Indiana Jones & SDCC 2008
« on: July 23, 2008, 03:46 PM »
I see a few new things in this preview pic from ComingSoon.net:



- Wal-Mart 3-Packs (probably for the DVD release)
- TRU Repack Vehicles with figures

I really hope that the "Tank with 3 figures" listing in the TRU computer isn't just the Jungle Cutter there...  :-X

If it is the jungle cutter, that would be disappointing. 

Any chance they'll pull all of the Mutt figures off the pegs/shelves and put them in those three packs? 

Is that truck in the bottom newish?  I'm sure it's the same truck, but I don't recall seeing the Arab in the picture on the back of the first box.  Granted I don't own it, but it strikes me as different.

Maybe the canvas top truck?  For the sequence where Indy thinks Marion's dead from the blown up truck?

Like JJ said, it's the back of the box for the v2 Cargo Truck with canvas top. 

If you follow the linky, there is a much larger high-res pic you can oogle...  ;)

I'll follow the link once I get home.  It's a miracle they haven't blocked JD yet, so I don't try to push it any more than one site during work hours.   :-*

Possible new TOD deluxe?



Also, new Target exclusive battlepacks...

Man, really should have waited for battle packs I guess :P.  Oh well, at least I know there's another chance to get a couple of the TLC figures I can't find if nothing else.  I hope those are ToD deluxe figures as well, although the mine cart sort of looks like it was just made for the diorama - we'll see.  Here's hoping though.

Tank Showdown is great news, as it makes the two hardest figures to find from this line (I'm still missing them) available again. I'm so glad I didn't buy Henry on eBay, the BIN's are insane.

As for the ToD set-up, I sure hope elements of it other than the figures are things that we're actually gonna be seeing in the line. (crocs, rope bridge, cage, mine carts)

Oh, and a Tank Showdown battle pack might mean we're getting the tank after all!  :D

Do you think those battle packs will include the accessories (e.g., Henry's hat and glasses)?

I've avoided this line for the most part, but my four year old would wig out for that Tank BP.

At first I sort of scoffed at the battle packs since a lot are repacks.  But they do look nice and make sense.  I sure hope those are TOD deluxe sets there.  I have not bought the jungle cutter.  I may go for it with those 3 figures.  I have not bought Devchencko or the soldier.  I am holding out for the Hanger 51 US troops outfits.  But that may be a cool way to get them and a way for me to justify getting the Cutter.

Am I glad to see that Tank Showdown BP. I can't find a Henry Jones at all.

Same here, hopefully it includes all the accessories from the basic figure(s).
