Red Dwarf Area Found in LEGO Dimensions

Here’s something interesting coming out of Twitter earlier today. LEGO Dimensions designer/writer Joe Moore tweeted out an image of the Red Dwarf area which was found in the Fantastic Beasts Story Pack (71253). As we know, Red Dwarf isn’t an official LEGO license yet, as far was we know, however there was a Red Dwarf project that just hit 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas just last week.

Does this actually we’ll be getting a Red Dwarf expansion pack in the future? Not necessarily. If you remember from last year, there were stages that included the Jetsons and Flintstones but there weren’t any physical sets that came out of that so this could just be an easter egg like the previous ones.

    I feel like there is going to be a good chance that they make red dwarf since it’s a show that has been going so long that it will appeal to both old and young lego fans. Also nice how they have a scene from the latest series.

    Red Dwarf would be a new license though, where as the Jetsons/Flinstones were tied to liscense they already had (Or HAL for that matter)

  • Scarilian

    Means we should get a Dimensions set… however at the same time it means chances of the Lego Ideas set getting made are now slim – given they probably were already working on something similar.

        In the absence of packs, I inferred that Jetsons and Flinstones content were tangentially related Scooby Doo – all three are Hanna Barbera cartoons. Maybe Red Dwarf is a tangential nod to Dr. Who (via BBC)?

        Regardless, the Red Dwarf reference is a very welcome surprise. First, I was all but sure that the series is too adult for Lego. Second, but for this thread, I would not have been aware that an eleventh and twelfth season are coming (making this a great time to release a Red Dwarf-themed set).

          Either way, overall it gives a higher chance of us getting a Red Dwarf set.

          It shows they have the license rights to include aspects of Red Dwarf and the discovery of this Easter egg at this time during the review stage and its related hype could tip Lego’s hand to make a set.
