I'll seperate this from the other thread, if you have found any figures or anything Indiana Jones post your finds here! Please make sure to mention where you got it from (an price if on sale) to help the community out

The other night I finally found the missing deluxe sets - German 2 pack, Marion & Cairo Dude & Indy and Ark.

I only got the Germans. Needed to add more baddies for my truck. Marion's paint apps were off, so I'll hold out for a better one. The Indy/Ark 2 pack gives me minor concerns - I hope they release an Ark with loops and poles, so I may hold off to see if another one is coming for 08 or early 09.

Also picked up a Cairo Indy, really just for the whip and Grail Tablet.

Earlier in the week, I got a good Sallah and Cairo swordsman. Loving, loving the line!

Picked up KotCS jacket Indy & jacket Mutt from Target this morning. I've also got both on order with HTS (along with 3 Irinas, haven't seen her in the wild yet) but I couldn't pass up decent paint jobs, not knowing what I'd get in the mail. Haven't opened Mutt yet, still hoping for a bit better paint; he looks very Shia, but more like Shia in Transformers, wowed & a bit freaked out by giant robots running around. Indy's pretty cool! Now to find a Raiders version with good paint (or maybe the TLC one in a few months).

Side note: Indy's hat fits perfectly on Darth Bane. Strange, yes, but fun
Bane's head could be repainted & slapped on some Indy body (maybe a future one, like a Belloq-in-suit) and with a repainted hat could be some fan-fic nemesis for Dr. Jones.

Picked up 4 figures at my work today since it was payday. Picked up Sallah, Belloq, Cairo Indy, and a German Soldier. Come out to be 29.96 minus the 5 dollar target toy coupon and then my employee discount I paid about 21.50. So I basically got 1 figure for free. Then stopped at a Fred Meyer(local Northwest Store) Picked up a German Motorcycle and a Colonel Dovchenko. They had a sale going on and everything was a dollar off. So the motorcycle was 8.99 and the figure 5.99. Not to bad if I say so

My quest to obtain the sacred Marion went unfulfilled today, but at least I did NOT come home empty handed. Scored the PITFALL DELUXE INDY to pair with my oh-so-nifty Temple Trap. Plus, and this I was oh-so-excited-about, I found a lone MONKEY MAN lurking behind a vast sea of Mutts. (And too top it all off both man and the monkey had solid paint apps.) Woo-hoo! Today I may not have made Marion a part of my collection, but at least I have captured her treacherous little friend. . .




PS -- All my finds were at the Culver City Target. Paid the usual Target prices.

The one figure I have not been able to find, despite looking everywhere, has been the Cemetery Warrior. On top of that, I had the most trouble finding Marion, Sallah, and Monkey Man. Finally, though I stumbled upon one each of them at a Target.

I've heard others mention Spalko and Ugha Warrior as tough finds, but I've seen multiples of each at a TRU.

Guess it really depends on the buyers in the area. I imagine Spalko sells well locally because of customizers, troop-builders (minoring in customizing), and most especially scalpers who tend to pounce on action-women & lead-villain type figures (Padmes & Leias, not so much, but Wonder Women, Supergirls, Marvel Girls, etc... usually!).

Today the basic pegs were full even 15 minutes after opening; not sure if anything had been purchased, but there weren't any Colonels, Spalkos, Ughas, or a few others... but I could've built a nice little squad of Cemetary Warriors. Plenty of those!

I caved and bought both Mutts and the Ugha yesterday. I've now got all but the Whip Crackin Indy (which I will NOT buy) despite having vowed to only buy the Raiders Indy and Russians.

Dang those little relics and nice articulation!

Whip cracking indy isn't TOO terrible. I fiddled with the craption feature a little bit and as expected it doesn't work worth a heck, and he of course has the obscenely large holster, but just standing around he presents well enough. And his artifact is the grail tablet. I call they totally knew what they were doing with that one.


This evening I picked up an extra KOTCS with and without jacket Indiana's. One to swap a head for a ROTLA indy and the without jacket to swap bodies with the ark indy to swap a head (I'm getting dizzy) to make a streets of cairo Indy. That doesn't have a foolish action feature.

Sallah, the Cemetery Warrior and the Monkey Man do seem to be showing up a lot less frequently then everybody else. I've only seen them once (when I bought them) and the cemetery warrior I still haven't actually seen.

Well, after only buying two figures (German soldier and German with motorcycle), I went nuts yesterday and bought a bunch of stuff:

ROTLA Indy w/ jacket
Sallah
Indy w/ Ark
Marion w/ Cairo henchman
Germans two-pack
KOTCS Indy w/ RPG
KOTCS Indy w/ jacket
Ugha Warrior
Cemetary Warrior
Colonel Dovchenko
Russian Soldier

I passed on the two versions of Mutt Williams (that I saw plenty of), because every single one of them had the worst face paint apps that I've ever seen on a toy. I think knock-off toys have better apps! It was so disappointing. I'm not about to shell out the $12 for both figures, then have to crack out the fine detail paint brushes, trying to fix China's mistakes.

Didn't see the female Russian (forgot her name, Spock's daughter
) and passed on the whip-cracking Indy for now. I do plan on getting both of those eventually, along with the other Deluxe Indys. I have the remaining ROTLA figures on order from HTS that still have not shipped. I'll have to email them and ask... they were incompetent with the last order I placed there, after all.


Well other than the hit & miss paint apps, I'm really happy with these figures! I don't mind the plastic robes too much, although it begs the question of why Kenner could use real cloth effectively over 25 years ago (Monkey Man, Cairo Swordsman), but not now.

Yep, it sure is out! I'm in Los Angeles, CA btw and so this looks like the usual pattern of West Coast appearances first and then other parts of the country later on.

It's a really great vehicle and the rubbery curtain on the right side of the cockpit was a nice surprise. Usually that part would be part of the plastic mold.

Earlier I bought the cargo truck, Mutt with jacket (and mostly decent pain apps
), and a second Indy with horse (keeping one carded because I expect to see the horse corrected to white). The horse is a great toy! Fully posable, more so than the Lord of the Rings 6" scale horsies. I'm glad that the saddle and reins are removable... it makes customizing the horse easier
Thinking about getting another just for the hell of it and making the horse black for... well, anyone, maybe even Luke Skywalker

Picked up the Cairo Indy tonight. Originally I wasn't going to get him because of the crappy action feature, but since I've decided to collect most of the line I went ahead and got him. I'm getting all of the Indys first and then I'll move on to other characters. I took the whip from the KOTCS Indy w/ jacket and gave it to to him and for just sitting on a shelf he's not too bad.

How about making him into the Last Crusade Horse?

Yesterday I picked up the deluxe German Soldier set, Indy w/ Ark, and Irina Spalko.
In addition to those, I have the German Soldier, Whip- Cracking Indy, Cairo Swordsman, and Monkey Man. With a bit of work (forcing the head down onto the peg) you can get a sweet Cairo Indy from the deluxe w/ ark and whip- cracking action:

Well, I guess I'll start searching next week or so then.

You can see it in the trailers when good ol' Indy fires his rocket launcher at it.


But I'll wait as well.

I gotta say...I am really impressed with this line so far from what little I've seen and been able to pick up. And folks are posting some great shots here...keep it up! It's making the hunt fun again!

I picked up the last 4 figures I needed from the Raiders wave today. Monkey Man, Marion, Indy with Jacket and the Cairo Swordman. Found them all at my work this morning. I love working at Target with my discount plus the 5 dollar coupon thing.

Local TRU was wiped out of Indy Figures aside from a few KOTCS Indys and Mutts. Target near TRU fared better, a lot of Raiders figures and a German Troop Car. Got a Deluxe German 2-pack. Still looking for the Cargo Truck, Cemetary Warrior, and Irina Spalko. They're tough to find in my area.

got the rocket launcher indy today. Painted his hair brown, gave him a whip and a hat and he made an awesome Cairo indy. great figure. That head scult this and the other KOTCS share is really just about perfect in my opinion.

The wife snagged me another Cem. Warrior while at Target a little bit ago, she calls me and asks if the little skull guy was the one I told her to keep an eye out for.
God I love her......
