Superb. I'm not a huge fan of Lego figures but these and the Star Wars ones are great.
Cheers for sharing Mattallica.

I bought that one and the stolen treasure chase or whatever it's called (with the jeep and truck) last weekend. As I started building I was talking to my girlfriend in my best Sean Connery accent and she told me I was warped. smile.gif I'm thinking about going out today to buy the $20 set, and sometime after Christmas I'll get the big set. So much to buy, so little money...

I'm so tempted to buy Lego Indy, but all my dough goes to Minimates. Here's hoping they get around to making a Lego Shortround!


Shortie has a figure in one of the other sets pictured in the instruction booklet, there are sets from each movie so there is a Marion fig too. and shortly sets from the forth coming Crystal skull film.
im tempted to get the truck set i always liked that scene and its a cool looking Duece and a half.

those motorcycles seem a bit big for the lego men, but might be perfect for minimates, any photo would be cool

I was out wrapping up my x-mas shopping of the kids this weekend and happened across the new Indiana Jones Lego sets.

They had four sets including:

A motorcycle w/ sidecar chase fronm Last Crusade that included the Doctors Jones (Indy & Henry Sr.), a checkpoint gate and a badguy on a motorcycle

A truck chase from Raiders of the Lost Ark that included the military truck and staff car

The "Run for your Life there's a big rolling stone ball chasing me" scene from Raiders, which includes (as luck would have it) a big rolling rock ball and the sea plane to fly away in.

The Temple of the Lost Souls set w/ the Ark of the Covenant, Miriam Minifig and plenty of snakes.


These started at about $10 for the motorcycle chase... the biggest ones were probably in the $50 range


Some of the pieces, like altars and statues woul provide good inspiration for some Indy-inspired lego dioramas for minimates.

Check 'em out.

I know I'm going to be getting these regardless, but I wonder if they're worth it.

No, he's right -- not making that one character doomed the line. Doomed, I tell you. The minute we left him out of Series 1 a raven flew through our window. And killed an intern.

Yep, between the kewl license and the 'Mate possibilities, these are on the "must buy" list. Thanks, Mattallica, for sharing those excellent motorcycle pics.
You were too busy buying stuff to get anything for free. -- bhm

So I figured that we have dedicated threads for pretty much everything except LEGO. I thought instead of random threads that a LEGO thread like te Transformers and VideoGame threads would be useful.
Anyway, I thought that anyone who did not know should know that there is a LEGO set out now based off of Star Wars Force Unleashed. It is a ship that I believe may be the SA's ship, but I don't know. It comes with the SA, Battle Damaged Vader, and some person who I don't remember. It was at TRU.
Also, my local Wal Mart had the Battank set marked down to 30 if anyone doesn't have it who wants it.

The "some other person" is Juno Eclipse.

I'm tempted by the Imperial Transport set, now that I see it comes with a Shadow Trooper. It's too bad they didn't vary up the Troopers even more though. Like a Sandtrooper or Scout Trooper instead of one of the white Storm Troopers.

And I'm hoping for an "Imperial Precession" or similar set so I can get the Imperial Guards cheaply and easily. Maybe with a TIE Fighter Pilot, Scout Trooper and Stormtrooper, so you can recreate the Emperor's landing on the second Death Star.

These sets look really neat. I won't buy 'em, though, because I don't have an Indiana Jones minimate!

Still, I like that in the room that holds the Arc of the Covenant... the brick directly above it has the R2-D2 and C-3PO hieroglyph on it. That's pretty funny.
