Worried about Marion(s)...
« on: June 10, 2008, 12:43 AM »
From ActionFigs.com:

From the Indy line, any plans for more Marion Ravenwood figures such as Marion in white dress, Marion from the bar scene, and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Marion? It'd be a good chance to work on the character's likeness, which the current figure doesn't capture all that well.

Hasbro: We do have plans for another Marion figure - white dress. Like Toht, she was originally to be one of our Vintage wave figures, but when we scrapped the idea both she and Toht became great figures for our first Spring '09 wave. As for other Marions down the road? Quite possibly depending on how the line does long term, but it is our intent to spread the character focus around for 2009 to broadly cover as many characters as we can.


AAHH!!!! I can't imagine never getting a KotCS Marion and I really was hoping we would get the Marion from Nepal as well. Those are really the only Marions there are to be made into figures, but what if (worst case scenario) the line really does wnd in 2009/2010 like a lot of people have been predicting? How would you guys feel about never seeing these other two Marions? :'(

I think I'd be a little disappointed if we didn't get a Nepal Marion but other than that I'm not overly worried about it.

Meh, not a big deal.  I want white dress Marion, anything else is gravy.

White dress is the important one for me. If they get to a KOTCS version, great. If not its cool.

The White Dress Marion figure is CRUCIAL to me, I really want them to update all of the vintage figures.

I really want a Marion from KotCS. I want her just as much as I want Mac and Oxley. So basically just to cover all of the major characters in the movie.

So what are they planning for the next wave of KotCS figures? I find it hard to believe that any wave of 6 - 8 figures for that movie wouldn't include her.

I'd talk all Marion figures they make, and hope they redo the current one by giving her articulated knees.

Personally, I'd like the Nepal outfit over the white dress.  But that's me.  I would reallu like an entire Nepal wave with

Indy (Gloves/Automatic weapon)
Marion (Nepal)
Toht (Poker, and extra scarrred hand)
German Thug (with machine gun)
Nepal Thug (with flames that can be conected top his arm)

I think I'm repeating myslef here...

I wish they would make Nepal Marion along with some of the thugs that Indy and Marion beat up on. 

I think we could get a KOTCS Marion.  I sure hope so at least.  I would be done with Marion then.  Well I guess that is about all she wore in both films but you know what I mean!

David, you forgot to mention Hasbro could also make a "Belloq's Mirror Peep Show" Marion as well. :P

I'm not really worried, I'm sure the Indy line won't die out. Just go look at some of the toy lines out there now... I'm sure we'll get the other Marions soon enough.

If one is desperate, maybe look at some of the various Leia/Padme figures out there for custom parts for Marion...

Ditto.  I think I'll be fine with only one Marion in 2009.  If they do more, bonus; if not, no biggie.

I'm certainly not going to worry about a KotCS Marion.  Honestly I didn't think she was all that important in it.

I'm much more interested in white dress, which appears on tap for us, and next I'd be interested in Nepal Marion and I must admit, I'll be a bit bummed if we don't get her, as that's about one of the only figure-rich areas of Raiders they've yet to go to I think.  The Nepal thugs, the German thug, Toht, Marion, Indy (who had a .45 in Nepal I believe, not his revolver), etc.

I want Nepla Marion more than White Dress Marion. If there's a fifth movie I'm 100% sure the line will be resurrected.

Yeah! Or even just 'Belloq w/Mirror.' ;D

I forgot about that one. :)
