Yes, these are real, out now (2024). Never would have thought there would be Dragon Ball cross promo cereal of any kind on US shelves, let alone DBZ in 2024. But yes, there is, and I bought it. 7 box backs with art, and a family pack size box at Sam’s Club with Shenron. Perfect marketing IMO. Hey, they’re orange, we’re orange, go for it. :) Full deets.
Action figure photography from the Toyark team, one shot at a time!
McFarlane attacked this theme quick and fast, the whole team plus some were knocked out within two years. For this shot I set them all up, then did a single shot per figure with a light directly above them, shots for the floor and fill, and shots with the vapor. Then merged them and blended together. I think I added a bit of extra vapor in post too. It was a big long pain in the ass but I wanted to try that single light method out. Example of that folder with the raw files below.
G.I. Joe Classified Rock N Roll. This line is so damn good, and second half 2023 is an absolute onslaught of releases. I have about 100 figures to dig into, but here’s a shot of Rock N Roll being a boss! Diorama courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store.
Bandai Tamashii Nations Meisho Movie Realization Star Wars The Mandalorian and Grogu, Tamashii Nations Store NYC exclusive Yojinbo edition. Little more rust in the weathering. Soft goods cape. Extra weapons, satchel, etc. The characters are heavily inspired by Lone Wolf and Cub manga, movies, tv shows from Japan, and this version also plays on the Yojimbo movie that Fistful of Dollars ripped off. I played on that movie look with the stark (almost) black and white. Full set here.
