This is so exciting! I'm a huge fan of the toys-to-life games (Skylanders, Amiibo, Disney Infinity) and now LEGO is joining in the fun with their LEGO Dimensions game combining The LEGO Movie, DC Comics,The Lord of the Rings, Wizard of Oz and more all into one game! THS IS FANTASTIC!!!!
The starter pack is set to be released September 27 for $99.99 and looks to be available for pre-order here on current and previous gen consoles (xbox, xbox one, PS3, PS4 and Wii U).
Here's the description of the bundle:
"When a mysterious and powerful vortex suddenly appears in various LEGO® worlds, different characters from DC Comics, Lord of the Rings and the LEGO Movie are swept away. To save their friends, Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstylebravely jump into the vortex to rescue their friends and fight to save all of LEGO humanity.
Let your creativity be your guide as you build the LEGO Gateway to adventure, journeying through unexpected worlds and teaming-up with unlikely allies on the quest to defeat the evil Lord Vortech. Play with characters you never thought you could see in a LEGO game together, using vehicles and weapons you never thought possible. LEGO Bad Cop driving the DeLorean Time Machine: why not?! The Ninjago Masters of Spinjitsu fighting alongside Wonder Woman ... yes, please! Get ready to break the rules, because the only rule with LEGO Dimensions is that there are no rules.
The LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack is all you need to begin - build your base and embark on a fantastic quest."
Holy moly. Just what I need.. another thing to collect! Now I just have to decide what platform I'll be getting it on, hmm? Nintendo or xbox one?!
OH LOOK SOME MORE PACKS! YES PLEASE I WILL TAKE THE TEAM, LEVEL AND FUN PACK. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY THE FUN PACK BECAUSE I CLEARLY LOVE FUN!!!
It looks like a bunch of these packs are currently available for pre-order in the UK Amazon store for £14.99. Thankfully Nintendo didn't region lock their Amiibo so let's hope the same goes for these guys :) I've unfortunately had to get most of mine from ebay on Japan but they still work perfectly!
Beyond jealous of Joel McHale for getting to be in this launch trailer :) IT'S AMAZING!
