: I'm pretty sure Horizon produced Vinyl 1/6 scale kits of Indy and Henry Jones, Sr. after the release of the Last Crusade. I'm a bit of a collector of this kind of kit, but all of my others (Han Solo, Boba Fett, Ash from Army of Darkness) are a 1/4 scale, so I didn't pick these up, which of course I regret now. But each of the Screamin' kits I have came with a suggestions slip, and I suggested Indiana Jones each time that I've submitted them.

: a quick check shows that Micah has a link to a pic of the Horizon Indy kit from the main page, with the other collector info.

The model was indeed from HORIZON, released a few years ago. The pose is identical to that of Indy as featured on the Richard Amsel poster art for RAIDERS. The figure comes with Indy brandishing either a whip or a sword (you can choose by using either of the pieces).

Only one other model was made -- of Henry Jones, Senior. He holds his suitcase in one arm, and clutches his hat with the other hand.

The models are roughly $50-$65 each. They're made of vinyl/soft plastic and stand about 13" tall or so.

Assembly is surprisingly much more challenging than an amateur modeller would assume. But the Indy figure is quite well done.
