Picked up both vehicles, and two of the German 2-pks, Marian w/ Cairo henchman (neither can barely stand) and Indy w/ Ark at Target tonight.

I found a few tonight at K-Mart, but at 9.99 a piece I only picked up Sallah and Bellloq.  There were no Indys...oddly, the Ticket to Adventure pack in sheet was missing on both figures.  I got the little stickers, but nothing to stick them on.

Whoa, $10 each at KM?  That's even more than I thought they were gonna be.  Yeesh...  No wonder that store's such a hole.

Oooh, Canadian pricing.  I didn't know K-mart was Canadian.

Did anyone stumble on a setup today? Seeing that it is only 1 day early and all...

The TRU near where I work has a the marquee area taken up with Speed Racer junk - so I guess Indy doesn't rate high-enough to be a featured movie tie-in line in TRU. I was there as recently as 5PM this afternoon and it didn't even look like they were starting to make space for the Indy stuff.

Is it really supposed to be on the shelves tomorrow?

Well on the way home I stopped by a Target and scored the entire RotLA wave.

I also scored what appears to be the three Wave 1 deluxe figures: Indy/Ark, German soldiers 2-pack and Marion/Cairo Thug.

Only grabbed one of each - I have decided that for this line I'm getting openers only.

I just made a late early find, but early nonetheless! After a few phone calls I managed to find A target that secured a couple cases for me. I'm poor...so after digging through them examining headsculpts closely(they seem to all either be excellent or really crappy)...I ended up only buying a few:

Cairo Indy (RotLA)
German Soldier
Belloq
Cairo Swordsman
Indy w/Rocket Launcher (KotCS)
Dovchenko
Irina Spalko

I was looking forward to Monkey Man and Sallah but neither were anywhere to be found. Cemetary Warrior, Mutt w/Snake, and Marion were also missing but the cases were opened in front of me so I guess they'll just be tougher to find.

I've only opened a few (it's getting late), but so far the one that is really sticking in my mind as a superb figure is Dovchenko.

Good luck guys!

That's funny - when I stumbled on the figures at Target all they had were RotLA figures, not a single KotCS figure at all.

So I guess there is hope that I might stumble on the KotCS wave tomorrow.

I picked up a ROTLA Indy yesterday, with coat. That's the only figure I'm picking up.
