We’re celebrating our 20th episode, and it’s been an incredible journey so far. In this episode we meet Troy Chelin, showing off his collection of Nexo Knights sets.
Troy started collecting Nexo Knights not long after his son was born. Callum received a gift for one of his birthdays; however, it was Troy who ended up playing with it and really loving the detail in the minifigures. He bought a few books, outlining the range and explaining the Nexo Knights universe.
Troy decided to try and collect most of the sets and is very proud that he managed to source most of it locally. The 2016 range, in particular, drew attention with the blue and luminous orange pieces.
Nexo Knights is a fantasy-based Castle theme. Unlike its predecessors that contained typical medieval elements, Nexo Knights give those elements a futuristic look. The theme combines both technological and magical aspects and features two factions. On the one side, the heroes being the Knights, and the villains being magical evil creatures.
Nexo Knights come with an app you can download on your smart device. Scan any shield, and it will give you instant superpowers within the game to defeat the evil army, lead by Jestro. Scan any three shields in certain combinations, and Clay, Macy, Lance, Aaron, and Axl. Together, under their mentor, Merlok 2.0 becomes unstoppable.
To Troy, the Nexo Knights range and the rich story behind it provides many hours of fun with his son, Callum, and they enjoy building and playing together. It reminds Troy of his childhood.
Join us in this brief overview of Nexo Knights, an incredibly rich theme and storyline.
