After four months of not having to buy anything, Lego Dimensions players suddenly have a whole new wave of friends to add to their collection. The new Ghostbusters, Adventure Time, Mission Impossible, The A-Team and Harry Potter make their Dimensions debut today.

The 2016 Ghostbusters movie scores the game’s first Story Pack, a $49.99 box that’s basically the entire movie in Lego game form. Story Packs come with their own buildable Lego Dimensions base, replacing the original that came with last year’s Starter Pack.

As with the previous releases, each new property coming to Lego Dimensions also gets its own free-roaming adventure level. This year those levels also come with Battle Arenas, special areas where up to four local players can participate in games of Capture the Flag, Objective, Base Bash, and Tick, Tag, Boom! Each property’s Battle Arena features unique traps and powers—basically each new property gets its own multiplayer map.

So that’s $50 out of the way. At the $29.99 level we’ve got Level Packs for Adventure Time and Mission Impossible. These packs come with a character Finn and Ethan Hunt) and two accessories, while in game they unlock both the free-roaming adventure level and a themed story mission.

Then we’ve got the $24.99 Team Packs, featuring two characters and two accessories each. There are two of these in wave seven, Harry Potter featuring Harry and Voldemort (some team) and Adventure Time with Jake and Lumpy Space Princess. As with any minifigs from new properties, these also unlock the adventure levels and Battle Arenas.

And finally we’ve got one $11.99 Fun Pack this time around, featuring B.A. Baracus and the A-Team van. The van can be rebuilt into a plane, which should be a problem for him.

The cashier at Target wouldn’t break street date and sell me the Mr. T fun pack yesterday. She made a lifetime enemy let me tell you.

Just to note, Target is doing BOGO on the fun packs this week if anyone is interested!
