Add that to the "List of Minifigs That You Will Never Own", right next to the George Lucas minifigure.

The Kwik-E-Mart looks like it'll be an interesting set piece for a battleground.

I am reminded of the introductory adventure they printed up for Shadowrun 3rd ed tabletop rpg. It took place in a Stuffer Shack. Fairly well written piece, even though I hate printed adventures and modules and whatnot. I still remember some of the descriptions. I dropped it in several adventures I ran. Gunfights in convenience stores are awesome. The chip bags exploding, the slushie machine spraying cherry icee all over the place. Good times. Also reminds me by extension of Gross Pointe Blank, which was a key inspiration for many of those fight scenes.

What is Dimensions about?

Basically the premise of the Lego movie. You get a Starter Pack that includes Batman, Lego Movie's Wildstyle, and Lord of the Ring's Gandalf, and then you can play as digital versions of those characters in a combined videogame world. You can also buy expansion packs for odd things like Lego Elves, Ninjago, or Wizard of Oz, with vehicles and such. It's pretty much the same idea as Disney Infinity and Skylanders.

Too bad you can't create a tank and load it into the game...
