With the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them in cinemas this weekend, the wizarding world as conjured by J.K. Rowling is very much alive again – and thanks to LEGO, fans can now relive the magical experience with LEGO Dimension’s Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Story Pack (71253). Check out’s Jason review of this set right here.
The long wait is finally over. Fans of the Blue Blur and the eighties Gremlins can finally have them in their minifigure forms (I guess for devout minifig collectors, playing the actual game is only secondary) now that LEGO Dimensions Wave 7 is finally out. Check out these official images courtesy of Brickset. You may also want to check out the links below both from Amazon and shop.LEGO.com. Not included here is the Marceline the Vampire Queen (71285) set which comes as a Toys R Us exclusive. Be sure to check out this nifty LEGO Dimensions Guide to see other previous sets that you may have missed. Jason also gives you a firsthand look at some of these sets with his unboxing video so be sure to check these out.
The LEGO Dimensions is all set to welcome another wizard into the portal, and who is best to qualify to do so other than Gandalf. We’re not sure if he accidentally cast an identity switching spell of some sorts upon himself, but it seems that the folks over at Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them are having a hard time being convinced that he is not Dumbledore. Watch LEGO Dimensions latest ‘Meet That Hero’ video featuring none other than the hero of the wizarding world on this side of North America, Newt Scamander. He is the latest hero placed under the LEGO Dimensions spotlight following the likes of Gizmo, B.A. Baracus, and E.T. In this video, Gandalf narrates how Newt ends up causing quite a commotion in New York City, where his fantastic beasts ran loose and were causing a lot of trouble among the locals. With help from his friends and a dash of LEGO humor, retrieving these fantastic beasts can prove to be a great and fun adventure.
A few days ago, Warner Bros. Interactive has rolled out the third and final level pack instalment for the LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens video game as announced via their Facebook page. Named as ‘Escape from Starkiller Base’, the DLC pack features the characters of Resistance pilots C’ai Threnalli, Lieutenant Wright and the cool looking astromech droid, R3-Z3. The gang is on a mission to help stop the annihilation of the planet D’Qar – the Resistance’s seat of operations – from the impending attack on Starkiller Base.
LEGO Dimensions and Warner Bros. Interactive has revealed its next Meet That Hero episode over at YouTube. The video features Adventure Time’s Vampire Queen herself, Marceline, as seen in her LEGO Dimensions minifigure together with Gizmo from the 80’s blockbuster film Gremlins. This recent Meet That Hero clip is the third instalment in a series that follows the newest characters of LEGO Dimensions under its Waves 6 and 7 banners. The video series is a fun and creative way of explaining the unique in-game abilities of each character in LEGO Dimensions. Well, in Gizmo’s case, the three absolute rules that every Mogwai owner needs to remember.
