At my local Wal-Mart I found this Indiana Jones toy in approximately 1/32 scale. Close enough anyway. It has limited uses for anything other than an Indiana Jones set-up, but hey, it's pretty rockin'. They also had a figure of "Mutt" from the new movie on a customized motercycle in about 1/32, but maybe a touch bigger.
These are part of the Titanium series, and come fully painted. Right now, the one pictured and the "Mutt" figure on the motorcycle are the only ones in roughly 54mm scale. You can see the entire line here at the Hasbro site. You 1/72 guys might find something you need. Hopefully they will release something similar featuring some Germans.
