Three new expansion packs are now available for LEGO Dimensions, including tie-ins to the recently released film The LEGO Batman Movie.

The LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack lets you replay the complete movie over six levels. The pack comes with Robin and Batgirl minifigures as well as a buildable Batwing and Bat Computer. The Batwing is a 3-in-1 figure that can be rebuilt into The Black Thunder and Bat-Tank.

The Movie Story pack doesn’t come with Batman since Batman came with the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack. When placing Batman in the Movie Story Pack levels, he transforms into the Movie version of Batman. Batgirl has her batarang, glide, and stealth abilities as well as a Detective Mode for puzzles. Robin can access vents and transform into Nightwing for better fighting.

A second, smaller LEGO Batman movie tie-in was also released for LEGO Dimensions: Excalibur Batman. This is a Fun Pack that comes with a Batman minifigure and a 3-in-1 Bionic Steed that can turn into a Bat-Raptor and Ultrabat. Batman, Robin and Batgirl provide access to the new The LEGO Batman Movie Adventure World and Battle Arena. The Battle Arena provides competitive local battles for up to four players.

The third expansion pack is wholly unrelated to The LEGO Batman Movie. It’s Knight Rider, the 80’s TV show starring David Hasselhoff and his talking car. The Fun Pack includes the Michael Knight minifigure and the 3-in-1 K.I.T.T., who can transform into a jet and an armored semi-truck. Michael can dodge, dash and use his wrist watch to see through walls. He also provides access to a new Knight Rider Adventure World and Battle Arena.

LEGO Dimensions is a toy-to-life franchise from WB Games based on the LEGO toys. It launched in 2015 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Wii U. Numerous licensed expansion packs have released, including Ghostbusters, Harry Potter, and Back to the Future.
