Yep, that's the one I'm probably going to cave in and get. I mean, you get Indy, Irina, and....ANTS!!!!

well,

The stores will be stocking the Indy stuff as it gets released into the system. I plan on getting ONE of EVERYTHING and 2 of EACH figure...Probably more of the troop builders. I'm going for EVERY toy product being made. That's just my sickness though LOL!

You get a BUNCH of figures with Akator..Including Indy, Mutt, Irina, Soldiers, 3 "akator Skeletons", Conqistadors and two Ugah warriors.

Wait till after May 1st LOL!! My new shelves are a little Bare.. Although THANKFULLY, I do have what new Items I got early LOL!

My goal until May 1st is to get at least ONE new Indy item a week If I end up getting everything early then SWELL!! At least this week started off good.

I was able to hold the New Indy figures from The Crystal Skull They tried EVERYTHING to get them to come up in the register, just for those two figures and they would not yet

The Super Articulated Indy is AMAZING

Yeah I plan on swapping the head of the whip-action Indy with the articulated jacket Indy if possible.

Since they essentially come from two differnt lines, Let's just hope that they fit.. The Neck / head ball on the Cairo Indy is VERY small.

Little sculpy will fix anything

I'm really wanting to just blow th 80.0 0and get that set since it's the first "new" toy out....Hopefully they'll still have it at lunch since there was only one left. Are you seeing the other sets anywhere else?

LOL!! Yeap, Sculpy will..Even if it limits movement It will look amazing.

My store was holding the case for me until I came in....They know that I am all over Indy ( since I talk about it with them each day as I organize the release for them LOL! )

She said that they get it in on the truck 2 days ago and it was the only thing out of the new Indy toys that would scan. So, We had 3 of them total so far...If it is like the other Lego sets, the rest of thesets will soon follow.

I'm actually surprised that the 1st item out is the item with all of the secrets LOL!

Youmay have mentioned this somewhere else, but are the mystery artifact crates plastic or flimsy cardboard?

I went to my Wal Marts today and they were in the dark as usual. TNSWMAN, do you have the sku number off the receipt for the stuff you got so I can take specific numbers into them to look up? They just kind of look at me like I'm stupid when I mention anything Indy.

yeah, I called a store and asked if they had any Indy stuff in their system yet and I heard the lady on the line say "Go check and see if we have any Indiana Jones toys yet" and then she was liek "sorry we don't have any" And hung up, I was thinkin "that's not what I ment"

Seriously, go talk to a toy department manager and tell them that you KNOw they are getting the stuff in.. Don't let them play you...I'm telling all of you.. You will HAVE to oversee this whole operation since there is no midnight release.. these people think they can just put stuff out a little at a time.

Great stuff,Tnswman.

In my opinion,It's a great thing that lego doesn't have descriptions for their action features..It doesn't give to much away and still keeps us guessing.

Wow this looks to good to be true cool pictures.
Well theres the little skeletons spinning around on that thing i wonder what that could mean.I have a feeling Mutts gonna kill Spalko in the temple while Indys trying to figure out how the skulls work,then they run out of the temple before it collapses or something.

the table where the Akator skeletons are make me think of the Goonies LOL!! In the end where they go on the Pirate ship. That was a COOL scene.

Well, I have recruited my 8 year old son to help me construct this so it won't take me the normal 15 years to build LOL!

I will take more pictures of anything anyone wants to see

Just let me know.

What's the pillar opening on the top? Have we seen anything like that in the trailors?

The table with the three Akator skeletons -- it looks like that description of the 3 alien bodies on a throne. Big ass diamond (crystal?) behind them.

And near Mutt there's what appears to be gylphs of the phases of the moon, too. Hmm.

Also, Spanish conquistador skeleton! Yay!

edit: Are there any spoilers in the building manuals?
