LEGO Dimensions E.T. Fun Pack Reveiw

LEGO Dimensions is an odd, yet wonderful mash up of licences compiled into one video game. One of the more recent additions to the game is the Steven Spielberg classic E.T. The Extra Terrestrial. I was super excited when I learned that E.T. was going to be represented in Minifigure form. Anyways, let's dive into the reveiw.

The set comes with one Minifigure, and the Phone Home build. The set has a total of 42 pieces.

The E.T. Minifigure is amazing. The designers did a fantastic job capturing the look of E.T. I do think the Minifigure form of E.T. is more visually appealing than the character in the movie. The detail on the torso is rather simple, but it does the trick. The head is a new mold which was created specifically for this character. The head is well detailed and fits the style of the figure well. The expression on E.T.'s face is perfect. My only gripe is that there are holes underneath E.T.'s jaw. E.T. comes with a flower and I think it is quite nice for its size.

E.T. comes with an exclusive toy tag. The design depicts the famous scene from the movie where E.T. makes a bicycle fly.

The Phone Home is kinda meh. It is a nice design for a LEGO phone, but has no practical applications. It isn't even accurate to the movie.  But, for the parts included, it was well made.

The Phone Home can be rebuilt into a Mobile Uplink and a Super-Charged Satellite.

The E. T. in game can use Telekinesis and Illumination. He also uses Stealth and Fix-it, and those are both quite useful abilities. He can pretty much be used as a replacement for Gandalf. The Phone Home can use Sonar Smash, and can be quite useful. It can also summon Elliot on his BMX bike. When upgraded, E.T. can summon his ship. The Phone Home can eventually blow up silver LEGO in game.

The E.T. Adventure world is not as exciting as I had hoped it would be. The majority of the area is a bland 80's neighborhood. You can enter E.T.'s ship and mess around in there, but it requires you to have other characters to complete the tasks inside. I wasn't able to access Elliot's house because it required another character to enter it. I was disappointed that I wasn't able to do more in the world. However, the Battle Arena was less disappointing. My brother and I played in the arena for a while and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

I think this is a pretty great set. I love the E.T. figure and he is quite useful in game. I have pretty much replaced Gandalf with him. The Phone Home not the greatest gadget, but it does have the useful Sonar Smash ability. The in-game levels are kinda a mixed bag, but the Battle Arena is totally worth it.

That's it for now, thanks for reading!
