Well, in the category of good news, bad news, I found a set today.  But apparently my Wally is a bit more on the ball than most since they took the sale off ???  So I have a spare set on Canadian trilogo cards (actually I haven't opened my US carded Indy/Short Round/Whatsherface so you could have those if you like) for $8 US per figure and shipping.

Finally got the last couple of figures I needed from the TLC wave.  Had to use the Target DCPI trick to get that to happen.  If only that would work for the TOD wave.

I picked up my fourth German Soldier on the Motorcycle so I can make a custom motorcycle for Indy and his father to ride.

Got my last two Crystal Skeletons yesterday. All that remains for this line is the TOD wave, and I don't know how I'm going to get that one.

Ben, I would totally order from EE if you're willing to eat some extras.  That's how I got mine.   :(

I know that's my only option, I just don't want to admit it.  :)

Do you guys think EE is going to get more to fulfill the orders they're taking? My fear is that I'm going to get an e-mail from them at some point indicating that they weren't allocated enough and that my order has been cancelled.

Depends on how much Hasbro made. One would hope that EE is being smart about how much they can order.  The TOD wave was well into production when the standard retailers decided to drop the line, so there should be a decent quantity to be had.

I picked up the 12" Mutt and whip action Indy from SmallJoes.com, they were running a 50% off sale on them.  The figures are really kind of terrible overall but some of the accessories are nice.  Mutt's head sculpt is pretty well done.

I mainly got them to snag the accessories away from the Indy for a kitbash I'm working on, and I'll probably move Mutt's head to a better Hasbro body eventually.  Also now have enough coupons to send for another Ark.

Anyone spots the 12" Mutt w/ leather jacket on a shelf somewhere, I'm looking for that one also if you can help me out.

I got my TOD case a few days ago, now all I need to do is pick up a few deluxe and single carded figures then I'm done. The only one I won't wait until clearance for is the German Cycle.

If anyone is on the fence, I'd order.  I ordered last month and got my case a week ago.  With Target clearing these out and Wally World overloaded on pegwarmers, there's really no other option.  I'm glad I did it.  I originally ordered a set from HTS, with a bitching coupon, and that was stolen.  For real.  The post office is still researching  ::)  but HTS gave me my money back.

Hmmm.  Maybe I'll get the TOD case and give the leftover figures to my nephews!!!
