The lights are on
We spotted some new listings for Disney Infinity figures and playsets this morning. If correct, we should be seeing new additions soon.
GameStop (disclosure: GameStop is Game Informer's parent company) has listings for the following items:
We're expecting that there will be a Woody figure released alongside the Toy Story playset, but there isn't a product listing for it yet.
Our TakeNone of these listings reveal new characters, but it's nice to know when we'll be getting them. It's going to be important for Disney to educate retailers about the figures that can only be used in Toy Box mode.
Up until Jack Skellington is out, every character has a home inside one of the playsets. It'll be fun to use the Pumpkin King, especially once power discs for his terrain and sky become available. Here's hoping Zero joins the cast, too.

I work at GameStop and these have been in our system for a long time. (At least Jack and Toy Story. Also, Woody is set for the same date, which as of last time I checked, was October 1 in our system.
don't have this game, but if I did, I would go with the toy story set. My favorite childhood movie xD
You know, it seems like Jack Skellington should be useable in the Monsters Inc setting. He has similar goals and capabilities after all.
Jack Skellington, the greatest character of all.
WHAT? That's so lame, I couldn't wait to play in a new nightmare story and now I hear this.
hrm, I don't know much about infinity but I do hope seeing as how Disney is now bent on conning the kids that can barely read with stiff DLC materials (which apparently don't have much SP content other than building), that they release better content with more meat other than just have unlockable items and bundles for the tox box at 15 bucks a statue.
I almost ant Disney Infinity just for Jack Skelington
Interesting thought. I do like the look of that Nightmare before Christmas one.
"None of these listings reveal new characters, but it's nice to know when we'll be getting them."
There won't be any new characters until the next game. This is it.
Seems like a crime to not have the two characters that come with the Toy Story playset be Woody and Buzz, but the argument can be made that they wanted it to come with a male and female character.
Just waiting on the Mickey ones. Only reason for me to buy anything related to this game is that I have a collector in the family who picks up anything Mickey.
