Still a pretty neat thing, even if it's just prop replication

Man, I don't want to know about Jones' package.

Do they have top men working on it right now?

It'll blend in, you'll never see or hear about it again.

/It did get lost

museum, huh? didn't know Raiders fans were as gay as the star trek / wars crowd.

What journal is in Raiders of the Lost Ark? At first I thought the article was describing a prop diary from Last Crusade. However it looks like that prop should be addressed as so to be accurate: i.ebayimg.com

Subby: "Bonus: this thing belongs in a museum"

FTFA: "Apparently, it takes him two weeks to make one of these replicas and then he sells them to people all over the world," Brinker said. "He says they usually go for about $200 (but) I believe this one went for $177."

Sorry, Subby, but I'm not interested in your cheap knockoff movie prop museum.

Too bad he lost tenure... Link

I knew right off the bat that's what happened.

Someone bought a replica through the mail, it somehow came out of the packaging and got re-routed due to the address on the replica.

What sucks is that the buyer is now out their $177 because the university kept it and put it on display.

It took a student doing a bit of research on the Internet to discover that Jones was real - on big screen.

It was kind of ruined anyway since the postal service marked on it.

Did I read TFA right? The University knows it was meant for someone else, but they kept it anyway? WTF? Article is hard to understand.

No trolling. It's not a real item, it's not a movie prop, and it's not old. It's a brand new item, made for under a couple of hundred bucks (well, well under a couple of hundred bucks, because it didn't even sell for that *retail*.)

As collectibles go, it's essentially valueless. It certainly doesn't belong in a museum, any more than an Indiana Jones cosplay outfit would.

Well, I take that back. If somebody makes a cosplay "museum" (monumental air quotes), it might belong there.

Well, there was that journal he was writing in when he was in the Well of Souls.

Yeah, I know you weren't trolling, but I needed to use the line somehow. You were just the most convienent

Yeah, that was the Ark of the Covenant journal that Abner Ravenwood kept his research in (much like how Henry Jones Sr. kept his Grail notes in his own). Ravenwood sent the Ark Journal to Indy so he could pick up where Ravenwood's quest got waylaid.

The journal that is the subject of this article is the one from Last Crusade, i.e., Henry's Grail Diary. The mention of Raiders of the Lost Ark is inaccurate.

You don't have to say "air quotes" when you're using actual written quotation marks.

He didn't need it. Him and all his anthropologist buddies got government pensions after '47 as intelligence assets.

What if it's a building which is only dressed up for the fun of it as a cosplay museum?

I thought Calista Flockhart solved his package problem years ago.

I was emphasising the epic scale of the air quotes. ;-)

The prop was made by a former board op Paul T. Wall from the Bill Handel show on KFI 640 AM Los Angeles. He moved back to Guam a few years ago. Sells reproductions on ebay.
