Disney Indiana Jones Mods Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:5743  
Name:Disney Indiana Jones Mods
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Indiana Jones
Creator:Spiderdood90  
Date Added:January 17, 2008
Base Figure:Disney exclusive Indy figure
Height:7.00 inches
I recently bought this exclusive from an eBayer in the US and beforehand I was aware of the issues this figure had; the big one been articulation or the lack of it.

So basically I set out to correct it, by adding-

* Bicep swivels; arms dipped in boiling water to soften plastic and a clean cut throught the centre of the bicep, screws were used to make the pegs.

* Thigh swivels; same as above.

* The neck peg was basically a rectangle and prevented his head been able to rotate at all, so I took my dremell and reshaped it to form a regular peg as seen on Marvel Legends for example. Plugged the peg hole with apoxie sculpt and jammed the head back on, gave it a twist around and let it set.

The added artic makes a world of difference, just see the pics below.

Enjoy!

Thanks guys
Hey Hemble,
Yeah the screws not only keep the joints tight but they ensure they'll be no breakage. The screws I used were about 2 inch long for the thighs and an inch for the biceps (a rough guess) and they've got a mushroom shaped top that fits a flat head screw driver and about half of the actual screw is smooth, not cork screwed through out.
Hope that helps, not sure what the proper name is though
Btw I loved Your Indy repaint, you did a brilliant job and it's inspired me to give mine ago.

Man that is spectacular to say the least excellent job.
What type of screws did you use?
And does the screws keep the joints tight?
Cheers
