    I bought the dr wu war-bot kit at a toy show recently. For ten bucks :)  it comes with additional chrome pieces, but the Gatling guns look the best. And I was lucky on getting the stealth mirage early enough. I don't know what he goes for now. He's a great figure though. I like him over MMC's standard release. I have the shoulder launcher adapter on him so his launcher can articulate and point another direction besides down :)

    Hey Maz, have you tried editing RAW files directly in Photoshop? When you open them, it automatically puts you into a RAW editor window where you can adjust settings before it actually opens in PS. Just curious if you have and what you feel is different/better by doing it in Lightroom instead. I've never bothered with Lightroom because of the RAW editing capabilities in PS have been fine for me but I know Lightroom is specifically for photos.

    Hey dude!

    I think my version of Photoshop is too old for RAW format, especially as my camera produces CR2 files, so I am unable to help with that comparison :( .

    However, I am utterly adoring LR right now, it's giving me results I didn't think were possible with my skillset or camera. I think 75% of the work is being done by the RAW shooting but being able to correct white balance, shadows and the like in LR is heaven sent.

    Forgive me for the content, regulars, this is a pic I took last night and I think it's among my best:

    All the best

    And I hope you'll forgive the sizeable 3P inclusion in these, but they were a lot of fun. :)

    Got it! Yeah, the point is shooting in RAW format is pretty amazing because of all the adjustments you can make. It's almost like the settings you shoot with don't matter anymore. Of course, I still try to shoot exactly how I want the images to come out with little to no adjustments but having the option is fantastic. Glad you found another way to improve on your already great pics!


    Whatup sixo?! I was wondering where you were but I noticed you take long hiatus from here once in a while so never mentioned it. Always a pleasure to see and your work back here.
