‘LEGO: Dimensions’ Is Getting Some Ridiculously Awesome New Characters In Year 2

Warner Bros. just unveiled its plans for year two of LEGO: Dimensions and while there are a few obvious characters and franchises getting put into the game (Harry Potter, The LEGO Batman Movie), the majority of the new additions are outright bizarre … and kind of awesome.

Seriously, this might be the greatest roster in video game history. Starting in September, we’ll start to see the likes of Sonic the Hedgehog, The Goonies, Teen Titans Go!, LEGO City Undercover, Knight Rider, The Powerpuff Girls, Gremlins, BeetlejuiceE.T.The Extra-Terrestrial, Mission Impossible, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The A-Team, and freaking Adventure Time! Sure, they’ll all be in LEGO form and having to purchase all the characters and sets separtely is definitely an expensive bummer, but this is still an impressive lineup of franchises that could prove hard to resist.

Here’s the official announcement trailer:

And the PR breakdown:

LEGO Dimensions packs based on 16 new entertainment properties will begin launching on September 27, 2016 with the Ghostbusters Story Pack, Adventure Time and Mission: Impossible Level Packs,Harry Potter and Adventure Time Team Packs, and The A-Team Fun Pack.  Additional expansion packs based on other highly anticipated films Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and The LEGO®Batman Movie and wildly popular properties The Goonies, Sonic The Hedgehog, Teen Titans Go!, LEGO® City Undercover, Knight Rider, The Powerpuff Girls, Gremlins, Beetlejuice and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial will be released in product waves stretching into summer of next year. All expansion packs provide players with continued compatibility to use everything from waves 1-9 interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game.  And no new starter pack is required, as all new packs will simply enhance the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack game and work with the existing LEGO Toy Pad.

It’s good to know that customers won’t have to shell out $100 for a starter pack again, especially when the individual character and level packs will quickly add up. For our money, we definitley need the Adventure Time pack in our lives. LEGO Finn and Jake are hard to resist:

No Marvel or Star Wars is a bit disappointing, though.
