Disney Interactive made the ‘Disney Infinity: Toy Starter Pack’ official this morning and it will be launching November 4th for $59.99. Earlier reports had it named Toy Box Bundle Pack, but it seems that the name has been changed to reflect it being a starter pack.
The Toy Box Starter Pack will be launching on all platforms. This is just an alternate to Disney Infinity players who do not want to purchase the Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack. The software inside is the exact same. The Disney Toy Box Starter Pack does not include a play set (hence the name). You will only receive two figures, but will receive two Toy Box Game Discs (which will be availably separately from this Starter Pack for those who want to get the discs).
Here are the full contents
The Disney Infinity (2.0 Edition) video game – The Disney Infinity: Toy Box Starter Pack and Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack both include the same video game disc

In addition the Wave 1 of Disney Original Figures will debut on November 4th as well. These include Stitch, Merida, Maleficent, Aladdin, Donald, and Tinker Bell. In addition we expect Hiro and Baymax to made official as well as we get closer to release date (Disney is waiting to make the announcement until the movie Big Hero 6 is closer to hitting theaters) as you can even see them on the box.
Obviously, the Disney Originals Power Disc Packs should release November 4th as well, though no official confirmation on that yet. You can view all 40 Disney Original Power discs though at our Disney Infinity 2.0 Power Disc page!
