    Toy Fair 2018: Nexo Knights
    Hot Bionicle NewsWednesday, February 28th, 2018 at 12:10pm by Andrew, BZPower News Manager

    In 2018, Nexo Knights is entering its third and apparently final year, with only six sets being on display and none of them being overly large. The LEGO PR rep we talked to said they were not aware of any further Nexo Knights sets coming out this year, although they didn't specifically say it was canceled. Still, looking at previous themes like Legends of Chima, it seems to fit their usual three-year pattern for big-bang themes. I'm sure many of us will be sad to see it go, but it does make room for something cool and new to take its place! For now though, let's look at the current Nexo Knights offerings for this year!

    Nexo Knights

    Toy Fair 2018 Nexo Knights 02 Toy Fair 2018 Nexo Knights 01

    72001 Lance's Hover Jouster

    Toy Fair 2018 Nexo Knights 03

    217 pieces. Age 7+
    $19.99 (USD) $27.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    As the smallest set in the wave there's not a lot going on here, but it does look like it has some nice parts, especially in the slopes area.

    72002 Twinfector

    Toy Fair 2018 Nexo Knights 07

    191 pieces. Age 7+
    $19.99 (USD) $27.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    Bikes and trikes are nothing new in Nexo Knights or other themes, but this one splits in half, offering something new and unique. The little tech spider that appears here and in other sets this year is a pretty cool new part as well.

    72003 Berserker Bomber

    Toy Fair 2018 Nexo Knights 08

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

    This set seems like it's got a lot of value in it, with a vehicle, a mech, and a little battle suit for Macy. There looks to be lots of playability in it too, which is great.

    72004 Tech Wizard Showdown

    Toy Fair 2018 Nexo Knights 04

    506 pieces. Age 8+
    $39.99 (USD) $54.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    Mechs have been pretty standard in Nexo Knights with at least one per year, but this may be the first time we've gotten a mech for a mech. The main robot fits the battle suits from last year, which is a nice throwback feature. Plus we get good versus evil digital wizards, which are key to the story!

    72005 Aaron's X-bow

    Toy Fair 2018 Nexo Knights 05 Toy Fair 2018 Nexo Knights 12

    569 pieces. Age 8+
    $49.99 (USD) $69.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    Another set with great play features that looks cool too! I like how Aaron's VTOL also acts as a dropship for the motorcycle, bringing it right to the middle of the battle.

    72006 Axl's Rolling Arsenal

    Toy Fair 2018 Nexo Knights 06 Toy Fair 2018 Nexo Knights 09 Toy Fair 2018 Nexo Knights 10 Toy Fair 2018 Nexo Knights 11

    604 pieces. Age 8+
    $59.99 (USD) $79.99 (CAD)
    Available in January

    As the biggest set in the line, there's quite a few things packed in here. The arsenal has a remote-controlled tank that comes out of the front and a flyer that can pop off the top. The little bad guy glider is alright too although clearly no match for Axl!

    I'm interested to hear what you all have to say about the end of Nexo Knights - are you going to miss it or are you looking forward to something new? Let us know in the Talkback! Of course we have plenty more Toy Fair 2018 coverage for everyone to check out right here, with more coming soon!
