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.
A few people have emailed me about this so I’m doing what I can to spread the word about it. Some of you may or may not know about Wes Jenkins but he was the Creative Director, Writer, and Designer for LEGO Island back in 1997, a game that was pretty popular and well-received and spawned more LEGO video games such as LEGO Star Wars and two more LEGO Island sequels.
To cut it short, Wes has been hit with illness and financial hardship and needs help as he and his wife are facing eviction and needs some temporary housing. They are currently residing in Texas but if you’ve been to Texas, you know that the weather can be extremely harsh, especially duing the summer. You can read more about Wes’ story over on Rock Raiders United but there is a GoFundMe page set up to raise money for Wes and his wife. Please help spread the word and any support is definitely appreciated.
