With less than two weeks left until the launch of ‘Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes,’ Disney Interactive today is offering a first look at two more additions to the Marvel Super Heroes line-up. Joining the already assembled team will be Yondu, from Marvel’s box office hit Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America’s loyal ally, Falcon.
Character highlights include:
Disney Interactive today officially announced the inclusion of two of the stars from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Big Hero 6 (November 7, 2014): Hiro and a fully armored Baymax. Along with the two Toy Box 2.0 figures, a power disc featuring the talents of chemistry wiz Honey Lemon was also announced. You can find additional photos of the figures, concept art, screens (which also include good looks at Medua’s boat from The Rescuers and Jim Hawkin’s surfboard from Treasure Planet), the trailer and more embedded below.

Disney Interactive today announced that a special Disney-themed Toy Box Starter Pack is set to launch on November 4, 2014, just in time for the holidays. The Disney Infinity: Toy Box Starter Pack (2.0 Edition) gives Disney fans the chance to experience the new and improved Toy Box 2.0 mode, set in the wonderful world of Disney, and is compatible with the game’s Marvel Play Sets.
Amazon has begun listing what it refers to as the Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Premium Value Pack for all consoles at launch for the price of $119.99. In addition to the starter pack featuring the Avengers play set, figures and toy box game discs, the bundle also includes the Spider-Man play set, Captain America figure, Venom figure and Rocket Raccoon figure (as a reminder, Rocket Raccoon is playable inside the Avengers play set once enough tokens are collected during regular game play) as well as a Marvel power disc blind pack.
Disney Interactive today announced that Donald Duck will be the next of the Disney Originals characters to appear as a Toy Box playable in Disney Infinity 2.0. Donald joins other Disney and Pixar characters recently announced for the second generation of ‘Disney Infinity 2.0,’ such as Merida, Maleficent, Stitch, Tinker Bell, Aladdin and Jasmine.
Joining Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey, Donald Duck is the second of Disney’s fab five to be added to the Toy Box and is sure to bring nostalgia to Disney fans everywhere. Donald Duck delivers his signature catch-phrases, fiery temper and special abilities like tossing objects, sweeping up enemies with a broom and becoming a feathered fury to the new Toy Box mode where families will be able to use hundreds of Disney and Marvel themed items, locations, props, vehicles and characters to create one-of-a-kind adventures.
Created in partnership with Sideshow Collectibles, this 18″x24″ follow-up to the Steamboat Willie print will retail for $45 and will be limited a print run of just 325 pieces.
It will go on sale this Thursday, May 5, 2011 at MondoTees.com at a random time. Those interested in purchasing the poster are advised to follow @MondoNews on Twitter for the sale announcement as the Mondo prints have been known to sell out completely in seconds.
Just moments ago, the Disney Dream held a formal christening ceremony for its AquaDuck water coaster and we were there beside gal pal Daisy to help bring the event to you. Before he took his own maiden voyage on the AquaDuck, Donald Duck christened the first-of-its-kind attraction by adding in water collected from Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach waterparks located at Walt Disney World.
Then it was go for launch as Daisy cheered on her man — er, duck.
U.S. District Judge John R. Padova has ruled that a recent lawsuit charging an act of molestation by Donald Duck in Epcot back in 2008 will go forward in Pennsylvania despite attempts by The Walt Disney Company to have the case moved to Florida.
According to the decision, the plaintiff, April Magolon, her fiance (a witness) and her doctors are all located in the state, justifying the decision to leave the case within its borders.
Magolon, who is seeking charges in excess of $50,000, has claimed that the incident has resulted in ‘severe physical injury, emotional anguish and distress including, but not limited to post-traumatic stress disorder.’
MINDstyle has been promoting Epic Mickey in a very vague way as of late and with the other merchandising for the game going on, particularly through Hot Topic, it’d be of little shock if MINDstyle were to produce vinyl adult toy collectibles (ATCs) in support of the game.

Enter Animatronic Donald Duck. I’ll be honest, this may not be news, but this is the first time I’ve personally seen any form of these animatronic Disney characters since the initial concept art was leaked. According to the blog entry from MINDstyle:
