The second wave of the LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS is upon us and if the first wave is of an indication of how much the boys loved the series, it is safe to say the new Axl’s Tower Carrier set they received had them scrambling to open the box as soon as they saw it.
Mashing the best of the medieval ages with the future - from castles and catapults to hover boards and shields that can be upgraded with special powers - LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS centres around 5 knights from the Kingdom of Knighton. Under the guidance of their mentor, Merlok 2.0, the knights have to come together to defeat the evil jester, Jestro and his army of monsters.
The knights are armed with medieval weapons and armour, but each of their crest contain special powers. Each of the vehicle in the series are a cross between medieval and futuristic designs, which combines LEGO Castle, LEGO Space, and a good dose of imagination and magic.
And much like the previous LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS set the boys received earlier, I decide to let them take over the reins on the blog and let them craft a blog post once again. After all, there is nothing quite relaxing like outsourcing!
Both Ash and Ayd were responsible for every single thing in the post below; the typing of the text, the snapping, editing and uploading of the photos, and layout of the post. Hope you will enjoy their review! Oh, and do read until the very end because they have a surprise for you too!
HELLO EVERYONE! We are back and this time, we have a new LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS set to review.
The set is called Axl's Tower Carrier and our little sister insisted on helping us fix up the set. But because we want to build the main set on our own, we let her build the mini figurines instead. Hahaha!
I think she is still very happy anyway. The set comes with two Axlbots, an Ash Attacker and of course, Axl.
But the figurine that we love is Burnzie, a huge fire monster who has a giant flaming hammer. He is so much bigger than the usual mini figurine!
What is cool about him is one of his hands is actually a disc launcher, which can shoot discs!
But our favourite has to be the actual Tower Carrier, which is a combination of 2 vehicles!
Our Dad says this vehicle reminds him of an aircraft carrier which is a large moving vessel that carries aircraft. In this case, the 'aircraft' is Axl's tower.
Axl's tower can be detached from the main vehicle and can rotate while rolling on its wheels. One side of the tower is a disc shooter and the other side has two spring loaded projectiles.
The main vehicle has six wheels and looks like a huge tank. When the tower is detached, the hollow space in the middle allows the catapult to be used. VERY COOL!
Just like the Fortrex we built the last time, we love the design of the Tower Carrier too. How does LEGO come up with all these wonderful vehicle designs?
And as you can see, we could not resist putting together a LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS story with our 2 sets. And our sister also could not resist joining in too.
Well, as long as she does not bring her LEGO Friends into the story! LOL.
