    I'm in the UK, but appreciate all the advice! I'm scouring the net for a good price NIB Starter. Tom is also unbelievably desperate for the Sonic set, so I think we need to get that new as well (there's just something about opening a brand new box which is just right for a birthday present - I've fallen for the consumerist kool aid, haven't I? :-)

    Everything else, I (and he) are very much happy with second-hand, and discs only. We had a great little conversation about it. I imagine there will be exceptions, where the set is really cool, or he just really likes it or something.

    One question. How are the blank discs used? Are the vehicles on separate discs? I'm not sure about how these '...to life' games work. Sorry.

    The vehicles are built while playing the game, you build them IRL then put the blank disc on the writer pad and it writes the ID of the vehicle you built to it.

    The minifigs, vehicles or other accessories are indeed all on their own disc.

    You can rebuild the vehicles at some point, and then you can put the disc on the pad again and it'll write a different ID to it. You can of course not rebuild it IRL and just overwrite the NFC, but who would do such a thing!

    If you don't have the actual bricks but just the pads, marking them with what's written to it is advisable ;)

    Smyths had starter packs going for £20 last time I was in there.

    ^ £15 online... can't believe it. That's £75 cheaper than Lego themselves...

    Haven't played the PS3 for ages, mainly just use it as a BluRay player now.  But £20 for the dimensions Starter might just tempt me.  Especially as I was going to buy the Batman from Bricklink anyway for my Batsuit collection.

    Yeah I know. I remember I got Supergirl version for £30 from them ages ago. Only just gave it to my son Xmas just gone. Haven't really played it much but have loads of packs which I've been picking up for over a year in anticipation. 
  • KeilupKeilup Frisco, TXMember Posts: 179
    Confirming GameStop is a BAD place to pick up remaining Dimensions. Starters are clearances at $49.97. Packs range from $9-29.97.

    better to go to eBay.

    I guess it depends.  I purchased Wii U starter shortly after Christmas for $14.95.  My son's been begging for it and finally gave it to him for b-day recently.  Don't know what was up with that, but it was great deal.

    Hoping to snare more of the packs on clearance somewhere.  Didn't have much luck at Target.  Walmart dropped prices, but still too much.  Hopefully I can catch when those go on clearance.  Then there's Gamestop, 99 cent stores, 5 Below.  How to watch them all...

    I'd recommend keeping an eye on Gamestop. At one point recently EB Games (which is basically Australian Gamestop) had all level and story packs for around $200AUD which is about 110 pounds.
    Gamestop (US) has placed some non-starter sets on clearance but they still have a bulk of larger and starter packs on MSRP.
    Ooh, that sucks. Disregard my advice, then. It seems to be an Australian thing.
    I hope GameStop is good for you guys in Oz.
    Y'all don't get many cheap Lego breaks...

    Yeah, Gamestop (well, EB Games) here is excellent for everything except actual videogames. It's too bad they care a lot more about Mega Construx than Lego...

    @MaffyD

    Worth checking Sainsbury's - my local Superstore had all level/team packs £15 and all fun packs £5 this morning - including some ghat I hadn't seen them stocking before

    Late to the party, Dimensions will be under the tree this year for the PS4. 

    Gives me an excuse to actually use the stuff I’ve bought and collect the trophies. 

    Ive been looking at the prices of some of the sets now and they’re ridiculous. 
    Im filled with a mixture of relief for buying some of them cheap and regret for not buying others even at full price. 

    Is is anyone else currently playing this old game?

    I haven't played for a very long time but I loved the game. Lots of fond memories playing with my son. We have PS3. I'd be interested to know about whether it still works with lack of software support now for it. Do the character discs still download?

    My PS3 controllers have broken so once I replace these I might revisit the game.

    I think I have the complete collection with the PS4 starter set... all still unopened!  So I'll probably end up starting way later than you.  Of course, I didn't intend for this but life happens!  I bought all of these in-period (i.e. not through eBay or at clearance stores) but I got most, if not all, of them at some sort of discount so it doesn't sting too badly that I haven't gotten around to them yet...

    Cool, good to see some love for the game and positive comments. 

    Ive always been a Lego game fan, mainly for the easy trophies at first. 
    Now my son is old enough to play we can both complete the levels together and collect all the other gun stuff after in double time. 
    This game looks a bit different though so I’m looking forward to seeing how it all ties together. 

    I will I’ll make random posts here when we set it up and get to playing.

    I loved this game...still do, but haven't played in a while. Would have loved to see it continue. Needs a proper ending.

    My son and I (but especially my son) really enjoyed the Dimensions game as a whole - we played on the Xbox 360 as well.

    The lasting impact for me though is definitely the awesome array of minifigures from all kinds of odd IPs that we got... Goonies, ET, Gremlins, Doctor Who... just so cool!

    I can't speak for the PS4 but my recollection is that the DLC for the various packs is no longer available for download on the XBOX - I seem to remember an announcement a couple of years back which lead me to pre-emptively download all the DLC so I wouldn't miss out when I got round to playing the extra levels etc.. It might be worth checking the Playstation store to make sure you can still get the downloads for each of the packs.

    Thanks for the heads up.  I did a quick search and from what I found, it looks like they're accessible via the game and not directly on PSN.  Unfortunately, I don't have the sets with me so I can't get check for the downloads.  :(

    That sounds promising - good luck!

    All this talk of Dimensions is starting to tempt me to give it a try on XBOX Series X - it should work fine since all XBOX One games and peripherals are apparently compatible.

    I haven't started. I'm  still on a wii. Mariokart and Lego Star Wars.

    I can confirm that the XBOX One Dimensions game base and disc work perfectly on XBOX Series X as expected. I just cracked open the Back to the Future level pack and played through the story and it was great fun!

    I got the starter sets and a few characters packs a while ago, but ended up returning them because I didn’t want to invest the time and money into this game following its cancellation. I have to say that now, three years later, I’ve been thinking about getting into the game now.

    The only problem is that I’m a completionist, which means that I’m going to want everything released for this game and a lot of that stuff goes for retail, if not more, on eBay and Bricklink. I even had the Sonic level pack for a brief time and that alone goes for $50-60.

    I am guessing the minifigs drive the aftermarket prices and you can buy the game disc/components on bricklink much cheaper if you just want the in-game stuff.

    Yes, the figs have destroyed any chances of us acquiring some of them.  Glad I bought sonic on the cheap among others. 
    We want the Teen Titans GO! sets but they are too pricey. 

    I would like just the discs to complete everything and get the trophies so that’s definitely an option. 

    Played the Ghostbusters movie levels yesterday, anyone notice the 5 pictures you have to destroy in the dining room?
    They are of Jack Nicholson’s character from the shining.

    The majority of them can be had for 50 cents or less, especially if you get them used.  But there seems to be a contingent of about 6-8 (out of 76 character specific tags) that will end up running you $10+.  Not a huge percentage, but I was actually kind of surprised to see ANY of the discs that high, let alone ~10% of them.

    i thought it was/ is a great game, wish it had continued and expanded. i havent played it for ages but it is on the old x-box 360, bit like CCC im still playing with starwars. sadly as i remember it has the glitch on it that is something to do with the Simpsons level or not being able to 100% it 

    Did i read somewhere on here that someone is after a teen titans pack, as i have one spare ( not sure which one, have to dig it out), and a copy of spare discs if anyone wants them

    We are falling down the rabbit hole ....... 




    Anomolies: Slimer has gone for a walk with the disc for Finn (neither are in shot) 

    The Child’s 7th Birthday is on the 30th and some other sets are stashed away...
    Teen Titans (Team and Fun packs)
    Bane
    Master Wu
    Fantastic Beasts story pack
    Bart
    Joker and Harley 

    Currently bidding on .....
    Batman Movie story pack
    Anothet Slimer (just in case we can’t find the other one)
    Scooby Doo (Just won)

    And that’s all I can remember. 

    I need the mini builds for Bane and Master Wu if anyone has spares. 

    Been really licky with purchases from Gumtree which turned out the Teen Titans and a brand new Doctor Who pack among others in 2 separate collections. 

    I should have bought a lot a lot of others when they were rock bottom in price but I never actually thought I’d buy the game. 
    I blame The Child.
