  1. The new releases of Poison Ivy, Bane, Mr Freeze and Killer Croc from DC Collectibles, based on their appearances in Batman a The Animated Series are starting to hit shelves and are now online For UK buyers they are available across a few UK sites now as well.
  2. Continuing my goal for 2020 to take more shots of the Batman The Animated Series Figures - here’s the fantastic figure of Detective Bullock by DC Collectibles
  3. A massively underrated figure in my opinion. Wolverine was for me, as a 90s child, the first superhero alongside Batman I grew up with so he has always had a special place in my heart. I never imagined I would own such a quality figure of him!
  4. 2019 was a stellar year for action figures with incredible releases from both the premium and regular brands. However, Mezco Toyz produced my top two figures of the year with the PX Sovereign Knight and Commissioner Gordon with BatSignal. Two iconic looking figures featuring classic designs, headsculpts aplenty and a boat load of accessories! What were your top figures? Comment below!
  5. A festive shot as we approach Christmas! Figures used - Medicom Toys Mafex Bruce Wayne - Mattel DC Mulitverse Alfred - NECA Street dio Merry Christmas everyone!
  6. Three ToyNewsi EXCLUSIVE shots Justice League themed shots while the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut movement gains traction Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
  7. Two images showcasing the new Revoltech Jessie - review available on the site as well! First off, the “When she loved me..” expression... and here she is with the rest of her Revoltech gang!
  8. The newly re-released Legacy of Revoltech Jessie figure! Quick thoughts : Beautifully sculpted and painted, this for me is the best of the three Toy Story Revoltech figures Contents : Jessie figure X 3 face sculpts X 9 hand options X 1 Red cowgirl hat X 1 rope X 1 name plate Figure base and stand Articulation : Unsurprisingly, the figure boasts excellent articulation. Head rotation side to side and front to back 360degree Moveable eyes Ponytail rotation at the top of the ponytail and at the bottom 360degree waist rotation 360degree upper leg rotation Knee articulation Ankle articulation and rotation 360degree shoulder rotation Elbow articulation Wrist articulation Sculpt : Excellent character likeness. Well proportioned body shape with excellent details. The outfit is well designed with raised buttons, seams and arm and leg flares. There is a raised drawstring hoop on her back. The hair design is superb, with small details capturing the rope-like style of her hair Paint : Vibrant colours, well applied throughout the figures. No paint issues with my figure at all. Final thoughts : I found the Revoltech Buzz Lightyear somewhat disappointing, his limb proportions were off with some questionable sculpting. Jessie has raised the bar however. With faultless character likeness, excellent articulation and painting. My only issue is a lack of accessories but what she does come with is well executed. I would say she is the best of the three Toy Story Revoltech figures SCORE: 9/10
  9. Recreating a couple of showdowns from the incredible Titan battle sequence from Avengers Infinity War Doesnt it just seem like yesterday when that film was released!?
  10. Getting into the Spooky spirit with this shot of the Disney Store ToyBox Jack Skellington figure! Behind the Scenes
  11. Mezco vs Bandai Cap v Iron Man Tangible shot and VFX Shot Taken on Nikon D3500 Edited in Snapseed with VFX added in LensFX BEHIND THE SCENES INCLUDED
  12. Another explosion effect, done using mostly synthetic cotton and cushion filling, resting on top of a Philips Hue Bloom set to a dark orange colour.
  13. A shot inspired by the now biggest October movie opening ever - Joker. I haven’t actually seen it yet but I’m hearing nothing but insanely positive things! Behind the scene shots included!
  14. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I love blending digital backgrounds behind tangible set ups There’s a few reasons for this; they’re free, they provide freedom of settings and they are extremely versatile! These handful of shots show how something as simple as a red sky background can be used as another planet, a distant future, or a barren desert! Let me know what you think and comment below @thebatcollector
  15. A few snaps of the new and absolutely terrific ; Alfred Pennyworth Mattel are going out on a high. It’s just a real shame they didn’t hit this level sooner.
  16. My new Sovereign Knight arrived yesterday and obviously I wasted no time getting him behind the camera!
  17. 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!
  18. Some more shots of the Legacy of Revoltech Buzz Lightyear and Woddy Please check out my review if you haven’t already.
  19. 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!
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. The new D.C. Multiverse titans by Mattel team up with the D.C. Icons cyborg to take down the Mezco one:12 Deathstroke!
  23. 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
