Can you do a screen shot of it and add it to the thread Clint ?

I don't know how Embarassed


I think the seller actually deserves some kudos for honestly describing what it is and selling it for a fairly reasonable price cheers

Hopefully our article has educated at least a couple collectors What a Face

I paid 20 for the black and green one . he has another for sale for 45$ Sad which is way too much .

maybe 20 was too much but I didn't care and feel it was worth it as from what I was gathering the more common is the plain beige . next up a red one !!! i'll be searching .

on a side note its funny how this hobby is bbecause i'm sitting here thinking how cool it would be if I could strip one of every figure to find killer colors and start a new collection ...

nah Evil or Very Mad foreign variants are pricey enough

From the pics you posted of your Horror posters Bill I can tell your smart phone actually takes pretty good photos Very Happy

There are 2 very basic things you can do to improve the pics of your figures .

Use a solid color background (grey like we use if you can get it) and place your figures at least 6 inches or so away from the background when photographing them .

This will allow your camera to focus only on the figures - the way you have other stuff in the back ground makes your camera fight itself to decide what to focus on and results in slightly blurry pics .

Its amazing how much detail can be brought out with photoshop (change lighting etc) but the one thing it can't do is make a out of focus figure sharper .

Try a solid color background and you'll be surprised at the improvement Very Happy
