    This is a thread for Supah Cleah Pics featuring third-party Transformers toys!

    Mods have requested that content in the Supah Cleah Pics thread in the official toys forum be focused on official toys, so here's a thread for Supah Cleah Pics focusing on third-party toys! I will reuse the rules posted by @hardreturn in the official toys thread:

    ----------------

    TRANSFORMERS AND RELATED ITEMS ONLY


    This thread is for posting your quality, high-end pics. Lightbox pics, etc. This is to allow those who want to post their high-quality pics a place to showcase their photos, and help those who want to improve their photography skills.

    Here are some guidelines:
    LIGHTBOX-TYPE SHOTS ONLY, OR PHOTOGRAPHS WHICH MIND THEIR BACKGROUNDS: This thread is not for desktop or driveway photography. Use a background. Flexibility may be granted if utmost care is taken to ensure quality otherwise. No cellphone pics.
    PLEASE KEEP IMAGE SIZE TO A REASONABLE RESOLUTION: Preferably less than 1,000 pixels wide. Even though the forums will appear to resize your images, the entire file will load with every refresh and giant images will slow down the thread. Large images may be removed and the poster may repost a smaller version. Pics above 1,200 pixel-wide resolution are always way too big and will be removed immediately. Please shoot for around 1,000 pixels. Minor differences like 1,050 pixels are not an issue.
    HEAVY PHOTOSHOP USAGE OR ADDING OF EFFECTS BELONGS IN THE COOL STUFF THREAD: Minor effects like adding eye glow or such is fine, but the spirit of this thread is to showcase photography, not image editing. Please post heavily-modified images in the Cool Stuff thread instead.
    POSTS WHICH DO NOT MEET THE ESTABLISHED GUIDELINES MAY BE MOVED TO ANOTHER THREAD OR REMOVED: It's nothing personal, but this thread is designed to have a separate personality from the Cool Stuff thread with an emphasis on quality and helping your fellow TFW board member get things "just right."

    Guidelines may be adjusted going forward. But for the meantime, take some photos and have fun!

    It's what they've been calling the "high-quality pics with pro set-ups" thread since they started them a few years ago. Though I was rather hoping we'd ditched the phrase for something better by now.

    Heh. I thought it was weird that the 2019 thread only had four replies and was being necro'd. Then I saw that it was just started today. Less than two months to 2020.

    But yeah, I'll just put my lightbox photos in the 3P MP appreciation or Cool Stuff threads. I don't feel the need to be snooty about the quality.

    Thanks! I suppose I can technically get away with showing the high res version in this thread since the Megatron pistol came with KBB Thundercracker and the pic was taken in a light box :D
