I came home this morning to find my Crystal Skeleton figure waiting in my mailbox.  It's significantly larger than I expected it to be, standing almost double the height of the other Indy figures, and has really good articulation (I was honestly thinking it would be in a permanent sitting position), with SW-style ball shoulders, elbows, and head, 25th Joe-style double jointed knees, ball-jointed hips, and swivel waist and head.  The box is HUGE compared to other mail-away figures; the figure and throne are held inside by a plastic tray and easily removable rubber bands.  My box was a little dinged up, but the figure and throne were in perfect condition.





does it come carded, or whit box with plastic baggie? Do you have pictures for the rest of us to see?

My Skeleton came today!  It's a really nice piece.

It's not carded, there's a plastic tray in the box and the throne and skeleton are packed separately in it.  You can take them both out and put them back in without damaging the tray, which is a nice bonus.

I should be sending off for another one here in a day or so.  Still haven't received my Ark yet.

I got my first of 3 Skeletons. I did not expect this figure to be this big, a very cool figure indeed.

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.

sucks that the figure isn't carded, but then that means I have 4 of them and I may buy Jeff's extra one he has.

My Crystal Skeleton arrived today. Nice surprise, as I wasn't expecting it.

Overall it's a very cool figure, nice to see a relatively skinny figure get a lot of articulation.

I've still yet to mail in for mine. Just been lazy and now I'm away at college. I'll send it in next time I go home.

My Ark came last night. It's a pretty impressive piece.  I knew it was going to big but it seems a little too big for the 1:6 scale figures.  Might match up with the Sideshow Indy a little better.

It surprised me because, being free, I figured Hasbro would skimp on it rather than make it too big.  Still, very cool item and I'm glad I was able to pick it up.

2 of my 4 that I have sent away for have come in. I have a 5th form filled out, pluss the one that I got from Jeff puts me up to 6 Aliens. I am not sure if I am going to get 7 more or not. Depends on how quickly I can finish form 5 and if DOOM wave comes out before cut off time on the order. If I can be within 4 of the total then I might.

My 5th one came in the mail. I still have to open my TOD figures and mail those stickers away. Between the 5 I have, the 1 I have mailed away for and the one I still need to send away for I am going to have nearly the 13 needed for the final scene. I think I might get rid of all but 2. I really don't need 7 of them.
