100 Aker Wood

100 Aker Wood

Welcome to the first of, hopefully, many articles that explore how different films from the Disney Animated Classics line can be adapted into Play Sets for Infinity. Each week, I will sit through a different film and take some general notes on what things I think would be pretty cool to add to the game, and piece it all together into a set.

First up, I will be merging The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and the 2011 Winnie the Pooh films, as well as add a few dashes of the animated series that ran on the Disney Afternoon block and other related films.

Character Figures:

Winnie the Pooh and Tigger seem to be a pretty good combination. Originally I was going to add Rabbit as a potential third figure, but decided to cut him out in favor of having him act as an NPC to give a bunch of side quests related to his garden. The Play Set piece would be a Hunny Pot.

 

For attacks, I imagine that Pooh would throw empty hunny pots (mainly because I can’t see him throwing away perfectly good hunny.) and with his ground pound, perhaps a large glob of sticky hunny would appear. Tigger of course, would have his bounce to give extra height during his jumps and would also factor in with his ground pound. I could also see Tigger doing a spin attack, given all of his energy.

 

Of course, in a Play Set each character also has three chests to be hunted down with goodies inside. Here are the ones that could work well for our two figures:

 

Pooh’s Chests:

1) Piglet Townsperson

2) Pooh’s Cork Gun

3) Pooh’s “Poohckoo” Clock (To use indoors as a decoration)

 

Tigger’s Chests:

1) Bouncy Spring toy

2) Kanga Townsperson

3) Roo Townsperson

 

Play Set Storyline(s):

Given the episodic nature of the first Winnie the Pooh film, and how every show related to him tends to take place around daily life, I decided to add three storylines of equal length. For the side quests, almost any plot from the 1980’s series could easily be adapted for use.

 

Plot 1:  The first storyline would essentially pit your character against the Heffalumps and Woozles who are raiding the 100 Acre Wood, stealing all of the hunny pots and causing a lot of mischief. One potential reward for finishing this storyline could be unlocking a townsperson for the friendly Heffalump, Lumpy.

 

Plot 2: This plot would follow Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, where the very blustery winds are causing damage to the woods and homes, needing it to be fixed. It would end with the large flood that occurs, and needing to save Piglet who has become stuck floating about on his chair.

 

Plot 3: The final plot would center around the film “Pooh’s Grand Adventure” and your character would help lead the search for Christopher Robin who has gone missing. A nice tie-in to the 2011 film would have a rumor that the Backson has kidnapped him.

 

Enemies:

In order to keep the play set going with enemies, I decided to take three different variations of both the Heffalumps and Woozles to add as enemies, aside from a basic skin, who would also be unlocked for the Toy Box.

For Heffalumps, I have decided to list these three as the different versions:

1) Tuba Heffalump

2) Ballerina Heffalump (Which also gives the very rare female enemy)

3) Flying Bee-Heffalump

Heffalump Bee

And for the Woozles:

1) Woozle-in-the-Box

2) Trumpeteer Woozle

3) Hunny Charmer Woozle

 

Green Capsule Items/Various Unlockables:

And finally, we reach all of the different goodies that could be unlocked for the Toy Box through the large Vault and Green Capsules. This is only a partial list, since I did not have access to all of the television series. Despite this, I think this is still a pretty large list.

 

Terrain Related:

Woozle’s Textures and Heffalump’s Sky – Based off of the trippy song, complete with that song as background music.

Storybook Texture and Sky – This would give your world a storybook feeling, possibly adapting some of the trees as pop-ups. The Winnie the Pooh theme would play in the background with this sky.

Hunny Terrain – Why have waterfalls when you can have hunnyfalls pouring out of jars that hang in the sky? To that extent, why settle for rivers of water when it could take on a hunny appearance instead?

 

 

Hunny Jar Falls

 

 

Vehicles:

Once more, I am going to turn to the Heffalumps and Woozles and use the Heffalump-Hot Air Balloon form as a vehicle to ride (or float) about in.

 

Heffalump Air Balloons

 

 

Everything Else:

Alphabet Set (4 to find): Unlock black lettering so you can write stories in the sky or on the ground.

Punctuation Set: The same as above, but providing a few helpful pieces of punctuation for when you write.

Hunny Tree

Rabbit’s Garden

100 Acre Wood Houses Set

Rabbit’s Garden Bridge

 

Aside from the above, there are a ton of decoration ideas for the new Interior’s feature that is being added to the Toy Box in Infinity 2.0, such as wooden windows, doors, and trim based off of the character’s homes. There is also framed pictures of Bees from Pooh’s home, and perhaps even a decoration could be added of Pooh being stuck in Rabbit’s door that can be placed on your walls, as well as stacks of empty (or full) hunny pots.

That is all for this Play Set! I hope you have enjoyed it, and look forward to tackling the next film for ideas. Please feel free to comment on the set, add your own ideas, or even request a film from the classics to be tackled next. If requested, I can also try to provide some links to youtube videos that give a more visual idea of what different things look like. Until next time, have a great week!

Most Expensive Vinylmation Of The Week:

Here is this weeks most expensive Vinylmation of the week. Every week, we scavenge the internet for the pricey Vinylmations around.

New York Collection: Statue of Liberty

This exclusive Statue of Liberty vinylmation from the New York collection was only sold in New York Stores, hence the name. It was sold for a limited time, it was a 9″ vinyl and was slightly hard to get hold off.

NYStatue

 

The seller “Ukpartsdeal” has 98.2% positive feedback. A majority of the negative comments are on the length of shipping due to the seller ships from Germany. The Vinylmation will cost you $506.66!!! That’s a massive increase on the original RRP!
