Doctor Who, The Simpsons, Portal 2, Scooby Doo & Jurassic World come to Lego Dimensions on Wii U, PS4, PS3, Xbox One & Xbox 360!

Lego Dimensions is the upcoming Traveler’s Tales-developed Toys to Life entry for publisher Warner Bros.; who will enter the bustling genre already occupied by Disney (Disney Infinity 3.0), Activision (Skylanders: Swap Force) and Nintendo (Amiibo), by attempting to crowd one of them out with the power of Lego and a diverse portfolio of beloved, well-known TV & movie properties!

Like with the above titles, fans will be urged to purchase a plethora of new Lego Toys which they can then bring into the game.

Check out this absolutely must-watch Lego Dimensions commercial where none other than Christopher Lloyd himself steps back into the shoes of The Doc from Back to the Future to reprise his role for Lego Dimensions!

These new properties join the previously announced Lego Ninjago, DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, The Lego Movie, Lego Chima and The Wizard of Oz.

Bringing the total number of Lego Dimensions properties to 11.

NOT BAD. NOT BAD AT ALL!

I wonder if Lego Dimensions will successfully be able to crowd out one of the other Toy to Life franchises (Nintendo’s Amiibo, Activision’s Skylanders or Disney Infinity).

If I had to bet, I’d say that Skylanders is the most likely to get crowded out.

That’s because three IS a crowd. Therefore, I don’t know if all of them can be successful at once.

There’s tons of Skylanders fans, sure, but can Skylanders really compete with Lego & these new properties PLUS Star Wars, Marvel & Disney?

I guess Nintendo kinda doesn’t count, they are a bit different. So maybe all three CAN be successful (four if you count Nintendo).

Either way, Lego Dimensions is such a perfect fit for an entry into the space. It’s amazing how it came about. I can’t believe they got Lloyd to do that commercial (Well I can, it IS Warner Bros. after all). Absolutely hilarious, and the new properties will definitely add some diversity to their lineup.

Which are you most looking forward to in Lego Dimensions? Doctor Who? Jurassic World? Portal 2? The Simpsons or Scooby Doo?
