The fact that the queen and the little girl are both in the Damsel in Distress role, depite the queen now being armoured up (and I seem to remember someone saying that the cartoon shows her as a stronger character than the king) just sucks - I've nothing against having a character in need of rescue but two sets that have that both use female characters, at least one of whom is meant to be able to look out for herself...wow, that's lazy use of stereotypes
hang on a minute, is that-
oh my god it's the brickster
Best guess is that they didn't want to make Dimensions sets based off a theme they didn't know would be successful.
I have my hopes up for Year Three though.
Mixed bag as far as Lego Wave 3 goes. I particularly like 70351; I hope the wing swoop function I suspect it to have after studying the technic joints and mid-hull clearance is indeed present.
Not really a fan of the battle suits. I guess that's all TLG could do with a max brick count to fit the current Ultimate's price point but they just look off. I fear the lack of elbow/knee joints will limit play use as well.
That said, this household owns at least one of each of the previous waves' Nexo sets so I expect most if not all of these will bought when the enevitable discounts start popping up.
I do wonder how successful Nexo knight were commercially. A lot of sets have been heavily discounted of late; I bought most larger sets at 40 to 50% off.
Overall a great theme though. Excellent play opportunity to play together with my boys.
I remember when the Nexo Knights tie-in books came out, someone (@Aanchir?) pointed out that they had various plant-based creatures - I wonder if we'll ever see that in the toy line...
The back section of 70351 I incorrectly assumed was a lever can be combined with 70362, adding a rapid-fire stud shooter to the battle suit:
Back of 70351 - detail
Mr Richmond's already ridiculous Twin Joust drag racer can be combined with the suit to create an over the top mech on two-wheel inline skates:
Back of 70348 - detail. But who's operationg that suit? Those eyes look so familiar...
The epiphany came when I saw the back of 70348. A bot could operate these contraptions as well, and it allows a bot to go toe-to-toe with Burnzie or Sparkks. Well, in my world anyway - who am I to tell anyone how to play.
BTW, 70351 has swing wings indeed. Day one buy probably.
colours are interesting and some pieces are nice.
I expected it might be like 1st wave which looked bad in leaks but good in official pictures but not really.
kind of makes me think of chima which got weaker each year, but maybe next wave is better.
