Yeah that's whip-action Indy...  There's also an SA Indy shipping, so that's cool.  The whip action is about as toyish you can get with a guy in fedora I think.  This line's got to be a collector-friendly one for survival of any length I'm afraid, but there are 4 films to work with here...  So there's some hope for coolness.  I'm excited by the Sallah and Belloq figures which look outstanding, and the Indy Whip is even so-so.

In general I just am happy they're mimicing Star Wars since I'm pretty happy with how that's going at the moment.

These look great!  I wished someone would have asked when tthey were coming out.  I would assume that the figures from the film will be out about a month before the movie (end of April) so maybe these will be out in Feb or March.  Who knows?

Also, I think that the Desert Convoy truck from the 82 line is a pretty great toy, and would look awesome with a new paintjob, and a German driver.

This could be a very cool line, but I agree that it will be over within 18 months.  Short and sweet.

I reall like the Belloq and Sallah.  The Indy from the slide show presentation looked like it was SA?  It have potential.  I will definately get SA Indy, Marion, Sallah and Belloq.  The Monkey Man was kind of cool to.  Not sure if I'll get that though.

Oh, no.  No, no, no!!  They had to go and make this line excellent so I'll spend money on it, didn't they?!

 ;D  I'm in for that whole set right there, of the action figure line anyway.  I'll pass on the Adventure Heroes though.

I'm still on the edge of my seat waiting for a look at Sideshow's 1:6 scale Indy.

Damn.  I had gotten to a point where I was tapering down what I was collecting outside of Star Wars, and Hasbro springs THIS on us.  Adventure Heroes is an easy pass for me, but the Basic Figures are too cool for school! 

I thought I saw something from Hasbro about vehicles, too.  Who knows what Hasbro is going to pull off there.  The only ones I can think of are...

-German Flying Wing (probably too big)
-Horses from Raiders of the Lost Ark & Last Crusade
-Truck to Cairo
-German Sub (obviously WAY too big)
-Dusenberg in Shanghai from Temple of Doom
-Chinese plane from Temple of Doom
-Life raft from Temple of Doom
-Elephant from Temple of Doom
-Mining cars from Temple of Doom
-Train from Last Crusade (obviously way too big)
-Venice boats from Last Crusade
-Biplane from Last Crusade
-Motorcycle with sidecar from Last Crusade
-Tank from Last Crusade

As for Sideshow and Gentle Giant's offerings?  Cool stuff, but I may be able to pass.

Dr. Jones!

Those 3.75 figures are awesome! Probably only pick up Indy, but they rock nonetheless.

Put me down for all of the Indy stuff!  The 3.75" look awesome and I'll even pick up the "Playskool" figures.  Heck, that 12" Hasbro Indy doesn't look half bad either!  Though I am sure SS will easily top it, I will definitely be picking one up!  2008...best year ever ;D

Now don't get me wrong Hasbro has some good stuff in the works, yet non of it is finding its way out on the shelves. By this time last year we were already on wave 4 or wave 5 and now Hasbro has only been able to dish out 3 waves or in my case 2. With 5 more month left to go Hasbro has a lot to catch up on yet they are already talking about next years stuff. Well what about this years stuff, so what we have seen the prototypes now lets see the actual product. Plus (which is a rant more towards hasbro Canada) we are going to miss the last few waves which makes me think at this rate i will be lucky to see wave 4 or 5, which is just dumb. "Yes but this happens to Canada every year" yeah i have heard that before but the only thing i hear when people say that is that Hasbro is making no attempt to fix it.
