In a image of the tray, there is a Mickey Mouse from the short Croissant de Triomphe.  But Mickey is sporting a Knights helmet rather than a motorcycle helmet which is on the box.

Could this variant exist exist or is it simply a publishing error?

Today sees the release of the Crystal Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey for Disney Infinity across the U.S. This figure is the last of the crystal figures and also the last figure to be released for Disney Infinity and it also works with Disney Infinity 2.0.

Unlike previous crystal figures, this figure isn’t an Toys R Us exclusive and is available at most retailers.

A while ago, we reported that there was a possible Gravity Falls Waddles variant discovered on eBay being sold by a Hong Kong Scrapper seller, but we weren’t 100% if this variant was going to be in actual series, however thanks to Mark Anderson, who has sent us this photo confirming that the Waddles variant is out there in blind boxes.

This past Friday, Disney released a new blind box series based on the hit TV show, Gravity Falls at Walt Disney World and Online.  We now know of another variant of Mabel, dressed in a suit with glasses, thanks to Vinylmation Exchange member Kim Nguyen.    For Mabel fans, 2014 has become a little expensive with this becoming the 3rd variant version of her this year.

In the last Disney Infinity figure release of 2014, Crystal Sorcerer Apprentice Mickey is a strange release that brings the last of the original 1.0 characters onto the 2.0 platform. Disney have decided that the Crystal variants aren’t returning to Disney Infinity 2.0, originally this figure was supposed to be released before 2.0 was launched, Sorcerer Mickey was delayed and the decision was made to release it for 2.0. However Crystal Sorcerer Mickey does work on the original video game as well, so if you haven’t upgraded to 2.0 yet, this will be the last figure for 1.0.

This figure is due to be released on 5th December in the United States and has been released in some European countries already. And this figure has also been given away as gifts to people attending the Toy Box Summit and D23 Rewind event in Walt Disney World.   In the US, this figure has been given some new 2.0 themed packaging whereas in Europe, the packaging is slightly different.

And here is a look at Crystal Mickey in action, including a look at his abilities and skill tree.

Overall Crystal Sorcerer Mickey is a nice additional figure to add to your Disney Infinity collection, but isn’t an essential purchase as the crystal version isn’t too much different from the original figure, which I prefer. Its a shame they didn’t add any additional abilities to the Sorcerer Mickey, especially with being released during the 2.0 life cycle. Not having a special move like the new 2.0 is slightly frustrating since this figure, feels like it should have been upgraded having a similar move set to one of the new 2.0 figures. So comparing this figure to any character from 2.0, means it comes up short, however as a 1.0 character, Mickey is still a lot of fun. While the Crystal version of Sorcerer Mickey isn’t for everyone, he is a interesting figure to add to your collection.

This coming November, Disney are set to release a brand new 8 piece blind box series based on the popular Gravity Falls cartoon. Back at the Imagination Gala event, which took place in September, we saw the figures out on display and now thanks to some Hong Kong Scrapper sellers on eBay, it looks like we might have our first look at a possible Waddles variant figure.

We would like to remind people, we don’t condone the purchase of Scrappers as these are usually items which have failed quality control and were supposed to be destroyed.

Here is a look at the variant figure currently available on eBay.
