At least once a year, as kids, my buddy Derek and I would do a "Set Up". This entailed getting out all his Godzilla toys and other monsters, posing, and photographing them to tell little stories that only existed in our heads. It was in a time before digital photography so we were limited to a single roll of film. It was very nice of his mom to allow us to use her camera and get the pictures developed for us.
This photo features Ultraman fighting the Rancor in a potted house plant. It's one of my favorites because it has one of the best backdrops we ever had. The trunk and leaves gave it a little more of real feeling compared to most of our pictures taken at random places around the house.
Ultraman has the Rancor on the defensive. A battle for the AGES!!ReplyDelete
This awesome I just love it and the rancor would fit well in Ultraman's universe.ReplyDelete
I like setting up pics like this now myself!ReplyDelete
Oh yeah, I still enjoy it today. This was just a really big deal when we were kids. We would plan it for weeks and make little props. Then I'd sleep over at Derek's and we'd spend all day setting the stuff up, taking pictures, and then putting everything away.Delete
Reminds me of when my best friend and I would film terrible Godzilla movies with figures. We'd spend all night setting things up. In one, I had our local mayor (or his action figure approximation) pull out his beta capsule and become Ultraman... Then they had an epic battle.ReplyDelete
Ha, sounds cool. My buddies and I do Stop Motion Animation videos with toys (including Godzilla and Ultraman)Delete
