Everywhere I loook they say these figures will be released May 1st. I was wondering if they are going to do with the Indy figures like they did with most other movie line figures like Phantom Menace and Spiderman. The boxes will be date coded and will not be displayed or sold until May 1st and they will have a huge display or if they will trinkle in like the Joe figs.

I'd say that since they are part of a major motion picture then they will hit en masse around the first of May and not trickle in like the Joes. Probably be like Spider-Man 3 and Transformers from last year as far as distribution goes. Or somewhere in the ballpark.

that is EXACTLY what they are doing. The stores will start building stock in about a week all through the month of April

I don't think these toys will command as much interest as the Transformers or Star Wars has

 

Historically(I have no better choice of words)these figures were never a good seller

 

Back in the day they sat as pegwarmers

But I have people coming in asking for them all of the time (I work part time at TRU), so maybe that won't be the case this time. There are a lot more colelctors these days, and I think that's going to be the biggest market for these, despite the fact that Hasbro might want a child market.

 

As for the release date, I'm sure the cases will be street dated, and we'll have to wait until that date to put them out. I know the Iron Man movie figures were that we. We had those for a good month and a half, and I wasn't able to put them out until this past Saturday, because that was what they were street dated for.
