Custom Indy Figures – Thuggee Assassin

Hello, I present to you my next Indiana Jones custom figure.

#36: Thuggee Assassin from “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” 

In 1935, following his escape from a blotched artifact exchange in Shanghai, Indiana Jones arrives at an Indian village which had been terrorised by the Thuggee cult from the nearby Pankot Palace. Indy decides to investigate the villagers’ plight, but after he asked several offensive questions about the cult during the palace dinner, the Thuggees decided to silence Indy by sending an assassin into his room during the night.

Head, torso – Mutt Williams with snake (“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”)
Arms, legs, skirt – Thuggee Temple Guard (“Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”)
Turban – Chief Temple Guard (“Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”)

I have acquired a couple of extra Thuggee Temple Guard from CSC, and I realised that it was possible to customise the Thuggee Assassin from the Temple Guard since they wore the same red costume. Only the torso was different, which came from Mutt Williams, painted in a similar red along with the black patterning as seen in the movie. The turban came from the head of the Chief Thuggee Guard, while for the head again I used another Mutt William head. With the painting of face colours and moustache, the original face would not be recognisable.

The Thuggees are experts at strangling their victims.

After a brief struggle, Indy gains the upper hand!
Short Round tosses the whip to Indy, who lashes it around the Thuggee Assassin’s neck.
The whip gets caught in the ceiling fan, which pulls the assassin into the air and hangs him to death.

Thuggees assemble!
