Another great review Svelte! :cry_happy:

This really is a great set. 4 Minifigs, all of them with useful body parts and accessories and also only available in this set so far. The actual bricks included in this set make it a very nice parts-pack as well.

I'll definitely buy this one. :thumbup:  Thanks for the lovely review!

All of this for 11 dollars (maybe 10 euros?) ? That's not bad, certainly for a licensed set. Looks like I might get two!

Thanks for this great review!

This set is so fantastic! Four, it's almost unbelievable, four minifigures in this little neat set and the accesoires are also really nice. This is certainly a must buy.

I'm going to buy a few of these.  The sword guy will work great as a few more Thuggies for the Temple of Doom :thumbup: .

I like the set as a whole, but for God sake why do they have to be so cheap and give the swordsman a dented troll sword from castle? they could have used the scimitars from the orient expedition sets. I thought lego recycled peices, but they've chose the wrong peice this time. I am not impressed TLC  :sadnew: . But as for the rest of the set i love it! this will probably be  the only indy set i pick up this year (have to make room or starwars) because its cheap, has great minifigs and has great rare peices.

Awsome set.  Awsome review.  I can't wait to buy 10!  They picked one of the very best scenes from the movies and really came up with a terrific looking set.

They are most likely not making the older swords.  The sword included is most likely currently being produced for Castle so they used that.

This I think will be close to top set f the year, besides the expensive exclusives.

this looks like such a great set, to bad for the monkey and scimitar, otherwise it would be perfect, now it's "just" great.

I LOVE this set! It is perfect in nearly every way possible, its cheap, has great parts and figures, and most of all, its fun.  :classic:

I'm buying this as soon as I see it. Where is everyone getting all of these sets so many months ahead? I remember someone saying they got it in Toys R Us in the UK. I hope they will be released in the US soon, either in TRU or S@H...

All around great set and review.  :thumbup:

This is probably my favorite Indy set yet. With 4 figs and lots of accessories in such a small set it is perfect. The only improvements would have been to add the money with a fez or the other sword. Still for only $10 I will probably buy 2.

Save some sets for other people to review, eh? :tongue:

Great review again, Svelte. This is most certainly a must-buy, especially for only 10 dollars. The purple piece, tan barrel, Tommy gun and figs are all reasons for me to pick this one up ASAP. I'm also looking forward to the return of the turban and head scarf. The only con that I can think of in this set is the use of the Troll swoard instead of the Scimitar.

Wonderful set and review. :thumbup:

You're on fire with these fantastic reviews Svelte! :classic:  Your pictures are superb!
I rate this set a 5 and it's great to see Lego continuing to offer these smaller Indy sets.   I can't wait to find this set at my local TRU.

WOW! I bet this set is gonna be even harder to find than the graveyard ambush one. Four new figs, plus lots of rare parts (apples and minifig baskets). I can't wait to get my grubby hands on this one!!

Fab review svelte :thumbup:

One of the best concieved and most perfectly balanced Indy - nay - LEGO sets yet! Minifigs, accessories, parts, colours... keep-factor... all spot-on! This years Indy line is seeing some of the best minifigs ever produced by LEGO, many of them in this set. Superb! This one will sell by the bundle I'm sure, and I'll be one of those happy to part with a wee amount of cash for a whole load of goodness!

And svelte_corps does it again!

Got to say that from the second I saw this set I knew I would be buying more than one, definately the best IJ set that happens to be based on the best scene in IJ (in my opinion of course) :thumbup:
