While the sets in the LEGO Hidden Side theme launched earlier this month, at least one mroe set is on the way this year. 40336 Newbury Juice Bar was recently discovered, and the Brick Fan reports that it will be free at LEGO.com with qualifying purchases from September 2. In the USA, the minimum spend will be $50 and may be limited to Hidden Side products.
The new theme combines physical LEGO sets with a digital app experience that allows fans to play games and bring the models to life using augmented reality (AR).
