It's not the years, Rebelscum, it's the mileage. Today Hasbro finally showed us their plans for modern releases of Indiana Jones toys during Hasbro Pulse Con. If you want to watch the Indiana Jones panel in it's entirety, you can watch it here:





Here's a quick wrap up:
This first outing will focus on the classic Indy movies, with all of today's reveals coming from Raiders of the Lost Ark, implying more will come from the new movie that's scheduled to release next year. The Hasbro Indy marketing team (comprised of the same Patrick, Chris, and Eric from the Star Wars team) shared that the initial lines will mirror some of the lines from Star Wars:



Worlds of Adventure - a smaller scale aimed at a younger audience in the same vein as Star Wars Mission Fleet. There were no products revealed from this line today.




Adventure Series - a 6 inch scale aimed at collectors with each movie themed wave featuring a Build-An-Artifact. Each character will come with a designated piece of an artifact that can be assembled once all the pieces have been collected. Think Star Wars Black Series or Marvel Legends. The team said there are currently 25 figures planned in this line for now. The first wave will be a mass retail release, so no exclusives so far. In this first wave featuring characters from Raiders of the Lost Ark, the figures to be released are:

Indiana Jones (Raiders of the Lost Ark)
Major Arnold Toht
Sallah
René Belloq (Ceremonial)
Marion Ravenwood
Build-An-Artifact - Ark of the Covenant



The Adventures of Indiana Jones - a throwback line featuring reissues of vintage figures plus new characters produced in the vintage style. This is a mirror of the Star Wars Retro Collection. the only figure previewed today was classic Indy, which can be pre-ordered today with a scheduled release in springtime 2023. This figure retains the spring-loaded action feature that was present in the vintage toy.


The team also shared that premium role play items will be included in the Indiana Jones line. The first Adventure Series role play item is the Staff of Ra head piece which has a light up feature when inserted into the included base. Scheduled for release in Spring of 2023.

Unfortunately for 3.75 inch collectors, there was no mention of a detailed and articulated 3.75 inch line similar to the Vintage Collection. That's not to say this line won't be pursued in the future, just no mention of it today. The team said to expect more news in 2023.

For our international friends, the team shared that Hasbro Pulse has recently expanded into additional countries within the EU, so if you've been unable to order from Pulse directly in the past, take another look to see if that option is available to you now.


Now on to the pictures, which is what we're all here for!

Well there you have it Rebelscum! We have three confirmed Indy toy lines, with the Worlds of Adventures line being the surprise for me, as well as the absence of a TVC equivalent line. I'm sure you have thoughts, so sound off below!

The entire excitement for this line died for me the second that it was all revealed to be 6". Hasbro is SO tone deaf - what are these figures going to do exactly, stand there on a shelf and look pretty? I want some interaction, I want vehicles, I want playsets and I want to world build and actually have the the figures interact. 6" is lame as hell...

I'm really really happy with these. I could gripe about Indy not having double jointed elbows and personally, I would have prefered Marion in her nepal outfit, Belloq in his white suit and a german soldier instead of Sallah (I just prefer his look from LC), but I won't. I'm just happy that I finally get a good looking Indy and that he is 6Inch. Everything else is a bonus. In other words: I'm all in! Gimme gimme gimme!

I know what you mean. I'll admit that I've shifted over to collecting 6 inch, so in that regard I'm happy. But I just don't know what they're thinking by foregoing a 3.75 inch line, and the real kick in the guts is that they decided to do the 2 inch line for kids. The Mission Fleet style line is aimed squarely at kids, but Indiana Jones is not exactly kid friendly what with all the angel of death melting faces, freaky decomposed bodies/skeletons, scary snake pits, heart extracting black magic, and disintegrating Nazis. I waited until my kids were 10-11 to introduce them to Indy, which I'd say is too old for that line.

If we run into Hasbro at a convention, what message would you want us to pass along to them about a 3.75 inch line? What specific vehicles/playsets would you want in that scale?

I get that you are disappointed about not getting new figures in your preferred scale. But this whole "if it's 6 Inch, it can't be good for anything" angle is weird at best and I'd like to think that I and countless toyphotographers are proof that you can have plenty of fun, plenty of interaction, world building and even playsets in any scale.

Thanks so kindly for asking me - I think I speak for a lot of fans that we would simply want to know if there are plans for a TVC-style Indiana Jones action figure line that builds out the world of his adventures. It's clearly the scale for that and the heritage of the entire line. I then would follow up with the easy vehicle choices like the sidecar (and single) motorcycles from Last Crusade, Indy's horses from Raiders and TLC, the Ark truck from Raiders, and as maybe a HasLab or Pulse exclusive, the big wing plane from Raiders. I also think playsets are such a layup here - they could redo the "Streets Of Cairo" with the baskets, fruit cart, Monkey Man pack-in figure and such, a HasLab Well Of Souls with vac-metal Ark of the Covenant, redo of the Map Room playset with some fun lights, mine cart playset from Temple of Doom with actual tracks, I mean the possibilities are endless. I hope that isn't too much to ask for, but those kinds of ideas are what I'd hope you guys could pass on.

And thank you, thank you, thank you for being the voice of us here on the site.

I mean no offense to you personally at all, but since when did toy photography become solely a 6" proposition? Have you seen the amazing toy photography of 3.75" SA lines? It's just as compelling, equally as dynamic and really there is no longer any advantage to one scale over another when it comes to photo realness. If anything, I'd argue 6" having the larger real estate makes any mistakes and bad likenesses glare more and I prefer the likenesses almost always of 3.75", my bias aside. There are few 6" likenesses that have blown me away, but they aren't the norm, though I think both scales are getting very consistent lately.

I also remind you that 6" photographers who are doing any kind of "world building" are building that stuff themselves. They haven't purchased those environmental items and instead have to make them on their own, whereas in 3.75" they'd be getting all the good stuff to work with and photograph - the vehicles, the beasts, the playsets and dio pieces, etc. I don't mean that 6" can't be good for anything (and I don't think I stated that), I mean it's not good for this particular line and franchise. Indy deserves to have a full breadth of a line - just my two cents.

You implied that (these) 6Inch figures can just stand on a shelf and look pretty, but whatever. What confuses me a bit is the "all good stuff in terms of environmental items" part. I just don't see it - at least in terms of playsets. Playsets usually consists of a wall - maybe two and sometimes an action feature, which is still pretty barebones in my mind? The only good playset I experienced as a Kid was the Bridge of the Enterprise D - and even that was undersized. Hell, engineering was half a wall and a tiny warp core. You were better off just building your own stuff.

Haslab aside, there doesn't seem to be that much evolution here. The Star Wars Navarro Cantina is still just a wall and a table (and cardboard piece?). That's not that hard to build yourself. Even the Rebel Fleet corridor is only halfway there, so you have to buy two (I build the entire Ghost for less), it still lacks a roof and if you are unlucky, the plastic is warped.

I just don't see that much of an advantage or disatvantage here, especially when it comes to Indy. Horses and motor cycles should still be possible for six inch scale and considering that Indy is more the "Out there in the wilderness" type, the lack of Playsets aren't that crushing to me.
