This past weekend brought on a lot of news for Year 2 of Lego Dimensions.
Wave 6 – September 27, 2016
Previously we had found out about Wave 6.
This wave which is set to release on September 27th will be the debut of Year 2. Wave 6 will include:
- A Team Fun Pack
- Harry Potter Team Pack
- Adventure Time Team Pack
- Adventure Time Level Pack
- Mission: Impossible Level Pack
- Ghostbusters Story Pack
This seems like it is going to be a standard wave going forward.
Wave 7 – November 18, 2016
Wave 7 will also contain six new packs. The biggest of these packs will always be a Story Pack.
What is a Story Pack?
Story Packs are bigger sets as they contain a new Gateway build (the design that decorates the interactive Toy Pad). The Story Packs also contains six levels of gameplay that cover a (relatively) new feature film.
The first was Ghostbusters which just released last week. The second is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which releases on the same day Wave 7 of Lego Dimensions will be released.
I would imagine we’ll see more of these Story Packs line up with future releases like The Lego Batman Movie.
What’s in Wave 7?
The six sets in Wave 7 will include:
Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them Story Pack – #71253
Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack – #71244
Gremlins Team Pack – #71256
Tina Goldstein Fun Pack – #71257
E.T. Fun Pack – #71258
Marceline the Vampire Queen Fun Pack – #71285
NOTE: Marceline is a Toys R Us Exclusive in the US in 2016.
Outside of Wave 7, we did learn a few more things about upcoming Lego Dimensions releases.
We learned that Hermione Granger (from the Harry Potter franchise) will be coming in a Fun Pack.
We also learn that Sloth and The Inferno (from the Goonies franchise) will be coming in a Level Pack.
It’s definitely going to be an exciting Year 2.
