BACK FROM THE FUTURE, OR THE PAST, OR SOMETHING...
It's been a while between updates. Oops.
Anyway, we're still here, and we're still mad about LEGO
Dimensions. Just sometimes life gets in the way of fun.
So, what's new? Well, the character profiles are now completely up
to date (Supergirl has even joined the party), and all abilities are
We can't wait to review the Sonic the Hedgehog
Level Pack and Fantastic Beasts Story Pack, however our Toy Pad has
died a sudden and very annoying death, so we have to get hold of
another one somehow.
Anyway, please stay tuned for more
regular updates. Oh, and Happy New Year!
ARE YOU READY TO LEAD AN EVIL ARMY OF THE UNDEAD?!
As you may recall, Marceline the Vampire
Queen had a bit(e) of a problem before Christmas.
seems that she's managed to get the boffins in order, and her Fun
Pack is all like working and stuff and in stock at Big W online

exclusive to them, so probably best to get in quick.
confirm that our one is totally working fine.
OK, so we're getting off the Dimensional
track again, but LEGO have just announced that the latest Ideas
release will hit in January. As you've likely discerned from the
image above, it's a set of brick-built Adventure Time
characters. The set will contain 495 pieces, and is numbered 21308.
While we'd have preferred more minifigures, we guess it has a
IF YOU LOG INTO YOUR GAME TODAY...
You're sure of a big surprise. If you
log into your game today, you'll never believe your eyes.
Another 12 gig update is there, to make you want to pull out your
hair, as TT don't know how to do little patches. >:(
MAKE IT, MAKE IT MINE...
Crafting your very own world out of LEGO
is great fun, but you need megatonnes of it to really go to town.
Naturally, most of us can't afford such luxuries.
So what to
do? Well, wonder no more, for LEGO Worlds, which has been
in beta for a while now on the PC, is coming to PS4 and Xbox One on
February 22, 2017.
We could rewrite the press release, but
the important stuff is basically within two quotes, so it's cut and
"In LEGO Worlds, players will go on an
exciting journey to become a Master Builder, in an open-world made
completely of LEGO-built environments," says Jonathan Smith, Head of
Production, TT Games. "Whether customising characters, exploring in
vehicles, building structures, or discovering an expansive range of
items, characters and creatures throughout the worlds, thereĺs the
freedom to create anything imaginable."
expands our LEGO videogame franchise with a new experience that
embodies all the fun of physical LEGO brick building," says David
Haddad, President of Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment. "TT
Games has created an expansive, digital universe that combines
unlimited creativity with the LEGO humour that fans love."
AH McCAIN, YOU'VE DONE IT AGAIN!
A few years back, Nintendo's Wii U was
home to a pretty natty LEGO exclusive. That was, of course, LEGO
City Undercover, starring future LEGO Dimensions Year
Two addition Chase McCain.
Anyway, great news is that the
kid-friendly Grand Theft Auto homage is being ported to the
PS4, Xbone, PC and forthcoming Nintendo Switch for release by WB
Games at some point during Autumn next year. Yay!
BUT WAIT, THERE'S SNORE!
Just when you thought it was safe to go
back to LEGO Dimensions after the massive download that was
update 1.14, it's time for all the 12GB (PS4) delight of 1.15!
We're not sure what this second massive update in a week does,
but we do know that while we admire their tenacity, the LD
team really have to look at streamlining their update process.
Surely they can come up with more bandwidth-friendly patches?
It's Wave 7 release day - yay! If you're
after the Fantasic Beasts Story Pack, Sonic the
Hedgehog Level Pack, Gremlins Team Pack plus the
ET and Tina Goldstein Fun Packs, they are currently at
absolutely crazy (possibly wrong) prices on the official LEGO shop.
Sadly the Big W Adventure Time exclusive Marceline the
Vampire Queen isn't available there - in fact (with thanks to the
Mon Amiibo site for the heads up) it now isn't due until
sometime in December.
Some of the recent Wave
6 sets packs are also up for similar nutso low pricing.
Seriously, if you can wait a couple of weeks then you can get all of
them delivered (and that costs $30!) for a total of just over $80!
Yes, you read that right. Plus you get a free LEGO toy soldier
We'd suggest getting in speedier than
Sonic himself, and crossing digits that they don't cancel orders due
to a pricing flub. Go straight to the action here -

Hey, did somebody spill some Red Dwarf
in our LEGO Dimensions? Yep, and it's no rumour, for it's
from one of the LD team in Joe Moore, who Tweeted this pic
with the caption "Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for brick-fast".
It's apparently a hidden area in the Fantastic Beasts
Story Pack that's out tomorrow. While it would be easy to get
excited that this might mean Red Dwarf minifigures and more
in Year Three (Kryten FTW!), don't forget that The Flintstones
and The Jetsons appeared in Year One, seemingly just as
Hanna Barbera stablemates of the Scooby gang (and to tease us

No, we're not knocking back a few ales,
rather that's the sound of our modem trying to cope with the almost
12GB (PS4) update that's available now for LEGO Dimensions.
Seriously guys, we don't all have speedy internet, can't you make
these things smaller? Anyway, it's preparing the game for Friday's
release of the new Year Two packs. Yes, only three more sleeps now!
One week. Seven days. 168 hours. 10080
minutes. 604800 seconds... Or close to it. That's when we'll be able
to get our grubby (or clean) mitts on the second wave of Year Two
LEGO Dimensions releases. More specifically, that's the
Fantastic Beasts Story Pack, Sonic the Hedgehog Level
Pack (we SO can't wait for this one!), Gremlins Team Pack
plus the ET, Marceline from Adventure Time and
Tina Goldstein (Fantastic Beasts) Fun Packs. We wish we had
Doc Brown's DeLorean at this juncture. Well, a real working one!
O POINTY HAT, O POINTY, POINTY... It's time for another episode of
Meet the Hero! In this one, magical type Dumbledo- erm,
Gandalf the Grey - introduces us to a new magical type, Newt
Scamander from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. He
is, of course, the star of the next Story Pack, which hits next
Friday (November 18) along with a whole bunch of other cool new
LEGO Dimensions stuff.
I CAN DO THAT, I CAN DO THAT...
Have you ever been in the middle of a game of LEGO Dimensions
and had to ponder which character has what abilities for the puzzle
that you're up to? No? Well, our new 'ABILITIES' section won't be of
much use to you. But others may find it useful, as you can quickly
pick an ability and click through to see all the characters that
possess it. It's just under the 'PROFILES' section over to the right
there. Hoping some of you find it handy...
THERE AIN'T A BETTER BAT, AND THAT'S THAT! The LEGO Movie totally
rocked, so it would be hard to top it. But that man in black (and
sometimes very, very dark grey), Batman, has his own movie coming in

REVIEW: GHOSTBUSTERS STORY PACK
Wondering what our thoughts are on the
first ever LEGO Dimensions Story Pack? Well, our review is
just a click away here!
I'VE SEEN SOME STUFF THAT WOULD REALLY MAKE YOU SAY "LIKE WHAT?!"
Ooo, it's new AdventureMeet the Hero! time!
Marceline introduces us to the Gremlins - the adorbs (but still
hardcore) Gizmo, and the totes nasty Stripe...
THE DLC IS HERE, I CAN SENSE IT...
If you want a quick break from all of your
Dimensioning, a new DLC pack has just hit for LEGO Star Wars:
The Force Awakens.
The First Order Siege of Takodana
Level Pack lets us experience the assault on Maz Kanataĺs castle in
a new way - from the perspective of the First Order. We even get to
go all dark side and play as Kylo Ren - yeah, crush that Resistance!
New playable/unlockable characters and vehicles include: Kylo
Ren, FN-1044 (stormtrooper), Jashco Phurus, Rosser Weno,
Stormtrooper Officer, Strono Tuggs, Thromba, Laparo, Jakku Freighter
(Full-size Vehicle) and the Jakku Freighter (Microfighter Vehicle).
JUST SMILE AND WAVE GIRLS, SMILE AND WAVE!
We've finally had a chance to get all of the Wave 6 LEGO
Dimensions characters added to our 'PROFILES' section -
including their abilities and downloadable instructions for building
all the associated vehicles/accessories. Yay! So, save for Supergirl
we're now completely up to date. Just go to a character's
relevant franchise at the right and pick 'n' choose away! Keep an
eye out (ouchy!) for reviews of all the playable Wave 6 packs very
WE ALL LIVE IN A TUB OF MARGARINE!
OK, it isn't LEGO Dimensions
related. It isn't even LEGO games related. But it's one of the
coolest LEGO sets we've ever seen, it's coming on November 1,
and we're excited!
Yes, it's The Beatles' Yellow Submarine,
based on the fab-ulously trippy 1968 animated movie of the same
name. Not only do you get the seriously groovy sub in the set, but
all four Beatles (who fit neatly inside) and even the 'Nowhere Man',
Jeremy Hillary Boob. The lack of a Blue Meanie seems to be a big
oversight, but we can't have everything.
Anyway, check out
the super-fun animation above to see the set in action. For more
info on the set, includign images, try clicking
right about here.
Meanwhile, we'll keep dreaming about
our idea for LEGO Rock Band Dimensions. Imagine all manner
of famous musical types in playable minifig form! From The Beatles
to Bowie, The Cure's Robert Smith, Lady Gaga, her inspiration
Madonna, Prince, Pulp's Jarvis Cocker, Oasis' Gallagher brothers,
Damon and co from Blur so the Gallaghers have somebody to fight
with, Queen's Freddie Mercury, Elvis, The Rolling Stones (if they
can make wrinkly LEGO), Alice Cooper, all of New Order and Pixies
(just because!) and... and... and...
WAVE OF CLARIFICATION!
If you're having trouble getting your head around all of these
LEGO Dimensions waves and what types of packs are in them, LEGO
have released a handy info sheet. Just click the little one below to
get a nice big one...
Yep, we know we've been slacker than the slackest of slacky things
getting the Year Two LEGO Dimensions stuff up on the site.
A barrage of paid work has had to take precedence over fun, but
normal transmission should resume shortly. Please do not adjust your
sets and all that stuff.
JUST WHEN YOU
THOUGHT IT WAS SAFE TO GO BACK TO YOUR CONTROLLER...
Woohoo! Another 10GB (PS4) update - the second in a week! We're so
lucky... But seriously folks, we're not all made of bandwidth, so
hopefully the separate downloads for various packs now will mean
less 10GB mega-updates in future.

IS THE GREATEST DAY I'VE EVER KNOWN!
Whoa, like calm down Billy Corgan dude,
it's not THAT great! It is pretty big though, as Year Two of
LEGO Dimensions is out today. Yep, you can go into a shop and
get it. Well, assuming that you go into the right shop! Target and
Big W seem to be good options, for as far as we can tell they're the only
ones offering decent discounts. Happy shopping!

KEEPS ON TICKING... TICKING... TICKING...
LEGO Dimensions updates needed to
use Year Two packs have gone live, and they're big. Really big.
Speaking for the PS4 side of things, that's over 10GB. Now if you
have speedy internet then yay you. We left it chugging away overnight and, like
Bon Jovi, whoa-oah we're halfway there.
So, if you're
heading out to pick up all the lovely new LEGO Dimensions stuff
today, you may want to set your system updating beforehand...
...Only to come home to discover more updates for individual packs!
It looks like they're changing the way the game handles extra world
data, but we'll clarify this as soon as we can.
WHACKED OUT POO BRAIN INTERNET!!!

EXPECT A FULL SIMONIZE ONCE THIS IS OVER...
News has come through this morning that
the Knight Rider Fun Pack will be released in Australia on
February 8. YAY! But it will only be available from EB Games. BOO!
It seems that lessons about exclusives aren't being learned. All
they do is annoy people.
If you thought that news was
craptacular, then you'd better sit down. The chunky part of Wave 7.5
that everybody's hanging for, The LEGO Batman Movie Story
pack (including a Batcomputer to build on the Toy Pad!) and the
Excalibur Batman Fun Pack have now had their releases moved to
sometime in March, to coincide with the movie's release.
least in the meantime we'll have all the funky stuff due tomorrow
and the main Wave 7 stuff - the Fantastic Beasts and Where to
Find Them Story Pack, Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack,
Gremlins Team Pack and Fun Packs featuring ET, Fantastic
Beasts' Tina Goldstein and Adventure Time's Marceline
the Vampire Queen, which will be available on November 18.

We're not going to reinvent the wheel (or just steal
info and use it uncredited like some people do), as somebody's
already made the perfect one. So, if you're after all the latest
advertised Australian prices then pop over to the lovely Josh's
(@MonAmiibo) site Mon Amiibo by
clicking right about here.
As a reminder, Wave 6 features
the first ever Story Pack in Ghostbusters (2016), two Level
Packs - Adventure Time (algebraic!) and Mission:
Impossible - two Team Packs (Adventure Time (umm,
mathematical!) and Harry Potter) - plus one Fun Pack, and
we pity the fool that doesn't want to add The A-Team's BA
Baracus to their collection!
...and, of course, G'DAY, as this is an
Australian site dedicated to all things LEGO Dimensions!
Also, apologies if our Googling brought up incorrect greetings to
any nations out there - please be assured that our intention is most
certainly not to start any wars or anything else nasty like that.
After all, LEGO Dimensions is about fun and play and all
sorts of wonderful things.
Anyway, hopefully you'll like
DIMENSIONED.NET. There's a fair bit of stuff here already - bios on
all available characters and direct links to building instructions
for all vehicle/accessory packs for starters - plus, of course, news
will be updated as regularly as possible.
Rest assured that
the plan is to add a whole lot more - from build-it-yourself LEGO
display cases to an easy reference ability chart (as soon as I can
work out how to actually create such a thing - that stuff's
complicated!) Also, the missing Level Pack reviews will materialise
over the next week or so, purging many of those boring
question marks to wherever unwanted question marks go.
and, of course, even more of them will disappear as Wave 6 of
LEGO Dimensions hits us here in Australia on September 28.
We're sure that, like us, you can't wait!
THERE AIN'T A BETTER BAT AND THAT'S THAT!
Ooh! News - and more importantly pictures
- of some of the "Wave 7.5" Aussie LEGO Dimensions
releases we've not previously seen!
As those with
keenly-tuned Bat-sense will have already noticed, the Story Pack for
The LEGO Batman Movie is pictured just above this block of
incredibly less interesting text. Holy bat seeing double, erm,
Batman, there are two minifigs! OK, so that may result in a smaller
build to plop onto our LEGO Dimensions base, but we say
give us Batgirl AND Robin any day!
Umm, but what about
Batman? OK, we have the Starter Pack one, but we want more! Dont
fret Bat-fans, for if you have a quick peek below you'll keenly spot
a Fun Pack featuring Excalibur Batman.
Look even further
below and you'll spot some dude with a black car. That's actually
Michael Knight, aka the Knight Rider, aka THE HOFF! Yes, Germany's
favourite popstar has finally been spotted in LEGO DImensioned form.
We wonder if his car KITT will talk?
Beetlejuice and the Powerpuff Girls to see now... Unless, of course,
LEGO have any cool surprises in store for us (that hopefully don't
involve the words "limited" and "edition")...
ET 4 SG!
It's time for another Meet That Hero!
interlude, starring none other than Supergirl, ET and a couple of
PACKING MORE PUNCH!
Cool! More pictures to do some talking here - with much nicer
backgrounds than that last lot. September 28 can't come quickly
enough (although, of course, some of these ones aren't due until
If our calculations are correct, the
only forthcoming LEGO Dimensions characters/sets that we
haven't yet seen any hint of are Harry Potter's pal Hermione,
Michael Knight from Knight Rider, Batman from The LEGO
Batman Movie, Beetlejuice from, duh, Beetlejuice and
the one that we're looking forward to the most here, The
Blossom, commander and the
leader... Bubbles, she is the joy and the laughter... Buttercup,
she's the toughest fighter... Powerpuffs save the day!
PACKING A PUNCH!
We'll let the pictures do the talking here - these are some of the
new LEGO Dimensions sets that are on their way to us really
We were curious as to what that rather
gargantuan new update was for, and now we know that at the very
least it included trophy info for those September 28 packs that will
actually yield trophies.
Not particularly surprisingly, the
two Level Packs - Adventure Time and Mission:Impossible
- have basically the same trophies as previous Level Packs. Complete
the story, collect a Minikit and smash it up enough to collect
With these snazzy new Story Packs, however,
we'd hoped for a bit more. As the screengrab underneath will show
you though, the first of these, the 2016 Ghostbusters Story
Pack, is just a glorified Level Pack when it comes to trophies,
yielding a measly three bronze ones despite being essentially a full
game. Bummer. :(
OK, it isn't LEGO Dimensions
news, but it is new LEGO game news, and that's always good news!
Actually, it isn't a new game as such, but it's two old ones
remastered and lovingly stuck onto the one PS4 disc (another PS4
exclusive, hmm...) As you have likely guessed from the image above,
we're talking about LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5 to 7.
We've just gone and
cast the yayarecium spell in our excitement!
SUPER, THANKS FOR ASKING?
If you've been all excited about the news
that Supergirl is coming to LEGO Dimensions, this news may
just have an effect upon you much like kryptonite has on our super friends.
Supergirl will be available as a limited edition polybag which will be available for a
limited time come late September, around the same time that the year
two range of LEGO Dimensions sets starts hitting (roll on
good and well, however it will only be available in its limited
capacity when you buy the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, and
then only for the PS4.
So, this is rather crap news for those who have already purchased
LEGO Dimensions, which would be pretty much everybody
reading this. :(
Unfortunately LEGO have a fairly
long-standing habit of shooting fans in the foot with limited things
and even more limited availability of them.
Some of the packs
are out in the wild already and people are paying utterly stupid
prices on eBay. Surely logic would dictate that worst case scenario
you can buy the Starter Pack again in late September, grab Supergirl
for yourself then resell the spare pack?
WHAT THE LUMP?!
Everybody's fave spacey drama queen LSP
stars in a new vid with a cool new pal who ain't no fool...
MORE TEASE, VICAR?
If the teases from a couple of days ago
weren't enough to get you excited for what's coming (see below),
LEGO have just let loose a heap more on their DimensionsTwitter feed!
Again, for those who may not know all of the characters - after
all, many date back to the 1980s - then here's a quick catch-up
- GREMLINS is a classic '80s flick which will yield
two LEGO Dimensions characters (the graphic designers got
lazy it seems and plopped them both in the one image. The one at
bottom left is Gizmo - the good 'guy' - while the one at the top
right is Stripe, who's the not-so-nice one. They're a strange team,
but they'll appear in a LEGO Dimensions Team Pack this
November. We'd advise you not to get it wet...
(McCain) hails from the (annoyingly) Wii U only videogame LEGO
City Undercover. We've no further info on what he'll be up to
LEGO Dimensions-wise at this time.
ET is from another classic 1980s movie by Se˝or Spielbergo. He's a
scrunchy little brown alien who has a thing for telephones. November
will be a good tiem to track his LEGO Dimensions Fun Pack
down, for that's when it will be available.
- ETHAN HUNT is
the lead spy dude from the Mission: Impossible movies,
meaning you can come out of the closet now, Tom Cruise, for you have
your very own minifig you! It will be available inside a LEGO
Dimensions Level Pack this September.
- HARRY POTTER and
LORD VOLDEMORT (we probably shouldn't mention his name, but LEGO did
so what are we gonna do?) most likely need no introduction. Yes,
they're the characters from JK Rowling's super-successful series of
books that became movies about a wizard school and the contents
thereof - wizards! Curiously, the two will be packed together inside
a LEGO Dimensions Team Pack that's due this September. Hopefully
they don't go and evenesco each other. leaving us with empty boxes.
- NEWT SCAMANDER: Speaking of Ms Rowling, Newt is the lead
character from her book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,
which is due to hit cinemas in movie form (as books are hard to read
in the dark) this November. It's a kind of prequel to the tales of
Harry Potter. The LEGO Dimensions Story Pack is also due in
- FInally, SLOTH. If you don't know who he is then
the tease pic may give you the impression that he's some long lost
DC Comics character. However, those in the know will, erm, know that
he's from yet another classic 1980s movie, The Goonies.
We're guessing that he'll be in a Fun Pack, but our guesses aren't
IT'S NICE TO SAY 'TEASE'...
A whole bunch of preview images of
forthcoming characters have landed via the
LEGO Dimensions Twitter feed - and here they are! They
should need no introduction, but just in case you've got a spot of
head scratching going on...
- SONIC is from SEGA's classic
Mega Drive (aka Genesis) series of incredibly ace (well, in the
early days) Sonic the Hedgehog
games. He will be speeding into our lives this November in a
LEGO Dimensions Level Pack.
- FINN THE HUMAN, JAKE THE DOG and LUMPY SPACE
PRINCESS all hail from the universe of the Cartoon Network's totally
mathematical series Adventure Time (like duh!). Ina
curious move, the LEGO Dimensions Team Pack that's due in
September partners Jake with Lumpy, while Finn goes it alone in a
ABBY YATES is a 21st century style Ghostbuster, from the latest
Ghostbusters movie. She will also star in the very first
LEGO Dimensions Story Pack, which will be available in
- We pity the fool who doesn't know
BA BARACUS, who's a member of The A-Team, a very popular
1980s action TV show that reappeared as a movie in 2010, but without
Mr T. Meh. Anyway, he'll be doing the LEGO Dimensions Fun
Pack thang come September.
- BEAST BOY and RAVEN are two heroes
from the 2003 animated series Teen TItans, which are based
on the DC Comics characters of the same name. Will they be a Team
Pack? Maybe - we're waiting for confirmation.
