    Maz whenever I see your shots it reminds me that we were so close to getting a photo-heavy album of G1 toys before Hasbro stepped in. If I recall, mumblings were that they'd be working WITH the aspiring author, but whatever the case I hope the resulting photography is half as clean as what you put out.

    Oh thanks dude, very kind of you! I think their photography was better than mine as Brr-Icy and Hyperoptic are hugely accomplished toy photographers. Haven't heard any news of that book for ages now.

    Here's Needlenose!

    I beg to differ! Yours are equally good and these are awesome! I love how clean they are

    Just noticed the quote, apologies! I think @Tony_Bacala said it pretty well. My photos looked exactly like this too so don't worry about it. I think the trick is to keep working your camera and set-up (surroundings) to see what works. When I moved last year, I noticed that I had to make minor changes to my set-up and also camera settings simply because the ambient lighting is different. To me, shooting in infinite black is challenging and getting it to the right feel will take time. It's a journey for me and I'm still on it after so many years.

    That is extremely kind of you, mate, thank you! And you are right about infinite black photography, it's a heck of a challenge, I simply was not able to make it work!

    This seems to be a bit trickier to pull off in bot mode. Tell me what you think! Also, any ideas as to how to deal with the glaring off his chrome parts?

    Ceji Transformers G1 Dirge (1986). French-manufactured. Black plastic wheels front & back, hard plastic nosecone that doesn't sit flush w/ fuselage. Both Ceji Dirges I've had, the bombs don't stay connected to wings. Honestly thrilled to have this variant back in my collection!
