LEGO® Dimensions™ Expansion Packs Based on The LEGO Batman Movie and Knight Rider Announced for February 2017 Release
New Story Pack Lets Gamers Play LEGO Batman’s Big Screen Adventure
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today revealed details around three highly collectable expansion packs for LEGO® Dimensions™, the LEGO toy and videogame hybrid, that will be available on February 10, 2017. The LEGO® Batman Movie Story Pack, Excalibur Batman Fun Pack and Knight Rider Fun Pack will broaden the selection of the world’s most popular entertainment brands allowing players to customize their experience by mixing and matching favorite characters and universes with full compatibility.
Coinciding with the release of the upcoming film on which it’s based, The LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack, will provide a deep, story-driven gameplay experience with iconic DC characters in six puzzle-packed levels and new LEGO Gateway bricks that allow players to build the Bat-Computer atop the LEGO Toy Pad. The pack comes with buildable Batgirl and Robin minifigures and the 3-in-1 buildable Batwing which can be rebuilt into The Black Thunder and Bat-Tank. Gamers can play the complete movie and band together with Batgirl and Robin to fight off the Joker and his team of villains. Batgirl’s batarang, glide and stealth abilities can reach areas with high security access and Robin’s agility and dive skills provide sneak access. Players can also transform Robin into the Nightwing, utilize his vine cut, and deflect moves for more crime-fighting adventures. Batgirl and Robin provide access to the new The LEGO Batman Movie Adventure World with its own unique Battle Arena with competitive split-screen local gameplay for up to four players.
Batman fans can broaden their LEGO Dimensions gameplay with Excalibur Batman from The LEGO Batman Movie. The Fun Pack comes with a buildable Batman minifigure and a 3-in-1 buildable Bionic Steed which can be rebuilt into the Bat-Raptor and Ultrabat for additional in-game abilities. Players can use Batman’s Master Builder and Sword Switching abilities to solve puzzles and take down enemies. Batman also provides access to The LEGO Batman Movie Adventure World and Battle Arena. The Excalibur Batman Fun Pack will release in North America first at Target.
Michael Knight and K.I.T.T. from the classic 80s TV series, Knight Rider, are also coming to LEGO Dimensions. Players can add the iconic duo with the Knight Rider Fun Pack featuring a buildable Michael Knight minifigure, and a rebuildable 3-in-1 K.I.T.T., that can be rebuilt into the K.I.T.T. Jet and Goliath Armored Semi for upgraded in-game powers.
In the game, players can activate Michael Knight’s dodging and dash abilities to solve puzzles and overpower enemies or use his Wrist Watch to uncover secrets behind x-ray walls and outsmart enemies by hacking into terminals and following trails. Players can also fight crime on four wheels with K.I.T.T., the highly advanced, artificially intelligent robotic vehicle, to boost their gameplay. Michael Knight provides access to a new Knight Rider Adventure World with its own unique Battle Arena. The Knight Rider Fun Pack will release in North America first at GameStop.

If you want to get your hands on the recently announced LEGO Ideas Caterham Seven 620R (21307) early, you may want to check out Toys R Us. Currently, you can purchase it online at the normal retail price of $79.99 and it looks like it has ship-to-home and also in-store pickup if your store has it in stock.
The Caterham Seven will be available on October 1, if you can wait a few more weeks, where there are some pretty nice promotions that will be going on including the exclusive LEGO Advent Calendar and Double VIP Points. Thanks to David4 for the heads up. I’ll have my review of the set in the next couple of days so stay tuned for that.
Update: Looks like TRU found out it wasn’t supposed to be on sale yet and they took the page down.
It’s been heck of a long day but it’s time to relax and do some posts on what’s been going on in the LEGO world the past half day or so. The LEGO Batman Movie forums over on Eurobricks has been pretty active with talks about some of the rumored sets that will be released in conjunction with the movie.
We already know about the two sets that were revealed during San Diego Comic Con with The Batmobile (70905) and The Joker Notorious Lowrider (70906) which are the medium-sized sets in the wave.
CM4Sci has revealed Catwoman’s Cycle (70901) which retails for $19.99 and includes minifigures of Batgirl, Robin, and Catwoman. The build includes Catwoman’s bike and a jewelry store front. It’s also mentioned that this is not the smallest set in the wave.
There’s also rumored set called The Scuttler. Some of the minifigures that are mentioned in that set include Poison Ivy with a plant monster, Batman with a jetpack, Robin, Barbara, and Commissioner Gordon in Gala outfits and a spirit. The Scuttler itself is sort of a mech shaped like a bat and walking on its limbs.
As with any rumors, take this info with some caution but they can most likely be true considering CM4sci’s track record. I’ve also reported on some other The LEGO Batman Movie rumors last month if you want to check those out as well.
I’ve received a couple of emails from readers notifying me that the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Kylo Ren’s Command Shuttle (30279) have started showing up at various Target stores in the Halloween section and in the checkout aisles. If you remember, this particular polybag was included with GameStop pre-orders of the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Video Game. Since then as far as I know, it had a pretty limited release with it being available only at LEGOLAND parks.
Today is Batman Day and to celebrate the character’s 75 anniversary, Warner Bros. has released a new poster for The LEGO Batman Movie. The poster features Will Arnett’s Batman springing into action with some simple words of advice, “Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman.”
The LEGO Batman Movie is set for release on Feb. 10, 2017 and remember, always be Batman.
Remember last year when Warner Bros. announced the new DC Super Hero Girls and LEGO would be producing some sets in conjunction with it? Well there looks to be some concrete information about the LEGO DC Super Hero Girls sets with some set numbers and possible set names courtesy of CM4sci on Eurobricks.
He mentions that each set would come with a small crystal-like villain build. The box packaging is “blue and sparkly” and is better that expected. There are six sets that will be available in February. Without me seeing what the sets are like, I’ll just quote what was mentioned in CM4Sci’s post from what he’s seen.
Batgirl’s Batjet (41230) – A small and round Batwing, it actually looks really neat. It uses the round UFO corners as the wings in a dark blue. In front is a pretty well hidden net launcher. Batgirl is in no way final but she’s sitting in the jet. There’s a small buggy for the yellow bad guy, who seems to be holding a phone?
Harley Quinn’s Cafe Rescue (41231) – Small, two floor cafe build labled ‘Capes & Cowls’ Harley Quinn is on a flying net shooter with wings? The piece usually used for net launchers is the middle. Steve (is that his name?) Is captured in a vine on the top floor. There’s a green crystal baddie included.
The High School (41232) – It looks so cool – Giant central tower that with stickers gives off the perspective that it’s growing to a sharp point. Each side has a small part of the school with a flex tube used to create a cool design for the window. On top there’s a giant pink diamond. Now, what’s cool about this is that the entire center tower can be opened up to let loose Poison Ivy’s bike that shoots flowers! It creates a giant ramp. I don’t know who the bad guy is but they’re in a small, black/purple flying jet with a giant claw in front, flying towards the pink diamond. There are things like disc shooters to fight off the bad guys. The set comes with Supergirl, Poison Ivy, what looks like a creature Poison Ivy has created, Bad Guy, and 2 crystal baddies.
Lashina’s Action Rider (41233) – A small wheeled vehicle she sits on that is shoots studs at Krypto’s doghouse. Krypto uses a generic Friends dog but I’m sure there’ll be a new piece for him. Comes with Lashina, Krypto, and blue crystal bad creature.
Bumblebee’s Helicopter (41234) – Small spherical, dual rotor helicopter. The crystal guys are carrying a trunk full of yellow stuff. Comes with Bumblebee and two red crystal bad creatures.
Wonder Woman’s Dorm (41235) – Dorm has a closet, a bed with window, and a desk in patriotic colors. The transparent motorcycle sits atop a spinning platform. Wonder Woman comes with her lasso and is fighting an orange crystal creature.
Of course, none of this info is deemed confirmed until the official images are released but CM4Sci has a pretty good track record with his info.
