The thing I dislike the most about Nexo Knights is the unessecary backlash it's getting. It's one thing if people don't like the sets, but a lot of the reasons are just getting ridiculous.
It's copying Bionicle
Yes, because the concept of colored heroes with collectible objects of power is a concept Bionicle has the sole credit of creating. It's totally not something that has been around before and is still a very common practice.
Lego is shoving it down our throats
They're really not. Both Bionicle and Nexo Knights have a sizable display at the Lego store and Toy stores, it's general retailers that tend to crowd the shelves. Now why could that be?
Nexo Knights is a promising new theme that the store purchased a larger opening surplus much like they did for Big Bang themes before like Ninjago or Bionicle.
Unlike Bionicle there is no leftover stock from last year so there is a bigger gap to fill.
Perhaps Bionicle did not sell as well as hoped resulting in a downstocking in those areas.
Bionicle should have been given the show
Bionicle has a show, Journey to One.
I dislike the story
I mean, the story is so basic I'm surprised you found enough of it to dislike. The whole "Heroes must fight former friend turned treacherous villain" thing has been around for a long time. It's not going to win any awards for plot, but it's also not really worthy of instant condemnation.
I dislike the show
There, that's a valid reason for disliking the line. Good for you. Much as there is set taste there is also TV taste. The only time when it becomes ridiculous is when the TV disatisfaction influences the toy taste.
I dislike the concept of technology meets medival
Pure personal preference, although it's not something that hasn't been done before. Many an 80's cartoon had stuff like this. Heck, Bionicle combines technology with tribal aesthetics and Ninjago with oriental aesthetics.
This is stealing Bionicle's thunder
The best response I can honestly give is so be it. I love Bionicle, and I want the very best for it, but I don't think it's success comes through other's failure. If kids like NK more than Bionicle that's fine with me. I'd be happy with the other way as well. Success has to be earned.
I'm just really annoyed with all this. Lego has really outdone themselves with this theme in my eyes. It's actually got me back into system set collecting. I think Nexo Knights an interesting concept with innovations in both set design and bridging the gap between digital and physical play.
