70589 Rock Roader is a LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu - Day of the Departed set that released in most countries on June 1, 2016, but on August 1st, 2016 in the United States and Canada. It includes Cole RX, Lil' Nelson, a Stone Swordsman, a Stone Scout, the Elemental Departed Blade, the Rock Roader, and a small outpost for the Stone Army.
Conquer the Stone Army with Cole RX's Rock Roader!
This mighty vehicle's offroader wheels and suspension means it can power across the roughest terrain. When you get the Stone Army's base camp in your sights, fire the 6-stud rapid shooter and detach Lil' Nelson's turret. Dodge the base camp's disc shooter. Spin the Rock Roader's dangerous rear driller and beware of the Stone Army warriors' Elemental Blade and stud-shooting crossbow. Then, attach the spinning driller to the front of the Rock Roader to smash their base camp and drive away victorious!

- 70588 Titanium Ninja Tumbler features Zane fighting two Nindroids and 70592 Salvage M.E.C. features Ronin fighting two Skulkin—both of which happen in "Day of the Departed." In this set, Cole fights two Stone Warriors, which he never does in the TV special.
- This is one of two sets that include the Elemental Departed Blade. Kozu also wields it in 70596 Samurai X Cave Chaos.
- Lil' Nelson is included in this set, despite never appearing in "Day of the Departed," though it seems he was featured in early drafts.
- The set's Departed Blade features a translucent Elemental Blade piece, paying homage to it as it was the collectible weapon of Season 2.

- This is the first set since 850632 Samurai Accessory Set in 2013 to feature members of the Stone Army.
- A trading card from the spinner series is Lil' Nelson's main accessory. It depicts Kendo Cole.
- Like 891728 Stone Swordsman, this set includes a black scorpion because a black scorpion is a symbol of the Stone Army.
