Sideshow Premium Format Indy
« on: April 9, 2008, 03:08 PM »
Looks like the premium format is confirmed (maybe it was before, I'm not so much for the details in advance).  Sideshow still has the teaser photo up but cooltoyreview has got a picture of the full statue up here.

I'd been really hoping for the iconic pose from the streets of cairo with the gun in one hand, whip in the other.  This is nice and I like that they worked the idol into it (I thought it would be included with the exclusive version instead) but the pose is kinda blase and doesn't seem nearly as iconic as it could have been.  It's just sorta there.  I mean I really don't recall Indy standing still with the idol in his hand, so a static pose like this just doesn't seem relevant. 

I'm not sure if I'll opt in on this piece or not.   :-\
