Sell your Indiana Jones toys to Wheeljack’s Lab!
In 1981, George Lucas enraptured the minds of millions across the world with the debut of his newest film, Raiders of the Lost Ark. The suave charm of Harrison Ford’s acting cemented Indiana Jones as the definitive treasure hunter and tomb raider. Thus, it is no surprise that both men and women loved the rugged doctor of anthropology that was presented to them.
Even today, the influence of this movie can be felt from current titles such as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Uncharted.
Looking to sell your Kenner Indiana Jones – Raiders of the Lost Ark toys?
Even though the movie hit screens in 1981, Kenner did not release their line of Indiana Jones toys until 1982. Even though there was a year between the two, the fan interest did not wane. So, this toy line was quickly proven to be a success and even lead to a second series of toys for the Raiders of the Ark line.

Bio: I am the founder and owner of Wheeljack’s Lab pop Culture and Toy Shop. My vision has always been to reunite customers with their favorite childhood toys and pop culture, triggering fond memories, and reigniting their imaginations. Every day, I work in the “lab” where it is Christmas 365 days a year. I scour the internet, like when we had the Sears Catalog of yesteryear, for the next great treasure. Then, I await the arrival of the postman as if he were Santa Claus himself and helping collectors worldwide with their versions of Christmas. Every day as a vintage toy buyer is an absolute joy!
