If you saw the post for the LEGO Rebrick contest for The LEGO Ninjago Movie, one of the prizes that will be given out for the winners has shed some light on the D2C set that will accompany the movie.
As I first reported last month, there will be a D2C set that will be part of Ninjago City, possibly a modular building. We now know that it will be valued at $300 USD which suggest that it will be upwards of around 3,000 pieces. Stay tuned as we wait for the reveal of this D2C The LEGO Ninjago Movie set as well as the regular sets.

The new trailer for season two of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures has been released. We can see some of the upcoming sets in action in with the Tracker I (75185) and The Arrowhead (75186). The new season introduces a new character called M-OC Hunter Droid which has been unleashed by Emperor Palpatine to find the Freemakers. Season two will premiere this summer on Disney XD and you can check out the trailer below.
At the end of the first season, the Freemaker family found a new home with the rebel fleet. Their new circumstances bring them face to face with brutal Imperial forces, desperate Hutts, conniving Sith Lords, and the Emperor’s latest plaything, M-OC, a terrifying hunter droid who continually modifies himself to fit any occasion. In response to these threats, Rowan’s powers grow and strengthen until he has a vision of a sleek, invulnerable ship that can save the Rebellion and stop the Empire in its tracks – the Arrowhead. The catch is, the Arrowhead is a ship only Rowan can build. Once again, it’s up to the youngest Freemaker to save the galaxy.
