Indiana Jones Cargo Truck

Before I even knew this line existed, I bumped into a Toys R Us promo showing this truck for half the price. I was a little reluctant about taking it home, but an angel voice told me to take it. And it was one of the smartest moves I ever made.

The box itself is artistic. Well... it IS hasbro. Money talks... and... you know the rest.

The Mercedes-Benz LG 3000 used in "Raiders Of The Lost Ark".

Some views of this very fine piece of machinery. A workhorse for the German army during WWII.

The hood comes off to reveal troops benches or cargo space.

Even the undercarriage was target of some attention to detail. Again... this is hasbro at work.
And an important franchise. Indy.

One of the movies "reenactments" features. The whip dragging action. As the truck goes forward, the whip coils around the axle hence pulling the figure.

Scale shot.
The back...
The benches are too short to sit figures, and it IS called "cargo truck".

And some more angles of this great vehicle. The details are fine and the plastic´s quality is tip top.

    I can see them as fine vehicles, but my cobra and Joes are to much hi-tech to use them. But made fine toys.
