Last Crusade Jacketless Indy
It's been too long since a watch cause I can't picture this off the top of my head. Immediately I imagine a jacket and tie variant.
Indy doesn’t appear jacketless in Last Crusade. He wears a few other outfits, but not the standard gear without the jacket.

Here's a variant never attempted:

Packed with a black uniform Vogel?
He had better come that way. If we’re getting that version of Indy, then I’m going to need a German officer for him to throw out of the zeppelin.
And where's Lord Clarence MacDonald?!

Four pack. Toss in Mickey Mouse, because…. Reasons.

Last Crusade was my favorite as a kid. I need Indy, Elsa, Henry & Young Indy.

Odd, I thought he was at points, but I may have just been thinking of this:

Yes Grail Knight is a must and I’ll definitely buy multiples depending upon how good it looks.
Atleast 3,maybe more.

Okay! Awesome! So we're definitely getting a Black Series-style line for Indy, either a wave per movie or all mixed, like the black series line. We're also (probably) getting a 5" basic line for kids with minimal articulation, minimal paint, but maybe some cool accessories for kids, based on Indy 5. I mean this is the Hasbro standard right now, although this could change I guess. There'll probably be a 12" basic line too, with even less articulation and very stilted sculpts. There will be some sort of whip roleplay toy for kids, and I wouldn't put it past them to release a replica version for adults too, although how do you make it non-functional as a weapon is beyond me. They could maybe make some other artifact replicas too, but that's a bit more far-fetched.

I just need a good Indy to hang out with Dr. Aphra. They may run into Han on an adventure.

How about a Mission Fleet line? That would be a great way to get some cool play sets. Also at that scale the could easily make an air-up Zeppelin like the old TMNT blimp.

And vehicles! The ark chase scene recreated! There could be a few cool things to come out of it, nice idea!

I would be down for Mission Fleet Indy. Even though I'm an old-school 3.75in fan, I would go with this and a 6-inch line for the sake of something new...and for fear that vehicles and playsets wont be made any other way.

I really hope the fact that they haven’t done the Mission Fleet style for any of their other lines means they won’t for Indy either. It’s obvious they’ll do 6”, but he also deserves a proper 4” line on par with TVC. Hasbro has come so far in the past 15 years. If they did all 3 scales, I’d ecstatically buy them all. But if it’s between 2.5” and 4”, I have to pull for 4”.

I collected the 2008 line and enjoyed it, but I do not see 4" figures in the cards, at least not beyond a few special releases. The Vintage Collection has been on life support for years, I don't see them investing in two collector-targeted scales. Hasbro has been pretty up front about focusing on the Black Series and their reasoning, It's just the massive legacy of 4" Star Wars that has kept them from pulling the plug entirely. Indiana Jones doesn't have that legacy of cultural attachment to a specific scale and style. I will count myself lucky if we get a few good Indy variations, and major villains and supporting characters. I dare to hope for Belloq, Toht, Mola Ram, Henry Jones Sr, and Marion. A German Mechanic and Sallah would put me over the moon.

The Vintage Collection isn’t on life support. The newly sculpted figures are incredible and frequently sell out their preorders. Most store exclusives sell out their preorders. They’ve been doing really nice work with vehicles and playsets, and I have to hope they’d want to do the same for Indy.

Not for anything, but Indy’s first line was 1/18 and it’s largest line was 1/18. So while it doesn’t have as massive a legacy, it does have precedent.

I just don’t see Hasbro only putting everything into a $25+ 6” line. They’re gonna want some $15 and lower price points out there.

as much as I would like a whole Black Series type wave/waves for Indy, I honestly wouldn't mind reissued/improved 3 3/4" with the face print/photo real on them.

as long as I get Indy from Temple of Doom, Marion (in her Cairo or white dress) and Willie in her sacrificial gown, i'll be happy.
