The latest wave (7 if you’re counting) of LEGO Dimensions adds a whole new set of pop culture icons to the video game platform.
From 80’s creatures to modern beasts, this collection offers up another eclectic mix of characters immortalised in classic and video game LEGO.
I’ll update this rundown of LEGO Dimensions series 7 as we get through each pack.
LEGO Dimensions Wave 7: Gremlins Team Pack
1980’s kiddie horror classic comes Gremlins comes to LEGO Dimensions, with Gizmo and Stripe. This also comes with the R.C. Racer and Flash ‘n’ Finish (ie. Polaroid) camera mini-kits.
You get the environments of Bedford Falls (Gremlins) and New York (Gremlins 2).
I love this set – the minifigures are spot on in looks, though it’s a shame only Stripes legs are posable.
LEGO Dimensions Wave 7: E.T., Fun Pack
Another even more famous Spielberg 1980′ movie icon comes to LEGO Dimensions in the E.T Fun pack.
As well as a nicely designed minifigure (with flower accessory) you also get an eighties phone minikit that also turns into his message transmitter and a satellite.
LEGO Dimensions Wave 7: Sonic Level Pack
A videogame icon returns via the magic of LEGO in the form of Sonic the Hedgehog.
This level pack not only gives you a great Sonic figure and two mini kits – it also adds extra playable levels to the game.
LEGO Dimensions Wave 7: Fantastic Beasts, Fun Pack
The first pack to tie in with the new JK Rowling Potterverse franchise Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, is also the only set to feature a female minifigure.
This fun pack has the Tina Goldstein minifigure as well as the Swooping Evil minikit.
LEGO Dimensions Wave 7: Fantastic Beasts, Story Pack
The headliner of this wave is this Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Story Pack.
It has a figure of the lead character Newt Scamander, a minikit of Niffler (which can be rebuilt into the Sinister Scorpion and Vicious Vulture), and a very impressive new MACUSA gateway build for your LEGO Toy Pad – but most importantly of all you can play out the story of the entire movie.
We were sent series 7 of LEGO Dimensions for the purposes of this review.
