Very sad news. Not just the maker of the original film jacket, but a pioneer in Indy fandom, back in the day when the word 'cosplay' hadn't even been invvented. RIP.

I like that it's a bit more substantial than the lamb, but still looks like it can go with the gear. I wouldn't mind having a ToD in this hide as well.

I don't dislike it now, but for a long time I didn't like the young Indy sequence in Last Crusade. I hated the way he seemed to aquire many of his 'Indy' trademarks in one misadventure like that.
