This week's offering explores the value of toy paperwork. Hopefully what can usually be seen as a topic less interesting than the toys themselves is spiced up a bit by some of the more interesting literature we've seen released with toys globally:

Hi guys,

I wanted to give my light tent and lamps a good run out so I picked up a variety of toys to photograph with the new equipment, see if I can improve my article photography. Here are a few of the highlights, but I notice that unlike before when I was taking photos by the window, some of the feet of the robots are out of focus, almost as if the depth of focus has reduced for some reason despite me using the same settings on the camera. Could it be that I need to lower the lamps a little?

Anyway here we go:

1) Diaclone Black Honda City Turbo (Skids)

Image


2) Human Alliance Sideswipe

Image


3) Masterpiece Grimlock MP-08

Image


4) Mexican Black Prowl:

5) Mexican Smokescreen/Bluestreak hybrid

Image

Image


6) Euro post-MB Starscream (hard nose, black wheels - source of Mexican mould)

Image

Image


7) Human Alliance Barricade

Image



8) Mexican Iga Ramjet (hard nose, black wheels, metallic wing finish)

Image

Thanks for looking :)

All the best
Maz

Hey all,

This week sees me go back to one of my all time favourite areas of TF collecting, Mexican Iga G1 variants. I realised I had enough new material and pictures to write another article on this niche collecting favourite thanks to a few decent variants I got my hands on recently.

Highlights include:

- Mexican Megatron
- Mexican Metroplex
- Another Mexican Smokescreen/Bluestreak hybrid
- Good old Black 'Policia' Prowl
- Mexican Ramjet

And a link to last week's article, "Micro Change Series in Italy"

Cheers for looking :)

All the best
