Arabian Horse

The Adventures of Indiana Jones Action Figure

About This Vintage Toy

Produced by Kenner in 1983 as a part of series 2, the Arabian horse was packaged on a card back similar to an action figure, but it’s not necessarily often considered an action figure, however, the topic is somewhat debatable due to its original card back. The horse featured the ability to have a “galloping action”, by squeezing in the buttons located under the saddlebags on the saddle. The horse would then simulate a “galloping action” during play. The action figures’ articulation of knee joints and hip angles were designed to allow the action figure to properly mount the horse. This would appear to be the same horse model that was previously used in one of Kenners other recent toy lines from 1980, the Legend of The Lone Ranger, which had the same exact articulation model and not figures line, which was carried over to the Indiana Jones toy line the following year.


Original Packaging

Packaging Back

The original card back featured 9 human action figures, 3 playsets, and a horse action figure available to purchase. NOTE: Collectors that have the original card back offer increased value to the collectible. (MWC = Mint with card) If the card back still has a bubble intact, that also increases the value. If the action figure is factory sealed on the original card, (MOC= Mint on card) then collectors can obtain the most value from that particular item.
