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. This series have exclusive designs and have been painted and moulded using a translucent plastic moulding. They also come with upgraded abilities which help them to earn XP faster than normal characters.
You can read more about the Disney Infinity Crystal Character series right here.
Characters can be levelled up by playing through the Play Set, completing missions and earning experience and awards. Once a figure is levelled up the game's data is then saved to the figure 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 figure is then taken to a friend's house or placed on a different base, the figure will appear as 'Guest', you can continue to level up your figure and once placed on the original base the levelling progress will be synced with the user profile and the saved game data. If you are looking to share figures you can do so by choosing another game via the Start Menu. This will enable you to share one character with more than one user profile, very useful for families who may have individual user profiles for the game.
As your 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 characters is 20 (it was level 15 in Disney Infinity 1.0). You will also improve the character's statue within the Hall of Heroes once certain levels are reached.
While in-game, playing the Play Set you can alternate between different characters that belong to the same Play Set. For example, if you are half way through completing a mission within 'The Incredibles' Play Set 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 figure.
For those Disney Infinity fans looking to keep their characters in their original packaging but continue to enjoy the Disney Infinity game. You can do! The base will read the character's information through the box, meaning you never have to open the packaging.

Disney Infinity 2.0 Characters
In Disney Infinity 2.0 there will be 32 characters released, 11 Disney Infinity 2.0 originals characters & 21 Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel characters across 3 Marvel Play Sets. 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.
Many of the Disney Infinity 2.0 characters were chosen through customer feedback which was collected through a Disney Infinity poll on the official Facebook page in late 2013 - this includes Stitch, Donald Duck and the Marvel collection.
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.
