When it was announced in 2019 that Kevin Smith (writer-director of Clerks, Chasing Amy and Dogma) was going to be the executive producer of a new He-Man cartoon on Netflix, I started thinking about picking up a He-Man action figure to capture some photos. I wanted to at least get both He-Man and Skeletor for more photo possibilities, but I have such little space in my Seattle apartment. I searched this site to see what others had photographed and stumbled across A Look at Mega Construx “Castle Grayskull” by James Gibbs. From there, I found the Mega Construx Heroes Battle of Eternia Collection that included He-Man, Skeleton, Beast Man, Faker, and Teela, so I ended up buying the two figures I wanted and a couple of bonus figures for even more photos.
The cool thing about capturing photos of these or LEGO minifigures is that it’s sometimes easier to create scenes with a tablet as a background, a bit of smoke, a few rocks from outside and light from a couple Lume Cubes on my kitchen counter. And that is exactly what I did with the photos below in celebration of Masters of the Universe: Revelation‘s upcoming global premiere on July 23.
