    Does anybody think that Lego will make keychains of the Indy Lego figure, like they do of their SW, Batman, Harry Potter and Spongebob Squarepants figures? If so, I'm getting one!

    You should see what type of adult things I can make out of legos.

    No, no, I'm interested in what he's talking about. Those sculptures they make out of legos is cool as hell. My g/f might like something new to do with our legos.

    I'm 25 and still collect LEGO bricks although I haven't bought any in a while. I currently have my eye on the LEGO Jabba's Barge which is on the mark down rack at my local Walmart. Waiting for it to come down in price. However I'll be buying the Indy LEGO sets the day they hit the shelves.

    Never been a huge fan of the whole LEGO thing. It's cool and all, but just not me.

    Few years back I got a gift of an R2 lego thing and I decided to keep it in package. Appreciate in value it will! :)

    And that's the saddest part :rolleyes:

    Toys are made to be played with, kids!

    What makes you think adults don't play with their LEGO?

    How old are you, if I may ask?

    Dude. Obi Von Kenobi. Are you on a Star Wars message board dissing people who collect legos? Surely you're too cool to be here. I mean, seriously right?

    Refering to my initial statement:
    It is the intensity of the excitment for those toys that mesmerizes me. They are "2nd degree" mechandizing products meant to be played with by kids.
    It's one thing to like fantasy movies, but it's an other, IMO, for grown ups to collect and play with those toys. And I find that to be funny and sad, at the same time, in my point of view.
    Sorry if it offends people, but that's just the way I see it and that doesn't mean I cannot be a fan of Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies, despite this opinion.
    And it certainly doesn't mean that I expect everybody to agree with me.
    Still, thanks for the compliment of I being too cool ;)

    Not all Lego is really designed for kids.

    The two largest Star Wars Lego sets (10030 Imperial Star Destroyer £250, 10179 Millennium Falcon £350 - both of which I own) are certainly not. It would take a very very patient child to put them together without getting bored with the sheer time it takes. Additionally, they're huge - and a most kids simply wouldn't be able to display them.

    According to the latest issue of Star Wars Insider (Luke and Leia on the cover) the Indy LEGO sets will be released in January.

    What's up with the SW Insider devoting only a corner of one page to Indy 4 in each issue? You'd think since a new Lucasfilm movie will be arriving soon they'd pay more attention to it.

    Yeah, you would figure they would have more coverage and exclusive access to the film. However they may have a lot lot of stuff planned but they're having to sit on it right now until we get closer to the release date.
