Really, RA? I thought that might have been a screen grab.

As I said, the differences are minute.

I've heard tell that Indiana Jones actually wore a leather cowboy hat; there may be some truth to that as well.

As long as it's a brown hat, correct?

My main sugestion would be Geneva Roth:


This grail is hand thrown ceramic and has actual gold leaf in the basin. Its got a nice look and doesn't suffer from a thick neck or wide basin. For the price of just over $100 its a terrific replica. It is most like the grail that lays on it's side twoard the end, when Elsa knocks it into the chasm. You can tell this because of the coloring and the lip.

Also this grail shows up often lately:


This one is again hand made for each customer only this one is actually made of wood. It too has an accurate shape, but no gold leaf. The outside coloring of the grail is also a little more accurate here. This is more like the grail you see in the Knight's shrine, before Indy actually picks it up.

Reelart's are again, very inaccurate. I've actually heard people say they just threw them in the trash.



Hopefully this short guide will answer some of your questions about what to buy. Please contribute reviews and photos of your own so we can have a definitive what's what of Indy gear.

I know this is a two-year-old post Deckard, but do you have any idea how to track down the second grail you listed here? I can't find it anywhere!

Which adventurebilt is better? and jacket

So, you said that the normal adventurebilt can take a beating, and stay in good condition, does the deluxe do this just as well, and where can i find a cowhide indy jacket, ive been saving up for a wested, but i dont want it to tear because its a softer leather, and what about goatskin, how tough are those?

I'd check these guy's jacket out. I've bought pants from them before and did not regret it. http://www.makeyourownjeans.com/inde...oducts_id=1660

The original Raiders jackets, the ones used for filming key scenes, were made from lambskin (expensive and maybe not as durable as you want). Wested makes (whom made the originals, I would check them first, cowhide is probably your best bet for price and durability and price) Lambskin and cowhide (skin ??). As far as Adventurebilt hats, I have a a Steve Delk Raiders replica and it's FANTASTIC !! I wear it as much as possible, it takes a beating, I get dust on it, bash it, everything GREAT HAT !!! My only knock against it is the felt is not as thin as some of the original Raiders hats from the movie and there's no way to replicate , say, the hat from the streets of Cairo without a very thin felt. The felt used in making the hats in Raiders has been discountinued and hasn't been available from Herbert Johnson since before TOD. I paid $360 plus shipping but that was shortly before KOTCS came out so I think he's getting more per hat order and I hear he's retiring. Hope this helps

eBay. Cheap sword at a not so cheap price. Wall hanger. Not a functional sword. Nice and shiny look-a-like, but that's it.

My shelf needs something new and shiny on it.

Any recommendations (for or against) Staff of Ra Headpiece makers?

(EDIT: Specifically, recent recommendations - there's quite a bit of turn-over in the community and 2-3 year old recs aren't that useful.)

Indy trousers

Hi Indyheads,
if anybody is interested, Asda are currently stocking a style of men's cotton trousers which look almost exactly like the ones Indy wears. They have the button flies and, most importantly, the scalloped style flaps on both back pockets. Asda are selling two colours: sand yellow and an odd wine colour. I bought a pair in sand yellow and plan to dye them into a taupe colour, but for 12 they're great value. I mught go and get another pair.

I had a look at the catalogue. They are nice looking trousers, especially for the price, but I don't think they are close enough to those worn by Indy. They are fairly slim fit, whereas Indy's are somewhat baggy and well pleated. I bought a couple of pairs from Wested and they are comfy and look great, but of course more expensive.

Wow, this thread is super helpful - thanks!

I'm thinking of doing Indy for Halloween this year and was looking for some online resources to put the costume together. Looks like everything I need is right here.

Which holster?

I've just bought the Denix replica Webley (1942). Any advice regarding which holster to go for? The Webley holsters from Todds, WPG, SOFmilitary etc look way too long, ( it has a four inch barrel ) I'm wondering if it'll fit the smaller, S&W holster....

The only Webley revolver I know Denix make is the Mk. IV which has a 5" barrel. The whole gun is only an inch shorter than the Mk. VI, and should be fine in a holster designed for a 'large frame' revolver.

Yeah that's the one, don't know why I had it in my head that it's from '42. You are right, it's 5 inches from the drum to the tip of the barrel.
Thanks for the tip
