Supergirl is coming to LEGO Dimensions late next month, but she's not coming easy. Not only is Superman's cousin a PlayStation 4 exclusive, her figure will only be available in Starter Packs, the full edition of the game most fans already own. One of my favourite things about LEGO Dimensions up until this point was a distinct lack of platform-specific content. While Disney Infinity had retailer exclusive variants and Skylanders did the whole Wii/Wii U/3DS Nintendo crossover thing, LEGO Dimensions was all out there, save for the odd convention circuit exclusive (I will have you, Green Arrow).
Starting late in September, Supergirl will come bundled alongside Batman, Wyldstyle and Gandalf in the PlayStation 4 Starter Pack for LEGO Dimensions.
What this means, is that if you already own a Starter Pack (which ran $US99 ($129) at launch but have slipped down to around $US60 ($78) or less lately), you'll have to buy another one for Supergirl.
Supergirl packs all the powers of Superman — flying, super strength, X-ray vision and eye-beams, and is also able to transform into Red Lantern Supergirl, adding rage bolts and constructs to her repertoire.
Most appropriate Red Lantern alternate costume ever.
It is currently unclear whether the Supergirl figure will even be playable on other platforms, should Xbox One or Wii U players opt to pick up a PS4 Starter Pack to obtain one. Warner Bros. did say that in the future the character would be available via the in-game figure rental system, allowing players to try her out temporarily to see what they're missing.
WBIE gave us the following statement when asked about Supergirl's availability outside of the PS4 Starter Pack:
"Next year, Supergirl will be available as a 'Hire-a-Hero', a feature in LEGO Dimensions that allows players to sample characters using studs collected in the game. Players can select the hologram minifigures near certain keystones to unlock characters for a limited time to try out their special abilities to solve problems and complete puzzles."
