#3: Indiana Jones Russian soldier

Clearances! I only got this guy because he was on clearance for three dollars. In a way, I am sad to see the Indiana Jones line dead, especially before the Temple of Doom wave. We had Temple of Doom on VHS when I was a kid, so it's the movie I think of when I think of Indy. Now I may never get a Short Round or Mola Ram figure. Things could have worked out differently, but I don't think the Indiana Jones line realistically had much chance of lasting too long anyway. At this point, I already had an Indy and a Sean Connery figure, and aside from the Temple of Doom figures, that was all I wanted. Well, I wouldn't mind getting a Grail Knight too, but I have yet to see one on the shelves. But with the clearance, having a communist was too good an opportunity to pass up. He and Tony Stark can sit down and have discussions about the relative merits of capitalism and socialism.

Oh, and not pictured is the artifact he came with: the Ankh of Osiris.
