Hand-Made Mola Ram Action Figure Original Wax Sculpting INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM (1984) LJN (1984) – Due to lackluster sales, Kenner did not renew their license after Raiders of the Lost Ark.

This is the original wax sculpting for Mola Ram, hand-sculpted in an opaque green wax. The individual parts are attached with metal pins typical for an articulated figure. This one-of-a kind, hand-made piece is the basis for every production figure in existence. Includes COA from Collectible Investment Brokerage dated June 20, 2018. Expected: $18,000-20,000
