  1. A few shots showing a very simple HOW-TO for creating an explosion effect. I have used the cotton from inside and old cushion, positioned at the back of the shot out of focus with a bright orange light (from a Philips Hue Bloom) and an iPad light on the opposite side. With Batman in the foreground with the focus on him on aperture 5.6, ISO 100 it helps create the illusion of an explosion in the background. let me know what you think!
  2. Some more shots of the Legacy of Revoltech Buzz Lightyear and Woddy Please check out my review if you haven’t already.
  3. A shot of the new Legacy of Revoltech Buzz Lightyear. I have included a few ‘behind the scenes’ shots of explain the laser effect. In short, I used atmosphere aerosol spray to capture the laser from a laser measuring device. More shots to come this week and please check out my review as well!
  4. A look at the newly released, Legacy of Revoltech Buzz Lightyear. Check out the Toy Photography section for some more advanced shots. Initial thoughts - He’’s a good figure but just isn’t quite the same quality as others in Revoltech’s Disney line. I’ll get into that in more detail below. ARTICULATION - As you would expect from a Revoltech Figure. Highly articulate, shoulder joints, elbow joints, wrist rotation and wrist joints, finger and thumb joints, hip joints, upper thigh rotation, knee joints, ankle joints, waist joint, neck rotation and neck joint, canopy opens and closes also. He also features movable eyes. PAINT APPLICATION - I mention this specifically due to a couple QC issues with mine where the paint had either been slightly misapplied or slightly chipped particularly on the green chest panel. However, the colours are vibrant and true to the original design. They capture the light beautifully as well. ACCESSORIES - These are good but again compared to others in the line there are not as many as you would expect. There are two head sculpts as you will see. A smiling Buzz and a more intense smirk. Both feature the trademark eye movement but due to a design flaw wherein the inner part of the head sculpt is too narrow, meaning the eye joint cannot fit inside the head if moved too far in one direction! However you can still definitely change the direction of sight which adds great variation particularly for photography and is a reason I really enjoy these figures. The little details really bring them to life. There are attachable wings which are well detailed and a small closed wing panel to replace them when not in use. There are also three green army men, a Buzz Lightyear name plate and a clear plastic display stand. A removal arm is also included as a feature to replicate the classic scene from Toy Story but the way it is executed just looks like a joint you could remove anyway... OVERALL - He is a good figure, not great. And I think compared to the high quality Revoltech have produced with Woody, Judy Hopps and Winnie the Pooh, I just expected a bit more. He is not a terrible expensive figure though and the articulation and details do allow for terrific variety of posing and photography and all in all, he is a fine addition to the Revoltech Disney line. Just sadly not quite up there with the best. FINAL SCORE - 6/10
  5. A couple of shots of the titular characters from the classic, peerless and outstanding Batman The Animated Series which marked its 27th anniversary this week.
  6. The new D.C. Multiverse titans by Mattel team up with the D.C. Icons cyborg to take down the Mezco one:12 Deathstroke!
  7. A truly superb figure by Mezco toyz. The BatSignal alone makes this worthwhile. There’s a few variations of shots here to showcase both the figure and the BatSignal accessory
  8. Some shots of the truly sublime Ninja Batman build a figure by Mattel's DC Multiverse line. I cannot recommend this wave enough!
  9. Some more shots of the beautiful Starfire figure from Mattel, part of the DC Multiverse line Ninja Batman Wave.
  10. Some shots of the DC Multiverse John Stewart by Mattel as part of the DC multiverse line.
  11. The Ninja Batman BAF wave by Mattel is part of their DC Multiverse Lane. It features the following figures in approx 6.5" scale ; Starfire Beast Boy Black Lightning (CW) Nightwing Green Lantern (John Stewart) The Flash (Wally West) Each figure comes with a segment of the Ninja Batman based on the hit animated movie by DC. STARFIRE A beautifully sculpted figure particularly with her hair, she is the standout in the wave for me. Vibrant colours blend with great details. ARTICULATION: She has single jointed elbows with elbow rotation, chest rotation, double jointed knees, thigh pivots, hip articulations, front to back ankle articulation, the head has rotation side to side and front to back and is not impacted by the hair sculpt in any way. ACCESSORIES: Starfire comes with the cape and head sculpt for Ninja Batman along with two cosmic power effects which sit comfortably over her hands. NIGHTWING Another well sculpted and painted figure. The head and hair particularly is done to a high standard with lovely shades of blue added to the hair. The body paint blends a matte black with a glossy blue and there is good articulation throughout. ARTICULATION : Nightwing features shoulder articulation and rotation, upper arm rotation, single jointed elbows, wrist joints, chest articulation, hip swivel, hip joints, upper thigh rotation, double jointed knees, ankle joints and head rotation. ACCESSORIES: Nightwing comes with two batons, two extra hands plus the right leg for the Ninja Batman. BEAST BOY Adding another member to the Teen Titans Roster, Beast boy yet again boasts vibrant, well applied paint jobs with a superb sculpt. His head features wild green hair AND sideburns, with his forearms and shins feature additional green fur! His default expression is a cheeky smirk and brilliantly captures the character. The green skin is married up again a red and white outfit which has a clear separation from skin to clothing with a smart upturned collar. ARTICULATION : Head rotation and pivots, shoulder joints plus rotation, upper arm rotation, single jointed elbows, wrist joints, articulation, hip swivel, hip joints, upper thigh pivots, double jointed knees, ankle joints. ACCESSORIES : Beast Boy comes with two extra hands, sword and sheath for Nijna Batman plus his left arm with additional hand. BLACK LIGHTNING Based on the CW Television series, the Black Lightning figure does a sound job of capturing Jefferson Pierce. The sculpt in particular has a lot of nice little details worked into the character's suit. Rather than simply painting many of the details, they are individually sculpted into the body which gives far greater depth and aesthetic quality. The paint job however is also done to high standard working in subtle shades of blue and black to create an appealing finish. ARTICULATION : Head rotation and pivots, shoulder joints plus rotation, upper arm rotation, single jointed elbows, wrist joints, articulation, hip swivel, hip joints, upper thigh pivots, double jointed knees, ankle joints ACCESSORIES : Two extra hands with lightning effects, two more standard extra hands, Ninja Batman's left leg. THE FLASH (WALLY WEST) Long time DC collectors will know how few good Wally West figures are out there so this is one I was particularly excited for. The figure does not disappoint. A confident expression captures Wally's bold character with the bright orange hair bringing him to light, sculpted neatly over his head mask. The paint job is well applied with two different shades of red blending throughout the suit, mixed with silver lightning effects. ARTICULATION : Head rotation and pivots, shoulder joints plus rotation, upper arm rotation, single jointed elbows, wrist joints, articulation, hip swivel, hip joints, upper thigh pivots, double jointed knees, ankle joints ACCESSORIES : Two extra hands with silver lightning bolt effects which wrap around the forearms, Nijna Batman's right arm with extra hand GREEN LANTERN (JOHN STEWART) Utilising the same body as the Wally West figure previously mentioned, John has a stern facial expression which does a good job and conveying this well disciplined ex marine. Showcasing the more classic buzzcut hair-do. The paint job blends a solid black which a much-needed glossy green to really capture that all important colour and help it stand out. A solid if not slightly unspectacular figure.. ARTICULATION : SAME BODY AS WALLY WEST - Head rotation and pivots, shoulder joints plus rotation, upper arm rotation, single jointed elbows, wrist joints, articulation, hip swivel, hip joints, upper thigh pivots, double jointed knees, ankle joints ACCESSORIES One extra left hand, one right hand with ring finger glowing effect, Ninja Batman torso and upper legs. NINJA BATMAN I have saved the best until last here. For a build a figure this guy is a beast. Tremendous little details, superb paint job, excellent sculpt, great articulation and smart accessory. The body of the figure is the stand out here with a BEAUTIFULLY sculpted armour with stunning gold paint mixed with a subtle grey/blue. The individual gold rivets on the armour is a fantastic touch and you will find raised golden armour effects all along the figure, as opposed to just being painted on. the warrior skirt particularly stands out with the fantastic golden effects highly noticeable. The cape is brilliantly sculpted particularly along the bottom with unique flares adding a real sense of drama to the figure ARTICULATION : Head rotation and pivots, shoulder joints plus rotation, upper arm rotation, single jointed elbows, wrist joints, articulation, hip joints, upper thigh pivots, double jointed knees, ankle joints. ACCESSORIES : Two extra hands, sword and sheath
  12. Some snaps of the new Logan figure by Mezco Toyz Always had a soft spot for Wolverine and this is a great figure for any fan of Logan. THREE Headsculpts make for great variety and his casual look works so well and makes him and excellent utility figure
  13. The newly released Clown Prince of Crime edition Joker by Mezco toyz. A beautiful figure, the overall design is great. The colours are vibrant and the clothed goods are a real high quality. Plenty accessories and one extra head sculpt. If it came with maybe two head sculpts it might just make the that Deluxe Joker less sought after. Overall, it’s one of Mezco’s best and I love the originality in the design.
  14. *Minor minor minor Far From Home spoiler* A recreation of that phenomenal sequence in Spider-Man Far From Home, featuring the Mezco Spider-Man.
  15. A set of shots of the new Bandai SHFiguarts Iron Man Mk50 Nano Weapons Set. A beautiful Figure with an immense amount of accessories providing incredible variation of posing and displaying
