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.

Simply collect all 20 of the LEGO Dimensions Character Cards. Then show off your collection to a member of the LEGO Dimensions team on the LEGO Dimensions Stand at BRICKLIVE. You will receive your Green Arrow character (and you get to keep your cards!)

LEGO Dimensions has shared a new image of the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack (71344) which shows off some characters that you can expect to find in the game. As you can see above, some characters in the Sonic series that will be showing up in LEGO Dimensions include Shadow, Big the Cat, Tails, and Knuckles.
LEGO Dimensions Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack (71244) is now available for pre-order over at Amazon and it will be released on November 18.
The Blue Blur is ready for an adventure! Spin into action with Sonic the Hedgehog as he speeds through some of his most iconic locations including Green Hill, Emerald Coast, Labyrinth and many more. Build Sonic and use his Acrobat ability to swing off poles and avoid the Badniks, then use his famous grind rails move to make a quick escape! Travel in style by hopping into the Sonic Speedster or The Tornado, then rebuild them into the Blue Typhoon and Motobug, and the Crabmeat and Eggcatcher for extra-special abilities. Unlock the exclusive Sonic the Hedgehog Adventure World and Battle Arena.
It looks like we finally have some new information about some of the LEGO Dimensions expansion packs that will be coming in 2017. NZGamer.com did an interview with LEGO Dimensions producer Doug Heder and he has given some info on what we can expect from some expansion packs coming in the next few months.
A few weeks ago, Wave 7.5 was announced which includes The LEGO Batman Story Pack (71264), the Knight Rider Fun Pack (71286), and The LEGO Batman Movie Fun Pack (71344). There will be a few more expansion packs that will be coming in March that combines with 7.5 to make it Wave 8. We’ve just recently seen The Goonies Sloth minifigure but there’s no word on which wave it will be in.
Finally, we have the rest of the packs that we know of but hasn’t been revealed yet which will be in Wave 9 and they include the Powerpuff Girls, Beetlejuice, and Teen Titans GO! One little detail that Heder has stated is that the heads for the Powerfuff Girls will be newly molded heads on a standard minifigure body, similar to what we’ve seen for some new minifigures like E.T., Sonic, and the Gremlins. I think that’s good since all the new minifigures have molded heads to make them looks as close as the source material as possible and I’m pretty sure that fans wouldn’t want standard minifigure heads of the girls as it would look all weird.
LEGO Dimensions has just revealed the first look at the Sloth minifigure from The Goonies Level Pack. We’ve seen images of him but we can now see the actual minifigure itself. As you can see, Sloth has on the Superman tank top with the red suspenders and gray pants. It also looks like the top of his head is a separate piece from the head piece. What do you guys think about the LEGO Dimensions Sloth minifigure?
Here’s some interesting news which comes from my friend Alex about some LEGO Dimensions exclusives for GameStop at Black Friday 2016. He overheard an employee mention that the Supergirl (71340) and Green Arrow (71342) promotional polybags will be exclusives during the shopping event.
As we all know by now, the two minifigure polybags have been pretty rare so far as Supergirl has only been available through the PlayStation 4 Starter Pack as a timed exclusive and the Green Arrow has been given away at various conventions like SDCC, E3, and recently at TwitchCon.
As always, take this piece of news as a rumor until it is confirmed by the GameStop Black Friday ad which should be coming out very soon in which I’ll do an updated post about it.
If you were on the fence on getting into LEGO Dimensions, you’ll be happy to know that the current gen LEGO Dimensions Starter Packs are 44% off including the PlayStation 4 version with the Supergirl minifigure while the last gen starter packs are 50% off the normal price. This is also good timing especially with the Wave 6 expansion packs coming out tomorrow.
So who’s excited for the new expansion packs and which ones are you guys picking up?
