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

    hi folks.

    after a long delay in getting the figure it finally arrived last month and tonight i started bashing it together.

    getting the head off of the original was a pain but i ended up dremeling out the neck post. Figure looks a lot better in my opinion but I need to figure out how to attach the feet the body as there different posts. I might have to dremel out the top stud and squeeze the posts into the body.

    what do you guys think I should do about the feet? do they even make any 1/4 shoes?

    That looks AWESOME!!! Just dremmel out the boots and sand down the foot pegs if necessary. Next you should repaint the face and hat. Definitely weather the jacket also! Congrats on your one-of-a-kind collectible!

    Great job, agliarept! Now, if you could find the Raiders PF head to put on this body, that would be perfect! Can't wait to see the weathering!

    Ooh loving what you've done to fix this guy! It's always cool when someone grabs a figure and brings it up to it's full potential.

    Interesting to see that someone else has picked up the CooToys 1/4 body what do you think of it so far? (I picked mine up with a mind to having an alternative display option for the 1/4 scale Tony Stark HS but haven't done much with it beyond checking that it turned up in one piece. The joints seem ok so far to me, but feel like they might loosen up over time)

    This may be a bit hit and miss realism-wise but as far as 1/4 scale stuff goes, there is another hobby out there that uses 1/4 scale accessories/clothes... But it's a group that most people on here would automatically scoff at due to the dominant gender of the people involved - the ball jointed doll hobby makes a lot of 1/4 scale stuff & I suspect the slim-mini size range might be a viable search term on places like evilbay. However there are several de facto scales to contend with there, from child-like figures and strangely proportioned Obitsus to things that are far closer to enlarged action figures.
