Good Dr said they were craptastic. Well, he didn't say that but he said they were no good.

Which target are we talking here?

Are they the 3 3/4 inch ones? I'm planning on using the "head" from them for customs (if they are the 3/34 inch ones) for GI Joes as they appear to be ball jointed.

Happy hunting

The stuff I saw at Toy Fair few weeks back was very glossy plastic and poor sculpts. The high end collectibles (such as the GenConOZ exclsuive bust) are a different story...these look very nice.

Good idea. Are the 2 packs planned Mousey? I just want that Ark of the Covenant that comes with the disguised Indy.

and we must have the Potato Head...I mean the THEME IS IN THE POTATO!!!

I saw them today.

You know 20 years ago these would have been sweet, today you would expect better.

The are on par with the POTF Leia for likeness, Adventure Heroes look better. (And whats this crap about releasing vehicals without a figure included that just cheap.)

If they where half the price I would probably consider it. Maybe when they are on clearance it a couple of weeks and the next fad rolls thru.

Hello People,

I saw the "Indiana Jones" figures today and must say, I was dissapointed. I guess for the reasons most people have already stated. I think Hasbro could have managed better.

Take Care,
Darren

I saw them at David Jones on Sunday. Just as crap as described. After spending all these years getting to a reasonable face sculpt of Harrison Ford they use something that looks like it was dropped and trodden on.

I nabbed the regular indy with Gold Idol, okay, but no where near 15.99 worth nor paticualrly good, but thought it would go well in the eclectic indy display I have.

I can see no reason for HAsbro to wide release all the different guards and characters I do not een recall having watched the movies at least 5 times each, it seems like a massive shot in the foot, but I guess we will see.

I reckon they will look at the sales of these in Australia and think "Well we won't bring <<insert new figure line here>> out there now".
But then again it is Hasbro and they'll probably just look at it and go "But its Indy! Why aren't you buying them?! FINE! I will release silver ones and holographic ones and look at this plastic gun! It's like the one in the movie, now you can be Indy too! That should get sales going."

Big range of these at Target Melbourne (CBD) today but all Raiders of the Lost Ark figures/sets. $15.99 as described or $24.99 for a deluxe figure which is a figure with a bit of a diorama.

I'm not sure why but I imagined these were going to be Crystal Skull-related.

... I think for the first wave they are being released in movie sucession, so the next wave we will see figs from Temple of Doom, then Last crusade etc....

Got my first look at these today and had to remind myself what decade it was. As well as being bad, they`re over priced and tiny. What a waste.

I picked up the Raiders with idol version of Indy tonight at Target. I looked through the 8 or so Indy's they had and found one with decent eye paint. It's actually a pretty cool little figure.

The deluxe figures there were $12 instead of the usual $24.

Picked up indy with the idol today at big w, so did my brother. Was really fascinated by the hidden treasure you find in the tiny boxes. I think i might get the rest of them.

TRU highpoint has more of a variety of figures, they've got the 12 inch talking dolls!

The Indy has quite a few sound bites. But the mouth on at least 4 of the 6 I saw were already torn cos of the rubber face. I really wish I could want them 12 inch figs....as I really want the 12 inch scale ark....but alas...it si s never to be unless Hasbro decides to sell off the reminants after the passport to adventure promotion.

Also don't ditch the pics of the artifacts you get with these, they are for the passport o get (spoiler for the 3.34 inch, Indy and horse fer AHs and ark of covenant fer the 12 inchers)
