Just got notification from BBTS that my TOD set came in. I ended up paying nearly 2x Target/Wal-Mart price for these figures, but since I have yet to see anything other than Indy with Machine gun, and Young Indy from the TLC wave 3 I figured this was my only hope for these figures.
I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

I ordered from Toyrocket...hopefully they will be shipping soon as well.  When you add in the price of gas, running around trying to find these, it all evens out in the end i think.  Plus, I don't have to stress out about finding them now...the TLC wave was a @#$% to track down and I really just got lucky on a few of them.

I finally bought Indy w/Horse at Target today. The horse is terrific, and the Indy is probably my favorite Indy of the line. :)

Got my Fabric Canopy Truck and Mutt w/Motorcycle from Hasbro Toy Shop today.

Nice to finally have the Mutt w/Motorcycle figure. This should have been how Mutt was released from the beginning - just remove the head with the glasses and put on a regular head - skip releasing him carded entirely.

I just got Mutt on Bike form TRU.com   He's a nice figure.  I keep seeing Akator in the store, but have yet to grab it.

A fellow collector hooked me up with an Elsa figure.  All I need now to shut out the series is the TOD wave.

Got a young Indy today.  I hope I can get the rest of the figures before the line gets killed.  But at this point I only have 2 Last Crusade figures.

I received Elsa and Vogel via HTS over the weekend, so if the ToD wave is indeed the last we see of the line, I'm all caught up and complete now.  I think the sting of this line's early demise is even worse because it appears these last two waves (TLC and ToD) are quite a bit better quality overall than the first two.  Its still disappointing that things are ending, and hopefully Hasbro figures out a wave to get another wave or two out there - but it was a pretty nice run with a wave from each film, and I'm glad to have them.

I picked up a Russian Soldier over the weekend and took advantage of Target's sale yesterday to pick up the Marion/Thug 2-pack that I had been putting off till now.  My buddy Joe has an extra Mutt/Cycle that I'm going to pick up and that will catch me up on figures (minus ToD) with the exception of the 2 Indy Deluxe trap sets.   I'll wait on those, if I ever do buy them.

Got the Tank battle pack today.  There were only two at the store I went to, and I got the one with the less egregious paintjobs.

Thankfully I had all the figures in the BPs, so I picked up a 12" talking Indy for $16 at Target. I might go back tomorrow and pick up the Indy and Mola Ram Mighty Muggs.

I just bought one of these to make a custom German motorcycle with sidecar. It might not be the most authentic piece, but it looks OK here.

It was only $6.44 after shipping, so it's an easy price to pay to plug one of the holes in this line.
