As we have covered a number of times on Dis411, there are weekly contests where users are tasked with the creation of a themed Toy Box. The “Disney Infinity Toy Box TV: The Official Weekly Web Show” compiles the top 5 Toy Boxes for players to download. These competitions have helped Disney identify the top Toy Box artists who are being invited to participate in this year’s event.
