It will cost you nearly $800 to get the full experience of the new LEGO video game

Doctor who lego dimensionsWB Games/LEGO/Tt GamesLEGO’s newest video game ‘LEGO Dimensions,’ allows you to interact with characters like Batman, Wyldstyle (‘The LEGO Movie’), and Doctor Who all in one game.

LEGO debuted its latest video game, “LEGO Dimensions,” on September 27th.

The toy-to-life game, which allows you to play simultaneously with characters from Batman, “Jurassic World,” “The Lord of the Rings,” and more, is going to be a must-have on children’s holiday wish lists.

While it’s undeniably fun, parents are going to have to dig deep for this one.

A starter pack for the video game, which comes with three characters, costs $US100.

While you can beat the game with the characters provided, there are plenty of locked items and areas you can’t complete without other characters.

20 additional expansion packs, ranging in price from $US14.99 – $US29.99, were released at launch. Another 17 will trickle out in the coming months in several waves.

In addition to the starter pack, if you were to purchase everything right now, there’s $US464.79 worth of “LEGO Dimensions” content available in stores. If you buy everything from now until next May, that will bring you to a grand total of $US789.62 before tax.

Here’s everything you’d have to buy to get the most out of “LEGO Dimensions.”

When you purchase the $100 'LEGO Dimensions' starter pack, you begin with three characters: Batman, Wyldstyle ('The LEGO Movie'), and Gandalf ('The Lord of the Rings').
