It wouldn't be hard to have improved on it to actually make it look appropriate for the bike...  I guess the dude that did that didn't feel like going the extra mile to pick up some paint. ;)

Seriously though, if you got a 2nd bike, to hack up a bit and use some of its parts/detail bits on the PTE sidecar from Marauder Inc., it can work.  I've seen someone do that same custom but put time into working out the details and stuff so it looks authentic.  It's quite nice when you go all the way with the project, and the sidecar's cheap too, which is a bonus.

German bikes actually more often than not did have the sidecar on them, or so I've heard...  Rare for them not to I guess.(?)

Yeah. It simply invites the floodgates to open on TLC cases. But, I figure, it's $8-9 at retail anyway, plus this way I don't have to look for it anymore, since I've been hunting for this wave since early July. I hope my preorder with Toyrocket for the ToD wave is fruitful, because that's shaping up to be a bloodbath.

Saw the entire Last Crusade wave at a Target a week ago today.  Picked up everything except Tie and Young Indy.

Have an extra carded Grail Knight and Henry Jones.  Will trade one or both for a Short Round.  Let me know.

I've had my eye on HTS.com hoping I'd score that TOD wave but I noticed last night that, other than Mola Ram, the wave is missing from the site.  Some of the TLC figures like Elsa, Henry and the Grail Knight are gone as well as Vogel.

I didn't pre-order a case of TOD because I didn't really want to get stuck with all those extras but now I'm wishing I had.  Well, EE is still taking pre-orders on that case so I put one in.  We'll see if it gets filled.

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.

I just bought one. Thanks for the link! :)

Acquired an Elsa and the Cairo two pack today at retail.  Granted it was Target retail, but it wasn't no $20/figure either.  Still needing me some Vogel.

Just a note: I saw Mutt on the motorcycle the other day on the pegs at Target.

I picked up the cloth Cargo Truck at Target and got a notice that my TOD case is shipping tomorrow! I'm glad I took a chance and ordered the case from EE!

Not really a purchase but I FINALLY mailed away for my Crystal Skeleton yesterday. Still waiting to bite the bullet on a TOD case from EE.
