I picked up Sallah and the Cario Swordsmen at WM today. I held off on all secondary characters because I was not interested in the line. With my TOD case arriving any day I figured I can return the 6 useless Indy & Mutts that take half the case up in favor of guys I passed on. I will have to figure out the other 4 characters I am going to buy to retun all of the crap I do not need.

All of the Cario dudes can make great G.I.Joe Taliban villains maybe I will army build with them....

I got the TOD case last night - WOW.
This line is sure ending on a high note as the six new figures are truly the best in the line! I even lucked out and got perfect paint jobs/figures on all of them. It's a real shame they did not case pack two of every figure this wave could have helped save the line.

Anyone waiting on buying this case where they can should not wait, it's truly worth it. I plan on buying some figures I passed on then exchanging the extras from this case in their place so it's makes buying it less painless.

GO FOR IT!

I've been playing catch up on the line as I just now decided to get in on it while it is still around at retail. One of the local Wal-Marts has basic figures marked down to $5.44, which really isn't a bad deal.

Yesterday I picked up:

Sallah
Belloq
Cairo Swordsman
Deluxe Indy with the Ark of the Covenant

I may end up biting on the TOD wave case from EE as well. The crappy case ratio is the only thing holding me back. And Hasbro really wouldn't have done anything differently? ::)

Received my absurdly expensive Elsa from an ebay seller today. It cost a lot of money, but it's worth it to finally put the Last Crusade wave behind me. Now for ToD.

I got my Temple of Doom case today.

All I need is the Elsa and Vogul to show up in the mail and I think I'm all done.   :)

Found a new case of figures at WM today and picked up a Henry Jones and a couple army builders.  This was one of the refresh cases that only had the Indy, Young Indy and Henry, not the full TLC wave.

I finished of the Raiders wave today and picked up Monkey Man and Marion. I also nabbed a deluxe Indy w/ Horse.

I'm getting there... I just need to grab the OT German vehicles. And finish off the TOD and TLC waves.

Wow...on this page alone there are 3 collectors that are just picking up figures from May.  No wonder this line tanked. 

I buy every carded SW figure (except repacks) that comes out.  Sure there's a figure here and there that doesn't interest me.  But I know that if I support figures like Mon Mothma and Sio Bibble, Hasbro will make figures like Bo Shek or Woislea.  I understand finacial limitations, but it's no wonder Hasbro started shipping full Indy cases when people were not buying Marion and other secondary characters.

Received my motorcycle w/sidecar from Marauder Inc. today. Henry Sr. fits perfectly in the sidecar. Sucks Hasbro couldn't get this set made, but at least there's this set to fill the void.

What can I say?  I wasn't impressed with the line until I saw the later figures, and the $5.44 price point at Wal-Mart.

I picked up x2 fabric hood cargo truck, deluxe Mutt, Monkey Man, Grail Knight and when I came home my 3rd Skeleton came. I just mailed away for two more that to my TOD case. It's a shame this line is dead I was starting to come around to it a bit.

Are you guys talking about this?


I know it's only $5 but any photos you can share with Indy and Henry Sr. in the vehicle would be very helpful.

Thanks!
