Marvel Legends Ant-Man Review

Before Ant-Man entered the MCU, I really had no idea who he was. The first Ant-Man movie was awesome, but Ant-Man and The Wasp somehow managed to be even better. Now he’s in my top three…wait…Thor, Spidey, Iron Man…uh…Cap…well, my top five anyway. Today we’re going to be taking a …

Toy Photography Blues

The year is off to an inauspicious start. Between the wet weather, a new dog (total distraction on four legs!) and an upgrade to my camera equipment I’m singing the toy photography blues. You’re probably thinking: “What! That makes no sense! New equipment, like new toys, should inspire a burst …

Review: Overwatch LEGO

Okay. Full disclosure. I love Overwatch. I play this game near daily so there is no way in SR hell this review isn’t going to be bias af but I will try lol. When Shelly told me it was possible I could write about these sets, most fortunately for her, …

2018 blog report

Whilst 2019 is officially here, I’m still looking back at 2018. Here at Toy Photographers we love to do some analysis on our photos, so as part of that this year, I thought I would take a look back at the blog as a whole for 2018. The following is …

Five Words to Define a Year

I’ve written about Five Words to Define a Year in the past. In those posts I’ve been thinking more about my own personal journey than our larger, collective journey here on the blog. But all these end of year reflections we’ve been doing on the blog got me thinking: What …

Put Your Self Into Your Art

Self portraiture is an art form where a photographer puts themselves into a scene.  This isn’t a duck-lipped bathroom mirror Instagram selfie, but true and proper art.  The kind of art that hangs in an art gallery, except the photographer uses themselves as a model. Self portraiture is the type …

The TP Awards

What a year this has been! But before I say goodbye to 2018, I want to take the time to acknowledge a few of my favorite blog posts from this year. Let me grab a fresh role of toilet paper (TP) and I will get started awarding the first annual …

Countdown to Christmas 2018

I honestly can’t believe it’s already almost a week into December. This year has absolutely flown by for me. This time last year I was buried in a full house clean out as we tackled carpet moths. It’s felt a little non-stop since then! It’s not been the best year, …

Review: Figma Link DX

I think I’m on a bit of a fantasy kick lately. The Mythic Legions figures didn’t quite satiate my fantasy craving. They’re awesome figures, but they’re also fairly large and heavy. I want a figure that is easy to grab and carry along, or easy to pop in a container and …

Building A Hulk

I’ve been on a big Incredible Hulk kick lately, which surprises me as I normally am not that much of a fan of the Hulkster.  However he seems to be tickling my muse, so I am running with it.  I recently watched Thor Ragnarok with my son, and I was …
