12 inch Medicom Mutt Williams

Don't know if this was already brought up, but we saw Indy and Henry, and now it looks like they are going to be releasing Mutt as well.

Medicom Toys 12 inch Mutt Williams

First in hand images of Medicom's 12" Mutt. Like KOTCS Indy, looks a lot better than the prototype!

Of all the problems with Kingdom, Shia was probably one of the best parts(besides the fact that he was more important than Indy in the action scenes). That looks really good.

A little something for you MUTT haters




I'm not sure about the likeness yet..there are times when I look at it and it looks very much like shia..and other times when it is off a lot. Still a nice figure from a Great line

Oh man that figure looks great! Looks just like Mutt I like that figure better than the KOTCS Indy. Only problem is it doesn't have the hat




Thanks for sharing pics Tnswman

Nice figure! However at $100 or so for him and the fact that I have both Hasbro versions I think I'll pass. I'm gonna get Toht instead.

Nice shots, Tnswman. I got my Mutt today. It is a really nice figure. I think the likeness is really good. It might could use a repaint. My brother repainted the Hasbro Mutt and it looks a lot more like Shia, now.



Also, here's my Medicom Mutt with my WIP custom Medicom Indy.



I'm thinking of having Ben repaint Medi Mutt, too. I'll have to sleep on it.

BTW, the hands shown on Mutt in that picture are from the Medicom Indy.

I think that once you get a medicom figure, you will leave the others behind. I HAte even messing with my SS figures because the Medicom are more fun and much more solid.

Well said. Aside from the great look of the Sideshow toys, they are really cheap crap. It's the classic "reverse upper-tier" thing (like clothing in designer clothing stores. It's almost like carnival crap, but marketed as highly collectible.

I'll take the medicom body type over the Sideshow body type any day. I've also got that Mutt figure, but I don't display it. Actually, I only bought it because I landed it so cheap that it would've been foolish not to pick it up. It is a great fig though....

I have 2 of the SS Indy figures and they are both so loose that you can't pick them up without the limbs actually turning around backwards and such.

The appearance of Sideshow's workmanship is very good and they use materials that look very well. However, a Plastic whip that looks like a leather whip...Ain't a leather braided whip. Now, the Medicom whips are not works or art eather but some of the figure makers here are doing some darn top notch stuff.

Actually, I used to be VERY much against custom 12" figures until I weighed what Toys McCoy did with their Indy figure in the 90's ( using the real materials ) v.s. what SS does. Medicom is a good in-between and although the body's are a tad skinny, they are solid as heck. Not to mention that the sculpts actually look like the actors.

Don't get me wrong..I LOVE the SS Indy line. However, they are not the top quality productions that some of our guys here do. And the GORGEOUS sculpts are always ruined with the painting process.

The KOTCS Medicom figures are simply addictive!! I can't put my 2nd Indy down.

I love my Sideshow Indy, but not right out of the box. My bro and I did a lot of work to our SS Indy figures to get to the quality we wanted.

I'm not going to mess with the Medicom Mutt, but Medicom (2nd) Indy is going to get a lot of work. Planning on repainting the head, hat and jacket.

I don't think Sideshow is crap, but it's quality is getting worse as the prices go up.

There are definitely pros and cons to both companys' figures, but I have to agree with what has been said here. SS Indy looks great and, thankfully, mine doesn't have the loose joint issue, but Medicom's Indy definitely feels more sturdy and the body poses really nicely. I love the sculpt on SS Indy, but the paint really takes away from it. Medicom's on the other hand might not be as nice a sculpt (but it is nice) but the paint work is top notch on mine. I think Medicom oulled of the removable hat pretty well too. In the end, I am happy to won both.

The biggest downside to Medicom is the price. If they were asking the same as SS, I would diefintely be all over them. As it is, I only have the first Indy and Henry. I'd love to have the others, Mutt and KOTCS Indy looks great as does Young Indy.

Looks like a very solid figure. But is Mutt taller than Indy?

They are on the same body, but Mutt's pompadour makes him look a little taller, I think. In real life Harrison is not much taller than Shai.

medicom mutt & Indy

This is a question for those who own both the Medicom Mutt and Indy. Is the crystal skull accessory the same for both figures? In some pictures I've seen the jaw looks open and in others it looks closed. I was just wondering if the jaw moves or if there are variant skulls with the figures.
