So at this point, how does the Indy stuff seem to be selling in your areas? I know a lot of us were curious to see how this line will do, and although there will probably be a push once the movie is released next week - how has it looked so far? I noticed here locally, things seem to have sold pretty well. Deluxe figures definitely seem to be the hottest, but the basic figures are starting to dwindle as well. I don't think I've seen any vehicles since the first day, and the Adventure Heroes seem to be picking up a little bit more now too (although there still seems to be plenty - but I haven't looked which ones are left specifically recently).
So, so up north. TRU bought in seriously with lots of single cards, deluxe, vehicles, whips, spuds, etc. They've sold quite well from what I can tell, but that might just be a consequence of no one else really caring. Walmart has been pretty sparse really and I'm hoping that's because they were waiting for the movie to come out but I doubt it because they really didn't do much with Iron Man. A little more, but not much. I think they're just cool to movie toys now (smart, but unfortunate in this case). Still, what they've had has sold well, except the whips.
The other retailer, Zellers (poor man's Target) is completely hit and miss. I've been to four of six stores locally and only one put anything of substance out and only middle of this week. So with them I'm hoping it's still just a lag before the movie comes out.
I'm pretty much at the point where I've purchased what I wanted thus far from the first couple of waves. I'd still like to find an Indy/horse with good eyes on the Indy. I bought the KOTCS Indy's on the single card and left the rest of the wave until after seeing the movie. Picked up the deluxe I wanted, returned those I didn't. Mostly wanting the stuff that duplicates vintage stuff and the ToD/Grail stuff. So I've bought:
___ Indiana Jones (Jacket/Hovitos Temple)
___ Indiana Jones (Open Shirt/Cairo)
___ Monkey Man
___ Cairo Swordsman
___ Indiana Jones (Shirt/Bazooka)
___ Indiana Jones (Jacket/KotCS)
___ Indiana Jones (Map Room) with Ark
___ Marion Ravenwood and Cairo Henchman
___ German Soldiers
___ German Soldier with Motorcycle
So just waiting on a decently painted Indy/horse. Need to get Belloq/Sallah for the regular collection. Contemplating Marion and German soldier for the artifacts (loser). Humming and hawing on the vehicles. They look great, but I don't really need them and not sure I want them.
