Cool Indy stuff!

At long last the fourth (and I’m guessing final?) Indiana Jones movie – Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – is coming this summer. I’m already readying my Fedora and oiling my whip. There’s some very cool merch coming out to tie in with the film, including some beautifully detailed statues:

And I spotted my colleague sticking up some (rather more affordable to the pocket money) action figures. Why weren’t there Indy action figures when I was a kid? Sure we had the original Star Wars figures (and the even better Micronauts, which were more posable, with more joints, plus you could take them apart, always a plus for a kid) but no Indy figures. I may have to get a couple of these to keep the Doctor Who and Captain Scarlet figures on my desk company. What do you mean I’m too old for toys? Cobblers to that, you’re never too old for toys! In fact one of the best things about being grown up is being able to buy toys when you want!
