5 minifigs come in this set. Torsos and legs are in bag 1, heads and hairs in a smaller bag in it.
Willie is completely new
New hair (back is on top) in light yellow
New torso and legs
Torso is also printed on the back
That's not blood that leaks through the hair !
Just the lips, the head is double-sided
Gansgsters (I don't remember who they are). Faces and suits seem to be new ? They wear Indy hat in black.
They look great !
Indy and short Round. Of course Indy is in every IJ box. But this one is at last a little bit more smart !
What you build with bag 1
Some shots of the car :
There is a smaller bag in bag 2 and a cardboard folded around the dark tan canopy.
It takes a few minutes to build the car :
In my opinion, the windscreen is far too small and gives this odd roofline to the car. I'd rather put a hinge as TLC used to in Adventurer sets.
This slope and the flag are issued for the first time in tan color, as far as I remember.
The complete set :
It's a rather cheap set (for a licensed one) with no useless cumbersome part but full of uncommon torsos. Cars will easily fit in any Lego city with minor changes. And I do appreciate to get a newly dressed IJ minifig.
Hope you enjoy this review.

This is a beautiful looking set with fantastic minifigs and pretty well-designed cars. It's great to finally see Indy in a different outfit isn't it?
I suppose the U.S. price will be $30 then. Thanks for the review!

Daoudbazaar, this is a fine review with many nice pictures. I am seriously considering getting a few sets of this, mainly for these few reasons. The range of the minifigs are unique to its own. Their face, hair and torsos are simply marvelous especially Willie Scott and a white tux worn by Indiana Jones. The chinese gangsters are nice addition to your mafia in a typical City set up. Short Round looks cute and bubbly as well. The cars are speechless. I find it very impressive indeed, with the classic cars back in the 1940s. This is indeed a great set for all Indiana Jones lovers. Thanks for taking your time to post this review in Eurobricks.
