On the last day of San Diego Comic Con 2016, there was a LEGO Dimensions roundtable session with members of the press and I was invited to attend. TT Games Game Directors James Mcloughlin and Arthur Parsons were on hand to answer questions about the LEGO Dimensions Year 2 content which has some exciting new stuff for it. We only had a limited time with each person so there wasn’t that much time to cover every single question that you guys posted but I did manage to sneak a few in. Both interviews were around 17 minutes long so if you have some time, feel free to check it out.
Over at San Diego Comic Con 2016 for Sonic the Hedgehog’s 25th Anniversary Party, TT Games has revealed the new LEGO Dimensions Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack (71244). The expansion pack includes the Sonic the Hedgehog minifigure, Sonic Speedster, and The Tornado. The level pack will most likely come out in a later wave than the September one and will probably retail for $29.99.
Game Directors Arthur Parsons and James Mcloughlin over on the Twitch stream has teased that more fan favorite characters from the Sonic franchise will be appearing as well but is keeping that a secret for now. There will be a trailer soon so I’ll update this post when it drops.
Update: The official trailer has been released. In the trailer, you can also see Sonic turn into Super Sonic when the seven Chaos Emeralds are collected.
I’m back from the first official day of San Diego Comic Con 2016 and today I want to focus on the LEGO Warner Bros. stuff, more importantly LEGO Dimensions. The LEGO Dimensions glass case of products were unusually small with only some of the Year 2 content being displayed in a badly reachable area. I literally had to sneak in to the WB line to take a picture of them because it wasn’t displayed in a public friendly place.
One thing we haven’t seen yet that was displayed was a first look at the LEGO Dimensions Fantastic Beasts Tina Fun Pack (71257). It contains 51 pieces and it includes the Tina Goldstein minifigure along with the Swooping Evil. Tina comes in her gray coat printing along with a gray gumdrop hat although she appears to wear a green one in the movie.
The Swooping Evil, according to Pottermore is a large, butterfly-like creature and the build does look pretty similar to the source material given the limited amount of pieces that comes with the set. There was no mentioning of pricing but I’m guessing it will retail for $11.99 like the other Fun Packs.
The other new set from the Year 2 wave was the Fantastic Beasts Story Pack (71253). As mentioned before, it comes with the Newt Scamander minifigure along with a brick-built Niffler as well as the entrance to the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA). We now also know the piece count of the set coming in at 261 pieces. Again, no mentioning of pricing but I’m guessing it will be $49.99.
There’s now an official image of the new LEGO Dimensions E.T. Fun Pack (71258). It contains 42 pieces and includes the E.T. minifigure with a potted plant accessory and Phone Home for the build which is a red telephone. It’s interesting that they chose to use a telephone but it’s close enough to the classic red Speak & Spell that was used in the movie.
The E.T. Fun Pack (71258) will most likely retail for $11.99 like the other Fun Packs. There’s no word on the release date.
