Good. Was hoping that weird position it's in on the box isn't the one it's stuck in.

I already sold the Iron man figures...I am keeping the Hulk figures... These guys are going to continue to send me IJ stuff.. The next thing I get is something that NOBODY has seen and Hasbro did not show..(UNLESS I TOTALLY MISSED IT )....It is going to be one of the nicest items in my collection.

there is a pic of the whip laying flat in my pics. It looks like he is whipping it when you stand him with it.

right now, Hasbro still has the hat a little too big on the removable hat KOTCS indy.. not that I care LOL!! the size is perfect when it is sculpted on... They do need to make a ROTLA Indy without a hat though.

Yeah, I really wish the Indy Cairo's legs were more articulated, so I'll figure out a way to customize it when I get one

They can't be...they are part of the action feature...I'm sure they will do a SA version of that figure....It is my favorite version and the KOTCS jacketless figure is AMAZING!


no, the whip is just very flexible...it returns to it's shape that you see in the flat photos but you can bend it like crazy.

tnswman, do you think you could post more pics of the "official" bullwhip? What is it made out of?

Man, that Indy and German soldier look amazing. Can't wait!

There is reallly no more that I can show other than what I have already.. .Look close at the pics with the whip. As you can see, I can even coil this one too.

It is made of a rubbery plastic.....REMEMBER!! this whip is PRE-FORMED so that Indy can swing from it...The regular figures will not have the little loop in the whip.. However, they will all have some type of shape to them.

I think he was referring from the Media Press Kit "official" bullwhip (that came with the DVD of the teaser/trailer).

Oh LOL!!

It is a leather type whip...Probably man-made but it is leather feling and looking.

I will post more pics in a few days.

I actually saw another on of these being sold on ebay......If you can find it, grab the press kit that was released a while back...It has a dvd with Indy info on it. this whip and trailer are the suppliment to that kit.

Fair enough, I really do understand you collect official stuff, but lets just refer to that as "Official Indiana Jones Braided Leather Strips for Kids" from now on.

Ya I saw one of them on ebay and was like wtf? Its all tied up in a rectangle no less. Just wierd to call it a whip.

That is the sexiest bag ever

But the whip isn't even worth the money
I got it the first time I used it broke
It's cheaply made and if you want to get a whip, actually take the time to get a good one
