As Seen on Discord

The SiPgoesTGIF weekly challenges have kicked off on Discord and Instagram. We are delighted that so many creative and enthusiastic toy photographers are joining in the fun. Our Discord channel is set up in a way that you can ask for feedback, show your behind-the-scenes process, or just chat to other like-minded people with a passion for toy photography. It really is a great place to learn and grow. We love the supportive and encouraging community that you have helped us create.

If you’re not on Discord, don’t fret. We’ve asked five members of our community to share their inspiration and/or process behind images they created for #SiPgoesTGIF_manifest and #SiPgoesTGIF_longexposure.

We Love Guitars


When The LEGO Group made the LEGO Ideas Fender Stratocaster 21329 they certainly hit some right notes. Both Jennifer and Chris rushed out to buy one to see if they could create some visual rhythm and rhyme, and to see how the set matched up to the real thing (they both happen to play guitar)

And what better way to rock start the year than with their musical review.

HispaBrick 37 On the Road

Our good friends over at The HispaBrick Magazine invited us to collaborate on issue 37 earlier this year. Little did we or they know the road ahead was going to be longer than expected.
We will let the HispaBrick crew explain about the bump in the road.
You can sit back and enjoy the ride in the latest 037 December 2021 edition.

Riding on Air

A few weeks ago, our good friends over at LEGO, sent us the newest and yet-to-be-released 42130 LEGO®Technic™ BMW M1000 RR for a photographic spin. Both Beverley and Natasja had the opportunity to take this ride out in the open air for amazing photoshoots, but the weather has not been kind to our two photogs.

Our one wanna be biker Bev brings you a little insight into what to expect followed by the official LEGO press release that launched earlier this week on the 9th December. And who does not like a juicy press release?

You can expect to see this superbike on sale January 1st, 2022 in a LEGO store near you.

This is Halloween

Hallow sounds like Hello doesn’t it? But Hallow holds a different meaning with lots of trick and treats connected to this pagon ritual. Hallow or holy person refers to the saints that are celebrated on All Saints’ Day which happens to be on November 1st. Therefore Halloween is an old fashion way of saying “the night before All Saints’ Day.

Heavy-Duty Tow Truck

When the call came in over the trucker radio station, actually it was over our Discord chat channel. But we thought it sounded cool to get into the zone as a trucker. Our dear friends over at The LEGO Group have provided us with the LEGO Technic Heavy-Duty Tow Truck #42128. We asked Bev and Astrid to take the truck out for a days work. Bev based in the United Kingdom and Astrid onboard in Germany. And this was the highlights of their day.

The Marvellous Blue Carpet Wrap

The Blue Carpet review is coming to an end. When LEGO shared with us a box of chocolate Marvel Minifigs we wanted to share the fun with all of you. We shared the initial preview of these gorgeous characters on our blue carpet review. A creative collaboration between our resident old school photog Boris and the Mistress of The Marvel Universe Bev that was published here some good three months ago.

We then shipped these Marvellous creatures to the Autumn Workshop heroes and they put our heroes to good use as you can see below.

But it did not stop there.

Shooting the deserts of Dune

It’s nearly time, after a long delay due to Covid restrictions, Denis Villeneuve’s version of the sci-fi classic Dune finally arrives in cinemas across Europe this month.

Although we predominantly shoot LEGO here at Stuck in Plastic, a lot of us also enjoy all sorts of toy photography. Being one of those people, I thought I’d share my experience of tackling the first wave of the Dune action figures from McFarlane.

Released nearly a year ago to coincide with the film’s original planned theatrical debut, not many people seemed to pick these figures up, and at the time of writing, you can still find them pretty cheap in a lot of toy store sales.
