It looks like we have a new LEGO Nexo Knights Battle Pod polybag coming soon. Just2Good over on Twitter has posted what appears to be a Battle Pod similar to The LEGO Batman Movie one but with a color swap. The Battle Pod also includes a Knight along with some accessories including a sword and a Nexo Power. There’s no word when we expect to see it released as a promotion but we know one is coming.
Here’s a very interesting rumor coming out of Brickset regarding the future of the LEGO Nexo Knights theme. They are reporting that Blocks magazine has gotten information that the theme is “being cancelled and the summer sets may not even be released.” There was no source given and I haven’t heard anything about the theme being cancelled from the usual sources so I am somewhat skeptical about it.
We did see the summer 2017 sets at the New York Toy Fair so we know there are sets coming but that also doesn’t mean much. This could also mean the wave will have a short shelf life and be fazed out, similar to LEGO BIONICLE and LEGO Mixels in their last waves. These sets were only sold at LEGO Brand Stores, [email protected], and some specialty stores.
The LEGO Nexo Knights theme was the latest “Big Bang” theme and usually has a three year run with the exception of LEGO Ninjago which surpassed everyone’s expectations and is going on their seventh year. If the theme is actually cancelling after two years, it’s speculation that it not performing as well as LEGO expected.
For me personally, I think the theme is pretty cool and I really dig the color schemes which reminded me of the Ice Planet 2002 theme. There were also lots of new parts introduced, the shield piece for example, which fans liked and gave tons of inspiration for MOCs.
Again, these are only rumors until there’s definite proof the theme is being cancelled so don’t panic just yet. We should start hearing rumors about winter sets in a few months so we’ll see if LEGO Nexo Knights will have another wave being released next year.
What do you guys think? Do you or your kids enjoy the theme?
Update: LEGO Designer Mark Stafford has confirmed that this rumor is false.

The LEGO Batman Movie
Here’s something that’s new coming for 2017. LEGO will be releasing Wave 1 of some blind bags for the Nexo Knights theme called Combo NEXO Powers (70372) for fans to collect. Each blind bag will have five mystery NEXO powers which you can scan into the MERLOK 2.0 app. This first wave has 35 to collect so I’m assuming there will be more waves coming in the future.
I’m hearing they are starting to show up now at Target stores for $3.99 which is a little bit on the high side but if you’re a Nexo Knights fan, this may be something for you.
Furthermore, Just2Good has found some and has done an opening for them if you want to check it out.
Collect and combine the NEXO Powers to defeat Monstrox!
Open the bag to reveal the five ‘mystery’ NEXO Powers, then create your own way of defeating the enemy by combining three NEXO Powers into one. Place the NEXO Powers in the included Combo NEXO Power shield, then scan into the free LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS™ MERLOK 2.0 app and bring your creation to life in the digital game.
Features five mystery NEXO Powers, each in a different color (red, green, blue, yellow and white), plus a Combo NEXO Power shield.
Scan the shields to create your own combination to defeat Monstrox and the Stone monsters in the LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS™: Merlok 2.0 app.
Connect Combo NEXO Power shields together with the connecting elements and build your own unique structures.
More than 35 NEXO Powers to collect!
Also includes an inspiration and collectability leaflet.
This set offers an age-appropriate build and play experience for ages 7-14.
Download the free LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS™: MERLOK 2.0 app to your smartphone or tablet. Ask your parents’ permission.
Watch all your favorite NEXO KNIGHTS™ episodes on Cartoon Network.
PLEASE NOTE: Only 5 of 35 individual NEXO Powers in each ‘mystery’ bag. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate requests for specific NEXO Powers.
