LEGO Dimensions is Real, Launches this Fall

A few weeks ago, rumors emerged about a toys-to-life game from toy maker LEGO. Today, publisher Warner Bros. lifted the curtain on the game, confirmed to be called LEGO Dimensions. As is expected with other Toys-to-Life games like Skylanders and Disney Infinity (not counting amiibo), LEGO Dimensions will launch with a starter pack and extra expansions, starting on September 27th in North America. It will be available across the usual platforms, including Xbox, PlayStation, and (yes) Wii U.

What expansions can we expect for the first wave of LEGO Dimensions? As per the official press release:

A small sample of packs available in 2015 include the Back to the Future Level Pack with a LEGO Marty McFly minifigure, a Lego Ninjago Team Pack with Kai and Cole minifigures, three Ninjago Fun Packs with Jay, Nya and Zane minifigures, two DC Comics Fun Packs with Wonder Woman and Cyborg minifigures, three The Lord of the Rings Fun Packs with Lego Gollum, Lego Gimli and Lego Legolas minifigures, four The Lego Movie Fun packs with Emmet, Bad Cop, Benny and Unikitty characters, and a The Wizard of Oz Fun Pack with a Lego Wicked Witch of the West minifigure.

Additional packs to round out the 2015 assortment will be announced in the months leading to launch. Further waves of expansion packs will be released regularly following the launch of the game and into 2016.

Future expansion pack purchases will continue to work with the Starter Pack, even in the fall of next year. No compatibility chart necessary.

What sets LEGO Dimensions apart from other Toys-to-Life games perhaps is the price. Amazon.com has listed the starter pack for a whopping $99. For that price, you’ll get NFC minifigs of Batman, Gandalf, and Wyldstyle from The LEGO Movie, a LEGO Batmobile, and the LEGO Toy Pad to scan them all. To be fair, LEGO products tend to command a premium due to their high construction quality.

Amazon is listing the extra expansions ranging from $14.99 to $29.99. Between this and the next installments of Skylanders and Infinity, this fall promises to be very expensive for fans and the parents of kids who crave this gameplay. Shout out how you feel about LEGO Dimensions in the comments.
