Lego Dimensions - New Minifigures

DangermouseDangermouse Baker StreetMember Posts: 17
Hello everyone 

I have been looking through the pictures of the new dimension sets, does anyone have a definitive guide as to which of them are new figures.

If there are any with slight variations I will need to add them to my collection.

Thanks for your help.

    The Doctor Who stuff is all definitley new, The Witch is probably a new variant, Stay Puft as well.

    Looks like there are quite a lot of new minifigs in the dimensions sets, this is going to get expensive!

    Out of interest are these normal or glued in any way ?
  • Coolguy5000Coolguy5000 Ireland Member Posts: 1,576
    Normal  minifigures  and  bricks. The bases are removable  and are what are used for  the game

    Normal 100% legit figures as if they came in a regular set. I got the Scooby Doo ones and compared to the figures from the Mystery Machine and they matched up.
  • sstoroesstoroe Member Posts: 156
    As far as I can tell, these are the figures that are new to Lego Dimensions.  I believe that we will see 21 new ones.  I do believe that Scooby is unique.  I will check in 5 minutes.

    I just opened mine and the Scooby is definitely a new head.  Shaggy is a duplicate.  He now has a tongue outside of his mouth.

    Here are all 5 Scoobys

    Even though we have 5 unique Scoobys in the sets now.  The Scooby with his teeth bared is really a combo of two of the others.  So we have 4 unique heads and 2 unique bodies.

    I just finished poking through all of these.  The original list stands with the exception of the following.
    • Gandalf has a new head.
    • Bad Cop and WyldStyle are the same figures as in set 70819.  They just showed the alternate faces and I missed it.
    • Batman, Legolas, Scooby, Gandalf are all have something new about them.

    Thank you for the information that is reall useful but unfortunately more expensive than expected.

    Can I ask another question.  

    If I buy a pack then then remove the figure, can the game still be played with the disc?

    if so it may be an option to buy new then sell the rest in eBay

    Yeah it sounds like you can do that @Dangermouse, however I think a lot of people are planning to do that, so I can't see it being worth the effort with the pennies the discs will ultimately probably be worth.

    The problem with this sort of technology is it's all just NFC, so if you have an NFC phone there will inevitably be apps that will broadcast the same information that the NFC chip on the device would.

    Therefore, all the values are in the minifig, because it's trivial (although possibly illegal) to replicate the the rest of it using technology most people have at home anyway.

    Maybe I'll be proven wrong, but I just can't see there being any kind of worthwhile sellers market for just the discs, but then, all sorts of stuff gets shifted on eBay for peanuts, so who knows.
  • yys4uyys4u USA SoCalMember Posts: 1,093
    I think there might be a market for the minifig disks. Maybe not big, but I already considered buying some aftermarket. I just got them game and very early on there are some bricks that only Superman can break, I didn't buy the superman pack, and don't really want to buy any fun pack, character packs, or level packs that don't have something exclusive to it, but I wouldn't mind buying the disk for cheap and putting one of the superman figures I already own on the disk (for aesthetic purposes) and using that character in the game.

    Well.  It appears that Gimli also has a new head.  So all three LOTR's characters have new heads.

    I dunno I compared my Gandalf from the starter pack to a couple gandalfs I have and they look identical. Maybe a little more vibrant print. One of my older gandalfs had 1 eyebrow wrinkle rather than 2 but the gandalf head from the Wizard Battle set looks the same.

    TRU has them too in the electronics section. Yesterday, they had a promo where you got a 10.00 gift card with a 35.00 purchase. In store only. Don't know if it's still running.

    Side question: Any of the packs exclusive to a particular store? TRU does not have Dr Who.

    The Doctor Who Level Pack is not out until November 3. Here's a chart showing all the release dates for the currently announced packs: https://flic.kr/p/xAYCHo

    Bear in mind that there is a Doctor Who themed level in the Starter Pack in which the Doctor shows up as a character. So if you've seen Doctor Who related content in game reviews that would probably be the reason.

    There ARE some store exclusive packs. Though the only ones I know of are the Jay and Laval fun packs, which are exclusive to Toys 'R' Us in North America.

    Something tells me that if they were going for the least desirable packs they'd have picked Cragger or Eris instead of Laval, who's basically the poster child for the LEGO Legends of Chima theme. Plus, bear in mind that a big part of the LEGO Dimensions audience is inevitably going to be kids...

    On that note, I am still quite surprised that all three Chima packs include unique figs. You'd think they'd just reuse the fire CHI costumes from this year and last year, but nope, they gave each character a brand-new torso. Whereas the Ninjago figs, representing a far more popular theme, all seem to be exact copies of figs from other sets. Kinda peculiar...

    If they were going for "least desirable packs" they would have made the Eris or Cragger packs exclusive, rather than a character who is arguably the main protagonist of the entire Chima story.

    I think it's more a case where Toys R Us (a dedicated toy retailer) recognizes the niche value of Lego's original IPs (even the on-its-way-out Chima theme), even in a game which seems to revolve around licensed characters for the most part.

    I was referencing Jay.  But I see we have some folks with Chima knowledge!

    Ah - all of these are for kids.  I never lose sight of that!

    I was surprised to see Chima, much less with new parts. My kids and I loved Chima, but its moved on. Not sure if any of us are excited to see it as part of the game. We will probably get Laval to access the Chima open world though. I am surprised that Laval and Jay are exclusive, but perhaps by making less desirable figures exclusive they are hoping they will sell better. I do like that Eris and Nya were included. My daughters are looking for more of the female characters. Right now they are liking the Wicked Witch.

    If I understand you correctly, that's just what I hope happens.  My boys and I love playing video games together, especially the LEGO games.  They understand how a little patience (in the video game market) typically turns into big savings.  So while we haven't gotten into Disney Infinity or Skylanders, I think we may get into Dimensions.  I'm counting on a big price drop next year (<$50?) when Dimensions Part 2 is released, and then picking up game discs from collectors who are just interested in the figures.  Certainly, we will buy some complete sets for the mini models/figures, but I'm sure they would be happy to skip some figures and just get added game content with the discs.  

    However, this being LEGO, maybe it doesn't go the route of "normal" video games and retains its $100 price point.  Maybe Dimensions Part 2 (with redesigned magic portal) isn't released and they choose to add on to the game simply through character fun packs etc.

    Regardless, for all those solely interested in the figures, I'm sure my boys would be happy to take all those nasty games discs off your hands.

    That's what they've said they're doing - the portal is a one off purchase that will last through the years. Any expansion beyond that will be through the packs.

    LEGO has established that all future expansions will be compatible with the original starter pack, so even if they do introduce a game expansion or updated starter pack, it will not be necessary to use future figures the way new Disney Infinity or Skylanders starter packs are.

    Even so, I can believe there might be price reductions for the LEGO Dimensions in the future, just by virtue of the technology of the Toy Pad getting cheaper. The cost of LEGO bricks tends to stay fairly stable from year to year, aside from inflation. But digital technology is a much different story. Just look at how many video game console prices tend to fall after they've been out for a while.

    As I understand it, the LEGO Dimensions Toy Pad is more complex than its Skylanders or Disney Infinity counterparts just by virtue of it being used to do more things in the game (meaning the different positions on the toy pad make a much bigger difference than in Disney Infinity which just has two interchangeable spots to place figures and one to place level tokens). It's got a bunch of colored lights to boot.

    Aside from the bricks, that complexity might be another factor driving up the cost of the LEGO Dimensions starter pack compared to its competitors. But that's the sort of thing that could easily get less expensive with time, and I imagine it would be in LEGO Dimensions' best interest if it saw a price reduction to reflect that.

    ^What I find interesting to consider with the 'forward compatible' thing is, if they bring out a completely new game, e.g LEGO Dimensions 2, presumably the three main characters will still have to be Wildstyle, Batman and Gandalf, otherwise you'd need to buy a new starter pack to be able to follow the story. 

    I like the idea of the forward compatibility, it does make it seem slightly better value (though still way too expensive compared to other TTL) but ultimately I can't get on board with the idea until I see the second game.

    I suspect people are reading far too much into the forward compatible thing.

    To be clear, with Infinity you don't need to buy a new starter pack each time. Just a level pack and copy of the game disc. I don't believe any future steps forward in Dimensions will be any cheaper than that.

    The infinity board has been forward compatible. Even all the characters are forward compatible. The reality though is that you basically get a better deal just buying a new starter pack, even on day one.

    Why would there need to be a second game when they can release more new content by way of level packs, etc.?

    Is that right @cheshirecat ? I thought I'd read some complaints about the first and second games not being fully compatible, although now I think about it that might have just been something to do with characters from Cars not being usable in any other setting or might have been about newer characters not being back compatible....people whining about a game I have little interest in tends to end up as like background noise in my memory...

    Still with the way that it's been promoted (while not mentioned in any trailer, all the developer videos seem to at least mention the forward compatibility) if they bring out a second game and it requires 3 new main characters to be bought, you're basically going to be buying a new starter pack every time, so it wouldn't really worth them mentioning.

    *A quick look around the net reveals that the complaints I'm remembering are probably to do with some characters only being usable in specific level packs etc - which explains the Dimensions push of play as any character in any world - the DI bases are indeed forward compatible.

    @Shib So it is complicated... 

    All characters from previous versions of infinity will work but only in the sandbox stlye toybox part of infinity not the play sets (levels). So none of the marvel superheroes characters can appear in the star wars story mode of DI3 but they can play alongside darth vader et al in the toybox and toybox games.

    Indeed, the play sets require the correct characters, not just from the correct version of DI but the correct story. So for example ironman works in the avengers, spiderman and GotG play sets of DI2 but captain america only the avengers, groot only GotG etc. Although this seems to be relaxed a bit in DI3.

    Another aspect, and probably what people complained about is that a DI1 play set (level) wont work in DI2 or 3. Similarly a DI2 play set wount work in DI3. 

    In terms of hardware if you have the board from DI1 then it will work on DI2 or DI3. you would need to buy the disc and to play more than just the toybox you would need to buy a play set which unlocks that story/level and comes with 2 characters to play. 

    So its entirely possible for DI to say that you don't need to buy a new starter pack each time as well, and to be honest I don't believe that Dimensions will continue much beyond the current announcements without a new Dimensions 2 game disc being sold.

  • ShibShib UKMember Posts: 5,456
    That ties up with what I'd just gleaned from some websites, and I get why there would be a lot of criticism of that method.

    It seems to me that while level packs might add a bit of life to the game, they would probably struggle to do a big multiverse story line with just a level pack and would want to do another full game if this one sells well.

    I'm still massively undecided on the whole thing but ultimately the further I look down this rabbit hole, the more convinced I am that the biggest issue is just the ridiculous pricing.
    Amanda1983
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,331
    Yep, if the 30 minutes to complete the bttf level is accurate then its crazy and totally unsustainable without a whole new Dimensions 2 disc.

    My point is that there isn't much difference between a new game and new content. Why release a new game when they can sell new content in small chunks and likely make more money doing so?

    It depends greatly on how the consumers see value.  
    At Christmas, when grandpa buys lil Johnny the latest Skylanders for $75 it comes in big box with new characters and new portal.  
    On the other hand, when grandpa buys 2 LEGO Dimensions expansion packs + 1 character pack for $75, lil Johnny gets 3 small boxes containing 5 figs + 5 minibuilds.  
    Assuming the same hours of enjoyment, which product would AVERAGE consumers perceive as better value?
