If they had hip joints the same as the Joes, and maybe a chest joint, I think they may sell a lot better for customs.
Why Hasbro won't go to a unified design is silly to me, since they obviously love reusing parts. You'd think the 25th line would be an indicator to them that you can make the same mold look completely different by just adding parts on top, and mixing and matching arms, or adding in new pieces over time.
The Joes and Indy figures have a lot in common as far as clothing, texture, etc.
I don't know about the neckballs and arms, but it seems that those may be interchangeable... Hasbro could have used the Germans' and Russians' heads for the Joe Greenshirt 5-pack, for example, and given us "new" Joes that weren't previously used in the lines. So long as they're not iconic heads, like Harrison Ford or Shia, for example, it seems like the heads could work very well for "generic" heads.
At least, if the figures were all designed off the same construction, it seems like it would make sense to me.
If you are up for buying an Indy, you can get the same missile launcher/RPG or whatever that the Bazooka Trooper is coming with... I saw it on the shelf the other day. At least the scales are the same.
The Mutt Williams motorcycle looks great with the Dreadknoks. The horse, sorta silly, but hey, Wild Bill maybe?

cant say i care if this line is over, i never liked indiana jones, and i would never support anything hasbro unless i was a huge fan of it, like gi joe, and i often wish joe was done by another company.

I know the figures usually look better in pictures before they are released...but these figures look SO MUCH better in pics than they actually do in the real.
I was excited when i saw the designs. Then I actually saw the figures, and was put off by their shitty paint jobs, and their weird consistency plastic composite bodies.

My question is this: Have they ever been available for purchase from HTS?
I have yet to find them, and I am confident I will NEVER see them in stores given the fact that the other Indiana Jones stuff is clogging the aisles.
My problem is that Temple of Doom is my favorite IJ film second ONLY to Raiders.
I didn't care too much for Last Crusade.
Raiders was the best, but TOD was the darkest.
There is something that I like about dark films.
Same logic applies to Empire Strikes Back vs. Star Wars.

I got the LC wave from HTS a few months ago and have since only seen the wave at my local TRU-3 times. ToD wave will also be coming from HTS, but I missed out on Wille & Temple Guard.
