I was recently sent a box containing the remains of a lot of vintage Kenner Raiders of the Lost Ark figures. I thought it would be fun to take those remains and turn them into something displayable. I take what is left of a Belloq figure and see if it’s possible to make something that can be displayed with the rest of my Indy collection.
