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

Pics in this linky...

custom German motorcycle with sidecar. It might not be the most authentic piece, but it looks OK here.

Ok, so I still haven't bit the bullet on the Wave 4 case from EE. Anyone want to explain how the "return unwanted figures back to the store" thing works? $90 is a lot to spend on 6 figures...

Now, the motorcycle that Indy's riding in those pics is just an unladen German Trooper motorcycle with the Marauders sidecare attached, right?  That's not the actual cycle you get from Marauders, is it?

No, it's not. The cycle from Marauder is smaller and less ornate.



Rather than buying another Hasbro cycle and customizing the Marauder sidecar to fit that, I just display it the way it came from Marauder.

Scored a Henry Jones and Grail Knight the other day.  I'm surprised that these are still turning up.

I've got extras of both if you're in need of them.  I'd like to trade them for a Short Round but there's a fat chance of that happening.

I really wish they hadn't dropped this line. I was one of those on the fence guys but only due to funds and I figured since there was a glut in the SW line Hasbro would eventually do the same here. I'm short 3 figures with the exception of wave 4. I still haven't picked up a Marion because I'd seen her everywhere and I need an Elsa and Grail Knight to round out what I'm after. Of course I'm after the single card Marion to get the artifact. That will change if wave 4 shows up. EE still has it up for sale but it sounds like Hasbro might cancel orders for it. Hasbro can say all they want about a movie year for support. If you put ads on TV for Saturday mornings kids will want it if it's cool enough. I think Hasbro just want's lines they can carrier that carry themselves with no TV ad marketing. Sure there are exceptions but their logic is flawed all around IMO.

As a business owner, wouldn't you want that?  That's just common business sense to focus on products that have a lesser cost of production and marketing.

I did see a commercial for the Akator playset once. But only for that.
