I am tempted to get the Sideshow ark, but am still undecided.
Anyone have both so we can have side by side pictures?

I can finally answer my own question.
I didn't realize there was such a size difference.

I finally opened opened all six of my Sideshow 12" figures two weeks ago and put them on display. I don't have room to put their exclusive accessories on display with them. I wish there was an Ikea store within reasonable driving distance; I'd love to have a Detolf.

Anyway, I was really impressed with the figures and am seriously considering getting another Toht in the near future in order to display one with that fantastic melted head.

I was also thinking it'd be cool to make a custom miniature copy of that 1938 Life Magazine issue that the figure could peer over while spying on Doktor Jones.

You have incredible restraint, Jack. If I had 6 Sideshow Indy figures I couldn't wait a few seconds before starting to open them! At the moment I only have the Raiders Indy.

If you get another Toht, there are people over on the Sideshow Freaks board who are switching his clothes with the Dragon In Dreams Becker plainclothes SD figure, as they're apparently better quality, and fit Toht well. The overcoat, however, isn't dark enough for some.

Yeah, I tend to procrastinate opening stuff especially when I don't have adequate display space. Here are my Sideshow figures in one of the Star Wars figure cabinets I built. I had to put the SW figures from this shelf in storage for the time being (Death Star II scenes and the final showdown between Luke, Vader, and the Emperor).

I had never heard of this DiD Becker figure. It looks like it'd be perfect as one of Toht's compatriots. The overcoat almost looks brown to me. I agree, it does need to be a shade darker.

Oh, and the LIFE Magazine issue is from November 1936, not 1938. Raiders took place in '36, Last Crusade in '38.

That Sicherheitsdienst Becker is loaded up with all manner of useful accessories for diorama building. The working umbrella looks like a work of art, and with a different handle could be a good prop for Henry Sr.
