From www.toynewsi.com (http://www.toynewsi.com); this is awesome news. Hopefully the Star Wars team will work on the sculpts.

"Indiana Jones, the world’s greatest action hero, returns to theaters May 22, 2008, and his newest on-screen adventures will be supported by an impressive array of leading companies as part of a broad global licensing and promotional campaign across a wide range of product categories designed to appeal to all ages.

In the toy category, Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE:HAS) will develop a broad line of action figures, vehicles and role play as well as games.

LEGO, the world’s best-selling construction toy brand, has also come on board as the exclusive licensee for building sets."

Vehicles? Does Hasbro expect that kids are going to buy Indiana Jones tanks or jeeps or some other 1950's vehicle? I'd say an extesnive toy line is about twenty to twenty-five years too late.

Action figures are a great idea. I think a lot of ADULTS will buy them. I hope Hasbro doesn't fool themselves into thinking that the primary customers of this line will be kids.

It depends what the nature of the storyline for Indy IV is.

We've heard rumors of Atlantis and Area 51. So either one could offer fun vehicles for kids. Though I'd rather they go Area 51... as Atlantis has been done to death now.

The quickest way for me to avoid seeing this movie would be for them to focus on Area 51 or aliens.

I am going to walk into this movie with very low expectations. I was about 12or 13 when the last one hit so I am not expecting to recapture my childhood with the new movie. Don't expect to much and the movie might be enjoyable.

I am hoping to get a good figure of Indy. Maybe a good Neca version or an unleashed and I will be happy. I really don't see starting an Indy collection. Then we will get the "whip" Indy and Indy with special gun hat, and Indy with moon boots. Who wants to go down that road?

I think Hasbro's the right company for a toy line of action figures at this time, in my eyes it'd be either them or Zizzle and Zizzle just ain't big enough. Hopefully Hasbro won't blow it.

figrin bran
06-20-2007, 10:37 PM
I would've loved to see Zizzle get the license but the lack of any info or pics of waves 2 and 3 of the AWE line makes me lose confidence in them.

Now imagine if Hasbro repaints a Cantina Han and slaps a fedora on his head!

Great list RealDubya! Man, Im really excited about this line, really hope they include the first three movies in this line. Knowing Hasbro, they probably will... $$$ to be made! This line has GREAT potential!
I really dont care if they do have the "squeeze the legs" for quick draw action as long as they dont have those big annoying buttons sticking out of the figures back!!!
Wonder how long it will take for Hasbro to give us any details? Hope we dont have to wait for toyfair next yr!

Me neither. Hopefully they will stick to the Star Wars and new GI Joe model and just make great, accessory rich action figures. They could also do Sopito (Alred Molina's character from ROTLA.) ROTLA Indy should include the Hovito Idol. With John Hurt rumored to play Albert Einstein in the 4th movie, that too would make a great, hilarious figure. With theory of relativity time-warp power blaster!

Question is though: will Nazis, Indy and villians have guns or walkie talkies? :lipsrsealed:

Well its a very positive sign that Lego is doing Raiders sets and last crusade, so HOPEFULLY hasbro follows suit! I would be happy if they reissued the old kenner map room and nazi truck. Think of the great posibilities for this line... accessories like the lost ark, holy grail and the sankara stone (temple of doom).

Bearing in mind that Lucasfilm almost certainly has final say in the design of any Indy toys, it's a pretty safe bet that they'll insist Hasbro go with what's worked best in the past for their other prominent license. I'd be truly shocked if we got anything drastically different from Star Wars here.

I'm getting more excited about the possibility of an Indiana Jones action figure line since I haven't seen one in stores since the early 1980s. I've been buying 21st Century Toys 4" WWII German soldiers (Europe (http://www.21stcenturytoys.com/images/popups/D-DaySoldiers_sm4.jpg) & Africa (http://www.21stcenturytoys.com/images/popups/3DakSoldiers_lg1.jpg)) from their current D-Day assortment that's hitting Wal-Marts now so I'll have plenty of bad guys for Indy to fight.

So what Indy toys (http://www.theraider.net/information/collectibles/index.php) (if any) do you guys have in your collections? Any vintage Kenner stuff or LJN's Temple of Doom figures? How about Galoob's MicroMachine box set? The expensive 12" Japanese imports? Or Disney's recent figure line and micro vehicles?

Here's what I have:

Kenner
I have most of the figures except for the mail-order Ceremonial Belloq. I also have the Map Room playset and an incomplete (missing a few snakes) Well of Souls playset, which is my pride and joy. I still have the figure cardbacks, instructions, and boxes for the playsets.

I missed out on the Arabian Horse, Desert Convoy Truck, and Streets of Cairo playset (with Monkey Man & Marion). I remember seeing them at large toy stores, such as Children's Palace (early version of TRU), but simply couldn't afford to get them.

LJN
I had no idea this company made Temple of Doom figures until I was an adult.

Galoob
I have the MicroMachine box set from 1995. Great little set with all three films represented. I loved Galoob's stuff from the early 90s, mainly collecting their classic aircraft and Star Trek packs; it wasn't long before their first SW sets appeared.

Disney
None. Only way to get this stuff is to visit a park or from eBay resellers. I thought it was funny that Disney allowed swastikas on some of the toys though. Only Disney could do that.

master J
06-27-2007, 07:27 PM
I have some of the Raiders toys; map room, indy, belloq, indy in german disguise, german mechanic, the swordsman and toht. I also have the LJN Temple indy and thugee guard plus one of the disney indy's, picked it up at disneyland a few years ago.
I have not been this excited for a new toy line since star wars made a comeback in 95! So many possibilities... they really have to include all 4 movies though, just the new film would be a waste of the license.
I was just looking at the map room playset, they could easily reissue that. Still looks great! Temple of Doom and Last Crusade are begging for good action figures.
Wonder how long till Hasbro comments on their plans for this line?

LEGO is due to release sets based on the first three films several months before the fourth movie premieres, so hopefully Hasbro will follow suit and develop toys for Raiders/Doom/Crusade as well.

If Hasbro does sandbag the 3-3/4" line with too many action features, they could produce super-articulated VOTC-style figures on retro cardbacks to appease adult collectors. Still, I'd rather have a decent action feature-free basic line at a cheaper price.

I thought about that. I think the ideal thing to do (within good taste and as not to offend any parents) is to make the armbands, officer caps, etc with the red and the white MINUS the swastikas. That way they maintain accuracy and we can paint them on ourselves. :D

There's no way Hasbro or any other toy retailer in their right minds would ever put Nazi insignia on toys. 21st Century Toys' WWII German soldiers and vehicles do not have the swastika on them. You can buy decals and armbands from enterprising collectors online though. However, 21st did make an online exclusive 16-figure S.S. (http://smalljoes.com/german_ss_schutzstaffel.shtml) set that had the Nazi armbands.

Can you imagine if Indiana Jones had as extensive a toy line as Star Wars so that it got to the point where collectors were insisting they make a Hitler from Last Crusade?

Special Offer! Der Fuhrer figure! Offer details inside!

Or you can customize an Admiral Ozzel figure. Same actor played both roles.

I prefer to see as much realism and historical accuracy as possible, but I know that's expecting a lot from a mass produced toy line. I like to see swastikas on vehicles or accessories, such as on Disney's version of the Ark crate. (Scroll down to see a pic of the crate over on Michael Crawford's (http://www.mwctoys.com/REVIEW_110703b.htm) site). Looked like they did a better job on the crate than the figure it came with!

Over at Jedi Defender, they had a indy question in their hasbro Q&A, look at what hasbro had to say regarding the line:

"**We are glad to hear it, because we are stoked too! While we will be sneak-previewing some figures at Comic Con International in San Diego, we have to keep the details under wraps for now. We can divulge that there are some very familiar scales, as well as a few surprises in the line. Suffice to say that we have top men working on it. The same top men that have been bringing you the Star Wars line, so there should be a lot of consistency in approach."

Sounds like 3 3/4' scale... FANTASTIC!!!! Also, the consistency in approach and few surprises comments might sound like we are getting original trilogy figures as well, plus how would they have some figures of the new movie already sculpted when production just started two weeks ago?

Beast
07-06-2007, 07:34 PM
Well, putting together a Indy IV figure in time for Comic Con probably wasn't hard. Since all they would have had to do was just sculpt an older version of Harrison's head on the traditional Indy costume. And since Hasbro was involved with Transformers, they may have had access to Shia LaBeouf. Or maybe they're just going to preview the classic stuff. ;)

Yeah, I really like what I'm seeing. There was a comment in the SDCC reaction thread about Indy not having knee joints. I would worry, if that was the only Indy we were likely to get. Hell, we'll probably get a SA one with a horse even. Only real complaint I have is with Adventure Heroes line. More specifically the Mummy and Cobra with Sallah and the Arc Ghost with Belloq. I hope they decide to switch that up a bit, so those of us who want multiple Mummies, Cobras, and Ghosts don't need to buy a bunch of useless Sallahs and Belloqs as well. They should pack the ghosts with generic Nazis instead. :p

Disappointed that this Indy doesn't have knee-joints. I definitely want an SA Indy with and without the leather jacket. I don't want to see Toy Biz articulation, but enough where the figure could go from a neutral pose to an action one.

I just rewatched the first movie this afternoon, and I'm surprised at how none of the German troops or officers feature swastikas on their uniforms. They don't have the arm bands, for example. The only place that the symbol is prominant is on flags, the flying wing, and on the side of the Arc crate. Not to mention the Arc crate that came with the German Soldier in the Disney line a few years ago had the symbol on the side of the box. So maybe they will be able to do troopers without having too much retail resistance.

I hope so. I'd like to see interchangable heads myself, especially for Toht.

Just trick Toht out with a regular and melting face. And don't forget interchangable hands. Gloved, Normal, and a 3rd right hand for the Headpiece burn. He also has to come with the collapsable coathanger. Of course, that means soft goods coat. Maybe they should do two Tohts instead. Not a huge fan of soft goods on small figures. :D

But the line looked great and I definitely want to spend my money NOW! :D They were talking about the line in the booth when it was real busy, I chimed in "playsets!!!" and got a funny look.

These figures look cool, and the first three Indy movies were awesome. But everything I see about the fourth one makes me wary. And I've been cutting back on lines to save space and money. This'll be a decidedly easy pass.

I wasn't entirely sure, maybe I was saying something they were sick of hearing, or maybe I was saying something they were already thinking but couldn't say anything about. That's the problem with these sorts of things, the informality of the exchanges does no good for subtleties. Hopefully they are going to do a few key playsets though, even over SW I think Indy deserves playsets.

I think they said we were to see the figures next May. :ermm:

Nothing I can remember about TOD.

I'm pretty sure the line will include figures from each movie (the orignal press release indicated as much.) I wouldn't be shocked if they dipped into the comic-packs concept on this line too; Dark Horse and Marvel produced enough books to inspire some cool characters, plus DH will have a new ongoing series after or around the time the new movie comes out. AND there's some video games characters they could put out. Toy Fair 2008 should be the big revelation as to the scope of the line.

What kind of accessories or playsets could we expect if any?
I'm hoping they at least do an Ark playset. Even if it's a retooled one.

If it's like Star Wars, we'll probably see all the old stuff retooled and re-released.

I'm hoping that Hasbro will consider vehicles as well. I'd love the flying Wing.

And the Motorycle and Sidecar from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. :D

I'm liking the idea of playsets. That Flying Wing would be cool, with a German Mr. Muscles
I already have a 1:18 die-cast black 1938 Mercedes 770K staff car. The excact model used in the Ark chase. It's made by Signature. Cost me $50.
Though the little flags on the fenders are just red without swastikas. It is nice. I know where to get the Nazi officers in a 12 soldier set, but I can't quite bring myself to buy them for obvious reasons.

Nobody to my knowledge has made the Afrika Corp Opel truck used to carry the Ark in the 1:18 (3 3/4) scale yet. Though Ultimate Soldier did do a 1:32 one last year. I'm hoping they come up with one. They've been prolific at making cool German stuff. Heck, the newest wave of 1:18 soldiers by them are at least four or five different Afrika Corp soldiers in Khaki like the first movie that could be used.

All I need is that truck. It would be cool to put Indy hanging on to the grill, or dragging behind it with his whip.

This would be an easy update for them, assuming they have all the old Kenner molds. Update the colors and perhaps give it a snap down, soft goods canopy, throw in a driver and an Ark accessory and done.

The concept was cool though. I don't remember seeing it in the stores. I like the horse and the whole playset idea. Guess that might have been the brief segment in my life I was not interested in or collected toys.
Come to find out that the truck just like the flying wing (which I knew wasn't a real aircraft from the beginning) were mock-ups of German machines. That even though there were German WWII trucks and aircraft (though very few) available, Lucas and Spielberg chose to make their own versions of these. That these actually did not exist outside this movie. Perhaps they didn't want to damage such rare machinery. It's all good. I mean who knows the difference?
Hardcore military hardware buffs I guess.
Other than nostalgia for the old toys, I think kids/ toy collectors demand more detail and realism from toymakers than we used to.

I remember seeing the Kenner truck in stores and wanted it badly back then. But I wouldn't mind if Hasbro didn't bother to re-release it.

I keep hoping that 21st Century Toys (ultimate soldier) will do a 1:18 (4" figure scale) German truck like their 1:32 model that came out last year. I've seen the 1:18 German halftrack at TRU this past week, but that's as close as they've come to general purpose vehicles recently.

Blue2th
08-07-2007, 07:58 PM
Yes, I'd like to see a 1:18 German truck other than that halftrack. Talk about repaints. For every battle and camo sceme. Guess we shouldn't gripe about how many SW vehicle repaints we get.

It's cool that TRU is carrying 21'st Century again (just recently) I can't wait till they offer exclusives as they always do. (remember the huge Patton jeep?) It's good to find them at other places besides Wally World again.

There's this cool website I didn't bookmark (doh) that has all this cool trivia about Indiana Jones movies. Like I read they used the sub from Das Boot. Things like that.

I've had a lot of trouble getting SW figures into 1:18 vehicles in the past from the Ultimate Soldier line, but they're focusing more on their figure line now which may make a difference. I've struggled getting even the pilots to sit in the cockpits of 21st Century Toy's 1:18 aircraft, and those figures are included with the plane. I don't have any experience with the tanks. 21st's 1:18 figure articulation is a bit of a cross between Hasbro's SW and RAH GI JOE, though their figures don't have quite the range of movement and flexibility of the JOEs.

JediTricks
08-09-2007, 03:56 PM
That's the problem with designing to that level of accuracy, it's not particularly easy for a human to slip into some of these pilot chairs to begin with, and humans are flexible - action figures are anything but. I'd love to see them design a cockpit that can come apart just enough to get the figure in and out without a huge struggle or fear of breakage, but I don't want to see Hasbro-level of cockpit simplicity either, there's gotta be a happy medium.

With Indy, I think the truck should be cake because they ARE fairly easy to get into, but other vehicles like the flying wing and the Last Crusade tank and biplane are a totally different matter. (Not that I'm getting ahead of myself on that stuff :p)

Blue2th

Hasbro could learn something from 21st Century Toys. Size matters not to them. Whatever it takes to be fairly accurate to scale and a heck of a lot more detail. Though some of the Star Wars or Indiana Jones toys would be impossible to do to scale, at least they could try making them bigger like those huge 1:18 Airplanes. They always seem to sell out quick.

Ultimate Soldier (21st Century) is working on a 1:18 B-25 Mitchell twin engine bomber. I would assume with figures (4 or 5 man crew) That's the one used in the Doolittle Raid at the end of the movie"Pearl Harbor" That's gonna be huge! That's at least as big as the flying wing. Which is also a twin engine plane.

I'm pretty excited to get a Sean Connery Henry Jones figure myself.

When is Toy Fair 2008? February? They will reveal a ton there (I bet) and then we'll know exactly how much we'll need to sock away. The May rollout makes sense so they can build awareness with kids and get some steam behind the line. I don't know how well the line will do with kids, honestly. I wonder if Lucasfilm has considered a re-release of the original three into theaters (ROTLA in Feb., IJATTOD in Mar., IJATLC in Apr.?) building up to episode IV?

There's a Q&A regarding Playsets and such for the Indy Line from Yakface.

Yakface.com: Now that the Indiana Jones figures have been confirmed and a few revealed at Comic-Con (which look great by the way, I'm extremely excited). Will you be accepting any questions about this line in future Q&A sessions as well?

I know it's the Star Wars Q&A, but SW and Indy have always gone hand- in-hand down through the years, and since they're being worked on by the same team, I'm hoping you'd be willing to field a few questions about this exciting new line.

IF so, let me attempt to be the first by asking whether or not the "vintage" playsets will get an update (Well of the Souls, Streets of Cairo, Map Room) as well as vehicles (German army truck w/ Ark crate). The flying wing with shredible German Mechanic would also be a cool new addition.

Finally, IF the playsets and vehicles get an update, will they utilize the molds from the vintage toys like many of the current Star Wars vehicles or would they be all new sculpts?

Hasbro: Yes, Indy questions can be sent to the same address here, and since it's the same team bringing you the IJ excitement, we can answer. The answer to playsets is about the same as you might expect from Star Wars - It's a been a struggle so we are adopting a wait and see attitude on them and seeing where our figure/vehicle demand nets out first before going too far in the playset direction. The cargo truck is a definite probability for 3-3/4", but the wing is tough because it really is a big one. One thing that is known is that NONE of the original Indy tools exist anymore, so we will not be going back to the vintage tools.

That's DEFINITELY a good thing. I think we all agreed a few weeks back that the Vintage truck was, uh, outdated, to put it nicely. A whole new design will be great. I'll bet they will focus on smaller vehicles like the truck, the motorcycle and (hope hope) the tank from Last Crusade, and maybe a beast assortment with some horses, a camel and a elephant (Temple of Doom battlepack anyone?) And snakes, ghosts and mummies, please. They could also make the Venice boats from Crusade, and a German jeep from Raiders. I'll have to watch these again to get some ideas.

I just love the idea that Hasbro's Top Men are sitting around going through the movies, pouring over stills and studying props to cook up a full line of 3 & 3/4" figures right now. That rules. Toy Fair can't come soon enough.

Yep. And I'm actually glad the tooling went missing. I want to see new more accurate vehicles in the line. Hopefully if they can't do playsets, maybe they can do a Deluxe Figure series that can come with larger items. Like Indy with Ark, ToD Indy with Raft, etc. Someone needs to ask in the next round of questions about how they're planning on making Nazi soldiers, etc. Since I know that's going to be somewhat problematic for a mass market retail toyline. I'm pretty sure we won't see a Last Crusade Hitler.

That's too bad that playsets are in the "wait and see" category. Even if it was just one playset per movie, I think they would do well. Well of Souls for Raiders. Temple of Doom for Temple of Doom. Grail Cavern for Last Crusade. Include an exclusive figure with each playset (Marion in white dress, Temple of Doom Willie, Grail Knight), although I am sure people would complain about that. The Map Room from Raiders could be small enough to be a deluxe set with Desert Indy figure similar to the vintage version.

JediTricks
08-21-2007, 06:52 PM
If they were to do playsets from the movies, maybe do something like the Well of Souls with one wall being the Map Room.

TOD should have the Kali altar and on the other side part of the mines.

LC is a little trickier as each setting was a little more isolated and gimmicky than in the other films. The closest I can think of is the Castle Brunwald with the fireplace and secret staircase, but that's still not very much to actually do. Of course, the resting place of the Holy Grail has the most to do but it seems way too many little gimmicks and not enough overall interest.

The playsets I can understand the "wait and see" approach (this is Hasbro remember) Though I think they would get alot of crossover apeal if they did that WWI Tank from Last Crusade. The Ultimate Soldier collectors would definitely buy it (if they did it half-way right) as well as the Indy fans. Same goes for the Biplane in the Zeppelin escape. And the Raiders Duece and a half. It's already been proven these military type vehicles sell good.
Of course they could just re-use the same horse scuplt after they do the Raiders truck/playset again for the LC tank chase just a different color. Throw in a camel maybe?

JediTricks
08-23-2007, 12:47 AM
I think the tank in LC gets enough play that it should be made, it's not as big as the Flying Wing and it has more characters interacting with it and it's cool in general. Stuff like the biplane would be nice too, but it's not at the top of my list because it just didn't do as much in the film, and it's not all that unique a vehicle.

Sounds good. No swastika is fine, since none of them wore one in Raiders. Even though it was prominant on the Flying Wing and on the Ark Crate. :p

He HAS to be, no? My guess is they are going to reveal a ton at Toy Fair 2008, and I wouldn't be surprised if they followed the 1st Wave with Temple of Doom and Last Crusade waves, followed by a Crystal Skull wave. They said 30 figs planned for 2008...so that's roughly 5 waves of 6. If they do well enough, I wouldn't be shocked if they tack an extra wave, some comic packs and perhaps some vehicle pack-ins into the mix. Maybe even a mail-away figure? I think it's safe to assume they will be using the Star Wars/GI Joe sales model.

- Indiana Jones (Map Room Outfit)
- Sallah
- Monkeyman w/ Monkey
- Colonel Dietrich
- Arnold Toht (Interchangable Hands)

They look really good. I still don't like the wide stance of 'Streets of Cairo' Indy however. And the fact that he doesn't have knees. But since I doubt he's the only 'No Jacket' Indy figure we'll ever get, it doesn't bug me as much. The other Indy is perfect. The German Soldier looks great also. Hello Army Builder. Heh. :D

I definitely remember the 'Bro saying in a panel or Q&A that they were working in some "exciting and/or surprising action features". If I were a kid, I gotta say that I would definitely want an Indy who could snap his whip.

Oh, and more good news on the line from Jedi Defender:

3. You mentioned in a previous Q&A session that there will be 30 figures in the Indy line next year. Are Indy figures in 2009 a certainty or is it more of a "wait and see" type of thing and see how 2008 goes first? We're just curious if this is going to be a toy line with legs under it like Star Wars has been, or if it will be much more subdued in character choices/variety.

**We are actively planning and producing for a multi-year run. IJ is something we are committed to and hopefully fans are excited about it as we are.

I actually think someone needs to ask them about the 'Swastika Issue' more than anything. Especially if they're going to do vehicles like the Flying Wing in the line. Or German Officers. The Ark Crate from the Disney line of had it on the side of it.

I'm excited about this line, swastikas or no. Would be nice to see Nazi insignia on the accessories or vehicles, but even companies that make historically accurate military toys shy away from putting swastikas on their product.

I'm considering buying a set of IJ figures to keep carded, something I used to do with SW up until pOTC & ROTS. I wonder what Hasbro's MSRP on basic figures will be - about the same or higher than SW? I'm anticipating higher prices on everything in '08 due to the toy recalls.

Beast
11-10-2007, 06:27 PM
It wouldn't bug me. While I would like the figures/vehicles to be completely accurate, I can understand why they would shy away from putting the emblem on the toys. I was honestly surprised it was on the Ark Crate sold with the figures at Disney.

Besides, those of us who want the figures to be accurate shouldn't have a big problem making the symbols ourselves. Some red electical tape cut to size, a white paint pen, and then a fine tipped black ink pen. There you go, you have removable armbands for if you decide to take them off. Same can be done for the flags and such from the movie, if you want to create a German Soldier - Standard Bearer.

We already asked about Shorty on ActionFigs, Sept 14th:

In regards to the Indiana Jones line, what types of ideas are being considered? Would it be safe to assume that characters like Mola Ram, the giant Thugee guard, Temple of Doom "wear & tear" Indy with torn shirt and missing sleeve, Henry Jones Sr., Willie Scott, and Short Round are good possibilities? After all, they do all seem like logical choices. Will the Star Wars Battle Pack and Comic 2-Pack concepts be used in the Indiana Jones line? How about Indy role-play accessories?
Right now it is still too early to talk about the breadth and depth of Indy....that will probably come next around Toy Fair. We we will say that we are doing both a mix of classic (previous three films) and figures from the new Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The figures you named are all strong classic figures, so there's a good chance most or all of them will be in the line at some point.
As for the swastikas, the idea of you guys making your own little nazi armbands for your toys is more than a little creepy. :p

Blue2th
11-11-2007, 08:17 AM
Yes even most historically acurate vehicles including the 1:18 German Messershmitts and Fock-Wulf 190 Airplanes and Tiger-Panther tanks etc. from Ultimate Soldier are sold without the swastikas. The way they see it It's just not proper or politically correct to sell them that way, as they will offend someone.

It's kinda weird. When buying the 1:18 P-40 Flying Tiger of the AVG, it came without the country insignia (blue sun in white background) which was China's armed forces insignia during WWII.
China who manufactures these planes won't put it on there because it's now the insignia for Taiwan.
Funny that they have no problem using the Japanese meatball, and the Japs still haven't appologized for the genocide of Chinese people. So it's almost a contradiction in what's politically correct.

All the necessary insignias for 1:18 (which is the size the Indy figs/vehicles) including swastikas can be bought in decal form from places like Badcat.com and Small Joes.

It is a bit creepy. But I hope you understand it's not meant to offend. But more a desire to have accurate figures and vehicles. Not from any desire to glamorize a monstrous group of people and their deeds. I'm just incredibly picky about movie accuracy. Hence why I don't have any problem with the German Soldier. Since they didn't have the armband or insignia on their uniforms in RotLA anyway.

I'll be ordering one anyways cause I missed it when Walmart had them. http://www.badcataviation.com/wcdo112tonwe.html That was tempting, but I'm going to wait and see what Hasbro offers. It probably won't be as good as 21st Century's stuff, but I don't think 21st is going to do a 1:18 version any time soon. Seems like the current trend in military toys is 1:32 scale. Check out 21st's 1:32 three-ton truck (http://www.badcataviation.com/ge3tr121ceto.html) and Forces of Valor's motorcycle with sidecar (http://www.badcataviation.com/ks750zusi1fo.html). I'd love to see both in 1:18 scale.

The 1:18 Ultimate Soldier D-Day assortment, which includes the two German Afrika Korps soldiers, is going out of production. This assortment is being replaced by the Vietnam-era 173rd Brigade, which I've seen at TRU in the past week. I've been building up some German WWII forces before Hasbro releases their more expensive versions in the Indy line.

Blue2th
11-13-2007, 02:40 PM
That 21st Duece and a half was an 1:18 version. I've got the single axle Weapons Carrier, and the Dodge Patton Jeep also.

Sadly I think that alot of the 1:18 military vehicles and Airplanes are being phased out. At least at retail (not enough shelf space) Walmart just blew out most of the left over warplanes they had, and they are not the exclusive retail carrier of 21st century anymore. TRU just picked them up again.

I've got a few of the 1:32 military, and like you said that seems to be the trend.
Being mostly a 1:18 (3 3/4) collector though, I don't see me buying too much more 1:32.
1:18 is such a great scale to mix different brands together. I mean the 21st Century stuff goes good with GI Joes, which I also collect.

Nobody's made a 1:18 motorcycle and side-car though, which would be perfect for Indy and his Dad. Maybe we'll get one from Hasbro.

I didn't know about the phase-out of the 21st Afrika Corps. I think I need to at least get a few of those.

I figure I can swap heads from the American soldiers to give my German army more variety. I knew that TRU is carrying them again, but I didn't know Wal-Mart dropped the line though. According to their website, 21st is releasing 1:18 dualpacks (http://www.21stcenturytoys.com/area21/articles.asp?newsID=275) for army building next year. Maybe they'll repack the Afrika Korps and Wehrmacht soldiers in future 2-packs.

No, you don't have to buy the figure to get the pack-ins. You don't have to buy anything at all, in fact. The figure prices are what they are, and as long as there is a market for these figures, as long as there are people who will buy them, whatever price they are offered for is, for better or worse, the 'fair market price'. That's just basic economics. Pack-ins are not figured into the cost of manufacturing the figures; Hasbro is in fact offering them to us for free with our figures. I can guarantee you that if Hasbro discontinues pack-ins of any type from now on, the figures will continue to be sold at the exact same price.

Disney does not own the Disney store.
At least not any of those in your local mall.
And hasn't for several years.
Sold the license to Child's Play, a children's clothing store.
If you remember back a couple of years, they used to sell watches, lithographs, statues, all sorts of stuff.
The one in Chicago (woodfield) even had a restaurant.
Now, its all kids clothes and stuffed animals.
Sorry, just another example of Disney selling out.
Thats why no Star Wars and no Indiana Jones.
Sorry buddy.

I've seen Pirates of the Caribbean figures at Disney Stores, as well as toys from other Disney movies as recently as the weekend before Thanksgiving, so I know they carry action figures and vehicles. And I've seen Star Tours figures in Disney Stores too, but it's been awhile. While I don't expect to find any of the park exclusives at the stores, I don't rule out the possibility either.

Man, 5 months is a long time to wait. I really wish the Bro would do a Sneak Preview figure through the Star Wars line -- like a chase figure or something in the 2008 TAC Wave 1. Lucasfilm has allowed Indy chases before (Kubricks) so it's not without precedent; that would be a pretty sweet treat -- an Indy in Jacket fig on the TAC card art.

It's a nice looking piece. If it was available online, I'd buy it for sure. I think you can order by phone by calling Disneyland, but it's a minimum order of $50, or something, and the figure is only like $12. There's a whole chain on it HERE (http://raven.theraider.net/showthread.php?t=11933)

If I find myself in SoCal this year, I might pop in and get one (and ride some rides, of course.)

Cool Toy Review posted Hasbro's plans for 2008. So now we know what's up with IJ.

For 2008, fans of Indiana Jones can expect Hasbro to have their backs. At the current time, we can tell you that they have broken down virtually on the product lines in this franchise into two waves. The first waves will, where applicable, focus on the debut film Raiders Of The Lost Ark and the second waves will be based on the characters from the upcoming film, The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull. After that time we’ll see products based on the other Indy stories as well.

Expect to see the first two waves of the following in February at Toy Fair:

3 3/4” Basic Figure Assortment
Series 1: ROTLA
Series 2: TKOTCS

3 ” Deluxe Figure Assortment
Series 1: ROTLA
Series 2: TKOTCS

3 ” Vehicle Assortment
Series 1: ROTLA
Series 2: TKOTCS

Adventure Set
Series 1: ROTLA
Series 2: TKOTCS

Adventure Heroes Assortment
Series 1: ROTLA
Series 2: TKOTCS

12” Action figure Assortment
Series 1: ROTLA
Series 2: TKOTCS

Titanium Series
Series 1: ROTLA
Series 2: TKOTCS

Beyond that, collectors can expect to see Indiana Jones Mighty Muggs, Die Cast Playsets, and of course, no modern day Hasbro collection is complete without our starchy friend, Taders Of The Lost Ark.

Definitely getting the 3-3/4" figures and vehicles. I want the German cargo truck and a motorcycle with detachable sidecar the most.

I doubt I'll pick up the pre-school figurine packs, though that may change after I see them in person. Same with the Titaniums and die-cast playsets. I'm sure we'll get the stuff from the old Galoob IJ MicroMachines (http://www.theraider.net/information/collectibles/micro_machines.php) box set again.

Boy, am I glad to see that Hasbro is doing a 12" line again. Hopefully they put some effort into the line and produce some decent likenesses. Though even the much-venerated Sideshow can't always deliver on that count.

I won't be getting the Mighty Muggs and Potato Heads.

I am fearing Darth Maul syndrome on it. Maul was packed 4 to a case in Ep 1 wave 1 - twice as much as anybody else in the case of 32 figs - and it still wasn't enough by a longshot.

It looks like they're going with the Spider-Man format for the upcoming Indy Heroes line. Given the picture of the loose set reveals that there's 5 different Indys spread out acorss the first 8 sets. From left to right. Other than the ones we've been told come packaged together, your guess is as good as mine.

Indiana Jones (w/ Gun)
Indiana Jones (Map Room Disguise)
Indiana Jones (Basic)
German Mechanic
Havitos
Sallah
Crystal Skull Native
Belloq
Cairo Swordsman
Ghost
Marian
Indiana Jones (No Jacket w/ Whip & Gun)
Mummy
Indiana Jones (w/ Whip & Idol)
Ark of the Covenant

Edit: One of the Indy's is supposedly Old Man Indy and comes with the Crystal Skull Native. But damn if I can tell which one is supposed to be the older Indy. I'm gonna guess it's the Basic version (3rd one over) at the top.

i think the mummy is supposed to be like the skeletons found in the tomb indy and marion escape from (the well of souls?), the one full of snakes.

i think the crystal skull native is the guy with the spear. And i think Beast is right about the Crystal Skull Indy being the one with the jacket and gloves.

Yeah, bert19 is right. Remember when Indy and Marian are escaping from the Well of the Souls, and all of the mummy skeletons are kinda reaching for her. ;)

And Bert, I think the Crystal Skull Native is the one with the stone hatchet. Because the Havitos from RotLA had spears, but I don't recall stone hatchets.

interestingly, no word/sign of german soldiers in this line

Indiana Jones Tickets To Adventure
Posted by Curto on January 10, 2008 at 11:35 AM CST:

We've unlocked the hidden secrets of the Ticket to Adventure mystery! Each toy line from Hasbro will contain an exclusive redemption certificate, good for a free toy!

In the 3" line, you can send away for a Crystal Skeleton Figure with Throne, by collecting 6 different Indiana Jones stickers!

In the Adventure Heroes line, you can send away for Indiana Jones & Horse set, by collecting 6 different Indiana Jones stickers!

In the 12" line, you can send away for a 12"-scale Ark of the Covenant, by collecting 4 different Indiana Jones stickers!

Look for more details on the official Indiana Jones toys when they hit shelves this spring!

So market research indicates playsets will sell for Indiana Jones, but not Star Wars?! Guess I should be happy we're getting any playsets at all from Hasbro anyway. I just feel like they've been lying to us a bit too much recently. I mean, they've even been swearing up and down that Marvel Legends don't contain comics because they're too expensive to include when over in the Star Wars and G.I. Joe lines both we have a pretty extensive line of comic 2-packs that not only showcase the comics, but also come with two figures which are frequently as not completely new sculpts for less than the price of two individual figures. On second thought, don't anybody let that get back to Hasbro or we'll end up paying fifteen bucks for 2-packs without comics...


Yay! Go playsets!!!
