Very pretty indeed.  I'd like to own this one.  I could probably even leave that one carded with the other loose Indy in my collection.

I'd really like to have this one,  but if it ends up being as hard to get as the 400% Indy, I can live without it.

What is a GSX Indy?

GSX is a collectible watch store in Japan that sells collectible character watches and occasionally other items like tin boxes, figurines and more.  It is like the Fossil Watch stores we have in our malls here (do you have those in Canuckia?). 

This carded Indy Kubrick figure appears to be a promo item tied in to their new line of Indy Watches.  I'm not 100% sure, but it looks like the only way to get one is as a gift when you buy a watch while supplies last...  still trying to get a good translation on that.   :-\

I have confirmed from a few people now that the carded figure will only be available as a free gift to the first 500 people who pre-order the Indiana Jones watches from GSX Watch in Japan.

The pre-order has been open for a while in Japan (earlier this month), so chances are very good that the 500 pieces are already gone.  Looks like another one where eBay will be the only chance tof most people, and with the watches going for around $150 bucks, I imagine the few Indy figures that make it to eBay/Yahoo auctions will be pretty pricey.   :(

Well then, that takes me out of the running for sure.  I don't need/want a $150 Japanese Watch.  ;)

I want one but not for that much. I think patience will have to work with this one.

One showed up on the bay from Simon who used to be around here. The watch was also included in the auction. It was bin'd as I was looking at it.
