    Default Re: Rene Belloq 12" figure

    I finally had a chance to open mine today, and I am just not sold on the figure. I am going to part mine out. If anyone needs extra parts, let me know.

    The idol pedestal is a thing of beauty. The metal idol is a heavy little sucker. I guess I never paid any attention, but does anyone know exactly what the idol is doing with it's hands. Take a look, you will see what I mean.

    It's a Fertility Idol. She's giving birth. There are actually many such statues and idols throughout Central and South America.

    Yeah, my brother is an art teacher and he did a course on fertility idols. Of course, he used the the Indy one as an example because he's a die hard Indy/Star Wars fan.
    Your stink brings tears to my eyes!

    I'm really liking this figure the more I have him. Yeah the sculpt is off, but I can see a lot of custom potential.

    I am aware of the concept of a fertility idol. I am pretty sure I have seen at least a couple in my art school history courses.

    However, I have never seen one that is reaching around and spreading it's butt cheeks. I can never watch this scene the same way again.

    this sculpt looks so caricaturish(is this even a word?) I hate how the pro looks on this figure.


    They want me to come out of the dark…but I won’t
    I won’t.
    I’ll stay here.
    Where it’s safe.
    Safe from them…

    Dude, I hate to be the one to have to explain this, but if that is a birthing fertility idol, that ain't her butt cheeks she's spreading...
