Hasbro's |STAR WARS INDIANA JONES Q&A: The Answers!
As you may have notice, we're HUGE Indiana Jones fans here at Cool Toy Review, and we've been builidng that audience more and more with each week as we get closer to the debut of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. We've just opened a brand-new Indiana Jones section of our forums, where collectors can talk about all the merchandise, both old and new. But we're not done yet!
As part of Hasbro's bi-weekly Star Wars Q&A session over at Rebelscum, we've been allowed to pass on 3 of your burning Indiana Jones questions! So check out our inaugural edition, because we've got the answers for you.
Cool Toy Review: Do you plan to complete the vintage line of Indiana Jones figures? Meaning, can we hope for modern versions of Toht, German Mechanic, Marion in dress, Indy in German uniform, and Belloq in white suit?
Hasbro: As the IJ line continues on, we defintely have plans for versions of all of those iconic supporting characters in the line. At least three of those are planned for early 2009.
Cool Toy Review: With all the attention on recent releases of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles DVDs, will there be any characters from this TV series in action figure form?
Hasbro: Not specifically. We have been looking at Young Indy ourselves (and reading the comics too for additional inspiration), but with all the movie figures we have been focusing on we just haven't fit them in yet.
Cool Toy Review: At Toy Fair, it was hinted at the possibility of another playset...the Well of the Souls...which sounds like a great idea, BTW... Would you consider making is as a series of smaller playset environments like the current deluxe line so that they can be placed together to create the larger scene?
Hasbro: The current Deluxe scenes can be put together to connect, and we are exploring some additional concepts for more in this vein. However, these are defintely very tough to develop (both from a manpower and tooling standpoint), so whether we do more willd epend in large part on how these perform. We're hopeful though that we have found a great way to really capture some of that scenic excitement of Indy with these (and future) sets.
