Here’s something very interesting coming from one of our readers who have shared some information about some upcoming LEGO Dimensions expansion packs. We already knew that we would be getting expansion packs from franchises such as Teen Titans Go! and LEGO City Undercover when it was first announced.
A reader did some datamining and found some expansion packs that would be coming out for some franchises. Looking at the info, it looks like LEGO City: Undercover will be a Chase McCain Fun Pack while Teen Titans Go! will be a Team Pack which includes both Raven and Beast Boy. For that set, it’ll be either 71254 or 71255. There’s also some details of the Powerpuff Girls which will include all three characters of Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup. No word about which expansion pack(s) they will be in.
What’s most interesting out of the screenshot is the Lord Vortech Fun Pack which could mean that we’ll finally be getting a Lord Vortech minifigure which fans have been asking for since LEGO Dimensions was first released. Of course, this could be just dummy info to throw everyone off but we’ll see.
Thanks to Matthew for the info.

If you purchased the LEGO Dimensions Adventure Time Marceline Fun Pack (71285) from Toys R Us and intend to use her in the game, you may want to return it or contact LEGO Dimensions Support as there has been reports of widespread issues with the NFC chip. Basically, the tags for Marceline herself are coming up empty and it contains no data for the system to detect. I’m hearing that this issue is only affecting North America and the ones in the UK seem to be fine.
As far as I know, TT Games has not acknowledged the issue publicly but Toys R Us has issued a stop sale on the Fun Packs and has started pulling them from the floor. The link for the TRU product page has also been taken down. If you see them available for purchase, I suggest don’t buy it until the issue is fixed. For those who just collect the minifigures and have no interest in playing the LEGO Dimensions itself, that doesn’t really matter but for those who do, I suggest contacting support in the link above to see about getting a replacement tag.
The Wave 7 LEGO Dimensions expansion packs are now available for purchase on Amazon. The only pack not listed on Amazon is the Adventure Time Marceline Fun Pack (71285) which is a Toys R Us exclusive pack.

Here’s something interesting coming out of Twitter earlier today. LEGO Dimensions designer/writer Joe Moore tweeted out an image of the Red Dwarf area which was found in the Fantastic Beasts Story Pack (71253). As we know, Red Dwarf isn’t an official LEGO license yet, as far was we know, however there was a Red Dwarf project that just hit 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas just last week.
Does this actually we’ll be getting a Red Dwarf expansion pack in the future? Not necessarily. If you remember from last year, there were stages that included the Jetsons and Flintstones but there weren’t any physical sets that came out of that so this could just be an easter egg like the previous ones.
Last month I reported that it was rumored the LEGO Dimensions Green Arrow (71342) polybag would be given out at GameStop during Black Friday 2016. I can now confirm from their Black Friday ad posted on BFAds.net that Green Arrow will indeed be given away with the purchase of any LEGO Dimensions product.
Some of their other promotions during Black Friday include the price of the Starter Packs dropping down to $39.99. The Team Packs will be priced at $14.99 while the Level Packs will be $19.99 each.
In a recent interview with MuggleNet, Arthur Parsons gave some new information on what will be coming in the SDCC confirmed LEGO Dimensions Hermoine Fun Pack. According to Arthur, the build that will come with the Fun Pack is a brick-built Hippogriff which can be rebuilt into two other creatures. One of the rebuild is an Owl and the other is possibly Hermoine’s cat, Crookshanks but that is not confirmed.
Thanks to Jeremy B. for the heads up.
