GameStop nabs Disney Infinity Jack Skellington figure

A new Disney Infinity figure, Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas, will be available as a timed exclusive through GameStop. Starting on October 5, all brick-and-mortar locations in the US will sell Jack and almost 100 locations will have Nintendo representatives on-hand to demo the game to curious shoppers. The first 50 sold in each store that Saturday will also walk out with a free poster.

Disney Infinity launched in August and uses a physical base not unlike Skylanders to marry toys with a video game. By placing the figurine on the base along with "Power Discs," the character is activated and transported into the game's virtual toy box.

In our review of Disney Infinity, we ultimately found the experience to be enjoyable for both kids (we're kids at heart) and adults. Disney Infinity is currently available on the Nintendo Wii, Wii U, 3DS, Xbox 360 and PS3.
