I'm anxious to get DAK repaints of the bike, and hopefully a sidecar, for the Raiders chase scene.  And of course one with Indy and Dad.

I'd love to see "Indy with Bike" and "Sr. with Sidecar" or something like that in the DXL line...  or maybe a Battle Pack of sorts with a German thrown in too.

A Battle Pack could be awesome... maybe we'll see a couple in the Fall.

Well I have some good news, there is a new DPCI # showing in the system now....   087-06-2069 Indy Battle Packs $19.99
I am REALLY looking forward to finding out what these are going to include!
There could be the motorcycle chase in TLC, maybe the Ark ceremony with an Ark ghost or better yet, the rope bridge scene from TOD with battle worn indy and temple guards!
If these are anywhere as nice as the star wars battle packs, we are in for a treat!

Hmmm...Battle Packs, to me, are full of retreads and  are of very little of interest.

It all depends on what's actually in them... if we see a new figure or two, and a couple army builders, then I'm all for it.

Personally here's a couple I'd love to see -

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Idol Chase - Indiana Jones, Beloq, and three Indians chasing Indy

Cairo Chase - Indiana Jones, Marian in basket, German Officer, and two Cairo Arabs


Temple of Doom

Club Obi Wan - Indiana Jones, Willie, Lao Che, his two sons


Last Crusade

Venice Chase - Indiana Jones, Elsa, Marcus Brody, two Grail protectors

Indeed it does and this may put a severe stop to me buying anything at all until we know what's in them.  Hasbro got me a bunch of times with the SW stuff, but with a little warning, I can wait.

Please look at that list Hasbro.  That is something I would be all over in an instant.  Those are great ideas Chewie!

Totally! That Club Obi-Wan battle pack idea is outstanding.

I think unless it's in a battle pack, I can't see us getting figures from scenes like that.

I'm still having a hard time believing that this line will last much beyond the ToD wave.

Now that you guys have started buying them, can anyone do a quick compare between the single carded German and the 2-pack Germans? 

Any differences or are all three figures just repaints of the same sculpt?  Three different heads or just repaints of the same head?

The head of the single german soldier figure is duplicated in the 2-pack but the color of the uniform is different. The second figure in the german soldier 2-pack has a new head.

It's a great figure. The individually carded German Soldier comes with the Shankara (sp?) stone relic and since I'm aiming to send away for three of the mail-away figures, I picked up a couple extra German Soliders so I now have three of the stones, and some extra guys to man my Troop Car and the Truck.

If I get more German Soldiers it will be via the 2-pack though, that is a great buy if you ask me.

Yeah, I don't usually troop build beyound 2 or 3, but I want to fill the troop car, and the back of the truck!

I haven't gone through everything I picked up yesterday, but I was just curious, is there supposed to be a "ticket to adventure" form with the deluxe figures.  I found them in the Adventure Heroes and basic figures, but I didn't happen to see one in the three deluxes I've grabbed so far.  Just wondering - maybe there wasn't a mail in for this line and I'm just forgetting that.
