Unfortunately, Joe fans, it sounds like the GI Joe brand is tightening up a little in 2011. The official word is that the line will be more “focused” – my personal take on this is that the Pursuit of Cobra lineup didn’t revive the line enough after the the Rise of Cobra movie figures took a beating at retail.
There is good news on the horizon, though. The GI Joe Renegades show on the Hub has launched, and I think Hasbro has made a good decision that the Renegades figures, which will ship this fall as part of the main line with art from the show to distinguish it, are intended to fit in with the rest of the line. Renegades figures will have deco that matches the show’s color palette, but will leverage the existing Joe tooling with some new Renegades parts.

We got a glimpse of Indiana Jones during Hot Toys’s 10th anniversary show in Tokyo. Now that the press pics are out, I’m getting more and more psyched. I think the head sculpt could use a little more tweaking but this is shaping up really well.
You can see more pics in the Indiana Jones – Raiders of the Lost Ark album.

As promised in their Indiana Jones tease from about 10 days ago, here’s the Hot Toys reveal of the Raiders of the Lost Ark MMS. For the alternate costume, it’s his costume from the map room. Tons of accessories, and I think it’s pretty cool they’ve got the idol and bag of sand in there!

Wow. This is great timing for this announcement. With Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in heavy cable rotation right now, I’ve been jonesing (honestly, no pun intended) for some Indy toys. With the DX designation, I think it means we’ll be getting a PERS (parallel eyeball rolling system) version of Indy, with a ton of accessories too.
DX also usually means multiple outfits – I wonder if we’ll see an Egyptian or Nazi outfit.
Throw me the idol! I’ll throw you the whip!
