Why yes, there is a story to Lego Dimensions, actually

You already know that Lego Dimensions, the upcoming toys-to-life game from Traveller's Tales and Warner Bros. Interactive, will bring together the likes of Batman, Scooby-Doo, Gandalf, The Doctor (Who?), Marty McFly and Chell (plus a whole lot more). But these characters aren't just getting together for a relaxing night of movies and Scrabble, they're joining forces to stop a new villain from causing the Lego dimensions to collide.

Who this cosmic brick-person is and what their ultimate goal may be remains a mystery, but I think considering it's Lego we're talking about here, it's fairly safe to assume he's out to destroy things because he's a Bad Guy. At least the Batmen joke was cute!
