  1. Oh....my....GOD THAAAANK YOU HASBRO!!!!! Sweet GEEZUS thank you!!!!!!!!!!! I am so so so friggin' ecstatic Hasbro finally decided to release this wave of Raiders of the Lost Ark. That's my favorite Indiana Jones movie full of such magic excitement and awesome action ANNND arguably two of THE coolest villains Toht and German Mechanic! (too bad we didn't get Belloq in white suit or the other German Commander) They are all ALL beautiful (Sapito does look 'off' but who give a #$## they RELEASED him!) That IS the perfect Indiana Jones action figure they weren't kidding! Thank you Hasbro from the bottom of my heart! YESSSSS!!!!!
  2. I absolutely love this post. I also think it is not only fantastic that you are trying to help out less fortunate kids, but also that your passion for this toy line is apparent. I for one share your exact same sentiments. I can't even being to explain how much I love this action figure line. These movies were so very special to me growing up and have always wanted and dreamt of being able to get some decent toys out of these movies. Hasbro has delivered....but not to the full potential. I agree we can't have wave upon WAVE of figures. I agree kids wouldn't probably want to buy 'Underwater Scuba Gear Jet Pack Indy' or 'Time Travel Missle Gear Sapito'. But there is just a huge list of other figures, vehicles and playsets that should be on the shelves. I myself have literally spent way over a thousand dollars on these figures. Buying multiple of theses figures deluxe figures and vehicles. The Hasbro Q&A is really becoming annoying because yeah....they have literally been saying in not so many words that the line is dead. Which is really depressing. Now over at cooltoyreview.com message boards there is some neat debate of this line and how Hasbro bunked the line with their crappy case assortements...or if it really is dying because no one wants to buy them? I personally would hope it was Hasbros fault and maybe they'll see how passionate fans are and try their best to rectify the problem. .....however like in this thread http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?...3396957#3396925 I think it is all about $$$ in the end. This line was amazing, and don't get me wrong I am extremely happy with what we've gotten...my eyes jumped out of my head and my heart beat so fast the day I walked into Toys R Us at the beginning of May and saw that wonderful display of Indiana Jones action figures, deluxe figures vehicles and accessories. It was a magic moment for me that no one can ever take away from me.
  3. Thats the thing maybe juuuust MAYBE Hasbro will make these....? Or am I just grasping at straws here....
  4. So here is the supposed Donovan body from "The Last Crusade" It is also used for the Cobra Commander SDCC Exclusive this year http://cooltoyreview.com/story/events/Phot...ders_116559.asp (more pics) Sweet sculpt...however I do remember Donovan having knee high combat boots in the film at the end....did he not? MAN I really hope we get a Donovan action figure
  5. Alright....so I've been doing some research and apparently Donovan is (...or was ) going to be released http://cooltoyreview.com/story/front/Hasbr...wers_115506.asp Cool Toy Review: Checking out the SDCC exclusive Cobra Commander for G.I. Joe, the body looks suspiciously like the outfit worn by Donovan at the end of The Last Crusade. Is this in fact a sneak peek at this potential figure? Hasbro: Sharp, sharp observation! Indeed it is, indeed it is. We have negotiated the first three way figure trade in the history of toy lines, loaning Donovan's body to the GI Joe team, who sent the Crystal Ball tooling to Star Wars to become Talon Karrde, and who in turn sent real Stormtroopers to Indy to replace the bumbling German ones. OK, we kid about the last two. Anyway - great catch! And the sidecar from Last Crusade info: http://www.actionfigs.com/index.php?catego..._articleid=1916 ActionFigs.com: This question comes up quite a bit, so here goes. With the Indiana Jones line, will you be making another deluxe German Motorcycle, one that comes with a sidecar and perhaps Henry Jones sr.? Good way to reuse a few molds and get something new and desired into collectors hands, and it looks like the motorcycle we currently have was designed to accommodate a sidecar. Hasbro: We do have plans for a sidecar version in 2009, but Henry Jones will be coming on a basic figure card later this year so we wouldn't include him with the motorcycle. Now what with all the talk/speculation of Hasbro's Indy line not doing so hot (which really blows ) I can't believe both of the articles ran in June, a mear like...month and a half or so and BOOM! We may never get these. Also I didn't hear about this before but now that I have I'm even more depressed....apparently a Flying Wing vehicle from "Raiders" with a price point of about $20 was going to be released... Will someone please tell me all of this is a bad dream and we actually ARE going to be getting all of these figures....I really want a Dietrich and Rene Belloq in white suit as well.
  6. I saw that other interview over at Cooltoyreview as well but decided not to post it here LoL, by that time I was just waaay too depressed...didn't want to depress anyone else in here further I really am kinda sad this line is coming to an end....it really blows to think the Toht and Belloq in White Suit won't be coming out...OHHH or my German Mechanic figure i've wanted for like..ever
  7. So I FINALLY bought (haven't gotten yet though) a Joker, Batman Begins Batman AND Scarecrow figure from eBay all for really decent prices believe it or not! Can't wait to actually get them out of their plastic prisons and play with them!!!! I am lucky too cuz a few months ago my Mom managed to get me a Dark Knight Batman (which is bad ass!) I am wondering, I want a Thug army for my upcoming Joker figure can anyone help out? If I have to pay out the wahzoo I'm not interested, but I'd like to do a fair trade of at least 3 to 4 Goons/Gotham City Thugs if anyone can assist me? I'd really appreciate it Lemme know! P.S.--I realllllly don't care what 'Evidence Mask' comes with the figure OR even if the figure is in the packaged LoL, I end up playing with my figures anyways
  8. Even though Kingdong of the Jizzum Skullcap was the LARGEST kick in the groin of an experience to sit through I'd still buy this 4 pack LoL...which begs me to wonder..why even bother buying DVD's when they eventually just come out with so many different variations...like my bro who bought me the dvd boxset last year, then they come out with ANOTHER different one with added features and then this.....on a side note, how awesome was Raiders of the Lost Ark and Last Crusade though, I mean really?
  9. That's dedication and Chop! Good man I was honestly thinking of doing the same thing but I figured I'd wouldn't even be making even a minor DENT in the situation and end up having like $700 dollars worth of Indiana Jones with Bazookas and Mutt Williams figures Sigh...I really hope they don't cancel this line
  10. K first off, I'm hoping this thread isn't deleted or modified...we are all Indiana Jones figure fans alike in here and we have to share the news as it comes...everyone has a right to know. Each website that devotes time to getting the fans the info they want deserves a pat on the back, toynewsi is definately one of those sites. I stumbled upon a site called Indianajonescollectors.com that had a Q&A session and this was what I found: IndianaJonesCollectors: First a quick follow up to the one of our questions from last session if we can. The question was asked about a Marcus Brody action figure. The response was "It is unlikely we will do a Marcus Brody figure". Did you mean for next year or did you mean ever? And if so, is there a "list" of the characters that won't be made? Hasbro: We can't really say never, as we hope there will be another Indy film, and if it comes to pass there will almost certainly be a Marcus Brody figure. IJC: Can we expect a 3.75" Belloq in white suit and Panama hat or a 3.75" Toht and German Mechanic in 2009? H: We did show images of a couple of these figures at Comic Con, which are planned for early Spring 2009. This is depending on retail support for IJ continuing through Spring 2009, something that we will be evaluating with our retail partners in the coming months. IJC: Weeks ago you confirmed you confirmed that an Ark Ghost was coming in a deluxe set next year. Last Q&A session you changed your answer to no Ark Ghost was planned. Can you please clarify? H: We did have plans for an Ark ghost, but now it is no longer in the plans. IJC: What is the status of the Dietrich figure that was confirmed months ago in a Q&A? He was missing from the new Raiders wave announced at Comic Con. H: He was planned to be in a later wave in 2009, not in the wave that was shown. So there you have it......$#@@!!!! It looks like Hasbro IS pulling the plug on this line slowly but surely :( I guess even if there is a mild support which would warrant another wave or two we still wont be seeing Belloq in white suit ...sucks.
  11. I'm not coming down on your idea at all...but how the HELL would you do a Build a figure with this line? What would you be able to build..the elephant from Temple of Doom? HASBRO QUESTION: Will we ever see a Rene Belloq in white business suit--I think a 2-pack featuring Rene Belloq in white suit and hat with machine gun Vs. Indiana Jones dressed as German Soldier with bazooka would be great. You said Marcus would not likely be a figure that would make it, what about a Colonel Dietrich from Raiders or Grail Warrior with machine gun perhaps from Last Crusade so fans can re-enact the battle scene at the end of TLC. Will there be any playsets other than from KOTCS? I would like a playset that represents the final scene where the Ark of the Covenant is opened up..the island landscape scene would be great with stand up lights and extra melted/burnt/electrocuted/hole in the stomach German Soldiers. Also last but not least even if for some horrible reason there is no demand for this line to continue, is it possible for Hasbro to still continue making them by agreeing to take a loss and pay out of their own pocket in order to help out those of us who do want to keep seeing and buying Indiana Jones action figures?......well....I uhh...I pretty much know the answer to that question so...never mind

  13. Well...that was thoroughly depressing Unless I didn't see it...did Hasbro answer the question about TLC figures or....am I missing something? And NO Marcus figure? That sucks..yeah I got that exact impression that Hasbro will be axing this line....and that's f******g b******t!!!! SOOO crappy to hear (although it's not an official statement I think it's safe to say at this point with the way things are going and how that QandA went :() Yeah...I'm still happy to have gotten the figures I've gotten thus far...and if they don't cancel the line before they release all the stuff they've show I'd be pretty happy. Guess it's not Hasbro's fault if the line gets cancelled...there's prolly a lot of factors...Kingdom of the Crystal skull sucking gigantic floppy horse penis probably didn't help matters either The other figures from previous Trilogy shouldn't have to suffer...but I guess that's the way the cookie crumbles ..sigh....
  14. Ok so wait...I'm confused... Is Lucius and Gordon being considered? And is it Ra's OR Ducard....I really hope its the Liam Neeson character
  15. Heyyy wait a minute I thought the Toht figure had an already included burnt head as an accessory...DAMN YOU HASBRO!!!
