Toy Photography Book on sale!


With the shutdown, comic books aren’t being delivered to stores.  Comic and their distributors are closed. To prevent fan boredom Dynamite comics is running an indiegogo champaign with on hand books. They are discounting graphic novels and comics that they have in stock so won’t be delayed waiting for publication.

One of the books is Ten Seconds Per Frame by Johnny Wu. He has some amazing Toy Photographer. The book is only $6.00. Other books include Red Sonja, The Romita Legacy, Art of Alex Ross, and mystery boxes of comics and graphic novels. They’ve already sold out of the Art of Atari book, I would have bought it if they still had any.

Supplies are limited to what is on hand and the sale ends at the end of April. Shipping is expected to start as soon as indiegogo releases the payment.

Take your action figure to work day 2018


Today is Take Your Action Figure to Work Day. I was working from my home office today.  I took my laptop to the kitchen for better lighting. I took a few pictures of my chosen figures in front of my laptop. I didn’t like the result so took my figures out on errands.  I took some pictures in a parking lot.

Doctor strange yelling at antman for goofing off. ant-man and dr strange action figures are in an office in front of a full size computer. ant-man is in a lounge chair being lazy.

We are Groot!


I won a Groot! Funko ran a twitter giveaway called PSH Happy Hour. They asked for pictures of a GOTG pint size heroes to win a Pint Size Hero Prototype.

I submitted my pic of tiny Groot. I was one of five winners that day. Funko runs PSH Happy Hour contest on twitter. They ask for pics let fans submit for an hour and then give away some cool prizes. I usually see the hashtag on Wednesdays but this one was the opening day of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol2.

I’ve been trying to enter the contest for a while but always missed it. In fact just the week before I had been shooting and was uploading my images when I saw the #PSHHappyHour. I ran outside and took a few pics of Groot in the garden. But by the time I could upload that day’s contest had ended. But my timing just right this time.

And here is Groot and Prototype Groot!

Another Monday Means Another Medusa


Not actually called Medusa, but you know they based this character on the gorgon. This is the She-Demon from the Hercules the Legendary Journeys tv show. Toy Biz made action figures from the Hercules and Xena show during the nineties. She-Demon: Stone Strike Tail is a nice toy, not as detailed as current action figures but it’s a mythological character and those are always cool to collect.

Although her appearance suggests a modern interpretation of Lamia, the She-Demon’s powers and story more closely mirror those of Medusa.

From Wave Two of the ToyBiz HTLJ 5 inch action figure line. The She-Demon as seen in “The Wrong Path.” The She-Demon has a spring-loaded tail. To make her attack, you pull back the tail and then press a button at the bottom to make it spring forward. The She-Demon also comes with a “stone” face mask which will fit over the heads and shoulders of the Hercules and Iolaus figures so you can turn them into stone!

Galaxy’s Most Dangerous Predator


As I near the two-year anniversary of this blog I thought I’d post some of my pre-Yoda Archives work. I’ve mentioned before that this blog was partially a result of a 365 project I did years ago. This is one of the Marco shots I did that year. It’s a vignette I made with Boba Fett and a Predator action figure.

Speaking of predators, Hockey is back.
