Toy Chest Theater: Groot and Ant-Man by pop_tastic_man

Once in awhile, we get a shot that’s pure magic. Indeed, if I had to sum up this piece in one word, it would be magic.

What pop_tastic_man creates here is a truly wondrous, awe-inspiring moment between Baby Groot and Ant-Man. The bright expression on the face is perfect. Plus, there’s something about the way this picture highlights the detail in the figure’s hand. Somehow, that’s what drew me in and sealed the deal on this one.

Either way, this image wouldn’t be at all out of place in the trailer for a big Marvel Cinematic Universe release. Truly epic.

Toy Chest Theater: Iron Man and Spidey by cgeRock

Some of my favorite pieces are the ones you look at and say, “How’d they do that?” Is it a computer effect? Is it somehow practical?

But the honest truth is, I don’t want to know. Why ruin the magic? And this photo by cgeRock definitely has that magic to it. Along with  a few warm fuzzies. Uncle Tony gives Peter a helping hand. What’s not to love?

The star of this photo is, oddly enough, the water itself. Not just the way it’s reacting to Iron Man, but the natural intrigue of what happens to that suit when it’s submerged. We’re inclined to think it’ll short out, or that it’s integrity will give due to the water pressure.

But this is Tony Stark we’re talking about. And of course, it’s comic book science. Still, it’s not often toy photography tickles that part of your brain.
