Disney Infinity 2.0 has a couple ways of keeping track of your Infinity collection. In the game menu there is a Disney Infinity Collection menu. Selecting this option will pull up a checklist of all the figures and power discs you have taken ownership of. This menu has been updated to include yet to be released characters and power discs. I discovered a couple power discs not listed on my other checklists. Marvel Team up: Captain Marvel and Ultimate Falcon Costume. Continue reading
Set in the “Ultimate” Spiderverse, the Spider-Man play set is my favorite adventure yet. Swinging into action as Spider-Man has a timing, feel and control the true web-slinger would have in the real world. I feel awkward, like Peter Parker testing things out for the first time.

I was late picking up my copy of Disney Kingdoms, Figment #2 from Marvel (early if you consider I am several years behind all of my favorite titles). Helpful hint #1 when you see it advertised on shelves July 6, understand they are shipped to stores the Wednesday prior.

The new comic book series for Disney Kingdoms by Marvel is Figment. A turn of the century tale of science fiction set in London, England during a time of industrial exploration and discovery. Again Marvel and Disney Imagineers dive into the rich history of the parks to bring us adventure and a deeper understanding of the characters developed for EPCOT in Florida. Growing up a Country away from Orlando, in California, the characters Figment and the Dream Finder were Disney myths. What is cooler, to a boy, than a purple dragon with a fish tail? The mystery surrounding him. The new story promises fans a dearer connection to the character while introducing countless others to a new imaginary friend. I look forward to learning more about this creative creature and the origin of the Dream Finder.
This is the first time I’ve started a comic book series at number one and I am already wishing I had the rest of the story. Issue one ends with an imaginative cliff hanger! Alas, I will wait until July seventh, like everyone else, to see what happens in issue two. Will this new tale usher in a whole new set of Figment adventures throughout Disney entertainment? Is Disney Infinity already developing Figment for the toy box? I can only dream!
