Ouch...

Here's How Much All Of LEGO Dimensions Will Cost
http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/04...ons-will-cost?abthid=55358745dbfc80362700003c

You've probably heard of LEGO Dimensions, LEGO's take on the games with toys craze. It hits stores on September 27, and features blocky renditions of characters from The Lord of the Rings (Gimli, Legolas), DC Comics (Wonder Woman, Cyborg), Back To The Future (Marty McFly), and LEGO's own LEGO Movie (Bad Cop, Unikitty), among others.


Between the Starter Pack and numerous Fun Packs (a character with a vehicle or gadget), Level Packs (character with a vehicle, a gadget, and an in-game level), and Team Packs (two characters and two vehicles), LEGO Dimensions will have 17 unique packages available at launch. Just how much will all of that run you, if you're the type that has to have it all? The grand total comes to $334.85. And that's without tax.


"Do you rock? You will."


Obviously there's no need to go all in like that. Everything you need to play the game comes in comes in the $100 LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, which has a pretty great starting lineup in the form of Batman, Gandalf, and Wyldstyle.


For comparison, Activision's Skylanders hit store shelves in October of 2011 with around $230 worth of gear, between the starter set, triple character packs, and characters that were only sold individually. Nintendo's first wave of Amiibo debuted with twelve figures at $13 each for a total of $156. Of course, hundreds of dollars worth of amiibo and Skylanders figures have been released since launch.

Portal, Jurassic Park, The Simpsons Coming to LEGO Dimensions

LEGO Dimensions, the upcoming Skylanders-style toys-to-life game from Warner Bros., already has an impressive lineup of franchises, including Lord of the Rings, Batman, Back to the Future, and Wizard of Oz. But now, new playsets have been revealed based on other popular series, including Portal, Jurassic Park, The Simpsons, and Scooby Doo.
That's according to Walmart listings that have now been removed, but not before LEGO fansite Brick Enquirer saw them. According to the site, LEGO Dimensions will offer Team Packs based on Jurassic World and Scooby Doo, while Level Packs for The Simpsons and Portal will be available.

For Xmas I will need to decide on Disney Infinity 3.0 which will include Star Wars or Lego Dimensions for my four year-old :)

I'm sure that your child would be very happy with either one. Kids have it pretty good these days.


If he/she is already interested in anything Disney, Marvel, or Starwars related...I think that is probably the best starting point. Plus, you can find the starter packs easily for $40-$45 instead of $70 around the holidays. Good luck.


Disney Infinity 3.0, with space battles! :cool:
