Winner winner, lobster dinner!

lobster lovin' Batman

Wow!

Thanks for all the wonderful responses to our LEGO Batman Movie Collectable Minifigures giveaway. We were truly blown away, not only by the sheer volume of entries, but how Stuck In Plastic has made impact on it’s readers over the past twelve months.

As you may know, I’ve been away for the past fortnight or so, down the coast camping with family and friends. I had little to no internet connection whilst away. So, to come back to over 50 responses left my head swimming. Each comment I read was the winner. Then I’d read the next, and that was the winner. It wasn’t easy picking just one from all the wonderful entries. Continue reading “Winner winner, lobster dinner!”

The LEGO Batman Movie Minifigures Review

In the episodes following cliff-hangers in the 1960s TV series of Batman, narrator William Dozier would briefly recap the previous episode. Sadly, William is no longer with us, so you’ll just have to read my previous post to catch up.

For those you who are up to speed, let’s jump right into the heroes from the upcoming LEGO Batman Movie Minifigures series. Continue reading “HOLY MINIFIGURES, BATMAN (part 2)!”

The LEGO Batman Movie Minifigures Review

I’ve never been a completionist when it comes to the Collectable Minifigure Series’. Sure, I’ll snap up multiples of the ones I really like, Hotdog Guys, Zombie Cheerleaders, Sharks, Penguins, but I’ve never been one to complete a series just for the sake of completing a series. However, when I first saw The LEGO Batman Movie Minifigures, I wanted them all. Come on! There’s not a weak link in this series. And it’s Batman! Continue reading “HOLY MINIFIGURES, BATMAN!”

Connections Reflections

Things I’m learnding!

As we surge towards the end of another year, it seems appropriate that I reflect on this year as a member of the Stuck In Plastic collective. I’d best get it out of the way early, because if all goes to plan (which it rarely does) the next couple of posts from me should take care of themselves. Plus, if I don’t write it now, chances are I’ll forget. Continue reading “Connections Reflections”

Portrait vs Poor Trait

Is it a poor trait of the LEGO minifigures?

It was noted, as we were deciding which images to include in the next BricksCulture magazine article last Sunday/Monday (a bloody hard task I might add due to the sheer awesomeness of all the submissions), that the majority of the photos submitted were landscape format.

This got me thinking. Continue reading “Portrait vs Poor Trait”

The ambiguity of stuff

End of shift on Endor

ambiguity

[am-bi-gyoo-i-tee]
noun
doubtfulness or uncertainty of meaning or intention

stuff
[stuhf]
noun
material to be worked upon or to be used in making something

Whilst fleshing out the next BricksCulture article about Star Wars, we touched on the subject of the Stormtroopers and their adoption by the LEGO photography community. These endearing characters have become a favourite amongst us as subject matters. Despite their faces being hidden behind their buckets, a raft of emotions can be portrayed with these much-loved characters. Continue reading “The ambiguity of stuff”

Forced Perspective?

Peek-A-BB-Boo

Um, I think it’s just perspective when you’re lying in the dirt photographing toys?

The forced perspective technique sways our perception with the use of optical illusions to make objects appear larger, smaller, further away, or closer than they actually are. It manipulates perception through the use of scaled objects and the correlation between them and the vantage point of the camera. Continue reading “Forced Perspective?”
