Rated 5 out of 5 by SHOXBLOXS Nicer than you'd expect!
I wasn't too sure about this set at first. I have several other Nexo Knights sets and my 4 year old son has all the bad guys. So we have battles with sets!
This is almost like 4 little sets in one.
The build is actually easy and fun. Lots of little detail and loved putting it together for him on my birthday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrankieP NEXO Knights!
Hi, I'm doing this on my parents account as I'm too young. I got this set for my birthday in April, so here goes my first NEXO Knights review...
This was my first Nexo Knights set, and I will DEFINITELY be asking for more for Christmas! The set didn't take too long to build and is really good. You can have the entire Rumble Blade, which actually 'rumbles' on a hard surface, Clay's sword speeder and the Claybots sword breaker bikes. You just unclip Clay's ship from the main part of the build, but the sword breaker bikes are really cool. You just push a lever in the back of the build and they pop off the side! Once the speeder and bikes are off the middle it makes a kind of battle platform with spring loaded missiles. You have to fire them from the back really, otherwise you can't really shoot low. It will still drive along as a kind of platform tank thing so it's cool.
There were quite a few stickers with the build, the largest being on the guards on top of the wheels at the back (with Eagles on), and the smallest being a targeting system or something on the sword breaker bikes. The sword speeder has stickers on the wings, but also has a very cool windscreen that I believe is unique to this set, but I may be wrong. It is made to look like Clay's sword, which looks very cool.
The build is very sturdy. It's a great set for this. I have a one and a half year old cousin with hyper mobility so he can't walk and plays on the floor, and even though he's gentle he's still little so I expected the set to break when he played with it. Actually it was fine, he just needs help getting all the vehicles on and off! Really great build.
Now for the minifigures:
Clay Moorington- He has excellent printing. Cool helmet and armour too. His sword is a bit big but it is in the TV series too. His shield is well designed and comes with three NEXO powers you can scan. He has a double sided face: angry and smiling. No cons to this minifig!
Claybots- Nice build with Clay's symbol on their chest. Their hands are big enough to hold swords which is good. They have a double sided face, one robotic and serious, one robotic and grinning with a tooth missing. For battle I prefer the serious face, when they're not fighting I give them happy faces! Their helmets are really well done, with astronaut helmets (like Benny's from the LEGO movie) with the guards attached on to them. Really clever and cool minifig.
Ash Attacker- The coolest villain in the set. He has monster like printing with sharp shoulder pads and a stone looking helmet with orange horns. He has a chainsaw type weapon and has a double sided head: one serious and once mad! Awesome minifig.
Scurrier- This tiny red guy is, to be honest, wierd! He's all printed with an evil grin and you attach his horns and tail. A bit simple, but fun with a big sword!
Now pros and cons for those who dislike reading lots:
Good printing on minifigs
Nice vehicles on the rumble blade
Just looks epic
A lot of stickers
The villains are outnumbered by MILES!
This set is really good, and it's really cheap for the price I think. It has the best playability in any set I have I think, and it's really worth every penny! Buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ashfall The Splitting Blade
I just got this lego set and built it, it is very cool! Here are the pros and cons:
spring-loaded missile launcher
splits into 4 vehicles
the splitting action doesn't launch the motorcycles forward
there is no vehicle for the ash attacker
not enough smooth plates
There are probably more pros and cons, but this is an awesome set

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ksetrat Things have come a long way
I remember a Knights series when i was a kid, the castles and horses and all the like. Seeing this brought a new spark of intrigue and I couldn't wait to build it.
Things are getting better and better for the partial color blind. The pieces noted in the instructions were easy to pick out and I could easily tell where they were to be placed.
Each bag was well laid out for the instructions and I couldn't wait to see what else this set had in store for me.
The build itself;
Aside from my cat trying to help a bit, the build was enjoyable seeing the different items within coming together. I did get a bit confused in my excitement a couple times which caused me to backtrack a bit, but that is part of the fun in my mind.
Looking at the box, I was a bit concerned about the amount of 'decals' that were visible, i was quite relieved that they were not all stickers and a good portion of the ones that scared me were pre-printed with the design.
the robotic type guard guys are awesome. The different faces fit them quite well. The amount of detail all around shows me just how much more advanced the production is since i was originally buying sets in the late 90s (who am i kidding? i never stopped).
Cons (to me);
while i do always appreciate the extra pieces that come in the sets in case of the smaller ones go missing, i always find it challenging to find a place for the pieces on the set. With most of the extras being an odd number, i couldn't quite 'balance' the Rumbler. I managed to make it so the side cars look like they belong on their respective side. and found a place on the main cart to hold the alternate shields.
It would have been nice to have some kind of a 'clip' or something else to hold the missiles when they are not loaded. I do not want to possibly mess up the spring by leaving them in there constantly, but also want them to not accidentally fall off (refer to cat assistance above).
I cannot wait to get the rest of this series. I thought i was having fun with the Ninjago series... those will have to wait. oohhh, i have dragons to try and attack the castle though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ExplodingZang Nexo Power!
This set is Incredible!
This set delivers a lot it turns into a flying jet sword, two bikes, and a command center/tank. This set is very fun to play with and looks crazy cool! this set comes with 3 Nexo powers! This set is also jam packed with 5 figures!
Clay is spectacular and looks great, he has a giant sword i like to call the Excalitron (Excalibur) and a big sheild.
The two Clay bots are cool and have unique printed eagle emblems.
The Scurrier is kinda cute and ugly at the same time.
The Ash attacker is Wicked Awesome! with his Awesome helmet and cool saw blade.
Set in a Sentence: Its a rolling sword oh Wait! no its a Jet,Bike,Tank Sword!

Rated 5 out of 5 by reluctantprime My favorite Nexo Knights Set...M.A.S.K Nostalgia
I was on the fence about Nexo Knights until I saw a review of this set on You Tube. I instantly had a M.A.S.K flashback and loved this set without even seeing it physically yet. Children of the 80's may remember the M.A.S.K toy line from Kenner and the vehicles that turned into multiple things. I have a feeling the designer here was a child of the 80's.
This set transforms from one primary vehicle to 4 smaller vehicles. All vehicles have great play value and solid builds. I enjoyed the fact that there were limited stickers and the variety of pieces included was impressive.
The Knight named Clay comes heavily armored with his robot minions and the villains included are quite a lot of fun as well. I really enjoyed the build and feel this new line will inspire Castle and Space Lego fans alike.
I have nothing bad to say about this set as the price point was right on and the play value is very very good. I bought this set for myself and couldn't resist flying the jet around the room.
This set will appeal to several ages. I highly recommend picking this set up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by legoman3232 super cool vehicle
I love this set and its minifigures. the play features are really creative and fun I really love how the little motor bikes come off the sides and how the plane comes off and looks like a sword. I love the minifigures they are very fun and the little robots are very cute.
