SDCC'09 Toht, Dietrich, Ark Ghost = HOAX
« on: July 22, 2009, 09:03 AM »
I just saw a story on Yakface that apparently there are some new Indiana Jones figures on display at SDCC. Here's a link to the photobucket gallery: http://s560.photobucket.com/albums/ss44/jcazale/

The thing is, if you look at the close-up of the accessories that come with the Toht in the Toht/Dietrich 2-pack, you'll see on the next level down there looks to be a guy with his arm "on fire" - based on what I can see of the outfit it looks like he's from the scene in Marion's bar at the beginning of the movie.

If these are indeed coming, I am not surprised at all that they're using the fact that they have two Toht head sculpts to anchor two of the two-packs.

I'm not 100% convinced that those rumors of the Ark Ghost were indeed legit, since I highly doubt that ANY of these products have been worked on "new" since the line went on "hiatus".

My guess is that there are more of these since there isn't a single Indy figure pictured and with the exception of Toht, none of the lost RoTLA figures figures are shown (Indy in German Uniform, Saphito, Marion in White Dress, German Mechanic)

I hope this isn't another pre-ordered game thing like SW: Force Unleashed with the Stormtrooper Cmdr. I want Toht !!!  The side car is awesome, Dietrich is sweet, Ark Ghost is cool.

I wouldn't be surpise that Indy in German Uniform, Saphito, Marion in White Dress, German Mechanic are coming in 2 packs.  Maybe they would release the Flying Wing (Most requested Indy Vehicle) or KOTCS Russian Duck Vehicle (that would be sweet)

I forsee

Repack Indy / Saphito
German Indy / Marion (White Dress)
Repack Horse Indy / German Mechanic


Let's hope this happens, We want TOHT !!!

Nice stuff. It'll be interesting to find out the deal with these.

Hmmm... according to the little signs, they say:

IJ Classic 3 3/4" Titanium Vehicle Asst. for the motorcycle
and
IJ Classic 3 3/4" VideoGame 2-Packs for the two-packs

Veeeeeeerrrry interesting...  sure hope they are legit and not someone's idea of a joke!

Wow, I hope these are legit as well - and not impossible to get.  Like it has been mentioned before, Hasbro really seemed to be hitting their stride with the Indy line (ToD wave in particular) right as it was being cancelled.  Hopefully these will see the light of day, and in decent enough numbers so we can get them without too much trouble.  I was just going through my Indy shelf yesterday thinking of trying to track down a couple of the deluxes/vehicles I passed on the first time around.

I would love to see Indy return I stocked up on so many $1.00 figures that I use in customs all the time. I hope to see the canceled Wave as well as some other characters.  This is an unexpected & welcomed surprise.

The best part about this new stuff is that we don't have to deal with another ****** movie to get it.

Fun to see, but Dietrich looks weak.  Swivel shoulders and elbows, and those legs look like they're from the motorcycle German that can barely stand.

Dietrich doesn't need super articulation anyway, good for me.
