Confused yet? Just wait until you get a look at the race system we have planned, it’s sure to be an interesting treat for everyone. You have one month to build and two grand prizes up for grabs, so hit the jump for the full guidelines & clarifications and get your bricks ready to race!

GameRant.com had a chance to sit down with TT Games at the recent GDC show to get an eyes-on, guided preview of the game in development. It sounds like they are making the game more of a true platformer than the normal hack’n'slash type of previous LEGO games.
For another take on the preview, GamePro.com also put up a preview article on the game.
This one’s scheduled for a May release on all major platforms including the Nintendo 3DS.
I always try to make it a point to continue with the sales news past December but always manage to peter out by the time New Year’s rolls by. Anyways, I’m posting this deal because it’s a pretty sweet deal no matter how you look at it. Right now at Amazon, you can pick up Ninjago 2505 Garmadon’s Dark Fortress for $50, down from MSRP of $69.99. With free shipping and no tax to most states, it’s a pretty nice deal if you’re into ninja.
Today LEGO S@H added the new Spring keychains and magnets that have been popping up in stores the last week or so. These new magnet sets are glued to the base.
Also, all LEGO online, telephone, and in-store purchases qualify for double VIP points between now and March 15th.
