Ties, they restrict oxygen to the brain. Temple of Doom would have some of the best set options, certainly better than the Crystal Skulls stuff they barely pulled together out of old Adventurer set designs.
I count this official report Lame.
We'll probably get a really big and expensive Indy chess set encompasing all films, but thoughtfully skipping over Temple of Doom then, hmmm???
Temple of Doom was a great Film.
No iconic vehicle scenes? I beg to differ! Mine car chase is the first thing that comes to mind. It's also a justification for Lego to fabricate some new colors in baseplate: red or orange (lava). For playability, I would expect the set to be a little more open, more like an extreme stunts set, with mine carts leaping from track to track. It can be done, Lego. Give it some thought!
The other iconic vehicle scene (albeit a short one) would be the airplane. All you would need to do this set is a good sized airplane (great reason to put out an airplane set!), a yellow raft, (chickens and a crate?) the two pilots, and the three main characters.
Other Temple of Doom sets??
How about the trap door room with all the bugs!!? This can be a small set.
I would expect the Temple of Doom altar to be a set! Is it a dark theme? Well, of course it is... but why would that be an issue for Lego? They already have plenty of guns in their sets and dark themes in castle. I'm not saying guns are inherently bad, but they have a purpose and it seems difficult for me to believe that Lego couldn't sanitize where necessary and still create a good set. I'd put the prince in this set, 2 villagers, 3 henchmen and their leader. 3 main figs, of course.
Elephant journey to the village. 1 elephant, 3 main figures, 1 villager, 1 village elder. Comes with a magic stone?
And the final scene at the bridge: 3 rifleman figs, 3 cult henchman figs + their leader, the 3 major characters, and 2 alligators. More magic stones.
There you have it! Now get to work, Lego.
