Now Available for LEGO DimensionsJason Love

The two big packs here are the "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" Story Pack, and the "Sonic the Hedgehog" Level Pack. The former includes a new hero figure (Newt Scamander) and a new vehicle (the Niffler) along with six new levels that follow the story of the film/play/book. It also lets you change the LEGO Gateway on the Portal Pad to the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) building. These story packs are the new tier of expansions for LEGO Dimensions this year, with the first one based on the new "Ghostbusters" movie from this past summer.

LEGO Batman Movie and Knight Rider Coming to LEGO Dimensions in 2017Jason Love

The third Story Pack, which is a new pack this cycle and includes new levels, characters, gadgets/vehicles, and a new gateway design for the Toy Pad, will be based on the "LEGO Batman Movie" that's slated for a February 10, 2017 release. This pack will include Batgirl and Robin minifigures, a Batwing vehicle, and a LEGO Gateway bricks to build the infamous Bat-Computer on the pad. The Story Pack will also include six new story levels that will "provide a deep, story-driven gameplay experience with iconic DC characters" and a new Adventure World to explore based around the movie.

The new figure will not only be able to use the same powers as her cousin, which includes laser beams, flight, and super strength, she'll also be able to tap into the powers of the Red Lantern ring. With the ring she'll be able to fire red bolts and lasers as well as use "Lantern Constructs." It's not clear what that means in-game, but I'm sure there will be some doors/switches/other devices that will require that ability in order to get some hidden item.

Similar to the Ghostbusters "story pack," the Fantastic Beasts pack will include six new playable levels, a minifigure (Newt Scamander), what could be a vehicle or gadget (a Niffler animal), and a new configuration for your LEGO Toy Pad (based on the Magical Congress of the United States of America, or MACUSA, building). The pack is listed for 39.99 pounds sterling, which will translate to $49.99 over in the States, and appears to be slated for a November release.

When the fall comes around, things kick off with Adventure Time and Mission: Impossible "level packs," Harry Potter and Adventure Time "team packs," and an A-Team "fun pack." As a quick breakdown of what all of that means, the level packs include a new level, new character, and a couple new gadgets or vehicles, the team packs include characters and gadgets/vehicles, and the fun packs include a character and a gadget or vehicle. All of this new content will be compatible with the existing LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, so you won't need to buy anything but the expansions.

The big feature of any level pack for LEGO Dimensions is a new playable level for the game. With the Midway Arcade Level Pack, you'll get that and over 20 classic arcade games. That's right, Warner Bros has gone ahead and just stealth released a "Midway Arcade Hits" collection. Inside of another game! Who does that?!

I was initially attracted to LEGO Dimensions for one reason: you could play as the Doctor and fly the T.A.R.D.I.S. I expected it would be a fun little side thing in the game, but that’s all. What I did not expect was for TT Games and Warner Bros to incorporate all the best bits of so many intellectual properties into one cohesive form while r...

The Ghostbusters pack includes "A Spook Central Adventure" level that gives players a chance traverse through a ghost infested New York. Expect to see some familiar faces, namely the main antagonist Gozer. Build the minifigure Peter Venkman with his Proton Pack, the Ecto-1 vehicle and Ghost Trap to help save New York from a marshmallowy demise.

If you want to bounce on over to Bedrock, or Future Earth or whatever the Jetson family calls their domicile in the sky, it'll cost you. You'll need help from inter-dimension being The Doctor, and also, for some reason, the Simpsons. Video games are weird.

The way this feature works is simple. Let's say you want to access an area that requires you to have a Simpsons character, but you don't particularly want to run out and shell out $30 for the Level Pack. No problem. Using the in-game stud currency, players will now be able to temporarily unlock a selection of characters from the Wave 1 roster list. This feature arrives just in time as the Wave 2 series of characters, which includes Doctor Who, are now available.

We haven't had a chance yet to review the title or put together an FAQ on co-op, but it appears not much changes from that side as you find in many other of the TT Lego titles. Biggest difference this time around is that your in-game avatar is determined by the Lego figures you've purchased, either in the "Starter Pack" or one of the various themed add-ons.

Unikitty is from the mega popular The LEGO Movie and was a rather unhinged hybrid creature played by Alison Brie.  In keeping with many of the Dimensions trailers, the Unikitty teaser blends the real life actors with their virtual counterpart - what happens when Alison finds a strange box sitting on her desk?
