At least these prices are a bit more reasonable! Even though it's not the TOD wave, it still gives an idea of what the prices will be.http://www.toywiz.com/ijser3set.html

I'm pretty sure that price is for a whole case of figures, given as they list the assortment number. Thecase which will likely come with 3X Mutt w/snake and 4X Monkey Man too

I love the Mola Ram fig, and he's got a flaming heart!

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.

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:

Quote:
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.

Exactly. We went through this with the Last Crusade wave, too. Indy was the last figure we saw, after seeing the others all at the same time.

Thanks! Awesome. For having just survived the Temple of Doom, Indy looks surprisingly clean and intact...no blood, dirt, scratches, sweat, nothing...

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.

Look at the flap on Indy's holster; it looks movable. Might we be getting a more realistic and properly scaled workable holster? If so, that's pretty cool.

Sweet! Indy looks good, looks like he comes with a working holster, which is actually in scale this time...but what is that on his left leg???

Willie's headsculpt looks perfect!

Still hard to tell if that is Indy's whip around Shortie's neck.

Mola Ram comes with an in scale Kali Chailice!

Because the site he has linked to took down the photos. Maybe they didn't have permission to show them.

Never mind. I got it now. Grabbed them all from that site before they removed them. Indy looks fantastic!

Was kind of hoping that Indy would come with at least one Sankara Stone.

Also, looks like the two Thuggee have removable "push knives" (I don't know what the real name is) in the sashes around their chest!

***EDIT*** They are called "Katars"...I should have remembered that from Diablo II.

AWESOME!! FINALLY!! INDY!!

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.

I'm using Explorer...and they only work when I have the linked site open in another window...I'm not a dufus but I'm not a tech nerd either...but I've never experienced that before...

Yeah, it's definitely Firefox. I'm on the new v. 3.0. I downloaded them and they work fine, just can't see them embedded in the browser.
