I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again; aside from its innovative toy-to-life technology, one of my favorite things that LEGO Dimensions brings to the table is its ability to integrate 14 diverse franchises in a way that’s not only creative, but downright hilarious. Though it’s true that TT Games’ LEGO titles have never been lacking in the comedy department, throwing the likes of Gandalf, Batman, Scooby Doo, Marty McFly, and Homer Simpson into the same mixed multiverse took their oft clever dialogue to another level.
Now, despite knowing and appreciating the variety of characters involved, something that never occurred to me is the fact that the cast actually includes a ton of doctors. There’s Ghostbusters’ Dr. Venkman, who holds a PhD in both Parapsychology and Psychology; Doc Brown, the famous creator of the DeLorean Time Machine in Back to the Future; Doctor Who’s Time Lord, who’s simply referred to as “the Doctor”; and even the DC Comics universe’s Harley Quinn, who was known as Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel, M.D. before she became a villain.
As each doc now enjoys his or her own add-on content pack (the Ghostbusters Level Pack and DC Comics Pack, featuring Harley, just released last week) the folks behind Dimensions have released a fun trailer that shows what happens when worlds collide. In it, we see Peter Venkman (in the Ecto-1),Doc Brown (in the DeLorean), and The Doctor (in the Tardis) pull up to an intersection in their vehicles—which are all currently available in game, and as mini figs with their respective DLC packs—and fight for the right of way.
Watch the hilarious scenario play out in the video at the top of the page.
