Indy Week 5: Old Toys

Whatever we get next year, it will be worlds above the meager lines that Kenner put out in 1982, a full year after Raiders of the Lost Ark hit theaters. They weren't great figures and sold so poorly Kenner didn't bother doing anything for the sequels. But I didn't care. I cherished these toys like they were gold. And according to ebay, they were.

The 12 inch "Han Solo in a hat" figure:

The "slightly modified cowboy" 3 3/4 inch line.

Wow. I remember those ads.

So did they actually skip over Indiana's various sidekicks and what not just so they could make "Cairo Swordsman"?

What about the shirtless guy who got eviscerated by the plane propeller. That would have been cool -- "With real splaying action"
