I wish I had room to spread my collection out over the space it deserves, this is really cool. Nice job. I dunno how you convinced your wife to go along.

More pictures for chirst sake! You can't just post a few of those and expect us to be satiated!

We need indivudal pics of each section. You honestly can't put that much love and devotion into a collection and only allow the visitors to your actual room the ability to peruse each section closely. I think we, the members of the Raven, are entitled to more!!!!

Now deliver!

What one area would folks like to see more of? I do not have time to photograph each item. And posters are off limits right now as there are over 200+ of them and they are being flattened right now (to be stored in architect blueprint drawers).

Let the requests begin!

200 posters! Hot damn!

Any more exclusive or foreign items would be cool to see. Or, pictures of shelves and what each holds. Or the pieces that are your favorites.

Take pictures of your harder to find items. The indy figures that anyone can buy aren't of much interest. Snap your chest/dresser? that has your 12" Henry Sr., your grail ,and your fertility idol, for example.

As the museum becomes more organized (we're kinda forced to be on top of things now that visitors have become a regular thing) we though we'd post stuff many may not have seen before.

We'll tease here with a few photos and show expanded versions over on our site at throwmetheidol.com (when there are too many photos for any one item).

Today we'll start with the Hasbro advance gift sent to VIP's in April 2008.



This large 'crate' is quite cool. As you can see it looks like a wooden box that contains 'treasure'. When you life the lid looks like a crate full of Indy's mementos.



When you lift the flaps to get to the insides it plays the familiar John Williams 'Raiders March'. Inside are example of ALL the toys that were released initially in May 2008. There is a letter from Hasbro explaining what this all is and a cool CD containing high resolution images for print and web use.

I guess that would be up to Ed to decide if it's something he wants to cover

Hehe. KiKi_Kat if you see this, I'm kidding!

To the best of my knowledge the kits were the same. The form letter included lists off the items contained -- and the kits were sent from an advertising agency to the VIP's. I can't see why there would be different versions.

No, me either since there was a check list. I just wondered about the grab box style tha tsome companies have used before to spread their products out...Of course I usually have seen that with smaller companies.

That box is amazing.
