Custom Indy Figures – Interrogation Indy and General Ross

Continuing from my previous showcase of KOTCS FBI Agents, guess who were the other persons in that scene…

#79 – Interrogation Indy from “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”

79_interrogation_indyThe day had not been going well for Indiana Jones. Indy was hard at work at an archaeological dig in Mexico when he was paid an unexpected visit by his old wartime buddy George “Mac” McHale. Then they both were kidnapped by persons unknown, later revealed to be Soviet agents, and brought to an old hangar somewhere in the middle of the United States. Indy was coerced into finding a steel box for the Soviets, and when Indy attempted to escape, he was instead betrayed by Mac, who had decided to side with the Soviets. Nevertheless, Indy managed to escape, but not before riding on a rocket sled and taking a harrowing detour through “Doom Town”. And after a particularly embarrassing decon session, the last thing Indy expected was to be given yet another dressing down by the Feds.

Head – Indiana Jones with RPG (KOTCS)
Rest of the body – Mutt Williams with snake (KOTCS)

This is a simple custom, which involved transplanting an Indiana Jones head over to Mutt Williams. The T-shirt was then painted white, while the pants was painted green to match the US Army pants. A small scar was painted onto Indy’s cheek just below the right eye.

#80 – General Robert Ross from “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”

80_robert_rossWhen General Ross learnt that his friend Indiana Jones had escaped from Soviet captors and had been taken into custody at a US base, he immediately traveled to the base and vouched for Indy’s innocence. Apparently General Ross had some intelligence about Soviet activity in the United States, since he was carrying a dossier on Colonel Dr. Irina Spalko, which he showed to Indy without reservation. To Agent Smith’s consternation, General Ross then briefed Indy on classified information about Spalko’s mission, and later Ross fended off Agent Smith’s accusation of Indy having communist sympathies.

Head – General George S. Patton, Jr. of “The Ultimate Soldier XD 1:18″
Rest of the body – Agent K (“Men In Black 3”)
Stars on the shoulder epaulettes – Colonel Dovchenko (KOTCS)

I had acquired a 1:18 General Patton figure some time back as part of my awesome collection. When it came to customizing KOTCS General Ross, I noticed the resemblance between Ross and Patton, and decided that rather than keeping the Patton figure in storage and doing nothing with him, I can put him to good use by doubling him up as a General Ross custom. Epoxy was used to sculpt the buttons, pockets and epaulettes, the suit and pants were painted in buff colour, and the badges and medals were printed out and pasted on. The inner shirt and ties were also painted, which required me to first slit open the suit so that I can do the painting, and then reattach the suit again.

“It’s good to see you too, Bob.”

General Ross defends Indy.

General Ross seems to be on a first-name basis with FBI Agent Paul Smith.
