Subtitled The Pop Culture Photography Of Daniel Picard, book showcases the artist/ photographer’s pictures of action figures and statuettes in real world situations.
This is your chance to see Snowtroopers clearing snow off their SUVs, Harley Quinn taking a selfie and Buffy’s Gentlemen taking their dogs for a walk.
The franchise mash- ups are particularly fun – notably Tim the Enchanter from Monty Python And The Holy Grail giving orders to Knights Of The Old Republic’s Darth Malgus.
It’s effectively a really classy advert for Sideshow Collectibles, as their range of figures and statuettes provides the entire cast of the book.
There’s a foreword from Simon Pegg and an afterword from Kevin Smith, both of whom are big fans of Picard’s work ( and the wonders of action figures).
