Almost forgot to share the super cool Gentle Giant Indy bust I got for my b-day.
Found some awesome collectibles when I was at FYE today. Really happy with these purchases. FYE has a Buy 2 get 1 75% off sale on pops.
Won a vintage Kenner Well of Souls playset to go w/the Indy figures I got last week. Missing a few of the snakes, but I'll take my time and add them as I go. It actually comes w/a near mint box, which typically doesn't mean much to me, but it's a cool bonus.
The line itself is pretty small, so I might just go ahead and get the entire thing now. Would still need Map Room playset, Streets of Cairo playset, Arabian horse and German Cargo truck as well as Map Room Indy and mail-away Belloq. There's also a 12" Indy that recycles the Kenner Han Solo 12" figure. Looks pretty good, but the hat for him is atrocious.
Just snagged 4 vintage LJN Dune figures; Paul, Stilgar, Feyd and Rabaan. Been wanting to start my Dune collection for a while, as it's my favorite novel and the David Lynch adaptation (on which these figures are based) is one of my favorite movies, but the figures are a bit on the rare side. Got lucky as these were all listed @ the same time by a seller. Only 2 more figures in the line, plus a Sand Worm and a Spice Scout, which I want to pick up.
I love my 12" Indy. You can tell Indy apart from Han Solo, Indy has blue eyes and has a rather oddly rosy skin tone. His hat is felt, but his outfit overall looks great.
I really want the other vintage figures, been eyeballing the map room and thinking of picking it up in pieces.
I was trying to figure out why your Indy GG bust looked different than mine and realized mine's from TOD, hence no idol, but he's similar w/ flinging his whip around.
Most of my Indy stuff - my mint in baggie Marion and Toht are taking a nap on top of Indy-potato box. I have a KOTCS playset also that I've never displayed.
@PadmeLeiaJaina Very cool! The 12" Indy is on my want list for sure (Though I may leave the Paddington Bear hat off of him when I do). I see you have the vintage 3 3/4" Kenner figs as well. @ this point I'll probably try to complete the entire Kenner line, then may move on to the LJN line (Only 3 figures there, but like the Kenner line they're kinda rare and pricey). After that I'll chase the TOD lunchbox (I know there are 2 or 3 variants) and the TOD promotional glasses. Really not a whole lot of vintage Indy merch out there.
Some friends and I made a road trip to Kokomo, Indiana today to one of the best toy shops in the Midwest. They have a nice mix of vintage and modern, the prices are good and the staff really nice. To top it off, Kokomo is a nifty little town.
Picked up; G.I. Joe: Vamp II Jeep, Dreadnock Thunder Machine, Cobra Pogo and Cobra B.A.T. figure. Battlestar Galactica: Cylon Raider ship and Daggit figure.
I obviously concentrated on vintage, but to give you an idea of the store, here was their Pop Vinyl section (w/some more on the endcap and around the other side!).
Wow that's a lot of Pops! It's a good thing my Toy Anxiety shop is too far for me to drive across the valley to get to.
One of these days I have to get over there to Toy Anxiety, I have always heard good things about that shop
I always try to bring some stuff to trade because otherwise it's just murder on your wallet. I got like a 1/3rd of my Hasbro 12" figures there loose (including my Patrol Dewback.) They have a very large Star Wars selection.
