Indiana Jones Premium Format Statue from Sideshow Collectibles

This statue from Sideshow Collectibles will probably be the best Indiana Jones collectible produced. It has already won several industry awards. Indy stands nearly two feet tall from the base and is highly detailed. The likeness to Harrison Ford is outstanding. I have the exclusive version which comes with an alternate hatless head.  The gun belt is real leather and the gun can be removed. The statue is created out of polystone and hand painted. The clothing is fabric and highly detailed.

This photo was taken by me in the morning light. The statue sits on my desk and I like to look at it while I am checking my email. The light really brings it to life. He casts a shadow on the wall that looks like something right out of the original film. I am posting an additional photo from Sideshow of the entire statue and base. 7192_press02-0014

When the first Raiders films were in theaters there were very few toys or collectibles produced. This is why Indiana Jones collectibles are so rare. They made up for this with the release of the new film, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I am hoping that Sideshow will produce another one of Dr. Jones -this time dressed as the professor of archeology, with tweed suit and glasses. The alternate head with hat would be a good choice as the exclusive for this statue. He could be holding the grail diary from the third film.

While there are Indy collectibles available -and at every price point- I bought only one. I think I chose wisely . . .

This Morning

dsc_87641Brooke turned 40 this week and we all made it a big event. She had a massage, dinner at Eddie V’s in Scottsdale -one of the best times we’ve had there- shopping for new clothes, a bottle of expensive wine, roses -and today- breakfast in bed. I tried to keep the kids off her as long as I could. This photo was shot and quickly retouched. It is a common scene on a weekend morning. One of these days I am going to reshoot this and use the studio lights. Abby is holding Brooke’s old make-up bag. Brooke gave her some of the empty -or nearly empty- containers to play with. Abby is our girlie-girl and loves to paint her face. Maddy really is the perfect “big sister” and Katie is simply one of the happiest babies I have ever known. These are the girls, and they are all sweethearts.
