It seems a like a hybrid to me. I see mostly t30, but with some elements of kingdom.
it looks like the t30's head and body but with the kingdoms arms and legs
Daylight, no flash, no actual sunbeams, and take 3-4 shots of each one so you have a few examples to choose amongst.
kingdom rhinox's bot mode seems heavily influenced on his forged to fight design
Here, I'll throw this one up as an example. Compared to others I've seen posted...they feel super poopy and low quality (even with a high quality camera). It feels super zoomed out, and very gritty even with extra light from a lightbox.
The shield is a bit blurry but his face is in focus, you have a clean background, and overall it's not too bad of a picture. Some people take better ones, but IMHO you're over-thinking it. Just have fun plenty of people will appreciate your pics.
Anyone do the old Joe Weider ad with Hot Rod and Rodimus?
Take your photo at a different angle from the light source. If you face the subject of your photo directly into the light and then take the photo from a close to the same angle, it takes away a lot of the shadows and I find that leads to a slightly washed out or over-bright looking picture. If you turn the subject of your photo slightly out of the light and take the photo at an angle compared to the light source, you get some good shadows and angles into your photo and it immediately adds some more depth. Below I've come up with two quick examples, Galvatron facing directly into my lamp, and then turned about 45 degrees out of it to catch more shadows
As a continuation of the above idea, it's often helpful to have a strong, solid light source coming from one direction. This will give your photo a sharper and more contrasting tone. Find a darkish room, maybe in the evening when the outside light is starting to fade, and set a good desk lamp 2 or 3 feet away from your subject. That's what I've done with the above photos for Galvatron
Also, color editing is often very important. A lot of times you'll catch an average photo but some smart photo editing can really bring it to life. Here's what I was able to do with your photo with about 5 minutes in a pretty basic photo editor. Upped the saturation a bit, messed with the shadows, and tweaked the white scale a little
As one last tip, it can help to bring your subject forward, away from the background a couple of inches. Having the backdrop right behind the subject can sometimes lead to the end picture feeling a little bit cramped
Where did you get the articulated hands for Galvatron
It's "Little Godzilla" from the Godziban YouTube puppet show.
not a pro but 2 -3 light sources with diffusers and just play around with it and see how it feels or what kind of effect you’re looking with the placements of the lights . Shot these with an iphone
"I seem to have contracted some type of growth"
My kingdom wingfinger finally arrived.
The figure is awesome! Great articulation,
In both Bot mode and dino mode.
Hands can hold the sword pointing straight.
Plus I made a DIY energy arrow to use with his bow. I very happy with this figure.
Optimus prime: "this is grimlock's blaster. We usually use this kind of weapons to fight the deceptions"
Grimlock: "where is wingfinger eyes?"
Grimlock: "why is wingfinger skinny?"
"From TF:UK#85 'Target:2006'
Does your Siege Magnus have leg extensions?

Grimlock: "it will come don't worry"
