    I dont ubderstand why this piece hasnt gotten a high review from many collectors. I have to say the face is great n just like harrison ford. Is there I m missing here guys? Seems like this char isnt popular or maybe the sculpt isnt good ebough????

    It's a great piece and vastly under-rated in my opinion. Though it's true to say it had the misfortune to be solicited around the same time as the SS PF which was an attractive, cheaper alternative.

    I love this statue especially clothes, pose, base, accesories...
    The head isnt bad
    Must see in person
    All CM are work of art
    You will see your superman to have an opinion :top:

    Definitely a piece that has to be seen in person to be appreciated. Hands down the best Indy on the market.

    I will have to agree , this does have to be seen in person , it's weird because at first and still sometimes I don't see ford , but then when I see clips of ford when he was younger , I definitely see him in the sculpt . I feel mine is too pale still and hair is too blond . But is a very cool piece

    This is a great piece indeed I just think it kinda got lost in all of cms phenomenal pieces. The likeness is very good. I think the eyes take away from it IMO. It's amazing what eyes can do. But like some of you just said the tailoring and costume is amazing. I was just admiring this piece the other day too. The pose is good bit not great to me.

    I would prefer standing , and holding the whip by his side , I know ss has this pose , but I. 1/3 scale it would be very super cool imo

    I agree with Enzo
    Indy's eyes is the worst thing on this statue, it looks fake...

    thank u guys..i have seen picts that are really good but also seen ones with really horrid facial expression on this piece. i dont see constant reviews on this piece yet...and that makes me wonder whether this piece really worth the shot or not. i just need to see it in real person before passing my judgement.
    hoewever i feel that most of us here are real fans of Cm pieces and hence we r a little biased about it. i do personally think need outsiders opinion on the head sculpt then i ll believe more..
    well so far i havent been able to see a video so clear showing his face and all..i m hoping oneday either of you guys here who has indy can post a high def video on utube for review and comparison.
    thank you again in advance guys..

    I have to say that to me , Indy was cm that I was not too excited about getting due to the same reason, the face did not really look that great to me , it was the eyes on this one that somehow did not work for me compared to the eyes of other cms , but I have to tell you doc , that not only do people have to see the cms in person to really appreciate them , but the Indy one is the only cm I think that must be seen in person, it really is very cool. As I said at first I didn't see ford in the sculpt but he is defiantly there , especially the younger look

    Its very well done
    I wonder how he manage to get a scale rubban?
    But i prefer indy without his hat
    Adjust his hair a bit and hes much better looking
    Prefer admire the work on his hair than a hat...

    Disagree Zhong Indy MUST have a hat.

    Agree with you Otto, but my goodness the Indy CM had one bad hat Harry. The sculpted nature of it just felt like too much of a shortcut and given they had access to the original costume they really should have made the effort with a proper scaled fabric fedora.

    This actually looks pretty cool . The brim may be too thin which makes it looked warped on the first pic but may be fixable . I think I will get this and try it out
