I chose to open Short Round first as I needed a side kick for Indy and he looked pretty darn cool too. I always wished he could have done a quick cameo in Crystal Skull. I also wished there was a Shankara stone in the treasure room at the end of the movie. That would have been spiffy.
Naturally I had to put him on an elephant right away. The other option being a strong bridge, but I really didn't want to build it. There was a better younger elephant at the store, but it was in a pack of other animals and I didn't want to over spend on the prop, but this one's size is close enough.
