Today at Target I had a very, very annoying experience. The ToD wave was IN THE ******* BACKROOM, but the stupid he/she/it employee wouldn't pull it for me, despite my intention to buy the entire case from those ********. I plan on writing, a very, very angry letter to Target regarding this encounter with 'Yvette' and Target's quote, "problem they have with collectors." >:(

And yet, I still walked out of there with a ton of Star Wars crap. :-\

Is the DCPI for this wave floating around anywhere?

It would just be a shame to pay what amounts to around $10 per, when if they hit stores they'll be $5.44 at Wal-Mart...

Depends, my WMs still have them at $6.94...

They wouldn't give you your toys? That's it? Good luck with that very, very angry letter.

Take a deep breath sonny.

Okay, I've calmed down a bit. :)

I'm still pretty pissed off though, to think that I could've gotten the ToD wave today at retail price. :'(

How did you know it was the TOD wave in the back?  Did someone back there confirm which figures were in the case that they wouldn't sell you?

With the answer that Hasbro gave Cool Toy Review in this week's Q&A session where they recommend getting this wave online 'cause it will most likely not make it to the big retail chains - I decided to place an order for this wave from Entertainment Earth.

I'm not overly thrilled with getting like six additional Indiana Jones figures that I don't really need, but I guess now I'll just hope that they ship me the wave so I get it before December 30th so I'll just rip those guys open to send away for another Crystal Skeleton.

I know the other option was to buy them off eBay - but a quick scan of auctions for complete sets shows that the going rate for a set of six is the same price as the case from EE, so just for the stickers alone the EE option wins.

I am keeping an eye on an auction for 3 of the Temple Guards, since my wants from this wave were 1 of each figure, two of the Head Guards and at least 4 Temple Guards, winning that auction would help me get towards my goal. Combine that with the Head Guard my friend was able to score for me as part of a trade, and I'll be finally all set with this wave.

Sucks that it had to come to this. Why couldn't Hasbro have just dumped the ToD wave on HasbroToyShop.com?

I think it's perfecly logical to be pissed off at them.  It doesn't matter that they're
 "just toys". With the economy the way it is, stores should sell whatever they can to who ever wants it.

I've heard that this wave might be showing up at TJ Maxx stores.  I hit a couple today, but no luck so far.

That would be awesome. I just can't bring myself to spend $100 for six figures.

They did hit TJ Maxx before Christmas, and apparently were gone about 2-3 weeks ago in my area.  I've checked two different stores in my area a couple times and only find a ton of Young Indy.

I've also heard that they have been found at Marshall's, though that was just a friend talking who doesn't collect the line.  I went by a Marshall's tonight and didn't see any Indy stuff.

I saw some TLC figures, but no vehicles or anything else. That was after Christmas, though. Plus their toy section looks worse than K-Mart's. It's like they just toss **** right out of the cases and wherever it lands is where it gets sold.

TJ Maxx is still getting stuff, so keep checking...  Ours just got TLC and cargo trucks in this past couple weeks or so.  Not very long though, so it's still trickling out.  I think TOD's just gonna be a tough wave to track down ultimately though.

Check ROSS Dress 4 Less, and other discounters though.  ROSS got in those titanium figures nobody could find like 3PO and Luke.  I got those there and didn't even collect the line but wound up with rare stuff.  Go figure.

I've been hitting the local Dollar Generals/Family Dollar too, since they're ubiquitous around here. No luck. Found some Legendary Comic Book Heroes figures, but only the two-packs.

WOW!  Just got a case from EE!  Holy sh*t these are fantastic figures.  I may need to get another temple guard (Thuggee.)  It's a real shame that this line died an early death.  As others have said, some of Hasbro's best work ever.
