It's a sad day. I beat the potentially final level we'll ever see in LEGO Dimensions last evening, it was a fun level, though it did freeze on me once for some unknown reason and introduced a plethora of even more Minifigures we'll never see physical copies of, much like with Wizard of Oz, Doctor Who, Midway Arcade and so on and so forth.
I enjoyed it though, nice use of an old favorite. But this isn't the reason I wanted to post, I took a peek at the extras in the menu, all I can say is it's about bloody time. The Red Brick in The Goonies Adventure World is a Stud Multiplier, finally we get Stud x4 and I'll be able to farm even more studs to max out all of my toys from Years 1 and 2. I'm very grateful for that at least, the pitiful Stud x2 has been nothing but a slow and frustrating climb towards that goal, mostly because I don't leap into finished levels once at 100% just to farm studs and I'm appalling at timing those big bricks to get the purple every time. So this is a Godsend.
If we do in fact see a Year 3, which would be interesting, we'll probably see a Stud x6... However there is a horrifying possibility to contemplate. They might just give us the x6, x8 and x10 multipliers with PPG, TTG and BJ...A sort of, here you are for the end of the game folks.
Oh well, more exploring of Adventure Worlds to complete. I really wish I had Supergirl and Green Arrow to complete the Character Roster. I've been meaning to get the PS4 Starter Pack just to get Supergirl, but keep putting it off and the longer I delay the longer the chance it'll be discontinued if it hasn't already.
Hermione is a hoot, and Chase is nice. I got more than half the gold bricks in the LEGO City world before I finally went into the level, savoring it as long as I could by putting it off some. With the new LEGO Ninjago Movie game being announced/rumoured I believe Dimensions may in fact be seeing a finale of some sort. A pity they can't add any new levels as a proper send-off.
Not sure if a glitch, but apparently the game sees Mouth of The Goonies as Wildstyle or Gandalf, I couldn't access the instructions to upgrade anything when switched to his character, despite it being linked to Sloth's toy tag. A rather odd thing that.
I've played around a little with the Hermione pack, and picked up the Chase McCain pack but haven't played it yet, maybe a little later today.
I knew we were losing levels, X-Box owners have noted that the PPG pack was indeed going to be a Level Pack according to their screen-grabbed dashboard dealie for the downloads. Instead of saying Team Pack it says Level Pack.
I wonder what that sixth and final level we lost would have been, Beetlejuice or TTG? Such a shame.
It's perhaps worth considering setting up some of the vehicles with unique abilities from the level packs (which does mean playing through the levels) - the Tardis in particular adds a few additional areas to some levels. If you have all the fun packs then Doc Brown's train can access all the delorean content.
Wave nine looks great, I'm eagerly anticipating the final three Adventure Worlds being opened up at last. And as a bonus I don't have to kick myself for missing Jokerland in getting a Starfire for my Minifig collection, just that awesome rendition of Harley it came with. *SIGH*
I note that there is no Lord Vortech pack in the reveals, which leaves me to suspect we're still getting a Wave Ten, and perhaps that second GB Pack from the 2016 film that's been off the grid for a while now. They also may have that new IP that was rumoured... I am certainly wondering what that could be.
As for the second GB pack, we haven't heard anything but I wouldn't be surprised if TLG/WB bailed on it after the film underperformed at the box office. The story pack didn't exactly fly off the shelves either, but then again I don't think any of the story packs sold excessively well so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Seriously? They go to all the trouble of making it and hinting at it and having stuff in the game's code for it then they axe it? I'm not buying it unless LEGO and TT themselves declare this the final wave, after all the credits said we'd get up to Wave Ten once all the story levels were beaten, unless that was changed too in a recent update.
Whatever, I'm buying Wave Nine 100% the content and if they don't produce any further sets that will be that for Dimensions.
It's interesting seeing how much the enthusiasm for Dimensions has waned now. I wonder if this is because of the choice of IPs or the rumours of it being discontinued taking effect.
I still have a very mixed opinion on Dimensions over all. I love the IP mash up storyline and style, I like that it's given us some minifigures that we probably wouldn't have even got from Ideas, but I dislike the TTL setup which feels like a money hole, dislike how additional story seemed to be setup but dropped and really dislike that we now have one physical minifigure from some franchises that really could have done with more and hate that some of the secret areas hinted at franchises that never got fleshed out (Flintstones in particular)
I actually feel like I could write quite an in depth "What's missing from" type article about Dimensions.
part of me thinks there might have been a plan for a green lantern character that got scrapped and they decided to tag that skill onto whatever remaining characters they could try to justify it on.
I'm hoping I might get a bit of time this weekend to have a bit of a play on the PPG adventure world.
One of them did NOT have the Supergirl sticker but it was "double labeled" which means it had the SG exclusive inside. And it did.
I'm just hoping Costco puts more out for Christmas this year so I can nab one and at least have SG, it isn't about her ability in game that bugs me, it's about OCD Completionism, 100% Characters means having every tag and every available character in-game.
But that's why they call it OCD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Same here, which is why I've been wrestling over getting a new starter set ever since the one with SG came out. =P
it kind of irritated me that they established a construct ability (just like the DC LEGO games) and never made a Green Lantern to use it with.
I think eventually we would have got Green Lantern, but it looks like that's not going to happen now (and for a big GL fan like myself that's very disappointing).
I AM happy to see that some other figures at least have the ability besides Supergirl (sincecmany of us don't have her).
Can't you pick up the disk from someone that wanted the figure but didn't need the disk? I bought some of the packs when Argos was doing them 3 Supergirl packs for £60, and the packs minus the polybags were easy to get rid of on ebay and not lose money. I ended up giving loads of the disks (from Supergirl, Doctor Who, ET, etc) away as I wasn't going to use them.
still i do need to get my hand's on Lloyd. think i going to have to end up payig full price for him.
and i need the teen titans go teem pack to.
The Teen Titans pack has been available online twice whilst I've been checking for it (missed it once by seconds, got it the second time).
They only buy in sealed packs so no problems with parts missing etc (but also seemingly buy the minifigure bases loose too).
I also bought a stack of PS2 games for £5 and got £28 trade in on those too..
They buy all sorts of stuff, N64s, the pads, master system games, loads of stuff... Check the website. ..
Trying to save for a PS4 pro using this type of hustling, had to spend £18.50 of it on the Sonic pack and a copy of Willie Wonka....
Anyone know anything about this at Target. Sorry for the low quality image. Is this some new figure or is this an old one?
If they survive until Xmas, they will probably end up at £1 each.
