Disney Infinity Pre-Order Thread

Hi,
I wanted to start a thread for the Disney Infinity Pre-Order. Here we can keep track of the best offers, updates, and more.

While I am going to start compiling a list of pre-orders (help would be appreciated) I will link this E3 video which is both funny and a great look into the game.

From what I have seen, all pre-order deals on the starter packs are the same except for The Disney Store. I have not seen pre-order deals on playsets, disc packs, character packs, or individual characters.

Everywhere but The Disney Store: Starter Pack, 1 additional figure, 1 power disc pack $74.99

The Disney Store: Starter Pack, $15 credit toward future purchase, $74.99

The non-Disney Store pre-order deal is actually a little better, with an $11.99 character and $4.99 disc pack versus a simple $15 credit.

I went with Amazon, since they don't charge sales tax for where I live! We picked Mater for the free additional figure. And I picked up 2 additional power disc packs to start with. I'm sure those disc packs are going to be addicting...

What is this exactly? Both of my kids want this game. Is it a console like PS3 or is it a game you can play on any of the current game consoles including hand held? I'm so confused....

It's a game that plays on the current consoles. They have a 3ds version, but I don't know about the other hand held options.

It seems to have a couple different modes/aspects of gameplay, which seems a bit confusing, but in my mind this means the kids won't get bored as easily.

For gaming, I see two main styles. #1). Sky landers style with the action figures. You pick a figure that you want to play with and then place it on the portal/console and that character is automatically loaded in the game. If you pick a Cars character, then you play cars themed games. If you pick a different movie character, you play games associated with that movie. The games seem to vary. #2) free play style. If your kids like Minecraft or My Sims, then they will probably like this too. Not sure exactly, but it seems that when goals/achievement are made in the themed games, then features are unlocked in the sandbox play. basically, you'll be able to build custom worlds to play in, with stuff from the movies and real life theme parks, like Spaceship Earth. That's what sold me on it

For both of those gaming styles, get ready to spend a lot of money if you or your kids are collectors. You'll end up wanting to accumulate more figures as each figure brings along its own set of strengths and weaknesses. Then, there are the power discs, those add more features to a character, like stronger weapons and armor, but also goofy stuff for the toy box mode, like Mickey's car. There are 2 discs in a blind pack, and some discs are rare, so I'm sure there will be some trading going on with these. Kids will probably be getting a lot of these...

Hope that explanation helps. I haven't played the game, so it might not be 100% accurate, but from a parents perspective, that's the gist of it

I'd there something you can attach to, say a ps3, to make the figurine interact with it?

It appears that the figures just attach to it. It's not like a play set where the figures go down slides or buttons that make them move.

You might want to watch a couple of their promotional videos in order to get a better understanding.

I just re-read a couple of my comments and I'm probably not as clear as I'd like to be. I had foot surgery on Friday, and I guess the pain meds are affecting me a bit more than I expected. LOL

Here is a link to Best Buy - Just received an email from them on the product.

Starter Pack - $74.99

With purchase of the Starter Pack you get a free character.

The free character deal is appealing, but I cant decide on which one I want.

Interested to see if there are better offers out there.

Toy R Us has a 20% coupon for a regular priced Disney Infinity Item.

http://trus.imageg.net/graphics/medi..._BTS2_Base.pdf

I haven't been to the store yet to ask but it looks like you can use it on the starter pack which makes the price $59.99

There is a link to the coupon on this page:

If you are pre-ordering from Toys 'r Us and want the free character and free power disc pack, you can't use the 20% off coupon.

Toys 'r Us appears to have the best pre-order offer. You get a free Power Disc Pack in addition to the free Character. They also offer free standard shipping. You can't mix this offer with the 20% off coupon posted above.

As Wei Po Yang pointed out in the 2nd post, most pre-orders include both the free power disc pack and the free character (Disney store has a different offer). I went with Amazon over Toys R Us because I'll save a few more bucks on sales tax.

I'll probably use the Toys R Us 20% off coupon on the Cars or Lone Ranger sets

My kids are addicted to Minecraft, so naturally, they are very interested in the Infinity Toy Box feature. We've been watching the youtube videos and it looks like this is going to be a lot of fun

That's is not what I was told at my local store last night. One of the managers read the coupon and said I would be able to use it. I'll be super ticked if that's not the case on release day.

Eta: I just put starter pack in the cart on the TRU website, applied the code and the price reduced to $59.99.
