It's been a long time coming, but we're now ready to reveal our latest and largest partnership to date! Read on, because it's going to be great!Mustache Maniacs Film Co. has fostered numerous partnerships over the past several years, including the authors of the DINO ATTACK RPG, CarTOON Shack, and many others. Today, we are pleased to announce our biggest partnership yet: Warner Bros. Games, in order to bring our fan-favorite characters to the popular toys-to-life game LEGO Dimensions, among many others from outside our library of films. We have now been given express permission to showcase the next wave of expansion packs and what it has to offer. These all-new year 3 expansion packs will work with the existing game and all year 1 and year 2 packs, creating an even wider array of wild combinations.
Releasing this August are ten new packs that expand the game in ways not thought possible. A story pack based around the smash-hit film Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo will let players experience the magic of the movie in a way unique to LEGO Dimensions, as players quest for the Golden Dragon while discovering a new keystone that will help thwart Lord Vortech’s plans. To complement this pack, a team pack containing fan-favorite henchmen Patrick Hooligans and William “Billy the Kid” Parker and a fun pack containing Hiram Aziz will also be released.
Two level packs will take players through the stories of the Com 50 trilogy and The Adventures of Legoman, re-creating beloved moments from these films, while also giving players access to brand-new adventure worlds and battle arenas based on these respective properties.
For additional fun, character-based packs will also be released, including a Gangster Folio Byrd fun pack from The Kingfisher, a Forest of Fear team pack featuring Mary and Leo, an Ogel fun pack from Alpha Team: Mission Deep Jungle, a Zachary Virchaus fun pack from DINO ATTACK: Saga of a Conflict, and, from outside Mustache Maniacs Film Co., a TTV Channel-based fun pack containing Mesonak. All of these expansion packs also unlock battle arenas, as well as their respective adventure worlds. Venture into these new adventure worlds and travel to iconic locations from each franchise, including the Dragon Fortress, Howling Hollow, DINO ATTACK HQ, Ogel's Jungle Stronghold, the Legocave, TTV Studios, and many more.
As year 3 progresses from August 2017 through May 2018, additional story packs will be introduced into the game, including A Future in the Past and, also from outside Mustache Maniacs Film Co., The LEGO Ninjago Movie. Beyond these story packs, additional franchises being introduced into the world of LEGO Dimensions are An Afternoon at the Zoo, LEGO Rock Raiders, LEGO Universe, LEGO Nexo Knights, LEGO Island, The Big Bang Theory, Minecraft, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Saban’s Power Rangers, The Angry Birds Movie, Magnum P.I., Emergency!, Short Circuit, and Steven Universe. Many more details and an official trailer will follow at E3 2017.
Until that time comes however, we have also been given permission to reveal images of the next wave of expansion packs, set to release late in August, as well as a reveal video for the new wave of packs. Both can be found below. Also, check back later today, as we'll be revealing the rest of the Mustache Maniacs Film Co. based expansion packs.
