You may already have more than enough Legos in your home, but if Warner Bros. has anything to say on the matter, you really don’t have enough. Following in the footsteps of its toy-to-game peers, Lego’s latest foray into the game scene’s going to let you play with your Legos in one new place: your television screen.
Dubbed Lego Dimensions, the game will launch with three starter packs featuring a variety of the hottest Lego properties both new and old, including Batman, Ninjago, Lord of the Rings, The Lego Movie, Back to the Future, and The Wizard of Oz. In the tradition of Skylanders, Lego Dimensions is also going to come armed with a constructible Lego “Toypad” and “Gateway,” the latter of which will look awfully familiar to any Stargate fan out there.
A $99.99 starter pack will be available that includes Lego Batman, Lego Gandalf, and The Lego Movie‘s Wyldstyle, and the Lego Batmobile.
According to retailer listings, it appears that level packs (like the Back to the Future set) come with a minifig and two vehicles (as seen above). Retailer listings indicate pricing at $29.99. Fun packs come with one minifig and an accessory/vehicle for $14.99. The Ninjago Team Pack includes two figures and two accessories and carries a suggested price of $24.99.
