This puzzled me when I saw it. I did not know before that Hasbro had made Indiana Jones figures, particularly as the franchise seemed a little tired. What puzzled me more was whether people would actually part with money to buy playsets from the films.
This particular playset sees Indiana attempting to grab his prize from the temple. You might remember the scene, where he has to drop his bag onto the stone and grab the artifact before the place crumbles to bits. Then there is that infamous shot of Harrison Ford being chased by a huge boulder as he frantically escapes. This mini playset attempts to recapture some of the magic from that scene. Indiana is well designed, with beautiful colour work to his costume. The jawline looks enough like Ford and he has an heroic pose which can be altered by adjusting his limbs. Great detailing on his jacket and belt area make it a must-see.
He comes with a section of the temple, the stony section where he must deposit his bag and rescue his prized gold. There is a snap-shut feature on the temple, which can go off if Indiana does not grab the prize properly. Quite a nice little action, though I am not sure it warrants long term play value. A few snap-shuts and the novelty could wear off!
Indy comes with his pistol and trusty whip, both of which he can grip in either hand. The price of this playset is just under the ten pound mark. For Jones enthusiasts it would be a lovely display piece, though I am not sure a casual younger buyer would see the appeal in it. Worth getting for the action figure of Ford though, as he looks macho and hunky and rugged!
Racing against his chief nemesis, Rene Belloq, to discover a coveted artifact, Indiana Jones enters an ancient Chachapoyan temple in the jungles of Peru. Inside, he solves a series of deady riddles while advancing on his prize, ultimately triggering the stone temples collapse as he narrowly escapes with the golden idol! Take Indiana Jones on an adventure-filled quest that you create! This articulated action figure is based on the legendary character as he appears in the original Indiana Jones film, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark , and comes with a pistol and his signature whip!! Pose the golden idol in the temple trap playset and if you make a wrong move, watch out! The trap snaps shut!
