If you still have some cash left from the San Diego Comic Con, Lego has just given you another excuse to finish it all off with the announcement of the Lego Dimensions Wave 7 Expansion Packs that will be released just in time for the holiday season. Coming from an already aggressive campaign of 80s and 90s revivals, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and the toy company, Lego, add another brick to their collection by introducing six more collectable expansion packs for the Lego toy and videogame hybrid.
And they are all AWESOME!!! Here?s Why.
Awesome Reason #1
The Lego Dimensions Wave 7 release will include J.K. Rowling?s ?Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Story Pack and Sega?s Sonic The Hedgehog Level Pack!
The player can add the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Fun Pack with a Tina Goldstein Lego minifigure to cast Aguamenti and Protego. Players in need of rescue can meanwhile build the 3-in-1 Swooping Evil, which can be rebuilt into the Brutal Bloom and Crawling Creeper.
For Sonic The Hedgehog fans, the Level Pack includes a complete level gameplay allowing players to race in Blue Blur mode at lightning speed through the Green Hill, Emerald Coast and Labyrinth zones to name a few. Build the Sonic Lego minifigure to use Acrobat ability and avoid the Badniks by using the grind rails move to make a quick escape. Rebuild a 3-in-1 Sonic Speedster into Blue Typhoon and Motobug and a 3-in-1 The Tornado into Crabmeat and Eggcatcher.
Awesome Reason #2
These new packs are highly customisable, allowing players to enhance their experience by mixing and matching their favorite characters and universes.
Awesome Reason #3
All Lego minifigures from the Wave 6-9 expansion packs come with a special, golden Toy Tags, which unlock a Battle Arena! All of the new Battle Arenas will now have a competitive split-screen for local gameplay of up to four players.
Awesome Reason #4
Each Battle Arena comes with four gameplay modes with its own traps, special powers, and a unique-to-every -battle -arena interactive environment. Cool huh?
BUT WAIT THERE?S MORE.
Awesome Reason #5
You can now bring Gizmo and his rival, Stripe, to life with the Gremlins Team Pack. Use Combat Roll and Dash Attack to get Gizmo out of sticky situations while you can get Stripe to use his Vine Cut ability. Rebuild the R.C. Racer vehicle into the Gadget-o-matic and Scarlet Scorpion and Flash ?n? Finish into a Rampage Record Player and Stripe?s Throne.
Awesome Reason #6
Another classic creature cutie is back-E.T.! The E.T. Fun Pack comes with an E.T. Lego minifigure with Illumination and Fix-It abilities as well as special Stealth and Telekinesis skills to help him travel around different Lego multiverses. Get additional in-game abilities by rebuilding E.T?s Phone Home device into the Mobile Uplink and Super-Charged Satellite.
Awesome Reason #7
For Adventure Time players, you can now add a Fun Pack with a Marceline the Vampire Queen Lego minifigure. Activate Marceline?s Sonar Smash and Bolt Deflector abilities by using the Marceline Axe Guitar. Build and use her Lunatic Amp to rock on, then restack it into the Shadow Scorpion and Heavy Metal Monster for extra in-game powers. The pack will first be released in Australia.
These new Lego Dimensions Wave 7 Expansion packs are set to release this November 2016. Maybe you can ask Mum and Dad (or the Mrs.) for an early christmas gift?
