Title: May 1st - What are you buying?
Post by: Jeff on April 16, 2008, 11:52 PM
OK, after looking through the collection budget and countless hours of going back and forth in my mind, I finally decided to dive into this line... thanks for all the arm-twisting everyone!  :)

I was planning on starting a May 1 checklist/what are you buying thread in the next couple of weeks--or someone else is more than welcome to start it now if they want.

I attempted to whip up a Probable May 1st Checklist (http://www.jedidefender.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=17292.0) for my own use, but thought I'd post it since no one else had yet.  With that, here's what I am planning on buying from the May 1st Launch stuff...


3.75" Basic Figures
Wave 1 - RotLA
___ Indiana Jones (Jacket/Hovitos Temple) - yes
___ Indiana Jones (Open Shirt/Cairo) - yes
___ Marion Ravenwood - no
___ Monkey Man - yes

___ Sallah - yes
___ Cario Swordsman - yes
Wave 2 - KotCS

3.75" Deluxe Figures
Wave 1
___ Indiana Jones with Horse - yes
___ Indiana Jones with Temple Pitfall - no
___ Indiana Jones with Temple Trap - no
___ Indiana Jones (Map Room) with Ark - yes
___ Marion Ravenwood and Cairo Henchman - yes
___ German Soldiers - yes
___ German Soldier with Motorcycle - yes

3.75" Vehicles

I"ll play along:


3.75" Basic Figures
Wave 1 - RotLA
___ Indiana Jones (Jacket/Hovitos Temple)
___ Indiana Jones (Open Shirt/Cairo)
___ Marion Ravenwood - going for deluxe
___ Monkey Man
___ Belloq (Ceremony)
___ German Soldier - not sure, will check the deluxe out like Jeff
___ Sallah
___ Cairo Swordsman

all the rest of it, just not all of it on May 1st.  Want to see the various Indy sculpts first.  

Wave 2 - KotCS
___ Indiana Jones (Shirt/Bazooka) -yes
___ Indiana Jones (Jacket/KotCS) -yes, but want to check sculpt first
___ Irina Spalko maybe later
___ Colonel Dovchenko maybe later  
___ Mutt Williams (Snake) maybe later
___ Mutt Williams (Jacket) maybe later 
___ Russian Soldier maybe later  
___ Ugha Warrior maybe later
___ Cemetery Warrior maybe later

3.75" Deluxe Figures
Wave 1
___ Indiana Jones with Horse - yes
___ Indiana Jones with Temple Pitfall
___ Indiana Jones with Temple Trap
___ Indiana Jones (Map Room) with Ark - yes
___ Marion Ravenwood and Cairo Henchman -yes
___ German Soldiers - yes, probably these instead of single card
___ German Soldier with Motorcycle - yes

3.75" Vehicles
___ Cargo Truck - probably later
___ Troop Car - probably later

12" Figures
___ Indiana Jones (RotLA/Jacket)
___ Indiana Jones (RotLA/Whip Action)
___ Cairo Swordsman
___ German Officer
___ Mutt Williams


Adventure Heroes
___ Indiana Jones (Idol) & Tribal Warrior
___ Indiana Jones (Whip) & Cairo Swordsman
___ Indiana Jones (Map Room) & Marion Ravenwood
___ Sallah & Mummy
___ Indiana Jones (Gloves) & German Mechanic
___ Rene Belloq, Ark, & Ghost
___ Indiana Jones (Crystal Skull) & Colonel Dovchenko
___ Indiana Jones (Gun) & Ugha Warrior
___ Mutt Williams & Irina Spalko


Mighty Muggs
___ Indiana Jones
___ Cairo Swordsman
___ Mola Ram


Other Stuff
___ Taters of the Lost Ark
___ Role Play Whip


So basically 3.75" stuff only (maybe GG, maybe Sideshow premium) and then I'll have to see what Canadian retail is.  I know our single cards are bound to be $9.99 and I can tolerate that, but the deluxe scare me.  If they're double, I'll go via onlne ordering in the US.  I'd guess for that first day I'll grab what I find reasonable around here, but I doubt our distribution will be like the US situation.  Which is normal for us.

3.75" Basic Figures
Wave 1 - RotLA
___ Indiana Jones (Jacket/Hovitos Temple) - yes
___ Indiana Jones (Open Shirt/Cairo) - Maybe...  Not digging the whipping action and action pose.
___ Marion Ravenwood - no (waiting to get her in the 2-pack)
___ Monkey Man - yes
___ Belloq (Ceremony) - yes
___ German Soldier - yes (unless there are many Dlx 2-packs which appear to have one the same and one different)
___ Sallah - yes
___ Cario Swordsman - yes
Wave 2 - KotCS
___ Indiana Jones (Shirt/Bazooka) - yes
___ Indiana Jones (Jacket/KotCS) - yes
___ Irina Spalko - Maybe
___ Colonel Dovchenko  - yes
___ Mutt Williams (Snake) - Maybe
___ Mutt Williams (Jacket)  - Maybe
___ Russian Soldier  - yes
___ Ugha Warrior - Maybe
___ Cemetary Warrior - Maybe

(If there is a TON of stuff though, I may just nab army builders like the Russians as they're already getting attention from the 1:18 military crowd since we have no Russian figures, and the uniforms match up pretty good to WW2 Russians...  The other basic hero/villains from Wave 2 may get a pass if they're wildly abundant and I'll wait for sales or promos.)

3.75" Deluxe Figures
Wave 1
___ Indiana Jones with Horse - yes
___ Indiana Jones with Temple Pitfall - Probably waiting to get this, may skip it.
___ Indiana Jones with Temple Trap - Probably waiting to get this, may skip it.
___ Indiana Jones (Map Room) with Ark - yes
___ Marion Ravenwood and Cairo Henchman - yes
___ German Soldiers - yes
___ German Soldier with Motorcycle - yes

3.75" Vehicles
___ Cargo Truck - Yes, may get 3 to use a couple with my 1:18 military figures.  My artillery crews need an ammo truck.
___ Troop Car - Yes, maybe get a couple actually and hopefully cast MG's to replace the BFG on it.  Might repaint a couple to a more DAK realistic color and add accurate decals to it, etc.

12 Figures - not interested
___ Indiana Jones (RotLA/Jacket)
___ Indiana Jones (RotLA/Whip Action)
___ Cairo Swordsman
___ German Officer
___ Mutt Williams

Adventure Heroes - Not Interested
___ Indiana Jones (Idol) & Tribal Warrior
___ Indiana Jones (Whip) & Cairo Swordsman
___ Indiana Jones (Map Room) & Marion Ravenwood
___ Sallah & Mummy
___ Indiana Jones (Gloves) & German Mechanic
___ Rene Belloq, Ark, & Ghost
___ Indiana Jones (Crystal Skull) & Colonel Dovchenko
___ Indiana Jones (Gun) & Ugha Warrior
___ Mutt Williams & Irina Spalko

Mighty Muggs - not interested
___ Indiana Jones
___ Cairo Swordsman
___ Mola Ram

Other Stuff - Not interested
___ Taters of the Lost Ark
___ Role Play Whip



So basically I'm buying a lot of Raiders, gonna pick/choose KotCS, and definitely getting vehicles...  Multiples of anything army builder-ish for certain, including the truck, car, and motorbike.  I may wait on almost all the Deluxe but the bike though, and the 2-packs.

I also may skip the single-pack German for the 2-pack since they look like they're the same with the 2-pack having a green jacket variant (like Indy narfs his uniform on the U-Boat island).

KotCS army builders I"m definitely in on just so I finally have something other than US/German on my military shelf...  They'll go unarmed till I can find PPSH or Nagant rifles for them.

The Marion figure is dumb too...  There's a 2-pack with an army builder, why buy Marion carded then?

Are you guys going out late to look?  I'm thinking about heading out around midnight just to see what WM's putting out, if anything.

Rockin'.  Now I don't have to.  Thanks.

Here's what I'm probably definitely in for:

Raiders:  Monkey Man
             Belloq
            Sallah
            Cairo Swordsman
           
Skull:  Indy Rocket Launcher

Deluxe:  Marion with Henchman
            Nazis

Adventure Heroes:  Everything from Raiders

********************

Waiting on:

Whatever 3 3/4" Jacketed Indy I like best (can't tell right now which one--don't need seven or eight Indys in my collection)
Anything from Crystal Skull--until after I see it
Deluxe Indy with Ark (I'll know after 4/25)
Vehicles:  Clearance.  Probably.
12":  Clearance.  Deep, deep clearance--and only then for that bitchin' mail-in Ark
Mighty Muggs--only the Mola Ram, and probably only then on clearance

*******************

No interest:

Basic Marion
Deluxe Nazi with Motorcycle
Other Mighty Muggs except Mola Ram
Potato Head
Whip

I'll give this a go.  Looking at what I plan on buying though, and adding it up quick, it looks like over $200 on May 1st - and I don't think I can do that.  I might be spreading this out more, or passing on some things I originally planned on getting.  I'm still on the fence with vehicles, just due to the space issue for displaying them.  I used to think I'd just be happy with a SA Indy figure, so the rest of this is just gravy I guess.

I'm assuming that everyone here probably knows about this already, but in case someone doesn't--Target has a coupon for $5 off any toy purchase of $25 or more.  It's good until the first of October.  Here's a link where you can print four of them out on one piece of paper:

I'm planning on using a bunch of these during the launch and throughout the rest of the summer.

So, is everyone here heading out right away on Thursday morning - or waiting until the weekend?  I thought about going out that morning, but I'm wondering if everything will be out right away or not.  Aside from the ROTS toy release, our Targets seem to just "get to it when we get to it" with movie merchandise (Spidey, Transformers, and Iron man come to mind) - and I'm wondering if it will be out right away that day or not.  WM is the same way (they still only have the exclusive Iron Man repaint figure and nothing else from that line).  TRU seems to be a bit better, although a big chunk of their store seems to be dedicated to Speed Racer right now, so we'll see.

Anyways, with the recent 20% off/free shipping code, I went ahead and placed an order for the Raiders Adventure Hero sets.  They don't ship until later in May, according to the site, but I can wait if it means I can get them for $4.79 a pack (if the code holds for "preordered" stuff).  I'm considering doing the same thing with the deluxes I want, and just going out shopping for the basic figs next week.  That would make the "one day spending" look a lot nicer to the Mrs. :)

Title: Re: May 1st - What are you buying?
Post by: speedermike on April 28, 2008, 09:25 PM
I'm going to head out right after work gets out (2:55!  Hooray for teaching!) and I'll stop at a cool TRU where few people shop, but employees are helpful.  If that's a bust, there is a Traget and another TRU on the way home.

I'll be really pissed at Hasbro if these things aren't very easy to find.  I don't have ons of time to shop these days, but I'm a little worried that Hasbro will underestimate the desire for these.  I'm expecting a front end display at TRU, maybe the low long one that is on the right when you walk in in most stores.  I don't think Speed Racer will move out that fast.
Title: Re: May 1st - What are you buying?
Post by: Jesse James on April 28, 2008, 11:03 PM
Man, 2 TRU's on your way home from work?

I don't have a big commute but even if I did I know I wouldn't hit two TRU's on the way no matter what direction I went.  At best the nearest TRU is 45 minutes for me...  That's on a no-traffic Sunday.  I'm jealous to say the least any time basically everyone says the ammount of stores they have near them. ;)  My gf's highway into the city she lives off of finally is developing and just got a Target and 2 WM's in the last 4 or so years...  That's been a help for sure.  Too bad TRU's aren't building or I could wish for one of those.

Post by: CHEWIE on April 29, 2008, 12:06 AM
I scored some stuff at Target tonight (whoo hoo!!!) but plan on hitting Walmart at midnight Wednesday night, then Target at 8:00 AM, and TRU when they open (9:00 AM, I think).  Ought to find what I want on the first day.

BTW, I guess I've got it pretty good in my area.  There's two TRU stores that are very close, five Targets, and six Wal-Marts, all within 30 minutes of each other.  Some are only 5-10 minutes apart.

Post by: efranks on April 29, 2008, 02:21 PM
I wasn't planning on buying a lot of these figures but over the past few days I've been looking at more photos and now I'm getting kind of psyched over them.

I'll probably stop in Target on my way to work Thursday morning to see what they have.  I definitely want the RotLA Indy w/ jacket and I'm also thinking I'll get Belloq and the Cairo Swordsman.  I may also pick up the Deluxe Indy with Ark.

The rest of the figures I may make the call on when I see them in person like Monkey Man, Sallah and some of the KotCS figures.

I gotta admit, the German 2-pk is AWESOME.  Some of the best figures I've seen Hasbro make... I want about 4-5 more sets (have two so far).

Is wave 2 supposed to com eout may 1st? Is so that means i am goingt o have to go out.

I think Wave 2 has been out for several weeks now depending on the area.

Yeah, Wave 2 (KotCS) will definitely be out this weekend...  like Justin said, many folks have already found them mixed in amongst the RotLA figures.

I went to Target today to try to get these with the DCPI#, and they said they can't take anything out until May 4th. May 4th? ???


Some stores don't get the toy isle reset till 5/4 and won't sell the toys till then.

I think they are dated for Thursday E, but stores are leaking them.  Around here in Pitt that's how it is anyway and no leaks I know of so far.
Title: Re: May 1st - What are you buying?
Post by: efranks on April 29, 2008, 07:49 PM
Yeah, I've found leaked stuff before although no Indy stuff here yet.  But I was thinking that the street date meant that major retailers like WM, Target and TRU would have these stocked Thursday but it seems like some think stores might not have them out till Sunday.

I'm just hoping, I guess, that I won't be wasting time going Thursday morning to Target.  Target is about 2 blocks from my apartment and on the way to work so it's not a huge deal either way, I guess.

I don't know about Wal-Mart or TRU, but Target stores most likely won't stock the Indy stuff until they do the next aisle reset (the planogram is dated for Sun 5/4) which has the pegs/set-up for Indy and Hulk toys.

Around here (MN), my local Target has already reset for Indy (empty pegs at the moment) and the Toy lead at a second Target near me said that they will reset & stock on Wednesday night (after store close).  A third store where one of the MN guys works said that they won't put them out until they reset on Saturday night (for Sunday 5/4 date).

It's really going to vary from store to store I'd say, much like the Iron Man stuff.  Some Targets had the IM endcaps set up right away, while others waited almost 2 weeks to get the stuff out.   ::)

That's often the way it is here as well, so I might just hit TRU tomorrow to check things over.  Its the closest of the "big 3" to our house, and wouldn't take me long to run over there quick.  I'd like to check Target out, but for some reason I have the feeling they might wait until Sunday (they have in the past it seems), and they are a little bit more of a drive.  I may check them anyways, we'll see.  I don't know if I'll bother with WM or not, we'll see.  I think the Dark Knight stuff is supposed to be out tomorrow (or soon) as well, and I wouldn't mind getting the movie masters (6" scale) Batman/Joker if I see them.

All the posting about street dates and such and I realized that my Wal-Mart hasn't stocked Iron Man figures yet and only have a very small amount of Speed Racer which they snuck into the Hot Wheels aisle.

I'm thinking I'll hit Target in the morning, find nothing, and have to wait till Sunday (at the earliest) to find anything at retail.  I'm pretty confident that my WM won't actually carry this line.

Hit three Walmarts... and had a miserable outing.  At least a buddy went with me.

Store #1 - Nothing was out yet, nothing on pallets.  manager said it was being out sometime Thursday.

Store #2 - Nice employee had the stock room actually lower a pallet with a forklift that had Indy stuff - turned out to be a few cases of the "heroes" and 12" stuff, along with the whips.

Store #3 - Had all the Hulk and Batman stuff out on the pegs, but no Indy anywhere to be seen.

Post by: efranks on May 1, 2008, 09:40 AM
Found all of wave 1 today at Target and was kind of surprised.  There were only a couple Marion figures but multiples of everyone else from wave 1.  They all look pretty good and I could have easily bought the entire wave but didn't.

I picked up Indy (Hovitos Temple), Cairo Swordsman and Belloq along with a Deluxe Indy w/ Ark.

They had the Deluxe German Soldiers 2-pack, Indy w/ Ark, Marion/Cairo Henchman but that was it.  No Troop Car but the Cargo Truck was on the shelf.  The box was a little smaller than I thought it would be but still, that's a great looking vehicle.

They had some Adventure Heroes 2-packs but I didn't pay them much attention.  Role Play whip and Taters of the Lost Ark were stocked as well as the 12" versions of the German Officer and both Indy figures. 

Basically all the RotLA figures but nothing from Crystal Skull yet. 

I may stop on the way home at WM to see if they stocked them.  I might pick up the rest of wave 1 but we'll see.  I might hold out for later.

I forgot to look for the Batman figures but Target also had the Hulk stuff stocked today.  It was a quick stop so I didn't pay much attention except to notice they had a pretty large section for the figures compared to Iron Man.  And while the Hulk Hands (now in plush) have been out at my WM for about 2 weeks, it's still disheartening to see them knowing how they overran the toy aisle last time.

Went out to walmart this morning and picked up all of wave 2. Out of all the pegs they had they only had 1 Ugha Warrior and 1 female chick from the new movie. I think i was the first person there beucase all the pegs were full. Some guy came in shortly after me but only bought ROTLA figures. On a side note, i saw the Hulk figure and Batman figures. Hulk figures are terrible. Batman figures were too expensive at 11.97.

Post by: Brian on May 1, 2008, 10:15 AM
Just curious, but for those of you who are finding the Indy stuff, what is the basic figure price at the respective stores?  I'm planning on heading out later this morning to see if anyone has it out yet, but I wasn't sure what these would be running.  I thought I might just hit TRU (since its closest), but if WM or Target is significantly cheaper I'll wait.  I'm guessing our Target will wait for Sunday (they usually do), but you never know.
Title: Re: May 1st - What are you buying?
Post by: Neal on May 1, 2008, 10:37 AM
I don't intend to collect this line, but I do know that various collectors (myself included) hit a bunch of stores this morning, and not one single location had put the line out yet.  Awesome.
Title: Re: May 1st - What are you buying?
Post by: efranks on May 1, 2008, 10:54 AM
I paid $7.49 at Target here in NY for the basic figure and $9.99 for the Deluxe. And I used the Target coupon to shave $5 off the total.

I honestly didn't really pay attention to the other Indy prices so I can't comment on them.  I'm assuming the truck is $20 though...same price range as the SW Starfighter line. 

I'm interested to hear what WM and TRU are charging.

It's kind of crappy paying $7.50 for one figure when, right next to it, are 2-packs for $2.50 more.  I guess we can assume we'll also be paying this price, or more, for the SW figures when the lines reset in July.

I picked up the Truck and the Troop Car this morning at a Target - they are indeed $19.99 each. I combined each of them with a German Soldier and got both a vehicle and 1 Indy figure for $24 (including tax) after using the $5 off coupon.

I had picked up the complete RotLA wave last night at a different Target. I went to this one shortly after they opened hoping to find the KotCS figures, but they only had Wave 1 as well.

Same story with the Deluxe figures, only wave 1 (German Soldiers 2-pack, Marion/Cario Henchman, Indy w/Ark)

This was the first time I had seen the vehicles. The packaging doesn't show the Jungle Cutter vehicle on the back of the box, and the Truck and Troop Car were the only vehicles they had - so I'm guessing that's Wave 1 of the vehicle assortment.

Post by: evenflow on May 1, 2008, 11:27 AM
I also picked up the Indy with Horse, but passed on the rest becuase i preordered them over at HTS. With the 20% off and free shipping, it ends up being a little cheaper per figure.

I will check it out after I drop my son off at daycare.  I am not expecting to find much.  Everyone is going to me beat me to the punch today. 

I will be on the lookout for the German 2 pack, Indy with Fertility Idol, German Soldier, German motorcycle, Cargo truck and possibly the troop car.  I am not sure if the Indy with Horse is supposed to be out yet or not?  Basically I am trying to get the chase scene from Raiders going and finished.  Then I will go for other stuff like Belloq and the KOTCS stuff.  Spalko may be hard for me to resist if she is there.  I do like Mutt with the jacket and Indy with that Launcher. 

I was going to pick and choose this line but one thing leads to another.  I will have to get Marion and the Henchman 2 pack.  I will have to buy the Swordsman, MonkeyMan, and Sallah or I will have that nagging uncompleted feeling.  I have to get that chase scene done though. 

Man I wish they would make the Flying Wing with German Mechanic.  I guess it's good enough for now though.

The local WMs and Target don't have anything out yet (  ::) ) but TRU did, so I found the Temple Indy and Belloq I was looking for. They also had the Crystal Skull figures, and I wanted to buy Irina and Mutt, but the paint on the eyes was horrible.  They also had what I guess is the second wave of Deluxes, Indy w/ horse and a couple different Hovitos Temple Indy sets.

It was kind of disappointing to see they only had two cases, one for each wave. I thought this was going to be a genuine launch instead of a slow trickle.

Hasbro Toy Shop is showing basically anything that's out now in stock and at $6.99ea. Why is it that Hasbro is selling these for less than the retail price? Or is it the retailers who are just trying to push the price up? Either way it seems like Hasbro want's to gradually push buyers into buying from them instead of stores. Reminds of something Marvel did back in the early/mid 90's. A move that put a lot of comic shops out of business...

I preordered cases on this line. I'd rather pay the shipping, get the complete assortment and not waste a bunch of gas doing it. I don't have them yet but I can wait and it sounds like stores might be dropping the ball on this one. I'm pretty much only interested in ROTLA and TLC figures. I wasn't a big fan of TOD. I may change my tune though once I see these in person. I'd like to see them release updated versions of older playsets but since they have yet to put out an updated Death Star I doubt I'll see an updated map room or well of souls.

Today I hit two Targets - one had Wave 1 figures, grabbed 1-2 of each.  The same store had the vehicles and wave one deluxes, but I already had those so I passed, except for grabbing another Nazi 2-pk.

Hit three Walmarts - none had the figures out, but I was able to pop open a couple cases at one store of Wave 2 - so I got one each of that wave.

Hit TRU, they had about 3-4 cases of Wave 2 out, I grabbed a couple extras.  No deluxes or vehicles were there though, or even space for them.

Post by: efranks on May 1, 2008, 01:23 PM
I'm glad someone mentioned the paint apps.  I forgot this in my last post but I went through the entire rack of figures to find an Indy that I liked.  This is the one with the fertility idol from RotlA.  Most of them had messed up eyes that made Indy look crazed.  Finally found one with good paint apps. 

The other characters didn't seem to suffer the same problem.  Even the Cairo Indy and the Deluxe were mostly fine, just the version I was after...figures...

I wish I'd caught that 20% and free shipping coupon on HTS.com.  I would have ordered the truck and a couple more figures.  Oh, well.  I'll use the Target coupons.

I also wanted to mention that after seeing these in person I'm more impressed with them.  Especially figures like the German soldiers, Marion and Monkey Man.  They really look well done.  I'll be opening these when I get home so I hope they hold up as toys.

Post by: Pete_Fett on May 1, 2008, 01:24 PM
Ok - so at lunch I went to the TRU near where I work and I was able to pick up the following:

1x Indy w/Crystal Skull
1x Indy w/Bazooka
1x Mutt w/Sword
1x Mutt w/Snake
1x Cemetary Warrior
1x Russian Soldier
1x Colonel Dovchenko
1x Ugha Warrior

1x Indy w/Horse
1x Indy w/Temple Pitfall
1x Indy w/Temple Trap
1x German Soldier w/Motorcycle

They had several cases of Wave 2 Rev 2 and Wave 2 Rev 3 and neither case seemed to have an Irina Spalko - so that's the only figure I still need from the first two waves.

I'll probably try to pick up a couple more Ugha Warriors and Russian Soldiers (like I did with the German Soldier figure) but I'm going to wait on that.

The figures at TRU all rang up for $6.99 and the deluxe figures were the same as at Target, $9.99.

They had three cases of the vehicles assortment, but they were still closed and the employees were giving me a hard time for going through the open boxes so I wasn't about to open any of them. I'll go back after work and see if the Jungle Cutter is there, but I doubt it.
Title: Re: May 1st - What are you buying?
Post by: Brian on May 1, 2008, 02:37 PM
I made a run to TRU this morning and picked up most of what I was looking for.  They had both Wave 1 and 2 there (no Marions though), but didn't have the deluxe of the vehicles.  They had a modest section at the front of the store (a display aisle split with Dark Knight, Iron Man, Hulk, and Narnia).  Overall they probably just had a case of each there or so.  When I got home I realized that I forgot to grab the jacketed version of the KOTCS Indy, but that one hopefully won't be too tough to grab later.  I stopped off at the WM next to TRU to see if they had there stuff out, and they did.  It was just in the normal aisle next to Star Wars.  I was able to grab the Cemetery Warrior from KOTCS (TRU also didn't have that one), a few deluxes (German Soldiers, Indy w/Ark, Marion/Henchman), and decided to grab the Truck.

Overall, the only things I don't recall seeing at either store were the basic Marion figure, the deluxe Indy w/Horse and German Motorcycle, or - surprisingly - any of the Mighty Muggs or Tater (unless I missed them, wasn't looking that hard).  I'm with others that have mentioned it, the Mrs. isn't thrilled about me picking this stuff either.  I try to explain the "other things I could be spending money on", as well as the "Star Wars lull", but they don't seem to be hitting the mark this time :).  Overall, a big haul though I guess, and its nice to not have too much to look for for awhile now.  We should start a "May 1st Haul" thread like we did with ROTS stuff, just to see what everyone is finding and picking up :).  Oh, and the basic figs were $6.99 at TRU, $6.94 at WM here.

TARGET
9 Nazi Soldiers (3 Basic, 3 2-packs)
Indiana Jones (Cairo)
Indiana Jones with Ark
German Troop Car
German Truck

All cool stuff right here. The Nazis make good Imperial infantry, so I'll definitely have to get another 3-7 more. The Cairo Indy is surprisingly cool. The bendy whip/action feature are a lot of fun. The vehicles are superb. The boxes are nifty, and would be cool to see on Star Wars toys.

Post by: Morgbug on May 1, 2008, 10:11 PM
Canadian Indy debut was clearly a weird experience. 

Like jangotat I didn't find anything at Zellers (a lame Canadian parallel to Target, but probably closer to K-Mart).

Only one of four Walmarts had anything out and it was just one case of deluxe figures.  They clocked in at 16.92 per which is just too much for me when US retail is $9.99. 

TRU had some stuff out including vehicles, deluxe, 12" and ROTLA figs, but no KOTCS at all. 

I didn't spring for any of the single carded figures for a couple of reasons.  First, the price.  Not bad by Canadian standards at $9.99 for single figures but knowing there might be another HTS.com coupon and free shiping that'll take them down to half that price means I'm in no hurry.  The second reason is the bigger reason.  Indy's eyes, and it didn't matter whether it was the figure with the jacket or without, were like a two year old painted them on.  They are exactly like the photos that I was hoping were prototypes that were to be fixed, but nope.  I looked at every figure of those single carded Indy's and wouldn't and won't buy them.  I want the figs, I want the accessories that come with it, but that's one serious thyroid problem there.  And I could get it if it was a production run on just one of the regular figures, but both?  Quality control out sick the day those ran through?  Yeesh. 

Thankfully TRU had some mispricing on their stuff.  Never is TRU cheaper than Walmart in Canada on anything at regular price but at one of the stores they had the $9.99 SKU on the peg for the deluxe figures.  I took them to the scanner but they came up not on file.  So I went to the checkout and was honest saying don't know your price, checked, nada.  The girl went and grabbed the SKU off the pegs and ran them through at $9.99 each.  Not a big deal south of the border but it saved me $7+taxes on each of the four I bought.  Over $30 8)

So in checking over the figures, I found a couple of Indy's that looked ok.  I picked up and am happy with:
Indiana Jones with Ark
Indiana Jones with Temple Trap - I had zero intention of buying this, but it was the only decent ROTLA Indy
Marion Ravenwood and Cairo Henchman - the Marions are indeed identical and some have bad eyes too :-\
German Soldiers

I was hoping they'd have had Indy with horse and the German motorcycle at that price too, but none at either TRU unfortunately.

I'm hopeful the later Indiana figures in assortments are better done for the eyes, or I probably won't be buying them.  Honestly, they look that crappy.  Please, please Hasbro, don't butcher anymore of the eyes on these figures or this line is dead as a doornail before the movie ever comes out.

I ended up with everything I was looking for after stopping at WM, which earlier (around noon) didn't have anything out. I did find Spalko and the Indy w/ Ark there. I was going to buy the Indy figures from KOTCS, but all the figures there had eye paint that made them look cross-eyed.

I didn't see any Sallah or Monkey Man figures at all today, and only one Marion.

I thought that I'd be buying the 12" figures but after looking at them I couldn't bring myself to spend $20 on them.  The Indy figures, anyway, are a huge disappointment.

Post by: Brian on May 2, 2008, 10:31 AM
I ended up having to run a quick errand last night, so I then grabbed the other (jacketed) KOTCS Indy I forgot earlier.  All said, I think I found everything I was looking for aside from two deluxe figures - Indy w/Horse and the German w/motorcycle.  I preordered them on HTS as a back up, but they aren't shipping until mid-June so hopefully I'll see them at retail sometime.

I'm in the same boat as others where I'm a little bit disappointed in the Indy figures themselves (the ROTLA ones in particular).  I look at the jacketed version, and it seems almost like the "ultimate" Indy aside from those horrible eyes.  I looked through several trying to find a good version, and ended up settling for one that is decent.  Like it was mentioned previously, I think the KOTCS likenesses are more Harrison Ford-like.  Hopefully we'll get a better version down the road (maybe that is part of Hasbro's plan anyways so we'll buy more).  A new head on the jacketed Indy would probably do the trick.

As a side note - the KOTCS figures weren't "in the system" at our local TRU, although Wave 1 (ROTLA) was.  It might just be a mixup at our store, although they had no problems selling them anyways.  I'm curious how much interest this line will have.  I was the only one checking out the figures at the stores I visited, but granted, it was just the first day of release.  It seems like a few more were picked up, but overall, things looked pretty well stocked aside from what I bought as of last night.  I'm just curious to see what kind of legs this line will have.  I could see a lot of people buying just an Indy figure and being done with it.  Also, I didn't see the 12" figures, Mighty Muggs, or Tater at either store (surprisingly).  Wal-Mart had the vehicles, but only one of each of the Raiders ones.  I haven't visited Target yet, but will probably do so this weekend - so we'll see.

Yep, the paint apps are bad.  I think we all know it by now.  But I doubt they are going to redo every figure out there like Star Wars.  Unless of course it's Indy himself.  It's to bad.  Luckily I have seen enough figures out there to pick and choose between terrible apps and halfway decent ones.

Just looked over my list for the first time in a while and I've done very well sticking to my original intentions.  I do have to return the Indy with temple trap yet and find a good Indy/horse to buy but otherwise I'm nearly done until TLC/ToD stuff comes out.  I've kind of slacked on the ROTLA supporting cast a little bit, but I'm hoping for a sale of sorts to bring CDN prices closer to USD.

Here's a look at what Indy himself picked up (http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/showbiz/article-23484070-details/Indiana%2BJones%2Band%2Bthe%2Bhunt%2Bfor%2Bmemorabilia%3A%2B%2BNo.%2B1%2Bfan%2BHarrison%2BFord%2Bscoops%2Bup%2Bhis%2Bown%2Baction%2Bfigures/article.do).  I thought it was interesting seeing this, as you would think Ford would be the last actor to grab stuff (although its likely for his son or someone else).
