Hasbro's INDIANA JONES Q&A: The Answers!|
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 the latest scoop we've got for you this session.
Cool Toy Review: Checking out the SDCC exclusive Cobra Commander for G.I. Joe, the body looks suspiciously like the outfit worn by Donovan at the end of The Last Crusade. Is this in fact a sneak peek at this potential figure?
Hasbro: Sharp, sharp observation! Indeed it is, indeed it is. We have negotiated the first three way figure trade in the history of toy lines, loaning Donovan's body to the GI Joe team, who sent the Crystal Ball tooling to Star Wars to become Talon Karrde, and who in turn sent real Stormtroopers to Indy to replace the bumbling German ones. OK, we kid about the last two. Anyway - great catch!
Cool Toy Review: Will the hidden relics hidden inside the crates continue on into 2009? We love the added element of both the relic itself, and the crate it comes in is a nice way to build up Area 51 scenes.
Hasbro: The relics will end with Wave 4 this year, and will be replaced by figure bases for all of the new figures in 2009.
Cool Toy Review: For the Ultra Titanium Series fans: will Indy take a risk on die-cast vehicles in this scale?
Hasbro: We will not be developing any Ultra vehicles for IJ. We suspect that the IJ line will not have quite as many followers as the pretty expansive Star Wars Titanium line, who in turn were not enough to sustain the very expensive Ultra line. So we'll just concentrate on the main assortment.
