Wizard of Oz figures is pretty cool and pretty damn random.

So I guess they'll probably get Harry Potter and Jurassic Park down the line?

No to Star Wars though I guess, that's going to be Disney Infinity.

They might get Star Wars too, the Lego Dimensions and Disney Infinity figurines are different enough that I don't think they will compete with one another.

I don't think Disney will allow it. 

Star Wars Disney Infinity is going to be a huge thing basically on its own and will be the trump card of Disney Infinity 3 with The Force Awakens releasing this holiday. 

Still there are plenty of IP for LEGO to get. Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, Ghostbusters, Simpsons (!), more DC characters, etc.

no.  it is lego equilant of skylanders..

I dont know looks more Disney Infinity to me.



those NFC figures are basically DLC with some plastic -> massive margin. no wonder they 'all' want to do it.



must-have-list for platforms i don't own yet:

WiiU: Donkey Kong

XBone: Dead Rising 3, Ryse

Back to the Future? Does that mean I'll have self-lacing shoes soon?



My true form. You like it?

I wonder how retailers are going to deal with the shelf space needed for all these NFC toy lines, lol. Was already getting cramped with three of them. Bye bye Vita section in many stores I think.

I really feel for parents these days, Skylanders, Infinity, amiibo and now Lego. That is a a ton of little figures kids will be asking for.

U make it seem like kids weren't constantly asking for toys before these released lol



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Pre-orders are apparently up on Amazon already.

True, but I've seen the craze of collecting these figures in particular create.  When I was a kid there was generally "the toy" you wanted instead of a set of 10-30 toys.



I'm surprised Lego didn't jump on this way sooner, or even came up with it in the first place. They are in the perfect position as a (leading) toy-maker!
