In addition to the Annual Passholder exclusive Mr. Toad 3″ Vinylmation figure being released at the Disneyland Resort on August 27, the Toy Story collection will also be making its debut at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World at D-Street in the Downtown Disney district. The Mr. Toad 3″ vinylmation will be available to annual passholders at Walt Disney World on August 29.
Toy Story Playland opened earlier this week at Disneyland Paris and the Resort has just published the following package video covering the grand opening. In addition to the ribbon cutting ceremony, the video includes time-lapse photography of the area’s construction (as well as the construction of Buzz, pictured left) and on-board videos of attractions such as RC Racer and Toy Soldiers Parachute Drop.
Amazon.com has now listed a ten disc set for the Toy Story 3 trilogy to be released on November 2, the same day the film is being released on its own. Don’t let the ten disc description fool you, however, it appears to just simply refer to the 3 disc Toy Story (Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy), 3 disc Toy Story 2 (Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy) and 4 disc Toy Story 3 (2 Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy).

With record-breaking box office tallies around the world, Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 has become the highest-grossing animated film of all time taking in more than $920 million at the global box office to date. This weekend, the critically acclaimed Toy Story 3 is expected to become Disney’s second film to cross the $400 million domestic threshold and currently ranks as the 4th highest grossing film in company history globally.
As we previously announced, you can bring home the ‘#1 animated film of the year,’ Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 on Disney Blu-ray and DVD on November 2, 2010. This is confirmed by Amazon.com which now lists the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy (not displayed here), Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and DVD editions available for pre-order. Each of the Blu-ray sets consists of two Blu-ray discs.
Although it’s not listed as of yet, we do anticipate at least one more edition of the film to become available, that of the BD 3D/Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, but that one is curiously missing at this time. Reportedly there will be no 3D Blu-ray edition of the film as previously announced.
According to a photo of an in-store retail advertisement posted on The Digital Bits, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will be releasing Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3 on Disney Blu-ray and DVD on November 2. Nothing has been officially confirmed, but it’s hard to debate with a photo (at least one that hasn’t been modified). This would place the film one week ahead of the rumored release date for Finding Nemo of November 9.
