Toyguide Update: Figma 6″ Indiana Jones

figmaindy_preview

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume with a special entry today (in lieu of a lame April Fool’s Day joke). Here we take a detailed look at the Figma 6″ Indiana Jones figure from Max Factory.

PROS: The Max Factory Figma line is well known for their craftsmanship and attention to detail and that carries through with this figure. Overall, Indy has a great look about him serving as a representation of the character from Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade. (Mercifully, you’ll find no Crystal Skull reference in this figure.) Dr. Jones comes with a nice assortment of accessories, namely all the extra hands, his signature whip, pistol, and a couple film specific treasures like the Golden Idol, Sankara stone, and Holy Grail. What is also great is that you can easily incorporate a few of the mystery relics and accessories that were packed with Hasbro 3-3/4″ Indy line to expand the display options. That brings us to the eyes: Max Factory has incorporated a separate “eye piece” that is accessed behind the face. This allows for a far more accurate paint application of the eye details. For good measure, they include an extra – just in case.

CONS: At $60 (US), this figure doesn’t come cheap when compared to Hasbro’s line, but it makes up for it in quality in articulation, deco and likeness.  Lack of a working holster to stow the pistol was a let down, but a minor quibble. Wrist sockets that receive the pegs for the interchangeable hands seems as though they will “loosen” over time – the result being that the hands may fall off.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether you’ll find the time to love Dr. Jones and add him to your collection.

You can also weigh in with your impressions on the figures we add to our toyguide on facebook and in our forums.

    Aren’t they forgetting something very critical? What about the trademark beard stubble? That is a big miss for a figure so expensive.

  • Alexander Gates

    Where’s the best place to purchase this?

    • Miguel Sandoval

      Better off going to Disney Store and getting Star Wars Black Series.

  • Jason Wood

    I had this preordered at bbts but lack of a working holster is a big con for me so I cancelled my order. For almost $68 this figure needs a working holster.

  • Kyle Zukowski

    I would much rather buy three 6″ TBS figures at that price.

  • Arnold Corso

    I share the general sentiment here. For $60, this figure should be perfect. It isn’t.

      Are you glad you got it?

        Absolutely

    $60? Really? For what? How many Indys does anyone need? Especially a 6 inch one. Too over priced and past due! The movies are done and Indy’s an old man. For $60 I will drop that on some 6 Inch Star Wars Black Series for me!

    What you describe as the reason for the eyes, is that explained in the packaging? It looks like they got his green eye color correctly, huh? I like this. I am not crazy about the shiny bulges in his elbows, but other than that this figure looks nice.

    Just can’t justify the price, especially when you see it side by side with the Han Solo.
