“BIGGER CHARACTERS! BIGGER STORIES! BIGGER BATTLES! BIGGER POSSIBILITIES!”
That pretty much sums up exactly what you can expect from the new LEGO Dimensions expansion packs! Traveller’s Tales looks to continue their successful LEGO franchise with these new expansion packs. An E3 trailer just dropped so be sure to check that out below!
The game is packed with added movie and television show franchises such as Ghostbusters, Harry Potter, The A-Team, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Gremlins, Scooby-Doo, The Wizard of Oz, Doctor Who and much MUCH more!
This trailer is full of all sorts of fun. With The LEGO Movie characters such as Batman, Vitruvius, and Wyldstyle front and center, Dimensions looks to continue the brand with a fresh take on these icons. These characters won’t be taking a step back anytime soon, and look to be heavily utilized in the new expansion packs.
The trailer showed plenty of amazing moments that gave each character their chance to shine. However, there were seven particular moments that stood out the most to me. Here is my list of the “7 Best Moments From the Brand New E3 LEGO Dimensions Trailer.”
#1. Wyldstyle Takes Out Lord Voldemort
Wyldstyle is seen here traversing the streets on her sweet Lego Bike and isn’t afraid to run over “He who must not be named”. It’s a pretty humorous moment, especially since we know how powerful Voldemort can be. Voldemort loses this battle quite easily. It’s a shame because it didn’t seem like a fair fight. I mean, where the hell was Wyldstyle’s wand?
#2. ET Riding On The Back Of Wyldstyle’s Sweet Ride
Just a few seconds after Wyldstyle knocks her motorcycle into the Dark Lord, we see ET happily riding on the back of her bike. In perfect ET fashion, he doesn’t hesitate to use his power to bring her bike up in the air. The pair then fly in front of the moon, in an obvious homage to the iconic scene from E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. No it’s not a pedal bike, but a motorcycle isn’t a bad alternative.
#3. Sloth As Superman
What a stunning reveal here. It’s freaking Sloth from The Goonies! It’s a quick blink- and-you’ll-miss-it moment but it’s a scene that will lighten anyone’s day, especially if you’re a fan of The Goonies.
#4. Mr. T Swerves Into Action
“I pity the fool!” Mr. T from the A-Team gets a chance to shine here, as he’s seen driving the team’s signature van. But look out, because he doesn’t look like a character you want to mess with!
#5. A Gremlin Riding On The Wicked Witch Of The West’s Broomstick
The Wicked Witch of the West is one of the most popular and scariest movie villains of all time. The trailer shows the witch riding her broom with a Gremlin (Gizmo?) companion. However, if you’ve all seen The Wizard of Oz, you will know that her greatest weakness is water. And yea, she gets it handed to her by Mr. T himself. It doesn’t look like it will end well for her at all.
#6. Beast Boy As The Fantastic Beast
In one of the best parts of the trailer, we hear Beast Boy shout, “I’m the Fantastic Beast!” Not more than a second later, we see Newt Scamander close his briefcase on Beast Boy. Yep, I guess he truly is the Fantastic Beast that’s been hiding in that briefcase!
#7. Sonic Steals Gollum’s Precious
Traveller’s Tales saves the best for last! We see one of the most popular characters from The Lord of the Rings attempt to retrieve the one ring to rule them all. However, a certain agile blue hedgehog has a different plan in mind. Sonic is keen on collecting gold rings to help gain points or obtain extra lives. The gold coins are a staple in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, so this tie-in fits very well in this trailer. It’s a great moment and will certainly piss off Gollum.
This game looks incredible! I have been a huge fan of these Lego games ever since the Lego Star Wars games were released. The graphics have also improved tremendously and the character choices have grown. The games can only get better from here! Most of these new game packs will be available for purchase in September.
