Are Star Toys Indiana Jones Figures, Bootleg or the Real McCoy?

These Indiana Jones figures are probably among the hardest and rarest to find. The figures were released in 1987 by Star Toys and were simply entitled Indiana Jones.

The line consisted of a single Indiana Jones figure, all bare-chested except one, with a variety of accessories (one actually came with a digital watch!).

These figures are often left off collectors checklists as little is known about them and they are often ruled out as bootlegs, which isn’t surprising as the figures are very crudely sculpted with little detail or likeness and were packaged on blister cards featuring a 1939 Mapa Mundi backgroundillustration.

However despite this they ARE the real deal and even have a Lucasfilm stamp across their back.

The only figure that came clothed was the Compass Indiana Jones wearing a brown jacket. All the figures came with a whip, bag, belt, hat and long gun. They also had very little articulation with only the neck and shoulders being of any use as the hips and waist were very restrictive.

These figures are among some of the rarest and most sought after Indiana figures, however despite this, and probably due to the lack of information and knowledge of them, they can still be picked up for less than $100!

The biggest problem with these is trying to find a complete list of them so far I know of seven, but whenever I thing I know of them all another one turns up!

The figures:

• Basic Figure, with whip, gun and hat  

• Basic Figure with giant snake

• Basic Figure with alligator

• Basic Figure, with Watch

• Basic Figure, with Cloth Bag

• Basic Figure, with Compass and wearing a brown jacket

• Basic Figure, with rats and light jacket
