If anyone still cares, the latest and probably last wave of Dimensions packs is now available.

The five sets -- two team packs and three fun packs -- feature The Powerpuff Girls, Teen Titans and Beetlejuice, three obscure licenses for sure.

You'll find them at shop.LEGO.com: USA | Canada | UK | Germany | France.

So, how long do y'all think it'll be until the now-inevitable cancellation announcement?

Here lies the Lego Dimensions line, having passed away to a knife in the back by mind-changing licencers (probably Disney). May they (he? she?) rest in peace.
2015 - 2017

Do you reckon they'll ever provide the software via PC? Certainly would revisit this and most probably buy more if I could play on PC instead of the family console in the living room.

Wow, clearly not a fan of Dimensions - two digs in such a short piece is quite an achievement.

I will get these to complete the full set but probably not until they are reduced (which won't be long once Lego finally admits what we all suspect).

No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is still so much potential left for the game. I was hoping for themes such as Earthworm Jim, Thunderbirds, Garfield, Animaniacs, Looney Tunes, ect. I could go on. So much untapped potential, why drop it?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They should've pushed out some Nexo Knight packs they could've made the series last longer.

I've only had Dimensions a few months and can see why it only has a short life. Will definitely continue to replay over, only kept Lego games for the wii and wiiu, they never get old.

Such a shame, it's a good game and actually playable without laying out loads of money, if you wish.

Plenty of humour, some interesting level design and if you do invest in extra packs, a nice range of different abilities to get stuck into. The range of eclectic licences is brilliant and makes for a really off-the-wall experience.

I think LEGO entered the games with toys market a couple of years too late. They actually produced the best product of its type, but when interest was on the wane. I can't blame them for cutting back investment in Dimensions based on that and I'm sure Travellers' Tales will continue to churn out their standard licensed games for a good while yet.

^Your right it really was the best of its kind. So much in fact that right after launch Disney Infinity was cancelled because Lego took all they're buyers.

Lego was both less expensive for more, and once its dead we can just take the models and the ultra rare minifigures. But aperently only Spyro can last long.

I admit I bought the PS3 Starter Pack as well as quite an assortment of fun packs and level packs on clearance - yet up to now have neither built nor played with any of them. Will get around to it eventually for sure, but for the time being have never felt a compelling drive to do so - yet. Strange.

I think it's a shame really. it was a good idea and was a great game for Kids, the main killer really was the price point for the expansions. Unless you were mad you waited until they were 40/50% off on Amazon.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

The fact that you can visit some dollar stores and find some Lego Dimension sets for $1 or $2 speaks volume for this game.

Granted I'm one of those who bought sets only for the minifigs and not the game; just glad I was able to get the sets I wanted dirt cheap (min 50% off).

Was this one of the reasons for the 3% drop in the first quarter?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

wow. negative much?
I am currently struggling with my love of Lego and this is encompasses all that is wrong with Lego at the moment and its community.
They are slapping their brand on everything and anything, then charging a fortune for the privilege.
A bitterness then seeps through, this costs too much, what child would want Beetlejuice? its a 80s film rated 15 which probably would be a PG these days. Lego in catering for the older (employed) fans are loosing what makes it so special. Every set is over priced, make us bitter. They are buying licences and making sets for things that are best left alone, A team, Knightrider, Goonies, ET, mission impossible, Ghostbusters.... these aren't what children want its what grown ups want. yes Stay Puff Marshmallow Man is possibly my favourite ever mini figure close to the guy in the gorilla suit. but that's because its one of my favourite films which I watched in the cinema as a kid. I loved Lego more when it didn't make our wish list reality, when its primary target was the children who would play and learn with it and not how much money they can ring out of AFOLs.
I've been finding as I go to my favourite Lego sites that I'm not alone in feeling disenchanted. The recent profit result and job losses show that it is a wider spread issue.
Hopefully the magic and joy will return and Lego will return to making and pricing sets for children and leave us AFOLs to our MOCs, our favourite themes with the occasional purse empting set.

Teen Titans Go Teampack is a must-buy for any fan; lot's of abilities on those characters. Same goes for Powerpuff btw.

Too bad this is probably the end of the line.

By in United Kingdom,

I have all of the purchasable Dimension sets up to the recent releases, and thanks to some glitches in the programming had to start the game for a third time when Wave 8 came out as twice now the save data has been corrupted. Now I back up the save data on a flashdrive after playing for any length of time. I have enjoyed playing the game (again and again). It has the same comedy as other Lego games and a whole load of worlds to visit.

I would love to have more sets come out. I managed to get the exclusive fig at BrickLive in Birmingham last year - which was a farce. I haven't got the Supergirl fig though, as I am not re-buying the Starter Set just for one minifig.

At least when my son is older he will get to play the game too as I will pick up the new sets once they get reduced.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I would've loved to get the Teen Titans packs if they were proper minifig design, but they just look hideous. And the Powerpuff Girls (while keeping that stylised animation look) are even worse.

It was fun while it lasted. I picked up some pretty awesome minifigs, I'll say that at least. But honestly, I won't miss it, as themes go.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

@ickleb yeah totally agree with Lego getting in the habit of slapping their name/brand on everything. Not sure how old you are but it was a little before my time, but I'm reminded of KISS and how they were branded on just about everything and anything. Lego isn't close to being that bad but if they don't change they could be.

By in United States,

Okay, Beetlejuice may be obscure, but PPG and TT are popular right now through their (might I add, horrible) reboots currently on Cartoon Network. They are with the kids, anyway, which is surely all that matters. Right?! ;-)

Anyway, RIP Dimensions. I never played the game (looked like all the rest with little difference, tbh - plus, I don't have a console for it), but the packs are an excellent source of both exclusive minifigures and nice little models.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^Yeah, I was about to say, pretty weird to call Teen Titans Go "obscure". As far as kids are concerned it's pretty mainstream compared to a lot of the 80s stuff we've seen in past Dimensions waves. Not to mention it and Powerpuff Girls are both basically reboots/spin-offs of popular cartoons from the late 90s/early naughts.

Shame LEGO Dimensions never really took off like LEGO hoped. At the same time I'm glad they gave it a chance. A lot of people seem to find it really cringeworthy when LEGO tries to cash in on trends in other toy categories, but if they didn't ever do that kind of thing we wouldn't have gotten popular themes like LEGO trains, LEGO Technic, or LEGO Bionicle.

The game did keep my brother and me invested for the better part of a year after it came out, but our interest started to wane as time went on, particularly with so few LEGO in-house properties being added. A lot of our favorite characters were from brands like The LEGO Movie and LEGO Ninjago, and a lot of the retro brands like Gremlins, Mission Impossible, and Knight Rider meant nothing to us. It was also a bit of a disappointment that the game skewed so heavily towards boy-oriented themes, never acknowledging themes like Friends or Elves.

My family loves the original Teen Titans series - LEGO sets would have been pretty cool. But have no interest in Dimensions... bummer that's all they did with the license.

By in United States,

As others have said Lego jumped into the Toys to Life market about two years too late. My daughter and I have really enjoyed playing the game (except for rediculous load time for new packs and updates). I will eventually pick up most of this wave when the price drops, which judging by the comments won't be long. Beetlejuice is awesome, yet now my daughter wants to see the movie and at only 8 I thinks she's still a bit young for it, so thanks for that headache Lego. TTG is a welcome addition, yet that Starfire figure in particular looks like a lazy design... what did they do to her eyes?! The PPG figures would be a pass for me, those heads are so big they probably have their own gravitational pull! Yet I'll see what the jury (little one) says about them. In summation I'd like to raise my coffee cup in a toast to Dimensions: it was fun while it lasted, and thanks for the minifigures!

Ps. @yuffie, actually there were three hard digs in that short post... OUCH!!

By in United States,

We'll be sad to see LEGO Dimensions go. I have noticed that it simply will not work if you don't have an Internet connection to your game system, so hopefully the game will continue to keep working for years to come. I'd hate for it to simply quit working on us.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Undoubtedly this will be the last release from Lego Dimensions, which is sad. And we shouldn't expect any sort of official confirmation before the holiday season. If Lego says anything about Dimensions ending now, it would absolutely destroy their chance of selling anything that's left before Christmas.

Nevertheless, whatever you think of Dimensions' gameplay and price strategy (or lack there of), it provided the community with dozens of figures and properties we would never have received otherwise. I'll always be grateful for that.

"The Powerpuff Girls, Teen Titans and Beetlejuice, three obscure licenses for sure."

All three of these licenses have new shows either already out, in production, or in the works. Teen Titans is one of the biggest shows on Cartoon Network.

Not obscure by any measure in the US.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I wish it was continuing. Now that LEGO has the Voltron license, it would have been really fun to see Voltron characters in Dimensions.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@cinemajay They're hardly prominent though - I'm sure there are plenty of kids who watch the current PPG and TT shows, but I was completely unaware of them. Ghostbusters, on the other hand, had a recent blockbuster reboot, so I doubt anyone was unaware of it. And the Beetlejuice sequel has been in development since 2012, and I'm sure if it ever does come out it'll be long after Dimensions has shut down.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am in the same boat as a lot of people. I bought a lot of packs at a discount for some fun figures, but have never played the game. The game discs are worthless to me. Unfortunate to be ending, but understandable. I'd love to see more fun characters, but for people like me who only bought it for the figures they had too many rehashes for a lot of those licenses so I ended up not buying as many as I could have. I understand new moulds probably weren't cheap so to have that many new characters is incredible, but not a money maker in the least. I don't know their numbers though.

I will hopefully pick up Beetlejuice, but as much as I love Teen Titans Go and the PPG, I will likely pass on these figures. They just don't look right to me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I hope they don't shut down. I wish they would have made some of these:
Pirates of the Caribbean, Star wars, (And maybe, just maybe, A Godzilla pack!!!!!)

Don't shut down!!!

I never watched Beetlejuice, Teen Titians GO, or Power Puff girls, but this looks fun for anyone who has.

"So long, and thanks for all the figs"!

I actually bought a Wii u a few months ago specifically for Dimensions. I haven't played too much yet but I like it so far, the mashups are great, the humor is cool. My daughter loves it too, got her her own controller so we could play together.

Initially I bought a few packs discounted for the figs, but in the end I'm rapidly trying to catch up with whatever I don't have yet... Shame it's gone, but well, I myself also started 2 years late with it...

The last wave isn't actually that interesting to me - but there's plenty of sets still to pick up!

@shaase I live in Canada too, and i dont know where you live, but wether it's the newer ones or the oldest ones, Official minifigs (sealed), wether it's ninjago, lego movie, wonder woman, scooby-doo,etc are worth Way, way more than a dollar or two . Like i said, dont know where you live but your dollar stores sound like an enormous sham!

@ Huw , Thank you for providing fans all over the world with such an amazing, complete and EASY-to-use database. I'm a big fan of brickset, i must visit it more than 3 times EVERY single day. Also, I like your reviews, the way you break every aspects into different parts of the review makes it great to read or find specific information. Now, some constructive criticism. In almost all of the reviews, if not all of those made by the "official reviewers", it's always written that it reflects your opinions and thoughts and not someone else's. I think its'great since reviewing something means that you give your opinions of soomething, so it'fine. WHAT I dont approve, is when you start being a huge pessimist when you're just making a quick announcement of a new product. Like: if anyone still cares , or the remarks you made about pirates of the carribean. Such a pro reviewer like yourself should know that constructive criticism is fine, but when it's almost just plain put-downs and nagging, Let's just say that it's not what someone that has so many people awaiting to read his words and reviews should do. Personnaly, i'm here to hear your honnest THOUGHTS, not you plainly putting down what you dont like!Thanks to anyone who read through all of this. Again, i'm a huge fan and keep up the good work!

Good! I'll be sure to get the Beetlejuice set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'll certainly get the Beetlejuice set and I will look for the others on closeout. I rather liked Dimensions and it gave us some neat pieces and minifigures for MOCs and to add to my child's Lego selection. Sad to see it go but it came a bit too late and, coupled with some very questionable subject choices, it doomed itself.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Regardless of the game (I never played it) I enjoyed some of the fun models and unique mini figs. Love my Portal and A-Team minifigs. It's funny, but to me the issue with these sets is they didn't come with printed directions!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wadda mean, 'if any one still cares'? LEGO DIMENSIONS is awesome!!! :D Thought, this new wave is an odd one... I hope they come out with much better ones soon! :D (Like Star Wars, Marvel super Heroes, stuff like that. :p Come on LEGO! :p :D )

By in United Kingdom,

There were 2 fundamental problems from the very start.
1. Lego Dimensions was late to the market.
2. All sets had an over ambitious, inflated RRP.
Who wants to pay £50 -£60 for a basic computer game ?
and then pay £25 , £20 or £14 for a bit more of the game?

For £50-60 I want the WHOLE GAME, with bells on! and then free updates every month!!!

To help pay for the Lego. Fun packs should have retailed at £6. Team packs at £10, and Level packs at £15.

As it was 50% of the market was for the Lego only and all of us just waited for the right price anyway.....
So instead of a buzzing market for the game and the Lego we all just snoozed and waited for the discounts.

@Antoine 23, thanks for your constructive criticism. I wrote what I did to be provocative and prompt discussion which it certainly did. You're right, though, I probably should have been a bit less negative about it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I too wish Lego Dimensions had been released for PC, if that were the case I would have purchased it in a heartbeat. The fact they have not announced a version for the Nintendo Switch does not bode well for its future. (Though they did announce LEGO Worlds on said system)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm another who would probably have bought the game if it hadn't also required the purchase of a game console. I'm also not interested in any of these last sets, but I bought plenty of earlier ones for the sake of their minifigs and minibuilds--what with discounts and selling the tagged discs to gamers, the prices weren't too exorbitant, and there certainly were some amusing releases! I suppose my reaction to knowing the theme is likely ending soon is "So long, and thanks for all the fish." It was fun while it lasted, but nothing (electronic in particular) lasts forever.

I might add that I would already have bought Boost if it didn't require a tablet running a non-Microsoft operating system. I'm not buying new (and inevitably short-lived) electronics just to run an electronic-supplemented version of Lego. The original bricks will remain usable long after any particular tablet (or game console) has become obsolete. I wonder if TLG's powers-that-be have really come to terms with this basic truth?

I'm sad it's dead. It could possibly have provided some D.C. CW show packs which could have mode those minifigures more wide release than SDCC.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Been on and off Dimensions since Day 1 - and actually the humour and gameplay made the replayability interesting, plus if you're a collectible hunter like me there are literally ridiculous amounts of gold bricks to be found. Hundreds and hundreds...

...which makes it all the more unforgivable when the game save corrupts!

An important question from me to other Dimensions players out there - is Supergirl the only character that can create 'constructs' like the green lantern? Because I'm going to be seething if I can't get the one or two mini kits sealed off by the ability. I don't think you can 'hire a hero' for Supergirl either which is an oversight...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I never purchased Dimensions, but found it to have the most potential out of all the T.T.L games just off of how many liscenses Lego has at their disposal. I've never understood how, even as it was being phased out, Chima was included. It wasn't even a story level in the main game so why include it? However, the figures were incredible and I will miss all of the exclusive figures based off of properties I love. I had hope that a "Phase 3" would include the classic Green Hornet and Kato from the 60's (Lego Bruce Lee) and possibly Looney Toons. I get what people say about the obscure liscenses, but I think Lego's intent was to make this a family game, where parents can share memories of characters and properties from their childhoods in a G environment for some of them which I think was an awesome idea.

By in United States,

@sklamb How are you supposed to play any game if you don't have a console? That's like saying you won't buy the latest music album because you don't have speakers.

Not sure what your point is regarding LEGO Boost. It's intended to introduce younger builders to programming and robotics. Parents are putting tablets in the hands of their kids all the time now, might as well use an already existing medium to allow them to do something productive. By the time iOS and/or Android have fallen out of favor, the consumers will have long moved on to Mindstorms. Don't know why TLG has to "come to terms with [the] truth;" it's not like they're replacing every single one of their products with computer-enhanced functionality. This is just one new product among hundreds being released this year. It's better that LEGO have a slice of the pie (in this case introducing elementary school level children to programming) than put all their eggs in one basket. It's true that LEGO owes its success to the timeless nature of its brick building system, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't try new things.

Which ties in with Dimensions. Toys to life games as a whole are not what they used to be, and maybe Disney was right to get out of the market early on, but Dimensions gave many builders and collectors minifigures and elements from licensed intellectual properties that we may otherwise have never seen, all at a much lower cost to LEGO (outsourcing game development to Warner, no need to design entire sets and box designs around a theme that would only consist of one to three set) and consumers.

Funny to me how all you kids consider Beetlejuice to be obscure. It was an incredibly popular Tim Burton film with a sequel still in development.
Guess I'm just old and outdated, but I think it's great fun to see it get the Lego treatment and is a little more noteworthy for us older kids than "if anyone cares". It's all good though kiddies, you get your wish, the "wretched" Dimensions will soon end ;)

@The Rancor re lantern constructs. Up until now she has been but i've read (i think on bricks to life abilities preview) that Powerpuff girls have this.
Also, after a software update yesterday, i saw hire a hero for lantern construct in the Fantastic Beasts level.

By in United Kingdom,

I have loved Dimensions from day one, and it actually encouraged me to look at and buy the other Lego games. I own all the minfigures, and have spent a huge amount of time playing it and attempting to get all the achievements and gold bricks. There are many of us out there who have really enjoyed Dimensions, and I feel that part of the lack of success has been the ill informed negative press from many AFOLs ("it's too expensive" - have you seen what AFOLs spend on Bricklink and some large Lego sets...). I watch neither Powerpuff girls nor Teen Titans Go, and have yet to see Beetlejuice, but will still be buying all these sets. If they are reviewed on Brickset, lets have someone do so that actually enjoys Dimensions, rather than someone who is prejudiced against it before they start.

Every Dollarama in Canada has been selling Dimensions packs for $4 (Canadian dollars) each for months now! Cross the border into United Snakes of Arrestobia, and you will find them in 99 cent only and other dollar stores starting at 99 cents. I have got a number of Dimensions packs this way. Don't be calling others a sham just because you haven't noticed them yet in your local dollar store.

I hope there is a year 3 - even if it's just a Grand Finale Wave 10 on green or purple year 3 tags - giving us a few final licenses just so TT can say they kept their promise. Keeping fingers xed - enough of the Dimensions dead rumor until LEGO actually announces it!

@ggfile While it is true that back in January, 99 Cents Only stores in 4 western states managed to buy a number of Wave One packs, those are long gone. Walmart has those same Fun Packs on Clearance for $9 right now. By setting up trades online, and locally, I managed to get duplicates of W1. Five Below, a store I am not familiar with carries them at $5/ea

Gravatar
By in United States,

My kids still love these, I have been hearing "when is Teen Titans pack getting here" for 2 months. I have learned my lesson and generally just buy them when they are 50% off. We now own all but 3 packs/sets. @ 50% off the minifigures alone are a good deal. I'd like to see more come out but at same time, it would save me $ if they ended it, which does seem likely. I guess we'll see if any new packs are announced.
