Oh I wish they were in the system here wrong, but they're at $16.92.  I can't complain too much, I scored four of the deluxe at $9.99 at TRU.

Yesterday I bought a Belloq, bringing my figure count to 4.  I plan on buying one at a time of just the ones I really want (I'm skipping the Marion and German soldier carded releases).  I'm also not going to get any Last Crusade or KOTCS toys since the nostalgia factor isn't there for me on those.

My original intent with this line was to simply buy one Indy, but alas... the paint apps are horrid but I've found some good examples here and there and since May 1st I've bought:

Indy w/ horse (best Indy hands down)
Marion and Cario Henchman
Indy w/ Ark
Indy w/ temple trap
Sallah

And looks like I'll be buying the rest, too.   :)

I bought some more Indy stuff at Wal-Mart while I was out of town this weekend.

Indy w/Fertility Idol (I was lucky enough to find one with excellent paint apps. ;D)
Monkey Man
Sallah
Marion and Cairo Henchmen

I'm really happy with Sallah, he's an outstanding figure. SA Indy is pretty great too, but the holster really sucks. :P

Getting into a new line has really made me realize just how bored I was getting with Star Wars collecting. :-\ :)

Indy w/ idol
Sallah
Irina Spalko
Belloq
Indy w/ark

I kind of regret the Indy w/idol purchase, since the Indy w/ horse seems to be superior.

Irina Spalko
Ugha Warrior
Cemetery Warrior
Russian Soldier

Glad to finally have an Irina Figure!

So now for me it's just down to grabbing the rest of the army builders I want until regular and deluxe Wave 3 figures hit.

Have there been any reports of the Jungle Cutter being found?

For someone that initially had no interest in this line, I'm doing a pretty good job of blowing money on it.  This morning, I picked up Col. Dovchenko, Cairo Swordsman, and the Cemetery Warrior.

I picked up my first figure from this line last night, the KOTCS Indy with the RPG. I really would like to get more into the line but I think once I get myself a nice SA Indy with his hat and Jacket I'll be done.
