LEGO Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull: Jungle Duel
By Lando da Pimp
Millionaire Playboy got an exclusive look at the first of four new LEGO Indiana Jones sets based on the upcoming film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Ninety one pieces make up set number 7624 Jungle Duel making it the smallest of the new sets.
I can only assume that Indy and Mutt have a sword duel with Agent Irina Spalko. Of course without seeing the film that is only speculation, but I would guess that I am correct since we know that Mutt travels along with Indy.
The set is made up of mutiple items including LEGO's first tent to utizlize paper. The tent has an opening on both sides with one side held shut by a LEGO piece. No poles hold up the tent. The paper is strong enough to stand on its own held in place by four base anchors.
A small table and bench is where Indy studies the map and eat by a table lamp. Spalko's katana blade however breaks the table apart ruining Indy's chicken dinner. I am basing that Spalko breaks the table based on the box artwork. Also included is a fire and rack holding various swords.
The mini-figures include Indiana Jones with bullwhip, Mutt Williams with his switchblade, and Agent Spalko with sword.
This is a nice introductory set to the new Indiana Jones sets. The tent works really well. I was a bit afraid that I would have trouble foling the paper right. If you are looking to only spend a few bucks and get some great Indiana Jones mini-figures then this is the set for you.
