The LEGO Dimensions products officially announced by LEGO have not yet been released as new packs have already been unveiled by an American brand (Walmart).

Trois Fun Packs (a minifigure and a micro-construction) Legends of Chima are expected and they will contain the minifigs of Cragger, Eris et Laval, we will also find in departments two Team Packs (two minifigs and two micro-constructions) with some Jurassic World and Scooby-Doo inside and two Level Packs (a minifig and two micro-constructions) allowing you to unlock new levels based on universes The Simpsons et Portal.

Regarding the Portal license, it will be remembered that a lego ideas project had reached during the summer of 2012 the 10.000 supporters required to enter the review phase but that the project was then rejected by LEGO at the end of 2013. It therefore seems that the idea of ​​using this license was ultimately not completely abandoned by LEGO ...

The descriptive sheets for these different packs, accessible via the links above, are not complete and no visual is available for the moment.
