WHAT? No snakes?! Looks like the focus is more of Indy in the first half of the film. He's got the Arab garb and staff of Ra with Headpiece but there's no Ark in sight. No matter, he'll soon join the OTHER Indys (picture from my earlier post "Indiana Jones and the attack of the clones" haha

The headsculpt looks great!!! One problem though, doesnt quite look Harrison Ford, more like his brother or somthing. Hot Toys is making hard on themselves in regards to their high level of work that if it isnt spot-on people like me nit pic. 5 years ago the scuplt would've blown me away. Even though its a must have 110%. Again, love your blog..

Nah, the head sculpt is not right. Better the sideshow one with a repaint and using some of the items and clothes of this one. Also the hat looks too funny.
