    Have seen this game banded about and for all skylanders was a kids game i enjoyed it with them, and the collection of figures. I could see this doing well too and the cast list could be huge and very collectable.

    Finally confirmed!

    Looks to be a huge investment on Disney's part and, as a game, it holds up far better than Skylanders, which is lacking in a huge amount from a gaming perspective.

    Current inclusion of the main Pixar franchises and Pirates of the Caribbean is a good thing.

    I'm happy to ditch the Skylanders that I have and move over to this. Pre-orders at Toys R Us are currently 44.99 across the board with Voucher 9908087559996 (RRP is 69.99/54.99).

    @Ignatius_Cheese

    Great spot, everyone else is 60-65 so that looks a good price.
    Well worth a punt at that price.

    @Kangoo Yup I'm happy to preorder at that price.

    It isn't lighting up HotUKDeals at the mo as there are quite a few Skylanders apologists on there but this looks to be so much more than Skylanders.

    Looking forward to wasting my money on figures from different series! :)

    If it works like skylanders you might be able to put the toy on the pad without taking it out of the box.. But there is no fun in that :-)

    Anybody know if there are going to be any platform differences? I have the xbox version on pre-order but was thinking about possibly getting the Wii U version.

    Does anybody know if you need to buy all the figures to be able to play the "complete" game ?

    I woudn't have thought so. Skylander's doesn't need them all, but they do make it so some types are required to unlock secret areas, so you basically need one of each type to get the 'best' stuff.

    This doesn't stop our lad wanting all the characters mind. :(

    I dread when I pass the 360 on to him and he wants this.

    He already saw an advert for it at the cinema recently when we went to see Monsters University so is aware of it and it's many different characters...

    @Vortex808
    :)
    I have the "starter set" thingy from Toys r us, it was 48 for a limited time with a 10 voucher so I thought why not.

    I actually really enjoy Toy Story 3 toy box mode, has Master Vortex played that ? I still play it now and again with my daughter.

    He does indeed have that on 'his' Wii. ;) He has lost interest in it for now I think once he got skylanders for his birthday.

    TS3 wasn't too bad from what I've seen so far. I should maybe suggest trying the toy box mode and see how he likes it.

    I often have to play some skylanders when it gets a bit 'tricky for me' so have more knowledge of that and Mario kart.

    Oh Jesus, I never should have looked into this. The simple fact you can make levels and share them (unlike Minecraft 360) has planted it in my brain. The prices they have on it are extortionate, and despite that they are going to make so much money I can't even imagine it.

    Looking forward to playing this with my daughter, I know she will absolutely love it and saw some Tangled characters somewhere so she will definitely be up for those.

    Just hope it can build on TS3.

    Sadly, buying shit like this is probably the main reason I won't wind up with kids to share it with.

    Also, should have been called Disneylanders.

    I thought I was the only one ;)

    The game certainly looks like it's not just a cheap cash in, much like I felt about Skylanders. I love the fact it's more about it being a virtual toy box that you can mess around with. That sounds awesome. May have to buy it for my niece at some point. She's not old enough yet so I'll have to play it for her of course.

    I'm glad my daughter isn't old enough to play games yet, she loves Tangled. Maybe Disney Infinity 2 eh? :)

    I found myself looking at a $100 glass display case today. Hopefully I'll read enough downsides in reviews, although the sheer unaffordability of it will probably do the trick.

    Last time I spent a whole lot of money on stupid shit was Star Wars Lego. Though I did wind up selling that off for what I paid for it... Doubt I'd be so lucky with this stuff.

    First batch of reviews are in, summarised here, seems pretty decent.

    Went into Game at lunchtime and they have loads of figures behind the counter, glad I have an interested daughter as an excuse to pick this up ;)

    Been having a look at it in shops. one interesting concession to collectors is the base works with figures still in their packets.

    I assume I will get the started pack (360) anytime now. Ordered from TRU for the first time ever due to an offer they had on. Not a problem even if it is late, the little woman is not overly interested at the mo.

    Reviews have been good, would be nice to hear EG's take of course

    My starter set (I of course mean my daughters ;) ) has arrived. It looks very neat and tidy in the box, not too sure I want to open it...

    Let me know how many figures you buy over the weekend!

    I dread our boy hearing about this at school, if his constant need to buy skylanders is anything to go by. :)
