This week on Vinylmation Vault we are staying at the Magic Kingdom and heading over to the Haunted Mansion to visit a slightly different and a yummy version of the famous Hitchhiking trio Phineas, Ezra and Gus.

There are several other versions of these guys available to collect in Vinyl form from the Haunted Mansion set to the Park Starz Series. Well only Gus and Ezra are available as Park Starz for now. The ones for this week will be the Mystery Bakery Haunted Mansion Series set which include the dynamic trio of Phineas, Ezra and Gus.

The Haunted Mansion Mystery Bakery series are a bit more whimsical looking than their Haunted Mansions versions and they are a bit cheaper on the open market as well.

What I like about this set is how the Artist Ron Cohee adapted these iconic guys into cupcake form while still keeping them the lovable characters we all know and adore. The ghostly green and grey colors used with these guys set off hauntingly nice and eerily amazing look.

Of course there’s a bit of spilled icing on each of the cupcake Hitchhiking Ghosts, which in turn makes each of the three happy in own way. Phineas with a big splotch on his head and some on his nose as well. He looks like he is rather eager to taste the icing as soon as it can get in reach of his tongue. Ezra has his usual maniacal look on as always but the icing is quite out of reach for him to enjoy. Finally Gus only received a small splattering on his nose where he is trying oh so hard taste it as soon as it is in reach of his tongue.

But what cupcake would not be complete with out icing? The icing is two-toned purple and green accompanied white screaming skulls. The skulls reminded from the organ located in the Ballroom from the Haunted Mansion ride.

So what are your favorite recreations of the Haunted Mansion Trio or even the attraction itself? Well that’s all for this weeks Vinylmation Vault and come back again to see what comes out of the Vault. Do you have a vinylmation that you would like to see in future Vault Series? Post a comment below!

Oh and these are my favorites versions of the Trio!

With the Disney Infinity Phineas and Agent P Toy Box Pack being released retail wide here in the US on April 1st, we thought that we would rerun our first look of them back during Toy Fair. Enjoy! ~ Travis

At the Disney Consumer Products Event yesterday during Toy Fair, Disney Infinity had a preview event for their upcoming figures, Agent P and Phineas, from the Phineas and Ferb TV Series. In addition to these figures being widely popular with children, they are also coveted by adults, as they are the last in the 29 regular release (base) characters for Disney Infinity. With them, something special is unlocked, which will be talked about later. At the end of the event, each guest was presented a gift bag, in which was our own set of Agent P and Phineas characters in their Toy Box Pack. This pack also includes the Danville Customization Discs, which one can use to turn their Toy Box’s Skydome and Texture to that to Danville, the hometown of Phineas.

It was a good thing that I brought with me to the hotel my X-Box 360, as I spent last night exploring everything that this Toy Box Pack offers.

***SPOILER ALERT! IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW DETAILS ABOUT AGENT P AND PHINEAS, PLEASE STOP HERE.***

OK, I am assuming if you are still here, you want to know more. Let’s start.

Danville Customization Discs

IMG_2788 IMG_2787

I’d say if you are a fan of the TV Series, you are going to really enjoy this disc set. Some of the tree pieces turn into objects for the imagination, such as a climbable stack of wood that could be turned in a tower or a fort. The skyline of Danville is nice in the background. I am especially intrigued by the design of the track (road) pieces. With it’s red and white border pattern, I feel that it is a nice racetrack option.

NOTE: It has been confirmed at the preview event that these two discs WILL be part of the Series 3 Power Discs, bringing the set total to 17.

Special Powers/ Tools

Agent P- Agent P’s Special Power is the Platypus Pummel, which resembles little platypus karate moves. For his tool, our favorite platypus uses his hat a a projectile, which, like a boomerang, comes back to him.

Phineas- Phineas’ Special power is Tuck ‘n’ Roll… he tucks, and rolls. For his Tool, in true inventor fashion, Phineas as fashioned himself a Baseball Shooter.

Unlockables

NOTE: In the photos, Phineas is showcasing Agent P’s unlockables, and vice versa. This was done intentionally to show that, once unlocked in the Toy Box, they can be used by any character.

Agent P-

Special Adventures

NOTE: No images here, as I think you will enjoy it more seeing it yourself. that and the pictures did not do either of the adventures justice.

Agent P & The Infinity-inator

Buckle up for not one, but FIVE, mini adventures in this one large adventure. Travel to worlds (levels) trying to defeat Dr. Doofenshmirtz and his Infinity-inator weapon and break the yellow breakables. From aerial view to side scrolling, this one has it all. I am not going to give too much away here, but if you are playing and feel like you are having a 8-bit flashback… go with it. Definite homage is paid here.

 

Phineas- Phineas’ Pinball Mania

Use your imagination and inventor skills to construct a pinball machine to destroy bots on the course. The longer you prevent them from getting safely through the course, the better your star will be at the end.

Both of these games were awesome and challenging. Great job DI team.

 

Ultimate Pack

As reported late last week, is has been confirmed that the Ultimate Pack is, in fact, the Star Wars Lightsaber. Once you get at least a bronze statue (Level 1) in the Hall of Heroes for EACH of the 29 characters (Crystal Series not included), it will appear in the center lit area of the Hall. The lightsaber is then available in the Packs option in the Toy Box. The lightsaber is a “one shot kill”, meaning that it will destroy any enemy with only one swipe combo. Pretty sweet.

 IMG_2813 IMG_2814

Well, that’s all for this preview, but I am sure that is enough, right?
Be on the lookout for the Phineas and Agent P Toy Box Pack, available April 1st here in the United States retail wide. Gamestop will be getting the Toy Box pack in early for a Timed Exclusive, set to release on March 14th.

Thank again to the team at Disney Infinity for including the preview in the Toy Fair Disney Event this year, and for another pair of fun Toy Box characters.
