No Indy?  Interesting.

I think there is supposed to be a rope bridge/torn shirt Indy in this wave... Hasbro confirmed it in a Q&A.

My thoughts on this wave...

Shorty- Looks pretty good. Face looks a bit weird, but it could just be the pic. Hopefully his cap is removable, and I love his torch. This is a definite buy for me.

Willie- Don't stone me for saying this, but Willie was always my favorite Indy girl. I always liked the thought of Indy getting stuck with a completely useless gal on one of his adventures, in contrast to the tough and resourceful Marion. I like the figure, but I hope she comes with some actual accesories, maybe some chilled monkey brains?  ;) Or, better yet, maybe a sacrificial cage. Might be better for the Deluxe line, but hey, if Hasbro can pack in a large accesories with the Star Wars line, they can do it with the Indy line. A buy for me.

Thuggee- Always up for some army builders, and this looks like a good one. Buy.

Giant Thuggee- Looks like a good figure, but probably a pass.

Mola Ram- Love that that they included the flaming heart, that's crucial to the character, and it looks great. Nice figure all around, a possible buy for me.

AWESOME!  These loook great!  I really like Willie, and I thought she'd be the stinker of the wave.  2 things though...what's that around Short Rounds neck? And, which Thuggge is that?  Didn't they wear black robes and have uncovered faces?  This line is turning out to be great.

This wave looks great. I've been waiting for Mola Ram since the line started.  :)

Other than Short Round's cartoonish looking face, every figure in this wave is just about perfect.

Another strong wave, TLC & TOD waves seems to be the best ones.

I hope we see this wave. The WM's around here are overflowing with the first two waves. I gree Wave 3 & 4 rock. I am starting to get into this line......great more stuff to buy.
I want to see the battered Indy of this wave, it's one of his most iconic looks.

Mola Ram looks STUNNING.  Love it.  I'm in for the wave for sure!

Like everyone else so far, I think this wave looks pretty great too.  I'm glad we're finally seeing some pics of it.  I'm pretty sure we're supposed to get the torn shirt Indy in this wave as well (mentioned earlier), and that would bring the total figures for the year to 29, which I think was on Hasbro's Indy presentation.  The initial launch of 17, then two waves of six to round out the year.

Overall, the wave looks really nicely done though, and I'm looking forward to picking them up.  Although ToD is not my favorite of the Indy movies, I still enjoy it, and have a lot of fond memories watching it with my dad when I was a kid.  I think it was one of the first ones we had on tape at our house (taped off cable I think), so we got a chance to watch it quite a bit.  Anyways, nice lineup, and I'm wondering if this wave will end up wrapping up the year on Indy figs.  That was the original plan, but with the TLC wave starting to show up now that just leaves this wave for the rest of the year, which is possible I guess.

Any idea as to what the pack in pieces will be with each figure?

These are the six that are left-over from Hasbro's original list of 29 relics for 2008, so it's likely these are the 6 relics for the ToD wave...

 - Anubis Statue [?]
 - Aztec Sun Dial [?]
 - Easter Island Head [?]
 - Temple of Doom Medallion [?]
 - Chinese Lion [?]
 - Spartan Helmet [?]

Like all of you I agree this wave looks awsume.    I love the Flaming Heart I think that is the best piece yet.   I can't wait for this wave

I keep looking at this wave and wonder what great customs Chewie is going to come up with.

So the sixth relic would be with the ToD Indy figure that's not yet pictured? 

And I also agree, this is a great wave. :)

Very nice looking wave. But considering my main focus is SW and my collecting budget will be held back as it is,(due to university) I may only get short round
School has been on strike all month. so much for the summer job I was hoping to get D:

They look great,  For Willie I would have prefer they did her in her Red Evening Dress in the beginning of the film at Club Obi Wan. Mola Ram is the one I am looking for the most, I can't believe they will sell Short Round by himself.
