Nexo Knights is a theme introduced in 2016.

History[edit]

Nexo Knights was officially announced at 2015 New York Comic Con. The sets 70317 Fortrex and 70316 Jestro's Evil Mobile were displayed at the convention to help promote the new theme. The shows first episodes aired in mid December 2015 followed by the official release of the sets in January of 2016.

70317 The Fortrex

The story of Nexo Knights takes place in the Kingdom of Knighton, a futuristic, high-tech world. Nexo Knights follows five young knights in their quest to battle Jestro, his sidekick, the Book of Monsters, and their Monster Armies. Heroic knight, Clay Moorington, leads the band of knights, including alpha superstar Lance Richmond, hipster Aaron Fox, Macy Halbert, a princess who would rather be a knight, and Axl, the giant. Together, under the tutelage of Knights' Academy mentor and Great Digital Wizard, Merlok 2.0, they join forces to defeat the enemy.

Fifty total sets were released in 2016, including small ultimate sets and Jestro's Volcano Lair. Each set includes new Nexo Powers for the Nexo Knights app. The story that year involved the knights fighting Jestro's Lava Army over the magic books. Jestro would use these books to unlock more monsters.

In the 2017 story Monstrox, the spirit within the Monster Book of Monsters, emerges and creates a new stone army. Thirty Five sets released in this year show the knights gaining new sleeker armour and new vehicles. Nexo Power packs were introduced as a new way to get the collectible Nexo Power shields. Some key sets include Jestro's Headquarters and Knighton Castle.

In 2018 LEGO announced the discontinuation of the theme.

A companion television show, app and online game have been released.

The LEGO Group today announced LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS,™ a new, original LEGO property depicting a medieval kingdom set in a futuristic world where five young, brave knights “download” special powers to their shields in order to battle the royal court’s evil Jestro and a cast of monsters to restore peace. The story comes to life through LEGO building sets, an episodic television and a digital gaming app that fuels story-driven gameplay. The property launches later this year, with products available starting January 1, 2016. LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS characters, story, app experience and two iconic building sets from the collection will be previewed to New York Comic Con attendees, Thursday, October 8 through Sunday, October 11 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center (Booth #1436).

“Inspired by insights to meet the emerging needs of today’s kids, LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS juxtaposes a timeless world of medieval knights with a futuristic twist in a captivating story that invites children to explore LEGO play in a whole new way,” said Casper Thingholm of the LEGO Group. “LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS offers children the rewarding building experiences they know and love, amplified by digital enhancements that merge what today’s kids love: self-expression, strong characters, deep content-driven story and digital gaming.”

Story Set in the futuristic, high-tech world of the Kingdom of Knighton, LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS follows five young knights in their quest to battle Jestro, his sidekick, the Book of Monsters, and their Lava Monster Army.

Reception[edit]

LEGO CEO Bali Padda has declared Nexo Knights a success, though it did not quite meet the company's hopes for its popularity.[1]

Nexo Knights has been criticized by fans of traditional LEGO Castle for being too much like a Space theme to properly integrate with previous Castle products. LEGO designer Mark Stafford has revealed that, despite this, Nexo Knights is internally considered a Castle theme its concept performed better in the testing stage than more traditional takes.[2]
