Disney Infinity Crystal Characters
In addition to the original stylised Disney Infinity Characters, there is an exclusive range of Crystal Characters which are being released through Toys R' Us in the USA and mainly Amazon and Game in the UK. This started with the Lightning McQueen Crystal Character which you can read about here. The Disney Infinity Crystal Character series have exclusive designs and have been painted and moulded using a translucent plastic moulding. The Crystal Characters also come with upgraded abilities which help them to earn XP faster than normal Disney Infinity Characters.

Disney Infinity Characters - Levelling Up
Disney Infinity characters can be levelled up by playing through the Disney Infinity Playset, completing missions and earning experience and awards. Once a character is levelled up the game's data is then saved to the Disney Infinity character enabling you to play with friends and retain all of the character data.
Once you have purchased the Disney Infinity Starter Pack or individual characters, as soon as you place them on to your Disney Infinity base the game will automatically take ownership of the figure for the Disney account which is currently loaded in-game. If the Disney Infinity figure is then taken to a friend's house or placed on a different Disney Infinity base, the figure will appear as 'Guest', you can continue to level up your figure and once placed on the original Disney Infinity base the levelling progress will be synced with the user profile and the saved game data. If you are looking to share Disney Infinity figures you can do so by choosing another Disney Infinity game via the Start Menu. This will enable you to share one Disney Infinity character with more than one user profile, very useful for families who may have individual user profiles for the game.
As your Disney Infinity characters are levelled up, new abilities will become available and each time the character is levelled you will be given one free spin to use in the Toy Box Vault, the maximum level for Disney Infinity characters is 15. You will also improve the character's statue within the Hall of Heroes once certain levels are reached.
Disney Infinity Characters - Swapping Figures
While in-game, playing the Disney Infinity Playset you can alternate between different Disney Infinity characters that belong to the same Play Set. For example, if you are half way through completing a mission within 'The Incredibles' Playset you can take Mr Incredible off the Disney Infinity base and swap him with another 'The Incredibles' character such as Dash, Violet or Mrs Incredible to continue the mission. All coins and experience are collected and carried over to the new Disney Infinity figure.
Disney Infinity Characters - Collector's Information
For those Disney Infinity fans looking to keep their Disney Infinity characters in their original packaging but continue to enjoy the Disney Infinity game. You can do! The Disney Infinity base will read the character's information through the box, meaning you never have to open the packaging.

All of the Marvel characters have been officially announced, however we are currently waiting for an announcement regarding the final 2 Disney Infinity 2.0 originals characters, all we know at this point in time is that one of the unannounced characters are female and John Vignocchi's favourite. As well as the 32 confirmed 2.0 characters, Disney's Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey will be available as the final Crystal character later this year.

Skill Trees & Character Classes
One of the major updates in Disney Infinity 2.0 is the three separate character classes which creates a different game style when switching characters, a very important focus point for Disney Interactive during the development of 2.0.
These three classes are agility, brawler & range - each character can be distinguished by one of these character classes. For example, Black Widow is classified as agility and Hawkeye is classified as range.
These character classes allow us to move on to the second biggest update in 2.0 which is the skill tree. You can now choose how you want to level up your Disney Infinity 2.0 characters simply by using the character skill tree to choose an upgrade path this will include options such as added health, increased strength, new combo-attacks and much more.
