‘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.

‘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.
