So I picked this up today. 
1. Has anyone seen this before ?
2. What do we think it is, a display only box, some type of limited pack, etc. ?

Wow. I figured it was a retail's store way to repackage a loose game. I would believe this but the side looks too legit. That's crazy. Would love to know more about it. Check the contents. Is the game cart any different? Manual?

I only found the empty box.  Nothing inside it.

It is very well made and printed. It appears that everything except the blue matches the regular size release of the game.

T-239046 on the alien side matches the assembled in USA Cardboard normal size box that I have (From a different purchase)  The normal size box I have is the slideout cardboard kind.

The UPC & ISBN are different.
Normal Size UPC - 071272-5110-68
Big Box UPC - 07127-5620-08
Normal Size ISBN 1-57350-035-6
Big Box ISBN 1-57350-050-X

The inside of the box is white.
It has a monogram for "Wynalda Litho" 95 on the bottom flap

I would guess it was a store display. Although if it is it is a pretty stupid one as you'd think they'd have a little spiel or something about it other than just the picture of the box on a bigger box.

Almost as cool as that Bevis and Butthead bigbox minus the t-shirt and poster. Who knows it may have had some goodies stuffed in there at some point.

Ditto, I have seen it before but never with any additional goodies, I have a feeling it was a Disney World exclusive box. I cannot confirm this but pretty certain. Great item either way.

I've posted some pictures from the one I had purchase last year.

Here is one with the content : http://img1.jpegbay.com/gallery/0...
Can't be sure about where it was sold but like Dyer60 said, maybe it was in a Disney' store

This is the third time I've ever seen one, the first was sealed & I bought the second

Thank You for Sharing !

I made sure to save a copy of your picture, my box was just the empty box.  I wonder if I can find that cardboard at the local store....

Managed to pick one of these up factory sealed, always wondered if there was more than just the game inside, so there is only one way to find out.......





As expected nothing but the game!!!!!

I have uploaded an album showing the seal if anyone is interested: https://imgur.com/a/54GGE8L...

Still a bit of a mystery.

Haha, it took over four years to find out what was within. Definitely better late than never. What an anticlimactic post that was.

I must say, that's a bit anti-climatic, but the good news is Everharm should be able to complete his empty box very easily.

Based in the US. Got a cheap BIN price on it $18.99, shipping was more expensive!

@nieds16 You are right a complete anti climax but good news for pepole looking to complete a copy.

Hey Dyer, can you help me figure out which version of Toy Story was included in the big box?

Now that you, Everharm, and Johnny all have a copy, I've added it to my spreadsheet, and it happens to be the 6th (!) Toy Story release I've recorded. But I suspect this "6th" release contains one of the other 5 releases.

Can you tell if it is a flip top or slide box? My guess is that it would be a slide box. And then if it doesn't have a Ballistic sticker on the back then its either the 1st or 2nd release in my spreadsheet. And the only way I know how to tell those apart is based on the instruction manual.

I think someone noted a difference on the spines of the games, something with army men ,but I can't remember

Is this what the kids are calling them these days? Back in my day we never had any of this mumbo-jumbo nonsense.

Yeh sure, it's a slide box, no Ballistic sticker and the manual has a colour cover. Any other details you need? I could get some pics if you need them.

No I also own a 2nd big box open copy which is mint.

I have kept this game sealed. So my report was based on the other, although to be a 100% sure I suppose the only real way to confirm is open the new one!

Heh, I'm sure that the report from your other big box is sufficient!

I imagine if it was mint that is probably had the reg card, which as far as I know is the only insert
