LEGO Dimensions definitely turned out to be an exciting game, and I believe it will continue to do so as LEGO is adding more expansion packs to unlock new features. As we have discussed previously (see links at the end of this post), both the LEGO Dimension Starter Pack and the LEGO Dimensions add-on packs come with physical LEGO sets. This is a great way to blend real life and virtual play. However one frustration LEGO fans have been facing is that the expansion packs do not contain building instructions for the small LEGO models. Of course there are instructions within the game itself, but if you are away from your gaming device, or if you are a collector who is only interested in the sets and not the game, you are stuck with a handful of elements you didn’t know how to put together.
LEGO fans started sharing building instructions on various social media sites, so those who didn’t have access to the instructions from the game could still build the models contained in the expansion packs. LEGO recently remedied this situation by adding links to the instructions from the main LEGO Dimensions website, but it is a bit difficult to locate them. So here are the steps you need to take to how to find them:
Go to the official LEGO Dimensions website (just click on the link) and select Products from the tabs on top of the page. Here choose the LEGO Dimensions set you would like to get the instructions for. Once the product page is open, you will see three blue icons below the image of the set. The first one is to buy the set, the second is to add it to your wish-list, and the third is to get the building instructions for the set.
Once you click on the blue icon for the building instructions, you will be taken to the LEGO Customer Service page where the instructions for the particular set you were interested in is already pulled up. Download the PDF instructions from here. Alternately, you can go the LEGO Customer Service page directly, but in this case you will have to type in the set number yourself to find the instructions. Please note that you will usually find several PDF instructions for each set, because LEGO Dimensions packs come with a number of alternate models. So you can download just the model you are interested in, or all of alternate models as well.
Although getting the instructions online is not the best solution as you still have to be at your computer to download them, but at least you don’t need to have access to the game to get them. Hopefully in future LEGO Dimensions packs instructions will be included with the sets, but if not, you can always get them this way.
On another note, I also thought to mention that now that we are getting close to the holidays, several retailers are offering special prices on the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack and the LEGO Dimensions add-on packs. Amazon in particular has been offering discounts on all gaming platform versions of the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, and Target stores have been having a buy-two-get-one-free on the add-on packs. So it is a good idea to keep an eye on these and other retailers.
Amazon.com also got a really helpful dedicated section just for LEGO Dimensions that guides you through the process of starting with the game and finding all the packs that you want. All the currently available LEGO Dimensions packs are listed in this section, and you can also pre-order some of the future packs. Here is the direct link where you can find everything: LEGO DIMENSIONS SHOP ON AMAZON
And if you like to shop directly from LEGO to support the company and to collect VIP Points, the LEGO Dimensions Starter Packs and first and second wave of LEGO Dimensions add-on packs are now available here: LEGO DIMENSIONS AT THE ONLINE LEGO SHOP
