The much-anticipated LEGO Nexo Knights collection is an imaginative mash-up of the past and the future, creating a world where valiant knights fight with high-tech robots.

The Nexo Knights collection will comprise 14 new LEGO sets. It features spectacularly designed creations, including an armored castle that travels on rolling treads like a tank and a Mad Max-like siege machine. The play sets also come with a designated app, where kids can interact with Merlok, a hologram wizard. In the app, players can unlock unique virtual powers for their LEGO characters and collect special Nexo Knights shields using codes found on the Nexo Knights boxes and print ads.

LEGO Nexo Knights combines two popular themes in kids' culture to develop an imaginative scenario where knights joust and robots battle.
