Yea, I bought the POTC figures and the THOR figures..the POTC figures are CRAP! But the thought of Indy going after THOR's hammer...HMMMMM! Too bad he couldn't lift it..or could he?

Those military figures are fantastic!

I picked up the Jack Sparrow figure from this line for my wife and it didn't look too bad. She hasn't opened it yet, so I can't give an informed review of it, but it looks a little better than the Zizzle figure to me.

The upcoming Rebel Fleet Trooper figure from Hasbro's Star Wars line comes with a nifty looking ball cap that might be good for a custom Jock:

I will admit the Sparrow figure's head sculpt/likeness is SLIGHTLY better - if only because the Zazzle sparrows had ZERO resemblance to Johnny Depp and the new one has about a 7-8% resemblance.

However, the rest of the figure really comes up short. Just cruddy detailing and crude sculpting.

The Zazzle figures had wonderful costumes with terrific detail. The new figures really pale in comparison.

Yeah, it's kind of weird, the ball cap really should have come with the Rebel Honor Guard figure as the Rebel Troopers didn't wear them, but I am all for any accessories they want to throw in there.

Only the second two movies, actually (though given that the characters cross over... you can't really tell). And they did make one half-skeleton Jack, but that's all.

I didn't think the Zizzle characters were that great, honestly. I liked the detail, yeah, but they felt cheap. As inarticulate as the figures were (but I suppose pirates really aren't all that articulate), for Zizzle to call them "action" figures seems almost dishonest. They were almost like Papo figures.

Yeah, I'm hoping there's more movie based stuff in the works as well.

It remains to be seen if we get some cool period style vehicles. Even a motorcycle would be great.

Here's hoping we get some OFFICIAL pictures of this line asap!

Hmm.

I must amend my earlier stance on the new "Pirates" figures.

While I still think they are fairly crappy, I picked up the Penelope Cruz figure the other day (Angelica?) and she's a pretty decent figure.

Very nice headsculpt (at least a passing resemblance to the actress) and a few nice bits of removable clothing - including a hat.

There is definite custom potential here for the Indy line, though I'm not exactly sure what just yet.

Still, not too shabby. And she stands pretty much shoulder to shoulder with figures in the SW and Indy lines, so no major scale issues, near as I can tell from a cursory comparison.

Yeah, that's pretty awesome. Would definitely tower over a 3 3/4" inch Indy and friends.

I poked around the sideshow site recently - so many cool and original dioramas for the 12" inch figures. Some, like the Temple of Anubis, Serpent Temple and Shrine of the Dragon, would look spiffy with the Indy figures on them.

Just wish they could make smaller dios, too!

Should also point out that some images of the upcoming Captain America line have surfaced.

Sadly, most of the line consists of endless Cap variants from comics and other sources (much like the Iron Man 2 line) and barely any figures from the actual film.

Still, the Red Skull, at least, looks pretty cool -

That Red Skull does look mighty cool.

I saw the POTC: OST "Zombie" and "Gunner" figures yesterday. They looked like they might be useful in the "Indy-verse".

Haven't seen those yet.
