Pokemon Mega Construx Line Coming!

A while back, I did an article suggesting that Nintendo considering dropping the license with K’Nex and making an actual building toy line that would appeal to young and old Nintendo fans.  According to Kotaku, an idea similar to this is in the works and while license isn’t coming directly from Nintendo (and instead the Pokemon Company), someone is finally bringing us some toys based on building blocks!  The company that was once known as Mega Bloks who had or have several video game licenses including Assassin’s Creed and Halo will be getting the Pokemon license.  There is limited information as far as what the sets will be like but it looks like they may be Pokemon centered instead of being larger building sets like you see with Lego.  While these initial sets seem small (which would make them friendly to kids and to everyone’s wallet)  I could see a very cool display with a gym set and all kinds of Pokemon sets you can build and place on top of it.  That is intriguing enough for me to consider buying some of these new toys even though I’m not a big Pokemon fan.  We can only hope that Mega Construx might consider getting Mario or Zelda or all of Nintendo’s properties at some point in the future if this line does well.  Here is a quick look at the building sets that have been revealed, when more details come out, I’ll be sure to update you all on this exciting new line!

    • That makes sense. I kept all my Legos from my childhood and so I have a bit of nostalgia when it comes to them. With that said, I haven’t actively collected or even bought them in nearly two decades. Legos can be quite expensive and take up a fair amount of room though even as an adult I think they’re relaxing to play around with when you have the time 🙂

      • That is very cool! I have a pirate ship but not a really big one and some of the medium sized castle sets. My brother who is younger than me got some really big and impressive sets like the Wild West and later the Taj Mahal that we still own. Why he got bigger Lego sets than I bothers me to this day haha!

    • That is a great point about the angles and truthfully, Pokemon need that to be successful as a building toy and actually look like Pokemon I feel. I’ll definitely keep a close eye on these and when some sets are announced I may pick up one that looks cool or fun to build and see how it goes!
