Two standee proposals submitted to Lucasfilm; one as a sample of the
counter display used in France to promote the scratch-and-win lottery
tickets. I've included this here as I have no idea whether these were
ever put into production.
other a mock-up of a proposed standee for the release of the Young
Indiana Jones Chronicles to VHS. It also cleverly morphed Young
Indy into adult Indy and vice-versa depending on which angle it was
This is an update that will long be remembered and talked about! Nick
has acquired an amazing Galoob Micromachines unproduced playset. Not
the plans - tha actual set! Nick adds "This item was a ONE off
prototype that was presented to Galoob toy company a number of years
ago. It has a number of action features - when you press the Rock, the
Tanker car flips. The Golden Idol triggers a falling wall and much more".

Let's travel back to 1991... non-sport trading cards were huge and everything
was licensed to become a set of cards. So of course we'd need educational,
fun cards from Pro Set for THE YOUNG INDIANA JONES CHRONICLES.
But would you like to see original art used to create those cards? How
about the concepts for the box and packages? Well, look no further....
Everyone remember the tin cards produced for STAR WARS by Metallic
Impressions in the early 1990's? Bet you didn't know that they
proposed doing a set for Indiana Jones! A mock-up of a circular
tin with 3 cards was submitted by their marketing department to Lucasfilm.
After that - they had 'top men' looking after it. :)

Back in early 2003, Paramount and Lucasfilm were trying to decide how
best to release the very anticipated 'other' Trilogy. The DVD market
was maturing and people expected more than just the 'base' films.
mock ups were done that basically resemble the final release. But what
most people have never seen is the proposed box set - THE LIMITED
EDITION DVD COLLECTION .
LIMITED EDITION DVD COLLECTION set was to
have come in a large format tan box that contained 2 expansive trade
paperback books about the making of the INDIANA JONES Trilogy.
The DVD's would have been in a gift box that come out of the tan box
by pulling on a black strap. A music CD was to be included that contained
the best of the John Williams scores.
the idea never progressed past the mock-up stage, there is still hope.
With the release of a fourth film combined with material that was removed
from the late 2003 release (deleted scenes, making of TV specials, etc)
there is more than enough to still move ahead with this cool set!
