Target has had Wu at $6 for months without explanation. I suspect that late wave packs in general may have sold less up front because interest will always be lower months later, especially given how high fun packs were (and still are after the $3 MSRP drop) priced compared to any other video game content anywhere. Why is TT still making $60 games with 20+ levels and hundreds of characters from high demand IP's that probably want to be paid real money if they can sell six levels, one playable character, and some lego bricks for $50?


Because as we should have all learned in childhood and been reminded of by DI: when golden eggs are enough to satisfy you all you wind up with are goose guts.

TRU has joker and Harley Quinn team pack (and a few others) for $15.60 and midway level pack for $18.60; the rest are $19.20. Are these great prices or just good prices?

Thanks.

I really hope there are other lego Gremmies aside from the Gizzer. I'd like a Stripe or Mohawk.

 

Also makes me wonder what the accessories included would be. A microwave? Blender? Chainsaw?

 

e: does Warreni literally want to Fuck KITT or something, holy cow

They've been available for a bit cheaper than that before, but those prices aren't too bad.

I'm losing track of all these sales.  Where and for how much was it cheaper?  And I'm not talking about PM+Cartwheel at Target.  I was thinking of jumping on the TRU deals for the team and level packs and was trying to recall the old prices myself.

Midway Arcade Pack was 19.99 (15.99 w/ GCU) at BB on release week at Best Buy. I think all level packs were that price during that week.

Yeah they were all that price, and the Joker/Harley pack was on sale for $14.99 ($11.99 w/ GCU). Other team packs were the same price.

Thanks guys. We are starting Lego Dimensions this weekend and there's no rush at the moment, so I'll wait until they're priced closer to all time lows.

Is the former even possible without the latter?  I assumed it was a symptom.

Thanks, for the info.  I don't have GCU so the TRU price is close enough for me.  Plus, I have some TRU bucks to burn.

All I know is I watching this dude wheel and deal his way around Canada and the US, attempting to pick up every NES cart and then all of a sudden he's talking about his father being a tyrant and some other shit. I turned it off at that point.

Is there a free roam/open world part of this game that I'm missing? My kid and I started it this weekend and, coming from DI where you have a nice open sandbox to explore, this just feels like we are on a very narrow set track with constant reminders of the characters we don't own...

Assuming you haven't been to them yet, the Adventure Worlds are what you're looking for :) I think you can get to them after playing the first story level. There's an elevator on the left side of the portal room. It'll take you to an area that has a bunch of stargate looking circles. Each gate will take you to an Adventure World based on a certain franchise. You just need 1 character from the franchise to be able to visit the world. The adventure worlds are more open and have hidden bricks, simple quests, etc. :)

No problem :D You get the Lego Movie, Batman, and Lord of the rings worlds with the starter pack. The portal world and LoTR are my favorites. If a franchise has a fun / team / story pack, they also have an adventure world.

Okay, so that $6 Sensei Wu gets me "ninjago world" ... That's a bit tempting.

Correct, and pole skill and ninjago spin.

This is the reason why I bought Wu over the weekend.

The WIZARD OF OZ Adventure World is a fun one, and the Wicked Witch is a very handy character. I recommend her for these reasons to those new to the game. Not sure if there have been any good sales on her lately.

Missed out on buying her at Best Buy when all fun packs were $8.49 ($5.99/GCU), but AWD has a like-new floating around for about $8.50 on average.

 

If that monkey she came with wasn't so dreadfully stupid in every way imaginable, I'd have bought her long ago.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm fairly certain the flying monkey (who doesn't even fly until upgraded) is the single most useless, non-unique, and worst-looking physical build in the entire game.

Not an attractive monkey, no. I think he has a couple of decent powers, but I don't remember what they are. I haven't used him since I first played the OZ stuff.

 

We have confirmation of LEGO Stripe in a GREMLINS post from the official account, for those hankering for more Gremlins. I guess that doesn't guarantee a toy, though. I'm sure Gizmo will come with his little car in the Fun Pack.

Pole skill sounds more appropriate to the Showgirls Fun Pack.

Legolas has the skill, which probably gets some fan girls excited.

It doesn't show up in Amazon's search yet for some reason, but here's the new Ghostbusters story pack. $50 gets you 6 levels, an adventure world, battle arena, 1 minifig, 1 vehicle, and a Chinese restaurant (new Ghostbusters HQ) Lego build that replaces the portal build that currently sits on top of the portal gamepad.

Have you seen the newest trailer for it? I also thought it looked like crap from the first trailer they released, but the second one made it look a lot better. I'm hoping it turns out to be good. There's been a few other movies I've seen where they cut a horrible trailer but the movie was great, so with luck maybe that will be the case here too.

I hated Bridesmaids though, so I'm not sure I'd like it anyways.
