Looks good, what body are you using . I will post pics of mine later today , I used a JX 01 body . I was able to pull out the original neck plug and used one of the rubber sleeves you see on ebay and glued it to the inside of the head so it pretty much fits a standard neck peg that most bodies use.
I didnt know about them - i cut the ball joints off and joined both. Its ok but im fussy and might do it better again in future. Its the World Box body 011. Solid and heavy.

Looks great. Will say i personally like darker pants but looks very nice indeed. Lovely holster/belt. What jacket did you use?
It's the Present Toys jacket. I used leather conditioner and Isopropyl wipes to soften it and then used fine grit sand paper to weather it. I am also considering sending off to get painted.

Looks good. I was never a fan of the jacket but that looks good.

It looks like you are using the Hot Toys shirt and jacket? I have the jacket on my SS TOD Indy, it looks really good on it.
Yes spot on. Love the fit on the jacket. Hard to find one that wasnt starting to peel. Shirt cuffs can be unbuttoned and
rolled up for a jacketless look. Got more parts coming soon that will allow my to finish him off. Been fairly expensive but worth it....

Indiana jones ain't cheap! I got a good DX 5 jacket earlier this year and some boots, The jacket is fine but my boots starts to flake bad. I can still use them since the pants covers it up but decided to switch over to the PT boots since they are basically the same . You may want to put some leather conditioner on the jack so it prevents cracking .

Yes i have done that - jacket was expensive as well. Think the DX05 set was very good apart from sculp and deteriorating pleather parts. Cant believe price on some of the custom parts. The pt head is excellent for a cheap (ish) figure.

The PT and SS TOD Indies both have good head sculpts for mass produced figures , ofcourse with TOD Indy fetching between $450 and $500 on the open market the PT is the way to go for now . Hopefully we'll see some new product next year.

Is it worth getting this PT Indy and the DX05 to mix and match parts? My PT Indy is on the way, and I got a deal on a DX05 for less than $300 and I guess I'm taking it. The satchel and holster pleather are disintegrating though. Plus. I have spare AT011 bodies.

If so, which combination of parts from PT and DX05 should I use? Thanks!

Changing the body is defo the first step - figure looks far better. I used AT011. My opinion would be to use the DX jacket, pants, shirt, boots - basically all the clothes are better. As for the accessories choose whats in good condition and what you like best.

Quick question. Will there be another Indy from Present Toys? Like the Temple of Doom one?
No one knows. Present toys tends to just throw stuff up out of nowhere like any other third party company. For instance, they just randomly dropped Edward Scissorhands yesterday. No one knew or expected that

Here's mine with a mix of Present toy's, Sideshow Raiders and custom leather pieces.
This is a great looking Indy!
Mines on the way from kit and I don’t even know where to start on making it look good.
I’ll definitely look into softening the jacket.
Does anyone know of a good body that I won’t have to modify the neck peg?

Thank you , I need to get some better pics to post . I used the JX01 body , I actually pulled out the neck plug in the head which is a soft plastic with a pair of needle nose plyers and replaced it with on of these so it fits most neck pegs.
