Disney Universe puts you inside Mickey, Donald, and Goofy

 I’m a giant Disney nerd, so not only was I bit disappointed once it came to light that Disney Universe starred blobby stem cell creatures wearing iconic character costumes - not the actual characters - I was utterly depressed by the four costumes they chose to unveil. I mean, thanks for TRON, but Mike Wazowski, Stitch, and a double represent from Tim Burton’s Hook-I mean, Alice in Wonderland? You know your company’s been around longer than ten years right?

Well, the big consolation today, is that Disney Universe has finally revealed costumes for four beloved characters that’ve been synonymous with the company for almost a century. I was so excited, I went and stuck the new character (costume) art on classic Disney animation backgrounds, ‘casue that’s how I roll: NERDY!

Above: Donald Fauntleroy Duck and Dippy Dawg!

I should also note that I spied some Lion King and Wall-E characters during a brief hands-on during E3, which are a lot more my speed. And since the game originally teased something along the lines of FORTY or so characters, Disney Universe gets to “pull a Capcom” and trickle new character (costume) details from now until its October release date. YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS! We get to demand/speculate which characters (costumes) we want to see in the game. So... I want Elliot from Pete’s Dragon and Roger Rabbit. OH, and Brer Rabbit and maybe his black friend! You’d better believe there’s still time demand your favorite characters (costumes) in the comments below.

    Yikes... I'm a big Disney nerd too Chris but this is quite depressing... I had expected the costumes to be better but this feels a bit creepy...

    Great, now I'm totally freaked out, and I just woke up.

    The little Smackboys are ugly to look at. They all look angry and mischievous, not in the good "Vintage Mickey" way.

    This looks like a taxidermist went and had a hey-day with all the iconic Disney characters. I'm more than slightly creeped out, and those faces inside the dead skins don't help at all. Good thing I'm not going to sleep any time soon.

    *there and it honestly looks as if they climb into the characters through their mouths...

    Can their be a Rocketeer Nazi costume? Or is that dlc?

    Get it! Fu*king Goofy. See 'cause Minnie Mouse is..... Aww forget it. Thanks for the article Chris.

    No you're Honor, I didn't say she was crazy, I said she was FU*KING Goofy........

    Yeah, those mouse costumes certianly come with an "Ick Factor" but I'm somewhat behind any kind of celebration of all things Disney, even if this is not exactly what I wanted.

    This is supremely creepy. I have taken several chemical showers since reading this article and am sad to report that, although my skin has been dissolved away, the icky feeling still remains.

    The Mickey/Minnie heads disturb me when I look too long.
  • jonathanaddams - August 5, 2011 8:54 p.m.

    The need to include the best Disney character ever - Vincent from "The Black Hole".
