Disguised as local diggers, Indy and his loyal friend, Sallah, gain access to the excavation site of Belloq and the Germans. With Sallah´s help, Indy lowers himself by rope into the restricted map room. Inside, he uses the Staff of Ra to discover the true location of the Well of Souls, a buried chamber that hides the Ark of the Covenant.
MOC, 2008 Hasbro.
Included accessories: Pouch, whip and revolver. The mandatory set.
Figure: Indiana Jones, Raiders of the Lost Ark as dig worker. Neat combination, since whenever cloth is used for 4" figures, usually looks awful. In this case, shinny.
Features a hook-and-loop fastener making it very easy to remove and put back again. Brilliant.
Once out of the disguise, the only thing left to remove are the rags. However, since they´re sculpted, no luck there.
However great the cloth piece may be, this set´s star is without a shadow of a doubt, the Ark of the Covenant.
Perfectly crafted, brilliantly sculpted, with tiny and accurate details on it. One of the best pieces I´ve ever seen.
Opens (no sand there), has all the movie-like details and really looks golden. A true master and display piece.
