The parts came in one sealed bag containing the smaller parts (pic 1) and the rest were loose (pic 2)

Some really nice parts for my collection include the dark green tiles and panels, some nice tyres, and the reddish brown headlights (12 of them)

The build

Though speedwise not a surprising build, there are a lot of great design points like using the headlights to fix the mudguards to the jeep.

Little help please! Indy showing why you build the minifig first.

Playability: 7/10 Well it does drive around so that counts
Pricing: 9/10 Hey its exclusive, cant complain too much
Design: 10/10 Beautiful design.
Overall: 8.6/10

Overall I was happy to purchase this set. I think it is a great little set with an iconic character recognizable worldwide, though I guess the exclusiveness adds to its appeal. Either way I would have purchased it, adn hope others get the chance to own a cool set.

ISC, this is a very good review.  :wink:
Remember this? " :thumbup: " Yes, it's for you.

I enjoyed reading this review, as it's informative plus good and clear pictures illustration. The ending of multiple Cody attacking Indy is funny. Owning this set, without subscribing to BrickMaster is costly. Well, the jeep design is great and it's a wonderful addition to your Kingdom of Crystal Skull playset, especially placing this vehicle along Peril in Peru, Russian's jeep. Keep up the good reviews.

Great review ISC! I loved the "Codys" at the end! :grin:   Like WhitFang, I give it a  :thumbup:   :wink:

For a Brickmaster exclusive, I think this is a great set. I especially like the color scheme used and the design for the mudguards is fantastic.

You certainly have plenty of sunshine where you are. :oh:  I guess it is just about Australian summer isn't it?

Great review. My cousin has this and it looked pretty detailed for such a small car.

Great kit and it comes with a fig.  Cannot beat that.  I think for the small size it really works well and I could always use another indy.

I own this set myself. I was just about to make a review about this and you beat me to it. I really like the set, however, I wish that the side pouch for Indy came with it. That disappointed me when I opened the bag.  :sad:

Dont let me stop you, Eurobricks loves multiple reviews, that way we all learn something  :thumbup:

Im even going to get around to doing a DS 10188 review even though Dunamis and Mutley have already, now thats a tough group to follow. :classic:

Nice and funny review for an excellent set!

Like the other 08-eventees I got this set even more exclusively. :grin:
Although our package lacked the extra transparent red and yellow 1x1 round plates... :look:  :wink:
