    Default Re: 1/4th quarter scale Indiana Jones figure - wip Diamond Select mod

    what i did to the hat was did it boiling hot water and then quickly reshape it and freeze it with cold water. risky, but its the only method thats helps it not go back to its original shape. so far a week in and its held its new shape.

    Did you use a blowdryer on the hat? That is at least the one thing I have to do to it if it ever sees the light of day.

    It's really not risky at all, I have use this method successfully for tons of warped and bent accessories, to loosen joints, and even completely reshape stuff. I know a lot of people swear by the hair dryer but, too me, that seems a lot more risky. I've never had any adverse effects from using the old boiling water trick. It's pretty quick, you normally don't have to leave the part in the water for very long, 10-20 seconds at most usually does the trick, and it heats evenly.

    really wanted a 1/4th indy in my collection. unfortunately there isn't much being offer aside from the Diamond Select version. For years i've seen the stock images of it and it just looked awful. luckily however i decided i could make it look a little better, so after paying 30 bucks for a brand new figure I went to work.

    Attachment 201748
    Attachment 201749
    Attachment 201750
    Attachment 201751
    Attachment 201752

    What I did:
    Padded the torso
    added sideshow bag
    weather the shirt
    re-molded the terrible plastic hat
    added sideshow belt & holster
    added 1/4 light up torch.

    What i'd like to do
    re-weather shirt, pants, and jacket
    replace jacket with better one. leather?
    shorten body or replace with enterbay body
    buy better pistol - the included one is terrible!
    re shape lasso whip
    re paint idol in metallic paint
    create custom base
    re-paint face and body.

    what do all think? I almost gave up on this fig early this week but I'm quit happy with it now. not perfect but what a difference some little things did to it.

    question
    Where can I get a replacement jacket done for this figure and body?
    Great work! vast improvement

    just a little update, snagged one of the new 1/4th scale bodies to use as a new base for this figure. hopefully it will vastly improve how it looks, will post a pic once it arrived :-)

    Oh BOY! I can't wait to see how this comes out! What a game-changer! I can't believe they even make these! Not like there's a ton of 1/4 heads out there that need bodies. In your case though it's going to rock!

    I'm looking forward to seeing the result. As bmarz stated I just can't believe someone is making these bodies but lucky for you someone is
