A couple years ago when Formative was still selling 1:6 scale military figures at retail they had a boxed figure with a head sculpt that looked quite a bit like Harrison Ford. I picked it up for that reason, intending to do an Indy custom. Head sculpt
I put the head on a Super Articulated GI Joe body. I had a decent likeness of the boots, pants, shirt and a workable belt. I had a whip from one of the Joe Adventure Team sets and a stand-in pistol and holster, both of which were relatively easy pieces to replace if I wanted. I also had a shoulder bag from another Formative set that was kind of plain but I was going for a toy and not a high end piece so it worked.
I never found a decent jacket or hat substitute that I liked so the figure sat around unfinished. This week with the sale at Target I decided to get the talking Indy figure for his outfit. Well, hat and jacket mostly, but I ended up using the whole outfit for now. I added the shoulder bag I had and the Idol relic from the Belloq figure as the scale was a little better than the one in the 1:6 Indy set.Indiana Jones
I didn't take a photo of it last night but I also have a custom 1:6 scale Grail Diary that I picked up from Mark Poon a couple of years ago. I'm thinking of either customizing the shoulder bag to look a little more accurate or see if the other 12" Indy figure goes on clearance and rob that set for it's bag. I may also go back to the pants I had before. They're lighter in color and with a little work to add pockets and belt loops they might be a little more accurate.
I'm also contemplating taking a shot at a custom whip. Just because I think it would be fun to do and having a scale 10' whip would rock.
Otherwise I'm pretty happy with this figure. It's not a $90 Sideshow piece but it's a great toy that you can take out and get a little dirty or whatever.
