    Default Re: Rene Belloq 12" figure

    It really blows my mind how you manage to make something too small for these already scrawny figures......? I'll take slightly baggy over too small any day!

    Looks much better futzed with. Eventually I'll go back and get this figure.

    It does. And I'm sure I can put together a great Belloq out of this... just a little frustrating that he's so un-ready out of the box, that it will require new parts and the casting aside of inferior ones (tie) and -- most aggravating --that the suit doesn't fit in the way it is supposed to (to make that bloody tie work).





    I figure I'll give the SS Belloq my custom's blue shirt, scarf, watch and map.

    I think my custom Belloq might work with the SS tie, as the jacket has working buttons, so at least I can get it to close and cover the short, fat tie.

    So basically, I'm flipping the intended figures: SS Cairo Bar Belloq becomes Dig Site Belloq, and my custom Dig Site Belloq will become the Cairo Bar Belloq.

    That custom looks pretty sweet. The way you have him all futzed there in that pic he does look really nice.

    Yeah, between the two, you are Golden Wor-Gar. Still like to see hair/eyebrow repaint, should look better.

    Guess this means no Belloq Variants.

    I kinda get the feeling that Sideshow knew the Chamber was selling this figure and didn't take the effor the make sure the production figure's suit was great. Which is a real shame. I wonder how many years the regular Belloq will be given away as Spooktacular prizes now?

    That is very apparent. Lots fell through the holes here.

    Another reason I'd say the Indy line is at its end, or one figure away.

    I really wish I got this for free. Then I'd feel I got a fair deal.

    Looks like my Belloq finally shipped! 11 pounds! Holy crap!

    It really is a shame you can't button the jacket. What's worse, leaving it open looks terrible as well, since the snap(doesn't EVERYONE have giant snaps on their suit jackets??) has to show. Also, now the buttons look like they are on the wrong side, since when closed, it gives the illusion the jacket is buttoned up.
    The Tie?? That's just wrong.

    I don't know about that, but the good news for those of us who got the Ex version of this is that Belloq comes in his own, regular edition box and was packed in with the separate Idol base box in one surprisingly huge shipping box. So eBaying this away will be easy. So will parting out the base if anybody wants to make a buck on evilBay.



    Here is my collection for those of you who didn't see my thread on onesixth which I saw somebody linked to this thread. It includes all three Gentle Giant Comic Con Crates, the Hasbro Ark, Medicom Urn of Nurhachi and Sankara Stone, and Palisades Adventure Kermit for kicks. I won't be displaying the Belloq, but will surely used the melting head Toht.









    I had a question. I haven't actually opened my Bellog yet because I don't really care, but I've seen people comment about a metal Idol. Does he come with a metal Idol?

    Right now I'm using the metal Gentle Giant one because the plastic SS one was kinda rounded on the bottom and didn't sit flat.
