A week after the shocking news about the closure of Disney Infinity, we’re back with Episode 72 because as you know, the show must go on. While last week’s show was more of a reactionary podcast, as not much information or news was available at the time of recording, this week was far more informed and far less speculative. Don’t be fooled, though. We weren’t able to make sense of this whole mess ourselves, which is why we brought on the reporter who blew the doors off the inside story of Disney Infinity’s closure - Patrick Klepek!
Patrick wrote an excellent article last week for Kotaku, detailing the inside scoop on what happened within Disney Infinity, what went wrong, and the future plans of the franchise. We figured there was no better way to relay all the information in that piece than to bring Patrick on the show to help us answer the tough questions. Not only did he further explain many of the points he made within the story, but he dropped a few more hot scoops live on the show, which at this point is exclusive info no one else has heard yet!
After chatting with Patrick for a while about Disney Infinity, collecting amiibo, and the man of who we shouldn’t speak of (Dan Ryckert), we get down to the nitty gritty and discuss the recent news in the toys-to-life genre. We discuss the final leaks of Disney Infinity, the upcoming amiibo releases, Skylanders 6 fakes, and LEGO Dimensions convention exclusives.
We then examine the #CommunityQuestion, and give away another reward for “Response of the Week.” We also have another great Inquire This! Trivia segment, where the expert was challenged with a Disney Infinity question. We tried to do the voicemail segment, but Microsoft had different ideas for that. And of course, we also answer a bunch of great emails, as always, from the Best Community Ever. All this and more on Episode 72 of the Toys For Games ‘Cast!
