One of my biggest gripes with LEGO Dimensions is how expensive this particular toys-to-life game is, especially with how much they remind you of what you need to constantly buy. You’d think I wouldn’t jump in and buy anything outside of what I’ve already purchased, the Portal 2 and Back to the Future Level Packs, but no, I couldn’t help myself. There are some Fun Packs and Team Packs I do want, and there are future Level Packs and Fun Packs I know I will get. All because I am part of the problem.
In fact, over the weekend, I bought one Team Pack and two Fun Packs. Because I’m part of the problem.
Have I played with these packs yet? Oh hell no. I haven’t had the time for it. But look at how cute Benny’s Spaceship is!
And then of course I want Wonder Woman with her Invisible Jet and most likely any other DC Comics character thrown my way, Doc Brown, and the Ghostbusters Level Pack. I’ll probably spend more on these toys than I have on Skylanders, and I own more Trap Team characters than I thought I would. I’m just going to keep my fingers crossed that TT Games and WB does what they said they would, and that’s to create more level packs to use with the original game, not make a LEGO Dimensions 2 and fall into the Disney Infinity and Skylanders hole. I know it’s wishful thinking, but they really could make far more money by selling toys with more content than trying to sell another game. Skylanders is discovering that now.
At least now when I wonder why I’m so broke, I can physically see why on my desk with the toy portal and now dozen of LEGO toys.
I need help. Send help. But only after the Ghostbusters Level Pack releases.
