The first ever ‘Disney Infinity Toy Box Summit’ has been announced by Disney Interactive and will be held August 15th to 17th in Salt Lake City, Utah. Disney Interactive announced the event two days ago on the 27th.
The competition will pit the best of the best from around the world to create the ultimate Toy Box. The announcement from Disney Interactive read “This fan appreciation event will pit top Toy Box creative artists from around the world to partake in a super-powered Toy Box competition, the best creations will then be leveraged during the game’s fall launch.”
For those who have seen some of the creations people have already made, there truly is some amazing creations. Equally there are some terrible ones. The summit will highlight the truly creative ideas of these ‘fan-artists’ and three lucky attendees will have the chance to join Disney Infinity’s Video Contest, where the artists will create Toy Boxes based on their favourite Disney films. What’s more is that five of the associate community level designers from Disney Interactive will act as mentors for participants. You couldn’t really ask for a better mentor than that.
The event will also show off Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes. With a hands-on look at the game, a round table discussion session with the developers and even a tour of the studio it sounds like a pretty good time to be had of fans who attend the event.
As you can see in the picture above, a real good first look at Maleficent can be seen. You may remember back in May we were teased with the shadowy outline of her via Instagram. You can also see Merida from the Disney Pixar hit film ‘Brave’… riding a bike. Classic Disney Infinity. These are just two of the new characters we can expect to see in Disney Infinity 2.0
What other characters would you like to see and have you seen any Toy Boxes that have stood out from the rest? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
