Fans of the action-adventure video game Disney Infinity were saddened when the game was discontinued last year. The unique game pieces were cherished figures that fans loved and collected. Now the designs live on, as Disney has released a new line of action figures called Toybox, based on those beloved Disney Infinity designs.
The Toybox action figures are five inches high and designed for real world play with 14 points of articulation. The first release of the series includes characters from Disney’s main brands, Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm. Pixar fans will be pleased to see their favorite Toy Story toys represented with Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and Jessie figures. The Marvel Toybox collection contains three of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes: Thor, Iron Man, and Hulk–who comes with a bent pipe for swinging and smashing.
The Star Wars collection includes characters from The Force Awakens: Rey, Kylo Ren, and a First Order stormtrooper—a figure which never got a release under Disney Infinity—but thanks to Toybox we get to see what could have been.
The name Toybox most likely originated from the Toy Box mode gameplay on Disney Infinity, which allowed players to mix and match characters in their own worlds, creating their own unique game. Here the idea is the same, as each figure comes with a signature accessory and an integrated universal hand grip; that means those accessories can be swapped between characters. So if you’ve always wanted Buzz Lightyear to carry a lightsaber, you’re in luck! The world is yours to create.
With these designs getting a second life, it’s hopeful that Disney will be introducing brand new figures that never got a chance to be developed for Infinity. This is just the first wave of characters for Toybox, and with new figures planned for release each month, you can be sure that toys from upcoming Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars films should be making their debuts soon.
Get a closer look at the figures in the gallery below. The Toybox figures are now available exclusively at Disney stores and shopdisney.com
