Sideshow is releasing a limited edition print

Sideshow is releasing an exclusive Acme Archives print by Fabian Schlaga and Trevor Grove featuring Harrison Ford and is limited to 295 copies. Pre-orders begin Monday, June 27th at 10am!
I would have rather seen them release a new figure or environment, but I'm glad they are still supporting Indiana Jones.

Looks like somebody modelled the pose in costume and Ford/Indys face was painted with it. Just getting that vibe as doesn't quite look like Fords body, and the trousers and shirt are the wrong colour). This happens a lot now, but it's a cool way to get something different to images we've all seen many times before.

Is it a new pose? It looks awfully familiar somehow, but I'm largely coming up trumps when looking for a precedent.

Perhaps I have this in mind? (Far from an exact match, mind.)

It' not a new pose. There's a B&W Raiders publicity still I think with Ford in that pose. Maybe wrong, but I've seen this done elsewhere quite recently, as I say it's a good way to get something slightly different to what everybody has seen before, and have new artwork.

No, I found the photo it's based from. The body is correct (but not the jacket, or face) in comparison to the photo. A different facial expression in the artwork compared to the still.

Not a criticism, just observing. It's nice to have different art.

Did you manage to find the whole thing? This is all I found:



Anyway, it's not all that different from what Struzan was doing on the novel covers, and the Dark House cover artists as well, frequently adapting publicity stills or stills from the films into the basis for new drawings. As a non-interested party, I don't see any problem with it.

Sideshow describes it as a Temple of Doom art print. I hardly ever see any pictures of Indy with a jacket on in TOD. Maybe this is right after he caught the egg.

I thought the pose looked familiar also, so I checked my 6 plate collection, and one plate has a similar pose.

Nothing about this reads "Temple of Doom" to me, especially the pattern on the walls. Curious.

I was wondering that too, I saw their contest already had five hundred entries or so so Im not holding out a lot of hope.
