I guess when the popular kids want to do it, it's alright.
    If Trevor himself had a problem with his PF sculpt being shrunk to 1/6, i'm sure he would have let people on this board know

Though there are things about the HT's sculpt I didn't like it's just as good as the SS sculpts. Several custom sculpts have come as close as TG. I think that fan love for certain sculptor's work causes them to turn a blind eye to the realities of what looks good and what doesn't. I'll be the first to admit that there are some sculptors work that I like better than others. In the end the best sculpt of a character is what I'm looking for, regardless of who sculpted it.
    I don't think Trevor is the only sculptor who can capture HF, he's just the one who I feel has been most successful. And you're right, other sculptors have come close, but that's the key word; close. I'll admit, I am a huge Trevor Grove fan, but that's only because every sculpt he bothers to create, ends up being widely accepted as the definitive version of that character. I am always looking for the best sculpt, same as you, I just happen to think the honors consistently go to Trevor.

    And to say that the HT sculpt is as good as any one of Trevor's sideshow sculpts, whether it be the 1/6, Raiders 1/4 or ToD 1/4 is just...sorry, all bias aside, I can't take that seriously.

    It seems you've spent so much time debating on this thread that you missed William Shatner's Toupee explaining what has taken the time. Indy is not the only head he has sent to be printed. There have been defects in some of the prints and he's hanging fire till everything is sorted. Indy wasn't actually one of the defective ones, but, I can understand his caution.

    Better everything comes back hunky dory and we all get the best heads. Nothing to panic about!
    CHEERS!

    Trev's sculpts are the best. They are a bit oversized for HT style bodies and the Raiders 1/6 one was made of some nuclear shiny plastic unfortunately.

    I am also using Trevor's sculpt for my Indy. Here is a quick shot, I was in the right place at the right time.

    I'm really late to the party, but here is a custom Indy I've been working on on and off for the last year. It's not finished, but is very close. I am getting an mfisher whip and still need to attach the head (it's attached by tape at the moment)



    Jacket weather detail:


    Recipe:
    Head: Paul Carson
    Headpaint: smallstudios
    neck removal and chest paint: SilentSurfer
    Jacket, shirt, gloves, belt: Hot Toys
    Pants, bag, whip: Sideshow
    Shoes: not sure
    Belt with gun holster: mfisher
    Jacket and gloves weathering: me

    I also added some quarters and dimes in the lining of the jacket to give it some weight and fall better.

    Wants: MP-10 Takara Optimus Prime
