saw a bunch of basic figs at walmart in the gta $9.92.   Saw a few more at planet x.  $15 (i think, generally overpriced anyway.)

Saw most of Wave 1 of these down at a K-mart in Cincy. They were $7.99 there. I ended-up buying just the first Indy. It's quite good. Looking at them on the pegs, they all had a GI Joe vibe to them.

Swung by a couple 24hr Wal*Marts on the way in this morning...

Taters of the Lost Ark potato head for $14.99  :indifferent0020:

Musical hat and the package is a lot bigger than the SW/Spiderman/Transformer packages.

and that's it for Indy... :~/~:

(no unopened cases on the floor...maybe tonight?)

None of local walmarts had them out this morning( no suprise here) , but did see them at TRU. This is pretty much out of character for me but I did not even buy 1 figure ,although the roleplaying whip did apeal to me ;)

The figures just don't look that great, the Disney store ones were much better. I will probably break down and get a couple and pick up some more when they go on sale.

Now that you have seen them in person, what does everyone think of them? Maybe those who opened them up can give some reviews :)`

Some weird stuff out there.

Zellers - nothing at all.

Walmart - only one of four stores had anything and only a couple of deluxe (tomb trap, German motorcycle) at $16.92

TRU - some basic figs, some deluxe, vehicles.  Reg figs $9.99.  Some of the deluxe scanned at $16.99 but some at $9.99 :sign0065:  I bought the $9.99 deluxe figs - German two pack, Marion and Cairo thug, Indy and Ark, Indy and golden Idol trap.  Rest scanned at $16.92.  Something's screwed up there. 

Wanted to buy the basic Indiana figures too, but the eyes were all too buggy.  Even a lot of the deluxe version eyes were screwed too, but I found a couple of decent pieces.  I'd really rather have had the basic Indy with jacket and idol, but couldn't find a good one, so opted for the dlx version. 

Don't know how this line is going to do up here.  Too much speed racer, iron man, Narnia and Transformers.  There's a whole wall of Transformers at TRU now. :mad0218:

very unsuccesful trip which ended with stupid zellers employees telling me the world wide debut was tommorow...and then getting counterfeit money after buying a sw figure. :mad0137:

I also found nothing at my local Zellers (although in my case, the employee told me the overnight staff had misplaced their Indy figures and could only locate the Indy lego toys). 

Better luck at TRU where they had put out some deluxe and some basic figures. Not all of the deluxe packs were there (no Ark+Indy, no Marion+Cairo Swordsman).  Since I have a very limited toy budget nowadays, I decided to only buy the Raiders Indy with the fertility idol and the Deluxe Indy with the SA horse (always wanted a SA horse!)

Main criticisms:
- almost all the basic Indys had terribly painted eyes. He looked either bug-eyed or as though he were trying to half-wink with his left eye.  I bought the least silly-looking one out of the lot.  The head sculpts on all the Indys didn't remotely resemble Harrison Ford either.
- while basic Indy has a short neck peg and seems a bit too short, the Deluxe Indy has long legs and is a bit too tall (I'm using my SW figures here as a "standard")
- $17 for the Indy+horse is too expensive; should've been more like $15 incl tax.

Positives:
- you get some nice accessories with Raiders Indy... both the coiled and uncoiled whip, pistol, idol, and "secret" relic in a nice fake wooden box.
- I do like the packaging that the basic and dlx figures come in. Very nice design and form factor. Certainly better looking than the white blandness of the forthcoming SW Legacy line.

Hopefully they will eventually release an Indy that has a way better face sculpt and paintjob. The conspiracy theorist in me says they are waiting on year2 to really pull out the stops on this line so that we have to rebuy some of these characters again e.g. Indy with Gree-style ball-jointed hips.   And I'm hoping for a Toht with optional "melty face" head!

  I picked up the Basic Indy tonight at my TRU.. the paint and sculpts are junk.. to put a small point on it, the cashier looked at the fig and said "Looks like Don Knotts".  I grabbed the best of four and I'm still a bit disappointed.  I'll look out for an Indy with Horse.  My Daughter will go absolutely bonkers over the horse.
