Also, a set with all that in it wouldn't have a $40 price point; it'd be a lot higher. The minifigs alone would bump the price up considerably.

In their other Lucasfilm-licensed theme, they do revisit vehicles and locales every so often, so I do think there's a slight possibility they'd revisit the jungle action from KotCS, though I don't know how likely it is.

Yeah, I've noticed that (but I suppose I didn't point it out). At any rate, the line would really need some legs to ever get to the point where they treat the jungle chase sequence more accurately.

This will eot happen. I'm really sorry but I know lego won't produce 50 ants. I'm thinking a small $10 set with dovchenko (no hat), indy, ants, an ant hill and 1 or 2 trees. And then a $30-$40 set called jungle chase with spalkos car, a duck, spalko, mutt, oxley (with skull), marion, indy and 2 soldiers. This way you can get all of the jungle adventures in a more accurate set . I really think that eventually they will redo to old KOTCS sets starting with the cemtery this year, then next year they should do the rocket sled and area 51 and the motorcycle chase then the year after that start redoing the jungle scenes.

I think it depends in part upon just how large a set it would be. For sets over $60 or so, I think they'll go only with either highly iconic scenes (the combined Temple of Doom parts in the Temple of Doom set, for example), or do major scenes from a new movie in current release (as with the Temple of the Crystal Skull set). With KotCS perhaps not held in quite the same regard as the "original trilogy," I think it's somewhat unlikely we'll get another really huge set from it, but I do think a mid-sized set around $40 or $50 would be possible, and it could conceivably be a two-vehicle set from the jungle chase with most or all of the major characters. I certainly would appreciate it if they did it - it would probably be our best bet for getting Mac and/or Ox. As you say, though, I don't think it'll be particularly soon.

Similarly, I think there are lots of fans who want specific characters officially represented in minifig form, and LEGO is probably well aware of this, but they do have a challenge in finding ideal sets to put them all in. LEGO's not going to do sets of things like offices and classrooms, or probably even the warehouse; to work as viable sets, models ideally should have various action features, moving parts, etc., and recreate scenes with lots of action or other visual interest. The warehouse is something lots of devoted fans would dig, but a set has to be a mass-market toy first and foremost, so a warehouse is unlikely, since most kids aren't going to be too excited by a bunch of stacks of boxes. The same goes for most college / university scenes.

Considering those very issues, then, I think our best bet for getting Marcus would be something from the tank battle / chase; possibly the same for Sallah. Not sure about a Raiders Sallah, but perhaps if / when they revisit the Well of Souls (which I do think relatively, somewhat likely - it's as iconic and memorable as they come, and while it's been done it was one of the original launch sets in the theme, so it'll be one of the first "done" scenes to turn into a "it's been ages since we could get a ____ set" set, and there's a fair bit of room for improving and expanding upon the original set).

I'd like to see the Raven represented, though I don't think they'd do that as a large set - since the tavern itself wouldn't be loaded with action features, I could see them doing it as a smaller set, around $10 to $25, featuring just a section of the bar and maybe one or two tables, with a handful of minifigs (Marion, Indy, a henchman or two, and yes, Toht).

Thanks Fixer! I spent a little more time on it today and actually managed to finish it too! This is what the final version looks like:

I'm hoping that, if they even make another wave, it'll include some the of the big guns (or goons). Marcus, Sallah, Toht, Walter Donovan, Vogel, Mac, and Oxley.

I'd really love to see a warehouse set from KOTCS. As crazy as I am, I bought about 30 of the 3x4 (I think) crates from S@H Pick a Brick. I think that could be a good $20-$30 set with a pile of crates (or bricks to look like crates) and the Jeep Spalko/ Indy drives. Maybe some mechanism to make the bricks fly in the air like when he drove through them. Add in some rafters, and that would be one bad set.

I still find it funny that the LEGO line is two years in and seems to be doing well. Almost all the new sets are on backorder on LEGO Shop@Home. I was catching up on an old Force Cast from this past Christmas and Hasbro's Star Wars and Indy big shot Darrell DuPreist (spelling?) said that for Indy to sell well, it has to have some sort of media to go with it (movies, perhaps a TV series). I think the LEGO line has really proved that to be false. Hopefully we'll get another year of it.

The bridge scene from Temple of Doom would be really cool and so would the tank chase scene from Last Crusade. I'd like to see a vogel minifigure. I for one though like making custom stuff much more then buying the sets. I'll have to post my custom Lego Indy stuff soon.

I'm thinking the Tank from Last Crusade is pretty much a sure bet. However, I'm really hoping for more playset/temple/enviorments over vehicles. Indiana Jones needs places to explore, ey? I’d love to see some add-on’s for the Temple of Doom set. A spike chamber and bug room would be nerdgasmic. The bridge scene would be difficult, but possible. Any chance to build up a cheap army of Thuggee would be welcomed, otherwise we’ll have to spend $99 for only a Thug or two. I’d also really love to see the Grail challenges in Lego form, including the Knight and false Grails. Toht in Lego form would ease the wounds of never getting one from Hasbro too.

Aye, the LC tank would be great!

But my absolute fave would be the LC circus train, complete with giraffes, rhinos, snakes and a lion!

Can't really complain about the Lego Indy line, which went farther than most.

I was tremendously pleased with this line of Indy merchandise. Lego did a tremendous job. I was only able to buy four of the sets at the time because I was in between jobs for a bit, and much of my collecting focus was on the Hasbro Action Figure line. Some day I'd like to complete the collection by obtaining at least one, if not two of each made.

That being said, if the line had continued, or if it ever re-launches. I would love to see the Grail Temple rendered in Lego. It's really a crime that it was never made available as a playset either for Hasbro's Indy Action Figure line, or Lego Indy.

More than any other Indyverse set piece, it has in droves, the most important feature that lends itself to playset translation: Booby Traps! And the Lego scale makes larger endeavors of this magnitude attainable. C'mon Lego, we want our Grail Temple!

Of course I would love to see Lego for every significant Indy scene. But realistically, if I could only have two more choices from the poll list, I'd choose the Tank Chase, and YIJ Circus Train. I would also love to see a Map Room set! Still, I'm happy with what we were given.

Not really a contribution, but did any Lego Indy scene/character make it into their movie. I caught it with the offspring, and didn't note it, initally.

I wish they would release some of the old sets. My kids are going crazy over Indy Legos now and I have to pay $15 or more just for Indy...that they loose a week later it seems.

Well, if Marty McFly and the Ghostbusters can get sets then maybe Indy fans should go the Lego CUUSOO route if they want more ?

Lego's license with Lucasfilm runs to 2022, but likely will be extended again for films like Indy 6.
