Grabbed a lone Last Crusade Indy from the Super Wal-Mart in North Aurora, IL off of 59 earlier tonight. That's all they had there. But they also had the new GI Joe wave with Snake Eyes and Wild Bill, so they are getting stock. I'd bet they'll have more LC stuff there in a week or so.

Edmonton. The selection is pretty dodgy here in many places, too, although I haven't checked out any of the Toys R Us locations yet.

Like I said, I could easily find the rest of the figures (minus the elusive Henry, Sr., perhaps) if I was willing to shill out the cash at a comic store, but I refuse to be ripped off.

I'll be going to Texas this week, so maybe I'll score some there.

Where in Texas are you heading? I am in San Antonio and have managed to find all but Vogel. They definitely aren't out in abundance here though.

I broke down and decided to roll the dice and order one of my last needed two online. We'll see how it turns out; I ordered Vogel off amazon at a slight mark-up, but nowhere near the ridiculous prices I've seen Henry Sr going for. I'm hoping that the act of ordering it online will kick fate into action and suddenly all of the stores near me will start getting them in stock and putting them out. (It happened when I ordered the Troop Car, so here's hoping!)

Man the Toys R Us nearest to my house really scaled down the Indy stuff. I had to look twice to find it's section. All they had were 3 pegs full of figures and a couple deluxe figures. I was like "Where the hell did the full aisle of them go to?" Anyway, I don't have much hope of finding the TLC wave anytime soon. I will just have to roll the dice with the paint apps from HasbroToyShop I guess? I don't want to wait to long for them.

I got my INDY w/ Tie like a week ago, and has the best paint job!!! The rest of the LC wave is due to ship to me in 2 days, (FEDEX 2-DAY SHIPPING), right now there sold out of all the Henry Sr, Vogel and Elsa.

FINALLY!!! LC figures have started to show up here in Tennessee!!! I went to both my Wal-Marts and one of my Targets and there they were!!

I found a great paint ap of Indy w/Tie, Vogel and Elsa at the first Wal-Mart I visited. Then I headed to the Target down the street (thinking I was kidding myself that any LC figs would be there) and low and behold all six of them were there...I picked up the best paint ap of Young Indy and Henry that I could find but was unsatisfied with the only Grail Knight that was available. It looked like somebody painted his face with their eyes closed...and I'm a paint ap SNOB!

So I took a chance on the second Wal-Mart in my area (and a 25 minute drive) thinking that if the one close to my house had gotten them, then the other one might have them as well. Sure enough, they did and I found my pristinely painted Grail Knight!

ALL SIX in the space of an hour and a half! It was worth the wait! I'm glad I only spent $7 on each of them instead of the outrageous $12 - $15 per figure that I've been seeing on some of these online shops and on ebay!

Austin. I hope to squeeze a few Indy figure hunting trips into my schedule if I can.

Congrats, man! I've been anxiously awaiting that day myself, though I got lucky and found several of them right off the bat when they first started showing up. That case must have been a fluke though, cause I've not seen them anywhere since (and I live in an area with 5 Walmarts, a Target, and a Toys R Us all within easy driving distance from each other--takes about 2 hours or so to hit them all in an afternoon.) Hopefully that day will come by the time the Vogel I ordered comes in the mail, so I can have backup choices in case of a bad paint app.

Finally found the LC wave at retail last night. They only had the Indy, which is the only one I needed, but the lines at that Wal-Mart are always ridiculous so I ended up putting it back.

Glad you found them, sorcerer

I think Wal-Mart's philosophy is to construct as many lanes as possible and then staff then with as few cashiers as possible. You know, because those salaries are so high.

Glad to hear these are finally showing up at Target! I only need Vogel, but I have only spotted the wave a couple of times at Wal-Mart and most of the Wal-Marts here are over loaded with waves 1 and 2 while most Targets have rather bare Indy sections.

I have officially seen the LC figures in not one but THREE Targets here in Nashville!

Unfortunately Target has their IJ action figures priced at $7.99

But they are popping up at Targets nonetheless!

*sigh* I wish I could get a figure in a bricks-and-mortar store here for $7.99. The RRP in the UK is £6.99 ($14). I know your all going to tell me that we get Doctor Who figs etc cheaper and that it costs to import toylines, but it's still busting my wallet

Frankly, if we see LC figs here before September and ToD figs by Christmas, I'll be suprised.

The Wal-Mart on 64 (North Ave) in St. Charles, IL (Chicago's far western suburbs) have a few of the LC Indy. The TRU next door has nothing new other than Mighty Muggs and the die casts. Same with the Super Target across the street. The Wal-mart and Target on Randall Road in Batavia, IL (same area) have nothing new either.

I'm not hitting another Wal-Mart or Target for these things until I see everyone on this thread talking about seeing LC figures galore.

Hey, that's close to my area (Dekalb, IL!) In fact, I found my Spalko and Cemetary Warrior figures at that very Walmart in St. Charles back when those two were the hardest to find. Too bad I already found an LC Indy. If you see any of the rest of the line in that area, let me know!

This is my area, too. Hilarious.

My Target has nothing new, but has reorganized the pegs, so the new Indy section is very tiny. That can't be good, can it?

I've seen them all except for Sallah and Marion Ravenwood Wal Mart in Bennington VT just got the Lost Crusade figures, they had a few of Henry ( I know that will be hard to find later on) plenty of Indy from LC and a few Spalkos a German Soliders. I got the last Vogel I can't wait until they make one's of Mola Ram the Big Thugee and Short Round.

I did my weekly scouting of the local stores that have Indiana Jones stuff (Toys R Us and Walmart). No sign of any LC toys yet, however, Toys R Us finally got the Indy and Mola Ram Mighty Mugs as well as the Akator Race game. I did purchase something Indy related at Walmart, but I'll report on that in the New Acquisitions thread.
