Merch Review : Disney Infinity

For anyone who hasn’t heard of Disney Infinity, it’s concept is very similar to Skylanders. To play as a certain character, you have to buy it individually from the game at the store, and they run about $14.00. You put the character’s toy on the platform and then play as them. But, so far, that’s been really my only problem with the game. It’s a pretty solid game, featuring all of our heroes from both sides of the Force.

The starter edition includes the game, the platform that you put characters on, Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano, and the toy set Twilight of the Republic. There are, in total, 19 playable Star Wars characters. Of course, there are other toy sets besides Star Wars, including Inside Out, the Incredibles, Monsters University, Marvel, and a lot of classic fairy tale characters. Here are all 19 playable Star Wars characters. They are all playable in all three Star Wars toy sets, Twilight of the Republic, Rise Against the Empire, and The Force Awakens.

  • Anakin Skywalker
  • Ahsoka Tano
  • Yoda
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Darth Maul
  • Luke Skywalker
  • Princess Leia
  • Han Solo
  • Chewbacca
  • Darth Vader
  • Boba Fett
  • Finn
  • Rey
  • Poe Dameron
  • Kylo Ren
  • Kanan Jarrus
  • Ezra Bridger
  • Sabine Wren
  • Zeb Orrelios

One of my problems with the game is that, Boba Fett isn’t available to buy yet unless you buy off of eBay for four times the price of a normal figure. However, while there is no official date, Disney says his release is scheduled in “early 2016”, so hopefully we’ll be seeing him hit store shelves soon. Another one of my problems is that Star Wars Rebels doesn’t have its own toy set. However, despite these problems, Disney Infinity is a really solid game. Once your done playing through the toy sets, you can play with all the “toys” you unlocked in the Toy Box, a free-building mode where you can build anything from the Death Star to an Ewok Village.

If you think the game is childish, there’s a lot more this game offers than just messing around and building. In the Toy Box, there is a huge programming feature that I find is very elaborate and hard to work.You can make enemies friendly, build whole new levels and play other people’s Toy Boxes. There are vehicles that you can unlock, you can race, there is a lot offered.

Disney Infinity also offers Power-Discs, which are discs that you either put under your character or in the toy set slot on the platform. There are 12 Star Wars Power-Discs and each comes in a pack of 4 running about $10.00 and they have one pack for each toy set. The Star Wars Power-Discs include

  • Mace Windu Team-Up
  • General Grievous’ Wheel Bike
  • Skies of Felucia
  • Forests of Felucia
  • Luke’s Pilot Costume
  • Leia’s Boushh Costume
  • Y-Wing Fighter
  • Boba Fett’s Slave-1
  • Finn’s Stormtrooper Costume
  • Poe Dameron’s Flight Jacket Costume
  • Resistance Tactical Strike
  • Quad-Jumper

The Mace Windu Team-Up disc summons Mace Windu to fight at your side, all of the vehicle Power-Disc’s summon that vehicle, Skies of Felucia turn your Toy-Box’s skies to look like Felucia, while Forests of Felucia change the texure of the Toy Box itself, all the costumes work on that character alone and change his/her’s looks, and the Resistance Tactical Strike disc calls down a strike a few meters in front of your character.

Overall, my friends and I have been enjoying the game immensely. We’ve built Ewok Villages, remnants of the Death Star, and Imperial Outposts. I’d give the game 4/5 stars because you have to buy every character and story line, but its well worth it.

  1. Interesting that this now includes vehicles. I’m hoping that they’ll release the Millennium Falcon. (With the classic dish, of course.)

    The game looks like fun, though.

    1. Actually, the Millennium Falcon is already offered. Along with The Ghost from Rebels, Darth Vader’s TIE Fighte, a normal TIE Fighter, a TIE Interceptor, a First Order TIE Fighter, a First Order Special Force’s TIE Fighter, Luke’s X-Wing, a normal X-Wing, Poe’s X-Wing, the list goes on…
