Lego Prepares to Take the Rest of Your Money with 'Lego Dimensions'

Keen on getting a piece of that Disney: Infinite/Skylanders/Nintendo Amiibo action, Lego has just announced Lego Dimensions, another collectible figure video game that merges several licenses into one universe-hopping adventure. Sadly, it doesn't look like we'll be getting Star Wars or Marvel characters in the game for legal reasons, but we'll clearly be seeing familiar faces from The Wizard of Oz, DC Comics, Back to the FutureThe Lord of the Rings and Ghostbusters. Oh, and naturally, folks from The Lego Movie will play into this pretty heavily.

The Lego Dimensions Starter Pack retails for $99.99 on current-gen consoles, and comes with Gandalf, Batman and The Lego Movie's Wyldstyle, along with a Batmobile vehicle. Additional figures will come packed with DLC, following the model established by similar games in this genre.

Joel McHale stars in the trailer, which you can watch below.
