But the line is struggling and so far there as been only 2 waves or series , and of coarse does not look like a third is in the near future . However Indiana Jones has stood the test of time, these movies have a major fan base (as you all know ). And I don’t think this line will be limited to a few waves. Hasbro could do so many things, how about a Indiana Jones Unleashed line . That would be great , or Indiana Jones transformers, which I think would be a bad idea , but people would buy them. Indiana Jones will be around for a long time…..

Well of course you both could well be right and I hope you are!

But I just think that this line doesnt have legs. Dont misunderstand me I will buy every figure they release and have been wanted indy figures for decades.
But just picture the aisles filled with racks of nazis, old guys, and mulitples of Indy. You gotta look at the bigger picture and not as an Indy fan, cos it is pretty niche. The new movie, and it maybe awesome, is not going to drum up fanatical fans like the old movies did. I mean picture how big of a peg warmer these guys will be - monkey man, nazi soldier, sallah, in fact MOST of the line will be peg warmers from start to finish. To a non Indy fan these are THE most boring figures in the store. The Lost comparison is a good one, this is a property with a VERY big fan base. The figures are mostly well produced, but you cant get away from the fact that they are really BORING figures.

I believe that after each film gets a second wave the line is pretty much over, apart from exhausting most of the figures options anyway, the line will have been around for over a year and interest will have died before the summer ends.

Just my opinion....

Yeah to you and I maybe. But there is a play value to them for kids, who are after all the people that buy toys.

The big product push will help to ignite things.

We have the new movie, food items, the re-issue of the original DVD collection, new video games, apparel and other goodies. This should create enough interest from parents and kids in the toys. Hopefully it will keep the line healthy into whatever Lucas/Spielberg come up with next - new movie or animated tv show?

I hope if they do another movie it will be with Indy, I like Shia and I am sure Mutt will be cool , But without Indiana Jones , well there is no Indiana Jones . I do however think an animated TV show would be great, they could bridge the gap between TLC and KOTCS

I guess any figures are possible, depends on how long the line lasts.

Going forward I can see Lucasfilm going with future movies and maybe a tv series. I guess it totally depends how well this movie is recieved and I am sure it will be a MASSIVE hit.

Hasbro did state that they would address a few of the Young Indy, (from the TV show) as figures. There would not be an extensive line like the assortment from the movies, however.

I don't know for sure, but I would assume that the motorcycle with side car may come with both Henry and Indiana Jones action figures with the needed articulation.

According to IndianaJonesShop, this wave ships May 1. Wonder if that is correct and if these will be on shelves May 1? Entertainment Earth shows them as "Coming Soon" with a tentative arrival date of July.

We just got our first glimpse of this wave not even two weeks ago and haven't seen any carded pics yet.

Will they be in stores on May 1st? Not a chance.

It's July, Not that Indyshop isn't official but they aren't manufacturing them. Hasbro is and they said July.
