Speed Racer Pops figure from the 90s came with a tool chest and pneumatic impact wrench. I have two just for the accessories. 8)

There are doll house tool kits to get a wrench.

So I'm curious, has anyone started scouring eBay for those old Plan B WWII figures? I don't think I'm into Indy enough to spend the money, but if I were I'd be all over those.

I've got the Plan B Rex Ganon figure, and while I love him I feel he looks too outdated compared to any 6" figure on the market today.

They are between 20 and 40 plus shipping right now.



I had a horrible thought last night.

What if the Indy Figures are like the Ghostbusters and don't scale properly with the rest of Hasbro's "6 inch" figures?

Not that I'd cancel my orders.

Wish those figures were still plentiful. :drool:

Guess there is always Star Wars Black Series Imperials. Need some Helmets, MP-40s and MG-42s.

Edit: Forgot the STG-44 and Doctor Doom already provided the Luger.

Indy is going to be too small to scale with any of Hasbro’s line besides Star Wars. On the back of his packaging, it measures him at 6.3”.

My bigger concern would be that these don't sell well and that the rest of the line gets cancelled after the new movie.

Luckily they've stated the line is 25 figures, so that's a wave from each movie.

Hopefully they don't screw up the character and outfit selection.


I'm also hoping they get the Temple of Doom wave out before the new movie wave.

That’s not too bad. I didn’t have my Joes to check their scale, but putting a Black Series Han (who’s roughly 6 1/4”) near comic Marvel Legends makes Han look like a short teenager. I think MCU figures trend smaller though, right?

I don't think MCU runs small now.

I do know the Rescue Captain America from the Cap Peggy Carter two pack was too tall compared to the prior versions of Chris Evans.

If anything this Indy will be a great source for accessories. Plus need to build the Ark.

It sucks that the Jameson carded figure is $50. Need him for the double jointed taupe pants and possibly the brown shoes if Indy's can't be reused.

The Stan Lee pants are a bit to gray. I think.

Two choices for double jointed elbow jacket arms.

Either the MCU 20th anniversary Wolverine with some modification or the Peter Parker but then stuck with knit cuffs.

The thing is Indy would then fit with Marvel Legends and Joes.... just not his own line. :lol:

This is the star wars team, not the marvel or ghostbusters team. So the figures are probably gonna scale with star wars, which run shorter than marvel or gi joe figures. I think that's okay, since marvel legends are too tall, black series are the more accurate 1/12 size.

It kind of makes me mad that the Ghostbuster line was made smaller than ML, Black and Joes. It's the one series that seem really out of scale (No counting Transformers RED, which seems to be the same size as GB). I hope Indie line is corrected so they at least match with Star Wars Black.

I’m excited for the 6” Indy figures and the Retro Kenner style. What really has my mind going is the Mission Fleet style Indy line. I have Mission Fleet Obi-Wan testing out a few Indy accessories currently!Image
