In 2012-2016 Toys to Life games were huge. There were Skylanders, Disney Infinity and LEGO Dimensions. I recently decided that these toys from those series were simply taking up space around here so I pulled them off the shelf and started using them again in my video lifestreams. I am starting with LEGO Dimensions and going to play through the game over the course of the next several weeks during my LEGO Lunchtime Livestreams.
Twice a week will be building LEGO and twice a week will be playing LEGO Dimensions. I am learning that my toys from the series aren’t all working properly. So far three of the characters do not get recognized by the Toypad. Those are Gizmo, Stripe and Home J. Simpson. I haven’t tried all of them yet, I’m in the middle of downloading all the updates I need on the XBox. Maybe they will start working again, I am not sure. But we’ll see. I would hate to not be able to do the Gremlins world because I have no character to unlock it. I can still play the Simpson’s world because I have a working Bart Simpson, just not a Homer. So far I think people are enjoying the stream. Here’s wat one looks like.
Teen Titans go, The Powerpuff girls and Beetlejuice join in the fun in LEGO dimensions. Five brand new expansion packs were released. There were three fun packs and two team packs released. With that there are three new areas to explore and for the first time an exclusive animated episode from Teen Titans Go! I received the five expansion packs yesterday for free to play with and review. Opinions are my own.
When the LEGO Dimensions expansion packs arrived I started building right away. I built Beetlejuice first because I am a child of the 80’s and was looking forward to this crazy character and his sand worm vehicle. I saved the Teen Titans Go! sets to build with Andrew because he is the biggest fan in the house of that show. Here is the trailer of the new packs.
I spent the day building as many of the LEGO Dimensions characters that I could. In addition to all of Wave 9 I had a bunch that I hadn’t done yet, some from wave 1 of year one. But at this point I am all but finished with building the sets except for two last Level Packs from Year One. I built Beetlejuice and the Sand Worm and then all of the Powerpuff girls figures and vehicles. I saved Teen Titans Go! for Andrew to build. He is the big fan of that show and he was over the moon to build all three figures and then their vehicles.
Now, I haven’t played with the figures in their own dimensions yet. The issue is that I ran out of room for the LEGO Dimensions files on my Wii U and had to store them on the USB connected drive. The issue there was that I only had a 16GB flash drive connected and that wasn’t enough to move the LEGO Dimensions files over and then download the new ones. So I had to format one of my older USB drives. I spent part of the day backing up and transferring files. I only just finished so now I am downloading all the files I need to actually play with the new characters in their dimensions.
I can tell you that the figures and vehicles look great and the voices of the characters are also awesome. I particularly like Beast Boy because he is voiced by Greg Cipes. I like all that he does. The Beast Boy figure can turn into a bird and fly or slam the ground like a dolphin and fling snakes. I know that I am going to enjoy exploring all the different things the characters can do and I am looking forward to watching that exclusive episode that is most likely downloading in the next room at the moment.
