Thanks to a couple of articles over at VinylmationKingdom, it has come to our attention that in light of Toys ‘R’ Us having an exclusive to the Infinite Crystal line of figures, starting with Lightning McQueen, other retailers are getting into the ‘Disney Infinity’ exclusive business by way of early releases.
GameStop will have an exclusive release window for the Jack Skellington figure beginning October 5, 2013 and running through October 28. His description on the site reads as follows: ‘Boo! Jack Skellington is up to his spooktacular Halloween tricks! Bone up on the action as the creepy King of Halloween uses Jack-o-Lanterns, screams and screeches to scare off rivals. How terrifying do you feel?’ He is now available for pre-order on their website.
Not to be outdone, Walmart will have an early release for the Sheriff Woody figure, who has the added bonus of working alongside Jessie and Buzz Lightyear with the Toy Story Space playset (sold separately) when it’s released. Shipping beginning October 1, 2013, his description reads: ‘Rustle up some action with Woody, the fastest-moving cowboy in the West as he uses his shoulder charge to knock villains clean off the range. Shake the snakes outta your boots and get moving.’ Woody is now also available for pre-order.
