Indy books are great for learning more about Indy's world.

I love the novels and the role playing stuff. I especially like the Complete Making of... book, as it's one Indy collectable you shouldn't be without.

Indy toys are great for displaying.

The Sideshow 12" figures are cool.

Medicom has one decent 12" figure (ironically it's Mutt!)

I have at least one of everything in the Hasbro 3 3/4" line. They were very addictive (much more appealing to me than the vintage Kenner figures).

Indy Lego is my current addiction. It's a complete change of style from the much more realistic action figures, but the more you look at it, the more it grows on you.

I would say my Mola Ram figure....because that's the one that took me the longest to get.

I'd have to say my "Todd's" bullwhip.
Whenever people come over to my place, especially new people, they always ask about it and want to play with it.
Easy conversation starter.

*I don't really know if that is considered to be a collectible though.

For me, i'd say its the growing media collection. From my Laserdiscs of the movies, to the VHS tapes and the DVDs.

Heck, I'm totally fine with my Fertility Idol Bank!

I don't have anything in my collection that would be called a collectible since most are just books and toys... even my prop replicas are mostly my work.

As I was reading thru the full thread, I was waiting until the end to add my Wested as my favorite. More gear than collectible, but it's authentic Indy. I wear it all the time, so it's not just collecting dust on a shelf or sitting in a box somewhere. Also love my Joe Strain whip, but far and away the jacket is my favorite item.

I also like the Raiders poster that's in my office at work. Sets the tone.

As for a few of your questions and thoughts:

I had to do serious distressing to get mine looking right. Started with acetone to get the dark dye out, then light sandpaper in the right spots and lots of crunching it up. I even slept in it a few nights and used it as a pillow a few others. Have you read the "distressing" threads in the Gear section?

There are designs for each movie, two, in fact, just for Raiders. The "Authentic Raiders" is a very skinny cut. Looks 80s. Mine is Raiders but with a roomier cut.

My vintage Kenner playsets: Streets of Cairo-Well of Souls-Map Room. Always wanted these as a kid and I did not get them until I was an adult/big kid. My neighbor had them and I was always envious. So when I finally got them years later I appreciated them more. If I had to chose one... Well of Souls. Hands down.

Ya know, It might be possible to get those creases out with a drymount machine. I wouldn't actually drymount it though (which would require permanently adhering it to a foam board). Just place it on a regular piece of foam board without glue and see if it sucks it tight. I would definitely try it with something else beforehand though.

My personal favorite item is an almost life size plastic Indy poster I picked up in Brazil. It was used for the release of Indy on DVD.

I wouldn't mess with it, though I've wondered if they could be ironed out.

I don't know, I'm not sure I want to answer until I get my map in...

Like Montana, I find the making of books great things to have around. I like my Bantam novels too.

And a translator card from Temple of the Forbidden Eye.
