Like most customizers here, I am never satisfied with my work and am constantly going back and changing things. I made an Indy out of a GI Joe and posted it here last summer. I can't even look at that figure now.

This figure is done in the style of the vintage Star Wars line that is so well detailed and movie accurate. I took the head from one of those Han Solo figures and attached it to a KOTCS Indy. I lopped it off at the neck to keep the rotation of the head. The mushroom cap joint on Han is much bigger than on the Indy so I figured it would be easier to do it that way. The Harrison Ford likeness on that Han is one of the reasons I wanted to do this custom in the first place.

The other reason is that I always wished the Indy figures had ball jointed legs. I took the hips and upper legs from an A-Team Bradley Cooper that i used for a James Bond custom I wasn't too thrilled with.

Getting the colors right was the hardest part but the most fun. i don't think any Indy figure so far has got the right color scheme. The only figure i found that gets the colors of Indy's clothes right is the Disney park exclusive with the jacket they made a while back. Hasbro and Kenner didn't ever come close.

So this is my Vintage Style Indiana Jones figure and one of my favorite customs to date. Hope you enjoy.

Great looking Indy and the HS and ball jointed hips work great with this figure.
