Frank Herbert once said, “There is no real ending. It’s just the place where they stop the story” and that’s how I feel at the end of season 2 of LEGO Dimensions. Last week marked the final wave of new toys from the series and perhaps the final wave ever. If this is the last hurrah the game is going out with a bang. The Powerpuff Girls, Teen Titans, and Beetlejuice have joined in on the fun.
Season 2 of LEGO Dimensions has been amazing. We’ve sped through levels collecting coins with Sonic the Hedgehog, relived the 80’s with Knight Rider, laughed alongside LEGO Batman, hunted for treasure with the Goonies, seen Hogwarts in Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, took a trip to LEGO City and got lost in Adventure Time. I’m probably missing a few but it’s hard to keep track with some many great additions.
Wave nine consists of team packs (two characters and two accessories/vehicles) and fun packs (one character and accessory) for Teen Titans Go and Powerpuff Girls, as well as a fun pack for the Michael Keaton classic, Beetlejuice. The first kit I built was Beetlejuice and unfortunately, Michael doesn’t lend his voice but the voice actor sure does sound like him.
Beetlejuice is another odd 80’s choice but he works well in this universe. The level begins with him in a big vast desert wasteland confused before moving into the creepy house on the hill. The house is full of puzzles and collectibles as well as a miniature world. It’s short and sweet but a pretty unique world.
Next up is the Powerpuff Girls. I haven’t seen the new series yet, and it’s probably best, so I was very excited to see what was in store for me.
First off the toys are awesome. I love Bubbles’ stuffed Octopus and I officially want my own. I also love the size of the girl’s heads. They look just like their cartoon counterpoints.
The girl’s world is exactly the opposite of Beetlejuice’s home. It’s colorful and futuristic and you can fly around it. The Powerpuff Girls world is alive and captures the look of the show perfectly.
I didn’t get to play the Teen Titans pack yet, but I have Robin and Cyborg so I might as well complete the gang.
We haven’t heard anything about LEGO Dimensions since E3 2016 so this could be the end of the road for an incredible series. I hope this isn’t goodbye, but if it is thanks for the memories and for smashing so many of my favorite shows and movies together into one zany world.
