There was also some new information revealed that is very exciting. Some of that information has confused many people due to other fan sites and media pages misinterpreting the info. So I will share that first to clarify! It was said that there would be a new variant of an existing figure released with a new paint job. This was confused with new information shared regarding a new costume change that would be seen in game available as an IPG (in game purchase). This is all a big misunderstanding. Somehow, people got that a new variant figure was coming. Let me clarify this with the new info…

The “new variant figure” was referring to the Crystal Sorcerer Mickey being released. That is the one and only variant figure being released in this run of 2.0. However, there was some awesome cool news regarding a costume change. During the year cycle of the 2.0 game, there will be a new costume change available for purchase in game of and existing character, that does NOT require a costume change disc. Thats right, a costume change that will work on an existing character available at retail, that can be purchased via IPG. Now who it could be is where all speculation should be! My guess is either Mickey, where you turn him into his classic version or Baymax where you can remove his armor. Its to early to know anything. Hope this clears up a lot of confussion.

Whos costume will have a change without a power disc?

Here are a few more bits of info that is worth noting:

  • The Two unannounced Figures will be released early next year.
  • Disney Infinity 2.0 Accessories themed to the Disney Originals characters will be release early next year.
  • Toy box elite team will be creating and releasing specially designed toy boxes themed to each of the new figures being released down the road. One worth mentioning is a game themed to Aladdin and Jasmine based on the old Genesis version of an Aladdin game.
  • Any ideas for figures and power discs that you come up with, if you draw them and post it to the Disney Infinity FB page or Twitter, JV usually will share some of the suggestions to there Avalanche team, so your ideas are always welcomed.
  • Character paint overs of existing characters can definitely happen in the future. For now its not a priority, but its possible.
  • The words “Star Wars” were brought up on the call about DI 3.0. JV was asked not to answer the question by their PR team, which makes us a bit more excited! :)
