So I did some select viewing of Temple of Doom just a few moments ago. I was specifically looking for alternate Thuggee army builders. The priests certainly go without saying. Considering we’re being given an adventure heroes priest, I’d say it’s a safe assumption that we’ll get a figure of one eventually. The Thuggee we’re currently getting is actually slightly different then the majority shown in the film. It’s essentially the same all but for the scarf covering the face. Most the thugs faces aren’t covered, specifically for all the major action scenes. Then you have alternate weapons you could include. These men are shown with swords, rifles, revolvers, and bows. The assassin that attempts to choke Indiana appears to have a completely unique outfit and features interesting facial hair. If we get the Monkey man…why not the Thuggee assassin? There are many slave drivers in the film. They’re basically the giant thug but otherwise lacking the red sash and bulky body. They’re especially featured in the quarry battle and mine cart chase. But most interesting was somewhat of a surprise. I noticed that around Willie’s sacrifice, when Indiana is under the black sleep, once he breaks free there is a quick scene of the Maharaja being taken away by what appears to be (to my knowledge) entirely unique Thuggee soldiers never shown anywhere else. Very interesting. Lots of options for more thug army builders.
What has been confirmed? I read in the hasbro Q & A thread that there WILL be a bridge Indy.
It has been confirmed that Rpoe Bridge Indy is in this set, he's just not pictured. Urban Collector, the site this image originated from, even list him in their description:
Indiana Jones Basic Action Figure Asst 200806 is an Urban-Collector pre-order. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was the second film in the immensely popular Indiana Jones film series, and these 3 3/4' tall action figures recreate the characters from the spectacular film! Characters available include Indiana Jones, Temple Thug, Short Round, Willie Scott, Temple Guard, and Mola Ram. Each figure comes with movie-accurate accessories on blister card packaging.
Indy looks...bald. Idk...the figures looks a little weird...Im sure It'll be sorted out however
You have to remember that the figures in these shots are still somewhat prototypical, so they quite literally have some rough edges. Plus, these are super close-up pics; most of those rough details won't be visible when you have the figures in hand. The quality of these and the LC wave shows what Hasbro is really capable of with the Indy license. I think we're starting to get up to par with some of the company's Star Wars offerings now.
I'm torn, though. The sculpt looks great, but, as has been pointed out, too clean. Also, the face sculpt looks a lot better...or is it just that it's a master paint job Buuuuuuuuuut (and you knew this was coming...) is it just me or does it look like he's smiling?? I was hoping for a more desperate look on his face.
This isn't the face that shouted "Mola Ram! Prepare to meet Kali...in HELL!!!"
Also, what in the heck is wrong with his right index finger Hope they fix that.
