From all those hyper expensive Skylander-a-likes this one is by far the most interesting and meaningful. But that doesnt mean im gonna buy it.

Endless* possibilities! (*three)

Just kidding, looks really cool! Can't help but think how amazing it would be if all combinations were scanned in. Pipe dream most likely!

All I can think about when I hear that Gandalf's voice actor in anything is:

How does it know which of the 3 designs you've built?? Because if you're limited to 3 designs and you have to tell the game manually which you built, that's dumb. You wouldn't even need to use the lego bricks at that point.

I could leave a smarmy comment here but I realize the 15 amiibos next to my Wii U leave me without a leg to stand on.

Have at it, Lego, when it comes to turning brand licensing into a decent game, the Lego games have been pretty great so far.

That could be Really cool. Depends on how the blocks get put into the game.

Like could I build a giant dick & balls with wheels on it and drive it in the game? Or will I be limited to some pre-set car/boat/plane designs like the trailer implied?

I'm cautiously-optimistic about this!

@mikemcn: I was thinking the same thing - unless every brick had a sensor and logic to tell what bricks were connected to which brick and then that went through via NFC, which would make it super expensive even for Lego bricks, I don't see how it actually works.

This crap has gotten out of hand to the point where I can't tell if that's a joke deck or not. Bring on a Smash TV/Ghostbusters Lego game, I guess?

@corvak: More like without a Lego to stand on, eh? Ehhhhhh?

There will be a day when whatever I build will appear in the game and be playable.

This is not that da—

Ooooohh, Batman in a DeLorean!

@mikemcn: I think the design is in the base. There's a different base for each design.

When can I get an Ed Boon mini-fig?

So I could have Lego Doctor Who and Lego Batman together? So my gaming experience will turn into a 9GAG meme.

The Simpsons? Okay, you got me.

No news story on LEGO Worlds?

It's like Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts, but you can only build the 3 vehicles from Diddy Kong Racing

@lanerobertlane: I'm sure that either the base or a few specific components have NFC and the rest of the bricks don't really matter. A truly free-form setup would be cool, but probably too costly and difficult to build a game around.

Man I'm so torn about all of this...I preordered the BTTF pack when Dimensions was first shown off...now they've announced a second pack with the Doc and other franchises I like such as Dr Who. $109.99 for that starter pack though man that's expensive. The only thing is I know the missus will play this with me, the price point for the "add ons" means buying something new every few months is a viable option for as and when she wants to play.

It's like taking everything I love as a kid, putting it in a blender, and playing "Everything is Awesome" on loop in the background 24/7.

Wait Midway Arcade? Does that mean we can have LEGO Scorpion and Sub-Zero running around in Evergreen Terrace?

Posted by ripelivejam

tell me yr dimensions bb

Posted by ripelivejam

The Simpsons? Okay, you got me.

is what i would have said 19 years ago.

Edited by Honkalot

Unless it's the base then you'd only need 2 to 6 bricks with connections that change the state.

Could be two bricks with different states for being in front, behind or on top for example.

LEGO games are the cash cow I can't get mad at.

I'd be all over this if I didn't have to buy figures. Unless Lego SmashTV becomes a thing.
