    Default Rene Belloq upgrade - Raiders of the Lost Ark

    And it is time to reveal Raiders custom upgrade figure #5...


    Dr. RENE BELLOQ



    Lots of work on this one and hopefully it shows. Besides the obvious clothing changes, the original Sideshow suit has been fully retailored -- including re-sizing the coat pockets smaller, letting out the pants, narrowing the sleeves, changing the buttons, and I even moved the "back strap" on the back of the jacket to the correct position. I learned a lot on attacking this suit. All the usual fixes too: repainted shoes, real band on hat, new watch, hands, repainted the head and even added a little tussle of hair, etc...

    Fantastic work once again! It's amazing how you've been able to make that original, cheap looking outfit actually look classy and elegant now. I wouldn't have thought that would be possible.

    Looks so much better. I have all of the sideshow figures and the Belloq figure doesn't resemble Paul Freeman at all. Nice job sir.

    That's very kind.

    And in keeping with my other upgrades, here's a couple before-and-afters...

    This first one shows original 2009 Belloq outfit (Cairo bar outfit) versus what I did (Tanis Dig outfit):

    Maybe I'll post those original figures I made after all this is done. They are so horrible it could be fun.

    And no, sadly I never started a Nick Nack because the head sculpt never came to fruition. I still want to tackle a Nick Nack one day though.

    But don't remind me... after all these Raiders upgrades, I feel like I now have to upgrade all those Bond characters I made in 2011-2013...

    Excellent job on Belloq!

    I think that his sculpt was weak to begin with but you've managed to bring out the most of it. Great job on the clothing, as well.
