Lucasfilm Custom Of The Week: Figma 6" Indiana Jones Repaint By Hemblecreations

Bespin refugee - April 27, 2014
This week's JediInsider Custom, by hemblecreations, is based on a character from the other Lucasfilm franchise, Indiana Jones, and features a repaint of the Figma 6" Indiana Jones Figure; Here is how hemblecreations describes the making of it:

Hi All,

When I heard that Figma were doing a 6" Indiana Jones figure I was stoked so I picked up two of them but after receiving the figures I was a little dissapointed in the paint apps and some of the gear. So with not being happy with the before mentioned items I decided to repaint and twik some of the gear.


1: Indiana Jones - The figure itself is just a straight repaint using Vallejo, Games Workshop and pastel to paint and weather the figure. I removed the strap and bag and replaced the plastic strap with a strip of leather cut to size. I then attached two small o-rings made from thin wire to the leather strap and then attached some material to the o-rings and attached that to the bag, I then cut the buckle from the plastic strap and attached that to the leather strap.

The whip holder that is on the figure is just a molded piece of plastic which has a slot cut into it so that a whip can be attached to it. I decided to remove this molded whip holder and replace it with a thin piece of leather cut to size. I then used two very small magnets and attached one to the leather and the other I drilled a hole and inserted the other magnet in to hole and superglued it into place.

The whips that come with the figure have no details so I cut the handles off and drilled into the end of the handles and inserted strips of pleather and then added model ship bout rope to the end of the pleather.

2: Base- The base was made from a left over piece of high density foam, I cut the foam to make the step and then used a sharp pencil to inscribe the stone. I then pressed a piece of sandstone into the foam to simulate a stone look, I then used a mix of dirt and mulch to build up the ground work and then used fish tank plants and army builder shrubs to make the folage.
