The mashup world of LEGO Dimensions is headed back in time to the ’80s with the addition of a range of new LEGO sets and associated video game levels based around the 1985 feature film The Goonies.
If you weren’t an a kid in the ’80s yourself, the sword-wielding Excalibur Batman is on hand to explain what makes The Goonies so cool in the latest episode of the fictional LEGO Dimensions talk show Meet that Hero.
While the kids from the film don’t get much of an introduction themselves, their buddy Sloth steals the show in this short animation. LEGO Batman might not be so keen on Sloth’s Superman shirt, but at least he has enough spare costumes to chuck a Bat-shirt Sloth’s way. By the end of the short, Robin and Batgirl turn up to show everyone the pirate ship they’ve found.
Now available, the LEGO Dimensions Goonies story packs support six immersive level of adventure, with secret caves, an old lighthouse, a lost map, treacherous traps and the hidden treasure of One-Eyed Willie.
Meanwhile, The Lego Batman Movie is set for digital release on May 19 from Amazon Video and iTunes with the DVD and Blu-ray release date following on June 13.
