Not bad, not bad.

I'm not sure if those motorcycles are new or not. Can't tell if the convoy truck has a plastic or the usual LEGO "cloth" canvas. I'd like to get a close-up look at those German mini-figs. I wonder how much detail LEGO put into the uniforms.

7623 Temple Escape looks like a massive set. The front box art is a bit dark, but the photo on the side appears to be the entire Peruvian adventure. Or maybe just the cave/temple itself. Seems the poor Satipo fig is having trouble with the spikes. The Hovito has a brown torso and blue legs. Probably has a Lando or NBA head.

I'll have to dig out a monkey mini-fig so I can do the Streets of Cairo :D

The motorcycle isn't new, par say. I'm pretty sure it's made from the same old Chassis (http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=50859) we've see the last three years or so. The Fairing (http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=50860) is new this year. At this point it's only been used in Bane's motorcycle in 7787 (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/7787). As for the convoy truck, I can't tell either. Part of my says yes and other no.

I don't like the whip. Sorry, but I just don't. The Well of Souls (lost tomb my ***) looks pretty good, as does the Temple Escape. I really like the Motorcycle Chase and Stolen Treasure sets. Ok 7622 needs an Ark and other German. But put the two together and dang, you got a chase.

I like the new square crates. is that just a modified brick or a hollow brick or what? these look like ok sets but they seem a little drab colour wise. the whip is too like the minifig monkey tail.

Most of those look alright, but I get the feeling the Temple Escape is another overpriced set without a cohesive "room", just a lot of little separate set elements - they've been doing that too much lately.

Yeah, you're right, it's the Dirt Bike body, I don't like it here, too modern-looking for this set.

I'm not going to look at those links BD, since I'm avoiding any possible movie spoilers from now on.

Has anybody found the new OT sets yet? I've read reports that they're beginning to hit stores in CA and the Midwest. I'm going to get them all and multiples of the Motorcycle Chase right off the bat.

The first 2 have "nothing special" written all over them, though the second is very Johnny Thunder. The 3rd though, that gives me enough pause to seriously worry about the direction this film is taking.

TRU.com has two Indy sets up for sale:

Motorcycle Chase (http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2942738)

Lost Tomb (http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2942739) (Well of Souls)

I've read reports of people finding all four sets at TRUs around the country. I called my TRU last night but they hadn't gotten them in yet. I want these sooo bad. I haven't been this excited about a toy line since the modern SW era began.

I saw the Lost Tomb and Motorcycle Chase at my local TRU yesterday. I was tempted to get the Lost Tomb set but I just wait until Target or Lego store get them in and save a $1, that is assuming that I do decide to get it.

Yeah, I don't know what the deal is with that TRU markup. Some of their set prices are a buck or two over SRP, while others can be $10 or more.

Picked up the Motorcycle Chase, Well of Souls, and Peru Temple Escape at TRU today. Disappointed that they didn't get the desert chase in.

I needed to use a $10-off a $100 purchase coupon before the 24th, so that took some of the bite out of TRU's mark-up. I still ended up paying $2.12 over SRP for them. I guess that's the cost of impatience more than anything. But these are my first Indy toys in 25 years! EDIT => I guess I got the Galoob Indy MicroMachines in '95, so it hasn't been quite that long. Still, twelve years...

The Motorcycle Chase is kinda bland as JT described. Especially the guardhouse, it's just a facade here. Definitely needs to be redone and expanded. The checkpoint lever should've been made of round Technic pins (http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/75535) so Indy could use it to joust with and stick into the soldier's motorcycle tire like in the movie. EDIT => Though now that I think about it, he used a flag pole to joust with, didn't he? And that pole is in there. The mini-figs and their accessories are excellent and I suppose I can tolerate the use of the modern dirt bike parts.

Looks like the R2 & 3PO hieroglyphs in the Well of Souls set that Battle Droid reported about is a sticker that covers two bricks. I like that LEGO included the glyphs though, it's a nice show of continuity from the vintage Kenner line. I'm sure Hasbro will do the same. The Ark is a bit disappointing. I have a few gold bricks, so I may build my own.

No Hovito in the Peru Temple Escape either as seen in the concept box art. Belloq is waiting at the entrance with a revolver and a smirk. Jock's biplane has a sticker that says OB-CPO. Haven't seen the fishing pole accessory in a long time either. This looks like a pretty cool playset compared to the hodge-podge that was Cloud City (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/10123). Although there is still room for improvement here, the set is a good starting point. I love the Idol in this one! LEGO's sculptors did a great job on that piece, it's instantly recognizable.

I was this ll close to getting the Temple Escape until the price checker said $70. Way overpriced. And I wasn't very impressed with the Well of the Souls either. I would like to a Map Room though and the "Three Challenges" thing from Crusade could be interesting.

I would like to a Map Room though and the "Three Challenges" thing from Crusade could be interesting. Might as well wait until Wal-Mart or Target gets them in. The Temple Escape should retail around $60 there. The Map Room would be a an easy thing to build since it would be smaller than mini-fig scale. If you've got a tan baseplate and some small bricks or plates for buildings/temples you're good to go. I think LEGO has made turbans so we could conceivably get some Hatay guards for a Three Challenges set.
They should have included 2 Hovito in the set, how hard is it to do simple minifigs holding spears or something? Probably trying to avoid any controversy over racial stereotyping. The original box art had a dark skinned mini-fig armed with a spear. I have a large collection of natives from the old Islanders (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/?qc=lego/system/pirate/islanders) Pirate subtheme so I'm going to use them as Hovitos. There were also native mini-figs from the Indiana Jones-inspired Adventurers (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/?qc=lego/system/adventurers) theme.

I was thinking we really need a Sallah mini-fig. Has there ever been any Arab mini-fig headgear?

Found the Desert Chase (Race for the Stolen Treasure) at WM today. First time I've seen that set.

Wal-Mart's prices are fairly competitive:
Motorcycle Chase 9.24 (TRU 10.99)
Well of Souls 19.88 (TRU 20.99)
Desert Chase 29.88 (?)
Temple Escape 58.88 (TRU 69.99)

The 7620 Motorcycle Chase seems to be the most popular, both WMs here have sold through what they had on the shelf this past week. Even TRU's 7620 stock had dwindled somewhat. Indiana Jones isn't as popular as the '08 Star Wars sets though - those things fly off the shelf.

The truck in the Desert Chase does have a cloth canvas. I was worried that it might be plastic. I need to build a German staff car for Dietrich, Toht, and Belloq to ride in for the Chase scene to be complete. I plan on using the roadsters that came in the Egyptian Adventurers sets as a starting point for the staff car.

EDIT: So I opened and built the Well of Souls this afternoon... and the Indy mini-fig head was missing! In its stead was another peach-colored one which I think is the Anakin Skywalker head from the '08 Clone Wars Jedi Starfighter.

16491

From left to right: Marion and the "Indy" that was in the Well of Souls box, and the normal Indy I got from the Motorcycle Chase.

So I requested a new Indy head from LEGO Customer Service (their online request system doesn't recognize the Indiana Jones set numbers yet). Anyway, hopefully I'll get a replacement. I'm really glad that LEGO puts part lists and numbers in every instruction booklet now.

Review of Artifact #08-7621: Indiana Jones and the Lost Tomb (Abstract to follow)

Photographs of artifact in situ are in the gallery (http://photos.sirstevesguide.com/showgallery.php?cat=5523&ppuser=).

The Lost Tomb builds a facade of the Well of Souls, altar for the Ark of the Covenant, and twin status of Anubis.

Good to see you again, Dr. Jones
The set contains 2 mini-figures, Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood. The Indy mini-fig is top-notch, especially the tradmark fedora and shoulder satchel. My only complaint about the Indy figure is that I got the wrong head in the box. The head I got belongs to Anakin Skywalker from the new Jedi Starfighter set. Indy's whip is flexible, but its tendency to spring back into a coil once extended really affects its play value. Marion's head features two facial expressions, so she can go from happy to scared depending on the play scenario.

Asps! Very dangerous... you go first
You get ten snakes (five red and five green) to litter the floor of the tomb. The snakes can be loaded into a tray above the Ark altar and then rained down upon the floor by depressing a lever on the back. Each statue of Anubis is rigged so that either one can come crashing down by pulling out a Technic rod at their base. The rear wall has two break-away panels that detach when the statues of Anubis crash through them. A skeleton is chained behind one break-away panel to recreate the scene with Marion and the mummies.

It's like nothing you've ever gone after before...
The Ark of the Covenant is simply constructed with gold-colored bricks forming the cover and clip-bricks representing the eagles. It doesn't do a good job conveying what the Ark looked like in the movie though. After sculpting the fedora and Idol, I'm not sure why LEGO didn't just do a molded Ark piece as well.

I knew they'd hire you Sallah, you're the best decaler in Egypt...
There are fourteen stickers to be applied, including one with R2-D2 and C-3PO. The stickers are actually the same images that LEGO used in 1998's Adventurers Eygptian archaeology theme. This time around though, the images come on decals and are worn to show the passage of time. Four stickers aren't used in the set, at least from what I can tell from the box pics and instructions. I suppose they could be used to decorate the 1x6 beams on the rear wall.

Review of Artifact #08-7622: Race for the Stolen Treasure (Abstract to follow)

Photographs of artifact in situ are in the gallery (http://photos.sirstevesguide.com/showgallery.php?cat=5524).

The Race for the Stolen Treasure builds two military vehicles: a large cargo truck and a smaller truck with a rear-mounted machine gun emplacement.

They want you to get the Ark before the Nazis do, and they’re willing to pay handsomely for it…
The set contains four mini-figures and a white horse with saddle. Indiana Jones has all the tools needed for another adventure: whip, pistol, satchel, and horse to ride off into the sunset. There are three German soldier mini-figs in desert uniforms; and all three figures have different facial expressions. Two of the soldiers have determined expressions; but one has lips while the other does not. The third soldier has a bushy mustache.

…and Herr Gobler, I want plenty of protection this time!
Dietrich gets his convoy protection with a light truck with rear-mounted machine gun emplacement. I’m not an expert on vehicles from this era, but I don’t believe the German army ever used a truck like this one. It actually looks more like a modified Chevy 30cwt pick-up (http://blindkat.hegewisch.net/lrdg/lrdgvehicles.html) that British patrols used for long-range field recon in North Africa. The pick-up has room for a single driver and another figure or two to man the machine gun. The gun uses a black lightsaber hilt for the muzzle, which may be the first time the hilt has been released in this color. This truck also comes with a spare tire, complete with rim, that mounts on the vehicle rear until it’s needed.

Truck? What Truck?
The cargo truck rides high on six oversize tires and has room in the back for a gold "stolen treasure" chest filled with coins and jewels. If you want to transport the Ark, you’ll have to build one yourself or buy 7621 The Lost Tomb (Well of Souls). LEGO probably didn’t want to offer the Ark in both sets, otherwise you could just buy one and not the other. The cargo truck employs the two-seat car piece (http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/30149) first introduced in the 1998 Adventurers Egyptian archaeology theme. This part allows two mini-figures to sit side-by-side in a vehicle. I was glad to see its inclusion, since one of the more memorable parts of the Desert Chase sequence has Indy fighting with the German soldier inside the truck cab. Instead of the old radiator with attached headlights (http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/30147) seen in Adventurers vehicles, the radiator grill in this set is made from a rounded window with screen insert. The fenders are angled clip-on flags that attach to the vehicle chassis, and work quite well in lieu of the fender element (http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/50745) found in recent Town/City vehicles. The canvas cover that fits over the rear of the truck is pre-creased so it can easily be folded to give a more square look to it once in place. The canvas is simply locked down on both sides by hinged flaps. The truck has several mini-fig "hand-holds" to recreate the sequence where Indy is thrown out of the truck over the hood and makes his way underneath to the rear and finally back on board.

I dunno, I’m making this up as I go along…
I absolutely love this set. But then again, I’m a huge Town fan and really dig a well-designed vehicle in mini-fig scale, especially old roadsters, trucks, hot rods, and pre-jet era aircraft. Both vehicles in this set are six-studs wide, just like their modern cousins in Town System. The trucks definitely have a historical look and feel to them and I found them to be both fun and very satisfying builds.

My only complaint about the Indy figure is that I got the wrong head in the box. The head I got belongs to Anakin Skywalker from the new Jedi Starfighter set.That is too funny! I'm sorry, and that totally sucks - let LEGO know and they'll make it good - but that is ridiculous now that I see it in your photo.

Because the Ark is only used in 1 set right now while Indy's whip and hat are in every single set in the series. Still, what they did doesn't really work that well, at the very least they should have done stickers.


So how come this set doesn't get a review final commentary while the Race for the Stolen Treasure does? The latter looks like a set I'd dig too, but the $30 pricetag is keeping me away for now, seems $5 too much. I guess that's the cost of greebling and detail at these levels, but it just doesn't look like a $30 set when all is said and done. That said, the review & photos really sell it well.

Still, it offers a Marion mini-fig in a reasonably priced set.

And the Desert Chase and Well of Souls piece counts are nearly the same but one costs $10 more. It's got to be the mini-figs and specialty pieces that push the cost up.

Though not official Indy product, there were enough similarities between the two that I fell in love with the brick all over again.

Plus, the Idol is too small to translate out of built pieces at all, while the Ark has a little more room for conceptual imagination. And I doubt many folks would pay more for that set.

And the Desert Chase and Well of Souls piece counts are nearly the same but one costs $10 more. It's got to be the mini-figs and specialty pieces that push the cost up. It's only 2 more minifigs, none of them are special versions or anything ultra complex. Well of Souls has a bunch of snakes and tons of crazy colors and stickers while the Desert Chase does not. The only specialty piece I'd say with the chase is the cloth top and those never jacked up the price before.

I love the new crate piece in the motorbike chase set. they need to make one double width though. and in tan. so you can make that huge warehouse the Ark of the Covenant ends up in. they could do one of those stickers with heat activated vanishing ink. then you can have the nazi eagle symbol 'burn' away.
not to mention that a double width crate would actually fi stuff inside like the old crate. but the old crate is too wide or deep. needs to two studs by four by the same height as the new crate.


mmmm.

I don't understand why, since selling out their initial stock back in Jan, my local Lego store has not restocked on the Indy sets. They even had them on display but have since pulled them and it's as if they didn't exist at all. I guess they might be saving it for next month but they've lost out on 3 months worth of sales that way.

tried last night to get the river chase set at Walmart and there computers rang it up as TOY RECALL. I stated that there were dozens of them out on the shevles but the cashier said she can't sell the item because of the recall. I guessing it's because they broke street date on the stock.

i don't understand how on Thrusday I could have bought the set but then on Saturday the set was recalled. maybe a hasbro rep caught them and said the items can't be sold yet ? I have seen many hasbro reps in walmart over the years stockings and rearranging shelves in the stores.

I don't know what sanctions manufacturers can levy against retailers that don't comply with selling product before the official release date. I'm sure it's Lucasfilm Licensing that's compelling Hasbro and LEGO to ensure their retail partners comply though.

I have yet to see the KOCS sets locally. The January set releases seem to be fairly good sellers, especially the Desert Chase and the Temple Escape. LEGO may have intentionally underproduced those sets to prevent market saturation though.

Having read Ji'dai's sale report on some of the KotCS sets at TRU, I was going to buy the River Chase from them but it scanned at 20.99, the regular price so I went to the Lego store instead and got that along with the Jungle Duel.

The Jungle Cutter is tempting but I think I'll just buy Hasbro's version of it.

I don't normally look at the Lego stuff too much, but tonight I saw the Raiders of the Lost Ark set with the golden fertility god statue and all the booby traps.

That is an impressive set! It's possibly very old news to some of you guys around here, but for someone who just saw it for his first time, I find it to be worthwhile to rave about.

They did a great job on this toy. I bought that set when it was first released and found it to be a fun build and a decent playset. I like the fact that LEGO put that little dogleg to the right in the middle of the temple so it's not just a straight run from the entrance to the idol. The set is too expensive at $70, but if you can get it on sale I'd recommend it.

One of the WM's here had the Temple of the Crystal Skull on the shelf today but it wouldn't scan. I asked the stocker about it and after coming back she said they couldn't sell them and then proceeded to pull the sets off the shelf. These street dates are just screwy.

this is the one with the Ark right ? if so the stickers go on the statues that knock down the walls in the back.

then the walls that knock down have the larger stickers as well as the wall behind the ark, and the sticker with R2 & Threepio goes in front of the panel that drops the snakes into the tomb.

picked up the Race for the Stolen Treasure last night and it got me to start rebuilding all of my old sets of lego from the original adveturerers sets, town, Star Wars, Spiderman etc. want to build a huge Lego world with all my sets.

liked the Race set just wished the Cargo Truck was bigger and had more German Soliders. was thinking of picking up a couple more sets of the Jungle Duel (the one with the tent, wanna build a camping set) and the Motorcycle Chase sets and thinking about getting the River Chase Set today.

I was thinking of picking up the Jungle Cutter set from TRU on Saturday but they sold out of it so I got the Hasbro Jungle Cutter instead. Sure that one is cheaper but at the same time, I felt compelled to buy Col. Dovchenko and Russian Soldiers (only found one) so it ends up costing the same.

As long as it isn't really expensive i'll most likely buy it for the sake of having something different at my airport/airfield. Change the yellow for a darker colour perhaps. sort out the ugly looking wings.

just checked and TRU UK have it for 40. so do your conversions and feel your jaw drop. pricey little number.

Pounds to US dollars is like 2:1, so it would be about $80. 600-piece sets should run about $60 (10 cents a piece); plus the six mini-figs push up the price too. With TRU's markup on their exclusive sets, then it probably would be $70-80.

Picked up the '09 Indiana Jones sets at TRU today. First impressions:

7682 Shanghai Chase ($39.99) - Expensive set for 244 pieces (the Desert Chase set had 272 pieces and was $30). Shanghai Chase does come with 5 mini-figures - all new and unique - so that must be the reason behind the pricing. You get Tuxedo Indy, Short Round, Willie Scott (with a new hair element with separate tiara), and two gangsters. The gangsters have an Asian look to them and have black fedoras. In earlier prototype shots, one of the gangsters looked like Toht, but that likeness is gone now. The way this line is selling, I'm sure we'll see a Toht mini-fig eventually anyway. I was also hoping for tommy guns, but there are only pistols. I'll have to raid my Batman sets for tommy guns. I haven't built it yet, but the vehicles look pretty neat. The roadster looks pretty cool, though it's only a two-seater. Remove a brick covering the boot to reveal a rumble seat in the back though. The black Model A(?) reminds me of a hearse.

7683 Fight on the Flying Wing ($49.99) - this one has got 376 peices and four mini-figs. You've already met Indy, Marion, and the German pilot if you own the sets that came out in '08. I think the German mechanic head was originally used for J. Jonah Jameson in the Spidey theme. The fig has a bare-chested torso with pre-printed pecs and abs. I haven't built this one either but I can see right off that there's a lot of large single-use elements in it - the wings and canopies primarily. The fuel truck is okay, it gets the job done. I think the tank itself is a little undersized and the truck looks a little odd without wheel hubs or fenders. This set needs a cargo truck/troop carrier and guard tower to make it complete.

Tycho
12-20-2008, 07:30 PM
It's really cool that Lego makes all these Indy scenes. If I really feel the need for it, I'll delve into all the scenes they could do for the movies and see if they've covered them. It sure seems like they will though.

A cargo plane with life raft escape from Temple of Doom might be interesting.

There are a lot of possibilities. Do they make the Thugee worship temple playset? Recreating human sacrafices with Legos sounds like great fun!

I liked Temple of Doom more than most here I guess.

A rope bridge playset with crocodiles would be cool, as well as the mine car chase. And Short Round figures in any Indy line are awesome.

Lego elephants that the figures could ride on would also be so cool. They could use Lego zoo animal figures to add in all the campsite visitors that spook Willie Scott, too.

Ji'dai
12-21-2008, 01:12 PM
LEGO sets tend to focus on vehicles/transportation so a Ford Trimotor with life-raft escape would be more likely than a Club Obi-Wan playset. I'd love to have a LEGO Ford Trimotor, whether it was based on the one from TOD or not! I love classic aircraft. And LEGO has already made the yellow life raft; I think it's still in production.

We've gotten elephants before too. There were two sets released in 2003 that had elephants, coincidentally from an Indiana Jones-type line called Adventurers. These sets featured archaeological expeditions to India, ironically (see 7414 Elephant Caravan (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/7414) and 7418 Scorpion Palace (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/7418)).

The following sets are rumored for next year:
7195 Ambush In Cairo (Raiders)
7196 Cemetery Battle (Crystal Skull)
7197 Venice Canal Chase (Last Crusade)
7198 Fighter Plane Attack (Last Crusade)
7199 The Temple Of Doom

LEGO Shop@Home has an Indy mini-fig magnet (http://shop.lego.com/Product/?p=852504) set on their site. These new magnet sets are different than previous releases. Instead of magnetic torsos, the mini-figs are just regular versions that come with a magnetic basic brick.

I'd personally prefer the figs be magnetic rather than just regular versions - at least with magnetic torsos you're getting something special for the price. But with these sets you're just getting a magnet brick - kinda boring.

The Peril in Peru sold out from LEGO Shop@Home after Thanksgiving and I haven't seen it at TRU in a few weeks. Still, LEGO did go back and produce more of the Hoth Rebel Base so maybe this one will make a return too.

I saw the Flying Wing at WM today but it wouldn't scan. Shanghai Chase is listed on Target's website (http://www.target.com/gp/search/175-8487229-0965668?ie=UTF8&search-alias=target&index=target&field-browse=1038576&ref=sr%5Fbx%5F1%5F1&viewID=drill-down&store=&field-keywords=shanghai%20chase&page=1) for $10 less than TRU's price, so I'd wait and get it there.

I didn't notice the new bike, it's supposed to be Mutt's Harley, and it fails miserably, I think it's a snap-on facade like the police bikes from a few years ago.

I'm not surprised they didn't go all Nazi on the biplane, wouldn't be allowed to be sold in Europe and it wouldn't really suit kids buying a hero toy. They got the iron cross on there, so it's something.

Your right. I didn't think Lego wanted to do any Temple of Doom set in the first place. Now we're getting the mine car chase plus maybe the skull shrine. It looks like Indy (and maybe Shorty) is holding a Shankara Stone. I really don't believe it will be battery powered. The mine cars are too small for a train motor. And there no wires for the micro motor, the only one small enough to fit those cars. I don't Lego makes the micro motor any more, so it's mute point.

Oh man, those are just so freakin' awesome. Streets of Cairo Marion!

Shorty looks like he's having fun on that mine car chase. Willie's outfit looks good too. These figs should have printing on the back of the torso like in the sets just released.

Think that mine cart track is new? It's too narrow gauge for regular System trains. Looks cool though, seeing this set reminds of sending cars down Hot Wheel track as a kid.

The Thuggees look great and I really dig Mola Ram's headgear. I'm sure Castle builders could use it for Celts or pagans. Good to see turbans again, though it will be too expensive to army build these guys. The Cruciform Sword dudes have the fez, but that set will probably be $20-30 I bet.

Mutt's motorcycle looks more like a scooter in that full page spread.

Jargo
01-29-2009, 04:44 PM
looking again in the full page pic the motorcycle is competely missing the faring. No wonder it looks wrong.

The mine track does look new. It has more of a girder look to it than a regular railway track. there again it does have that preliminary image watermark stuck on all the pics so who knows how the track will end up looking. The launch is seven months away.

Mmm, it's hard to tell. It looks like the ties are 2x6. Standard Lego track has ties that are 2x8. But the rails looks the same. Can you alter the gauge of current track? I've never own any trains so I don't have a clue. I will say the gauge is the basically the same as the Dwarves' Mine (http://guide.lugnet.com/set/7036) track.

From the photos one the boxes (the ones I looked at first) all I could see were skulls. But another link it was much clearer. The head gear for these sets has me totally psyched.

Based on piece counts from the boxes I'd say give these as the prices.
7195: $10

7197: $40-$50

Every picture I find of that cemetary battle set the motorbike is different. I'm loving all the minifigs though.Because 2 out of 3 of the designs we've seen are simple stand-ins. One is the motorcycle base, the other is the standard dirtbike. Only that 3rd one which I believe you linked to, the one with the saddlebags made from simple 1x2s with handles, is emulating the Harley.


Mutt's motorcycle looks more like a scooter in that full page spread.That's the kind of LEGO motorcycle base that requires a snap-on facade to complete it, and it looks like they didn't include that in the pic, perhaps because the licensor hadn't approved their design yet, or the prototype wasn't finished.

However, the Indy track seems to have a deeper design, even though the cart wheel flanges are the same. I feel like we've actually seen that Indy track design before in the last few years, but I can't pinpoint what set that would be, my brain won't bring it up.

Those Lego sets look cool. I like the motorcycle from KOTCS, too.

The Venice boat chase set was nice as well.

That mining car chase "roller coaster" from TOD impresses!

I wasn't expecting the "action features" that LEGO incorporated into the Venice motorboats. They have break-away sections and exploding rear panels.

All Indy sets are must-haves for me. I'll get them all as soon as they're available.

I found four of the five new Indy sets at TRU today! Prices are little higher than MSRP, but I've come to expect that in the last couple years.

7195 Ambush in Cairo ($15)
7197 Venice Canal Chase ($45)
7198 Fighter Plane Attack ($50)
7199 The Temple of Doom ($100)

The only one I didn't see was the Chauchilla Cemetery.
