Very interesting, somewhat dramatic photography.

Although I would have to disagree with Darth Vader and Joker's "anime" status.

Among them, bug men are actually more classic and more of the collector items. I used to collect these things, do models and painting over them. This is a nice series, great control of lighting with clever use of specular highlight.

I expected some very static "product" type shots from the title but as Ftp said, these are dramatic. Very impressive the way you've shown them seemingly in action.

I do like your style on these. This must have been a great exercise in lighting as well.
Really interesting stuff and a wonderful example of why noone should feel silly when others may think you are.

Even though these are figurines ... they kinda of look life-like.
The lighting is excellent ... and you have taken a great series.
Something you don't see/shoot everyday.

Great photos, love the lighting and processing, and the top and bottom black-bar cinema like effect that you used for some of them.
Love em.

From the Japanese "Kamen Rider" series and its many derivatives of live action shows for kids... great stuff!

Not a speck of dust to be seen either; impressive!
