Music And The 80’s

Some Thoughts From @pulup

We’ve been posting quite some articles about the new collectible minifigures series 20 as of lately. These articles came to life because we sent out some minifigs into the great wide open, so that some of you could review them and take pics to share on our blog.

We also sent some to Burak. For some time it seemed that the mail wouldnt be delivered in time to become part of this review series. Fortunately, Hermes seems to have worked his divine powers on this one and Burak got mail. Here is what he replied to us.

The Garage Band

Pulup and the Crazy Wigs!

Early 1980s, studying in a German high school in Istanbul, I was naturally introduced to German pop bands before anything else. I was particularly impressed by the New Wave genre. Alphaville‘s excellent debut album Forever Young (1984) was the first vinyl I purchased. I remember one day, after listening to Big in Japan for more than a hundred times, I decided to make music of my own.

We can live like Jack and Sally

Getting to finally meet you…

More than six years …

I have been on Instagram for more than 6 years, though I posted my first ever Lego photo early 2012. Ever since I have followed a lot of great toy photographers. After being a part of a community for so long, and looking at their photos every day, you start recognizing some photographers from their photos without even looking at their names.
I am certain that many of you feel the same way for some of us out there.
It’s not only the figures or the backgrounds etc. that make us recognizable. We all have a unique style that makes us different from each other. Continue reading “Getting to finally meet you…”

My First Toy Photo – Pulup

I stepped into toy photography a couple of years after I bought my first DSLR camera. Back in those days, I was walking around at least once a week, taking my own concept-photo trips in the city, though mostly taking shots of cats, graffiti and beer on the streets of Istanbul (no surprise here). After I bought my first iPhone, I became addicted to Hipstamatic and Instagram, and frankly I started to use my DSLR less often. After a while I started to buy Lego to add color to my photos, which became a big hobby of mine with almost thousand mini figures and more than three thousand Lego photos to date.
