Now going through the discs and characters in the Hall of Heroes and various sources on the internet, I have been able to figure out the Next Group of characters coming out.
They are as follow:
Woody - You can already pre=order for delivery October 1st via Walmart
Jack Skellington - You can pre-order Jack from Game Stop or October 5th delivery
Jessie - From Toy Story
Venellope Von Schweetz
Anna - From Frozen
Elsa (The Snow Queen) - From Frozen
Mickey Mouse Sorcerer*
Jessie and Buzz are rumored to be released in an adventure pack (Adventure has been rumored Toy Story in space)
Anna and Elsa are rumored to be released in a double pack that comes with power discs.
There is also rumor of a 'Girls Power Pack' that will include Venllope, Rapunzel and Violet.
* Mickey has already been released at D23 last month but was a limited release of 5000. They are available on eBay for around $125. The regular release of Sorcerer Mickey will be in early 2014.
Looking through the Hall of Heroes, I have compiled a list of discs that are currently listed. Comparing the Disney Infinity Website listing of discs vs the number in the Hall, they do not match. The Disney Infinity site lists 34 Discs for series 2 and 3 while the Hall of Heroes only shows 33. This does not include the Toys R us exclusive discs that are coming out.
A theory I have on the disc count difference is, it may be possible that there is one final disc that will be placed in the center of the fountain of the hall of Heroes. Now this is just a guess but it is the only spot available that i see for another disc.
The list of Discs as seen in the Hall of Heroes is below.

The website has a total of 14 toys listed and the Hall of Heroes has 15. So one 'Rare' disc will be a toy. The DI website has 8 customization discs listed and the Hall of Heroes has 10, so there are 2 more 'Rare' Discs. Lastly, the website has 9 ability discs listed and the Hall of Heroes has only 8. Here is where the difference in numbers shows up. Being there is once 'Rare' unaccounted for, it is possible that this is the group that it will be in. According to the DI website it shows it will either be a customization or toy disc though. With the disc count not matching, it leaves us with some questions. Why are the numbers different? Why did Disney show both series 2 and 3 in the Hall of Heroes but only series 2 for the characters? Are they trying to throw us off for some reason? Will there be more discs in the end than what they have listed?
Stemming from the last question, as i have said in my previous blog post, could there be more? Hopes and thoughts tell us yes there could be more. A lot more. This could be a huge cash cow for Disney. The possibilities are endless. Especially now that they own Lucas films and Marvel (granted the Marvel issues is still touchy being that Universal still has some rights to some of the Marvel stuff). Is there a future for Starwars, or Marvel related worlds? One would hope they would go on from series 3 into series 4+. The possibilities are endless and could go into many releases into many years from now.
From what i understand, the Toys R Us exclusive discs are to be released randomly and I haven't found a definite timeline for them. However, from what I am reading, if you didn't get a Mike's New Car disc or Crystal Mcqueen you may be looking at a trade or eBay to get these. It sounds like they are sold out and the next packs coming out from TRU will be the next in their series. For the Power Disc it will be Tron - User Control and I am unsure as to which will be the next crystal character released from Toys R Us. If you need to make trades and have extras you can try infinitrader.net. This site was created specifically to make trades for your infinity discs and already has a lot of members ready to trade.
One last note. On Sept. 7th there will be a trading event at all Toy's R Us stores nationwide. It will begin at 12pm and only go until 2pm. This will be another opportunity to trade your power discs if you have any to trade or to get ones you still need or want. It is rumored that this will be the day that the next TRU exclusives will be released. There is also talk that the buy one pack get one pack for $1.00 deal for power discs will be back also.
So Let us know your thoughts. What do you think of DI so far and what are your thoughts or hopes for the future?
