    I love to hear folks discovering this game for the first time. It's by no means perfect but you can tell a lot of love and care was put into it. It's a natural progression from the Toy Box mode of the Toy Story 3 game and it builds a nice foundation that 2.0 is going to apparently expand off of.

    As I've said before, it scratches all my itches at once: Toys, Videogames, and Disney.

    One tip though, UnbreakableVow: WAIT FOR SALES. Power Discs, Single Figures, and even the Playsets go on sale constantly. Most often at Toys R Us, but Target and Best Buy also puts Disney Infinity merch on sale often. Don't pay full MSRP for anything.

    I do hope they improve Toy Box in 2.0 though. I personally find it annoying to use because the UI is so god-awful and laggy/slow.

    As I head down this road, I am lucky to have a good friend that runs a game store

    He gave me the starter set for $60, and is selling me the figures at $8 a pop

    By the way, not sure if it's been mentioned before...

    There is a PC-based client for Disney Infinity. When you buy a figure (or a figure pack) it comes with a little card with a code. Register that code at the Disney Infinity site with your account, and you unlock the figure into your digital toy box.

    I think this is the #1 and probably only reason the game died almost immediately for me. That and not being able to do certain things when creating (keeping it to a 2D side scrolling plane is on the top of that list).

    I'd love to get something going with people from here at some point. That was my initial plan, but I just lost interest fast. If anything, this is on my list of things I am going to stream at some point.

    The game in general just doesn't run at a great clip, it's pretty laggy

    I am sure the PS4/Xbox One versions of 2.0 will improve them greatly in this regard

    Maleficient (and Merida) was spotted in the 2.0 reveal trailer, so it's not a terribly big surprise.

    DI 2.0 will be playable at E3, at least on PS4 so far. I hope we get some good feedback about the editor being smoothed out. Even the PC editor is sluggish.= for 1.0.

    So in addition to the Target venom leak, Best Buy's 6/15 Ad confirms Nick Fury, The Ultimate Spider-Man Playset and... Iron Fist?! ... I'm just going to assume thats a typo and it's the already confirmed Iron Man.

    Apparently Iron Fist is a thing:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Fist_(comics)

    First I've ever heard of him :P You are probably right though that they meant Iron Man. Though seriously, what idiot screws up Iron Man?

    Oh, and P.S. to anyone still buying these figures, KMart has the Phineas and Ferb 2 pack on sale for a ridiculously low $13:
    http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_018W007026037001P

    Might as well be buy one get one free :P That set is normally $30.

    Despite not being in a movie (yet), Iron Fist is a fairly popular and long-running Marvel character and it's very likely he would be in this game

    So I am pretty sure Sony just announced that Disney Infinity 2.0 is launching first on PS4. It sounds like the Hulk might be exclusive to the PS4 starter set as well. It was pretty quick so I'll hold out for more details.

    So man, I'm really starting to have some second thoughts about this entire Disney Infinity thing.

    Namely, it can be fucking expensive. I didn't buy ANYTHING at full MSRP, and I still shudder to think of how much money I dropped on the original game...and 2.0 is going to be even more expensive due to more figures and more discs.

    So I'm down to two choices here. Either I can sell off all my 1.0 stuff, either as a set or individually, and dust off my hands of the thing, and just bail on Disney Infinity completely...

    ...or I'll sell off most of my 1.0 stuff, keeping my favorites, and just dabble a bit into 2.0.

    I wonder if secondhand figures even maintain their value decently.

    Johnny V cleared up the Hulk thing a bit on his Twitter account. The PS4 version of 2.0 will come in a special "Collectors Edition" and will launch early. The collectors edition will include all 6 avengers figures including the Hulk, which will not be available anywhere else at launch, but WILL be available on other platforms at a later date.

    So just timed exclusivity, like they did with certain figures/retailers with 1.0

    I hear you man, I quickly decided after the first wave that I didn't care to collect all the discs. I just focus on the figures, mainly because they look super cool on my shelf. The bright side is that I learned never to buy figures when they first come out. I don't think I really paid MSRP often, but I know there will always be B2g1 sales somewhere.

    Quick question before I get excited for 2.0, but is there ANY reason to have the figures be on a portal, or connection between stuff on the portal and the game besides character select? Any reason the figures exist besides to sell figures? Skylanders at least kept the characters level/gold on the figure...just want to hope there's more of a reason than character/prop select.

    The characters hold their level on the figure. This didn't do much in 1.0 but in 2.0 there will be selectable skills you can get when you level up. The figures should remember those skills as well.

    They also have entries, no pictures, for Donald Duck, Tinkerbell, and Stitch. Also leaked are two figures apparently from an upcoming disney film, Big Hero 6

    So my gf is a Disney person who also enjoyed the Marvel movies and I now own a Wii U. I mentioned this to her and she seemed interested after checking out the website for a bit. I love the shit out of minecraft and building things in general.

    Any reason to jump in now or do we wait for 2.0? Any murmurs of a Star Wars set now that Disney owns it? That's really the only Disney property I give any shits about.
