LEGO Dimensions Final Wave Ever Released Today

Postby Staff » Tue Sep 12, 2017 2:21 pm

Does anyone still play this game anymore? I know we tried streaming it at one point, but let's be honest, it's pretty boring. Still, if you're a completionist, you can now pick up The Powerpuff Girls and Beetlejuice packs today from your favorite retailer. I'd link to Amazon but they seem to have sold out already. Next best bet would be Best Buy.

Today's release is the final wave for Year 2 content. With nothing announced for the next wave at the recent Gamescom or E3 earlier this year, the future is not looking good. If LEGO Dimensions is taking a break, they need to do or announce something soon to keep whatever momentum they have left going. I get the feeling that interest is dwindling though, and that retailers are not too happy with product sitting on the shelf doing nothing but collecting dust. That being said, if you wait long enough, you're bound to get today's releases at 50% or less.

Out of all of the toys to life products out there, I shouldn't be surprised that Nintendo's amiibo products are still the best performing. Except for Animal Crossing. Let's pretend that never happened shall we?

I would like to treat everyone to my post on July 24, 2013, after the Back to the Future set was released.

A while back I commented that Lego should pursue more classic properties rather than fly by night franchises. A lot of people disagreed, arguing that the Movie of the week would have more appeal to Kids. I disagreed saying that my kids are much more likely to watch my old DVDs which are accessible to them, or old movies on TV, rather than a theatrical release which I may, or more likely may not, take them to see.

So along comes the Back to the Future set and the Lone Ranger. It's hard to measure their success because one has many sets and a large distribution and the other one set with limited distribution. That being said, my money is on Back to the Future to be the more "successful".

... and I really do need a Ghostbuster set in the worst way. Please Lego, take a pass on the next Will Smith dud and make it happen!


Well, I got 3 of 4! Not to mention Gremlins and Goonies.
