#7622 has numbered bags as well. I know because I own it. I own them all.

o_O You are a crazy-rabid Indy fan!
And, seeing that you own all the sets and I'm included in 7623, then you own me! Yay X-D ! You also own yourself, various yous  :-D !

I'll tell you what George's problem was when writing this film. He was so preoccupied with whether or not he could…he didn’t stop to think if he should. That’s…that’s chaos.
^Someone on A few scenes in Indy 4

Quote

The moral of Indy is... "Don't get in a swordfight with a Russian chick while hightailing it through the South African jungle while your mom is driving the truck because she will look away from the nonexistent road to criticize your footwork and accidentally cause some oddly bulbous jungle flora to whack you repeatedly right in the junk."
^What some of us learned from Indy 4 (which I did enjoy, I but thought the post above was hilarious)

Quote

Apparently Rachel Dawes was also using cheap parlor tricks to hide her true identity in Batman Begins.
^An explanation as to why a different actress was cast in The Dark Knight.

There are still plenty of sets they could do from Last Crusade and Temple of Doom that wouldn't involve swastikas or be "too evil"...a great Temple of Doom set would involve the rope bridge sequence, Indy, Short Round, Willie Scott, Mola Ram and some Thuggees.  That wouldn't be any more evil or offensive than the first sets in this series...  I think Raiders of the Lost Ark is the best known of the Indiana Jones films, so they went with a Raiders-heavy first assortment.  We'll get more from the other movies later.
what about the tank battle or the plain fight or the grail bit with all the boobie traps or the zeppelin scene instead of a swastika just have an x or +,
or the mine cart race or the plain fight Indi's dad scaring..birds..into the fighter plains, nah forget the last one

I'm sure there'll be more sets of the other films down the line.

The scene with Indy and Elsa in the catacombs would make for a great set. Most of the LEGO parts needed already exist: rats, castle walls, skeletons. Plus, it'd be a nice chance for an alternative Indy figure, instead of the usual brown and beige combination. (Yes I'll keep whining about this until alternative Indy figs actually show up, lol! :-P )

About 7623, though. Awesome set! I'm definitely gonna buy it. Apart from the Hovito's, it's all there. Amazing. I've been looking forward to this ever since that Johnny Thunder movie from LEGO Studio's. Indy! Belloq! Jock! Golden idol! Huge boulder! Snake on a plane! Whooo!
Big fan of licensed themes and collectable minifigures.
Still trying to get a short brickfilm out there at some point...

.. there is a snake for the plane ...

I just noticed, that we get false information in the german description at lego.com.  >:-(
In english it says "Set includes 6" (15cm) long plane with snake inside, just like the scene from the movie!",
whereas the german version says "Das Set enthlt ein 15 cm langes Flugzeug voller Schlangen, genau wie im Film!".
The meaning of "voller Schlangen" in english is "full of snakes".

same here, Yoda... I hate it to wait for these.. But Pete got his in TRU in Portsmouth, and also in England they shouldn't be available earlier than march.. So did you try out TRU or Walmarts in Paris? Could be they also have 'em. I hope a friend of my sister brings me at least the Crusade-set from San Francisco where she is....

And well... to say something about the future of Indy, also SW started really small with Y-Wing vs Tie being the biggest set, if I do remember it right. So I really hope for getting
Raiders: Himalaya Pub, flying Wing, freighter, the submarine
ToD: Shanghai Chase, Ford Airplane, Bridge Scene
Crusade: Motorboat Chase, Airplanes, Tank, Temple playset
but we will see.... :'-)

Well the thing is that Lego France operates on its own  |-/  So basically they decide when sets/line are OK to sell and when  >:-(  I'm sure all the AFOLS like me will have their sets through another channel  ;-)
So I don't think that TRU will have it earlier (and we have no Walmarts in France) but who knows after all !!

I agree with your list here !! All classic scenes that can be easilly made in Lego  8-  I guess its future will be subject to salability  X-D  I'm sure that line will be a big hit and we can only hope for more sets in august/september !!

this looks really cool. We've never had quite this many traps in a JT set. I like the use of upsidedown dinosaurs to make faces. I dont like the idol too much. It doesn't look like lego. I would've preffered something like a minifig head. But hey that's just a minor complaint. Thanks for the review Big Pete.

LASH has this set for $60 USD! Looks like there is another rip-off on our hands!
This set should have only been about $40 or $50 not an insane $60!
First TLC ditches the hovito and adds a skellie >:-( Now the set only has 4 figs!
Now they want to over charge us,Why that is madness!

A catacomb set, with a hottie! I'm in :-D I agree that would be a great set! Just throw in one of those sarcophagus with a new design and perfect!
The other set I would love to see is the "Flying Wing" with Indy, Pilot, Mechanic and a great design plane(perhaps marion in a different outfit?)
So many OT possibilities!!

you mean short round + willie on that boat from the plane in temple of doom? i hope they make more sets from the other 2 films because thinking about it there isnt much to expand on from the IJ sets with only 4 films and a tv series (which ive never seen  :-/ ) it isnt like star wars with comics and alot more other info and fan related things

Actually, if they opened it up to IJ's own Expanded Universe, there have been books, comics, and video games they could use.  So you could have things like the Spear of Destiny, the Search for Atlantis, and other adventures.  There's plenty of stuff for LEGO to do, trust me.

:hmpf_bad:  You're new and everything, of course, but remember... resurrecting can cause problems for some mods. Welcome to the site by the way though!

I bought the set and actually, I was somewhat disappointed. Good figs, but not enough. Where are the Hovitos? The Ugha would have made better Hovitos, for sure. There were few real "mechanisms" other than the temple and the truck and stuff. The design was... well, a nice concept slapped on 4+ pieces with the use of the same sort of pieces... over and over and over and... you get the picture. The plane was neat, I wish the set was still intact though.
