They're pretty decent really John, and if you find a good Indy paintjob, then both the CS and Raiders Indy's are nice.

The deluxe Indy's are basically pointless unless you want the traps, which are pretty decent toys/micro playsets.  The Indy w/Horse is worth every penny though, just the two trap ones are weak figures overall.  The Crystal Skull Indy's hat isn't as big in person as it is in pictures either, so I wish Raiders had a removable hat too.  Oh well.

I personally feel the KOTCS Jacketed Indy is THE best figure of the line... mainly due to the nonworking holster. It doesn't make the jacket "poof out" like on the Raiders Indy, and you can move the belt around where the whip holder doesn't interfere with the satchel. It's too bad both Indys are hard to find, as I'd like to pick up another version of each and switch the belts on them so I'll have a perfect Raiders Indy.

I also agree with Jesse on the Indy heads. I wish they'd used the KOTCS head on each Indy, because not only does it look like Harrison Ford, it could double as an old and a young Indy... all they'd have to do is paint the hair brown instead of gray.

Picked up a bunch of trooper builders today at Target since they were on sale, plus I used a couple of the $5 off coupons...

2x German Soldier Deluxe 2-pack
2x German Solider Single Packs
3x Ugha Warriors

I'm up to the following army builder wise

6x German Soldier
3x German Soldier Dark Green from Deluxe
3x German Soldier w/Variant Head from Deluxe
4x Russian Soldier
6x Ugha Warriors - gonna put the brakes on these now, I'm sure we'll eventually get a variant with a different body color and new head
3x Cemetary Warriors - not going to get any more of those since there were only three in the movie

I think I might get another pair of Russian Soldiers and at least one more German Soldier 2-pack and that will be it for the army builders that are out now.

Won't really be army building any Indy figures now until the Thugee Guard figure and the Cairo Henchmen deluxe 2-pack comes out.

Picked up the Cemetery Warrior (awesome!), Monkey Man, Dovchenko, and a Russian Soldier in the last few days. Still undecided on the Ugha, Mutt w/out jacket, and the Deluxe Temple Indys.

Not a toy related purchase, but I picked up the TPB adaption of KOTCS at Barnes & Noble today.

Picked up an Ugha Warrior tonight. Funny how a sale will make you make purchases you were previously undecided on.  :)

I took advantage of Target's sale this week and grabbed another German 2-Pack yesterday.  The basic, deluxe, and Adventure Heroes pegs were stocked full at our local store.  I wonder if they just loaded up for the movie/sale, or if things are slowing down a bit sales-wise.  Its always difficult to judge, although with Iron Man, the weekend the movie came out our town was basically sold out.  Granted, its an entirely different type of line.

Picked up the following last night:

1x Jungle Cutter (yeah!)
2x Russian Solider (brings my count of them to 6)
1x Colonel Dovchenko (to display on the Jungle Cutter)

I'm really pleased with the Jungle Cutter vehicle, it looks great with the Russians all positioned on it.

Picked up an Irina Spalko since my first one had bad eye paint and it was bothering me.

I have my first available to a customizer who wants it. Keep in mind it has bad eye paint, but the rest of the figure is great and I have the accessories.

I've been considering doing the same. It seems every Spalko I've seen has had way better paint then the one I got on release day. :-\
