It seems only fitting for a LEGO game to finally be the one to break characters out of their respective properties and slap them in other worlds. After all, the first thing you do with a jumble of LEGO sets is throw Gandalf in an X-Wing and have him face off against Superman. Well, that's what I do, at least.

The fine folks at LEGO have been rolling out new announcements for properties they intend to include in this tidy little package, and it ain't small.
