4.0 out of 5 stars Hope to help end some confusion..., December 27, 2013
By 
This review is from: DISNEY INFINITY Play Set Pack - Toy Story Play Set (Accessory)
First of all - excellent game, has kept the kiddos busy and they really love it...

Enter the parental confusion...play sets, toy box. figurines oh my
Playsets: necessary to enter story mode where you are playing in the figurines world ie: you need that little crystal-looking statue to get there and it is not included with individual figurines
Toybox: alternate mode of playing where you can create things...different figurines have different playing options there.
Figurines: sold as individual pieces or in pairs (Frozen sisters), these complement characters you already own in Story mode and can enter their worlds. (Remember only people from that world can enter their world - no cross world visiting) OR you can use them independently in Toy box mode and everybody can play together depending on your gaming system.

to date the Playsets available that I have found are:
. the starter pack with the worlds of : Monster University, Metropolis (The Incredibles) and The Carribean (from Pirates)
the Cars world
the Toy Story world
the Lone Ranger world

There are many figurines available that I have not found have their corresponding world available yet (12/2013) I am hoping that Disney will make these worlds available soon and that I won't have to repeat purchasing figurines to get that precious little crystal world holding device (cause I won't) :)

So buyer, beware - read your packaging carefully - know what you have, where you can go and what you're expecting to be able to do with it. ie: if you have wii - remember only 1 can play in world mode at a time and only 2 can play in toy box mode at a time. etc... know what your gaming system allows :)

Good explanation. Took me a while to figure this out myself. Wish I had read your review- would have been faster. I am curious to know how many of these "toy box" orphans (figures without a playset) will eventually get a playset of their own. I am hoping that they all will, and that the crystal will be available for purchase separately (...wishful thinking?) I would even settle for buying new (unreleased) characters with the crystal. I am with you about not buying characters twice, which is why I have avoided buying characters that don't have an existing playset so far. Maybe if there is a downloadable digital key.... Disney will probably go for the money grab and just make you buy everything twice to get the crystal. Prove me wrong Disney!!!!

For the figurines who do not have a specific toy worlds to play in, IE: Anna, Elsa, Wreck-it-Ralph, Venellope and Jack Skellington, they can be used in player created worlds which you can download as well as the general toy box itself.

Thanks for your comment. I wish I had known sooner. I bought the "DISNEY INFINITY FROZEN ANNA ELSA Toy Box Play Set" for the XBOX 360 fully expecting to be able to play with my daughter as the two characters in Toy Box mode AND to find a Frozen adventure. Although the first is true, the second is not. There is no "Frozen" world, except for a couple mini games.

I was confused too when I first started buying Infinity figures! I bought a toy box set and some other guys from the same movie to go with it and thought we were we were good to go... wrong! I learned what Play set and Toy box meant quickly after that lol. This is such an expensive game to play, but my boys love it and get so excited when they get a new figure! The Easter Bunny is going to be loved by the boys this year lol

You have all the playsets that are currently available at the moment. The other characters are just toybox characters. They are working on a Disney Infinity 2 that will incorporate more worlds, but for now they can not have any more worlds in the system.

how do you know they cannot have more worlds? With DLC they should be able to add on and on as long as you have the storage space.

Good post except for one thing. You can play two characters in the various world modes on all systems except for maybe the first Wii. So two in the Toy Box mode, and two in the World mode.
