Earlier today at Gamescom 2016, IGN did an interview with LEGO Dimensions Game Directors James McLoughlin and Arthur Parsons to talk about details about some of the upcoming expansion packs for Year 2. There’s also some new gameplay footage of the Harry Potter Team Pack (71247) as well as from the Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack (71244). In the Harry Potter World, you can see Voldemort flying through various locations like Grimmauld Place, Hogsmeade, and Hogwarts using the unsupported flight spell. The LEGO Dimensions Year 2 Wave 6 content will be available starting September 27 and can be pre-ordered on Amazon.
PlayStationLifeStyle.net is reporting that the Brazil Rating Board had a listing (now removed) for a LEGO Harry Potter Collection will be coming to PlayStation 4. The collection is reported to include both LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 as well as LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7. There was no mentioning of when the LEGO Harry Potter Collection will be released but the Harry Potter Universe has been the talk for the past few months with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play and book along with the Fantastic Beasts movie coming out soon. If the PS4 collection does come out, I wouldn’t be surprised if it also comes with some kind of exclusive LEGO minifigure or build.

Remember back in April when an image of Supergirl came out for LEGO Dimensions? Well it looks like we now have information on how to get the minifigure. Earlier today for Gamescom 2016, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment released details on how to get Supergirl for LEGO Dimensions and they have sent over assets including in-game images.
It turns out that Supergirl will be an exclusive bonus for the Playstation 4 Starter Pack (71171) starting on September 27. Obviously, this is a terrible announcement for people who already purchased the Playstation 4 Starter Pack or for those with other systems. People will most likely not be spending more money on another Starter Pack just to get the minifigure so the secondary market will definitely benefit from it. There’s no doubt that many fans will not agree to this move and hopefully we’ll be able to get Supergirl in a separate expansion pack but that probably doesn’t seem likely. You can now pre-order the LEGO Dimensions PS4 Starter Pack with the Supergirl minifigure over on Amazon and it will be released the same day that the Year 2, Wave 6 expansion packs are available.
“Introducing the Supergirl from Krypton!”
Supergirl LEGO Minifigure Added as Exclusive Bonus
in LEGO® Dimensions™ Starter Packs for PlayStation®4
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment revealed today at Gamescom that starting in late September 2016, LEGO Dimensions Starter Packs for Sony PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system will include an exclusive, bonus DC Comics Supergirl LEGO minifigure for a limited time. The highly collectable Supergirl LEGO minifigure has many extraordinary in-game abilities to help solve puzzles and battle enemies, including Super Strength, Flying, X-Ray Vision, and Beam Attacks which enable her to shoot heat beams out of her eyes. She can also transform into Supergirl Girl Red Lantern with additional abilities such as firing powerful Red Lantern energy bolts and energy beams from the Red Lantern Ring and forming Red Lantern Energy Constructs.
The LEGO Dimensions PS4™ Starter Pack includes the videogame, bricks to build the LEGO Gateway, four LEGO minifigures, Batman, Gandalf, Wyldstyle and the exclusive Supergirl, plus the LEGO Batmobile, and the revolutionary LEGO Toy Pad, which allows players to transport special LEGO minifigures and models into the game, as well as direct in-game action all with the movement of the physical toys.
In the future, Supergirl will be available as a “Hire-a-Hero,” a feature in LEGO Dimensions that allows players to sample characters using studs collected in the game. Players can select the hologram minifigure near certain hint stones to unlock characters for a limited time to try out their special abilities to solve problems and complete puzzles.
In addition to the sale of the Year 2 Wave 6 LEGO Dimensions expansion packs on Amazon from yesterday, the Adventure Time Level Pack (71245) has now also been discounted by 40%. It now goes for $17.99 with free shipping for Amazon Prime members and you’ll also get the price guarantee if you pre-ordered early.
I’ve also been told that Target also has the same offer but you can save an additional 5% if you use your Target Redcard.
