Lego Dimensions melds toystolife gaming and minifigs

first_imgYour Lego budget is about to take a beating, gamers. Warner and Lego have finally joined forces to claim their piece of the delicious toys-to-life pie.Years after Skylanders proved that there’s a ton of cash to be made on plastic figures that unlock in-game content, Dimensions is finally bringing that experience to Warner/TT’s immensely popular franchise. It promises to be their biggest, craziest game yet. Even Community’s Joel McHale thinks so:You’ve played some pretty expansive Lego games before, but Dimensions promises virtually limitless possibilities. At around the two-minute mark you start to get a sense of just how massive the game is going to be: Ninjago, super heroes, the crew from The Lego Movie and the Wizard of Oz (sure, why not?)… Warner’s thrown in everything but the kitchen sink… and that’s probably in there, too, if you look hard enough.Lego’s offering two kinds of expansions: single minifig kits called Fun Packs and Team Packs. There’s even Marty McFly (it is 2015, after all), complete with the Delorean and his hoverboard.The Lego Dimensions starter kit (which will retail for $99) is pretty slick. As you can see from the box art, you’ll be assembling the Stargate-esque portal yourself. That’s a neat touch, but not all of those 269 pieces are for the portal. Three minifigs — Gandalf, Wyldstyle, and Batman — and a micro-scale Batmobile are also included. You can sneak a peek at some of the other Fun Packs you’ll be able to buy in our Lego Dimensions gallery.It looks like the minifigs aren’t glued to their bases, either, which would be a huge bonus. All you parents out there know for a fact that your kids are going to be super disappointed if that turns out not to be the case and they can’t pop their Dimensions figures into their MOCs.Start saving your pocket change, geeks. Lego Dimensions arrives this September.
