I was not originally goign to buy into Nexo Knights, yet despite that this set was one I had wanted from the beginning regardless of the theme. As 90% of all Lego mechs come from Ninjago, I wanted to see what they would do with a mech from a different theme. I felt it looked very promising and a good buy. Upon buying this set, I was not disappointed. The mech is unique in certain asepcts and does not look too similar to any mechs Ninjago has yet released. However, there are many quirks to this set I will cover in the cons section. Overall, I'd say the set is a very good buy and, if you are a parent, it is a good set for your kids to play with. As always, I'll go through the pros and cons of this set. At the end, I will list any modifications that are decent to add to the set, all of which that take minimal pieces and simply a few minutes to build into the model. (Cons) I will begin with some of the cons of the model. When I began to move and pose the mech, I found that there was a substantial weight to the left arm, or 'shield' arm. The detachable shield element is very heavy and causes the model to lean towards the left without careful balancing and arrangement. I personally doesn't mind, but for those who like to fling it around and then set it back up, they will find that the legs will slide apart and it was fall to the left. Speaking of the legs, they are also an issue with the model. The legs are unique and have a good build to them, but seem to slide apart when placed on a smooth surface. The legs have one friction adder joint each, yet they are not enough to hold the model up on it's own. The feet also have limited mobility and cannot move forward or back, only rotate to the left or right. This makes trying to walk the mech awkward, usually resulting in the legs spreading out. The box shows the shield portion detaching and becoming a flier, but that leaves a spindly left arm with very limited posing for the two cannons. There also are some odd gaps in the model, specifically around the knees, shoulders and elbows. (Pros) There are, however, many things this model does very well. The shield detaching as a flier is a very cool action that allows you to expand your playing field and give some support to your king. The 'sword' arm is also very well done, with a nice and hefty sword that feels like it would do some very decent damage to the battlefield. Having a place to store the weapons of your figures is always a bonus, and this model has places for both shields and swords. The use of the Hero Factory head mould is clever and makes the mech feel much more human. The two flap pieces on the back are awkward when down, but when they are turned upwards, it makes the mech feel like a bird about to pounce down on its prey. The size of the mech is also done well, standing large enough to feel massive but also bulky enough to feel like a warrior. The figures are also very well done, getting King Halbert with a very beautiful golden armor printing and one of the kingdom's bots that is both cute and unique at the same time. The flamethrower is a good figure as well, and I do like his little emplacement that he has. I recommend to parents not loading the actual stud shooters and having your child use it for imaginary play; they go everywhere and will be hard to pick up. Without them, the setup is still very good and feels like a small model on it's own. Overall, I was satisfied and delighted with the mech. It definitely has some quirks that prevent it from being a full 5 star model, but I think it has enough positives that the negatives are negated. I recommend this set and would say that if your child (or yourself) want to have something they can physically pick up and move around, this set is a very good fit for them. (Modifications) There was only one very tiny modification that I did to this set. As shown in the picture, I took off the black piece with the odd 'wind up' handle and placed two gray half pins into the two slots. This allows you to hook the sword up to the back and still lets you place your knight weapons on the mech itself.Play ExperienceAverage rating3out of 5 starsLevel of DifficultyAverage rating2out of 5 starsValue for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 starsBuild Time: 1 hrs 15 minsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?45
- over 3 years agoAverage rating4out of 5 starsCool set- very pleasedGlowstonewarlord | 25-34I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThe first thing I am going to say is that this is a good set,but I honestly didn't buy it at full price. I am an American citizen who bought it in Canada, (the exchange rate is awesome right now), and though I am not disappointed, I wouldn't buy it at full price. It is a good set, and they REALLY did a good job with detail on this wave of the new NEXO KNIGHTS. But, there are a few easily fixed problems buyers should be prepared for. First, the sword arm is quite flexible, which I like, but the "shield/vehicle arm is a disappointment. It can't move like the sword arm, which defeats the purpose of it being a shield because it can't raise up to block anything. This can be easily fixed. The crossbow is a little hard for the flamethrower guy to hold. Other than that, it is a sturdy, strong, amazing, detailed set. You really outdid yourself this time, LEGO!Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 starsLevel of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 starsValue for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 starsBuild Time: 1 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?45
- over 3 years agoAverage rating4out of 5 starsKing Halbert's MechTitaniumSkylor2015 | 14-18Purchased for: SelfThe King's Mech is a medium sized set that highlights the leader of the kingdom-King Halbert. The mech looks like a gigantic knight with a transparent orange "helmet" piece that encloses the king inside so he can safely maneuver around. Like most other mechs, the right hand holds a large sword which has a nice design but maybe an unnecessary sticker. The mech doesn't really have another hand as a decent-sized flyer is attached to its arm. The flyer can fire two studs from stud shooters and can be detached when you please. The mech is shaped well overall and is pretty sturdy. The monsters in this set get a large crossbow. This crossbow uses the spider leg pieces from 2014, the new crossbow shooters and a bunch of other pieces in the dark brown color. Flamethrower is the name of the monster in this set and he reminds me a lot of Eyezor from Ninjago-it's probably the black mohawk. The other figures in this set are King Halbert himself and one of the kingdom's bots. Finally, 2 nexo powers are included. I think this set is a success and will probably be very popular because of the king and price. I like the mech, especially the shaping and the knight helmet piece that protects the operator. I wish the model used a different weapon like a mace or axe because I feel swords are way overused in Lego mechs. To give you an idea how many mechs use swords: "Kai's fire mech", "Samurai Mech", "The Destuctoid" (which is kinda a mech), "Anacondrai Battle Mech", "Titan Mech Battle", and the golden mech from "The Temple of Light". I know all those sets were Ninjago but you get the point. The flyer looks a little out of place but is great for play and the mech stands well on its own. I don't have a strong opinion towards this set so if you like what you hear, purchase it!Play ExperienceAverage rating4out of 5 starsLevel of DifficultyAverage rating1out of 5 starsValue for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 starsBuild Time: 25 minsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?45
