Indiana Jones fans are starting to get excited as the first wave of Indiana Jones Retro Collection figures are starting to hit Target Stores and now also available to preorder on EE! These new Wave 1 figures are overflowing with nostalgia and look just like their vintage counterparts! The card back artwork look amazing, straight outta the 1980’s Kenner Toy line, although thin and flimsy. These figures feature 7 points of articulation which include knee bends, so you can sit your figures on all those cool vehicles! Wave 1 consists of Indiana Jones, Marion Ravenwood, Toht, Belloq and the German Mechanic! Be sure to also check out our retro Indy review all his own! In the meantime, let’s dive into the rest of the Indiana Jones Retro Collection Wave 1 for an in hand review!
Marion Ravenwood – Raiders of the Lost Ark
Marion Ravenwood, damsel in distress and companion to Indy in Raiders of the Lost Ark! Hasbro did an excellent job in recreating the original series 1 1982 action figure! She comes complete with a real soft goods lace skirt and her little monkey companion. The lace on her dress looks very detailed and very beautiful. Kenner did a great job in recreating the original vintage version.
The Card Back is a beautiful recreation of the original Kenner Indiana Jones figures of the 1980’s except they are made of a very thin cardboard, just like the Star Wars Retro Collection. I am glad that they keep the design true to the original with the logo, and hieroglyphic piping around the edges. The Adventures of Indiana Jones logo looks so cool as well. And of course, it includes the “Raiders of the Lost Ark” logo as well! Marion looks like the damsel in distress holding a lit torch. The rear shows the cross sell of the rest of the wave.
Marion includes her Pet companion monkey who is wearing a small red painted vest. His face has a nice little sculpt and he has some cool details on the rest of his body outlining his little arms, legs and tail.

Toht – Raiders of the Lost Ark
Toht, the quintessential bad guy! Another great recreation of the original vintage Kenner action figure. Toht comes with his black over coat and a revolver. This one is definitely a classic figure and a must have for Indiana Jones fans! His black trench coat is removeable, and he is wearing a black suit underneath. He has a red tie and red handkerchief in his breast pocket. Toht’s right hand is in that up position to make his signature hand gesture. He is also wearing his classic hat that is molded on his head. Toht has eyeglasses on his face which look great! The Card Back is similar to Marion’s but this one includes a portrait of Toht holding his right hand up, right from the Raider’s of the Lost Ark movie. The rear shows the cross sell of the rest of the wave.
Below you can see what he looks like with his trench coat removed. You can see the snazy suit that he is wearing, and his sculpt it true to the vintage figure.
Toht includes his signature revolver. It is made of a very soft plastic and mine was a little bent when I removed it from the package. But the revolver has some nice sculpt so they did a good job on it over all. Toht holds the gun ok, but it tends to fall out of his hand easily.

Belloq – Raider of the Lost Ark
Belloq is another wonderful recreation of the original 1980’s Kenner action figure. He comes complete with his red checkered soft goods robe, gold chest plate and golden staff! Kenner really nailed it when it comes to recreating a retro version of him. I really love the details on his outfit, as Hasbro did an incredible job at recreating the original figure! The Card Back is similar to rest but this one includes a portrait of Belloq in one of the caverns holding his golden staff, right from the Raider’s of the Lost Ark movie. The rear shows the cross sell of the rest of the wave.
Belloq includes his golden staff and comes with a very detailed gold colored chest plate around his neck. The staff and chest plate both have a lot of very nice details sculpts on them. They chest plate has some circlular patterns sculpted into it that have some silver and copper accents. The staff has a ram head design.

German Mechanic – Raider of the Lost Ark
The German Mechanic is another classic vintage Kenner character. He looks tough, and I am sure you wouldn’t want to run into this guy in a crowded marketplace or working on your broken-down jeep! He comes complete with a wrench to work on Indy’s vehicles! The Card Back is similar to the rest but this one includes a portrait of the German Mechanic working on a jeep, right from the Raider’s of the Lost Ark movie. The rear shows the cross sell of the rest of the wave.
The German Mechanic includes his signature wrench. It is made of a very soft plastic and is a soft greyish green color. The wrench has some nice sculpt so they did a good job on it over all. The mechanic does hold the wrench actually very well. Also, his right hand has that action feature included so he can wheeled that wrench at his enemies!
