    I have recently come into the abilitiy to buy a few props I've always wanted, and have some questions.

    There are many people who do Indiana Jones props, but should I wait for MR to unveil their line? Are they better or worse than stuff we can get/make in our community? Is it better to have the "official" one even if an individual can do it better? Is price a good factor? Any other things to consider?

    I mean, I have been looking at Magnoli's Grail Diary for a while now, but if there's gonna be an offical one, what should I do?

    Thanks for your help,

    I was told by MR at C3 that they were doing the Idol, Grail Diary and the Headpiece to the Staff of Ra (which a prototype has been seen).
    Only a small handful of the Idols produced thusfar have ben accurate and are one off's. I've only been satisfied by one Headpiece by Acmemagico but he's not making them any longer. I know the replica props and Magnoli ones have been popular. His Diary is tops too but is quite a bit of money. Not sure if MR's will be as nice or cheaper.
    I'd say have patience and just save your money till we see what MR has in store for us. That is of course, more than a year away though.

    I'll keep my idol, not really interested in a diary, but would like to see that headpiece prototype photo. Anyone have it?

    The image looks terrible, you can't see the head piece well enough to make a call. Crystal may be too dark though.

    I thought those photos (Ra Headpiece, MF, YWing, Fett Blaster) were of the actual props, not the MR protos? Just an example of what they have in the pipeline. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I thought the same. Well, but MR was forced/told to push back the Indy Line until the release of Indy IV and I really do not have a clue when this will happen (or at least I doubt it´ll appear the next years.)
