Are these not the most amazing bookmarks ever? I seriously can’t stop looking at them!
They are even more beautiful in person, they are made of polymer clay and the bookmark part is thin metal instead of cardboard making the whole thing really sturdy.

Olena has so many different designs, I want them all! lol
You can find these and many other different designs in her shop here:

We were super curious if you could make a movie that had the kind of character that Dorothy is in The Wizard of Oz.  The Wizard of Oz was kind of a movie we were thinking about when we started thinking about Jupiter.  We loved The Wizard of Oz and there aren’t movies like The Wizard of Oz right now. We were like, “Could you take a character like Dorothy who’s a female and who goes on this journey and she doesn’t have to beat people up?  She doesn’t have to fight constantly or use weapons and kung fu in order to be the hero.  Can she just use empathy?”  That was sort of against the grain of what the culture expects or what the culture wants right now.

LEGO Dimensions Coming September 27th

LEGO amazes once more with its unique ability to bring worlds together. Not only will LEGO Dimensions merge physical and digital play experiences, but also IPs of Lord of the Rings, Batman, Back to the Future, The Wizard of Oz and LEGO’s own The LEGO Movie and Ninjago.

Joel McHale seems just as stunned as me:

Here is the press release:

For the first time in any LEGO videogame, characters from iconic entertainment franchises join forces and battle in worlds outside of their own. In addition to the game, the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack will include the LEGO Toy Pad, which allows players to transport special LEGO minifigures and other LEGO objects into the game, bricks to build the LEGO Gateway, three LEGO Minifigures, including LEGO BatmanTM from DC Comics, LEGO Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings and Wyldstyle from The LEGO Movie, plus the LEGO BatmobileTM.
In addition to the three minifigure heroes used to start the experience, LEGO Dimensions will allow gamers to customize their experience with additional expansion packs. Highly collectible Level Packs, Team Packs and Fun Packs will provide new buildable characters, vehicles, tools and gadgets, as well as compelling game content with new mission-based levels and unique in-game abilities. All expansion packs will feature well-known properties and provide gamers the opportunity to use everything interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game – with no limitations.
A small sample of packs available in 2015 include the Back to the Future Level Pack with a LEGO Marty McFly minifigure, a LEGO Ninjago Team Pack with Kai and Cole minifigures, three Ninjago Fun Packs with Jay, Nya and Zane minifigures, two DC Comics Fun Packs with Wonder Woman and Cyborg minifigures, three The Lord of the Rings Fun Packs with LEGO Gollum, LEGO Gimli and LEGO Legolas minifigures, four The LEGO Movie Fun packs with Emmet, Bad Cop, Benny and Unikitty characters, and a The Wizard of Oz Fun Pack with a LEGO Wicked Witch of the West minifigure. Additional packs to round out the 2015 assortment will be announced in the months leading to launch. Further waves of expansion packs will be released regularly following the launch of the game and into 2016.
