By the way, are all parts on it golden? Some more pics on it would be nice as soon as your camera is recharged!

Yes ... there are quite a few gold elements in the Ark and the surround of the SW heiroglyphics are gold too.

Thanks, Big Pete!

That column on the left is exactly the same as one of the ones we got with an Adventurer set except it has a ruined look. In fact, I think all of the hieroglyphs are from an old set before. That's pretty cool  *sweet*

OK I azm a tad disappointed with the fact that Marion has only white legs  :-/  OK its modding Marion time asap as I'll get that set  :-P

That Ark is a beauty in gold like that  *wub*  I was afraid of having it dark tan  ;-)

Tks for a great review !!

This set is such a must buy for me.  *wub* Marion is beautiful and the tomb is very smartly designed.  I am annoyed though that it seems the classic skellies are "dead". The new arms don't even look vagually bone like.  :-/

Thanks for the great review!  *sweet*

4 separate strips.  I really think they're meant to go above the large panels on the 1 x 8 bricks.

It's dark translucent blue.

Nice Find! reat Review, however I've noticed Lego tends to miss steps in their instructions regarding the stickers. For instance, in the Police Station, not the 2008 one but the one before(7237), has a dark gray sticker with tally marks counting 38 days. The instructions give not one clue as to where to put this sticker, but on the pics on the back of the box, there is a shot of the bandit breaking the ail cell and escaping, oyu can clearly see where this sticker is supposed to go (on the flat side of a 2x3 slope). So, if you ever have left-over stickers, don't trash em' check the pics on the back of your box.  *y*

trust me, I've scoured the instructions and the box (front & back) for any sign of these stickers and there's nothing.

Well lego can screw up ocassionally. Anyway, just put them somewhere, like behind the tomb walls (the ones that collapse) or put them in a spares box.

they're tucked into the manual

You could use an islander, from the pirates line. Their hair is pretty similair to the Hovito's. Plus, they look like that-ish in the trailer. Only problem is that the Hovitos have a darker skin color, and in this case they would be brighter, different nontheless.

By the way, I saw on your other thread that you had left over spider stickers. Maybe they are meant to be pasted on Indy and Satipo's backs?  :-D

Thanks for the review!  *y*
What I like about the set:
-Carrot torch
-10 snakes
-Indy
-New "scared" face
-Ark
-SW stickers! Do you think they needed the SW license for that?
-Ruined Adventurers pillars
What I don't like:
-Stickers
-New skeleton, not old
-Not as "complete" as the Truck and Bike chase - they have the key parts; no scenery...the trouble with movie sets is where do you stop? Shouldn't there be a trapdoor? e.t.c... That was the problem with Spiderman, IMHO; look at SW - just vehicles, very few bases, and the ones they do use are complete((ish)...

I think the spare stickers are for MOCs - it could be a new marketing tactic: Free stickers to customise your Lego included! They're useful which ever way you look at it.

Thanks for taking the time to review the set B.P.  I really like the Anubis statues.  Also, as others have mentioned, the SW sticker is rather witty.  Great review!

I think so too! I still don't get peoples' problem with stickers (see my earlier post). Could anyone please give me an answer to that? Oh, and thanks for the arc pics, Big Pete, and thank you, DJ Force, for the info on SW refferences. I gotta go and watch those Indy movies one more time and look for those!
