Out of the few I saw the day I bought mine, this one was the best.



Looks like she has smudged lipstick or something.   :-\

Finally found a Cemetary Warrior today at TRU so I picked it up.  I think I need a Ugha Warrior and then I'm pretty much done till wave 3.

Picked up the following figures, just to finish off my seventh Crystal Skeleton Mail-away certificate:

Sallah (so I can permanently put one in my Well of Souls playset - he's now in there with my extra RotLA jacketed Indy)
Indiana Jones (Jacket, KotCS)
Mutt Williams (Jacket & Sword)
Irina Spalko

I have a two peg stand that I've set up Irina and Mutt having a duel with. It looks pretty good.

Like I said, I picked these up for the stickers, but the other reason is that if they ever release the Duck/Seep vehicle, I'll get two of those and use those three KotCS figures along with a pair of Russian Soldiers to make a mini display from the chase scene in the movie.

So I think all I have left that I want to buy is one more Temple Pitfall Set. I want to use the snakes in my Well of Souls playset and I'll take the Indy to put hanging off of the grill of the Cargo Truck. I'm going to give the tree/pit piece to a co-worker of mine who picked up a regular Indy figure and let me have the sticker for one of my Crystal Skeleton certificates.  ;D

I might pass on Spalko until next year, since we'll probably get a new one.

Looks like wicked herpes outbreak to me!  Yikes.  Good thing he didn't kiss this Jones girl.

In other Spalko news...

For you guys with them, and maybe curious what you could use them for, I hear her legs fit perfectly, and match the color perfectly, of the Lt. Shann from the comic 2-pack.  Likewise, her head fits Lt. Shann (or Juno Eclipse) perfect as well.  Her grey poofy pants look much more Imperial, and on Lt. Shann they make a very cool looking female Imp. Officer.

I've not done this yet, but I hear it's simply a matter of boiling, popping, and repopping the pieces together.  As simple as it gets and it yields a unique figure for your shelves.

(Also Marion's head and hands fit the Juno Eclipse/Lt. Shann body perfectly as well, making yet another female character that works, and we all may have extra Marions)

I bought a ton of Indy stuff at Target today.

Cemetary Warrior (first one I've seen in the wild)
Ugha Warrior
Indy w/Ark
German Motorcycle

The motorcycle set is one of the coolest things ever to come out of Hasbro IMO. It's an awesome toy, and it makes me excited for the recently confirmed sidecar version. ;D

Target has stocked deluxe other than the three two-packs? Hell must be feeling pretty chilly...

Someone pulled a KotCS case for me at Target yesterday. I was hoping to finally find some Russian Soldiers, but it had already been dug into. I did finally pick up a decent jacketed KotCS Indy and this is the best Indy in the line by far! (for about 2 more weeks until the TLC wave shows up)  ;D

I do wish they had given the non-jacketed Indy a removable hat though.  :(

Picked up all six Last Crusade figures today.

I've only opened the Grail Knight, Henry Jones Sr. and Vogel.

I'm not disappointed by any of these figures. Vogel's uniform has a lot of nice details. The Grail Knight is nicely detailed as well. The Henry Jones figure is really nice and comes with a lot of nice accessories. The fact that they even sculpted the umbrella to be a separate piece from the suitcase was a nice touch.
