The deluxe Marion looks way better than the action figure!

Man, I was so looking forward to what they could do with the new Ark, but after seeing these pics, I'm a little disappointed.





The sculpt is great, spot-on, perfect, no problems there.  But it looks like the lid and the base are two different shades of gold, which looks a little strange.  They also didn't include the poles to carry the Ark with, but you gotta have the poles, because everybody knows that if you touch the Ark, you'll die.

Maybe we'll see it released again with some minor improvements made, on down the line.

I could've sworn I've seen pics of an Ark with poles somewhere.  ???

I'm more disappointed with the face sculpt than the ark.

It does?

Looks like the same exact sculpt, just with some slight paint and accessory differences (you the monkey instead of the big Staff of Ra medallion relic).

That 12" Ark looks fantastic.  Too bad I don't care about the 12" scale.

The 12 inch Ark had the poles.  Yeah, it's one of the odd cases where the Kenner one is much, much better.

I can't believe that they made two Marions in that outfit.  That 2-pack one is great.  The single carded figure should have been her Napal outfit.

Everything else looks good, but I will be passing on the non-movie stuff.

I love the Indy w/Ark figure and the Cairo thug, which I was really hoping we'd get at some point.  It's going to really suck trying to get extras of him with that Marion though.  I really figured we'd just get a single-piece Marion that was like the one with the Streets of Cairo set, that you put in the basket. 

The Indy's only flaw, to me, is a lack of a removable hood...  I have learned to basically deal with face sculpts not truly representing actors at this point.   :-\  They're all over the place with every Indy they've done it seems.  The Cairo thug looks to share some Swordsman parts?  Still a cool looking figure and I'm glad we're getting him.  We need the Gestapo guys from Cairo now to go with them and the funky-toothed guy she smacks with the pan.

The face sculpts are really disappointing with this line.  It kind of puts me off of them too, which sucks because these are Indy toys and I have been wanting these forever.  Now, Hasbro Han Solo face sculpts kind of range all over the place sometimes, but man.   :-\

What really bothers me Spuffy are the eyes.  It seems the heads aren't too bad, but the paint job on the eyes on some of these is just terrible.

They're probably prototypes too, so at least there may be some hope for straighter eyes on production pieces (or at least some variety to look through).  Sometimes a sculpt isn't as bad as the paintjob, I learned that early on, so maybe there's some hope...

I don't think these Indy headsculpts are worse than Han headsculpts...  So to that end I'm not upset.  Disappointed maybe, but no more than I was to see VTSC Han's goofy pinhead.

I wonder if there's going to be any Crystal Skull Deluxe figures.  I can't believe we're not getting Mutt on his motorcycle... which plays a part in one chase...
