Lego Dimensions is a new WB Games (Warner Brothers) project in a toys-to-life genre, which become enormously popular mostly by Skylanders series and Disney Infinity. The game is developed by a UK company TT Games. In Lego Dimensions players will build their own custom vehicles alongside interacting with characters from various franchises.
Lego Dimensions is coming to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Wii U on Sept. 27.
There are a number of favorite franchises or series to choose from, including STAR WARS, Jurassic World, Portal and many others! Play sets add their characters and vehicles into the videogame, affecting the actual gameplay by unlocking special abilities. For example, you have to purchase Indiana Jones Fun Pack in order to get that shiny secret medal hanging on the other side of the abyss.
Upon release different kinds of packs and set will be available. Each set, containing two theme specific objects and one or two characters, will cost $29.99. Fun packs with one character figurine inside will be at $14.99 price.

Starter Pack will come with three characters and one vehicle inside. Retail price for Starter Pack including Lego Toy Pad (aka Skylander’s portal), copy of a videogame, three characters (Gandalf, Batman and Wyldstyle) and a Batmobile vehicle is $99.99. That’s surely not cheap, but starter pack has everything you need to dive into a magic world of Lego Dimensions. It looks like WB offers great movie scenes recreating experience to their audience.
