Disney Interactive Studios is going BIG with its two top game releases this holiday season, today confirming that both Epic Mickey for Wii and Tron: Evolution for PS3 and Xbox 360 (versions are also in development for DS, PC, PSP and Wii) will be available in special edition box sets alongside their standard edition counterparts. Special editions that sure will go nice with those collectible controllers Disney also has PDP working on for Epic Mickey and Tron.

Toys ‘R Us actually jumped the gun on the whole Epic Mickey deal, as numerous sites picked up on a leaked retailer listing for the product over the weekend. But just to make things officially official, the Epic Mickey Collector’s Edition will include a 5″ Mickey figurine made of vinyl, a pair of Wii console skins with matching Wii remote faceplate, a bonus DVD with behind-the-scenes footage and a nice, big, decorative box to stow it all in. It’ll cost $70, compared to $50 for the standard edition. Retailers list Epic Mickey for a November 1st launch, but Disney has not yet confirmed an official street date.

As for the Tron: Evolution Collector’s Edition, it is even more extravagant, if you can believe it. The $130 CE, again available only for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, will come with a replica light cycle model crafted by Sideshow Collectibles and a sexy display case with a built-in storage drawer housing the game. A tad pricey for sure, but certainly a collectible for hardcore Tron fans to go nuts over. Tron: Evolution will be released on December 7th, 10 days prior to the theatrical debut of Tron: Legacy on December 17th.

Any takers out there? I’m tempted to nab the Epic Mickey set, but I think one collector’s edition will be enough for me this holiday season.
