LEGO Dimensions Teen Titans Go! Team Pack & Fun Pack

Teen Titans Go! is one of Cartoon Network’s most popular shows right now.  It has to be because nearly every time I turn on the TV, that show is on.  I’ve never been a big fan of Teen Titans, both the original cartoon and this new one, but I’m sure the new one is popular with kids thanks to its irreverent humor.  And now you can relive the adventures of the wacky super hero teens with the Teen Titans Go! Team Pack and Fun Pack for LEGO Dimensions.  It’s available for nearly all current game consoles, but reviewed on Wii U here.

LEGO Dimensions is essentially like Skylanders, except you build and play with LEGOs instead.  I even wrote a big article about it a while back that you can read.   I’ve been lucky enough to be able to review most of the LEGO Dimensions packs, as WB Games has sent them to me for review purposes, including these, which I’m very thankful for. The Teen Titans Go! Team Pack comes with two playable characters and two vehicles.  The game gives you instructions on how to put together the vehicles once the characters are placed on the pedestal.  The Team Pack comes with Beast Boy and Raven, and two vehicles: the T-Car and Raven’s Spellbook.  Here’s a bigger shot of the package:

When you play as Beast Boy, his attacks change his limbs into various animals, like bat wings, tentacles, and he can even charge as a dog.  He can also fly by turning into a bird, and when he swims, he turns into a shark.  He can also throw his banana like a boomerang.  Raven can fly, too, but she can also fire dark blasts of energy.  The T-Car is just a regular vehicle, but if you hold down a button, it can jump.  When my brother and I were building these, we thought the T on the front of the car looked more like Squidward’s nose.  Raven’s Spellbook also acts like a vehicle in the game, as you can sit on it and ride around.  While riding on the book, you can hold down a button to make a cute little pony come out and you can control it remotely.  Not sure what that’s all about, but I imagine it’s a reference to the cartoon show that I don’t watch.  One neat thing about the actual spellbook you build is that it has a hinge so you can open and close it.  Although it can’t do that with the lightning bolt sticking out of it.  Like other LEGO Dimensions vehicles, you can spend studs to rebuild and upgrade them into new things.  Here’s a picture of the figures all built and out of the box.

The Fun Pack is sold separately and includes Starfire and the Titan Robot.  Not sure if they’ll make a Robin or Cyborg set for Teen Titans Go!  There is already a Robin included in the LEGO Batman Movie set, and there was a DC Comics set with Cyborg, but I don’t know if they’ll work with the Teen Titans Go stuff or not.  Anyway, here’s a shot of the Fun Pack box.

Starfire can also fly and shoot out blasts of energy, but she can also fire a charged laser as well.  You can ride on the Titan Robot and it can hover, but not fly.  But it can shoot out a laser.  Between the robot and the spellbook, the Teen Titans Go sets probably feature some of the tallest figures in the game.  Here are the Fun Pack bunch all built and out of the box.

You unlock a few things with the Team Pack and Fun Pack.  One new thing you get is a full length episode of Teen Titans Go!, which explains how the crew got into the LEGO world in the first place.  Half of it is animated like the show and the other half is CG like the LEGO cartoons.  It’s really just there to promote the new packs, but it’s still cute and I’m sure fans will love it.  You also unlock a new Adventure World and Battle Arena.  I like it when LEGO Dimensions does a cartoon world because they make everything in it cel-shaded with bright colors, so it really looks like the show.  You’ll explore the Titans’ T-shaped tower, all around Jump City, and a few other locations I don’t know because I don’t watch the cartoon.  Like other adventure hub worlds, you can spend studs to build structures and take on missions and requests.  It’ll be a treat for Teen Titans Go! fans for sure.

Kid Factor:

Kids love superheroes and Teen Titans Go!, so they’ll probably like this, too.  LEGO Dimensions is rated E-10 with ESRB descriptors of Cartoon Violence and Crude Humor. If you’re OK with your kids watching the show, they’ll definitely be OK with this game, too.  While I would recommend most LEGO games to all ages, I think LEGO Dimensions is best for older kids.  One, the things you build are pretty complicated sometimes, so they would need to be experienced LEGO handlers.  And like other LEGO toys, the sets are pretty expensive so kids would need to know how to keep up with and take care of their toys, as the game is useless without them.  And plus using the pedestal is not very intuitive.  Also don’t forget the whole choking hazard thing with small LEGOs!
