Then you say, "But, Teekay, why should we wait?" and then I say: "Endor Bunker, Tauntaun, Ackbar. Need I say more?" Does anyone remember, we were all so excited for the Tauntaun and the Ackbar and the Endor bunker. What happened to all that excitement FBTB? What happened?
20 bucks it gets renewed.

The original license, was announced in the public as a "multi-year" deal. I'm not sure if 2008 has been documented publicly as the cut-off of the original license, but that's generally accepted...I vaguely remember some reliable and official source revealing that info at some point, but I can't find anything definitive on the Internet. It was announced in 2006 that the license had been extended until 2011.

I would guess that given the mutually beneficial relationship with Lucasfilm, LEGO would want to continue that partnership as long as it remains that way. Indy doesn't quite reap the harvest that Star Wars does though...not in terms of subjects suitable for marketable LEGO sets. If I were a betting man, I'd say that Indy will run alongside SW until 2011 and will probably go away after that...but that's pure speculation on my part.
