I have been wondering if you are going to produce a Rene
Belloq 12-inch figure wearing the Jewish High Priest robes that
he wears when they open the Ark of the Covenant at the end of
Raiders of the Lost Ark?
We are currently evaluating more 12-inch Indiana Jones figure
development, but our focus is really on Temple of Doom
After the release of the Indiana Jones Golden Idol, will
the Crystal Skull or Holy Grail prop replicas be a possibility?
Yes, we’re VERY interested in creating Grail and Skull prop
Sideshow used to be the company for female figures with
your Buffy and James Bond lines (you made them look good without
being hypersexual). Thus I am sorely disappointed that Marion
Ravenwood has not shown up in the Indiana Jones line. Could you
explain what prompted the apparent decision to not pursue a major
character like her when she appears to be in high demand among
Fair question. We’ve fallen out of love with our
old female body and delayed development on new female 12-inch
figures until we sort out an update to the base body or a new
body entirely. Things are still cooking at Sideshow HQ, and we’ll
reopen the doors to female dev soon.
I LOVE the Premium Format Crystal Skull Indy.
Trevor did another amazing job on the face sculpt. I might even
prefer it over my PF Raiders Indy, but time will tell. Is Trevor
working on any sculpts for the other two Indy movies in the PF
format? It’d be great to add to these “bookends”.
Yes! Trevor recently completed the Indiana Jones
from Temple of Doom, and we’re working on the prototype
I’m so excited to have placed my order for the
1:1 Raiders of the Lost Ark Fertility Idol. What’s
next for the 1:1 Indiana Jones relic line? I’d love to see
the Crystal Skull (I have your small one that came with the DVD
set), the head piece to the Staff of Ra, the eye of the Peacock
diamond from the beginning of Temple of Doom, a Sankara
Stone (or all 3), the Cross of Coronado and the Holy Grail.
Several of the props you mention are in the works and even another
that you didn’t mention. Stay tuned!
With German Indy and Henry Sr. shipping, can we get a
hint of what Indiana Jones 1/6 Figures are coming in the new year?
There will be a bit of a break between the shipment of
KOTCS Indy and the announcement of our next Indiana Jones
12-inch figure. We’re looking hard at designs from Temple
of Doom for the next releases.
I have to tell you, that the Indiana Jones vs. Mola Ram
diorama is awesome!!! You said that this is the first from the
freshly launched IJ diorama series, so what about the next one?
Is it in the works? can you give us some hints ? e.g.: from which
installment did you choose? I think the scene, when Indy cures
his father with the grail would be great!!
Duly noted! We have not yet selected the next Indiana Jones diorama,
but there are several GOOD designs on the table! Stay tuned!
I was wondering if you were going to sell the Indiana
Jones Life-Size Bag separate from the Indiana Jones VS Mola Ram
Polystone Diorama? I love the bag and want one very badly!
We will not be offering the bag separately from the Diorama, but
we will share your interest with Sideshow creative!
I love the Indiana Jones line, all of it…1/6, 1/4,
props…all of it. I have purchased every item made for it.
Are you going to continue the 1/6 scale line with more figures
from the series, or is KOTCS Indy the last of the Mohicans?
Also, if it’s not dead, would Sideshow consider the Hot
Toys DX route and include a different outfit change with a figure?
We do have plans to continue the line, but we don’t have
a firm timeframe to share with you. A deluxe Indy could be very
Are there any plans to have a Willie Scott figure for
the Indiana Jones line, in any format?
Our Creative Director, Tom Gilliland, has a real soft spot for
Willie Scott. It’s a safe bet that she’ll appear in
Concerning the Indiana Jones license, does Sideshow also
hold the rights to developing characters from the Young Indiana
We’re not certain, but we still have a lot of ground to
cover from the films before we dip into the Young Indy material.
Ok, you guys really have me freaked out after prior rounds
of ‘Ask Sideshow’ questions. Indy fans were told there
would be “a pause in the Indiana Jones 12-inch line after
Henry Jones” and that Sideshow was “in the midst of
evaluating TOD characters.” The Indy freaks require clarification….
Does this mean, in any way, that the 1/6 line is in jeopardy?
I’m very (VERY) disappointed by the news that the Indy 1:6
line is on “pause”. Can you clarify what that means?
Does that mean that there will simply be a long wait before the
next announcement but that there IS a definite announcement coming,
or does that mean that there is no new figure to be announced
in the foreseeable future? I have all the figures from the line
so far, and it was the Indy line that got me into collecting 1:6
figures in the first place. So I would be incredibly disappointed
if the Indy 1:6 line was indeed dead, like many of us fear.
Have you stopped work on the Indy 1:6 line to re-assess whether
it is still viable? I know you intend to continue the license
with dioramas and Premium Formats. But many of us are only interested
in the 1:6 line and were hoping to at least get one or two figures
(and personally, at least one Indiana Jones figure) from each
movie. We all know what happens when a line is put “on hold”,
and “pause” seems like the same thing. What would
have to happen for you guys to continue with the line? Please
I’m sure you’re getting swamped with this question,
but I thought I’d add mine to the pile … What’s
the status of the Indiana Jones 1/6th line? Just hoping for some
clarification. A few weeks back you mentioned that the line was
“paused.” A lot of collectors then leapt to the immediate
conclusion that the line is struggling badly and is therefore
headed inevitably toward being axed. But I read the “paused”
announcement differently. After re-reading it a few times, it
seemed to me you guys were announcing a GOOD thing — that
you were pausing to consult with Hot Toys so you could figure
out how to do shirtless figures. NOT that you were gearing up
to pull the plug on a struggling line. Could you please clarify?
As a big lover of the 1/6th Indy line, I’m REALLY hoping
I’ll need to buy a few more Detolfs in 2010 for a growing
Indy 1/6th collection!
Great questions, all of you. The pause is indeed to give
us the opportunity to evaluate our future plans for 12-inch Indy,
including diorama type environment pieces. In the meantime, our
development teams have been working hard on the 1:6 Star Wars
and GI Joe lines, and we will redirect their efforts
to Indiana Jones in due order. From here out, we’re most
likely to develop ‘bursts’ of Indiana Jones 12-inch
figures, ie a Temple of Doom subset, then onto other
I’m a huge Indy fan and have all the Indy items
you’ve put out so far, keep up the great work! One question…
I’ve noticed the Indy 12-inch line is “smaller”
in proportion to your Star Wars line, as well as the
New Line House of Horrors line. In fact, your Indy is
“shorter” than your Han Solo! Was the reason for this
so the Indy line would work with other 12-inch WWII era military
lines like Dragon, G.I.Joe, etc? Or was there a different reason
for the different “scale” of the Indy Line?
When we launched Indiana Jones, we also launched the
new Pro Body, which ended up a bit smaller than ideal. We’ve
since added body parts to the Pro platform allowing additional
height, arm, shoulder, and butt configurations – and future
Indiana Jones figures will benefit from these advances (and potentially
I love the Indy vs. Mola Ram diorama. Please Sideshow,
give us an Indy & Marion Well of Souls and Indy with Henry
Sr. before all is said and done. I could go on, but these would
be very iconic.
Certainly, we’ll share your wish list with the creative
Will the Indiana Jones 1:6 environment pieces continue?
I am really hoping we’ll get a Map Room Indy with polystone
Map Room environment. What is the possibility of this happening?
Yes, most likely on a basis paired with future 12-inch Indiana
Jones offerings. We can’t promise the map room as a certainty,
but it’s high on our list too.
Where does the Indy 1/6th ‘paused’ announcement
leave us for the 1/6th KOTC Indy? Will we still see this
We hope that you have him in hand as you read this!
