Holy heck, Alina!!! This is absolutely phenomenal! A priceless find worthy of an Indy adventure itself.

I will have to carefully examine and enjoy these images over a very long period of time, you've given us a staggering amount to digest here.

Simply marvelous, what an incredible feat!!

My personal favorite has to be the Cigarette Girl!!! That was an amazing addition!!!

Thank you again for sharing your extraordinary, prolific work!!

WHOO!

Wow, thanks Lance! I feel honored you enjoy the figures...

But again, honor to whom honor is due: Some of the designs and custom recipes come from other people and I just tried my hand on them - case in point being the cigarette girl, which was first built by Tommy Lin and I followed the instructions with my own figure. Others were suggested by resident Raveners and others still were built by me from scratch.

Again, my thanks for the kind words!

Next up: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles and the Expanded Universe

Best,
Daniel

And as promised, here's the list of the official figures and my customs for Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - the only one of the films I've completed so far (mainly because there are a lot less memorable characters to customize). So, here it goes:

140) Dovchenko in US Uniform

141) George "Mac" McHale

142) Indy in Shirt
143) Irina Spalko
144) Colonel Jones in T-Shirt (otherwise known as Interrogation Indy)

145) FBI Agent Paul Smith

146) FBI Agent Taylor

147) General Robert Ross

148) Dean Charles Stanforth

149) Indy in Grey Suit

150) Russian Agent (that's K from MIB with a hat, so not really a custom and more of a "re-imagining")

151) Mutt Willams with Hat

152) Mutt Williams in Leather Jacket

Lance, inky... Thank you both again for the kind words...

There are only a few finished figures left and then it's back for me to the work bench - hope you'll like them too!

Best wishes,
Daniel

You're very welcome, Daniel, and I'm glad you made it here!

WOW! ALL of your stuff is superb but I'm really amazed at your Young Indy figures (especially their little props like the journal and Old Indy's cane, etc.)! They are so special & unique that it's hard to pick a favourite! Schiller gave me a chuckle because he is Daniel Craig's character.

Is the Corey-Carrier-in-safari-outfit made partly out of a young Anakin Skywalker? Years ago, I had suggested using this kid for anyone wishing to build one but yours looks even better.

If you feel like it, post a picture of your Old Indy in the Old Indiana Jones Chronicles thread. It would make a nice addition.

Looking forward to seeing the rest! WUNDERBAR!

Thanks Stoo!
Yeah, I'm pretty pleased with the Young Indy results myself, if I may say so - especially since I found a plasticine figure which kind of resembled Sean Patrick Flanery (mainly the hair) and since I managed to put enough Green Stuff on a Peter Pan figures face to built a Remy

And yes, you're right: that's an Anakin for Corey Carrier - again with a lot of green stuff for the jacket and a dremeled down fireman's hat for the pith helmet. While the Empty Child ("Are you my mommy?") has a great outfit, I believe the figure's in a different scale.

I'll take you up on your offer and will put some better shots of the George Hall figure up in the Old Indy thread soon!

Thanks again!

Best wishes,
Daniel

Anakin was a complete guess on my part because I haven't bought any action figures since 1982! That said, I'd like to make my own Corey-Carrier-in-Egypt figure some day and am interested to know what would be the best way to build one. It seems that Anakin would be the best place to start. Danke! Hey, if you want to make some €xtra money, I'll pay you to make me one.

Glad you mentioned that, Daniel, because I'm crazy about pith helmets and my only quibble with your Corey figure is the headgear. (In the photo, it has the appearance of a Sherlock Holmes deer hunter cap!) I realize that you were probably aiming for his brimmed 'safari style' in East Africa but, to match that outfit, he needs his white topee in Egypt.

Now, I'm aware that these things are tiny and difficult to work with but it's rare that customizers here have achieved 'helmet perfection' with their Belloqs and Blumburtts (as great as their work is). In my opinion, the best attempt at a miniature pith helmet is Blumburtt's otter-tailed 'Wolseley' in post #999 by Jr.Jones. An honourable mention goes to Inky Skin's custom of Belloq's 'Bombay Bowler' in post #1584…for the thickness of the brim only.

Your headgear for Belloq looks similar to the same plastic one which a couple of other customizers have used (and is close enough, I suppose, but not perfect). For your Blumburtt, did you make his pith from putty?

ugh, the pith helmets... yeah, you really got me there... those were positively driving me mad!

For Belloq, I first tried building one out of Henry Sr.'s hat and it looked awful. Then I found out, like you mentioned, that some customizers used a GI Joe helmet which I had, so René's wearing that one now. For Blumburtt I made a cast from that helmet and it turned out a bit rougher, which I'm okay with (I'm not exactly a stickler for screen accuracy in this scale, you know - for me, they're supposed to be action figures with the emphasis on "action" ). And Corey's helmet, well, that was one of the first times I tried to use not an already existing action figure prop but to take a part of one of those rigid, Smurf-type figures. It could be better, I'll admit. I'll keep my eyes peeled for a better one

And yeah, sure, I'll build you a Henry Jr., if you like - let's talk

Best wishes and thanks again
Daniel

@ Lance: Fantastic! Thanks for the link!

@ Ron: thank you for your kind words - as I am pretty occupied at the moment job-wise I'm not sure when I will be able to continue, even though I itch for getting back to the workbank. When I have more figures to show, I'll post them here...

Best wishes
Daniel

My Club Obi-Wan Willie... part O-ring Buck Rogers Ardala, part Jedi Slave Leia, part GI JOE 25th anniversary Baroness, and a Willie Scott Hasbro Head, HEAVILY modified. The dress is a Barbie Happy Meal remnant, but I'm about to remake this, as the thighs, ankles and knees are articulated and sculpted underneath, and there's little room to maneuver her.





Alternate shots

Next up is Willie wearing Indy's tux, (she retains the fascinator and lipstick as she did in the movie until the conclusion of the wild raft slalom). She also needs a re-paint.




Rear shot



face shot



Here's a rarely seen one,and she is a W.I.P.( not woman in prison, work in progress)... Willie as seen in the luxurious robe and pj evening combo once settled into Pankot... she wears it up until she is dangled over the fryer as a would-be sacrifice)



Rear Shot:


Side View:



And lastly... Inky_skin made me a fantastic Willie over a year ago in disheveled Indian sacrifice garb as she escaped with Indy and Shorty from the Pankot diamond mines. Once the paint started to wear from my penchant of posing and repositioning the trio in their mine cart, I decided to add the sequin detail to her costume to cover up that my white paint did not blend with his as it should. I also sculpted a three-tier belt as seen in the movie, as the one Inky originally fashioned was madeof sculpey,and crumbled after a couple of handlings. (insert 'handling Willie' joke here )



Here are the three custom, still in-progress Willies I have made, plus Inky's awesome build with my paint additions. In addition to a club Indy and Lao Che, I want to have a more pose able temple Indy for the bridge and mine scenes, (Hasbro is severely limited below the waist). Club Indy will have to have a lot of G.I. JOE pieces, or else a figure closer to the 4 inch scale than Hasbro's I.J. line, in order to match the taller, longer-torso'd Willie. I focused on the Willie figs because she has the most costume changes by far, and each scene I have worked with either Raiders or torn shirt Indy, and Shorty both, but the lady looked wildly out-of-place in the static Hasbro incarnation... plus she is my favorite Indy Girl by far, and I enjoy looking at her in any form.

GREAT new Willie variants and an excellent repaint/touch up on Inky's marvelous custom.

Glad to see someone is out there keeping the customizing flame alive (along with Aliana Fox, of course.)

Terrific work, thanks for sharing.

BTW - do you intend to swap out "Robe Willie"'s Mara Jade head with the Hasbro version? You did a real nice job of repainting it to get rid of the jewelry, etc. (though I'm wondering what that is she's wearing on her head...?)
