Amazing action figure art

Amazing action figure art When I first saw the photos of this stuff, I thought they were taken from life. I've never been into war-toys based on humans, but this is really really breathtaking...

That is so good...just as pictures and such they're impressive, but the 'narrative overloading' of classic war toys makes it brilliant.

Nifty. The backgrounds and props are quite well done as well.

Hey! I met this guy a couple times. Friend of a friend. His stuff is even more impressive in person. Standing 5 feet away, you think it's a photograph, then when you get close, it has a really painterly feel. Glad to see everybody is into it.

Using Freecache might have been a good idea.
