Here are some franchise ideas that would be a great addition to the game Lego Dimensions.

We are all huge fans of the Lego games that come into our lives to offer a little humor and a lot of fun. From franchise-specific games to Lego Dimensions, Lego characters have a place in our hearts. It’s also obvious the developers love them as well.

Lego Dimensions currently features wonderful characters from fourteen franchises. You’ll find DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, The Lego Movie, The Wizard of Oz, Portal 2, Lego Ninjago, Lego Legends of Chima, Jurassic World, Doctor Who, The Simpsons, Ghostbusters, Scooby-Doo, Back to the Future, and Midway Arcade.

But there are always more characters just waiting to be added. Here are our picks for franchises that would make great additions to Lego Dimensions.

Harry Potter

Warner Bros. has brought the wonderful world of Harry Potter to life in Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and Lego Harry Potter: Years 5-7. Who can say it wouldn’t fit perfectly in Lego Dimensions? Many fans are hoping their favorite beloved characters make their way into the game.

Characters like:

  • Harry Potter
  • Hermione Granger
  • Ron Weasley
  • Sirius Black
  • Professor Dumbledore
  • Professor Snape
  • Lord Voldemort

Marvel Universe

With games like Lego Superheroes and Lego Marvel Avengers, fitting these characters into Dimension seems like a no-brainer. There are already characters from the DC Universe, so why not add Marvel?

Imagine having Batman and Ironman, or Frodo and Hulk being required to work together against the forces of Lord Vortech. Imagine the back-and-forth dialogue between The Doctor and Tony Stark. That alone would have me in stitches thinking about the ultimate Sumo wrestling of brain power.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

These Kung Fu, pizza-eating, mutated turtles are the ultimate in fun. Since the 1980s, they have captured the heart of fans young and older. The Lego Multiverse just seems incomplete without the TMNT teaming up to protect the Twelve Foundational Elements.

We’d love to see some of the great characters from the series, such as:

  • Donatello
  • Michaelangelo
  • Leonardo
  • Raphael
  • Splinter
  • Shredder
  • April O’Neil
  • Casey Jones
  • Karai

Lord Vortech would have a run for his money with Shredder and the Foot Clan in a bid for control.

Plants vs. Zombies

Plants vs. Zombies is such a beloved series. This adorable Walking Dead of gardening has found its way from mobile to consoles, to even comics by Paul Tobin. Any of the hilarious characters would be fun to see as an addition.

Characters such as:

  • Sunflower
  • Disco Zombie
  • Chomper
  • Zombie Yeti
  • Gatling Peashooter
  • Dr. Zomboss


Firefly is a cult favorite by Joss Whedon. This science-fiction/western didn’t last long on air, but stayed forever in the hearts of fans. Fitting in the beloved characters, prior to Serenity, would definitely make Lego Dimensions a must-buy on principal!

Character favorites include:

  • Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds
  • Zoe Washburne
  • River Tam
  • Kaywinnet Lee “Kaylee” Frye
  • Jayne Cobb
  • Hoban “Wash” Washburne

How you’d like a Firefly-class spaceship—anyone?
