|Both are 12" tall.|
One is talking Indy.
He's operated by pushing a button in his abdomen.
He has the usual Indiana Jones outfit.
The Indiana Jones hat.
The 'leather' jacket and button up shirt.
He has a belt holding up his brown pants,(which are tan in the picture on the box.)
He also has brown boots. The soles are painted black,which is a nice bit of detail.
Everybody loves the scene where Indy steals the golden idol and gets chased by the giant rock. So you can reenact the scene,he comes with the idol.
|And his pistol, which fits in his holster.|
So it would be stupid if he didn't come with his whip.
In fact, in a goofball move, he comes with two whips. One is attached to his side,and the other one is loose, for play.
|This illustration looks odd,since they don't point to where the holster is.|
Although there was a doll based on Shia Labeouf's character in 'Crystal Skull' released in the same series,these dolls are meant to be the Indiana from the original movie.
|Shia Labeouf played Mutt Williams, Indy's son." To quote Wakko Warner, Uhh...IIIIII don't think so."|
The boxes both describe scenes from "Raiders of the Lost Ark".
|This is the talking doll box.|
|And this is the other guy's box. Both scenes mentioned are in "Raiders of the Lost Ark".|
|But wait. Some of these quotes are from "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" too.|
|He also has some impressive beard stubble.|
When his stomach is pushed his mouth opens and he speaks. With some creative button manipulation you can almost make his mouth move to the words.
The other doll is an Indiana with sound too...
..but the most he can muster are whip cracking sounds.
He has a button on his back that, when pushed, makes his arm fly down (from the upward position, which you have to do first.), and a 'whip cracking' sound is heard.
He has a similar outfit to talking Indy.except his shirt has 'sweat stains'.
|Here you can see that he has a jointed elbow and wrist.|
|He has some nice realistic facial features too. While both are good likenesses of Harrison Ford,I think this guy is better,mainly because the mouth opening feature of the other one makes him look a bit different.|
He comes with his pistol,holster, and 'man purse'.
|He also has a plastic belt and brown pants.|
When Fuzzy was Indiana Jones for Halloween one year I made him an Indy 'man purse'. When I looked it up online to get a really good picture of it to work from, I found out it's really a gas mask bag.
|A very sweaty Indiana about to shoot that really tall guy with a sword. Note the man purse.|
It's a WWII British “MkVII” gas mask bag,with a different strap. Did nobody mention to the film makers that all three of the first movies were set before World War II?
I couldn't get a good picture of talking Indy's shoes, but this guy's are the same.
|Nice stitching and lace detail.|
Both dolls contained an offer I really wish we had acted on.
|Gee, I guess I'm a little too late.|
Of course, that would have meant buying 2 more dolls. That would have been pretty expensive. As it was, I was never supposed to open these dolls in case it became necessary for Ken to sell them. I pointed out to him today that the ark we could have sent for would be worth way more now than the four dolls would have cost.
Tomorrow we'll look an,what else
