Yeah I'm quite simply relieved at the scale being 3.75"-4" as it should be.  I just now am banking on quality.  SA or no?  I'm hoping SA.

I share your hope Jesse for the SA aspect, but honestly, doing these in this scale at all and not some Unleashed, big or small, scale is such an overwhelming relief.  They're welcome to do those too, but I won't give a tinkers damn about them either way. 

I'm really, truly excited about the possibility of these toys.  There's so much they can do and hopefully do well too.  Even the generally "bad" SW figures in this scale that have come out lately are still ok by me, with due acknowledgement to your peeves. 

The bad news is now I'll probably go and gather up a vintage collection as well :-X

RS has some pics up from Hasbro's presentation of the sneak preview.  The figures look pretty good to me, hopefully we'll get some clearer pics soon.

It's difficult to tell from the one shot, but that 3 3/4" Indy looks pretty damn good.

Can't wait to see the up-close pics from their booth, later today. . .

Thanks for posting those pics from SSG Matt, those are much clearer.  Looking good so far though, can't wait to see closer/clearer pics from the booth, like you mentioned.  The Galactic Hero-esque figures look neat too.

Yeah, they're a riot, aren't they? 

That's possibly the most-adorable Angel of Death toy ever released.

Strange there's no Marion, though. . .

Fear not, they'll milk this line to death as well.  Every figure that gets 3.75" release will show up there too, only slower.  But you knew that.

The only item I'll ever get from this toy line will be a 12" doll of Indiana Jones by Sideshow.  I think they all look great but I got sucked into LOTR and now have a rubbermaid tub full of action figures I will never display again.

What I'm really gonna like about this line is that it should be fairly small, and easy to be a completist with, I'd think.  It's just not as toy-friendly a license as Star Wars is, and it's rather limited in nature.  No helmeted troops, really, not too many characters, and not a lot of costume changes.

I'm anticipating that this will be a fun line to collect--and not as much of a chore, like it's cousin has gotten to be over the years. . .

From GH:



Pre-posed legs, with no knee articulation?  Weak.  Good thing the Indy with jacket has articulated knees.



There's our Adventure Heroes Marion.

I guess the no knee articulation Indy is whip action Indy.
I can't wait to get my hands on this line. It also sucks Marion doesn't have articulated knees. They probably did that so they can do another later. *Glares at  Kashyyyk Trooper*

I'll be happy with the jacket Indy as long as he's SA.  The whip action figure would be a pass.  Marion, Belloq and the rest shown are all a big thumbs up!

I won't collect the full line but most of those shown, from ROTLA, are pretty good.  I can't wait to see what Sideshow does, though!

I think I'm going to have to watch the Indy trilogy this weekend.
