I liked the RPG Indy's head and was going to go that route...  I was just going to use removable hat indy's hat.  A little larger than I'd like, but carving out the smaller one was going to be a bitch, and to get it to actually sit.  It would've probably taken a sloshed resin mold to actually do that so it was thin, but still hollow, and could fit the RPG Indy's head.

I was really toying with the how's on doing interchangeable torsoes but never came up with something I liked that wasn't going to take more work than I wanted to do.

Was also having a bitch of a time finding thick thread to do the whip as I wanted it.

I'm glad they are making it available.  Can they also make T.O.D. figures available to?  ::)

I'm thinking they're probably just factory stuff that was made but the line got canned and it didn't get carded.  They dump stuff like that fairly often actually. 

The pictures are kind of bright so it's hard to tell if the paint aps are sloppy but the veil on Willy Scott makes me think they may be legit...  Knock-offs usually cut corners on stuff like that.

It's cheap enough I may buy a set just to see.

New ROTLA SDCC images courtesy of Shayford  :o

German Mechanic - has an awesome "Vintage-y" feel to him - love the cap and wrench
"Idol" Indy - pretty much the deluxe figure with a different head - still nice.
Satipo - pure coolness - the spider swarm accessories is totally awesome  ;D

Toht - another awesome figure - love that he comes with the poker and medallion
Marion - great female proportion - the sculpt of the dress is great - and I love that they only gave her one shoe
"German disguise" Indy - spot-on likeness - love the hairdo too

Love them all except for Idol Indy. Looks too much like the Fedora dude from the beginning of Crusade.

These are just so friggin awesome.  It really is a shame this line didn't run for longer.  Even one full year would have been enough!

Nice!  I just wish they could have done a few more figures.  I assume there is no word yet on how much they will charging for these?  I am assuming at least $10 per figure.

Are there any details yet on what one has to do to pick these up?  Particularly if one isn't going to Comic-Con?
