We’ve been wondering if there would be any exclusive relationships for Disney Infinity, and today Toys “R” Us announced that it will be the exclusive location for Disney Infinity fans to find characters from the Infinity Crystal Series™ which is an assortment of exclusive, collectible figures that have enhanced in-game abilities.
Toys “R” Us is promising special events for Disney Infinity. As an example, on Saturday, September 7, all Toys“R” Us stores nationwide will host a Disney Infinity Power Disc Trade event from 12 noon to 2pm, giving kids the opportunity to exchange their own Disney Infinity Power Discs with other fans and receive special offers on Disney and Disney Infinity products. Likewise, starting in September, customers will find dedicated Disney Infinity feature shops at the front of all Toys“R” Us stores across the country, featuring a combination of figures, Power Discs, accessories and more.
Disney Infinity is launching with an initial line of 18 collectible interactive figures and 21 Power Discs, including those found only at Toys“R” Us. To help fans build their Disney Infinity collections, Toys“R” Us will offer the largest assortment of Disney Infinity products available and is planning to open early on Sunday, August 18, 2013, for the initial release. Also, at midnight on Sunday, August 18, you will have the ability to browse and shop all Disney Infinity products – including exclusive items – online at Toysrus.com/DisneyInfinity. Orders can be placed for pickup in-store on Sunday, ensuring customers are able to get the items they want on launch day.
The following are two Disney Infinity items that will be available only at Toys“R” Us stores in the U.S. and Toysrus.com at launch:
