In the latest trailer for LEGO Dimensions, Christopher Lloyd returns as the eccentric, white-haired super scientist Doc Brown. After receiving a mysterious package on his front doorstep, Lloyd assembles the contents into the LEGO Dimensions portal, with a healthy sprinkling of Back to the Future nostalgia as he works. All in all, it’s an entertaining trailer.
It looks like the Doc Brown character will have access to a time-manipulating stopwatch, a remote control that shocks enemies with 1.21 jigowatts of lightning, and his flying time train from Back to the Future 3.
LEGO Dimensions is LEGO’s answer to Activision’s Skylanders, Nintendo’s Amiibos and Disney’s Infinity games. Dimensions will have access to a wide variety of franchises, possibly even rivaling Disney Infinity. So far LEGO has shown Dimensions will include characters and levels from DC Comics, Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings, The Wizard of Oz, LEGO Ninjago and of course The LEGO Movie.
This is only the second trailer for Dimensions and I’m excited to see who else they bring in to promote the other product universes. Perhaps Ian McKellen to promote the Lord of the Rings characters? Or maybe Ben Affleck toying around with Batman? Whatever they decide, I’m sure it will be the exact same kind of LEGO fun.
