I am a bit of a completist with minifigs. So when I saw the dimensions packs come out I sighed, thinking how my previously complete LOTR/TH collection was no longer the case. Upon investigation I noticed that the Dimensions Gimli minifigure has an ID of dim007. I noticed too that Gimli from LOTR has an ID of lor013. But the figures look identical.
The same seems to hold true for Legolas (dim008/lor015). However, Gollum has the same code (lor031). Are these just database issues or are the dimensions figures uniques/new?
Other notable ones
- Peter Venkman appears to be unique, as the one from the Firehouse (which is similar) has been slimed.
- Slimer is definitely new too (although again rather similar)
- The Harley Quinn/Joker set is odd, in that Harley is listed as the same as before but Joker not. Saying that the only difference with him seems to be the single-sided head compared to the existing double one
- Doc Brown just seems to have a different hair piece
- Gandalf looks identical (lor001 and dim001)
