I've posted this in a couple of other places, incl FBTB
, but what with the IJ4 movie being announced recently, thought there may be some renewed interest.
Thought I'd turn my hand to making some Indiana Jones
characters, but wanted to make them without adding any paint or decals. Some LEGO printing has been removed though on a couple of figs (in post-production in my image editing program!).
I know there is room for improvement especially Well of Souls Indy & Sallah (white ninja hoods or white turbans would be handy there), plus a blonde / tan hairpiece for Elsa and a black one for Marion, plus a printed suit for Toht - but utilising the pieces I have available I think there are some reasonable approximations.
I have a few more pieces since these shots were taken, so I may revise some of the figs in the coming weeks.

Raiders of the Lost Ark
Temple of Doom
The Last Crusade
In that original thread on FBTB, Vulture_Droid
described his version of Indy, which I duly constructed;
And here's how Toht
would look with a modified pilot torso (image manipulated with paint-shop pro)
I have also since found a grey hairpiece for Elsa Schneider that will look better than the current brown (but not as good as blonde). Don't suppose Leia's Bespin hairpiece has been produced in blonde?
I've also got some cowboy hats to replace Indy's Johnny Thunder hat, but it's doesn't look quite right either.
I guess the next step are a few vignettes, a few more characters and maybe some playset / scenes (but they're for another forum). I may also need to look at converting them all to fleshies, for which I might as well use a few custom decals if the face isn't yet available from LEGO in that colour.
