I’m not at all sure what that black goo is that Evil Axiotl used for this photo. But whatever it is, it’s working for me. The effect is awesome!

Toy Chest Theater: Green Rangers, Father and Son

By Rob Siebert

For timing reasons, I couldn’t resist this shot from Dafranchise. Not just because three new episodes of Power Rangers Dino Fury drop on Netflix today, but because of the Father’s Day connection. In the graphic novel Power Rangers: Soul of the Dragon, Tommy Oliver’s son JJ grows up to become the Green S.P.D. Ranger, complete with his dad’s old dragon shield. And of course, the Lightning Collection figures make for a great shot.

Toy Chest Theater: Ghostbusters Day with Mitchel Wu

I’ve been looking for an excuse to feature a Mitchel Wu shot for awhile. Low and behold, an opportunity has presented itself. Wu posted this image just in time for today, the 37th anniversary of the release of Ghostbusters, a.k.a. Ghostbusters Day!

Fun fact: In The Nightmare Before Christmas, Zero (seen below) was voiced by Frank Welker, an iconic voice actor who also voiced Ray Stantz and Slimer in The Real Ghostbusters.

Toy Chest Theater: Stormtroopers by Ryan Mitchell

By Rob Siebert

Well, you knew we had to do something with Star Wars today, what with it being May the Fourth. I’ve always liked Ryan Mitchell‘s shots. Obviously, he has a knack for images that look like old timey war photos. This one in particular has always stood out to me. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s an action shot. It looks like there’s just been an explosion nearby…

Toy Chest Theater: Hulk vs. Doomsday by Anthony Mattea

By Rob Siebert
Fanboy Wonder

I’m a sucker for a good water shot. So naturally, this shot from Anthony Mattea has a lot of appeal for me. Mattea has a lot of shots like this on his page. But in this one I can practically hear the respective roars of Hulk and Doomsday. Any time a toy pic can activate one of your other four senses, chances are it’s a good one.

Toy Chest Theater: Bebop & Rocksteady Do Easter

By Rob Siebert

I can’t believe they sell these figures. It’s a testament to just how beloved that original TMNT animated series is.

This shot from tone.toys was done in Times Square in New York City. The funny thing? Two mutants in bunny suits probably isn’t the weirdest thing you’d seen in Times Square on a given day.
