I got 2 new HUGE posters/banners this week.
The first one I believe is a subway banner.
The second one is a big double sided poster.

I got an Indiana Jones pachinko machine today.
It's no pinball machine, but it is fun and the video clips are cool.

I love that machine! Guests never get tired of feeding it balls... I got so hooked I also bought a Star Wars and Lord of the Rings machine!

Now you have to buy the other version - different artwork/color background

It's great! My daughter and I have been playing it the last 2 days trying to see all the animation sequences. It's more fun than I thought it would be. I might go ahead and get the other one now.
Also I would love to get a slot machine too!

Just got back from Disney Land today.
Scored a few Indy items.



I also got 2 t-shirts (still packed up) and the Mickey as Indy Big Fig. (Not my pic, I didn't have enough room, so Disney is shipping it)

But I picked up a bigger score after we left California and arrived in Arizona...

A copy of the Last Crusade Graphic Adventure game arrived today, scored on eBay for a pittance. No box, and for the Commodore Amiga (!), but I really just wanted the "Grail Diary" clue book.

indyclone: Congrats on the media kit and thanks for describing its contents. Looking forward to seeing more photos of it in your collection thread!

ROB: Cool gift set. Are you going to drink that vodka or will it stay in the box?

Tash: Nice score on the Grail Diary clue book. I want that thing.

I think it will display better if I take it out of the box. The shot glasses are pretty cool too.
I'm not a big drinker, but I may open it up on a special occasion. Or maybe just to get a woman drunk

Part of the reason went to Disneyland, is because after we left there, we drove to Arizona. There I bought a set of 16 original Indiana Jones posters, each professionally framed with Tru Vue Conservation grade 99% UV protection glass. We had to pack them carefully so they would survive the 1,600 mile trip.
I am very happy to say they survived the trip in one piece. No broken glass.

I Love the Pepsi Poster! I used to have it myself way back when. I was so mad when the VHS tape came out and it had that Coke Commercial at the beginning! i was like "TRAITORS!!!!!"

(Yes, I'm a Pepsi-holic not a COKE-addict!)

I loved that commercial, when I first saw it on VHS! I must admit that this is the only Pepsi product in my home. I am a recovering Coca-Cola addict. I haven't had a Coke all month.

I also bought some record frames and they work perfectly on my Laser Discs. So I had to buy a few more Laser Discs. Now I need more frames...





Does anyone know if there was a "Special Collectors Edition" for Last Crusade?

paramount released this, but for a short time. then the ofinal widescreen versions were released, because by that time the laser disc market was releasing everything in widescreen format, so in essence the laser disc pictured above was limited. when i worked at suncoast motion picture company, the one widescreen version is what we carried.

A few new things arrived in the mail from ACME this morning!
The sketch of the Ark is made out of metal and is bigger than I thought it would be!
Sorry for all the pictures, but I thought some of you might want to see the detail.

Love the aluminum Ark sketchplate. Did you also get the giant version (limited to only 25 made)? The framed version is hanging above our arcade area and I think it is amazing! I had to reinforce the wall hooks due to it's weight (25+ lbs).

I would like to get the larger one also, but not quite yet. At the price they are asking, I don't think it will be sold out soon.
Glad to hear you have it!
I would love to see your collection sometime. I imagine it is like Disneyland for Indy Fans!

Nice. Nice job with the coin, Tash. The photo, itself, is also very nice and it's just a nice post, overall. It's not only nice but swell, as well.

That Marvel hardcover of "Raiders" is on my want-list. Very jealous, Rob!

All of us should arrive, unannounced, at Lester's place over the holidays. Play Indy pinball & Indy pachinko machines while sampling some Crystal Head Vodka. (Bring your gift set with those special shot glasses. )

Then we'll take his newly acquired Indy truck out for a spin in the snow!
