Behold!

p.s. - I've seen a full body pic in another site and it looks like Hasbro is - yet again - recycling Toht parts. He's the gift that keeps on giving!

He does look very useful. Do you know if the heads attach the same way as the Indy line?

I really dig this scale of figure, and these look well sculpted.

The Marvel Universe line does have ball-jointed heads, as do the Indy/SW and current GI Joe figures.

Not all heads and necks are created equal, though. But here's hoping it's close enough (and there are always ways to modify when it isn't.)

That's good news - as a balljoint can be easily sanded, or a head packed.

I'll keep an eye for these.

Saw this today, and picked it up.







It's a Maisto 1:18 Citroen 15 CV Traction Avant from 1952. From the front it could pass for a 1930s Traction Avant, but the bigger boot/trunk are 1952 design. There's no way an Indy figure is going to fit inside, but I think it makes a nice looking backdrop.

If Professor X doesn't pan out as viable custom fodder for suited characters, perhaps these will fit the bill:

Way to be on the ball, Kevin!

Just saw the "MIB 3" figures in the stores today.

Picked up an Agent K figure.

They stand just slightly taller than the Indy/SW figures.

But it's always great to have more "civilian" looking figures for Indy customs and dioramas.

It's a very good Tommy Lee Jones likeness (Captain America custom potential), but, naturally, he's wearing the MIB trademark sunglasses, which kind of spoils it.

Interestingly, the suit jacket for the K and J figures is a single separate piece. The figures wear it like a vest, but you could remove it if you took the arms off and use it on another body. For all those customizers out there.....

Kind of digging this forthcoming "Mortal Kombat" diorama for 3 3/4" figures.

Skull shaped altar? Chains connecting to stone pillars?

Definite "Temple of Doom" vibe happening here

Hey, so has anyone used the MIB figures for any Indy customs? I used a spare Agent K that I picked up to make a Daniel Craig James Bond:





Worked out pretty well with the Golden Compass Craig head, but the neck peg on the Agent K figure is a little weird.

Looks good, Billy Ray!

I have my Daniel Craig head on my A-Team Faceman body.

But this works great.

Just stumbled across this wacky photo story featuring Indy.

A sample of the wackiness:

LOVE IT!

That comic was seriously funny and, man, that camper is AMAZING.

At first I thought it might be playmobil, but it is way too good.

Need to find out if the company makes any other 1:18 vehicles. So far, found a mini-cooper and some diecast-y cars. Wish to heck they had some period stuff, as that is a marvelous toy.

Alas, I don't need to send my Indy figures on any anachronistic road trips (funny though they may be....)

GREAT FIND!

It was the camper that made me do a second take. Never seen it before, but it somehow got caught up with a Google search for images of Scooby's Camp Scare.

Found one listed on Ebay.

Quote:
HOLIDAY CAMPER

Authentic camper with the scale 1:18 with friction movement drive.
The set has extensive accessories. The windows and doors can also open.
The roof can also be detatched so you can also play inside the detailed interior of the vehicle.
Length approx. 35 cm.
Made by quality plastic

There are two names on the window box: Dickie Toys and Kids Mate.

Comes with two bicycles, two chairs and the table.

I have no need for it, but it does look cool.

When I was a very little nipper I loved playing with my Fisher Price camper van!

Same here. Impressive, but not something I'd buy. I did a quick search on that name on the slim hope they might have something quasi-period. But while I found some spiffy mercedes and mini-coopers, nothing that would fit together with Indy.

This Kickstarter is offering a full range of poseable 4Ē WW2 figures. They all look amazing, the Afrika Korps and Russians would seem to have the most use for Indy collectors. The company behind the Kickstarter has launched several other successful projects, and in fact they were the go-to place to get a sidecar back in 2008-2009 when we were all making custom TLC motorcycle/sidecar combos for the Hasbro figures. Only a few days left if you want to get in on it!

Those look pretty amazing. A shame the german officer doesn't have a tie, it's very close to being the perfect Dietrich body.

Thanks for sharing (and breathing life into this old corpse of a thread)! Awesome stuff.

The German officer thatís currently unlocked would make a great base for Indy in German disguise from Last Crusade. And I should note that itís cheaper to pledge for figures through the Kickstarter than to buy them when they become available in Marauderís store later. You can pledge for one figure or fifty. Only a few hours left if anyone wants to get on board!

The figures are going to be more than twenty bucks? Hmm. May have to pass. The delivery is nearly a year and a half away anyway. I'll just wait and see how I feel when the time comes.

They are offered a la carte on the site, so for example, the Thompson gunner comes with all that gear for $20 through the Kickstarter, but if you were to buy the figure and all that gear separately on the site, it would be more than $20.

Also, the first Russian is now unlocked.

On his latest dig, Dr. Jones makes a startling discovery.

https://imageshack.com/a/img924/1866/C5FO4Z.jpg

This is starting to get out of hand

https://imageshack.com/a/img922/4071/ku3Dkj.jpg

Time to call in an expert

https://imageshack.com/a/img923/8656/0F2Dqq.jpg

$7.99 each at Target.

https://imageshack.com/a/img922/9999/jOgP5m.jpg

These figures utilize something called photorealistic technology which results in some pretty good likenesses. My pics arenít the greatest, but it looks like a mini Sam Neill on my desk. If Indy figures ever return, I hope Hasbro uses this technology to give us a definitive Indy headsculpt.

https://imageshack.com/a/img922/7343/TRzuKs.jpg

A complete list of the new line can be found here: http://www.jptoys.com/index.php

Side note/rant: this is why I just canít get behind Hasbroís 5 POA 3.75Ē figures. Mattel was able to field a line of 3.75Ē figures, with functionally the same articulation as the Indy line, for a licensed property, at basically the same price as the Indy line was 10 years ago. I donít see why Hasbro canít do the same for lines like Star Wars or Marvel.

Awesome job, Kevin! I've seen this figures in the stores. Ellie Satler seems to be the most difficult one to find and it's shocking there's no Malcolm (yet?).

I agree it's insane Hasbro can't offer decent articulation beyond the increasingly rare black/vintage lines which are criminally expensive now when Mattel can release these guys with accessories at a very comfortable pricepoint.

Hasbro still has these beat in terms of headsculpt quality, though. I picked up the Muldoon myself (possible Indy custom fodder, if I ever get to it.) And, if possible, I may take a crack at an Admiral Holdo figure if I can get a cheap Sattler.

But these guys definitely look great alongside Indy figures! Thanks for sharing your great pics!!

With that white suit Iím thinking Tony Montana.

Later this year Marauder is supposed to be releasing a couple suited figures, in grey and black suits. From the looks of it they will put all previously released suit figures in this scale to shame.

Managed to pick up one of those white suits. It'll either end up being parts for Belloq or a Club Obi Wan Indy.

Love that Hasbro is getting insane mileage out of that suit. And some of the parts go all the way back to Toht.
