Hasbro clearly thought because it's a Lucasfilm property that the toyline would enjoy that same success as Star Wars. what other reason could be for the massive flood of product to hit the shelves? the only other line that gets that amount of product is Star Wars. how wrong they were. Indiana Jones may be popular, but it was never a big action figure seller, and it's popularity is the movies and just never jumped over to the merchandising side.

Mutt Williams is sure warming the pegs.
unless they stick a Transformers 2 movie logo on the cards... i guess it will sell.....especially for Shia fans. and Megan Fox fans alike.

This, sadly, doesn't surprise me. I just hope I can eventually find a Dr. Henry Jones. I can live without Elsa, Vogel, or Young Indy, but I gotta have Henry Sr.!

I hope I can find a Henry Jones and an Elsa.
I wish they would have made the Temple of Doom figures. Would loved to have had a Shortround figure.

What about the Colonel Dovchenkos? Aside from the arms that don't move very well, I think he works pretty well aside Red Star. I also considered getting the German motorcyclist but couldn't see myself buying it at $11.00.

Hasbro comes pretty close to Mattel's stupidity on the He-Man line back in early 2000's.
The Shia voodoo that Hollywood, Lucas and Spielberg seemed to of enchanted Hasbro with actually have them saying that Mutt is their second highest selling figure...um WHAT? Are they selling like 100 of Indy a day and like 2 Mutts and 1 of everyone else?
Also the amazingly brain-dead move of including figures that are shelf warmers in cases of new figures-therefore cutting down on the new figures on the pegs just prove just because you may get a degree in something (distribution,sales, and marketing in this case) that doesn't mean you know what your doing or that Joe Blow on the corner wouldn't of done a better job with this line.
Really a shame. I figured the line had maybe two years in it, that was about it. But not even a full year is pathetic.
