Neca 22" Alien review and collection update

Well guys...good and bad news. I got quite a good deal on the 22" Alien figure by Neca - read lots of good aspects in terms of movie accuracy and the sculpt. So I thought why not give it a shot. But see for yourself how this odyssey turned out for me:

So the whole joint / ankle quality problem was quite a let down, especially regarding the superb sculpt and size of the figure. Non the less a must have!

Hot Toys Classics - Terminator 2 T-800

My first Hot Toys figure and still an awesome piece of 1/6 art. The Terminator 2 T-800. I was checking out Terminator 2 on Blu-ray out a that time and stumbled upon some Hot Toys prototype pictures on google image search - it was unbelievable. And it shortly after got soaked into collecting Hot Toys.

Still to this day this is the best 1/6 scale incarnation of the Terminator 2 Arnie. Discussions arised in the past weeks because of Enterbays 1/4 T2 scale figure - but if you ask me the Hot Toys one still is a very good match.

Macro videography Part 2

Here's another example of super macro videography of some older Palisades collectibles (Alien an Predator lines). So please enjoy!

Macro lens testing on movie collectibles

Hi guy, I hope you had a good start in 2012 and wish you all the best right away. Not so much going on at the moment. Lots of delays on collectibles!

Today the Hot Toys Mark I 2.0 was in depth announced - coming a long very nicely. Just wanted to share something new - I bough a universal macro lens of Raynox (DCR-250) for my Panasonic HDC-SD90. Decided to do some test shoots - maybe I will use this way of filming a bit more in the future.

It's unbelievable what you get out of the detail with this macro lens. The camera was standing about 4 inches away from the collectibles, then you turn on the telemacro zoom and enjoy the world of macro photography!
