Wow!  These look great.  Oddly, Henry Jones is the weakest of the bunch.  His clothes look too monotone.

That River Pheonix face is amazing.

Why no Crystal Skull stuff on the HTS site?

I'm fine with the blank armband.  I thought it was actually a smart choice, as opposed to no arm band, or not making him at all.  He's a real cool figure.  I'm going to get the rest of the figures from stores, but I wonder if this wave will be worth ordering.  Second waves/shipments during movie years can be really tough to find, especially if the first 17 sell slowly...

Man with all the new and amazing SW product coming out and the very high projected costs i am putting toward it, it  just pisses me off when i see hasbro throw together great figures in the Indy line. I keep telling myself i cant afford to collect two lines but these figures are just too cool!

But i think i will only get Henry, the Knight, and maybe the girl. Im just hoping WM sells these figures at $5 like they did when the Pirates and spiderman toys came out for their movies. if they are indeed $10 i might only pick up a couple Indy's, his dad, his GF from each movie and maybe a German soldeir or two.

No Bush bucks for jangotat, he's a Canuck.  And he's dreaming if he thinks Hasbro product will be sold at $5 a pop.  Those are guaranteed $9.97 retail in Canada, just like the SW stuff.

Hey spiderman is Hasbro and that went to $5 a pop, you never know what can happen, and it never hurts to hope for it.

There's supposed to be a Last Crusade Indy included with this wave. . .

A pretty great wave of figures...  Elsa is outstanding looking, and I agree on the Young Indy River Phoenix likeness.  I don't think Dr. Jones looks bad at all though so I don't agree there.  I feel he's quite decent, and ultimately the deco can change easier than the sculpt...

I'm glad to see a higher-ranking German baddie mixed in now.  It gives me hope for a Col. Dietrich for the RotLA figures since he's never had one.  I'm pretty happy overall with these though.  Indy is oddly absent though...  I was looking forward to maybe a slightly older Indy with a necktie to mix things up a bit.

These look a lot better than the first two waves, I have to admit.

Nice surprise to get pics of this wave via HTS.  Like others have said, these look to be some of the best figures yet.  I'm sure there will be differences from these press photos to the final product, but looking at those now, the likenesses are pretty well done (Young Indy in particular).  I think I'll be picking up this whole wave the way it looks.  It seems like HTS doesn't have anything from KOTCS up yet, I suppose for "spoilers" or some reason.
