A few days ago, LEGO released the newest wave of LEGO Dimensions expansion packs including the Ghostbusters Stay Puft Fun Pack (71233). This Fun Pack contains 65 pieces and normally retails for $14.99 but they’ve been on sale for half off recently.
The minifigure included in the Fun Pack is the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man which many LEGO Ghostbusters fans have been waiting for. He’s a pretty simple minifigure but the character is represented perfectly in minifigure form. The torso has the red scarf pattern which could be very nice for other minifigure uses while the head and collar piece is one mold. The head itself is very nice with the little molding details of the chubby face. Finally it comes with the NFC disc that all Dimensions minifigures come with.
The main build for the Fun Pack is the Terror Dog. It does resemble the demonic beast very well even though it is brick-built. The face has the angry look that is accentuated by the red eyes. The head
The first alternate build for the Terror Dog is the Terror Dog Destroyer. It’s almost the same as the regular one but it has two heads.
The last build for the Terror Dog is the Soaring Terror Dog which is a flying version of it that kind of look like a dragon.
Overall, majority of the people who are picking up the Ghostbusters Stay Puft Fun Pack (71233) is for the Stay Puft minifigure because he is exclusive to this set. The Terror Dog can fit into your Ghostbusters MOCs if you want to recreate scenes from the movie.
Again, most of the LEGO Dimensions expansion packs have been on sale so if you want to pick up this Fun Pack, now is a great time to since it is half off.
If you play LEGO Dimensions, you can follow the instructions in game to build the different versions of the Terror Dog but for those who don’t play it, you can download the instructions.

Earlier today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment sent over the official press release for Wave 4 of the LEGO Dimensions expansion packs. If you haven’t read it yet, we had an exclusive interview with TT Games Associate Producer Mark Warburton about the Midway Arcade Level Pack (71235)
LEGO® Dimensions™ Powers Up Gameplay with Midway Arcade Level Pack and Three Fun Packs Based on DC Comics and Ghostbusters
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today the release of the new LEGO Dimensions Midway Arcade Level Pack and highly collectable DC Comics Superman and DC Comics Aquaman and Ghostbusters Stay Puft Fun Packs. Players can customize their building and gaming adventures in LEGO Dimensions with the purchase of these Wave 4 expansion packs which provide additional gameplay, buildable characters, and rebuildable 3-in-1 vehicles and gadgets with special in-game abilities. All expansion packs provide gamers the opportunity to use everything interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game, for a crazy mash-up multiverse.
The Midway Arcade Level Pack comes with a buildable Gamer Kid minifigure and G-6155 Spy Hunter vehicle and Arcade Machine – all playable in the game, and unlocks more than 20 classic arcade games from Midway Arcade as an exclusive level. These classic games include Seven Twenty, Badlands, Blasteroids, Championship Sprint, Defender, Defender II, Gauntlet, Gauntlet II, KLAX, Joust, Joust 2, Marble Madness, Paperboy, Rampage, Road Blasters, Robron, Spyhunter, SuperSprint, Timber, Toobin, Cyberball, Vindicators and Xybots.
To get started, players attach Gamer Kid to his LEGO Toy Tag and place him on the LEGO Toy Pad to bring him to life in the game, where he can help them put rogue Midway Arcade characters back where they belong. Players can activate Gamer Kid’s Stealth, Laser, Speed, Invulnerability, and Super Strength abilities to solve puzzles and battle enemies. When things get dangerous, players can boost their gameplay with the G-6155 Spy Hunter which can be rebuilt into The Interdiver and Aerial Spyhunter, or the Arcade Machine which rebuilds into the 8-Bit Shooter and The Pixilator Pod for upgraded in-game abilities. Gamer Kid also unlocks the Midway Arcade Adventure World to provide players with additional open-world gameplay.
The DC Comics Superman Fun Pack includes a buildable Superman minifigure and Hover Pod. Players can bring the Man of Steel to life in the game and activate his Flying, Dive, Invulnerability, Laser Deflector, Freeze Breath, X-Ray Vision, and Super Strength abilities to solve puzzles and overpower enemies. The Hover Pod will boost gameplay, and can be rebuilt into a Krypton Striker and Super Stealth Pod for upgraded in-game abilities.
The DC Comics Aquaman Fun Pack features a buildable Aquaman minifigure and Aqua Watercraft. Players can dive into gameplay as the King of the Seven Seas and activate his special Dive, Growth, Atlantis and Hazard Cleaner abilities to solve puzzles and take down rivals. The Aqua Watercraft comes in handy for swift getaways, and can be rebuild it into a Seven Seas Speeder and Trident of Fire for upgraded powers in the game.
The Ghostbusters Stay Puft Fun Pack comes with the first-ever buildable Stay Puft minifigure and Terror Dog. Players can become everyone’s favorite marshmallow man and activate his Hazard Protection, Big Transform and Super Strength abilities to solve puzzles and battle enemies. The Terror Dog can be called in as back-up and rebuilt as the Terror Dog Destroyer and Soaring Terror Dog for upgraded powers in the game. The pack also allows access to the Ghostbusters Adventure World where gamers can play as any one of the four Ghostbusters characters.
LEGO Dimensions is available for PlayStation4 and PlayStation3 computer entertainment systems Xbox One, Xbox 360, and the Wii U system from Nintendo.
Wave 4 of the LEGO Dimensions expansion packs are now available for purchase including the Midway Arcade Gamer Level Pack (71235), the Ghostbusters Fun Pack (71233), the Superman Fun Pack (71236), and the Aquaman Fun Pack (71237). These new packs allow you to play as those respective characters in the game along with using their abilities to solve various puzzles. The new level pack gives you tons more content which also includes letting you play some classic Midway Arcade games.
Furthermore, we also had the opportunity to do an exclusive interview with TT Games Associate Producer Mark Warburton about the Midway Arcade Level Pack a few weeks ago. I took some questions from the readers and Mark graciously took the time to answer them which you can read below.
What was your favorite part of the Midway Arcade Level Pack? (Either the design of the toys or the in-game content)
To be honest I think both go hand in hand. The first time you see the LEGO toys and the fact that a handful of bricks can be rebuilt in to three different vehicles is quite an exciting moment. Then when you see the level itself and all these cool nods to the history of video games finally come together, it’s an amazing experience.
What other objects where considered besides the G-6155 Spy Hunter car and Defender cabinet?
All sorts of things are considered and it’s a lot of fun seeing what items those master builders at LEGO can come up with. However, when you boil it down, we wanted something really cool and iconic and that car has been a staple of not only arcades, but video games on the whole for the past 30 years. Doing a Midway Arcade expansion pack, it only makes sense that one of the builds is an arcade cabinet.
I love that the Midway Arcade Level Pack blends LEGO bricks, modern gaming (Dimensions levels) and retro gaming (the Midway gallery) in a way that is approachable and enjoyable for kids, teens, and adults and parents. With the inclusion of so many games as well as the dedicated design of the product, this ‘pack’ seems particularly special. Was that part of the design goal?
That was absolutely the design goal. For the last 11 years we’ve been almost entirely dedicated to bringing some of the best movies in history to a new generation of fans whilst entertaining parents at the same time. With this pack we wanted to start introducing the younger generation to the history of our industry, Video games have been around for a long time and we think that even the early ones should be championed today and are still just as enjoyable as they were when they were originally released.
What are the names of all 23 games included in the pack?
Seven Twenty, Badlands, Blasteroids, Championship Sprint, Defender, Defender II, Gauntlet, Gauntlet II, KLAX, Joust, Joust 2, Marble Madness, Paperboy, Rampage, Road Blasters, Robron, Spyhunter, SuperSprint, Timber, Toobin, Cyberball, Vindicators, and Xybots.
What is the Adventure World like? Is it a big mashup of all the Midway games or are there separate sections for all of them?
Imagine the best, most insane arcade you have ever seen or been to, then make it out of LEGO bricks and you will be halfway to imagining what the Adventure World is like.
Will you be able to use any vehicle, gadget or character in the arcade games?
The arcade games themselves are exactly the same and unaltered from their original release, the Retro Level and Adventure World will, of course, allow any vehicle or character or object to be used at any time.
What abilities will the G-6155 Spy Hunter and the Arcade Machine have?
When things get dangerous, players can boost their gameplay with the G-6155 Spy Hunter which can be rebuilt into The Interdiver and Aerial Spyhunter, or the Arcade Machine which rebuilds into the 8-Bit Shooter and The Pixilator Pod for upgraded in-game abilities.
Are the games included in the Midway Arcade Level Pack the full classic arcade games, or “Legoified” versions?
They are the full classic arcade games, untouched and unaltered, exactly as they were meant to be.
What was by far your favorite game to add into the Midway Arcade pack and how do you think children will respond to the pack? Do you think kids will get it for themselves or will the adults get it so their “kids” can play?
Adding Rampage was quite a thrill. I remember the first time I discovered that game and spent hours destroying buildings and causing chaos. Getting to revisit that again was a particular highlight. The games themselves are timeless, they are just as playable now as they ever were, I think some kids will really appreciate seeing how far video games have come. And others will enjoy being shown in the type of games their parents grew up with.
Have you been working on the pack since the game came out, or was it made and in the game but just hidden?
We started work on Midway Arcade after the main release of LEGO Dimensions. We built LEGO Dimensions as a system of play that we can keep plugging extra bits in to as we go along. As with all the level packs so fa, they were added post launch.
Will the bricks be printed or be stickers for the Arcade Machine?
Did you have any involvement in what the overall pack included, and if so, what did you help get implemented (any of the cabinet printing or licensing)?
The cool thing about working at TT is that it truly is a collaborative effort. Every person has a chance to have a say and input in to the game to try and make it the best thing we possibly can.
When working on the project, how excited were you to be Legofying these classic games?
It’s incredibly exciting! It’s always exciting when we get to play around with a new property, ESPECIALLY when we get our hands on something that’s as iconic as this. Some of us spent our entire childhoods pumping money in to the arcades, so to now actually be working on these iconic titles is humbling.
What is your favorite game in the level pack? How about in real life? My favourite game is probably Rampage, there’s something incredibly compelling about playing as a giant lizard destroying the city.
My favorite of all time, is Sonic on the Sega Master System. That was the very first video game I was exposed to and I remember spending countless hours trying to find every single secret nook and cranny. It will always be a special game to me … except for the vertical scrolling jungle level, that level can really go get lost.
How satisfied are you with the outcome?
Incredibly. Any time we do a game, seeing it go from paper to screen is a great experience. The designers on this occasion pulled out all the stops and made something that was accessible to not only kids, but players of all ages.
