LEGO Dimensions was just the beginning for some franchises and themes
With recent rumours, the number of themes introduced in LEGO Dimensions may have just doubled, and there are a few more brands that debuted in bricks as part of the game too.
Despite its demise, LEGO Dimensions was an undoubtedly ambitious project for the teams at TT Games and the LEGO Group, bringing in dozens of franchises and brands in one of the biggest crossovers in history.
However, while the game’s support is now over, some franchises have continued to have a presence in the world of LEGO beyond the end of LEGO Dimensions.
Here’s a look at every brand debuted in bricks as part of LEGO Dimensions that continued as a full theme or in sets. Some of the later models were likely in development during LEGO Dimensions’ release, but they launched after their respective brand’s debut in the game so we’ll include them all here.
The Wizard of Oz
Introduced via the 71221 Wicked Witch Fun Pack in September 2015 in the first wave of LEGO Dimensions, The Wizard of Oz would go on to receive another enemy minifigure with the Flying Monkeys and the returning Wicked Witch in 70917 The Ultimate Batmobile in 2017.
However, that wasn’t the end for LEGO The Wizard of Oz with four more minifigures for the main cast in 71023 The LEGO Movie 2 Collectable Minifigures Series in 2019.
As part of LEGO Dimensions’ second year in September 2016, Adventure Time received a Level Pack, Team Pack and Fun Pack with minifigures of Finn, Jake, Lumpy Space Princess and then Marceline in February 2017.
Arriving just before 71285 Marceline the Vampire Queen Fun Pack in January 2017 was 21308 Adventure Time, a LEGO Ideas set depicting these characters and more as brick-built figures. Unfortunately, that’s it for LEGO Adventure Time so far and with the series ending, there may not be a future for the show in LEGO.
The Powerpuff Girls
Bringing one new brick for each of The Powerpuff Girls in September 2017 was 71343 Buttercup Fun Pack and 71346 The Powerpuff Girls Team Pack including minifigures of Buttercup, Blossom and Bubbles from the animated series.
This is the only brand that had its LEGO debut in the game so far to receive a full theme, though only with two sets in 2018. Both 41287 Bubbles’ Playground Showdown and 41288 Mojo Jojo Strikes introduced a new minifigure with Princess Morbucks and Mojo Jojo respectively.
Sonic the Hedgehog
Also included in the second year of LEGO Dimensions but in November 2016 was 71244 Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack, bringing the Blue Blur to life with a new element for the head. In 2022 thanks to the help of a LEGO Ideas project, 21331 Sonic the Hedgehog – Green Hill Zone was released to bring back the minifigure over five years later.
However, rumours suggest that this isn’t the end for LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog with a full theme similar to The Powerpuff Girls later in 2023. It’s said that there will be five sets ranging between $29.99 and $99.99 offering buildable courses that can be combined with one another and a launcher to fire minifigures in clear balls. That’s a fair bit bigger than the likes of LEGO The Powerpuff Girls if accurate.
