I received the skeleton figure yesterday as well. As others have said, its not carded, just in a plastic tray inside one of the "crate-styled" mailer boxes. My box arrived smashed beyond comprehension, with one end basically entirely open - but the figure/throne were just fine, so no big deal. It is a pretty nice figure overall though, and there's more to it than I expected. I don't feel "ripped off" with the shipping/handling on this one, as it really couldn't have fit in the basic Indy line.
