LEGO Dimensions Introduces The Midway Arcade Retro Gamer Level Pack!

First of all, this is one of those posts where I feel a little bad about sharing it on the site as it’s not exactly retro on the surface, since it’s dealing with LEGO’s toys-to-life juggernaut that came out just last September…then you look at what it truly is and if you are anything like me you’ve just flipped out.

Hitting store shelves on March 15th, joining the likes of Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, Dr. Who, Scooby-Doo, and the DC Comics properties that are already part of the LEGO Dimensions brand is the Midway Arcade Level Pack! Not only will you get a Retro Gamer minifig, one sporting a T-Shirt featuring a Lander from Defender but you will also be able to take the G-6155 Spy Hunter out for a spin in the game…and then…you get the Defender arcade cabinet with the bonus of having the chance to play 20 vintage arcade games like Joust, Robotron, Rampage, Super Sprint, and more.

Oh it also appears you get a chance to play a Level designed to look like the characters were dropped into Defender!
