GameStop has updated their official listing for the Jack Skellington Special Edition with a new release date of October 15th (as compared to October 5th).
The regular Jack Skellington figure will be released on the 5th as planned.
Here is what GameStop said in an e-mail to all of their employees (via an anonymous GameStop employee)
Though the Disney infinity Jack Skellington figure will be available for $13.99 in stores on Saturday October 5th, the Jack Skellington with display case collector’s edition is a GameStop exclusive and will be released on Tuesday October 15th for $17.99
Hopefully pre-ordering the figure on Saturday would be enough to quality for the free poster and game guide discount.
On the bright side, the official Disney Infinity YouTube channel released this video celebrating his release
