Picked up Indy on a horse at Target when I was picking up all the Star Wars stuff that came out on 7/26

I picked up a Henry Jones tonight at Target.  Other than Indy, it was the only figure from the TLC wave on the pegs.

I've still yet to see a single TLC figure.  This is sad.

Same here.  I really wish I would have just preordered a set from BBTS or somewhere.  I actually had one on order at one point, but was worried I'd have too much shipping at once, and decided to cancel it.  That was a dumb decision.  I guess I can get two of the three (Henry and Vogel) in that Target BP, but as others have mentioned, I worry it won't include all the accessories.  Oh well, hopefully they'll show up somewhere soon.  I keep watching online, but everything has been sold out for awhile.

I finally found the TLC wave at a WM yesterday in Scranton, PA.  Picked up Henry and Elsa early on but left the rest.  Then, on my way home, I couldn't stop thinking about them so I hopped off the highway and hit up the store again and picked up Vogel, Grail Knight and Young Indy.  I have a feeling I won't see them again at retail.

Never pass up carded figures if you have the cash.  Never.  I've collected since 1977-1985/1995 to present and it's my one Golden Rule of Collecting.  You never know what will become HTF.  Great find!

I have followed this rule as well - it's a great rule to live by. Sure you might see the figure again, but ALWAYS grab yourself the "sure thing" if it's there in front of you. This has helped me MANY times with Star Wars figures - Ephant Mon, the first release of the McQuarrie Stormtrooper and entire POTF2 EU wave of figures. Those are all figures I only saw at retail ONCE.

Found Henry last week and scored an Elsa as well.

Picked up a Cairo Thug 2-pack today, no sign of the Muttercycle.

2 weeks ago I found a Mutt on Motorcycle here in MN. I have yet to see it again. I am glad I grabbed it when I did.

My Vogel arrived from a trade yesterday, thus completing the Last Crusade wave. Bring on Temple of Doom! ;D
