Lego Dimensions' upcoming packs based on Beetlejuice, Powerpuff Girls and Teen Titans Go! finally have a release date: 15th September.
Lego Dimensions' second year continues on 12th May with the arrival of packs themed around 80s movie favourite The Goonies, upcoming HD re-release Lego City Undercover and... Hermione from Harry Potter.
Lego Dimensions' Fantastic Beasts expansion has now been patched to include the film's full ending.
The story pack originally launched with a slightly different story cut in place - one that did not include the appearance of a particular actor.
(If you are yet to watch the film and want to stay unspoiled, look away now.)
More than a year after Lego Dimensions launched, a committed team of fans have hunted down an extremely well-hidden secret.
Red Dwarf has landed in Lego Dimensions, via a new area of the game hidden in the the upcoming Fantastic Beasts expansion.
We already knew Sonic the Hedgehog would join Lego Dimensions this November - but we hadn't seen everyone he was bringing along for the ride.
Lego Dimensions' new Ghostbusters adaptation includes a cheeky nod at the internet drama that enveloped this year's movie.
This coming week, toys-to-life franchise mash-up Lego Dimensions will start its second year, and begin rolling out an even larger range of new inclusions than its initial offering.
Earlier this year it was leaked that fan-favourite DC character Supergirl would be coming to Lego Dimensions. But now there's a hitch: she'll be exclusive to the game's PS4 edition.
Equally bothersome, you'll only be able to acquire her by buying the game's next Starter Pack due in September - which will no doubt be rather expensive as it contains the core game, toy pad, and three basic figurines to get you started.
In short, if you already own the game you'll have to buy it again should you want to play as Kara Zor-El.
Last weekend, Sega unveiled not one but two new Sonic titles headed our way in 2017.
We already know about the huge number of new franchises headed to Lego Dimensions for its second year. We already know which will arrive first, when the game returns for its second season this September.
Lego Dimension's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them expansion has been spotted, thanks to the new Argos catalogue.
We knew a Lego Dimensions tie-in for the upcoming Harry Potter spin-off was on the way, but not what it would contain.
Now we know - you'll get a Newt Scamander minifigure, Niffler animal and a fresh Lego desktop theme for your portal based upon MACUSA - the Magical Congress of the United States of America, aka the US version of the Ministry of Magic.
UPDATE 2.10pm A whopping 16 new franchises are joining Lego Dimensions for its second year, Warner Bros. has now confirmed.
Lego Dimensions is nearing the end of its successful first year - just one small release of figures is left, next month - but we may already have a glimpse at what's coming next.
Lego Dimensions players have uncovered two new hidden areas of the game, themed around classic cartoons The Flintstones and The Jetsons.
Toys-to-life adventure game Lego Dimensions has added a new Hire A Hero feature that allows you to play as characters you don't own yourself.
A team of Lego enthusiasts are uncovering hints to unannounced Lego Dimensions sets via a coding quirk of Lego.com.
There's a scene in the film Hook where Peter Pan and the Lost Boys sit down for a glorious feast, pungent vapour wafting from pots and pans piled high on a table before them. The lids come off and the children stuff their big satisfied mouths, but Pan, the adult, stays still. He's forgotten how to use his imagination: he can't see the food. He no longer sees the magic.
Avoid-worthy Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 has debuted in 11th place within the UK all-formats chart.
As both a parent and a gamer, I'm torn by Lego Dimensions.
It's an often wonderful game, one of the best in TT Games long-running series, and one that moves the familiar template forwards in clever and exciting ways. It's ingeniously written and structured too, juggling over a dozen character franchises with a confidence that masks the challenge of getting everything from Ghostbusters to Portal working together in a single story. It's also arguably the first game to truly deliver on the "toys to life" promise first made by Skylanders in 2011.
Lego will launch its opening salvo into the competitive toys to games market next week with the arrival of Lego Dimensions' starter set and first wave of expansion packs.
Lego Dimensions, Traveller's Tales' toys-to-life merging of various Lego brands in one colossal package, has announced its truly impressive voice cast.
Gamescom is a beautiful, hot, noisy mess of a show and an utter delight to visit. Sadly, not everyone can go - and this year, that includes me. But thankfully, we packed Chris Bratt off to tour the show with a camera in hand to capture just what attending the world's biggest gaming show is like.
All of the Doctor Whos are in Warner Bros. Interactive's Lego Dimensions game - but only Peter Capaldi has done voice acting.
I mean, of course. It's so obvious when you think about it, but it still manages to give me a teeny thrill when it's said out loud. "Yeah, you saw the Riddler riding on a Balrog, but the development team were like 'Oh, we've got Gollum as well, so who would win in a riddle fight between Gollum and the Riddler? Why don't we put that in the game?'" Well why not indeed, though I'm still undecided over the outcome of that particular showdown.
UPDATE: Hours later and Lego has indeed announced its own Minecraft-style sandbox game, Lego Worlds. It's available now via Steam Early Access.
Just in case you were worried that there wouldn't be enough additional toy packs released for Lego Dimensions, WB Games has announced even more add-ons - and released a trailer in which Christopher Lloyd reprises his role as Dr Emmett Brown from Back to the Future.
Doc Brown is one of the newly announced Fun Packs, which contain a minifigure and related vehicle. In his case, that's the steam train from Back to the Future Part 3. The iconic DeLorean is already included with the Back to the Future Level Pack, you see, along with Marty McFly and his hoverboard.
Other Fun Packs announced today include two from Ninjago, featuring Sensei Wu and Lloyd, and three from DC Comics, featuring Superman, Aquaman and Bane. There'll also be a DC Comics Team Pack containing Joker and Harley Quinn.
Lego has published official images of its Portal 2, Doctor Who and The Simpsons level packs for the upcoming Lego Dimensions.

The Portal 2 pack features protagonist Chell and her portal gun, plus a turret and laser block.
