YMMV: Disney Infinity

  • Awesome Moments: In one trailer, anyone who'd always wanted to see Randall vs. Violet finally got their wish.
  • Awesome Music: The music that plays in trailers for the game.
  • Base Breaker: Falcon, mainly do to his stigma of being a Replacement Scrappy in Avengers Assemble. Those only familiar with his incarnation in the cartoon see his inclusion as a waste of a figure, and that characters like Kermit and The Mystery Twins deserve figures far more than he does.
  • Broken Base
    • There are a few people disappointed at the lack of characters from Disney's renaissance era, with most of the playable characters coming from most of Disney's post-2000 work, like Wreck-It Ralph and Pirates of the Caribbean.
    • Some are disappointed at there are hardly any characters from the Disney Animated Canon at all. The few that are are only from post-2010 CG films. There wouldn't be any 2D animated characters until Stitch, Aladdin and Jasmine were introduced in 2.0.
    • Many Pixar detractors and "classic" Disney fans were upset that the first game's roster was roughly half Pixar characters and half "actual" Disney characters. The fact that more than half of the game's playsets were based on Pixar movies while fan-favorites like Jack Skellington and even Mickey Mouse were toybox exclusives didn't help.
    • Cars characters being in the games. They're, well, cars so they really stand out.
    • Phineas and Perry are in despite being from animated series rather than movies. Ideally this could make way for even more potential characters and playsets, such as an often requested Kim Possible figure, or a Recess playset. However, some fans are under the impression that it's a one time deal due to their popularity.
    • The Marvel universe being the main focus of the second game broke the base even further.
      • There's a further split with people upset that the X-Men & Fantastic Four aren't included, seemingly because of Disney's dispute with Fox over the movie rights to characters. The potential of having the Richards family encountering the Parr family is certainly enticing...
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Most characters just sound so happy to see you when you put them on the base.
  • Designated Villain: Randy is lumped in with Davy Jones and Syndrome in the villains pack even though he does nothing to warrant it in the main MU gameplay.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse
  • First Installment Wins: Averted. The majority of the roster is comprised of characters from source material originating from the 2000s. The exceptions are Mickey Mouse (of course), Jack Skellington and Maleficent, and that's not counting the Marvel heroes: the oldest character amongst the latter group is Captain America, who made his debut in 1941. This makes him the second oldest character in the entire game behind Mickey. In a notable exception, the game uses Sam Alexander, the second Nova, rather than Richard Rider, the original Nova. It also features Carol Danvers in her Captain Marvel persona rather than as Ms. Marvel.
  • Funny Moments: Anna's derp face here. Fixed in later shipments of the figure.
  • Heartwarming Moments: The announcement trailer for the Aladdin and Jasmine two-pack.
  • Internet Backdraft: The announcement that Sam Flynn and Quorra are iOS and PC are exclusive rather than being actual figures didn't sit well with... anyone. At all.
    • Rubbing salt in the wound in Toy Box TV episode 55 just made things worse.
  • No Problem with Licensed Games: Despite a few shortcomings, the series' reception has been mostly positive.
  • Periphery Demographic:
  • Porting Disaster:
    • It's long since been patched, but the PS3 version had a save corruption bug for a while.
    • The Wii version doesn't have the online functions the HD consoles do. That means you can't upload or download levels created in the Toy Box by other users. There have also been reports of lack of multiplayer in the Play Sets.
    • The Wii U version of 2.0 added online functionality, but still has frequent framerate drops.
    • The iOS version of the toybox has lots of problems, such as severe frame rate issues and impractical touch-controls.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: Leveling up a character after it grows past level five is difficult enough, but try doing it with a toy box exclusive character, and THEN try it after you've completed all the feats!
    • 2.0 makes things quite a bit easier with the addition of "Survival Challenges", which involve an endless series of Randomly Generated "Kill all the Enemies" and Tower Defense levels, giving you plenty of mooks for you to beat up for XP.
  • Stop Helping Me!: The announcer can REALLY grate on one's nerves after the Umpteenth time he walks you through the "Packs and Tools" and "Mission Log" tutorials. He'll even talk over character dialogue.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: All of Disney in one video game? That's awesome! We could have Jack Skellington teaching scaring in Monsters U, or Elsa can freeze the ocean in the pirates playset! The possibilities truly are infinite... Oh, they're all designated to their own playset? And some of them can only be used in the toybox? Well, I guess that can be fun, too.
  • Uncanny Valley: Phineas is pretty strange looking in three dimensions.
  • Worth It: Is it really worth buying all twenty nine figures of Infinity 1.0 just to have your favorite Disney characters wield a Lightsaber? IT'S WORTH EVERY PENNY!
