Disney Infinity
Phineas and Agent P Toy Box Set

By Jorge Figueiredo - April 18th, 2014

phineas-1

Each and every time that we play Disney Infinity, we pay a visit to the Hall of Heroes to check our progress. For a while now, two spots remained empty – the spots belonging to Phineas and Agent P. Regardless of how much fun Disney Infinity is, those gaping holes did make us feel a little wistful. As of last week, however, these spots became occupied by bronze statues of the two zany heroes. As the final additions to the first run of Disney Infinity, these two figures bring goofy fun, espionage, and science into the mix (not to mention two boosters if you buy the Toy Box set)!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Marvel Legends Platinum Figure

I’m off to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier tonight, so while I’m gone, check out this cool Marvel Legends Platinum Captain America figure that Hasbro sent to us to check out. Out of all of the current Captain America figures that I have seen, this one definitely takes the cake as the most realistic-looking one. Dressed up in his outfit from the Winter Soldier movie, Steve Rogers makes for an imposing action figure for play – or for display.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Flying Shield

Captain America, the super-soldier from the Marvel Universe, is a tough customer. With his augmented strength and speed, Cap is definitely far more than human. Of course, unlike other superheroes, Steve Rogers is not bullet-proof, and requires some sort of protection that will not hamper his agility. Luckily, he carries a one-of-a-kind Vibranium shield that can be used for both defense and offence. Hasbro has created a flying disc that resembles Cap’s shield, and it can be worn!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier has dropped into theatres, and it looks pretty cool. Hasbro has released some toys to accompany Marvel’s latest film, and they sent us a few different ones to check out. A few days ago, we talked about the Blast ‘N Go Assault Cycle; in today’s article, we look at the Marvel Captain America Super Soldier Gear Shockwave Blast Captain America figure.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Blast ‘N Go – Assault Cycle Vehicle

Captain America: The Winter Soldier looms tall in movie theaters. I enjoyed the first film a lot more than I thought I would (it turned me into a Cap convert), and the trailers for this second film paint an awesome picture. Hasbro has some cool Captain America toys for your kids (or you) to check out, should you feel the need to grab some movie-themed goodness to continue the adventures at home. Hasbro sent us a Blast ‘N Go Assault Cycle (quick-launch), and Smallest Thumbs and I checked it out. Here’s what we found.

Infinite Possibilites
It Started With a Mouse…

When Smallest Thumbs and I first started playing Disney Infinity, we enjoyed the introduction, which was presented by none other than Mickey Mouse, the cornerstone of the Disney empire. Wandering around the Hall of Heroes within the game, we saw that there was a podium for Mickey, which meant that he was going to be released as a figure for the game. Well, the time has finally come for Mickey to step up to take his place in the Toy Box! Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey has come to Disney Infinity!

Infinite Possibilites
Princess Power

The last few figures that have been released for Disney Infinity have been a hit with Smallest Thumbs – but not necessarily for the reasons that you might think. Sure, most of them are female characters: Elsa, Anna, Rapunzel and Vanellope (not pictured here); and this might possibly make it easier for her to relate to them (you might think). However, there have been a few female characters already made available to comsumers (Mrs. Incredible, Violet, Jessie and Holly), so it can’t just be the fact that they are girls. So, rather than guess, I just asked Smallest Thumbs why she liked them. The answer was simple: because their powers are awesome.
