Kenner Raiders of the Lost Ark Action Figures Commercial


The Indiana Jones figures were great, but for some reason never caught on like Star Wars or GI Joe. I don’t remember watching the commercial for them when they came out, but watching them now, I am not convinced they were really selling kids on the potential backyard Indy adventures. I would have focused on Indy swinging around by his whip instead of his adversarial relationship with Toht and his new trusty sidekick the Cairo Swordsman.
