Alright, I figured I'd add more fuel to the Indiana Jones fire. I still have a soft spot for the vintage figures, though. Maybe, I'm more used to them like a well worn leather leather jacket.

This time I picked Marion for a retro review. Check out my thoughts here:

Don't worry Indy fans, I've got a couple of the modern items coming up in the review rotation over the next couple of weeks!

Enjoy!

Mrs. Nerd probably hid your monkey after that provocative shot of Marion. I took some pics of the vintage monkey with the new version:

The vintage monkey is a good sculpt and has a neutral stance so it can sit on any even surface. The new version has a curved bottom so it can perch on a figure's arm or shoulder. The tail is articulated to "lock" the primate into place. He will also sit on a curved surface, such as the giant snake included with the Mutt Williams figure.

Thanks, Ji'dai!

I didn't remember him looking that generic. Maybe Mrs. Nerd vaccumed him up and didn't realize it.

You jumped the gun a bit on me. I'll tease you with a picture:
