WB Games has announced that LEGO City: Undercover will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC/Steam in Spring 2017. If you remember, LEGO City: Undercover lets you take control of Chase McCain in sort of a toned down Grand Theft Auto-style game that was released for the Nintendo Wii U back in 2013.
If you’re a LEGO City collector, there was a Chase McCain Minifigure Polybag (5000281) that was released with pre-orders of the game and he was eventually released in the High Speed Chase (60007) and will be coming back again in 2017 with the High-Speed Chase (60138).
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.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released another video in their LEGO Dimensions “Meet That Hero” series. In this video, it features Marceline from her Adventure Time Fun Pack (71285) and Gizmo and Stripe from the Gremlins Team Pack (71256). Marceline tells us about the three rules for Gizmo which you should know if you’ve seen the movies.
The Gremlins Team Pack also includes Gizmo’s R.C. Racer and the Flash ‘n’ Finish camera. The expansion packs along with the other ones in Wave 7 will be available on November 18.
Yesterday, I reported that WB and TT Games will be heading to BrickLive Birmingham 2016 this week and they’ll be showcasing LEGO Dimensions there. If you are attending the convention, there’s a chance for you to get your hands on the Green Arrow (71342) minifigure polybag if you put in some work. TT Games will be handing out some LEGO Dimensions Character cards and if you collect all 20, you can get the Green Arrow minifigure.
There are various ways that you can get these character cards which you can see below in the press release that was sent over. It doesn’t seem that the character cards do anything in-game but they are pretty cool to have.
