    New Story Pack Lets Gamers Play LEGO Batman’s Big Screen Adventure

    ____________________________________________________________________________________

    Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today revealed details around three highly collectable expansion packs for LEGO® Dimensions™, the LEGO toy and videogame hybrid, that will be available on February 10, 2017. The LEGO® Batman Movie Story Pack, Excalibur Batman Fun Pack and Knight Rider Fun Pack will broaden the selection of the world’s most popular entertainment brands allowing players to customize their experience by mixing and matching favorite characters and universes with full compatibility.

    Coinciding with the release of the upcoming film on which it’s based, The LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack, will provide a deep, story-driven gameplay experience with iconic DC characters in six puzzle-packed levels and new LEGO Gateway bricks that allow players to build the Bat-Computer atop the LEGO Toy Pad. The pack comes with buildable Batgirl and Robin minifigures and the 3-in-1 buildable Batwing which can be rebuilt into The Black Thunder and Bat-Tank. Gamers can play the complete movie and band together with Batgirl and Robin to fight off the Joker and his team of villains. Batgirl’s batarang, glide and stealth abilities can reach areas with high security access and Robin’s agility and dive skills provide sneak access. Players can also transform Robin into the Nightwing, utilize his vine cut, and deflect moves for more crime-fighting adventures. Batgirl and Robin provide access to the new The LEGO Batman Movie Adventure World with its own unique Battle Arena with competitive split-screen local gameplay for up to four players.

    Batman fans can broaden their LEGO Dimensions gameplay with Excalibur Batman from The LEGO Batman Movie. The Fun Pack comes with a buildable Batman minifigure and a 3-in-1 buildable Bionic Steed which can be rebuilt into the Bat-Raptor and Ultrabat for additional in-game abilities. Players can use Batman’s Master Builder and Sword Switching abilities to solve puzzles and take down enemies. Batman also provides access to The LEGO Batman Movie Adventure World and Battle Arena. The Excalibur Batman Fun Pack will release in North America first at Target.

    Michael Knight and K.I.T.T. from the classic 80s TV series, Knight Rider, are also coming to LEGO Dimensions. Players can add the iconic duo with the Knight Rider Fun Pack featuring a buildable Michael Knight minifigure, and a rebuildable 3-in-1 K.I.T.T., that can be rebuilt into the K.I.T.T. Jet and Goliath Armored Semi for upgraded in-game powers.

    In the game, players can activate Michael Knight’s dodging and dash abilities to solve puzzles and overpower enemies or use his Wrist Watch to uncover secrets behind x-ray walls and outsmart enemies by hacking into terminals and following trails. Players can also fight crime on four wheels with K.I.T.T., the highly advanced, artificially intelligent robotic vehicle, to boost their gameplay. Michael Knight provides access to a new Knight Rider Adventure World with its own unique Battle Arena. The Knight Rider Fun Pack will release in North America first at GameStop.

    Players can continue to broaden and customize their experience with new expansion packs releasing this year. The Ghostbusters Story Pack, Adventure Time and Mission: Impossible Level Packs, Harry Potter and Adventure Time Team Packs, and The A-Team Fun Pack will be available on September 27 and the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Story Pack, Sonic The Hedgehog Level Pack, Gremlins Team Pack, and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Adventure Time Fun Packs will be available on November 18.

    Mini LEGO Target Shopping Basket (custom?)

    atmail35 has shared an image of a 71013 LEGO Minifigure Series 16 Banana Suit Minifigure. This I believe came from the Target Twitter page and shows the minifigure holding a Target shopping basket. Pretty cool looking isn’t it!

    Bricks – Issue #16 Now Released

    Bricks – issue 16 is now available for purchase. There’s 124 pages in this magazine. Available in digital or print form. Good to read when you have spare time. Read below for the press release.

    bricks-issue-16-lego-magazine-september-2016

    Bricks issue 16 scales the castle walls, wonders at the world of steam punk and how to accessorise the VW beetle and camper.

    Be they fantastical or historical, castles have long been of interest in the LEGO world. That is probably why they continue play a prominent role in the ever growing portfolio of LEGO products. We have seen everything from pink sparkling homes for princesses to haunted vampire retreats, classic fortresses and even futuristic castles mounted on caterpillar tracks. We have been spoilt for choice, with every taste catered for.

    71040 The Disney Castle is the latest offering, and arguably the most iconic of all castles. Bricks delves inside these magical walls to discover all the secrets and nods to the Disney franchise. Every room and brick is explored to discover how this mammoth set captures all that is wonderful in the world of Disney.

    Lucy Boughton catches up with our favourite dragon, Miku, for the concluding part of the Elves dragon search which includes a dangerous encounter at Ragna’s Shadow castle, will she make it back safely! There’s a visit to the Mad Hatter’s house a detailed exposé of Michael Kalkwarfs modular castle system before James Pegrum illustrates how to build circular towers.

    This month we also look at the highly fantastical genre of Steampunk. We speak with expert builder Rod Gillies as he talks us through this Victorian-inspired alternate universe. We meet some amazing steampunk-style Ultra Agents before looking at the LEGO offerings that have been inspired by this style.

    In addition to all this we get up close with the new Volkswagen Beetle set and explore some aftermarket kits specifically designed for it.

    As always, there’s also set reviews, loads of amazing MOCs from around the world and much more to discover. Enjoy the issue and keep building.

    With 124 pages packed full of inspirational models and exclusive features Bricks is the premier LEGO fan magazine. With a price of just £4.99, why accept anything less?

    LEGO Ideas is making several changes which includes changes to Search, Discover, Tags and Supporter Milestones and Targets. You can find out more at the official LEGO Ideas blog.

    lego-ideas-september-2016-changes-update

    From LEGO Ideas:

    The most successful Ideas projects—those that reach 5,000 and 10,000 supporters—share one thing in common: every one of these projects posted since LEGO Ideas launched in April 2014 reached 100 supporters in their first 30 days. No project that has gone on to reach 5k or 10k supporters has taken longer. It could very well be that the “wisdom of crowds” is the best quality filter of all. We’ve decided to let you tell us which projects are high quality by doing what you do best: supporting your favorite projects.

    Starting today, projects will have 60 days to reach their first 100 supporters before receiving time extensions.

    • New projects will now have 60 days to reach 100 supporters. Once they reach that milestone, they’ll receive a one-year boost. The six-month boosts at 1,000 and 5,000 remain the same.
    • Existing projects with less than 100 supporters have had their Days Left clock adjusted to 60. We’ve left an Official Comment on the affected projects letting them know.
