Kenner did 'Alien' toys but not 'Temple of Doom'.
What...the...****.

I think that because the Raiders figures sold poorly, that Kenner didn't really want Temple of Doom.  However, if the Kenner figures had hit when Raiders did, May 1981, instead of Sept 1982 (If I rememeber well...) they would have sold a lot better!

One step closer to completing my vintage Indy collection. Got a MIB Well of Souls set. The box is a little messed up but everything is still sealed in its bags.  ;D

And the Well of Souls (missing torches and some snakes):


 :o

That is fantastic.  I've only got the base, the big piece of the wall, the mummy, and (oh yeah) just the bottom of the Ark, no lid, which absolutely drives me bat-**** crazy.  Everything else is long-gone.  Love that tidbit on the Ark Cover.  Don't think I ever knew that before, either.

Not sure if you're interested in acquiring vintage Indy stuff anymore, but sometimes The Earth Toy Mall gets in vintage Indy toys at pretty good prices (their Star Wars stuff is fairly priced, so I assume the Indy products are too when they do get it in).

THIS looks like a fair price, or at least it was when they had one in stock.

I finally got around to taking a pick of the well of souls set i picked up. The box is in pretty good condition but the parts are all still sealed which i couldnt resist.





As for the new info. The price is a bit high. I think its great we are getting playsets and deluxe figures. A horse would make sense but if they are giving us a well of souls playset i think the ark would be inlcuded there.

All of a sudden I'm getting interested in vintage Indy stuff.

Is $125.00 a fair price for this?

Who's to say Chewie - there's a lot of hype now because of the movies so personally, I don't think now is the right time to start collecting vintage Indy.

You could be right... and really, 2008 would be the time to SELL Indy stuffy probably; for those considering parting with their stuff.

I think that might be a fair price though... I'm sure it will be gone after Christmas, but if it's still available, I'm probably going to order it.

The Map Room doesn't typically top $100.  Yet.  Maybe if that's a sealed box with sealed baggies inside (duh) then it's ok for a price.  It would fetch a premium though as the condition is very good based on those pictures. 

Who's to say Chewie - there's a lot of hype now because of the movies so personally, I don't think now is the right time to start collecting vintage Indy.

Agreed.  The prices really started to climb in September and there are currently a couple of speculators on ebay snapping up stuff at prices higher than they were three months ago presumably with the expectation of selling them next year when the movie hits.  Auctions for MISB stuff go a little wacky.  You can still occasionally luck into bargains though.

I just finished out my loose, vintage Indy collection (I do have a few boxes) about two weeks ago with a loose version of the Streets of Cairo.

Maybe I'll just hold off then.  With the new stuff coming out maybe that will hold me over.

LJN Indiana Jones Figures
« Reply #26 on: December 17, 2007, 06:47 PM »
I think these figures are mixed in with the Kenner figures but i figured they should have their own thread. Anyway I finally picked up a Mola Ram on card with a severe yellow bubble. It does have the white skull variant though. Not sure which is more rare, but that is the one i got.

I still need to get the Indy. Once i get him i will consider myself officially complete with regards to the vintage figures.
