The list is cool, but the grail knight wasn't as high on my list...  Would've rather gotten Sallah with Fez, or one of the grail protectors from Italy.  I'm wondering what Temple will bring, other than the big Thuggee.

Young Indy is going to need something to go with him...  He's kind of a stand-alone now.

Does that guy even have a name?  He's about the only part of TLC that I don't like...he just looks way to 1989...it's almost like making a movie wth your friends, and they really want to be in the movie, but they won't cut their hair.

I was reading on the IndyWiki page today that originally he was supposed to be Abner Ravenwood...also...

Abner is supposed to be in the Crystal Skull...perhaps he'll reference Indy stealing the Cross of Coranado from him :)

...I think Abner is the "Cemetery Warrior" from TCS line.  John Hurt plays an old man in the film, and he looks like he's been out in the jungle living with that natives.

Vogel

I would bet that Vogel comes in the blue/light grey uniform from the scene with the tank in the desert.  Since it appears that Toht isn't on the Raiders list, it seems like Hasbro *might* be trying to steer clear of the characters and likenesses that might be deemed controversial. 

At the McFarlane booth where they were showing off their new WWII figures they made a point of referring to the Germans as GERMANS and nothing else.  Even though they were only showing a couple of American soldiers.

If they're trying to steer away from Toht because they fear he might be too controversial... I just lost a lot of interest in this line.  I doubt that's the case though.  He's in the movie and has a big role.  They should make him (and with an interchangeable right hand that has the medallion burn mark).

I agree, Toht MUST be done. Melted and unmelted versions.
