Cool set for repacks. Too bad it wasn't UBP with the tank.  :P

I wonder if this will make it to retail. :-\

I've read of at least one collector getting Battle Packs pulled from the back room using the DPCI.  I'm assuming that this set was one of them.

They wouldn't give them to me today... said they didn't go out until the DVD is put on shelves... so, I'm going to go try in the morning.

I've yet to see Henry Jones Sr at retail.  This pack might be my only shot.

Yeah.  Of course, I don't know if it was this battle pack or just the one pictured in the circular.

So I picked up both battle packs today.

Does any one know if the figures come with the accessories in there?  Senior isn't wearing his hat, isn't holding the diary, doesn't have his suitcase.  Dovchenko has a pistol instead of the AK-47, Spalko doesn't seem to have her pistol, Vogel no baton, and I don't want to open it if he's not going to have those things in the box.

Both?  There are 3 Battle Packs out threre- RotLA (Cairo), TLC (Tank), and KotCS (Jungle).

Does any one know if the figures come with the accessories in there? 

From what I have heard, what you see is what you get - there are no extra accessories hidden anywhere.

Yeah, they had all three, but I'd already bought enough of the Raiders figures that it didn't make sense to pick that one up.

Of course, now I'm returning them... so, this wasn't nearly the excellent way to get caught up that I'd hoped for.

Saw both of these at Target yesterday. Can't say I wasn't tempted for the price.

I finally remembered to look for these tonight at Target.  They had 2 of each on a front end cap along with the DVD. 

They actually look pretty good, nice presentation, and if I didn't have any of them it would be a good way to pick up those figures.

I saw all three of these on a front endcap at Target yesterday.  They had 2 of the KOTCS ones, and one each of Raiders and Last Crusade.  Not a bad deal at $15.99 really, but since I was able to finish off the basic line in the past few weeks, there wasn't anything to pick up really.  I had planned on getting the Tank Showdown set for Henry and Vogel, but didn't need them anymore.  It is a pretty nice deal for someone who wants a nice set of Indy figures, and isn't concerned about any missing accessories.

Looked at TLC BP yesterday. I want to assume that Henry Sr.'s accessories are included, but couldn't see them or find printed conformation. Does anyone know for sure if they're included?
