LEGO Star Wars: The Freemakers are back!

You might remember that last year Disney XD released a LEGO animated television series titled LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures. It was a really fun and engaging story, set between Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. The show follows the adventures of a scavenger family, the Freemakers, as they travel throughout the galaxy. The first season consisted of thirteen episodes and aired last summer, later becoming available on DVD. Recently Disney XD announced that it is renewing the series for a second season that will start airing this summer. Story and trailer below. 🙂

In the first season of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, we met the Freemaker siblings; young boy Rowan, his sister Kordi, and their brother Zander. They are scavengers, who build and sell starships from battle debris strewn throughout the galaxy. When Rowan discovers a natural connection with the Force through an ancient artifact – the Kyber Saber – his world is turned upside down, and he and his family are thrown into an epic struggle against the Empire to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy. The Freemakers explore new worlds, meet new and familiar characters and learn the meaning of family. You can get all thirteen action-packed episodes of the first season (along with extra collections of clips, behind-the-scenes footage and cast interviews) on DVD/Blu-ray on Amazon: THE FREEMAKER ADVENTURES ON AMAZON

The second season of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures continues the story where the first season left off. 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. Watch the trailer below.

The story looks just as good as the first season, so we can look forward to some fun this summer! And what would a great LEGO Star Wars story be without related sets? For the first season of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures we got the #75145 LEGO Star Wars Eclipse Fighter, and the #75147 LEGO Star Wars StarScavenger – both medium-size sets that gave us the main characters and a couple of small ships. For the second season we are getting two more sets, the #75185 LEGO Star Wars Tracker I, and the #75186 LEGO Star Wars Arrowhead. Both sets are larger and more substantial than last year’s offerings, and include new characters. I especially like the Arrowhead; an elegant ship, with likely fun play-features.

If you would like to catch up on the LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures story before the new season gets released, I highly recommend getting the DVD/Blu-ray version. They are both on sale on Amazon:

If you like LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, there are other LEGO Star Wars story expansions that are equally fun and originally aired as a TV show and now available on Amazon in DVD format. See below:

Yeah, looks like LEGO felt there is room for bigger sets. 🙂

Yes!!! I really liked the first season. It’s a fresh take on the SW story and pretty fun. And the sets are so much better this time!

What I like the most about the cartoons and the sets is that they are outside the normal Star Wars story and therefore fully customizable. I also really like the Arrowhead! The Tracker I also looks interesting, but it’s hard to make out the details from that angle.

Good point. With these sets you can customize as much as you want, as that is very much the spirit of the Freemakers. 🙂

I know Amazon is selling the to older sets ( cheaper ) . I may get those sets as well the Arrowhead . It also depends on where my LEGO expenses go when the newer sets come out .

Yeah, I just saw that as well. Yeah, the Eclipse Fighter is currently 30% off, see here: http://amzn.to/2nVruvo, but I think the Star Scavenger already sold out directly from Amazon. However it is still available from third-party sellers, see here: http://amzn.to/2nVrwDN

When are the sets going to be released? That’s what I’m looking forward to the most.

My understanding is that they will be available this summer.

I might just wait for “the fourth be you ” in May . Do you know the prices of the two sets that are coming in the summer ?

The Tracker I is $70, and the Arrowhead is $90. If you can get it at a discount, the Star Scavenger might still be worth getting, as three of the minifigs are unique to the set, and it’s the cheapest way to get all three of the Freemakers (in the new sets they are split up).

I really like the Freemaker Adventures, so it’s good to see season 2 coming! I prefer the Star Scavenger’s design to these two new ships, but the small size and various flaws of that set dissuade me from getting it. And while these new sets are bigger and look great, they’re out of my budget range. (Their prices should also only be $60 and $80, not $70 and $90.)
In terms of the sets, I’m not a huge fan of the Arrowhead’s shape, but it does still look cool. I note two gears and a lever on the front of the ship, which suggests that the Technic hammer-thing on the front rotates (perhaps a full 360 degrees), possibly to smash things. Tracker 1 recalls the shape of a TIE Defender, or a tri-winged TIE Striker, and makes impressive use of the new Nexo Knights 3-shield triangle piece for the cockpit. Also, I think “M-OC Hunter Droid” is a LEGO pun: in the trailer, Palpatine calls it, “my own creation;” LEGO fans shorten that phrase to MOC, or M-OC. 😉

LOL! Good notice about the MOC droid! I like LEGO puns like that! 😀
