I would have probably got it but the pre-order price is 230$,way too expensive for me and i don't think its worth this much money.160-180$ maybe but not for this price.

It's up for preorder at Sideshow now:

http://www.sideshowtoy.com/?page_id=4489&sku=901264&ref=home&new&preorder

It's funny but the price is less than I thought it would be. I know Hot Toys products well and I was sure this was going to be in the $300 range with everything it was coming with. I'm as pleasantly surprised as anyone willing to shell out a few hundred for a toy can be. :wink:

Sideshow is selling it for 250$ even more expensive then the other place i saw it at.With tax and shipping it will be close to 300$ i find it a bit expensive for a figure that as already been done a few times before even if its the best one yet i won't dish out that kind of money.

Yeah, it's $234 at BBTS if anyone wants to go there.

The only high-end 1/6 Indy figures that have been made that I know of are the Toys McCoy one from around 10 or 11 years ago, and the Sideshow version(s) of the last couple of years. So there really isn't a long history of Indy figures in the scale.

The Sideshow Raiders of the Lost Ark Indy is good but the body is loosey goosey and the costume quality is disappointing. The jacket feels like paper and the head always seemed a little too big for the body too. The environmental pieces Sideshow made were excellent. It's good for the price (and it was expensive too) but it doesn't compare to a Hot Toys figure in any respect. Once you've been spoiled by Hot Toys, nothing seems quite as good. You'll probably be able to get the Sideshow version for a good price now.
