What Indy product are you most excited about?

With today's announcement of the licensing partners, what product are you most excited about?

I'm actually excited about the Burger King tie-in. I'm anxious to see what the premiums will be and it's always fun to see a movie market themselves with a restaurant.

LEGO! Definitely LEGO!
For several years I've hoped that the Lucasfilm/LEGO partnership would expand with an Indy line added to the (excellent) Star Wars line they already have and now it's finally a reality.
Truly great news!

Sadly, there are no Burger Kings in Belgium (a darn shame), so getting the Indy 4 Kid's Meal toys will be difficult...

No doubt we'll get a commercial of the creepy "Burger King" wearing a fedora.

Why oh why did you have to go there? I'm not sure I want Burger King stuff. I'm sure I'll get it, but I don't want to go there to get it.

There are plenty of Burger Kings in Germany, and I'll get my ass there, since there are none in Luxemburg...

The Legos and the Action Figures are tied in my book.

This deal they inked lasts 20 years...so think about how many different things that are going to be made.

I'm thrilled by all of it, but I think I'm most excited about Legos and the action figures. Although some of my favorite stuff to collect over the years, for other things, has been the "oddball" stuff. Like party decorations, pens, pillow cases, that sort of stuff.
-For some reason, I'm totally pumped about the idea of getting Happy Meal type toys, also. BRING IT ON!!!

I been looking forward to a DK Visual guide of Indiana Jones for a long time. Hopefully to cover all the films. Maybe even with some Young Indy details for his background.

Why didn't they have these legos when I was younger! I used to make my own indy legos, and would have given anything for something like this!

A visual guide of the films would be great.


I'm going to ogle over finally having a proper Indy action figure.

Indy isn't SW. It does have hundreds of cool background characters. I see we'll see Indy merchandise for a couple years, then it'll die down. Then it'll come back & keep repeating itself.

For me it's the figures. Its gonna be a real tough year next year for my wallet, what with me collecting SW, Spider-Man & NOW Indiana Jones. Hasbro's gonna get alot of my cash!

Well... better late than never, right?
Anyway, one is never too old to play with LEGO (at least that's what I've been telling myself )

The Hasbro action figures and Legos. Here's hoping Hasbro does some Indy figures in the SW VOTC style. Oh, yeah, and the the video games!

I am definitely interested in the figures, but the books will be great.. especially the mass market Indy diary with inserts etc..

I feel the exact same way. I was upset when I found out they had Batman legos, but now Indy? I've made my peace with the fact that I'm going to have to buy them and I don't care how ridiculous I look going to the toy section. Who says 19 year olds can't build legos?

Role Play

Well I definitely love the idea of Lego, and the figs from Hasbro, but something I noticed no one has talked about is the 'role play' aspect. Hasbro owns Wizard of the Coast which makes DnD, and Star Wars role playing books, and the miniatures game. I think they may be doing Indiana Jones now too, even though nothing has stated that officially, but I don't know how else Hasbro would make games?

Indy Heroclix would be awesome!!! I don't know what they'd call them, though. The name Indyclix is all ready taken.

Hasbro tends to use the phrase 'role play' for accesorries that allow you to 'become' the character (ie... gun, whip, hat, etc...)

For SW it's rifles and blasters.
