Tomorrow is a day that most of us have been looking forward to for a while… the US release of the Jack Skellington Toy Box figure at GameStop locations nationwide. To celebrate this, GameStop is promoting Disney Infinity Day. What can we expect? 1. Jack Skellington Toy Box Figure– $13.99
2. Jack Skellington Disney Infinity Poster– FREE (first 50 customers)
For the first 50 customers who purchase a Disney Infinity item tomorrow, you get this awesome poster, roughly 24″ x 36″ in dimensions. NOTE: Some customers were given the poster when they pre-ordered or were told they would automatically get one with their pre-order. As far as I can tell, this is just individual stores doing their own thing.
3. Exclusive Disney Infinity Strategy Guide– $19.99
The strategy guide available tomorrow will feature Jack on the cover. Exclusive, yes. Worth buying another copy? Unless there is something new in the guide (like the Toy Story Play Set), I won’t be putting any money down for it. Still, if you don’t have the guide already, the fact that you can get $10 off the price of $19.99 when you purchase Jack or a starter set on Saturday is a great deal.
4. Nightmare Before Christmas T-Shirts– $14.99
5. 30% Extra In-Store Credit when you trade games, accessories, systems, smartphones, or tablets toward any Disney Infinity purchase.
Now, there are conflicting reports that the GameStop exclusive display case with Jack Skellington, shown below, will be available tomorrow. Certain customers calling their stores have been told they will be there. However, other GameStop employees are saying they will arrive towards the middle of October instead, being that they are being assembled at a third party vendor and delayed. I have a feeling it is the latter case, but we might be surprised.
From what I can tell, GameStop seems to have a better handle on the early release of Jack. Let’s hope that tomorrow doesn’t turn into another debacle like the Walmart early release of Woody went earlier this week.
