LEGO Dimensions Wave 7.5 Out February 10, 2017 (LEGO Batman Movie & Knight Rider)

lego-dimensions-wave-8

UPDATE: LEGO Dimensions is now officially referring to this wave as Wave 7.5, rather than a full blown Wave 8. Looks like Marceline will be available everywhere on February 10th as well, after his timed exclusivity ends at Toys”R”Us (where she launches in November). This makes more sense for why this wave is smaller.

Original Story:

LEGO Dimensions started the new work week off with a surprise announcement of Wave 8 Wave 7.5.

In this wave, you can pick up three new packs.

These three packs will be out on February 10th, 217 (the same day as the LEGO Batman film).

The LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack will be the third Story Pack released for LEGO Dimensions, but unique to this pack is a second minifigure.

Glad they added the second minifigure, as the physical piece count for that pack is much lower than the other packs.

LEGO Dimensions Wave 8 Wave 7.5 follows the release of release of Wave 6 on September 27th (Pre-order them now, plus here is a chance to win some!). Followed by the released of Wave 7 on November 17th (pre-order them now, remember Toys”R”Us has a timed exclusive this wave)

Here is the full press release:

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today revealed details around three highly collectable expansion packs for LEGO® Dimensions™, the LEGO toy and videogame hybrid, that will be available on February 10, 2017.
