Our 2nd installment in the IAT 2011 Retrospective is here: Highlights & Disappointments. Instead of doing separate lists, Vault and I tried a more back-and-forth round table article about what we liked and what we didn’t. It was an interesting effort, even though there wasn’t much disagreement.
This week, Vault & I will be looking back at the figures of 2011, what we enjoyed, and what we didn’t. Today, we’re kicking things off with a simple top ten. Vault and I have split the duties, each crafting a list of our five favorite figures released in 2011.
Day Four of Scarabus Week focuses on accessories! Some of you might have noticed that I did a little rewrite to the Day 3 review because I wasn't satisfied with it. I realized the pictures could tell the story without my commentary. So today, I've decided to literally let the pictures tell the tale. All 18 of 'em.
Day Three arrives and there's been a slight change in plans. I absconded to the studio late last night to take pictures of Horos & Thothos for the paint article, but the colorful figures had other plans. They (or maybe me) wanted to focus on articulation for today, so the pics took a turn for movement.
Day Two of Scarabus week may be running a bit late, but I hope you won't mind once you see the pictures. Today, I'm focusing on the sculpt and since that's the one aspect that any picture can show, I thought I'd try & spice this one up with a little help from Scarabus' two alternate looks: Demon Fire & Dormant Form!
Do you remember the last time you were captivated by a new toy? I don't mean rediscovering MOTU in its Classics form or finally seeing the appeal of Golden Pharaoh when he's been realized in six inches. I mean a new toy - no cartoon or movie, no history, or nostalgia. Just a little pillar of plastic awesomeness.
