I have one of those too.  May have to stop and look myself on the way past tomorrow...

Maybe John Madden will help me find them while I'm there.



Oh who am I kidding?  He'll just tell me about Brett Favre ruining the NFL by retiring.  :-[

Ace is The Place.  I'll hit my local hardware store tomorrow.

We've got one here locally as well, and I'm tempted to stop in and check today after work as well.  The $9.99 price isn't great, but like Matt said, I'd probably pick up one just for the heck of it.

Nothing for me either.

Me either.  Did the DPCI thing at two stores--one only had the Adventure Heroes, and the other had the basic figs, deluxe figs, vehicles, and Adventure Heroes (and probably most of the other stuff, too, if I had checked)--but I didn't feel like bugging anybody to get me the stuff.

Also checked an Ace Hardware (which did have a little toy section in the very back), but didn't see anything.  I did run in to John Madden, though, so that was neat.

I tried a TRU as well and they had them but wouldnt bring them out. They knew about the May 1st release date.

I checked ACE Hardware today, no luck. It was kind of funny; the toy section was an endcap in the lamps section with walkie-talkies, squirt guns, Simpsons keychains, and duct tape.  :P

I didn't even see John Madden. :-\

You dirty dawg.  Congrats. 

If you have time, can you snap some closer up shots of the Indy figures heads.  I'm curious to see if your production stuff looks as weak as some of the other photos have.

Was he a real dick about Favre and all that?  Did he tell you, "And that's what hardware's all about!"?

Are the Crystal Skull figures a different assortment?  Or are they mixed in with the Raiders figures?

Evenflow, did you have to tip the Target worker who brought you that stuff?

BTW, are the numbers in this thread?

Thanks for sharing the find Evenflow, very cool...

It's funny how getting the O66 sets was such a pain and yet some stores will let something like these out.  Go figure.

Anyway, I thought the KotCS figures were different assortments, similar to how Star Wars figures are packaged for distribution, and maybe they'll be mixed together then in refreshers down the road.  I admit I'm not much up on case assortments for either line though, generally.
