a selection of new parts and recolors. This theme seems like it's still going strong after a year. Now that you've made it to the end, you can share your thoughts on the sets with us in the Talkback, tell us what you want to see next by voting right here and checking out the rest of our Toy Fair 2017 coverage!
