I just saw figures from the Percy Jackson 4" line.

I only saw two figures in that scale, the rest were in a larger scale.

The figures aren't in perfect scale to Hasbro's Indy/Star Wars lines. The height of the Percy figure was the same, but the proportions are larger. Percy's head, for instance, was friggin' huge.

The other figure was some kind of faun/satyr dude. Didn't really look like great compatibility or even custom fodder with those guys, but I wonder what else is in the line.

I am also curious if Zizzle will pick up the POTC line again when the recently-announced fourth movie is released. That was a pretty good line, even if articulation and likeness left a little to be desired. But I guess we have a couple years on that one.

although its been said that the BBI, XD and such are a little big. I bought some XD DAK figures and they look great next to the Indy german troops and sat in the Cargo truck.

I'd also say, some GI Joe figures would go well with Indy. Such as General Hawk and the 91 TBC General Hawk mold would go well, since its got a very 40s WW2 look with the BDU pants, A-2 and general's peak cap.

86 Hawk


02 General Tomahawk (uses 91 Gen Hawk mold)


General Flagg



Both General Flagg's do come with general's hats

With those figures, you can just imagine them giving Indy a mission during the 40s.

The Alamut Gate Playset is already planned for my Streets of Cairo diorama!

That's the first up close shot I've seen, and it looks good. It'll certainly add a flavour of Cairo to an Indy diorama.

Very nice. The figures do look slightly too much XII century to really go with Indy, but the playset looks perfect.

The guys on the left look like they're wearing cricket pads!

The head would be okay to swap with an Indy Cairo thug, with the face painted a darker skin tone, as long as these figures aren't too big in comparison.

That gate does look interesting. I presume the holes are for lamps or torches.

I think the horses would also go well with the Indy line too.

The gate is looking awesome. Would love to good pics of the rest of the figures, but I fear they are a little bigger than Indy/SW.

They actually 4 inches instead of the regular 3.5 inches... right?

I believe so, though I certainly haven't seen any in person.

All sites I've read about the PoP figures, horses and playset are gonna be 4" scale. rather than 3 3/4" scale. But I'm sure with some sanding, they could be reduced in size

High quality pics of the Prince of Persia figures....

http://www.spawn.com/news/news2.aspx?id=13673

I'm less than impressed with the offerings. They don't look like they'd be terribly useful for Indy figures or custom fodder, especially given the scale difference (4 inches instead of 3 3/4).

The horse, I fear, will also be too big to really work.

And, I'm sorry, but Jake Gyllenhaal just looks laughable in this role. The figures have TOO good a likeness. I cannot take this character seriously at all.


However, I still really love the Gate playset and will definitely grab one.

The gate now has foot pegs all over it which will need to be removed, along with all the play feature bits. It still looks very useful, though. It'sl be a shame if these really are closer to 4", as the horse looks good, and suitably Arabic, if the saddle, bridle, reins and stirrups could be repainted.

I note with interest that they (http://www.jazwares.com/) are also producing a 3 3/4" A-Team line for the new film. Can we dare hope that they produce a "suited" Face (perfect for us Indy customisers) and some army fodder that'd double for Spalko's troops ?

A suited face would be great. I could also start working on my customs from "The Hangover."

Hope we get some pics of these figures soon!

Jazwares doing A-Team....oh dear. Why not Hasbro or Mattel or Playmates (despite them going bankrupt)

Well, not exactly useful for customizations, but the clunky Iron Man Mk. I armor would fit surprisingly well in an IJ display.

Errex, I had the same feeling about the Mark I armour - it looks really pulpy, and my favourite of the Hot Toys Iron Man figures.

I don't see it, but I'm happy to see Iron Man pop up anywhere!
Good call!

Hot toys? It's from the new Hasbro line. Same scale as IJ, SW, Marvel Universe, etc.

I like the Hot Toys 1/6 version, as he would stand with the Sideshow Indy. With all the welded plates he looks crude enough to be a pulp construction.

Totally agree. So much so that I went out and snagged one this morning for customising purposes. It has a real steampunk aesthetic to it. I can just imagine this fitting into either and Indy or a Hellboy story. Some kind of experimental Nazi battle armour. Ever seen the illustrations Mike Mignola did of The Rocketeer fighting evil robots ? The Mark I armour is perfect...

Steampunk indeed. Here is what I did with another Iron Man, Steampunk Super Battle Droid. I wish I had seen this figure and used it for the base. I also think this fits in with Hellboy pretty good.








this is the base figure

Awesome custom Spry ! I don't recognise the armour version you used for the base - which is it ?

That custom is great. That base figure has just the right amount of detail to be augmented on.
