So I'm never very happy with my photos. I recently picked up an older DSLR to hopefully improve them. Results have been mixed (see my previous blog entry on Tork for some middling shots).

My favorite toy photographer, TBDX's Chogoman, has been kind enough to give me a few tips. I've switched from full manual mode to "AV", and just now added a five dollar 4x closeup filter to my kit lens in lieu of an expensive macro lens. This shot is straight from the camera with only Auto Levels applied in Photoshop.

It's progess. Thanks Chogoman!

What tips do you guys have?

Well my feet are still sore from all the walking we did this weekend but it's always an adventure when Josh and I hit NYC. So where's the video? Well I'm done digitizing all out footage and I am working on assembling our footage now. Keep an eye out, as I finish and upload videos I will be updating the existing articles with all sorts of HD goodness.

First batch should be up in just a few hours. ;)

Tork here completes my Power Lords collection, at least as far as the action figures go. Tark was released as part of the second wave of villains. All of the series two figures are rare, but Tork especially.

The middle torso segment is spring-loaded, and spins! He has two creepy faces.

So ugly, so beautiful. The design may not appeal to everyone, but you have to admire the pure originality. For more background on the Power Lords, check out my review of Trigore.

Toy Fair 2010 is coming up and myself (JoshB) and Adam (Atom) will be in NYC attending. Anything special you want to see? Companies you want to check out? So far, we have scheduled appointments with Hasbro, Bandai, Mattel, Toynami, Lego, Mega Brands, Kotobukiya and more. What do YOU want to see at Toy Fair?

ALSO - If anyone in the NYC area wants to get together for dinner / drinks the 13th, 14th or 15th, send us an email!
