Portal, Jurassic Park, The Simpsons Coming to LEGO Dimensions

LEGO Dimensions, the upcoming Skylanders-style toys-to-life game from Warner Bros., already has an impressive lineup of franchises, including Lord of the Rings, Batman, Back to the Future, and Wizard of Oz. But now, new playsets have been revealed based on other popular series, including Portal, Jurassic Park, The Simpsons, and Scooby Doo.

That's according to Walmart listings that have now been removed, but not before LEGO fansite Brick Enquirer saw them. According to the site, LEGO Dimensions will offer Team Packs based on Jurassic World and Scooby Doo, while Level Packs for The Simpsons and Portal will be available.

Team Packs ($15) come with plastic toys only, while Level Packs ($30) offer the toys and in-game content. The LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, meanwhile, costs $100 and comes with the game, a Toy Pad (similar to the Portal of Power from Skylanders), three minifigures (Gandalf, Batman, Wyldstyle), and a Batmobile toy.

LEGO Dimensions was announced last month. It launches in September for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Wii U.

The game joins the growing toys-to-life category, following Skylanders, Disney Infinity, and Amiibo. Activision's Skylanders series, the first toys-to-life game, is the biggest of the bunch, with more than 240 million toys sold far, driving more than $3 billion in lifetime revenue. Activision isn't the only one seeing success, however, as demand for Nintendo's Amiibo toys has been incredibly strong.
