Back in August, Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars launched with “Twilight of the Republic,” which was a PT-themed playset. The figures that were released at that time included Anakin, Ahsoka, Yoda, and Obi-Wan. However, Darth Maul was nowhere to be seen. I was fortunate enough to get a Maul figure during the E23 Expo thanks to Disney Interactive. The sculpt is absolutely fantastic and it’s truly Maul in all his glory:
Today Disney Interactive announced that finally, Darth Maul–as well as three other new playable characters and a brand new Power Disc Pack–are available for Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition.
I really love Maul’s sculpt: he looks menacing, his robes flare out dramatically, and the paint application is perfect.
Today’s launch represents the fourth wave of new offerings for Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition and includes the first Marvel characters for Disney Infinity 3.0, Hulkbuster and Ultron, as well as one of the most highly anticipated Star Wars™ characters, Darth Maul. Also available today are new products for Disney•Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur including a Spot figure and themed Power Disc Pack. Check out additional images of today’s releases in the gallery:
NEW CHARACTERS AND POWER DISCS AVAILABLE NOW FOR
DISNEY INFINITY 3.0 EDITION
Ultron, Hulkbuster, Darth Maul and Spot Figures and The Good Dinosaur Power Disc Pack Launch at Retail Stores Nationwide
GLENDALE, Calif. – (November 3, 2015) – Today, Disney Interactive announced that four new playable characters and a brand new Power Disc Pack are available for Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition. Today’s launch represents the fourth wave of new offerings for Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition and includes the first Marvel characters for Disney Infinity 3.0, Hulkbuster and Ultron, as well as one of the most highly anticipated Star Wars™ characters, Darth Maul. Also available today are new products for Disney•Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur including a Spot figure and themed Power Disc Pack.
Character Highlights for All New Figures Include:
ULTRON: Ultron, the world’s most advanced robot and maniacal Super Villain, will stop at nothing to destroy humanity and their protectors, the mighty Avengers. With the ability to summon duplicate robotic sentries, the character uses magnetic pull followed by a powerful blast of energy to defeat his foes.
HULKBUSTER: Hulkbuster, the mega-sized armor created by Tony Stark, combines the incredible force of Hulk with the tech capabilities of Iron Man. A brute tank, Hulkbuster’s powerful combo attacks are great at dealing with nearby groups of enemies while his Thruster Dash makes up for his lack of overall speed, allowing him to close distance with targets easily. Missiles, thrusters for flight and a suit-integrated tractor beam complement this powerhouse.
DARTH MAUL: The deadly Darth Maul uses his double-bladed Lightsaber™ and dark side Force™ powers in death-defying duels against his enemies.
SPOT: Spot is a wild, tough and tenacious human boy who thinks and acts like a dog. Using his hands, feet and teeth he keeps enemies at bay.

· Butch – No Toy Box adventure is too big for Butch, the toughest T. rex you’ll ever meet.
