This piece of news has been floating around for quite some time, but seems to have fallen off the radar. LEGO is definitely preparing the way for its next batch of offerings, as its servers have been gradually uploading official images of its summer sets slated to be released in June. We already saw the additional images of this year’s MCU-themed sets, which includes those from LEGO Marvel Superheroes’ Spiderman Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok. This time, Amazon France released additional images of the LEGO Nexo Knights summer sets, with a scheduled release date of June 1. These sets include the vehicles and stone army monsters as seen in Season 4 of the series. LEGO servers don’t include them yet in their database, but since Amazon France has taken the initiative of listing them for pre-order, it will not be long until we see them posted at shop.LEGO.com as well.
I understand that not everyone is that optimistic nor excited about the Nexo Knights theme, with some pointing out to its relatively unattractive, seemingly hodgepodge design only to be worsened by its unappealling, translucent blue and orange color scheme. There are even rumors floating around that LEGO might be pulling the plug on the Nexo Knights theme, even to the extent of not releasing this year’s summer sets. However, as we can see from Amazon’s French website, there is still life on this underrated theme. I guess we just have to wait and see for what the future holds for our heroes of Knighton. For the mean time, let’s take a look at these images.
