Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Bricks

September 3rd, 2008

I spent much of Labor Day laboring on one of my birthday presents: an Indiana Jones-themed Lego set (#7263, “Temple Escape”) reproducing the Chachapoyan Temple from the opening scenes of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Here’s a detailed look!

Guarding the temple’s mouth, Belloq chuckles evilly. Because he’s French, and that’s what they do. A former victim is impaled on the wall. Pay no attention to that boulder over the doorway. Bonus spikes swing out of the wall when a peg is removed.
Indy swings across a pit of bottomless shag carpeting. The traitorous Satipo treads lightly across the stones of the dart room. (The set only comes with four spears, but I added enough to plug all of the available holes. “Hmm…I can’t see what could possibly go wrong if I pick up that idol.”
The idol chamber collapses when the peg is removed! “Aagh! I wish this was Tom Selleck instead of me!” “You throw me the idol, I throw you the whip!”
Raising this lever dislodges the rolling boulder… …while dropping the sliding door. “Adios, Satipo!”
“Oh, that’s just my pet snake, Reggie!”
