    Gah! Unlucky number 13! (I included it twice, thanks @bandit778 for pointing it out to me).

    Down to 5 or 3 gaps... And do people think the Ghostbusters reboot is considered a separate property to the original or all the same?

  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    I would say new, and ninjago/chima would count as well.

    @LostInTranslation, it's not Ghostbusters as far as I'm concerned, it's lame ass parody that isn't funny...

    If Hobbit and LOTR are separate, then GB is different to GB rebooted.

    Ninjago, Chima, and The Lego Movie will all almost certainly count in the list of IPs, especially the latter as I believe it's an IP part owned by Warner (?) and not just TLG.

    Is HP just a team pack not a level pack? Shame if so.

    I thought the 4 figures were from Lord of the Rings not Hobbit so Hobbit isn't one of the franchises represented which leaves 7....right? 

    Where's Bilbo...?

    ^Oooh you're right! I thought Gollum was The Hobbit for some reason but in that case there's another IP gap to fill.
  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,319
    Flintstones and Jetsons locations feature in game even if there are no characters or physical LEGO yet they probably still count

    I can & I have, there's no law on the books that says I have abide by that statement. The trailer says it all to me... Crass, uninspired & completely misses the mark, it's meant to be Ghostbusters not a parody of Ghostbusters & Repossessed.

    and am really really hoping for a Wizard of Oz one with an Emerald City build .. but it would only come with one figure :-(

    It is driving me crazy that Lego has seemingly acquired the licence for Oz only to pretty much ignore it. They rejected the Ideas project which led me to think a set was in the pipeline but still nothing!

    This is what bothers me about many of the Dimensions minifigures. If they give us one figure, then nothing else, then is there really much point in getting the figure. I can understand the gamers wanting the game and the figure being a token of the game, but to do anything building-wise with the minifigure often requires the other (missing) minifigures in the franchise. So if they did a Fred Flintstone, I'd probably want at least a Barney or Wilma to go with him. And you need quite specific parts for those.

    I'd love an ET one (if it is ET). The other characters there are generic enough to make out of normal parts.

    On the frontpage!

    "Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO® Group today announced the expansion of LEGO® DIMENSIONS™, the LEGO® toy and videogame hybrid, with more blockbuster franchises and even bigger gameplay possibilities. New expansion packs broaden the complete selection to 30 of the world’s most popular entertainment brands allowing players to customise their experience by mixing and matching favourite characters and universes with full compatibility. Game features adding to the fun are all-new, four-player competitive Battle Arenas, a first for LEGO® videogames, as well as Story Packs, which provide deep, story-driven gameplay around the biggest theatrical releases and include a fresh LEGO® brick building experience.

    LEGO® Dimensions™ packs based on 16 new entertainment properties will begin launching on September 30, 2016 with the Ghostbusters Story Pack, Adventure Time and Mission: Impossible Level Packs, Harry Potter and Adventure Time Team Packs, and The A-Team Fun Pack. Additional expansion packs based on other highly anticipated films Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and The LEGO® Batman Movie and wildly popular properties The GooniesSonic The HedgehogTeen Titans Go!, LEGO® City Undercover, Knight Rider, The Powerpuff Girls, GremlinsBeetlejuice and E.TThe Extra-Terrestrial will be released in product waves stretching into summer of next year. All expansion packs provide players with continued compatibility to use everything from waves 1-9 interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game. And no new starter pack is required, as all new packs will simply enhance the LEGO® Dimensions™ Starter Pack game and work with the existing LEGO® Toy Pad.“We’ve built upon the existing LEGO® DIMENSIONS™ Starter Pack to expand the gameplay possibilities with entirely new LEGO® experiences that can’t be found anywhere else,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “We can now provide players with even more customization and mash-up opportunities, and all are compatible with the existing game and packs. Battle Arenas also introduce a fun new way for friends and family to join the action together and battle as favorite characters, which is an exciting innovation for LEGO® videogames.”

    “LEGO® DIMENSIONS is a significant part of our LEGO® videogames portfolio, and we are excited to offer fans many more iconic entertainment franchises combined with new, enhanced ways to play,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “TT Games continues to innovate and expand the game experience, which gives players breakthrough digital and physical gameplay with an amazing amount of world-class entertainment properties connected together.”

    “We are excited to continue our partnership with TT Games and WBIE and bring even more characters to life through LEGO® DIMENSIONS™,” said Niels Jørgensen, Vice President, Digital Games for the LEGO® Group. “The videogame has allowed our fans to extend their LEGO® play experience in a whole new way and the new expansion packs will create even more play possibilities through exciting properties.”

    All-new Battle Arenas will offer first-to-LEGO® videogames competitive split-screen local gameplay for up to four players. LEGO® minifigures included in the wave 6 through 9 expansion packs will come with special, golden Toy Tags which unlock a Battle Arena within the Free Play Adventure World of the corresponding entertainment brand. Each Battle Arena has four different gameplay modes and comes with its own traps, special powers and interactive environments that make every battle arena unique.

    The Ghostbusters Story Pack, based on the upcoming film, will provide a complete movie-based gameplay experience with six puzzle-packed levels and new LEGO® Gateway bricks that allow players to build Zhu’s Chinese Restaurant atop the LEGO® Toy Pad. It will also come with a buildable Abby Yates LEGO® minifigure with Proton Blaster and 3-in-1 buildable Ecto-1 which can be rebuilt into the Ectozer and The PerfEcto. The pack unlocks “Rip,” a new Toy Pad mode allowing players to tear open an alternate universe. In this mirror world, players have the ability to solve puzzles and affect objects and other items in the primary universe. And like all gold-tag minifigures purchased, Abby Yates provides access to a new themed Adventure World with its own unique Battle Arena. The Ghostbusters Story Pack is just the first of this new exciting pack type, with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, based on the highly anticipated theatrical release, still to come later this year. The LEGO®DIMENSIONS™ packs will be the exclusive construction toy offering this holiday for the exciting expansion of J.K Rowling’s Wizarding World.

    Story Packs also expand the Starter Pack story with deeper gameplay. In the game’s storyline, the evil Lord Vortech has hidden portions of his powers around the LEGO® Multiverse. As players progress through Story Pack levels, they can unearth and tap into Keystone Runes to use Lord Vortech’s powers against him through all-new Toy Pad modes."

    They really do appear to be aiming a lot of them at adults. They should have made the console look like an atari 2600.

    Quite happy with the final tally, glad that there only ended up being two 00s IPs I know nothing about and that they have in fact largely decided to continue targeting the existing demographic after all!
  • AanchirAanchir United StatesMember Posts: 2,863
    Thrilled to see that LEGO City Undercover is among the new brands being added to the game! There's a lot of 80s nostalgia here, but enough newer brands (Harry Potter, Powerpuff Girls, Teen Titans Go!, Fantastic Beasts, Adventure Time, and the Ghostbusters reboot) that it isn't purely a nostalgia-fest for 30-somethings.

    Plus, while some of the 80s franchises here like the A-Team might not be well-known to kids these days (I was born in 1991 and don't think I knew about the A-Team until around 2006 when I saw it referenced by Homestar Runner), others like E.T., The Goonies, and Sonic seem fairly timeless.

    The new gameplay expansions (story packs and battle arenas) sound like a lot of fun, and show that the creators of LEGO Dimensions are still innovating rather than just cashing in on new franchises. I wonder if there'll be any new "gold tag" characters for existing franchises like Ninjago or The LEGO Movie so that battle arenas can be added to those characters' adventure worlds… the presence of "gold tag" characters for DC Super Heroes shows that LEGO isn't afraid to add battle arenas to the existing adventure worlds.

    well.
    this is interesting.
    it looks more like a expansion pack,
    then a new game with new main plot.
    trying to think of the bests way to explain this.
    ok, Everquest and World of Warcraft are MMORPG's,
    the base games came out, and sold well. some time later a expansion packs come out adding new zones to the games.

    this looks to be the format TT are using for Dimensions.
    i was expecting there to be a main story part 2 picking up from the end of the main story we had in the game so far.
    but it looks more like this will add new content to the main story levels.
    as well as super sized level packs, with 6 levels and not the 1 level like the level packs have.
    not to say what is being added here is bad. no this is good content.
    just i think there missing the boat a little.
    the main story end's with a "i lost this round but i not lost the war" teaser. hinting at more to come and that the bad guy is not been killed. and he will try again.

    yet with wave 6 to 9 there is no hint that the main story is going to get extra levels.
    i am a little disappointed about that. as i found the main story to be grate original content. with good options for more to come.

    we will just have to wait and see what the end product looks like.
    still i think i going to end up buying more  Dimensions.

    Well, I'm sold now.  The sheer variety of characters and the leaps they are taking with licenses that might have some people scratching their heads is just very, very cool.  Too bad we had put our eggs into the Infinity basket.  Oh well, at least the figures were well done.

    This statement stood out to me:

The LEGO®DIMENSIONS™ packs will be the exclusive construction toy offering this holiday for the exciting expansion of J.K Rowling’s Wizarding World.

    I take that to mean that there will be no 'regular' Fantastic Beasts LEGO theme, which surprises me.

    Also, I'm a bit disappointed that the core story is being expanded through 'story packs'. I hoped that we'd get a sequel base game, not that you'd need to spend £100s more on DLC to get more story.

    Bare in mind that we've only seen the first wave of September set pics leaked. Lego have now said that it covers 30 IPs, I've not seen anything to suggest that this means previous IPs are finished.

    As such it's possible that existing IPs will see further packs like character packs. My previous concerns about DC not being mentioned may therefore be unfounded.

    So don't discount Scarecrow from Oz as a possibility.

    Can't go by the packing list either as there is no place for goonies, BeetleJuice, or Powerpuff girls (unless they are connectables). The cool part about the game loading content instead of buying a new one is they can plan some characters on the fly. They have said they worked on content after the release of the starter set.

    Well, considering the new Green Arrow and Supergirl figures come with gold Toy Tags, meaning they unlock a battle arena in the DC Super Heroes Adventure World, TT Games clearly isn't afraid of adding new in-game content to the existing franchises. I honestly hope to see the same for many of the other Wave 1–5 IPs. Green Arrow and Supergirl also demonstrate that LEGO isn't afraid to release new figures without corresponding vehicles.
