Candid Toy Pics

I have always wanted to try more of this and decided that on Fridays I will try and post a candid toy pic. Be warned I may not get to it every Friday, but I will try. I laid down a few rules for myself on these.

1) Phoning it in, meaning I am going to shoot them with the phone. That drawing desk picture last Saturday was a phone pic, I thought it turned out pretty good, they may not always turn out that way.

2) Limited to no explanation. I have always liked photos people have shot of their collections just hanging out on shelves or or wherever. I especially like when you don't know what or where that toy is from and you either have to ask or track them down online.

3) Captions, sometimes yes, sometimes no.

4) Very Limited to no set ups. That drawing desk image was really what was happening on the desk at the time, with the exception of the wrestler playing with the micro machines Slave I. I sometimes pose the toys and walk off and leave them and then come back and laugh, so I thought that would be the only posing, nothing shot specific.

5) Photoshop only to reduce the image size to my blog "standard" no cropping, though I may have cropped the desk party... okay no cropping from here on out.

So without explanation (except for above, I have to start somewhere), no caption this time, no set up, Photoshop to reduce and phoning it in...

And I guess i'm going to be the one to ask the toy question: Which R2 is that?

I like too, look forward to more. The portion of the sandcrawler makes this.

Thanks everyone!

Stephen, glad you asked. That is the 90's 12" scale Power of the Force R2. It's the plain version, I believe they had a version with the extra arms and tools that R2 uses. Somebody should make a blog documenting the Hasbro 12" line that would be awesome.
