Yeah, the line just seemed to be mishandled from the beginning unfortunately - and just when things were hitting their stride (particularly with the ToD wave), it all ended. I think the casepacks (Mutt being the biggest offender) had a lot to do with it. Plus, it seemed like retailers bought in big into the initial assortments of the line, and I think after the collectors got what they wanted, that was about it. I can't see I saw kids looking at the Indy stuff very often, and if they did, it was just for an Indy figure or the role play stuff. Although the movie did well (I enjoyed it for what it was, just not as much as the original movies), I don't know how "big" it was with kids/toy-buying parents.
We've talked before about the collectors vs. kids/parents issue with Star Wars and other lines, but this line in particular (Indy) was almost totally bought by collectors I'm guessing - and I don't think Indy has near the "collector base" as Star Wars, G.I. Joe, etc. Plus, all of those lines were out there vying for collector dollars last year as well. I think we discussed this when the line was first struggling, but if they had spread out the waves, having the Raiders wave in February or something, then have the "new movie" stuff out for the release, etc. might have helped things too. I do hope the line makes it back eventually (if/when we get another movie I guess), but if not, I am happy for what we got out of the line. After seeing the last couple waves in particular (TLC/ToD), I'd be excited to see some more figures from the line.
