Canadian Indy debut was clearly a weird experience.
Like jangotat I didn't find anything at Zellers (a lame Canadian parallel to Target, but probably closer to K-Mart).
Only one of four Walmarts had anything out and it was just one case of deluxe figures. They clocked in at 16.92 per which is just too much for me when US retail is $9.99.
TRU had some stuff out including vehicles, deluxe, 12" and ROTLA figs, but no KOTCS at all.
I didn't spring for any of the single carded figures for a couple of reasons. First, the price. Not bad by Canadian standards at $9.99 for single figures but knowing there might be another HTS.com coupon and free shiping that'll take them down to half that price means I'm in no hurry. The second reason is the bigger reason. Indy's eyes, and it didn't matter whether it was the figure with the jacket or without, were like a two year old painted them on. They are exactly like the photos that I was hoping were prototypes that were to be fixed, but nope. I looked at every figure of those single carded Indy's and wouldn't and won't buy them. I want the figs, I want the accessories that come with it, but that's one serious thyroid problem there. And I could get it if it was a production run on just one of the regular figures, but both? Quality control out sick the day those ran through? Yeesh.
Thankfully TRU had some mispricing on their stuff. Never is TRU cheaper than Walmart in Canada on anything at regular price but at one of the stores they had the $9.99 SKU on the peg for the deluxe figures. I took them to the scanner but they came up not on file. So I went to the checkout and was honest saying don't know your price, checked, nada. The girl went and grabbed the SKU off the pegs and ran them through at $9.99 each. Not a big deal south of the border but it saved me $7+taxes on each of the four I bought. Over $30
So in checking over the figures, I found a couple of Indy's that looked ok. I picked up and am happy with:
Indiana Jones with Ark
Indiana Jones with Temple Trap - I had zero intention of buying this, but it was the only decent ROTLA Indy
Marion Ravenwood and Cairo Henchman - the Marions are indeed identical and some have bad eyes too
I was hoping they'd have had Indy with horse and the German motorcycle at that price too, but none at either TRU unfortunately.
I'm hopeful the later Indiana figures in assortments are better done for the eyes, or I probably won't be buying them. Honestly, they look that crappy. Please, please Hasbro, don't butcher anymore of the eyes on these figures or this line is dead as a doornail before the movie ever comes out.
