Finally found a Grail Knight at Target tonight. Still lacking Elsa and Henry, but who isn't?

Found the Mutt on Motorcycle at TRU today.  It was the only Deluxe they had on the pegs...they had several Single Pack Mutts though...and by several I mean a dozen.

Surprised to find the Cairo thug 2-pack at a WM tonight!  Should look good among the Cairo scenes.

I received a Henry Jones Sr. figure via HTS today, so I was happy to pick that one up.  Now if I could only find Vogel and Elsa, I'd be caught up on the Indy stuff.  I still wonder if we'll see the ToD and 2nd Raiders wave at retail at all.  You know that even if stores keep their Indy section after the holidays, its going to be shrunk down considerably, and I could see it just stuffed with Waves 1 and 2 and nothing else.

Found not one, but two Henry Jones Sr. figures today.  Only a week after the one from ruiner arrived.  My luck remains consistent.  No Elsa/Vogel to be found.

I checked out WM tonight after hearing about the roll back to $5.44.  Luckily my store took part.  I picked up T-shirt Mutt, Dovechenko and Ugha Warrior, three figures that I'd passed on up till now.  I'd rather have picked up a Russian soldier but none around.  Still, just filled another Crystal Skeleton card to send off.

Hopefully my store will sell down a little, and Target will match their price and also sell down.

I found Tie Indy and Young Indy tonight at a WM simply deluged with an island display and a full regular aisle rack of Indy ****.  both look nice but I've not opened either yet.

No Knight, no Elsa, no German Col., and no Dr. Henry Sr. 

So I'm on my way to catching up, but 4 biggies missing really sucks.  I could live easily without the knight but not the other three.  Those I'd really like to have, especailly the German and Henry.

I too saw the roll back to $5.44, so I bought a German Soldier since I didn't have the single carded version.

Came across the Tie Indy and Young Indy and Grail Knight yesterday at walmart. They are still priced at $6.94. No Henry.

Since I hadn't found anything from the TLC Wave of figures here in the Twin Cities; I went on line and won the Elsa & Vogle that I hadn't found yet. I was lucky to pick up the 2 Indy's from that wave around July 4th in Chicago, and picked up the Grail Knight from my comic place, and a guy here in town had come across a Henry Sr and grabed that for me. So now I am done with that wave.
I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

My WM got in a restock on Indy figures, unfortunately it was that miserable case pack with just the three new Wave 3 figures and all wave 1 & 2 repacks.  The store filled up a big side of one of the cube aisle displays.  Terrible.

I did pick up the Last Crusade Indy, though, which was the only W3 figure I needed. 

I guess I'll send off for another Crystal Skeleton.
