LEGO Dimensions pricing revealed

On the surface, I dig the idea for LEGO Dimensions. After all, you’d have to be some kind of monster to find no joy in building with LEGO. You’ve got characters from various franchises, a portal to build and various other vehicles and gadgets to assemble. All that, and a video game, which does sound neat. And expensive. After all, this is Lego that we’re talking about, which usually retails locally for an actual arm and a leg.

Amazon has prices up for the upcoming LEGO playsets that will be available for eager kids to beg their parents for. Here’s a look at some of the kits and characters on the way:

Lego characters

  • Lord of the Rings: Gollum
  • Lord of the Rings: Gimli
  • Lord of the Rings: Legolas
  • Ninjago: Nya
  • Ninjago: Jay
  • Ninjago: Zane
  • Lego Movie: Emmet
  • Lego Movie: Benny
  • Lego Movie: Bad Cop
  • Lego Movie: Unikitty
  • DC: Wonder Woman
  • DC: Cyborg
  • Wizard of Oz: Wicked Witch of the West
  • LEGO Dimensions level pack: Back To The Future

Each character will hit your wallet up for £14.99/$14.99, while bigger level packs which contain a character, two vehicles and a game level will cost $29.99/£28.56 . That’s all in addition to the starter pack, which will retail for $99.99/£99.99 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and $89.99/£89.99 on Wii U, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

That’s pretty much in line with what you’d pay for Disney Infinity, Nintendo Amiibo or Skylanders. So don’t be too surprised to see these character packs retail for around R200 locally, with the level packs costing much, much more. MOICHENDISIN’! As for the gameplay, I’m genuinely hoping that the formula is being shaken up. I’m not confident however, after seeing a snippet of it in this video:

Thing is, while Skylanders, Amiibo and Disney Infinity have the ability to appeal to both kids and adults, I can see LEGO Dimensions focusing purely on the young ones. And they’re more than happy to play the exact same game yet again, but with some actual physical interaction, no matter what I write here. Especially when mom and dad are paying. That, and I’ll probably be buying a LEGO Ghostbusters pack if that gets released. Well played LEGO, well played.

      Is that a pic of you in Kalk Bay? Next to the famous dog? Or are my eyes playing tricks on me?
