Toy Story is easily one of the most popular franchises at Disney, so it is only fitting that the series would receive its very own play set for Disney Infinity. Plans to release a play set for the huge property were announced at the D23 Expo in August. Now, we have more details and many more images featuring Woody, Buzz, Jessie, and the rest of the gang. After the break, take a look at a collection of new images from the play set, watch a video delving into the set, and find out when you can pick one up!
Avalanche Software, the developer responsible for Disney Infinity, based the idea of the Toy Box mode in the game on the corresponding mode in the Toy Story 3 video game, which the team developed in 2010. The open-ended mode added an incredible amount of replay value to the Toy Story game, and is now a core feature of Disney Infinity. The Toy Box mode in the Toy Story 3 game actually had a western theme but Avalanche is changing it up for Disney Infinity by giving the play set a fresh space theme. The title of the play set? Toy Story in Space!
The official description of the play set is below:
The Toy Story in Space Play Set is the sixth Play Set to be released for Disney Infinity and features Buzz Lightyear and Jessie in the pack, with Woody sold separately. Players will have the ability to defend the new colony and friends by unlocking new Space Ranger equipment. The Toy Story in Space Play Set introduces hoverpacks, jetpacks, laser blasters, goo blasters, new mounts and more into the Toy Box mode.
