May 1st - What are you buying?
« on: April 16, 2008, 11:52 PM »
OK, after looking through the collection budget and countless hours of going back and forth in my mind, I finally decided to dive into this line... thanks for all the arm-twisting everyone!  :)

I was planning on starting a May 1 checklist/what are you buying thread in the next couple of weeks--or someone else is more than welcome to start it now if they want.

I attempted to whip up a Probable May 1st Checklist for my own use, but thought I'd post it since no one else had yet.  With that, here's what I am planning on buying from the May 1st Launch stuff...


3.75" Basic Figures
Wave 1 - RotLA
___ Indiana Jones (Jacket/Hovitos Temple) - yes
___ Indiana Jones (Open Shirt/Cairo) - yes
___ Marion Ravenwood - no
___ Monkey Man - yes
___ Belloq (Ceremony) - yes
___ German Soldier - maybe... have to see how much difference there is from the DLX version
___ Sallah - yes
___ Cario Swordsman - yes
Wave 2 - KotCS
___ Indiana Jones (Shirt/Bazooka) - yes
___ Indiana Jones (Jacket/KotCS) - yes
___ Irina Spalko - maybe... I'll wait until after I see the movie
___ Colonel Dovchenko  - maybe... I'll wait until after I see the movie

___ Indiana Jones with Temple Pitfall - no
___ Indiana Jones with Temple Trap - no
___ Indiana Jones (Map Room) with Ark - yes
___ Marion Ravenwood and Cairo Henchman - yes
___ German Soldiers - yes
___ German Soldier with Motorcycle - yes

3.75" Vehicles
___ Cargo Truck - maybe... still on the fence

12 Figures - not interested

___ Cairo Swordsman
___ German Officer
___ Mutt Williams


Adventure Heroes
___ Indiana Jones (Idol) & Tribal Warrior - yes
___ Indiana Jones (Whip) & Cairo Swordsman - yes
___ Indiana Jones (Map Room) & Marion Ravenwood - yes
___ Sallah & Mummy - yes
___ Indiana Jones (Gloves) & German Mechanic - yes

I"ll play along:


3.75" Basic Figures
Wave 1 - RotLA
___ Indiana Jones (Jacket/Hovitos Temple)
___ Indiana Jones (Open Shirt/Cairo)
___ Marion Ravenwood - going for deluxe
___ Monkey Man
___ Belloq (Ceremony)
___ German Soldier - not sure, will check the deluxe out like Jeff
___ Sallah
___ Cairo Swordsman

all the rest of it, just not all of it on May 1st.  Want to see the various Indy sculpts first.  

Wave 2 - KotCS
___ Indiana Jones (Shirt/Bazooka) -yes
___ Indiana Jones (Jacket/KotCS) -yes, but want to check sculpt first
___ Irina Spalko maybe later
___ Colonel Dovchenko maybe later  
___ Mutt Williams (Snake) maybe later
___ Mutt Williams (Jacket) maybe later 
___ Russian Soldier maybe later
___ Ugha Warrior maybe later
___ Cemetery Warrior maybe later

3.75" Deluxe Figures
Wave 1
___ Indiana Jones with Horse - yes
___ Indiana Jones with Temple Pitfall
___ Indiana Jones with Temple Trap
___ Indiana Jones (Map Room) with Ark - yes
___ Marion Ravenwood and Cairo Henchman -yes
___ German Soldiers - yes, probably these instead of single card
___ German Soldier with Motorcycle - yes

3.75" Vehicles
___ Cargo Truck - probably later
___ Troop Car - probably later

12" Figures
___ Indiana Jones (RotLA/Jacket)
___ Indiana Jones (RotLA/Whip Action)
___ Cairo Swordsman
___ German Officer
___ Mutt Williams


Adventure Heroes
___ Indiana Jones (Idol) & Tribal Warrior
___ Indiana Jones (Whip) & Cairo Swordsman
___ Indiana Jones (Map Room) & Marion Ravenwood
___ Sallah & Mummy
___ Indiana Jones (Gloves) & German Mechanic
___ Rene Belloq, Ark, & Ghost
___ Indiana Jones (Crystal Skull) & Colonel Dovchenko
___ Indiana Jones (Gun) & Ugha Warrior
___ Mutt Williams & Irina Spalko


Mighty Muggs
___ Indiana Jones
___ Cairo Swordsman
___ Mola Ram


Other Stuff
___ Taters of the Lost Ark
___ Role Play Whip


So basically 3.75" stuff only (maybe GG, maybe Sideshow premium) and then I'll have to see what Canadian retail is.  I know our single cards are bound to be $9.99 and I can tolerate that, but the deluxe scare me.  If they're double, I'll go via onlne ordering in the US.  I'd guess for that first day I'll grab what I find reasonable around here, but I doubt our distribution will be like the US situation.  Which is normal for us.

3.75" Basic Figures
Wave 1 - RotLA
___ Indiana Jones (Jacket/Hovitos Temple) - yes
___ Indiana Jones (Open Shirt/Cairo) - Maybe...  Not digging the whipping action and action pose.
___ Marion Ravenwood - no (waiting to get her in the 2-pack)
___ Monkey Man - yes
___ Belloq (Ceremony) - yes
___ German Soldier - yes (unless there are many Dlx 2-packs which appear to have one the same and one different)
___ Sallah - yes
___ Cario Swordsman - yes
Wave 2 - KotCS
___ Indiana Jones (Shirt/Bazooka) - yes
___ Indiana Jones (Jacket/KotCS) - yes
___ Irina Spalko - Maybe
___ Colonel Dovchenko  - yes
___ Mutt Williams (Snake) - Maybe
___ Mutt Williams (Jacket)  - Maybe
___ Russian Soldier  - yes
___ Ugha Warrior - Maybe
___ Cemetary Warrior - Maybe

(If there is a TON of stuff though, I may just nab army builders like the Russians as they're already getting attention from the 1:18 military crowd since we have no Russian figures, and the uniforms match up pretty good to WW2 Russians...  The other basic hero/villains from Wave 2 may get a pass if they're wildly abundant and I'll wait for sales or promos.)

3.75" Deluxe Figures
Wave 1
___ Indiana Jones with Horse - yes
___ Indiana Jones with Temple Pitfall - Probably waiting to get this, may skip it.
___ Indiana Jones with Temple Trap - Probably waiting to get this, may skip it.
___ Indiana Jones (Map Room) with Ark - yes
___ Marion Ravenwood and Cairo Henchman - yes
___ German Soldiers - yes
___ German Soldier with Motorcycle - yes

3.75" Vehicles
___ Cargo Truck - Yes, may get 3 to use a couple with my 1:18 military figures.  My artillery crews need an ammo truck.
___ Troop Car - Yes, maybe get a couple actually and hopefully cast MG's to replace the BFG on it.  Might repaint a couple to a more DAK realistic color and add accurate decals to it, etc.

12 Figures - not interested
___ Indiana Jones (RotLA/Jacket)
___ Indiana Jones (RotLA/Whip Action)
___ Cairo Swordsman
___ German Officer
___ Mutt Williams

Adventure Heroes - Not Interested
___ Indiana Jones (Idol) & Tribal Warrior
___ Indiana Jones (Whip) & Cairo Swordsman
___ Indiana Jones (Map Room) & Marion Ravenwood
___ Sallah & Mummy
___ Indiana Jones (Gloves) & German Mechanic
___ Rene Belloq, Ark, & Ghost
___ Indiana Jones (Crystal Skull) & Colonel Dovchenko
___ Indiana Jones (Gun) & Ugha Warrior
___ Mutt Williams & Irina Spalko

Mighty Muggs - not interested
___ Indiana Jones
___ Cairo Swordsman
___ Mola Ram

Other Stuff - Not interested
___ Taters of the Lost Ark
___ Role Play Whip



So basically I'm buying a lot of Raiders, gonna pick/choose KotCS, and definitely getting vehicles...  Multiples of anything army builder-ish for certain, including the truck, car, and motorbike.  I may wait on almost all the Deluxe but the bike though, and the 2-packs.

I also may skip the single-pack German for the 2-pack since they look like they're the same with the 2-pack having a green jacket variant (like Indy narfs his uniform on the U-Boat island).

KotCS army builders I"m definitely in on just so I finally have something other than US/German on my military shelf...  They'll go unarmed till I can find PPSH or Nagant rifles for them.

The Marion figure is dumb too...  There's a 2-pack with an army builder, why buy Marion carded then?

Are you guys going out late to look?  I'm thinking about heading out around midnight just to see what WM's putting out, if anything.

I attempted to whip up a Probable May 1st Checklist for my own use, but thought I'd post it since no one else had yet.

Rockin'.  Now I don't have to.  Thanks.

Here's what I'm probably definitely in for:

Raiders:  Monkey Man
             Belloq
            Sallah
            Cairo Swordsman
           
Skull:  Indy Rocket Launcher

Deluxe:  Marion with Henchman
            Nazis

Adventure Heroes:  Everything from Raiders

********************

Waiting on:

Whatever 3 3/4" Jacketed Indy I like best (can't tell right now which one--don't need seven or eight Indys in my collection)
Anything from Crystal Skull--until after I see it
Deluxe Indy with Ark (I'll know after 4/25)
Vehicles:  Clearance.  Probably.
12":  Clearance.  Deep, deep clearance--and only then for that bitchin' mail-in Ark
Mighty Muggs--only the Mola Ram, and probably only then on clearance

*******************

No interest:

Basic Marion
Deluxe Nazi with Motorcycle
Other Mighty Muggs except Mola Ram
Potato Head
Whip

I'll give this a go.  Looking at what I plan on buying though, and adding it up quick, it looks like over $200 on May 1st - and I don't think I can do that.  I might be spreading this out more, or passing on some things I originally planned on getting.  I'm still on the fence with vehicles, just due to the space issue for displaying them.  I used to think I'd just be happy with a SA Indy figure, so the rest of this is just gravy I guess.

I'm assuming that everyone here probably knows about this already, but in case someone doesn't--Target has a coupon for $5 off any toy purchase of $25 or more.  It's good until the first of October.  Here's a link where you can print four of them out on one piece of paper:



I'm planning on using a bunch of these during the launch and throughout the rest of the summer.

So, is everyone here heading out right away on Thursday morning - or waiting until the weekend?  I thought about going out that morning, but I'm wondering if everything will be out right away or not.  Aside from the ROTS toy release, our Targets seem to just "get to it when we get to it" with movie merchandise (Spidey, Transformers, and Iron man come to mind) - and I'm wondering if it will be out right away that day or not.  WM is the same way (they still only have the exclusive Iron Man repaint figure and nothing else from that line).  TRU seems to be a bit better, although a big chunk of their store seems to be dedicated to Speed Racer right now, so we'll see.

Anyways, with the recent 20% off/free shipping code, I went ahead and placed an order for the Raiders Adventure Hero sets.  They don't ship until later in May, according to the site, but I can wait if it means I can get them for $4.79 a pack (if the code holds for "preordered" stuff).  I'm considering doing the same thing with the deluxes I want, and just going out shopping for the basic figs next week.  That would make the "one day spending" look a lot nicer to the Mrs. :)
