EDIT: missed the page break; didn't realize this had already been answered!
No, they're not the same. 271602 is smaller than the full size ones in #70314, #70316 and #70325:
Foil 271602 on the left, Macy's bike from #70314 on the right as it's colour scheme resembles the foil pack the most.
While we're at it, let's answer your follow-up question, @flakmaniak:
#70325's in storage and #70321 is still not built but the point is more than clear. The larger horses are the same except for some elements having a different colour.
Kid Clay rides #271602. Cheeky Lance is on the #70316 full-size Hover Horse and Macy's miffed because the dress her father insisted on wearing is unsuitable for Hover Horse riding.
But anyway, thank you. I will look into the full-sized hover-horses, rather than the mini version. Hopefully BrickLinking up a few will prove easy.
I just quickly busted out my ghetto photography background (i.e. some A4 paper) and camera to make a quick pic. Trans bricks were already there because of recent PAB runs.
Overall, I quite like the look of this wave. Seems like the transformation features that are often part of Nexo Knights sets are in this wave too. Wondering what role the evil eye on top has though; likely a major characteristic of the main bad guy as the baddies in this set also feature a similar eye as part of their torso print:
I particularly like the way the new spider element+round stud can be attached to and fired from a stud shooter. As a parent of two KFOLs I'm used to finding studs all over the house, these will be just that little bit easier to find. The gold shields ("Merlok Powers") are now confirmed as well.
Still no official Macy-with-hair though :(
I do need to catch up on the series. I watched the first season pretty regularly, but have fallen way behind.
Mech-ception was the first thing I thought as well. Really like the set even with the poseability limitations.
it looks like the medieval theme has been dropped completely, and the dichotomy between the futuristic, technological good guys and the medieval, magic bad guys. it's kind of the new space theme now I guess.
Also Monstrox doesn’t take over Jestro. It’s more or less just temptation leading him astray, rather than Monstrox completely taking him over.
Macy is still absent from the sets we've seen so far, but it's worth noting that while Brickset only has six sets listed for Nexo Knights 2018 at the moment, there are SEVEN golden Merlok powers shown on the back of the new boxes. So there would seem to be at least one set yet to be announced — probably either a later release or a store exclusive. Hopefully it also includes Ava!
Ava's heavily involved with technology. Would be a great plot element if she gets infected. I mean, 72001 contains an infected Dennis. Maybe something goes utterly wrong in Knighton Castle...
And where are the location-based toys? Why all-new vehicles all the time? Are they being leased?
And there's new vehicles every year for the same reason there's new sets in general every year—because new things sell. :P
that reminds me of a level design tip, you may have already experienced when playing, between a map where the use of colors and geometry is such that you understand immediately how you should apprehend it, and a map where the designer went so heavy on small details, that you have a hard time making sense of the whole, especially in a fast game.
Kids may not be too put off by the clashing colours, but parents like me sure are.
I grew up on 80's SF cartoons and decades of RTS games so I'm partial towards futuristic tanks; hoping I can buy a few of these extra when they're on offer so the Royal Guard can have an artillery battalion. Lances will be replaces by extra spring-loaded shooters though.
