Tribute- RIP Disney Infinity

 

ben-simonsen-the-force-ben-simonsen

It saddens me that one of best designed toys out in the market will be gone. What will we tell the kids? The little infinities are in a better place…

It was quite a feat to get all these different intellectual properties to exist in one world and feel consistent. Most impressive!

Get them while you can. As a fan I’m happy Boba Fett figure made it out alive before the plug was pulled. Siempre como Culebra Boba!

Let’s take a look at some of the great talent that went into this fine toy/game line. It really does take a village to make a game right.
