Just sharing these past works with one of my fav figure, I think it was my first hot toys in fact... Anyway, the headsculpt was a lot criticized, it could be better for sure, but with the right angle there is something of harrison Ford, definitely... I tried to recreate various moments of that iconic trilogy, hope you'll like!

Great pics! I love the perspective on all of these too. These classroom pics look so good, and that fight scene is a blast! Made me want to go re-watch all 3 movies.

I love this film, and this captures it perfectly.  Thanks for posting.

In July I am going to "an afternoon with Robert Watts" who was an Executive Producer on Raiders, as well as all 3 of the original Star Wars movies.  Should be a great afternoon.

Beautiful customs and photography. What specific iteration of Indiana Jones is this? I had one (from Sideshow?) that I gave to a friend after getting the HT Deluxe years ago, but haven't really done too much with either one. But I realize there have been a several versions from several companies.

Nice!

That sculpt does looks better when he's in Prof mode. Interesting choice of Stone Cold to stand in for Pat Roach. Nobody I know of did a decent sculpt that looks like that character though.

CHEERS!

Thanks mate! that classroom shooting is a bit of a mix between the two classroom scenes that occurs in raiders of the lost ark (only writing "facts" on the blackboard), and the one in the last crusade with the tomb layout n his hesitation moment spelling "neolithic"...

Thanks! I'm glad you always mention the fun aspect of my lil "sessions" cause it's really the core, I might not always get good result in final images, but when I unbox my figures, the only purpose is having fun, sandbox style lol

Thanks a lot! I hope you'll give us some feedback about this insane afternoon you're gonna have! Starwars and indiana jones are such pillars of our popculture! give us some news about it please!

Thanks bro! it's the hot toys DX version, coming with the egyptian alternative outfit. The likeness is not good under all angles but it's definitely not as bad as what I read on the web about it, people rely way too much on crappy pictures. The PERS system for the eyes is an awesome feature that offers a lot of potential of posing and expressions, I wish hot toys gets back to it for all their figures...

Thanks! In fact I think the casted shadow from his hat doesn't help getting a sparkle of life in his eyes except with specific lighting and poses, which makes him much more interesting once the hat is off. I still regret that I didn't buy the "treasure hunter" headsculpt which was a very solid alternative, what is missing on hot toys headsculpt is the signature grin of Harrison Ford, which they finally captured on their han solo disguised in stormtrooper.

I would love to have a pat roach headsculpt, just as "andre the giant" and a few wrestlers from the past... Phicen could easily provide that with their naked bodies like Kaustik once did...

Lil update, most of you guys have seen these shots already, but to carry on with dr Jones adventures... Some classic sequences from "The Last Crusade"

Lord Mac Donald and his charming assistant are here to see the tapestries!

Oh man! These are great. Love all the effects. And that last one, with the lower light giving the impression of them being lit by the flames is perfect. Really well done set up. Lord MacDonald and his lovely assistant are very cool, too. She's charming, indeed. I honestly don't remember seeing these before. Excellent work.

Love the update. Last Crusade is my favorite Indiana Jones movie (although I do like all three -- I'm not counting Crystal Skull as canon). And you do photograph that DX head sculpt a lot better than I do.

It's really funny you mention a sandbox. I reckon I'm not the only one with some very early memories recalling playing in a sandbox. Sand in my clothes, in my hair (when I still had it)...sand everywhere and it was always genuine fun.

Hell, I even had fun playing in a sandbox with my kids. What a Face

When the hobby slips past fun and moves to obsession, it's time to move on.

Thanks a lot mate! I had so much fun building that "diorama" (it's more a movie set than a real diorama tho)

Thanks GF! I couldn't choose between the last crusade and the raiders of the lost ark, but agreed they are my favorites (and no way I count the crystal skull thing as canon)
About shooting that indy I really started enjoying him with ascending light, otherwise the shadow of his hat kills the life in his eyes, with the PERS system it's quite a shame...

Rogerbee wrote:Very nice! It's odd how the DX works with everything except the fedora. My Henry also went through a lot of incarnations before I settled on the best recipe.

Totally agreed! When I first tried other caps and hats on him he was much more recognizable than with the iconic fedora... weird!

Haha, just like my memories, I had no proper sand box but my dad used to buy some construction sand in large bags and he provided me a mountain of sand in our backyard to dig tunnels for my lil gijoes... I spent countless hours at that lol

A couple more shots you already have seen but I had forgotten to post them here, I'm not as happy with the digital edit as on some of my other works... Hope you'll like GF, more last crusade!

Very nice Last Crusade shot! Was this bluescreen/greenscreen plus background, or a curved printout? By the way, shouldn't it be "I just remembered my Charlemagne"?

Was green/blue screen yes, but natural light though... And yeah thanks for the exact line, I confess I know these movies by heart in my native french language from my childhood, now when I try to watch them in original version I feel like I am missing something lol

Lucky you, when I saw it I passed, then forgot, then couldn't find it anymore, big regrets for that one, it looked really good and had that "signature" grin of harrison ford.

These are just too brilliant! And GREAT choices with all the scenes you picked to recreate!

I keep meaning to say that your userpic is perfection -- sexy professor, my fave, haha.  My biggest childhood crushes are Harrison Ford as Han Solo and...Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. ;D

And when I saw the title of this thread, I immediately thought 'WHICH Dr. Jones??'  so it tickled me to see that you did indeed have both of them there. :'D

@blackpool I was wondering where your awesome avatar came from! So glad @skywalkersaga dug up this thread.  I agree with him, great backgrounds!  

I wonder if anyone uses Action Figures to create their storyboards.  They'd easily put the artists out of work, so maybe best they don't notice how good it looks! LOL

I'm really sorry I missed these posts friends, thanks a lot for the kind words on my avatar! I might redo that sequence better, the suit is not great, and the background was very poor as well lol

You just gave me the mojo to shoot him again in his classroom! Thanks a lot!

These are awesome. The only critique I'd have and it's a very minor one, but certainly one known to anyone who like me, wears a fedora regularly, is that no-one in that day would have put his hat down on it's brim. This can deform the brim. They were always turned over and put down on their crown. This being said, I never paid attention to this detail while watching the movies and only a crusty old purist fedora wearer like me would likely know this.

Having made my one and only critique, the pics are just excellent and fun to look at. I hope to see more of the intrepid Dr. Jones from you in the future.

Excellent! I love it. Looks like a beautiful screen cap from a real film. And you even managed to get some light in the eyes in the last one (a difficulty with the PERS head sculpt), while going for moody realism in the first two.
