‘Disney Infinity’ ‘Frozen’ Toys, Variants and Additional Characters Leaked by Retailer

As per a thread located on DisneyInfinityFans.com, a French etailer had temporarily listed several ‘Disney Infinity’ items that had long been suspected, but had not been formally announced.

Among the items listed were toys (figures) featuring the likenesses of Elsa and Anna of Disney’s Frozen, Mickey Mouse (which we believe will be a Sorcerer’s Apprentice inspired item) and Jack Skellington. Also identified are toy packs branded for Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph (both consisting of perhaps just two characters based on the pricing). Oddly enough, a separate toy listing for Woody existed, casting doubts on the figures expected to be included in the Toy Story Space play set. An oddly named ‘girls’ pack of figures was also listed.
