Disney Infinity Artist Shares Unused Baze Malbus Rogue One Model

Disney Infinity Artist Shares Unused Baze Malbus Rogue One Model

Other scrapped models include characters from Moana and a big ol' Darth Vader.

Disney's contribution to the toys-to-life genre, the Disney Infinity line, met its untimely end last spring. Though the interactive plastic toys were popular (after all, the property included entries from the Marvel and Star Wars universes, as well as classic Disney characters), Disney ultimately saw fit to end the franchise and drastically downgrade its presence in the general video game marketplace.

Before Rogue One: When Games Were Filling in the History of Star Wars

Disney's decision to suddenly slam the door on the Infinity line means several planned figurines never came to be. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, for example, was supposed to get the plastic-and-microchip treatment. A couple of days ago, artist B Allen uploaded a model he rendered of Rogue One's Baze Malbus. Disney Infinity was cancelled before the Baze figure hit the production line.

B Allen's personal gallery highlights other unused Disney Infinity models he built, including Maui from Moana and a 15-inch Darth Vader.

If there's one unused Rogue One character surely there's more, right? Right. A source close to Disney Infinity's development told Kotaku that there were plans for "most of the Rebel crew, from Jyn to K2." While the playset was still far from completion, "the figures planned for it had practically been finished and were ready for production."

Too bad: Given Rogue One's box office success, its Disney Infinity line probably would've done well. Last month, Kat and Mike talked about why Rogue One appeals to movie-goers.
