Indiana Jones Q&A With Hasbro Round #6
Indiana Jones: Jay Cochran - 2008.09.05
The folks who work on the new Indiana Jones toy line at Hasbro have agreed to do a regular Q&A session with us here at TNI regarding their new toy line hitting shelves now.


TNI: I was wondering if there is any chance of a deluxe pack, vehicle, or even an exclusive of Indy and Dr. Henry Jones with the motorcycle and sidecar that was in The Last Crusade? Thanks. Question by TNI reader ScarletSpider88.

Hasbro: Right now, it looks unlikely that we'll get to that undoubtedly cool version.


TNI: Are there any plans to do an 'Unleashed' line of Indiana Jones figures? Question by TNI reader Aman0327.

Hasbro: There are no plans for an Unleashed IJ line.


TNI: I am pleased with the Indy figures. Hell, I am probably as old as the sculpter are if not older. My question: Out of the Indy 3 3/4 inch line which figure would the team say is their peach "Best one". Please don't kill the line before the wave in 2009. Hasbro has put my favorites figures in that wave. Question by TNI reader Chopsooie.

Hasbro: We hope to get to the 2009 wave, but so much depends on the performance of the line through the holidays. As for our favorite? It would be just about every figure from the Temple of Doom wave..they really are some of our best work.


If you would like to ask a question of this team, head over to our FORUMS and post it. We may use it in a our next Q&A which will take place on September 26.

The problem we have is that unlike the other Hasbro brands at the moment, like Star Wars or Transformers is Indy a small line and dependant on success of the movie. If the line had come out earlier, say in the 90s, we'd have done well weith them because the movies were still riding high on the s... read more

To me, Hasbro marketed Indiana Jones like they marketed Star Wars or Transformers. Give it everything out of the gate. That plan appears to have backfired. I definitely don't agree that Hasbro doesn't know how to market to collectors: look at the G.I. Joe 25th anniv. Does anyone really... read more

This is heavilly a store's fault. Lets look at it this way. After the hype for KOTCS at the theatre, TRU thinks "great, a nice little earner here" so orders 3000 figures from each wave. Kids and collectors want the stuff and it does well, but only manages to move 1000 figures from e... read more

There's a reason I said "arguably" on the Transformers thing. I think they're action figures. Some other folks don't.

@Jmacq1 Mostly, the limitations are Hasbro's limited imagination, over-pricing, and inability to create a decent figure. I considered getting some of the 12 inch figures, but, they were truly uninspiring (imo) and offered nothing worth collecting. So, that leaves me with either collecting... read more
