Looks like we’ll never see this Doctor Strange “Disney Infinity” figurine on our shelves

in Artwork, Disney, Entertainment, Marvel, Nintendo, Playstation, Video Games, Xbox

We announced a few weeks ago that the folks over at Disney Infinity are calling it quits.

There will be no more figurines crafted, and no more games in the franchise. The toys-to-life series involved crafting your own play-sets and platforming through cartoonish, alternate versions of classic Disney stories and movies. It was certainly quite an  investment to collect all the toys needed to participate fully in the product, and the franchise just didn’t seem to collect as much steam as competitors like the Skylanders series.

This means we won’t be getting this previously-announced Doctor Strange figure:

Bummer, right? It would have been kind of find tooling around in the toybox utilizing the good doctor’s affinity for magic to get the job done! But alas, we only have images of this wicked-looking figure to remind us of what could have been. I’m sure Marvel will release a ton of cool toys featuring the character as the film’s November 4th release date gets closer.

So what do you think? Are you going to miss Disney Infinity, or was it time to throw in the towel on the series? Let me know what you think in the comments below, and for all things Disney, stick with ITM!

  1. I’m going to miss it. We really enjoyed collecting the figures and playing the games as a family.

    Going to miss it although the prices were increasing making them hard to collect, and some frustrating aspects of the game bugged me. (Why can’t I use bay max in marvel game?)
    Now the few old characters I had will be extra impossible to find affordably. Sigh.
    Will miss it

    I am going to miss it. It was a great way to bring home Disney and movies. So many properties left to cover that we will not see. It is a real shame.

    I think canceling such a fun and creative game series is a huge mistake. Not only does it make the Disney Company look selfish and money-hungry, but it also robs the world of future imgaineers that the game series could have inspired.

    It is such a shame that the franchise is not continuing making Disney Infinity. As a consumer who has Disney Infinity and Disney Infinity 2.0, I believe personally the issue was that they continuously released new versions requiring a whole new game and a whole new game pad. In addition, the pricing of each of these play set additions became increasingly expensive over time which turned an initially $80 game into over a $300 + game. My partner doesn’t even spend that much on normal Play Station 4 games. I think too Skylanders was always more popular. As with the new Lego Dementions on the market too adding extra competition.
