But in case (and before) I get burned at the nexo-stake, or mistaken for an unbelieber in any opening salvos in a short-lived and quickly forgotten 'slow-news' war, I would like to quickly point out my post above was the usual brand of irreverence for entertainment purposes, and not a statement of position.
At present time, any such judgement, be it for or against, shall be reserved until such a time when more is known. ;o)
I love the Jestro minifigure! Too bad the whole line wasn't designed like him instead of these futuristic designs. It could have been the coolest Castle sets ever.
It's interesting how LEGO has been trying to change the proportions of minifigures as they did with the character on the top right. First it was the giant fists they used in Chima, now a whole torso. I wonder what a HULK would look like if they did something like that.
I hope I don't have to buy that big set just to get Jestro, though some parts of it look cool I don't like the overall look of it. The "demon" giant in the front looks cool and the trans orange chains and wheels. This ling definitely would have been a whole lot cooler if it had been strictly medieval.
I like it a lot! It is so whacky.
Where did you find those pics? Maybe the horse has a transparent wheels in it, like the new SW First Order Snowspeeder!?!
Those minifigs make me smile with their comical expressions, especially the green 'wolfpack' knight (or is it the fox from knights kingdom II ?!). That jester is fantastic, and that 'bull' knight with his broad shoulders looks cool.
I do understand that a lot of people who hated the 'jellybean' knights (from KK II) will hate this too. Too bad for them. I can see this theme getting as popular as Ninjago.
I don't really know why but the Jokester just isn't doing anything for me, so the 'Joe Swanson' (top right, lol) is my personal highlight of the bunch.
But in general the good guys' shaping looks a bit on the feminine side, the chainmail sections looking a little like they're wearing rocky horror picture show fishnet body stocking/suspenders type get-ups, or something. :oP
Whilst the red sections of the girl fig immediately conjured images of her having been skinned hellraiser style. :ox Ouch.
There might be some nice parts though, the visors look interesting.
I'm surprised by the low number of minifigs. the Jestro's mobile seems to have only 2 (3 if you count the lava golem), the castle has 7, but only 4 of them are proper minifigs.
So your son suffers from Coulrophobia. You did not call your kid by any chance Cosmo Kramer did you?
That Joe Swanson/American Dad of yours appears to be called 'Axl' and his body proportions remind me even more of Johny Bravo.

(Or shoots arrows.)
But they are going to announce a new character named 'Whitney Rangefighter'...
Massive dump of cache pics it looks like from CM4Sci, even more a few entries below that.
Despite the blue and gray mashup, I think I'm turning a corner on these. That King Mech looks like a beast!
Pffft! Anyone saying 'they made a balrog' deserves dumping into a gunge tank, or slapping with a wet fish, but most importantly being forced to play with megablocks for the rest of time... cos they're just the same, right? Right? Exactly.
The chima ice mammoth was not a mumak, a nexo lava monster is not the balrog. What they are is bloody annoying. LOL
I sometimes get the impression that Lego at some point post-lotr realised they could have, perhaps should have, when subsequent designs drop the occasional, almost apologetic, nod at such missed opportunities, as though a remedy to tease out the money they left in people's wallets.
But that rock monster is to the balrog, as megablocks is to lego... IT SHALL NOT PASS!
I'm pretty pleased with the extra castle tower that can link up to the Fortrex! And the mini-Fortrex polybag is pretty cute!
The king's mech and whatever that big monster is are pretty epic-looking! The big ol' swordmobile and goofy chariot drawn by the two chomping lava balls are interesting and look like they have some interesting functions.
Really impressed with this theme overall... but still a bit hesitant to commit to collecting it until I get a feel for how expensive it and the other stuff on my wish list will be. If I can manage to swing some review copies of sets like I did this year, that'll take some of the bite out of next year's lineup, but hard to know what might be worth inquiring about until we've gotten pics of the themes I'm already determined to collect (Ninjago, Bionicle, and Elves).
This would have been a cool concept, though obviously already a Japanese one. Giant fighting creatures and robots. Evil side conjuring giant creatures of rock and flame with dark magic and the good creating giant mechs with scientific technology to battle them.
