To start, please excuse the terrible photography. I haven't mastered wihte-on-white yet. I'd rather deal with a bath-towel background than washed-out photos.  ;)

Ha! I am working on that same scene for my LEGO Indy Temple of Doom movie!!! The dragon head is a masterpiece!!! But with the Willie figure, I suggest Mary Jane's body from SpiderMan, dark red pants, fleshie arms, Marion Ravenwood's head, and Juno Eclipse's hair. Funny, in the Lego Indy video game, Willie has Marion's head, and Marion has some other head. I am trying to make all of my minifigures as close to the figs in the video game as possible.


P.S: I saw Speed racer. :sick:

Umm, if I were to do this, I'd base it more on the game itself. I'd say any red dress would do, but Trixie's outfit would more suit the dancers with her. Take a look at the screenshots; you can see them. It looks pretty durned close to it.

But still, it looks great! And I'd suggest getting any yellow hair if you can, preferably a yellow ponytail, and Marion's head, as well as a red dress and red legs. :sweet:

I think if LEGO made a Temple of Doom set, this would clearly be the first one they chose. :tongue:

Excellent and clever as always, buddy! :sweet: :thumbup:

Brilliant use of those Rebel helmets as dragon eyeballs. I have those same pieces used in a WIP that is going to take me a while to finish. I hope I get it completed before someone else comes up with the same technique :cry_sad:

VERY nice work, Sir N. It might be a stupid question cause I never took notice if your minifigs were, but is this one customized? Never seen any parts like these. And if it is, how did you do it, and first of all (cheers so far): did you ever thought about selling them?  :classic:

I'm afraid it isn't customized. Well, it's a purist custom, if ya follow me. :wink:

The torso and legs are Trixie's from the new Speed Racer theme, and the head and hair are Juno Eclipse's from the Rogue Shadow. :wink:  The hands were custom inserted.

I am purist and was wondering..  :classic: (noticed Juno but didn't know the rest) I was searching on BL for these but they are so new that no one had them I guess. And I really didn't like the speedracer at all  :thumbdown:  so I didn't take notice of the minifigs.. sorry! and thanks trooper!

Really great creation, I particularly enjoy the all-white dragon head. (Though I believe the moving cloth was in its nose, not in tis eyes  :tongue: )

I would like to suggest however the use of this http://peeron.com/inv/parts/973px154 torso?
Seems a bit more chinese doesn't it?
But, your MOC is just fine as it is.  :thumbup:

The moral of Indy is... "Don't get in a swordfight with a Russian chick while hightailing it through the South African jungle while your mom is driving the truck because she will look away from the nonexistent road to criticize your footwork and accidentally cause some oddly bulbous jungle flora to whack you repeatedly right in the junk."

Ditto. And to make matters worse, her attack in Lego Indy the Video Game is screaming.
