The person who was helping me out with a set sent me an update the other day to let me know that my Indy set was listed as "backordered".  Not shipped, not cancelled, just 'backordered'.  They shipped his Joe stuff, but the Indy set is just sitting there.

I have no idea if that means they are planning on running another batch or if they lost a few pallet of sets or if those "oversold" rumors are true or what...  wait and see I guess.   :-\

Yikes.  Sorry to hear that you guys are having trouble.

I got mine two days ago, and I can't believe how over-packaged this thing was.  A massive box for six little action figures.

I'd be more than happy if Hasbro did another run of these in a regular, "Battle Pack" style box with all the accessories included.  The packaging, while neat, I guess, is pretty inconsequential to me, as they'd all get opened anyway. 

Two weeks gone, though, and that whole HTS fiasco is still pissing me off.   :-\

Got my shipping notice today for both that I ordered.  So at the very least myself and some prick will be happy.

My pal sent me an update that my "backordered" set converted to "not shipped" last night and he got a shipping notice this AM.

Guess my set is finally on it's way!

For the first time that I can remember, I've had a hard time opening something.  I think this set is just amazing in the box.  And I hate leaving things in the box.  One day, I'll break down and open it though, I'm sure of it.

Wait, what are they going for on Ebay?  I might "let" you win it and we can split it....

Also kidding....

I sold the other 45 I got from HTS...I am just giving the ONE away.  After I did a figure swap with all Crystal Skull figs.

Got the set today and is it so, so great.  Really makes me wish this line would have had some better legs - I'd still love to see Sallah, Marcus, White Suit Belloq, Lao Che, Tuxedo Indy and more!

Yeah, I mean they've never done Dietrich, Belloq in his white suit...  I wanted to see a U-Boat Captain (weird, but I'd dig it), several Sallah figures...   I'd have dug the German wing pilot, the truck driver as a variant (supposedly actually was intended to be done and a prototype exists.  Lance Quazar has a hard copy actually)...

Indy in German Officer duds from the book burning, Cruciform Sword guy, Donovan, Fedora...

And blasphemy, but I always wanted to see Indy figures FROM World War 2, now that we know Indy was part of the OSS in the war...  Could be really awesome customs done of those.  I think if I was more into that aspect of the hobby like I used to be, I'd be whipping up some Indy figures like he was doing spy work and sabotage stuff during the war all over the place.

And yes, a friggin' Marcus Brody would've been nice.
