Kenner's Adventures of Indiana Jones
Despite it's parentage of Lucas and Spielberg, Indiana Jones has never been the merchandising success like it's cousins Star Wars and E.T. One could blame that on it's historical surrounds and it's lack of wookies, it's really never been established why.
One of the best attempts at merchandising Indy was Kenner's 1982 "Adventures of Indiana Jones" line, released in 1982, a year after the film made it's debut, it was a nicely made if not sparse toy line that ran for two years. What little did come out was actually quite nice and now very collectible.:
The line's concept was simple, the vehicle was powered by the Turbo Tower and then put through a stunt, the variations on this are amazing..
Kenner would later use this concept on licenses like the Six Million Dollar Man.
