Hasbro's New Indiana Jones Figures - What Can We Expect To See?!?

by Jay Cochran
January 31, 2022
Last week Hasbro officially announced that they had extended their licensing deal with LucasFilm and Disney to do action figures based on the Indiana Jones franchise. Now this really shouldn't come as a big surprise for anyone knowing how close Hasbro and LucasFilm have been with Star Wars over the years. Not to mention the last time we saw Indy figures as mass retail was back around 2008 which were figures also released by Hasbro. These were released in conjunction with the last movie Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Back then Hasbro did a mix of figures based on the original movies and the new one in 3.75" scale.

Now we have another Indy movie coming in 2023, currently slated for a June release and so it makes perfect sense there would be another action figure tie-in headed up by Hasbro. So what exactly can we expect to see from Hasbro this time around? While Hasbro's press release last week was light on details, I have done some checking of my own and I can tell you we can expect a similar type of release as last time were we will see a mix of figures based on the original movies as well as the new one. The BIG difference from 2008 and now is the scale of the figures. The primary focus this time would appear to be 6" figures. I have not seen anything for the smaller 3.75" scale as of yet. This is just speculation on my part, but if we see any new 3.75" figures from Hasbro my guess is they would end up being released as some kind of store exclusive.

As for the 6" figures. Those will be general mass retail releases though we will probably see a store exclusive here and there as well. I don't have any specific case assortments to share with you but indications suggests we should start off with a strong showing of figures based on the classic movies and then as we get closer to the new movies release we will see figures based on it. The 6" Indy figures should be in keeping with other 6" lines from Hasbro like Marvel Legends, Star Wars Black Series, G.I. Joe Classified, Power Rangers Lightning Collection and Ghostbusters Plasma Series.

Again just speculation on my part but I could totally see Hasbro doing some kind of 6" Han Solo/Indy (Harrison Ford) 2-pack. When more details become available we will be sure to pass it on to you and of course until Hasbro officially confirms any of these we will treat this as RUMOR, but if you have always wanted Indy figures to go with your Marvel Legends, Black Series or GIJoe Classified, I would say you should soon be getting your wish.

Ah, thats good news. I didnt actually attend the SW panel so I had no idea Wicket was announced. Im used to just walking to the Hasbro booth an hour after the panel and figuring out what was revealed based on what was added to the display case but I guess with this new pipeline system that no longer works lol.

The catch with Indy is we have to expect that the majority of figures (especially at first) will probably be based on the new film. So even though there arent a ton of figures in that franchise it could still take awhile to get to the ones we want.

Do we know that Wicket and the Ewoks are coming? I dont recall hearing that. One would hope those might at the very least be in a ROTJ anniversary set but given how Hasbro has been so heavy on rereleases and repaints these past few years that anniversary set most likely will be rerelease focused thus just stuff like rereleases of Jedi Luke, Endor Han, Endor Leia, Palace/Skiff Boba, Emperor, Vader etcall things weve already gotten multiple times only this time on a retro style card back. That seems to be what Hasbro has been doing more often than not.

wicket is a no-brainer, super easy repaint since they already released teebo.

as for indy, how many figures do u guys honestly think are coming? i get ghostbusters vibes thinking about this line. like we'll get an indy 5 indy and raiders indy and maybe a pulse or con exclusive father/son last crusade set. itll be really cool if this line goes way deeper but idk

Wicket is smaller than Teebo, so he'd better not be a repaint.No clue how deep the Indiana Jones line is going to go, but again, as InspectorZartan had speculated, if the line is run like the Black Series, and it likely will be, it will focus heavily on the newest movie with a sprinkling of classic characters. I would also expect to see at least Indy from Raiders, TOD, Last Crusade, and Crystal Skull (along with Indy from Part 5), as the Black Series model clearly dictates releasing Luke Skywalker figures in every single look he's ever had in Star Wars.

Remember in 2019 when Hasbro ran a fan poll for ESB Black Series figures, Snowspeeder Wedge, Lobot, and the Surgical Droid were all leading, then the poll closed and Hasbro quickly announced that Dagobah Luke was the winner, complete with a render they coincidentally had ready to go, and years later we still have no sign of the runners up? Wicket, we at least know is on the way.At least there are fewer characters in the Indiana Jones franchise, so I would hope that would mean we wouldn't have to wait forever on Katanga and Kazin. Then again, we probably would.
