One of the bigger additions to Lego Dimensions has to be the set based on the upcoming Harry Potter spin-off, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” The spin-off comes with a Level pack featuring 6 levels based on the upcoming movie, and be able to build the Newt Scamander LEGO minifigure and help him find his escaped magical creatures in New York City and use a variety of spells, including Diffindo, Reparo and Lumos. The story pack will also include a 3-in-1 Niffler which can be rebuilt into the Sinister Scorpion and Vicious Vulture. That isn’t all that we can expect from “Fantastic Beasts” as the set will also include a fun pack featuring the Tina Goldstein LEGO minifigure. She can cast Aguamenti to help solve puzzles andProtego to keep her safe from enemies, as well as the 3-in-1 Swooping Evil which can be rebuilt into the Brutal Bloom and Crawling Creeper.

The Blue Blur saw a lot of action at Comic Con this weekend, but his addition to Lego Dimensions did not go unnoticed. Sonic the Hedgehog pack includes a full Sonic level which features iconic locations including Green Hill, Emerald Coast, Labyrinth and many more. Players will be able to race as Sonic with his own Lego Minifigure,  the 3-in-1 Sonic Speedster which can be rebuilt into Blue Typhoon and Motobug, and a 3-in-1 The Tornado which can be rebuilt into Crabmeat and Eggcatcher.

In time for the Holidays, we will also see the Gremlins Team pack, which will feature rivals Gizmo and Stripe Lego Minifigures as well as  the 3-in-1 R.C. Racer vehicle into the Gadget-o-matic and Scarlet Scorpion and the 3-in-1 Flash ‘n’ Finish into a Rampage Record Player and Stripe’s Throne.
