If the line lasts long enough to give us a second wave for each of the four movies, here's what I'd like to see:
Wave 5: Raiders of the Lost Ark
- Indy in German Soldier Disguise
- Marion Ravenwood in White Dress
- German Mechanic
- Belloq in slacks and white shirt from the scenes in Cairo
- Colonel Dietrich
- Captain Katanga
I've chosen this mix for a couple of different reasons. The first five figures help finish off the vintage Kenner line being remade. I think it would be nice to have Colonel Dietrich only because he was the third part of the trio of bad-guys from the film and he was one of the three who opened the Ark. The other two figures just help flesh out some other regular/memorable characters from the film. They could be easily replaced with characters like Marcus Brody, Major Eaton or Jock.
Wave 6: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
- Marion Ravenwood
- Professor Henry "Indiana" Jones (pics have surfaced of Indy riding on the back of Mutt's motorcycle in a suit)
- US Army Soldier
I do think that there will be a second wave of KotCS figures, we'll probably see them on display at SDCC and they will probably be scheduled for release around the time that the fourth Indy movie comes out on DVD. I'm sure I'll have a few more figure ideas after I've seen the movie, but for now, even just based on the teaser trailer & photos, those are four figures I definitely hope they make.
Wave 7: The Last Crusade
- Walter Donovan
- Marcus Brody
- Sallah from Last Crusade
- Indiana Jones - Venice
- Elsa Schneider - Venice
- Panama Hat - Young Indy "Flashback"
- Fedora - Young Indy "Flashback"
I had a hard time fleshing out this wave to have eight figures. I'm really surprised that they didn't put Donovan and Marcus in the third wave - I guess old men in suits aren't that exciting. I chose the last two figures because it would be nice to have some figures to put with the Young Indy figure, but if Hasbro wanted to only do a wave of six figures, those two could be dropped.
Wave 8: Temple of Doom
- Indy in Tuxedo
- Lao Che
- Kao Kan
- Willie Scott in Performance Gown
- Chattar Lal
- Pankot Maharaja Zalin Singh
- Captain Blumburtt
- British Soldier
I really would like to see them make at least four figures from the sequence in Club Obi-Wan. If the Wave 4 Willie Scott figure is her in the red dress from the opening of the movie then the Willie Scott figure should be her in the pants and shirt from Indy's tux since he has a lot of scenes in that outfit. I think a nice deluxe figure would be Willie in the sacrificial gown and cage, so that's why I chose the tux shirt/pants outfit instead. Since for RotLA & LC we have German Soldiers to army build, for KotCS we got Russian Guards and already for ToD we're going to get Temple Thugs, it would be great if we could get a British Soldier army-builder. The Maharaja seems like a no-brainer to me too.
- Life Raft w/Short Round from the Temple of Doom
- Sacrifice Cage w/Willie Scott from the Temple of Doom
- Thugees w/Mine Cart from the Temple of Doom
- Indy on German Motocycle from The Last Crusade
- Henry Jones Sr. in Side-car from The Last Crusade
- Mutt Williams w/Motorcycle (I think I read that this is already coming)
- Flying Wing from RotLA
- Elephant from ToD
- Speed Boat from LC
- Tank from LC (might be tough to squeeze into the $20 line)
That's about all that comes to mind right now. I want to re-watch the movies before I go see the fourth one, so I'm sure I'll have more ideas after those viewings.
