Editor’s note: Jar Jar Binks impersonations have a zero tolerance policy according to the Lazygamer constitution. Darryn also doesn’t need a brain to live, so he was able to finish the rest of the story after we were done playing beer pong with the hole in his head. Rest of the story follows on below:
Of course LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is getting a season pass! Of course it is! So what does $10 get you?

That’s, actually not bad. No for reals, hear me out. Most season passes are built on promises, promises which quite often aren’t kept. And yes, the LEGO content on offer is just more of the same, and you pretty much know exactly what you’re going to get. But at least this pack of extra content drops is already planned out. On the more cynical side, it is of course the kind of content that would make LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens a more attractive buy of it were all included for free.
But life’s not fair, I don’t live in a turbo-mansion and my pity levels are at an all-time low. Also, I’m a sucker for anything with Star Wars Rebels in it, which explains why I’ve been chucking my credit card at my screen…okiedey?
