This past weekend, at Disney’s “ultimate fan event,” the D23 Expo, the second batch of figures for Disney Infinity were announced.
Front and center is Disney’s most iconic character, Mickey Mouse. To be specific, they have chosen his look from the Sorcerer’s Apprentice segment of Fantasia. This means it’s likely that the mouse will have access to some magical powers. I just hope I don’t end up with a bunch of possessed mops ruining my toy box creations.
Those who were lucky enough to attend the D23 Expo were able to get the Mickey figure at the show months in advance of its actual release. The figure is already going for around a hundred dollars on ebay (yeah, I wanted to try and get one).
Toy Story will be getting its own playset, making it the 6th one in the game. The set will come bundled with Buzz and Jessie, while Woody will be sold separately. This playset will take place in space and involve the gang trying to help aliens repopulate their planet.
Jack Skellington, Wreck-It Ralph, and everyone’s favorite glitch, Vanellope, have been featured in several trailers for the game, but now we know their arrival will be within the coming months.
Phineas and Agent P., from the Disney Channel series, Phineas and Ferb, will be the first Disney Infinity characters coming to the game from a television series. I’m glad to see Disney shows getting some love early on, but where’s my Kim Possible?
Rounding out the new editions are Rapunzel from Tangled, and those two other characters whom you don’t remember at all. The reason you don’t remember them is because they’re from Disney’s upcoming film, Frozen. The girl on the left is Elsa the snow queen, and to the right of her is the film’s protagonist, Anna.
The second wave of Disney Infinity figures are set to begin releasing in October and continue through part of 2014, while the game itself launches this Sunday.
