A new line of Toy Box figures are available now at the The Disney Store, which kicks off Disney related characters including Mickey Mouse with Pluto and Jack Skeleton with Jack’s dog Zero from The Nightmare Before Christmas. The Toy Box figures are based on the Disney: Infinity game designs, and are re-engineered and articulated. In the game, franchises could interact throughout all of Disney’s properties such as Marvel, Star Wars and Disney/Pixar characters. Fans of that game can now collect highly detailed and articulated figures based on those designs.
Recently, the Disney Store announced that this line is expanding to oversized characters including The Hulkbuster, as well as vehicles such as a car for Spider-Man, a TIE Fighter with TIE Pilot from Star Wars, and Han Solo and Chewbacca with the Millennium Falcon. These new updates include Frozone from Incredibles, a Toy Story 4 pack, a new Hulk figure, Thanos, Grey Hulk, Yoda, Ralph and Vanellope from Wreck It Ralph, and Baymax and Hiro from Big Hero 6. Additional characters have yet to be confirmed.
