Need an overview for all available sets? > QuickGuide: LEGO
Let's take an outlook for future LEGO sets coming in 2009. So far I saw pictures of two new sets coming early 2009:
LEGO set 7683 Fight on the Flying Wing from Raiders of the Lost Ark
LEGO set 7682 Shanghai Chase from Temple of Doom

One of the harder to get LEGO sets this year is the BrickMaster Jungle Cruiser exclusive set 20004 featuring Indy in a Jeep.
If you don't have access to those exclusive sets there is another way to get this gem into your collection: Shop the 83 pieces separately and build your own! Here is a good post with a part list and and rather good plans (mostly in German but the parts list is in English): http://www.1000steine.com/forum2/forum_entry.php?id=159773

One place I have to visit every time is DisneySea, the second Disney park. They have a whole zone for Indy (the Lost River Delta) and since last year that zone hosts a second main attraction: The Raging Spirits, a roller coaster with a looping, similar to the Disneyland Paris Indy ride. (The first main attraction is the Temple of the Crystal Skull, a variation of the Temple of the Forbidden Eye.) The new coaster is great, better tuned than the French one. I this this was the smoothest coaster ride I ever had, and I have been riding quite a few before.
Not only did I shop all the Japanese Disney goods, I also set out to find more Indy goodies on the road. In Japan they have lots of UFO catchers (crane game) with high quality unique prizes for anime series, films and so on. I carried a lot of stuff home and sorting the stuff, taking pictures and describe it will take some days. Here is a first glance on a nice set of room lights: The Golden Idol and the Crystal Skull as battery lamps to light up the home. What more can I ask for :)
More updates to come soon!

Time to take a look at those French beauties:
For more info: Richard Beugné's Indy novels & Jérôme Jacobs's Indy novels
Addon: I just added a Hasbro toy QuickGuide. That's a helpful reference sheet for your shopping trips.

The "classic" Indiana Jones MAD issue (MAD US edition). MAD covered each Indy film and the hat still fits ;-)The German Indiana Jones MAD issue (MAD Germany). They lack graphic artists, they lack story and most of all they lack humor but at least they tried:
Disney Germany digged out their own Indy clone (Indiana Goof) and delivered a number of comics for the kiddies. First we have the weekly Mickey Mouse magazine. Issue 21 comes with an adventure toy, a pack of Merlin stickers, and some KotCS coverage inside:
Mickey Mouse magazine issue 22 follows with another adventure toy and more KotCS coverage inside:
Next is a special issue of Indiana Goof comics;
The last piece is an Indiana Goof "Lustiges Taschenbuch". I can't find it right now, so no picture for the moment.

- Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
- Indiana Jones and the Tomb of Gods

I had no luck on seeing anything like those at the premiere in Vienna. But I have been in an English Cinema rather than in one of the countless multiplex centers that show German dubbed films. I will check one of the centers soon just to be sure I do not miss fancy stuff like the cups.
producer: Spiel Spass (German company, www.spielspass-verlag.de; but nothing on their homepage yet)
pieces: 1000 pieces
size: 65 cm x 47,5 cm
available motives: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Temple of Doom (picture is a composition I have not sen before)
here is a quick cellphone shot:

For the collection you get a 48 pages album (for 3.- Euros) and get to buy sticker packs with 6 random stickers (0,50 Euros per pack). There are 240 different stickers to get. Most stickers have a size of 5 x 8.5 cm, fewer are 6 x 8.5 cm. Even fewer are 6 x 8.5 cm printed on metallic foil. Interesting bit: The sticker packs are in English, so I guess they sell the same packs all over Europe, while the album is in German (so I guess they made versions for all countries where they sell it). Another interesting bit: The story (flavor text) told in the album is a cut down version of the film. They do neither tell about the relationship between Indy and Mutt nor about the ending (they just enter the temple and then everything gets destroyed in a cyclone.
If you collect these stickers and want to trade some, please contact me!

Last week IJC.at ran into some server troubles that forced me to move the site. While this was the worst time for a site downtime to happen, I think the outcome is a gain for the site. On the new hosting place I have lots of fancy web toys I can use to enhance the site.
One request if you have put a link to IJC.at on your website: Please update the link! All pages are now available with a IJC.at address! Thank you!

- Indy 4 postcards
- Indy 4 book marks
- The Austrian Skip magazine (free but readable movie mag)
Today my copy of the Indy board game by Clementoni arrived from Germany. It's bigger than I thought, 42 x 29 x 6 cm. I took a quick picture and labeled all the parts:
The company I bought the game from was actually thinking ahead. They included a flyer for the Top Trumps Special: Indiana Jones The Complete Adventures in the box. Yeah, something new to look for.
And finally back in the cinema (on the left you can see the counter). They have a nice cardboard display, about 2.5 m high, standing there now. (No, they won't give it to me...)

17 countries are sending a contestant to Morocco in October 2008. They will get a week of adventures, quests and challenges, searching for a crystal skull. The winner will get a trophy worth 10.000 $. I found this in an Austria movie magazine which has a contest for being the Austrian guy to join the challenge. To sign up you have to be male, 18+, healthy and able to speak English. Take a peek on the contest here: http://www.skip.at/promo/25/
I do not know which magazines/companies feature this challenge in the other 16 participating countries (heck, I do not even know which 16 countries will get it). But you might wanna start looking c|:)

Sehr geehrter Herr Krasny -
Vielen Dank für Ihre Anfrage und Ihr Interesse an unseren Produkten.
Wir haben uns entschieden den Indiana Jones Becher in Österreich nicht in unserem Sortiment aufzunehmen und stattdessen z.B. Winnetou, Hello Kitty und unseren Goal Cup einzuführen welche auch ganz tolle Kinderprodukte sind und Sammeleffekte bieten.
Herzliche Grüße und einen schönen Sommer!
Ihr Nestlé Schöller TeamIf you can't read German, they just mocked me by telling me to be happy with the great Hello Kitty cup that they have added to their goods.
Here is my reply: Fuck you, Nestlé! If you think anyone waited 19 years for a Hello Kitty cup or some soccer championship crap then your marketing guys are even worse than your products. At least I don't feel bad for never buying your lousy ice cream.
Here is another shot from what we not got: The Indy movie cup with vanilla/cacao ice cream, each coming with one of seven collectible figures. I am developing an growing urge for a short trip to Italy to buy some ... ("short" is a relative term, it's a four hours drive to Italy)

Another Indy game to come is a DVD adventure game by Hasbro. "Released in 2008 as part of the general licensing push built around the year's new Indy movie, this mass-market game invites players to recreate Indy's previous quests. The components include a board, player tokens, and miniature plastic replicas of the Sankara stones, the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail."

If you can read German check out fresh scans of the April 2008 Consol.at issue with a two page preview of the games and the May 2008 Players.at issue with a four page retro story about the old Indy games and a one page preview of the LEGO game.
And again more tasty Indy snack: I discovered Indy and the Coco Pops in an Italian super market. The coco pops come with four collectible mini ball mazes. They are "3D" meaning that each maze has two sides and two wholes that connect them. To get the ball from point A to B the route takes both sides. The four mazes are: Mutt's Motorcycle, the Crystal Skull, a Giant Ant and a Secret Sculpture. I have not yet found those Coco Pops in Austria super markets.

This one will be available not only in Italy (Motta again) but also in Germany (Schöller) (and hopefully Austria).
"Ice cream with vanilla flavor with a gum flavor coating and amazing whip-marks" - Now this would surprise even the toughest archaeologist ,-)
here is a link: http://www.schoeller.de/Home/UnserEis/Unterwegs/BunteEisknaller/IndianaJones.htm
update: This goody is also available in single portions. I found found two German press texts about this ice cream:
Das Eis für Helden: Indiana Jones
Und weiter geht's mit kühnen Abenteurern. Passend zum im Mai anlaufenden Film Indiana Jones und das Königreich des Kristallschädels stimmt Nestlé Schöller die Kids bereits ab März 2008 auf das vierte Abenteuer des Helden ein. Die Multipackung Indiana Jones enthält sechsmal das leckere Stieleis mit Vanillegeschmack, umhüllt von einer orangefarbenen Glasur mit Kaugummigeschmack und verziert mit dunklen Streifen aus kakaohaltiger Glasur. Ein Eis, wie es junge Genießer lieben und ein Held, mit dem sie sich gerne identifizieren (unverbindliche Preisempfehlung: EUR 2,69).
Indiana Jones auch einzeln ein Hit
Indiana Jones ist ab März 2008 nicht nur in der Multipackung sondern auch einzeln als Stieleis erhältlich. Mit dem leckeren Eis mit Vanillegeschmack, in einer Hülle aus orangefarbener Glasur mit Kaugummigeschmack und verziert von dunklen Streifen aus kakaohaltiger Glasur können junge Entdecker schon einmal von den großen Abenteuern ihres Kinohelden in Indiana Jones und das Königreich des Kristallschädels träumen (unverbindliche Preisempfehlung: EUR 1,00).
