The program guide may say Star Wars day, but the man with the hat is making a big splash at Comic-Con. As part of today’s Hasbro presentation. Created by the same team responsible for the Star Wars line of toys and figures, Hasbro’s Indiana Jones toyline will celebrate all four Indy movies. On display at their booth was just a taste of the classic assortments, with 3 3/4″ figures and the “Galactic Heroes”-style cutesified pairs for fans of all ages.
Two packs of the Adventure Heroes collection include Indy and the German Mechanic, Indy and the Cairo Swordsman, Belloq and the spirit of the Ark (God’s wrath has never been sooooo cute!) and Sallah and a Mummy. On display at the Hasbro booth is a market place Marion with monkey sidekick. Of the 3 3/4″ collection, Hasbro’s floor display showcases Indy, Belloq and Sallah, while some of images shown during the presentation also included the Cairo Swordsman, the Monkeyman, and marketplace Marion Ravenwood complete with frying pan. Each figure comes with an ‘artifact’ (like the headpiece to the staff of Ra or the golden fertility idol of the Chachapoyan warriors) as an extra collectibel. Look for them in 2008.
