Although the writing seemed to be on the wall, we have resisted posting unconfirmed rumors of the game’s demise over the past few months. But today, after two years of content, a parade of characters, and new lines intellectual property for LEGO to play with, Dimensions is officially confirmed to be ending. Wave 9 of expansion packs released last month will be the final packs.
TBB will publish a piece looking at the impact, benefit, and demise of LEGO Dimensions soon, but until then, let’s all raise a glass to the minifigures that could have been but never will. RIP LEGO Dimensions. May we continue to enjoy playing you now that 100% completion is possible as the end is in sight.
With all the UCS Millennium Falcon craziness going on this week, LEGO also quietly released the next (and most likely final) wave of LEGO Dimensions sets. Wave 9 is now on store shelves featuring Beetlejuice, Powerpuff Girls and Teen Titans Go! Unlike past releases, none of the sets is a retailer exclusive, so all should be available from most major retailers.
LEGO has revealed three new Dimensions packs this morning, including some of the first sets for the LEGO Batman Movie and a Fun Pack for Knight Rider. These new sets will be available February 10, 2017, according to the press release below.

As announced earlier this year, LEGO Dimensions is preparing for a new wave of Fun Packs, Level Packs, and Story Packs, all set to become available Nov. 18 this year.
Amazon is offering 40% off select sets in the new wave of LEGO Dimensions if you pre-order! Since the next wave has amazing characters from Adventure Time, The A-Team, Ghostbusters, and Mission Impossible (to name a few!), this is a great chance to order your favorite new characters.
