LEGO Indiana Jones now available! 22 Apr, 2008, 04:21 / 4 comments

No, I'm not talking about the lame "video game" (those things will rot your brain, nerds), but rather the actual building block playsets. In other words, LEGOs. Following the excellent sets celebrating the original trilogy that were released this past December, the sets based on Crystal Skull (accidental premature descriptions of which provided some of the biggest officially-sanctioned spoilers for the film, oops) are now here.

Well, sorta. See, I don't think the sets are actually released until sometime in May, but while browsing Amazon for...weights...I found that three of the four Crystal Skull sets are listed as being in-stock. They are:

  • Jungle Duel - See, it's like a duel, but in the jungle.
  • River Chase - Indy and his friends chase down an unscrupulous river that attempts to evade capture.
  • Jungle Cutter - Insert pseudo-witty comment here.

Apparently unavailable is the crème de la crème of the new sets, the Temple of the Crystal Skull, so I guess we have to wait for the actual release date to nab that one like the underprivileged saps we are.

Also, I don't know for confirmed fact those things are shipping, because my Mom won't let me buy them yet, but in the event that they are I figured JP resident LEGO fans would appreciate the heads up, probably.

    Tee, I love these things. My brother has a few different Indiana Jones lego sets, and they're ace. Even cooler is that the scenes in the uncoming game share loads of characteristics with them, right down to the arc of the covenant being designed with exactly the same pieces.

    Time to bring back the classic Mojo Lego Reviews column, maybe?

    I'd be in for taht. They're not out in NZ for yet. They're supposed to be embargoed globally until May 1, but some shops are stocking prematurely in the US.

    I've got one of the Last Crusade ones, the cheapest obviously. Quite nice, Lego Indy and Dad on a motorbike.
