Yup. Dalianjj was able to help.
This is a great shot. Do you mind me asking the set up? Is it off camera flash and a fast shutter speed to under expose the background? And is it black perspex / acrylic for the surface, that shows up the reflection?
I have a white backdrop which photographs well, albeit some shadows so may get a white / clear base also, but I haven't found a black backdrop and reflective surface combination yet.
I don't have any Insecticons. I wonder if I should spring for these. I know they were moved to the Reformatted line, but how well do they fit in with MP (as they were originally intended)?
I would probably give Shrapnel's bug legs a quickie with a black spray can.
They are good. The transformations are a pain in the ass, and they need the reprolabels but, they fit in well enough.
Are the badcube ones not available anymore? They were much cheaper.
I haven't seen them in stock anywhere, just over-priced on Ebay.
Hopefully this set will get some kind of Black Friday deal...
They might be on sale over the holidays and that might make them closer to reasonably priced.
ill let him reply but i feel like i tend to read that you have to do a bit of editing afterward to get the black-drop (ha!) to show as a solid background. someone even showed how they could do it on their phone with just that software. i trried with white and discovered Im just not a photographer and dont have the patience. now i just go for impact in my photos.
Is this set still readily available?
Turns. I've read the smartphone software version. Works well for iPhone, Android not so much. I have a DSLR and flashes, just need to get the right surface for the reflective effect. With the correct photography set up, you can achieve the all black background effect without any editing. I'm after feedback before buying anything more to help with creating the effect
There are some good photographers here, check with @Dezefticon, he does a lot of black backgrounds if you have a dslr then you’re wayyyyy ahead of the game.
Thanks! My DSLR was mainly for street photography and holidays when I lived in London. Only getting interested in 'product' photography now
Sale happening now with BBTS
That's more like it. Clear 'em out below cost! Much more reasonable price for those little $30 figures. I'm still going to pass as I plan to get the FT ones if they reissue and I'm okay with the BadCube ones until then.
I don't suppose anybody's got any pics of these guys with Ocular Max Rumble and Frenzy they could share for size comparison perhaps please?
I'm looking at changing out the official Frumble for the OM ones, but would prefer the bugs to be roughly head and shoulders above the tapes in bot mode...
$99.99 is a goddamned good price. I paid $110 shipped, and dont regret it.
35 bucks a figure is a deal for these guys, preordered a set. I am happy with the badcube set I own, but I was always interested in this set too.
I'm now good until Fans Toys finally gets around to re-releasing their set...
The reprolabels are 50% off, too. They are required, in my book.
