Hard to imagine, but this photo represents the first proper portrait I’ve taken of the vintage R2-D2 and C-3PO action figures together. With chrome paint these two can be particularly hard to light. Worth the effort though as the results are spectacular when the stars finally do align.
Attention sports fans! If you want to dig deeper into the story of ‘Star Wars Action Figures Doing What They Do Best’, an interview has been published at the excellent Galactic Awesome blog. That blog has a terrific companion as well.
Dude, I linked over to your site from jimsmash. These rock. They take me back to the old days when Star Wars rocked and I photographed my own action figures!
I can’t believe you’ve never shot these two blokes together! Well, it was worth the wait. Brilliant stuff.
I had that EV 9D9 figure. I pulled out the Darth Vader carry case one day and his arm had fallen off. I was very upset. (laughs)
