Posted by seek83

Posted by Evercaptor

Thank god they're keeping this tech to kid's toys. There is no way I'm collecting tchochskies for anything I'd consider "my type" of game.

I'm in, this looks cool as hell

@Tesuto: looks like it, now I have the sudden urge to play Forza Horizon...

Posted by Jdiggity88

@Tesuto: that's the first thing i thought too. That would be a money making machine

Me and You by Nero seems a little unfitting with the trailer, imo.

Posted by ObeseStickman

Good use of dubstep.

Posted by MasterXell

Call me crazy, but I think its a pretty neat idea. I've never played Skylanders at all, but this kind of could really be something neat.

Is it me or is it weird that none of these characters are straight up "Disney" in the traditional sense? What I mean is, they're mostly PIXAR or Film characters, not like Mickey, Goofy, Donald, Disney Princesses etc. I wonder why.

I like the art and Nero.

Posted by CrimsonJester

and think about the fact they have Marvel they can add to all of this, oh and Star Wars.

Yeah. I was think about that too. I think a lot of people are. But then again, today's kids and teenagers are far more familiar with these newer characters.

Johnny V wants some of that Skylanders money.

THIS song? Really?!

I love the concept of Skylanders but never got into it because it wasn't an overall brand that i cared about, i didn't care about the characters or the universe it created but Disney? I fucking love Disney, it's a brand i love and you add that with a concept i think is pretty awesome you can count me the fuck in.

Welcome to the Polygon. The four fingered Disney version of the UFC Octagon.

Not sure if I dig the look for their portal thingy, but crossing universes with Disney characters in a Toy Story 3 type game experience sounds like a good time to me. Sure I'm getting tired of all of this plastic crap, and the toys don't appear to do any of that fancy light up stuff that the Skylander's do, but it's Disney ... and you know Star Wars isn't far behind. ... and I have no will power.

If Nintendo did this with Pokemon, I'd have no money left.

Posted by LikeaSsur

This actually looks pretty decent. It's too bad it'll be going in a Skylanders route of figurines.

Posted by Capn_Crisp

It's interesting that they're even adding Disney Channel properties in there, too (Finnias and Pherb). They usually keep those separate from Disney movie properties, or so I've heard.

Posted by Sgtpierceface

Now just add Iron Man and Darth Vader and I'll get it.

Posted by RPGee

So here's what I'm getting: Skylanders playing off of love and nostalgia.

Yeah, Disney might make all the money in the world, as long as they aren't causing any copyright infringement with Toys For Bob.

I just had this realization that outside of the theme parks, those classics don't matter anymore to the kids. It's just Pirates and Pixar, which is sad to me no matter how good Pixar can be. Though I did spot Dumbo and the Pumpkin Carriage, albeit as vehicles. Sigh.

Doesn't help that they ruined the character designs by fitting them into an encompassing art style. Didn't they learn from the parks that you can put Woody next to Snow White and still have it make perfect sense? It's just Disney. It's like Nintendo, it's an intrinsic whole. This game seems to be taking some of the world's finest character designs and making everything a little edgier and a whole lot more generic. Big meh.

I don't get it, were's Drobot?

Posted by squidraid

This does look like it could be charming. I wonder how they'll handle voice acting, if at all.

I thought the Skylanders idea was cool, but I could never justify buying the figures as an adult for myself. I believe the same thing will happen here. Anyone ever thought that skylanders and now this is the ultimate form of day one on the disk DLC? The content is there, but you can't see it until you go and purchase this physical thing.

Posted by graboids

seems pretty cool..

Disney Vignocchity

Posted by rabbithearted

I want to love this, because I love Disney, but it just seems disappointing. Maybe it's because I grew up on "old school" 2D Disney, but the art style and the included characters aren't doing anything for me.

If this game incorporated a more 2D feel and had characters like Mulan, Belle, Simba, etc. I would be all over it, probably because it would have a more fantastical feel. Granted, I'm not the demographic.

Posted by SleepyDoughnut

Not gonna lie, if I was a kid I would be waaaay into this.

I agree. This game just brings that whole model one step closer to me. If they utilized the Star Wars license or made something geared more towards an adult, I would probably go nuts.

I see it as collectible figures (something I might buy anyway if it is a theme I am interested) that can be used in a game (hopefully a good game).

Glad I'm child-free, so I'll never have to clutter my house with this shit.

have to ask.... Woman free as well?

If Tron makes an appearance...maybe...just maybe I'll check it out.

Edited by mlarrabee

This is the next Kingdom Hearts, right?

EDIT: And, only if I get to kill that stupid towtruck, OK?

Posted by Red12b

hey....at least the incredibles are in something... right?

I think its more related with Disney being extremely protective of their classic intellectual properties... the last thing I remember using classic Disney characters and being somewhat subversive are the Kingdom Hearts games, and they do it less and less each time.

My 6 year-old just flipped her lid. Better start working some overtime...

Posted by MysteriousBob

Totally forgot that Monster Inc prequel was a thing.

Posted by Tesla

As an adult who likes older Disney stuff and Pixar currently, they have yet to make the game for me.

Kingdom Hearts was close with the quality, Epic Mickey with the reverence for the history. If they could roll those two games into one (minus the Square characters) or start cranking out awesome side scrollers again like The Lion King and Aladdin, that would be great.

Posted by Bourbon_Warrior

I always thought Activision was going to do this with Transformers.

You mean Bruce Boxleitner?

Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam

Is this trailer just Disney admitting that Pixar now accounts for 90% of their business?

Posted by BooDoug187

Might have to buy the Perry and Mr. Incredible figures...

One question: Will Star Wars and Marvel be part of this? If yes then I would have to buy Punisher, Deadpool, and Darth Maul

Posted by Milpool

Oh god we used all of our properties, so it's called infinity because please don't stop playing it, but we couldn't afford any of the voice actors, oh god please like our game.

Posted by MrMazz

Fuuuu I might buy some of the statues now. O man if this were Pokemon related I'd be so poor. BRING ON MARVEL THEMED ONES.

Posted by Abendlaender

Those statues look pretty ugly

@Dark_Lord_Spam: Seriously. All I kept thinking was, huh - really no sign of Mickey et al? I mean CARS ahead of Donald Duck?!
