‘Monsters University’ Blu-ray with Free ‘Disney Infinity’ Figure from Walmart

'Monsters University' 'Disney Infinity' Gift Set from WalmartIf you haven’t yet purchased both the Mike Wazowski and Randall ‘Randy’ Boggs figures for ‘Disney Infinity’ yet, first: what’s wrong with you? You must feel like Charlie Bucket from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory; second: don’t. At least not if you plan on purchasing Monsters University when it’s out on Blu-ray October 29, 2013 and you don’t plan on buying the 3D version or care about digital copy.

That’s because Walmart is offering exclusive gift sets for the 2-disc Blu-ray combo-pack which includes a free ‘Disney Infinity’ figure. That is, basically for the same price as the separate 2 disc edition of the film, you get the Blu-ray plus one of the figures: either in Mike Wazowski or Randy Boggs flavors.

Walt Disney Studios has provided us with a new hi-res still from its upcoming feature, Saving Mr. Banks, which has been added to our gallery of images from the film below.

When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ Mary Poppins, he made them a promise — one that he didn’t realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney’s plans for the adaptation.
