The STAR WARS universe is getting bigger again, and this time it's being done brick-by-brick. For the first time LEGO is doing an ongoing series with Disney XD, and it's rooted firmly in a galaxy far, far away. LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is a comedy adventure series with new characters and old favorites, set to debut on Disney XD this summer.
There's been another awakening... and this time it's comin' at ya in LEGO form! On June 28, 2016, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will hit retail, bringing the signature humor of the LEGO Star Wars franchise to new heights as players navigate the new worlds discovered in J.J. Abrams' THE FORCE AWAKENS. Check out the announcement trailer, and pre-order yours today!
It's seems a long way off, but on March 1, 2016, LEGO STAR WARS: DROID TALES will blast onto DVD. Collecting all five episodes of the recent Disney XD hit, DROID TALES presents a new telling of the first six episodes of the STAR WARS saga, re-told by C-3PO in anticipation of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Each DVD will include a set of exclusive trading cards. Check out full details and a new clip below!
For generations, the Advent Calendar has been a fun way for families to have a Christmas countdown - opening a new door each day during the lead-up to Christmas morning. When I was a kid, it was chocolates behind those doors, and for The Rock Daughters, that was the case for their first few Christmases... but last year that changed. Grandma started a new tradition with the purchase of a pair of LEGO Advent Calendars (it was LEGO City & Friends in '14), and that's continuing this year with a LEGO STAR WARS Advent Calendar and a LEGO City Advent Calendar - both of which have already been ordered by Grandma, and have arrived to be safely stashed until December 1st. Knowing that these tend to sell out very early, I'm including these as a featured pick in my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide, alongside some other seasonally-appropriate LEGO fun!
