I searched all over the booth, nothing to be found. Maybe more to report after the presentation tomorrow.

Had a funny thought...maybe they will all be 2 packs, and they will use up the thousands of Indys left from 2008...Indy and Nepal Thug...Indy and German Machanic...Indy and Marion...Indy and Satipo...

Hey, if they did I'd buy.  I can use Indy figures for customs, that's not an issue, but I cannot make figures as good as they had that weren't released.

BTW the German on the motorcycle (driver) uses the Death Star Gunner's arms.  I found that funny.  :)

Yeah, but so many of the 1977 SW costumes were made from military surplus that it makes total sense.

No mention of Indy at the panel. Not sure where this stuff was shown.

Last year didn't Hasbro add things to their displays as the weekend went on? I am a tad bit confused that they didn't have an Indy slide or two at the end of the Star Wars slide deck, but perhaps they wanted to keep it Star Wars-only?

The whole Funeral Pyre "We want to know what you think!" tease as well as the lack of pics does not give me high hopes for these Indy figures. Hopefully later today or tomorrow some news will pop up.

Sorry - I thought when he said 12:00 "today" on July 25th, he meant 12 o'clock on Saturday afternoon, not Sunday.

Either way, it's now four hours after an hour-long panel would have ended - has any news poppped up?

If so that's a pretty well done hoax.  The images leaded really early and the little cards in the plexiglass displays are identical to the ones Hasbro used for the SW displays. 

Maybe it's like the Hoth Han hood from a few years ago... just too early to show and someone screwed up.

Well if the mob in the RS forums says they're fakes it must be true.  :P

Well, it's not just over on the RS boards, it's on a couple of Indy collector/fan site boards as well...

These are custom figures, nothing more.

Oh well....
