Lego Fantastic Beasts Trailer

Releasing the same day as movie theaters bring viewers back into the Wizarding world that started in Harry Potter, Lego Dimensions is also getting swept up in the expanded universe adventure! The Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Story Pack will be available on November 18th. Story Packs are a new addition to this years Lego Dimensions line up. The first featured the 2016 Ghostbusters in a new six level adventure based on the movie. Fantastic Beasts follows suit with six levels based on the new movie, a free roam adventure world to explore, and a themed battle arena. These larger packs also include a replacement for the games portal build. So not only do you get a bunch of in game stuff to explore, you get a bunch of Lego to build a new back onto your Lego Dimensions portal!

Along with a Newt Scamander figure, you also get a creature multi build which can be turned into a Niffler, a Sinister Scorpion, or a Vicious Vulture. As with all multi build goodies, these do actually save to the figures base. So when you rebuild the creature figure, you can then place them on the games portal to save that builds data.

Personally I love when WB has releases like this. I remember long ago when Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King was released in theaters. After we’d watched the movie, I was able to surprise my wife with the video game out in the car. It’s fantastic having simultaneous releases like this.

Last night we were actually treated to a Fantastic Beasts event in downtown Toronto! As guests of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment we were able to check out some of the outfits from the movie on display and even play some multiplayer action in the battle arena this pack unlocks! We will have full coverage coming up soon on the event itself.

Lego Dimensions Gremlins Trailer Featuring Marceline

Posted on November 10, 2016 by Les Major

Marceline and Gizmo

Keeping fun and enjoyable, Lego Dimensions is rolling out even more content later this month! Already the likes of A-Team, Mission Impossible, Ghostbusters (2016), and even Harry Potter have joined the cross franchise ranks. Of course the best of all of this content is the ability to unlock adventure worlds which are typically big free roam stages that allow you to quest around a big Lego level based on that franchise. Unlocking them is really simplistic and even cost effective as well. All you need is any character from a specific Franchise to unlock that adventure world. So even if you don’t want to play the Adventure Time story level, you can just get Marceline and pop into the Adventure Time Adventure World.

On the 18th of November, Lego Dimensions adds the Gremlins team pack to the lineup. Team packs are the mid range sets that come with two vehicles and two characters. They don’t unlock a level, but they do unlock an Adventure World. New to this years expansions is also Battle Arenas. We actually played a bit of the Battle Arena for Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them in downtown Toronto last night at a wonderful event for the movie, but we’ll have more about that later.

Marceline the Vampire Queen is also joining the cast, of course with her axe guitar. She is a Toys R Us timed exclusive, available there also on the 18th. Marceline will be in a fun pack that features her and an additional three build figure.
