Unproduced Playset

Here you see some photos of an amazing unproduced Galoob Micro Machines playset.

Nick, the lucky owner of this playset, has the following to add:
"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".

The artist responsible for the Indy illustration on the Micro Machines box is Jayson Palmer. Palmer also designed a Box for this toyline which was eventually not used by Galoob.

Here on the left you can view Palmer's original illustration, used as inspirations for the lighter/orange Indy Micro Machines Box released in 1995.
