Well of the Souls

The Adventures of Indiana Jones Action Playset

About This Vintage Toy

Produced by Kenner in 1982, the Indiana Jones Well of the Souls Action Playset was the second and more expensive place at released to retail stores in 1982. This particular playset has become hard to find on the current collectors market. It can be costly for collectors to complete or find complete due to its small and rare accessories. The set included many great features like a breakaway wall, crypt cover sarcophagus with engraved Star Wars reference, and of course, the ark of the covenant itself. That’s correct; you can find a carved image of R2-D2 and C-3PO on the sarcophagus as Kenner wanted to creatively tight in the Star Wars line that was highly successful just a few years prior. The playset also included a handful of snakes and other archaeology accessories, which helped reenact the iconic movie scene from the 1981 Raiders of the Lost Ark film. Along with several torches and a mommy, this set was detailed, making it one of the most sought-after playsets of all time.

Original Packaging

Packaging Front

The original packaging was a rectangular box that featured live-action marketing images of the Indiana Jones Well of the Souls action playset. 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.
