Re: Disney Infinity - Questions

ca$h cow ... how soon till they release vinylmation versions of the figs

by the way, the family got back from WDW 2 weeks ago and the only advertising I saw for this was in the busses shuttling us back and forth

Looks like the wife came back from TRU with the starter pack, free fig (Mike W), Cars playset, 2 disc packs, and the previously mentioned protection plan .... guess the damage/hurt could have been worse but I know it's coming based on all the Monster High crap we have taking up our living space

Mucho dinero! However, I took advantage of every sale, discount, promotion and coupon I could. I figured that it was best to grab these while they were half price, buy one get one free or 20% off (starter set). I would have been super pissed had I bought those power disc packs for 5 bucks apiece rather than 2 for 6 seeing that I ended up with 3 repeats out of 12 total.

Re: Disney Infinity - Questions

I tried to find a sealed box of game discs but Target and TRU put them all out. I ended up with the starter set, crystal lightning mcqueen, tru exclusive power disc pack, cars set and 3 pack villains. I need to pick up the lone ranger and the other 3 pack from BB tomorrow. I am expecting the other 4 single figures from MS.

We haven't opened anything yet as we were at the zoo all day.

Re: Disney Infinity - Questions

The game is somewhat fun to play as we have been playing the Monsters University. However, I am disappointed that the voice they have for Sully sound nothing like Sully and neither does Jack Sparrow. At least find someone that sounds similar to the original voice. The guy working as Jack Sparrow at Disney World Magic Kingdom sounds better than the person they selected to do the voice in the game.

Re: Disney Infinity - Questions

If this game had been basically a clone of Skylanders, I would have jumped all over it. Skylanders + Disney characters = awesome.

However, I was looking forward to playing, say, Sully AND Jack Sparrow in a level fighting Syndrome (or whoever). But as I'm seeing it, Sully (and other monsters) play ONLY in the Monsters Inc. levels, Jack Sparrow (and other pirates) play ONLY in the Pirates levels, and so on.

The only time you can mix the characters is in the Toy Box, but that also requires you building your own levels/games/obstacles? Forget that.

I was seriously looking forward to Thor and Mickey Mouse teaming up to defeat a Darth Vader on a Star Wars level. How awesome would that have been?

It makes the figures seem...unnecessary (which, I realize they are, as are the Skylanders). But there's this neat element to Skylanders where you get to "tag in" as needed. This just seems like "Here's the Pirates level; go buy Davy Jones if you want to play as him." It seems like the Toy Story 3 game...with borderline useless toys.

I'm not threadcrapping here; I was ready to drop some serious coin on this for me and my girls (especially since there are apparently princesses coming). Even had it preordered. But now I feel like I've dodged a bullet.

This isnt correct. I was shown at the store that any character can play on any level unless its a car and that can only play on certain levels. My son was playing a level with The lone ranger and tonto and then I removed tonto and tossed in Mike from mosters and he played fine..then tossed on sully etc.

the rep then stated you can play any person on any board. Hope this helps and I and they werent wrong

Re: Disney Infinity - Questions

There are some strange and unintentionally funny collision issues in this game. There sure are more bugs than one would expect from such a highly promoted release as this one. We are still having quite a bit of fun with it.

I would guess you'll see a new version of the game before you would see all those properties/characters out at the same time

I'm sure you will be tempted (for them) when that line comes out

Re: Disney Infinity - Questions

In game levels can only be played with characters from that universe. All the characters can be played in toy box mode.

No problem! I wish this were not true but I also understand at least somewhat from a logistical point of view. However, they could have at least made a free roam in every level you own that would allow you to do certain things with whichever character that you own and choose to play with.
