If 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.
