Tiny Batman Is Just One Reason Why I Love LEGO Dimensions

lego dimensions small batman

Who doesn’t love Lego? Those tiny little building blocks have been the basis for tons of adventures around the world. I remember when I was a kid in my sandbox playing with LEGO and accidentally swallowing a block and nearly choking. My mum freaked and gave me the Heimlich manoeuvre. That was the only time LEGO has been my enemy. Other than that, I love the stuff.

Now, the billions and billions of LEGO fans around the world can look forward to bringing their toys to life in LEGO Dimensions.

At E3 I got to take a look at LEGO Dimensions. Honestly, you should have seen the grin on my face. I must have looked like the Cheshire cat. I was thrilled to get to see this latest incarnation of one of my favourite ever toys. And I was not disappointed.

LEGO Dimensions is all about the “Toy Portal”, a device which allows you to bring new characters and vehicles into the game.

It’s a lot like Skylanders, Disney Infinity and amiibos. You take physical LEGO blocks and use them as characters, vehicles and weapons in the game.

You can place seven different figures on the Toy Portal, so you can choose to switch between the likes of Gandalf, Batman, Scooby Doo, and Marty McFly. Those LEGO figures are also “robots in disguise” because you can physically transform them. I took the Batmobile and transformed it in the Batgun and then went nuts and started firing the Batgun all over the place blowing up everything in sight.


You use the Toy Pad in different modes: Chroma, Locate, Shift, Scale & Elemental, each of which gives characters a different function.

In one section I played through I had to use the Chroma mode to turn switches to a specific colour to get through a doorway.  Scale mode was my favourite mode (love it). In scale more you place a mini-figure on the side of the Toy Pad to make it bigger or smaller.I loved making Batman tiny (he looks so cute) and then running through a secret passageway.

The different modes are all fun and innovative, and they’re used together to allow you to solve puzzles and progress in the game.

You shall not pass! XD

Cute little Lego Gandalf says YOU SHALL NOT PASS!

The best part about the Toy Pad is that you can use it change your character. Different characters have different abilities, so you’ll need to be changing your toys out quite often.

I love the design of the LEGO characters themselves and the game is really fun and innovative.

LEGO Dimensions is being released in September. I’m hoping to spend quite a lot of time with it between now and then. So, if we’re not connected yet on Facebook and Twitter then be sure to use the buttons below to keep up with me.
