Despite being a child of the 1980s, I never watched The Goonies as a kid.
I saw it for the first time when I was 18 or 19, when my uni friends were aghast that I’d never seen it before. It was alright, you know, but I didn’t go mad over it. I haven’t seen it since.
Still, I was fairly excited when Warner Bros. announced that the latest addition to LEGO Dimensions was going to be a Goonies level pack. It finally released this week, containing a Sloth minifig, One-Eyed Willy’s Pirate Ship and a Skeleton Organ. They’re all absolutely fabulous.
Sloth, god love ‘im, is fantastic in his pure ogre-ness. The minifigure’s printed face captures him perfectly (if not slightly cuter, in the way that LEGO minifigures often are). Best, though, is his additional head piece, adding his unnaturally bulbous cranium complete with his little tuft of hair. There are a lot of cool minifigs out there, LEGO Dimensions or otherwise, but Sloth has got to be up there with the best of them.
Next are the Ship and Organ, both intricately detailed – perhaps moreso than I’ve ever seen in a LEGO Dimensions minibuild. The ship comes complete with ingenious sails and cannons, and despite being no longer than four or five centimetres, is perfectly recognisable as a pirate ship. The Skeleton Organ on the other hand, is a fantastic design that was a joy to build. In the way that only LEGO could achieve, random bricks have been used in such a clever way to design the organ, and the finishing touch of the skeleton minifigure is brilliant.

One of my favourite parts of LEGO Dimensions is that you can use the minifigures ANYWHERE. Now if you’ll excuse me, I think it’s time that Sloth goes to get enrolled at Hogwarts.
HEY YOU GUUUUUYYYS!
