Let’s See Your Boxed Vehicles & Playsets!

Post by the89thchris on Sat Nov 03, 2018 7:46 pm

Let’s See Your Boxed Vehicles & Playsets!

Why? Because I’m curious what you’ve got, AND because that type of stuff performs really well on our social media! rofl

I want to see nice, bright, dead on shots where you can see the whole front of the box, and if it’s a special variant or if you’ve got an interesting story as to where you picked it up, please share that too.

I’ve got a bunch that I’ll get around to photographing but I’m out on a work trip for the next 2-3 weeks.

Here’s one low quality photo of my two Canadian Tie Fighters that I took before I left:

I have a few boxed items, mostly picked up from ebay, i love the artwork on the vintage boxes, they have a uniqueness to them that the modern stuff just doesn't have
First up is my ATST walker, just the box as i am still looking for a nice example to pop in it, i think its a bi lingual box though not sure

cheers guys, hey Clint yeah the at-st box is in great shape for its age, love the box art on there, and yeah the 49p sticker Andy, one of the woolworths special buys, I have vivid memories of getting a rancor in the sale, can't remember what I paid but I do remember the pile of figures and toys all reduced, the figures in baggies for 99p, oh i wish it were possible to be able to go back and buy the lot now Very Happy

Whoa, did you take that first photo of the Death Star? That’s a pretty solid white background

I just want to double check with everyone that it’s ok if I share this stuff on the Instagram. alien

Yeah it's fine with me mate.
I took the death Star pic using a white background (white cartridge paper) then I think I just upped the brightness on the background, using Photoshop, to make it really clean looking. I haven't gotten around to photographing all my boxed items, vechles and playsets using the grey background yet. So these pics are quite old now.
