Indiana Jones set.

Postby OneEye589 » Mon Sep 08, 2008 12:59 pm

Okay, so I was looking through the toy section at my local WalMart which sucks for Legos, but it did open my eyes to this...

I'm not sure if it's common knowledge here. Look at the top panel of heiroglyphics. There's something a little strange about it. I'm not sure if you can see it on there that well, but-

-it has a picture of R2-D2 and C3PO.

I think that's awesome.

That set looks like it came straight out of the first Johnny Thunder line.

Ah, didn't know that it was old.

And Zahru, I thought I had heard about that, but I wasn't sure. When I saw it in the store today it reminded me. I found it kind of strange though, because on the front of the box it's a different set of heiroglyphs. It only shows the R2-D2 and C3PO on the back picture.

I just searched for the Star Wars references in Indiana Jones and this came up: http://www.joblo.com/forums/showthread.php?t=118397

It's got that one and a few more if anyone's interested.

Bonn-O-Tron, I thought the same thing when I saw it. I was pretty psyched, but I hate the peach-colored figures. The peach coloring carries over on to some of the torsos.

In Star Wars episode 5, in the carbon freezing chamber, in the background, you can see that crate with the swatsika on it that the nazis in Indiana Jones stored the ark in.

There are I.J. Astarte eggs in Star Wars, and S.W. Astarte eggs in Indiana Joneses. It's common knowledge.

That's really neat. I knew there were some, but I never thought to look them up and I never noticed them.

No, Johnny Thunder rocks. Those were probably my favorite sets.

Hang on, empire came out in 1980 and Raiders was 1981? that was some foresight by Lucas/Spielberg if this is true, I shall have to watch Empire and see.

Actually although I'm a complete Star Wars geek, I have yet to make the time to go through Episode five and pause through that scene.

It might not even be true, I heard it from a website.

Also, it might only be in the digitally re-mastered edition, because yeah it would mean foresight.

Of course it's on the digital edition.

Other than that, it would be a great foresight.
