'LEGO Dimensions' to include 'Doctor Who,' 'Portal,' Scooby-Doo

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment trumpeted its "toy-to-life" console game LEGO Dimensions last month, it promised "a lot more" properties would join the likes of DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings and Back to the Future at launch. Thanks to a leak, we now know at least some of them -- including Doctor Who, Portal 2, Jurassic World and The Simpsons.

Similar in approach to the popular Skylanders and Disney Infinity, LEGO Dimensions will enable players to purchase LEGO sets that they’ll build into characters, vehicles and devices that can be introduced into the game with the Toy Pad. They'll be able to mix and match characters and objects from a range of properties, changing and expanding gameplay.

Among those unannounced properties, Brickset discovered through since-removed downloaded instructions on the LEGO site, are the aforementioned Doctor Who (featuring the Doctor, the TARDIS and K9), the first-person puzzle game Portal 2, Jurassic World (which is getting its own LEGO game), Scooby-Doo (already part of a deal between Warner Bros. and LEGO) and The Simpsons.

In addition, images have surfaced of previously announced "fun packs" of characters like Wonder Woman and Cyborg from DC Comics, Gollum, Gimli and Legolas from The Lord of the Rings, and the Wicked Witch from The Wizard of Oz, alongside surprises, like Bart and Krusty the Clown from The Simpsons. You can see all of the leaked images at Brickset.

Developed by TT Games, LEGO Dimensions arrives Sept. 27.
