LEGO Dimensions – Play as Slimer, Bane and Ninjago’s Lloyd in the Wave 5 expansion packs
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced the Friday 13th May UK release of their Wave 5 expansion fun packs for LEGO Dimensions. The new fun packs feature three fan favourites; Bane from DC Comics, Slimer from Ghostbusters and Lloyd from LEGO Ninjago.
Purchase of these Wave 5 Fun Packs will allow players to further customise their in-game adventures through new buildable characters, new gadgets with special in-game abilities alongside incredible and rebuildable 3-in-1 vehicles.
All expansion packs are interoperable meaning you could use Slimer in The Simpsons Adventure World or perhaps take Bane to the Dr. Who Adventure world, all of this interchangeably really opens up the amount of gameplay you have in the LEGO Dimensions game.
Additionally any new expansion pack character can open up it’s corresponding brand’s Adventure World so Lloyd would allow access to the LEGO Ninjago Adventure World and Slimer would open up access to the Ghostbusters Adventure World allowing for even more open-world gameplay content.
As a side note for minifigure collectors, purchasing the new Ghostbusters Slimer Fun Pack is without a doubt the cheapest way to acquire the slimer minifigure. You’re only other option is to purchase the LEGO Ghostbusters HQ set and while it is a beautiful set, it’s also rightly expensive.
You can find official descriptions for each of the fun packs plus in-game images of each of the characters below:

DC Comics fans can broaden their LEGO Dimensions gameplay with the buildable Bane Fun Pack.

When he needs backup, players can call in the Slime Shooter and rebuild it into a Slime Exploder and Slime Streamer for upgraded powers in the game.
