The Dark Knight Returns

Armand Sunday, November 23, 2008

The photos of my Hot Toys Dark Knight from my previous post didn't really do the figure justice. So I though I'd give it another shot and make this set a bit more dramatic, fitting for Batman.

I used only one light source for the shots, using a dimmer (which you can pick up at IKEA) to just soften the light source. Had to use the tripod to accommodate the low shutter speed and high aperture. Pictures turned out pretty neat if I do say so myself.

Nice pics man....this may well be the catalyst for me to finally pick this up myself. Not sure how my wallet feels tho cause I've just burst my bank buyin Bank Robber Joker! heheh...

Great blog/pictures!

Armand said...

Thanks Rebel Collector! A Joker needs a Batman and vice versa. I'm waiting for the second batch of Jokers which are coming in March (cos I was too late with the preorder for the first batch).

Just do what we all collectors mostly do; buy first regret later. Hehe!

Thanks again for dropping by!

Damn....that's what my inner self is saying to me nowadays....hahah! Joker needs a Batman.....

Does the 2nd batch of Joker in Mar 09 utilizes the new head sculpt? Still using the original sculpt frm the 1st release?

Do u know anywhr that still sells the TDK? At a fair price of course...

I dont really know Rebel Collector. But I got my bank robber joker so I can change the heads if i feel its necessary.

Where r u from btw? If you're in Singapore you could try China Square Central and head over to U-Toys antiques and collectibles. I think he still has one or two left. If not you could just wait for Sunday's flee market and shop around.

Alernatively, try Plaza Singapura and head to the top floor. There's a toy store there I think I saw a TDK there.

If you're in KL, then try XL Shop either in Berjaya Times Square (ask for Sam) or Midvalley Megamall

Hope this helps bro. Now go and score Batman, hahaha!
