Announced during the surreal Sonic 25th anniversary celebration earlier last week, Warner Bros. showcased the next wave of figures for the ‘toys-to-life’ game Lego Dimensions. The wave features the ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them‘ story pack which will allow players to play in the J.K. Rowling wizard world. Alongside this story pack are several fun packs including Adventure Time, Gremlins, E.T. and Sonic the Hedgehog.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them story pack will feature six levels and a new Lego gateway. It will also come with two figures, a rat-like ‘Niffler’ which can be reconstructed into a ‘Viscious Vulture’ and ‘Sinister Scorpion’ and New Scamander, a wizard who can use the Diffendo, Reparo and Lumos. Additionally, the Fantastic Beasts fun pack contains Tina Goldstein, Newt’s wife who comes with the Aguamenti and Protego spells, and the ‘Swooping Evil’ creature which again, can be reconstructed into a ‘Brutal Broom‘ or the ‘Crawling Creep‘.
The Sonic fan pack will include Sonic the Hedgehog in lego form, the Sonic Speedster and the Tornado. The latter two can be transformed with the Speedster changing into either the Blue Typhoon or Motobug and the Tornado changing into either the Crabmeat or the Eggcatcher. The Sonic figure comes with several recreated worlds from the Sonic games to race through including Green Hills Zone, Emerald Coast and Labyrinth.
The Adventure Time pack will feature Marceline who has a ‘Sonar Smash’ and ‘Bolt Deflector’ special abilities in game. The pack will contain Marcie’s amp which can be transformed into a ‘Shadow Scorpion‘ or the ‘Heavy Metal Monster‘. She will join the other Adventure time figures already out such as Jake the Dog, Lumpy Space Princess and BMO.
The Gremlin pack will feature Gizmo and Stripe with an R.C. Racer that can transform into a Gadget-o-matic or Scarlet Scorpion. The Flash ‘n’ Finish can be transformed into the ‘Rampage Record Player‘ or Stripe’s throne.
The last of the packs is the E.T. pack will enable players to play as E.T. who has the ability to illuminate, fix objects, stealth and telekinesis. It also comes with a ‘phone-home device’ that can change into either a mobile uplink or a satellite.
Each pack will roll out gradually over the coming months after September this year until August 2017.
