Question is tnswman, Just how hard are you going to kick your self when you see these on the store shelves in a few months?


I won't a bit....I think the price is fair if it means I get them early.....I do not have patience when it comes to Indy toys LOL! I just won't think a thing about it if I win these.

And with that, I do my Victory dance

Now I just have to ask the seller to quote some express shipping and I will be having some Mini Indy adventures soon

I can't believe they went for so cheap

AGREED! I'm glad you're happy with your transaction. I remember you going for the 2 day shipping on your Disney Indys. You really don't know the meaning of the word patience, do ya?

I love the Playskool Star Wars line. They are indeed cute (I just said it in the LEGO topic so I guess it won't hurt to say here). If I had a niece or something, I'd get these things for her to get her hooked to SW. I'd do the same with these Indys. But since that's not the case, even the retail prices are too much for me! I got more "adult" things like action figures to buy. Hahaha.

sure I do... I just choose not to use it with these toys... As always, It's my business.....Whoever does not like it is just jealous. don't worry, you will get your toys too.

I hate that I can't pick and choose, I buy multiples of EVERY "official" Indy toy. No questions asked about price or product.

Hey man,
congrats on the win! There is nothing Lucasfiim can produce which you cannot purchase. HA ha. Which actually brings me to a question. Where do you draw the line? I try to buy all the Indy figs. I don't always buy all the other characters like the ones from Disney. I am kicking myself now though. Anyway I've seen some collections where people have the Kermit "Indy" or a Mickey "Indy". I put Indy in quotes because they aren't really Indiana Jones items. So where do you draw the line with what you do buy and what you don't?

Thanks guys!!! I keep it simple. I buy any "official" Indy collectible. Be it Disney, Muppets, Kubrick, It does not matter to me. As long as it is an official release, I will buy it. from Photos to posters and magazines to the most expensive collectibles like the Star Toys figures and the Toys McCoy line. The only thing I do not care about is the Indy "gear" I have a Hat and that is enough for me.

Yes you can justify it... It's new Indy toys.. You justify it by being a SUPER collector and supporting the line See how easy that was LOL!! Now you can sleep well when you buy them

When I was 4 Star Wars came out. When I was 5, the Kenner SW toys came out. I loved those toys. I didn't nor would have wanted some cute cartoonish versions to play with. I hated the SW Adventure Heros and absolutly despise the Indy ones.

Wow! You don't like the cute little "warm and fuzzies", do you? Personally I love them! Hope we get a lot more of these things to get the little ones interacting with our beloved Indiana Jones universe.

First LEGO, now Playskool? I didn't even play with these things but think they're cool! I agree, as a child I probably wouldn't want them if I had the choice to play with figures, but I know some parents don't give the kids the option so I'd be better off with these than nothing. And I also bet little girls who are SW fans love these things because they're so cute. I've met two guys now while in the store buying these things for their daughters while they're getting the figures from themselves. They all seemed pretty excited to get them.

You didn't support the line. You bought them from another individual who had them for sale. You supported that person. Supporting the line means you pay Hasbro since they are the ones making the toys.
