Indiana Jones Toys

Indiana Jones toys are based on the films by George Lucas, with Raiders of the Lost Ark being the first film which was released in 1981. Four more films followed with Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom in 1984, The Last Crusade in 1989, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles from 1992 – 1996 and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in  2008.  With the relatively recent DVD release of the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Indiana Jones toys are expected to be at the top of most children’s Christmas lists.

We have managed to test out and review all the Indiana Jones toys on the market and have put together 6 of the hottest Indiana toys to buy this year:

Our Indiana Jones Toy Recommendations:

1. Indiana Jones LEGO river chase

LEGO Indiana Jones Venice Canal Chase (7197)

This Indiana Jones LEGO model comes with an amphibious vehicle and even a number of rare LEGO objects (crocodile, machine guns..etc) The Boat can take one minifig and is very durable as is the car that even has a spare tire on the back . This model set is made with grey, brown and green blocks which means it can easily be combined with other projects. The minifigs included are 2 Russian soldiers, Indiana Jones (with whip!) and even Marion.

Overall, this is a great Indiana Jones LEGO set and we expect it to be on of the hottest LEGO sets this Christmas

2. LEGO Indiana Jones The Temple of Doom (7199)

LEGO Indiana Jones The Temple of Doom (7199)

Now you can re-enact one of the coolest Indiana Jones scenes – the opening boulder scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark. The boulder works really well and this set even comes with dart traps, snake pits, swinging blades and even a collapsing wall.

I think this toy has a chance to become a “must have” Christmas toy. Our Boys (aged 5 + 6) play with this particular set endlessly with a little help from me

3. Indiana Jones LEGO Jungle Cutter

LEGO® Indiana Jones Jungle Cutter

This LEGO set comes with an actual moving cutter. Everything is made from LEGO pieces and the blades from the cutter actually revolve! This LEGO set comes with 4 minifigs and a motorcycle, 3 detailed trees and even a small temple. We enjoyed putting the cutter together and once it’s built it worked amazingly. I can imagine this toy will be another Indiana Jones toy hit this Christmas.

Overall, this is a great Indiana Jones LEGO set and we expect it to be on of the hottest LEGO sets this Christmas

4. Indiana Jones LEGO Shanghai Chase

LEGO #7622 Indiana Jones Race for the Stolen Treasure

Now you can re-enact the famous Shanghai chase with Shorty and Willie. The faces are really detailed, with Willie you can even change her face from happy or scared. Shorty is small enough to be put into the trunk so both can fit in the car. Indy comes with a dinner jacket which is exclusive to this set. Overall a great set that will provide hours of fun.

LEGO #7622 Indiana Jones Race for the Stolen Treasure
  • Recommended for ages 7-14
  • Contains 272 pieces including 4 minifigures
  • Released in 2008 - Retired !

5. Indiana Jones LEGO Temple of the Crystal [7627]

Temple of 7627 of LEGO Indiana Jones Crystal Skull (japan import)

This is one amazing Indiana Jones LEGO set. This set is from the final adventure from Indiana Jones 4. The mini-figs included are, 2 Ooga Warriors, 1 Russian soldier, Indy, Mutt Williams, Irina Spalko and too many skeletons to count! This set even comes with working traps such as the exploding stairs and spinning skeletons.  This is another Indiana Jones toy that we think will be a major hit this Christmas.

6. Indiana Jones LEGO Flying Wing

GERMAN FLYING WING Indiana Jones 3 Inch Titanium Series RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK Die-Cast Vehicle

This is a fine looking plane from Indiana Jones and is really easy to build. It includes 4 Mini-figs, a petrol tanker and even a secret compartment between the two cockpits.  My 7 year old son was able to assemble this kit without any assistance from me. We found it very sturdy to play with and have even dropped it a few times without anything breaking.

We highly recommended this toy for any Indiana Jones LEGO collector.

Why should you choose an Indiana Jones toy?

Indiana Jones 4 was released last year and DVD sales have been dramatic. The Indiana Jones LEGO set has been a favourite among children for the past few years due their interesting design and durability. LEGO is a great way of helping your child to use their imagination during play rather than just being sat like a zombie in front of video games. Indiana Jones toys were one of the top seller last Christmas and we expect this to improve this year.
