    Default 1/4 Scale - Raiders of the Lost Ark - Indiana Jones statue by Arnie Kim

    Hi all,

    I know that lots have probably seen this statue already but I wanted to share some photos of the amazing attention to detail that Arnie Kim is giving to his 1/4 scale "Tribute" statue of Indiana Jones as he appeared in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    I offered to help Arnie with as much research, photos and measurements of actual accurate Raiders items of clothing and gear as possible and he has taken the research on board with incredible attention to detail. I even sent him fabric swatches of the same color / type of fabric and leather used on the original costume and he has color matched his replica clothing to suit.

    This should really be the most accurate statue of Indy ever made and I am very excited to see his reveal of the final prototype which incorporates all of the changes he made to make the fit, detailing and color of the items as accurate as possible.

    Everyone will have their own opinion about the likeness. For me - I think it looks superb (but perhaps a little older looking than Harrison's appearance in the first movie).

    I really wanted to start this thread to applaud the dedication that this artist has to offering the best replica that he can possibly produce. I have a great deal of respect for the way he didn't let his "ego" stand in the way of help from a fan.

    Absolutely spectacular. I remember seeing Arnieís Raiders 1/4 scale on pictures years ago. Literally nobody has even gotten close. Itís perfect.
    Youíre right, he looks like TOD era Harrison in the face, but the attention to detail all over this is just staggering.

    Awesome work!


    I know it may seem strange, but the below photo looks like a real person - not the head part I know, but with all the shadows, it looks a lot like Raiders, even the sculpt.

    Here's just a quick snippet of some of the jacket details and measurements that I sent to him which he's recreated at 1/4 scale

    Not quite done yet.
    The full reveal of the updated prototype with the super accurate clothing hasn't been shown yet. Almost there though.

    I can't wait for that.

    As a connoisseur of Indiana Jones -- and still having your original 2002 Indy (w- Sovereign Shawn) -- I am always eager to see anything Indy that you have had your fingers on.
