Lego Dimensions Might Have A Little Too Much Fan Service

Lego Dimensions Might Have Little Too Much Fan Service

Yes, that is all of the previous regenerations of the Doctor up there, in Lego video game form. They're coming to a game that already has characters and elements from Batman, Lord of the Rings, Portal, and Back to the Future among others. This game might be too much for even Fahey.

Just in time for Comic-Con, the new trailer for Lego Dimensions shows off a bit of how everyone's favourite Time Lord -- voiced by current Doctor Peter Capaldi -- will be appearing in the game. There'll be a Doctor Who Level Pack , too. From the press release:

Fans who want more Doctor Who in LEGO Dimensions will be able to purchase the Doctor Who Level Pack which includes an additional mission-based Doctor Who level, along with a LEGO minifigure of the 12th Doctor and LEGO models of the TARDIS and K-9, all playable in the game. When the 12th Doctor is defeated in the level, he returns as the 1st Doctor and then regenerates back up to the 12th Doctor again. The interior of the TARDIS will reflect the corresponding Doctor the player embodies or can be manually selected. There's even a jukebox inside where players can choose among different versions of the Doctor Who theme music. The TARDIS and K-9 models can each be physically built and then rebuilt twice to do entirely different things in the digital game for massive variety.

If this game winds up having Marvel characters in it, the spacetime continuum may not survive.

    Apart from the odd Amiibo I've avoided these collectathon type games, but I don't know if I'll be able to resist this! I would prefer a fully fledged Lego Doctor Who game.

      Agreed. This trailer got me super pumped for a non-existant full-fledged Lego Doctor Who game in the vein of Lego Batman 3.
      Being a PC gamer I don't even have a console to play Dimensions on, but I still want it so bad.

        I looked at the prices and changed my mind instantly.

        I love Doctor Who, but to buy the game and the add on costs $220.

    I'm super pumped for the Doctor, but at $50 per level pack I'm a little concerned about content. Will I get one hour out of a level pack? Two? Five? The answer to that question will impact my decision to purchase the game.

    The game looks great but it's so expensive - $160 just for the starter pack, $25 for fun pack (new characters I think) and $50 for the levels..

    For comparison, Disney Infinity 3.0 starter pack $90-$100, characters: $18 and play-sets (levels) are $25.
    I really want to play Lego Dimensions but think I might have to wait and see if it's remotely worth those prices.

    *incoming ominous latin chanting* GOOD......BYE..........MON......EY

    $170 for the game & $50 for Dr Who set is just too much. With also $50 for the Simpsons, $50 for Back to the Future and $20 or $30 for character packs, it's just insane. I'm happy with my Amiibo thanks.

    This isn't even a proper game. It's a virtual toy box that costs more than a running car which children can fawn over to their parents, draining many a wallet.

    Such a waste it's unbelievable.
