According to a teaser discovered in a recent tweet, LEGO Dimensions seems to be holding something new in store for the next wave of toys-to-life figures.
An initial teaser was tweeted via Dimensions’ official Twitter, showing Oz’s Wicked Witch alongside Gizmo – the fuzzy Mogwai star of Warner Bros’ Gremlins franchise. You can see a still image taken from the teaser below (via. The Brick Fan).
The teaser was quickly taken down, however, to be replaced with a brief clip showing only the Witch:

Given that the second teaser revolves around the Witch’s insurmountable fear of water, this further suggests that Gremlins is indeed coming to the toys-to-life adventure game, as those familiar with 1984 film will remember that the Mogwai – like the Witch – don’t mix well with water.
NOTE: It is important to remember that, as it has not been officially confirmed by Warner Bros. that Gremlins will appear in the next LEGO Dimensions wave, this news is always subject to change and should be treated strictly as rumour for now.
The second teaser also states that more information will be coming surrounding the next wave of minifigures tomorrow on June 9.
The LEGO Dimensions Twitter account also released a short clip showing a silhouetted minifigure below the question: “Who am I?” Whilst the character’s identity has yet to be officially confirmed, the clip dropped tantalising hints surrounding the Harry Potter universe, suggesting that Tom Riddle will soon join the Dimensions roster.
LEGO Dimensions released in September last year, and has since translated characters from over ten different franchises into plucky brick form. Current Dimensions packs include Back to the Future, Scooby Doo, Jurassic World and Midway Arcade. For all our reviews on the current LEGO Dimensions expansion packs, check out our dedicated page.
