“Not in Kansas Anymore”
Wyldstyle, Batman, and Gandalf exit the vortex after repairing and entering the Gateway and find themselves in a very strange world (Figure 3.1). “It’s so...colorful!” gripes Batman.
Figure 3.1 The trio land in a strange world with a yellow brick road.
When the trio lands on the Yellow Brick Road, they can travel in two directions: either forward (toward the big green castle in the distance) or backward (away from the castle). If the characters choose to go back, they will encounter a large silver fence (Figure 3.2). Every character has special abilities (Batman has the Stealth ability, for example, while Gandalf does not) and only characters that have Silver Blowup ability can destroy Silver objects such as this wall. (The Wicked Witch of the West minifig is sold separately and has the ability to destroy Silver objects.)
Figure 3.2 A silver fence blocks Batman, Gandalf, and Wyldstyle.
Figure 3.3 After destroying the silver gate, you can visit Munchkin Town.
Discovering one path blocked by a silver fence, the group must move forward and find a wagon blocking the way forward on the Yellow Brick Road (Figure 3.4).
Figure 3.4 There must be a solution for getting around this wagon.
Look carefully at the wagons here—the one that’s blocking the Yellow Brick Road and the one that’s parked on the grass—and you will spot some glowing LEGO pieces in barrels. Approach the wagon that’s parked in the grass and press X to open a barrel and grab the studs. To the left of the wagon blocking the path is a stack of bricks with a barrel at the top. The barrel has some useful LEGO pieces inside. Hit it with X and then press B to build something out of all those bouncing LEGO pieces. An orange handle appears on the side of the wagon that’s blocking the road.
Use Batman’s Grapple ability to pull on the orange handle until the wagon is moved off the road.
Behind the wagon are purple poppies. Touching or jumping into the purple poppies puts a character to sleep. If you fall asleep, tap B repeatedly to wake up. You can destroy the poppies by driving over them with the Batmobile. Enter the Batmobile by pressing Y and drive through the poppies until they are destroyed. Then proceed on the Yellow Brick Road.
