HyperReal Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker

duel_03
I spotted Hasbro’s HyperReal Luke Skywalker at GameStop awhile ago. I was intrigued, but the price was a little high. These have actually been around for about 2 years now. I also definitely wanted the Vader, and knew the Luke would just sit for a bit in my basement if I only got the one. Then somehow they ended up at Ollie’s Discount stores for $30. I drove about 30 minutes to get to my closest one and was able to snag both Luke and Vader. I admired them for awhile, but hesitated opening them up. But then between quarantine and the snow, I had a few days to hunker down in my studio and really have some fun with these figures. Click below for more photos and final thoughts.

LEGO Bespin Duel

Join me… and we can build one of the coolest LEGO sets in recent history. I have been searching high and low to get this particular LEGO building kit. Luke’s duel with Darth Vader is not only one of the biggest moments in Empire Strikes Back it’s one of the biggest reveals in cinematic history. This set was very difficult to obtain, but a lot of fun to put together and looks fantastic on display

Sectaurs

sectaurscatalogpage
I recently unearthed my original Skulk Sectaur, and put him on my shelf. But then I came across Pinsor, with Battle Beetle, at a vintage toy store (Eternia Dreams) and snatched him in my grubby claws. Now that I had a good guy Sectaur, I could set up a proper photoshoot. Actually this photo was specifically designed to look like a scan from an old Sears Wishbook catalog page. This is the time of year that I used to pour through those pages, dreaming up my wish list and what I hoped to find under the tree Christmas morning. Click below for additional photos. …continue reading Sectaurs

Back to the Future! with Playmobil

I absolutely love the playmobil treatment that the Back to the Future franchise recently received. I’ve been a big fan of playmobil and Back to the Future almost the exact same time of my life. In fact today is Back to the Future day and playmobil has their BTTF sets for 25% off! The fact that they’re some of my favorite things, after all this time, is quite a testament to the staying power that comes with good quality, and heart.
