NEW INDIANA JONES TOYS!

I was chilling out at the Broadway Sacramento Target and came across these great new Indiana Jones toys. I literally came across them, so I apologize in advance for the bad picture quality. Anyway, it's nice to see such a great array of Jones toys that cover all 4 movies, not just the most current one. You can see a larger blurrier version of each picture if you click it. First up we have some pretty cool Barbie sized figures that retail for about $19.99. There's 2 different Indys, the famous Cairo Swordsman, and the Shia LeBouf figure, which will be known as "75% off" in a couple months. The talking Indy one is kind of neat, but he looks more like a constipated David Duchovny, than Harrison Ford. And you can get the Cairo Swordsman to have a totally politically incorrect terrorist figure for your vintage GI Joe collection now.

Here's the smaller "Star Wars" scale figures of Belloq and that badass Swordsman guy that can't parry bullets.

Not only can you use Indiana Jones to really confuse your Chewbacca figure now, but you can start your long awaited Animal House action figure set with the Karen Allen figure. She's got a rather ugly sculpt to her face, unfortunately. But at least she comes with a frying pan. If the company was a bit more ballsy, they should have had her come with a pile of empty shot glasses.

Here's Indiana Jones and his horse. It kind of looks like he's shoving his whip into the horse's ass, from this angle. This must be from a secret Tijuana adventure that was cut from the first film.

Hey...that skull on the left looks just like Albert Molina.

This is my favorite of the miniature playsets. The mini-idol is particularly cool. I bet you could just pull the idol out and sell it on eBay to stupid hipsters for $30.

This line of Smurf-sized characters are super cool, and are the same scale as Hasbro's Marvel mini figures.

And what summer blockbuster is complete without a new Mr. Potatohead with a ridiculous pun?
