If you look at the "More Views" pictures, you'll see that in one shot it's coiled up, but in another it's stretched out.

I'll be able to verify my theory either when I save up 70 bucks for the Temple Escape set or when my local store(s) decide to get a set other than that one in stock.

Well, there is always the off chance that lego is actually shipping multipul whips with the set. Based on the actual pictures I've seen, the whip looks like it's made out of a stiffer plastic. Either way, I've really got to get any Indiana Jones set, just so I can get that bag w/ strap you see in all the photos. Even if he is peach, I'll just swap the head and hands for the classic Johnny Thunder head and some yellow hands.

Thats the spirit, Dark Wolf! You can also create some peach minifigs to blow up... Dare I say it? Peach Dimmys?

How dare you say such things, peach minifigs ARE dimmys.

Don't worry, I'll strap the peach minifigs to the tips of my ICMBs. Oh, and overload them with extra blood, so the entire blast area is bright red :twisted:

Actually, Dimmys are guys with the horrible T-Shirts, and baseball caps... Now, if we add a peach head and hands, it becomes something twice as disgusting, and twice as fun to blow up!

AND they're from a european country decimated by the blitzkreig.

Lego can't make Piltogg minifigs, Piltogg toys are illegal in too many big European markets. I think if you look carefully on the packaging and promotional materials they're just anonymous "guards." Just "guards," they don't even get to be soldiers! (Take that, Piltogg!)

True, but with a little modification, they can become perfect(Minus Swastika) SA or SS uniforms, which is exactly what I'll be using them for....

Can anyone say undead Piltogg super-soldier Hero units?
Well what've we got here....
