Thankfully, we now have the LEGO February Store Calendar posted online so we look closely at its highlights. Check this out.
Earlier today, Engadget was first to confirm what LEGO has teased since last week on an awesome ‘new play experience’. Since then, LEGO has released tons of information about this highly anticipated play set. Check out TLG’s official press release, official photos and product description, and cool demo videos that went live via Facebook just a few hours ago at the high profile, tech event at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Since its appearance a few days ago, the highly popular LEGO polybag version of every body’s favorite droid has been all over eBay, with some selling more than a hundred dollars.

All eyes are set on LEGO and Warner Bros’ next big, brick-built film with The LEGO Batman Movie. Slated to hit theaters on February 10, the highly-anticipated film managed to inspire 18 sets, several polybags, and a handful of accessories and memorabilia. However, most fans may be unaware that there is another LEGO-themed film that is also scheduled to be released in cinemas this year. Voiced by Olivia Munn, Dave Franco and the legendary Jackie Chan, The LEGO Ninjago Movie is expected to arrive in theaters on September 22, 2017. Directed by Charlie Bean and Paul Fisher, and produced by Warner Bros. Pictures and Warner Animation Group (WAG), the film “tells the story of six young ninja tasked with defending their island home, called Ninjago. By night, they’re gifted warriors, using their skill and awesome fleet of vehicles to fight villains and monsters. By day, they’re ordinary teens, struggling against their greatest enemy: high school.”
