I was at the Indianapolis Children's Museum last week and took these pictures. It sure looks like the hero idol, but I thought I'd let the more trained eyes say yay or nay.

Thoughts?

Woot!! I thought so too. I couldn't tell you how excited I was to be just inches away from it. Now to figure out how to get it out of the glass to take some really good pictures of it.

Yep, that's it alright!! The only thing not showing up on your photos is the silver in the mouth and around the baby. Could you see much silver in these areas in person?

Thanks for the photos by the way!!!!!! :thumbsup

I was at The Children's Museum yesterday. I dismissed it as a fake until I saw the eyes and the seam on its head. Here's a few of the pics I took that day. Not sure if they add anything, but I hope they do.

I remember seeing in the bonus disc on the Raiders series dvd set that the back of the head popped off to reveal some sorta motor or something for the eyes. Has it ever been figured out what it did? Did it move the eyes or did it make it light up? What was it for?

How can that be the hero idol?
I thought they were made out of fiberglass.
Unless the one pictured here actually is....

You can gold plate fiberglass. This one was renovated a few year back but it was badly made.

This is the real HERO idol and it IS fiberglass.

The bad re-worked gold plating means that this HERO idol was "restored" a while back while it was in the archives. It was taken to a plating company that did the C3PO for the prequals and has done a poor job replating it. The original plating was a bad plating job as well anyway.
