Temple of Doom review at!

The Indiana Jones action figure line is dead. In four months it went from being the next Star Wars to the last Narnia. The boards are alive with blame. Wal-Mart ordered too much. Hasbro used bad factories. Lucas wanted too much Mutt. Kids hate old guys.

I don't know what went wrong and as sad as I am I can't continue to get Indy characters for years to come, I'm grateful for what I got. And I'm really grateful I managed to snag the line from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Not only does it complete all four films in the franchise, it's also has the best figures ever done for it.

Take a look!

Man, Jon. I feel your pain. I was late in getting heavy into the Indy line, and the TOD wave came and went right under my news. What a bummer! I suppose I gotta hit ebay, now. It is sad, especially given just how expansive and detailed the line was intended to become.
