Details on Warner’s LEGO Dimensions have been sent over by after information on the new game and toys line leaked earlier this morning.

Rumor of Warner’s version of Skylanders and amiibo surfaced back in mid-March.

In the game, players will use the figurines to take on Lord Vortech using various characters, vehicles and weapons such as: LEGO Bad Cop, the DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future, the Ninjago Masters of Spinjitsu, Wonder Woman and more.

Per this Reddit post, Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle along with the video game and other contents will be packaged with the starter pack.

Other figurines from DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, The LEGO Movie, The Wizard of Oz, LEGO Ninjago, Back to the Future, and others will be announced at a future date.

Additional Level Packs, Team Packs and Fun Packs will be offered and will include buildable characters, vehicles, tools and gadgets, as well as extra game content with new mission-based levels and in-game abilities.

All expansion packs will feature well-known properties with the ability to use everything interchangeably throughout the game.
