Could Disney Be Providing Clues to the Next Infinity Figures!?

If you follow Disney Infinity news, you may have heard that we should expect quite a few more DI 3.0 figures to come out. We know there will be a couple of figures for Zootopia, and Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War is expected to give us a few figures. And with the Star Wars franchise experiencing a revival with The Force Awakens we can expect more Star Wars figures as well. When I was adding the codes for my newest figures on infinity.disney.com I noticed the blank tiles on the character screen might be strategically placed. I thought we might take a look at some of my guesses to see who might be behind those empty tiles. These are my thoughts (and hopes) for the new figures. Don’t be afraid to share your own. 

Star Wars

Ok, first off you can see my progress on figure purchases. I just started buying figures this past month. As my last entry said, I just added Luke, Leia, and Ezra. So lets look at those empty tiles. I am going to start on the top left and work my way down and to the right. Our first empty tile lies between Ahsoka and Yoda, in the middle of the Twilight of the Republic figures. Fan favorite General Grievous could fit here or a Republic Clone Trooper. Could this be CloneCaptain Rex? What do you guys think?

Our next empty tile is found in the middle of the Star Wars Rebels figures. Although there have been some really cool villains that could take this spot, I am hoping it’s location means we will get a Hera figure. And I have hope that the next five tiles might be Rebels characters as well… But I’m stumped on who they could be. Add your guesses to the Comments section.

Marvel

There are still plenty of Marvel figures that I want to get, and there appear to be three new ones on the way. Our first empty tile lies between Ironman and the Hulk. I’m guessing Ant-Man here. We’ve seen concept art for Ant-Man so this isn’t a stretch. 

The next two fall in the midst of the Guardians of the Galaxy… Honestly, I think this placement kills my theory. We’ve seen images of Black Panther and Vision figures, and I whole-heartedly expect these to be the next Marvel figures. If these two tiles are for more Guardians of the Galaxy figures (or Cosmic figures) I would expect to see Captain Marvel and Dr. Strange (If the theory connecting Dr. Strange to the Infinity Stones pans out).

Disney (Originals)

I originally became excited about Disney Infinity when 2.0 released and Marvel characters were revealed. When 3.0’s Star Wars theme was revealed I wished I had a console to play on. But after buying the game, I have mostly played with Disney characters. In fact, I really need to get to leveling up my Marvel characters…

Our first empty tile is just after Spot (from the new Good Dinosaur movie) and before the Tron figures. This tile is a mystery to me, what do you think?

The next tile is beside Tinker Bell, and we have heard that Peter Pan is coming. This figure has me very excited. Peter Pan was one of the first Disney classic movies that I exposed my girls to, and they loved it. When we visited Disney World this past year, Peter was on of their favorite characters to meet. I cannot wait to watch their excitement when they add Pan to our collection.

The next tile has me SUPER excited. My favorite recent Disney movie was Tangled, and if this is a Flynn Rider figure I will be at the store the day of release to get it. I am a huge Chuck fan (NBC show that ran from 2007-2012) and I’ll support just about anything Zachary Levi is involved in. Flynn Rider is a household favorite of ours, and I need a figure for him.

Next we get another empty tile that lies between Jack Skellington and the Toy Story figures. I know DI fans want an Emperor Zurg figure. I think it is possible with the placement of this tile. But… it could also be Rex, and honestly I hope it is Rex. What do you think? Rex or Zurg? Comment at the bottom.

The next empty tiles fall at the end of the Incredibles family but before Syndrome. I’m guessing Frozone, and I want this figure!

The last three come after Mickey Mouse and one of them is Darkwing Duck. And I am guessing the next two represent the Zootopia figures. 

Those are my guesses, what are yours?

GameStop Deal

If you are looking for a deal on 3.0 figures, Power Discs, and Play Sets GameStop has a deal for you. All 3.0 figures are $9.99, Power Discs are $4.99, and Play Sets are $29.99. 

I scored Rise Against the Empire, Inside Out, Mulan, and Ezra today. 

I just started the Twilight of the Republic Play Set and I cannot wait to start the game inspired by the original trilogy. As far as gameplay, the Star Wars games are feeling very different from my other DI experiences. And the figures are amazing. 
My daughters, wife, and I sat down this evening to play the Inside Out Play Set and was blown away by the innovation of the gameplay. Inside Out plays very differently from the other Play Sets and Toy Boxes that I have played. We joy played the first level before bed. We took turns trying to collect the most balloons as quickly as possible. It was a lot of fun. 

My wife started playing DI this morning. She is enjoying farming on my Infinirama Farm (which is working out great for my Sidekicks and I). She mentioned this morning that she would like to play with Mulan. So this 3.0 figure quickly jumped to the top of my list of must haves. She has only been playing with her on the farm so far, but I think this figure will become a go-to for combat. 

I was recently introduced to the Disney XD show Star Wars: Rebels, and I love it. The characters have each become franchise favorites of mine. I’ve wanted to pick up Ezra the moment I saw it. The detail on these Star Wars figures is amazing, and this figure looks great. I tried him in a community Toy Box and he was very fun. 

More to Come on Infinirama

The big day has come and gone, and your’s truly has been having a blast playing Disney Infinity for a few days now.  We purchased the Disney Infinity Starter pack for the Apple TV, and I have finally had an opportunity to play around with the full version of the game. I received my USB type C cable in the mail today and hope to begin recording some gameplay soon. 

News is kind of scarce right now on the DI front, but I hope to share some of my experiencing within the game with you soon. 

 

Welcome to infinirama!

Well, it happened. I very quickly became obsessed with Disney Infinity, and I don’t even own it yet… well, not the full version anyway. I’ve wanted to play Disney Infinity forever (or at least ever since it came out in 2013), but I haven’t owned current generation console. I thought about buying a PS4 just to play this game, but $400 will buy a lot of food. And my family likes to eat. I had tried downloading the iOS apps a couple of times, but had trouble with the games lagging and crashing.

Anyway, a coupleĀ of months ago at the Apple Keynote it was revealed that a full version of Disney Infinity 3.o would be available on the Apple TV. My wife and I had already decided to purchase the Apple TV before I realized that it was finally my opportunity to play. And in November it was revealed that the Nimbus SteelSeries Controller would be included in the DI 3.0 Starter Pack for Apple TV!

I ordered the Starter Pack as soon as it became available, and I cannot wait to begin Disney’s Adventure on my new Apple TV. A couple of weeks ago I caught wind that Best Buy and ToysRus were competing with one another before Black Friday and I scored a box full of new figures for like $3 each!

I am a huge fan of Marvel’s cinematic universe. I grew up reading Marvel Comics. So I grabbed all of the Avengers (except Hawkeye… Sorry Jeremy Renner, I’m just not sure what he will bring to my squad. And I really needed that Elsa figure for my eldest daughter. You understand, right?) and many of my girls favorites.

I have since been playing 3.0 on my iPad. Disney has fixed most of the problems with the app, but I have completely given up on building in the Toy Box. Hopefully with my Nimbus controller and the Apple TV I can put out some sweet Toy Box Games later.

I’ve also started getting involved on Disney Interactive Studios‘ website and message board forum. But it takes a long time to get anything posted because they moderate every post. If you are a Disney Infinity fan I hope infinirama.wordpresss.com might become a regular stop for you, and be on the lookout as content changes as I play more. I want to do some character bios, feature some Toy Box games, and keep readers up to date on current DI news.

So please come back, and feel free to add comments below. I’d love to know what you might like to see from a Disney Infinity fan site.

Until next time.
